As the holiday shopping season kicks off with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I hope you take advantage of the Thorlo sock promotion for your scout this Christmas. These wool socks are awesome for winter camping, snow sports or just playing outside in the cold.
For the past two years, I have picked up a few pairs of these socks for my own kids. Sports Authority in the Salt Lake area carries this brand in four colors (blue, black, pink, purple). It has worked out well for us since each kid gets their own color to avoid any arguments about which socks are whose.
From a Scouting perspective, this is the first year I’m aware of BSA-specific colors available through this promo (green and uniform olive). While BSA colors are only available at participating Scout shops or online through ScoutStuff.org, I think any of these choices make for a great stocking stuffer or small gift from a sibling.
The style of Thorlo’s I’ve purchased in the past are the “Kids’ Snow Moderate Cushion Over-Calf” at $14.99 each. With the Buy 3 get 1 Free promo, they come out to about $11 each.
This offer runs from November 15th through December 31st on all socks by Thorlo, while supplies last.
Whatever you decide to do here, just help your boy avoid cotton socks on his next Klondike or other winter adventures!
