Smartwool socks

If you have to evacuate by foot, there's one piece of additional clothing you'll invariably wish you had — and which you're likely to forget unless it's already inside your go-bag. That's a pair of dry socks. We adore Smartwool socks — the wool keeps you remarkably warm or cool and repel bad smells. Stuff a pair for each family member in their respective bags (and maybe switch out with an appropriate pair for winter/summer as the seasons progress). Also great to keep you warm in the winter.
