Use Socks as an Inexpensive Wrist Protection Against Thorns

When clearing double-edge thorny brush I used heavy jeans stuffed into boots, a thick shirt, leather gloves, a tied-on wide-brim hat to protect the face; and foot sections of worn-out socks as an inexpensive wrist protection against thorns.

The author suggests using old socks as an inexpensive wrist protection against thorns when cutting back woodland brush. 

I'm clearing woodland of vicious vine with double-edge thorns that make bloody ribbons of exposed flesh. For protection I wear heavy jeans stuffed into boots, a thick shirt, leather gloves, and a tied-on wide-brim hat to protect my face. My wrists still suffered, though, as I reached out and up. So I cut off the foot sections of worn-out socks as an inexpensive wrist protection against thorns. Works fine!
