You can’t overvalue a great pair of hiking socks: they keep your feet comfortable and dry while helping to prevent blisters and hotspots. So how do you choose the right one? Simple - pick socks made from Merino Wool.
The fact that Merino Wool is a lot softer and finer than regular wool makes it a lot more comfortable. But, this isn’t even the only advantage of merino wool, it also provides more warmth in comparison with regular wool. It’s actually pretty impressive how much warmth this lightweight material can provide.
Oh and one last thing, merino wool is great against odor. So, in some situations you might benefit from gifting a pair of merino wool socks to your hiking partner (especially if you share the same tent).
