Len, surely a Harris will hold up your dirty socks?!
On a serious note, the Atlas will spoil you in a quick hurry as it adapts to less than ideal terrain situations MUCH easier, thus ensuring I get the most stability possible for my shot.

I completely understand the Harris for drying the socks. The Harris is a very versatile bipod. You might consider the leg extensions though, to get the whole sock off the ground. Nice pair of boots also. But, how, exactly, does the Hershey's Bar fit into this scenario? Are they a sponser? :-)

Re: Why I use Atlas bipods - #1
Aren't your socks suppose to be OD green??
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
