Gear Heads - Socks

Regardless of how long a trip’s duration carry three pairs of socks. It’s best to switch off each day so that the previous days’ socks have a chance to dry out. However, sometimes a day is not enough, thus having a third pair is a good backup. Socks should be made of wool or a synthetic material. Make sure you wear socks of the appropriate thickness for your trek.
