Odorless Socks for Traveling
By Max Hartshorne
MP Magic socks are the world's best odorless socks, says their manufacturer. These socks are made from world's very unique fabrics, These fabrics are not one, but three metal infused: Silver, Copper, and Zinc.
Multiple metals can kill more types of bacteria, the antibacterial effects will be much better than with a single metal. Silver is known as a great antibacterial metal, copper can kill bacterias and it is also a key component of many enzymes, Zinc can reduce the bacterial and odor after a long day of traveling.
This three metal infused technique was applied in Aerospace Industry. With these functional fabrics, you can take off your shoes without any hesitation. The world's unique fabrics are only the start, the socks were designed to perfectly match the human foot shape, make that part super breathable and durable!
With metal infused, this socks can transfer heat more efficiently, and more durable! Two pairs of ankle socks, two pairs of crew socks $42. MP Magic Socks Kickstarter page
These pants have a solid feel, heavy enough to last, but not so heavy that they'll drag you down. They are already slightly faded, and the inside lining is white, giving them a little more heft. Six pockets for all of your stuff. Definitely a cut above most corduroys in this price range. Craghoppers Bardsey Cord, Ombre Blue, 38"$65

The Multitube has a variety of uses all winter long...from a neckwarmer, to a headscarf, to a balaclava, eight different ways to wear it. This one is particularly well made, of merino wool with rabbit fur lining.Merino Wool Tubular Headwear $26.99
Craghoppers Women's Half Zip and Voyager Hybrid Jacket
This half-zip fleece is surprisingly cuddly and thicker than expected. It's made of recycled bottles! This is a great layering piece. In fact, the GoNOMAD writer who is reviewing this swapped out one thick and beat-up heavy down coat and slipped into this and the Voyager Hybrid Jacket and was just as toasty!
"So comfortable! With a bag to carry it and a special cell phone and headphones pocket! Super duper lightweight but still incredibly warm. I love this jacket! And the fleece is super soft, cozy, and warm, yet stylish. Excellent products."

Women's Voyager Hybrid Jacket
The Voyager Hybrid jacket is made with Gore-tex Windstopper fabric to the sleeves and body and the breast pocket has a useful feature--it's an RFID shield to prevent accidental or deliberate misuse of credit cards or passports by blocking radio signals from activating the card's chip. Craghoppers Womens/Ladies Voyager Hybrid Water Resistant Jacket (Black) $140
Gant Donegal Blazer
If you're heading out traveling, do yourself a favor and bring a blazer like this one, made by Gant. Our Associate Editor Stephen Hartshorne recalls visiting a high-class casino in Germany one trip, and the bouncer at the door only let him in because he was wearing a jacket. Lesson learned, in some countries, they still wear jackets and ties and this is a very well-made blazer in an attractive dark green color.
This will stand up to many visits to the casino or to the country club, or just to look a little classier when you emerge from the elevator in your hotel on the way to dinner. Go for the high-quality jacket like this, you won't regret it. Gant Men's Donegal Tartan Green Men's Blazer $425
