The Best Socks for Outdoors

Keeping your extremities warm and dry is a priority when hiking and camping. Believe it or not, one of the most essential pieces of outdoor clothing is socks! What happens if you find a great-fitting boot but it is not waterproof? Buy a pair of Gore-Tex socks to put inside the boot to keep your feet dry. Gore-Tex is a heat-retaining fabric that is used in many other clothing items as well, such as gloves, jackets, scarves, and hats.
