I have been using Clear Armor ear muffs for indoor and outdoor range shooting. I suffer from hearing loss in both ears. The loss came from four years in Nam with guns blazing, howitzers blasting, and bombs falling. The deterioration was gradual but last June I had to get two hearing aids to compensate for that and old age. I have good earmuffs for hearing protection. But I am going on an extended backpacking trip this spring and I will be visiting outdoor ranges along the way. I will be hiking, not driving so weight and bulk is an issue. Some good earplug protection would save a lot of space. I have never used plugs. I have spent quite some time researching them on the Internet. I has been like trying to read alphabet soup. Very few to none in accurate assessments. I see lots of reviewers wearing plugs in YouTube videos. So I need a bit of advice hopefully based on personal experience. Any thoughts offered will be appreciated.
