Depending on your location, hiking season has already begun or is just around the corner. First things first: if you don’t already have them, get yourself a pair of proper socks. Hiking socks best the ordinary cotton mid-calves in every way: they’re more durable, they’re warmer, most have anti-stink properties and all are more comfortable for walking miles on end than anything that comes in an eight-pack. The downside is always price; the best hiking socks can cost as much as $25 a pair. Luckily you only need a few, and many of our favorites are currently on sale at Backcountry for 20 percent off or more.
