I have an upcoming trip which is going to be a little longer than I typically do. As a result, I’ve been thinking about how my feet will fare as they aren’t as durable as I’d like them to be.
I have both the Body Glide and Hydropel products and I was hoping to get opinions as to which is best, if I should bring both or just one, and how often I should apply it. I have used the Body Glide before and found it to be acceptable. I have no long term experience with Hydropel. Weight is a concern and I'd rather not bring a stick of Body Glide if I could just squirt a bit of the Hydropel into something lighter. I don’t plan on using it on other parts of my body...although that may change if something unexpected happens.
This will be for an April trip on the Appalachian Trail. I typically wear Darn Tough socks with Inov-8 GTX 318’s.
