Just because these hiking and backpacking socks are labelled lightweight, you can bet your bottom dollar that they're going to save your feet more than anything you'll find in most stores. Every now and again, you're going to find yourself on a path that has been churned up by other hikers or simply not what you were expecting. Jagged rocks sticking up will no doubt be cushioned by your boots, but why not give yourself a little bit of added protection with a pair of good, hard-wearing trail socks. Not only will they keep your feet safe from harm, the softness and warmth that they will provide will also stand you in good stead for a comfortable, chill-free hike.
