Clothing that is breathable and moisture-wicking is essential for such a long-distance walk, where the most common injuries will arise from friction and irritation from materials. To cross that finish line it's imperative that your clothes can manage the sweat from your hard work. This performance expectation extends from our heads and most importantly to our toes, where injuries to the feet can make for unnecessary discomfort. Clothing that contains merino wool offers the advantage of being breathable, moisture-wicking and thermoregulating. While technical synthetic materials can offer a lighter weight alternative that dries more rapidly.
