The folks at FITS have an obsession with comfort. FITS designed its Light Hiker Crew Sock with the Full Contact Fit system for a perfect fit that won't move around or bunch up and a lightly padded sole that absorbs shock while remaining ultra-lightweight.
FITS has been my go to sock brand after getting my hands on a pair of the Light Hiker Crew Socks at a trade show a few years back. Those sock are still going strong for me, and I have a hard time buying anything else because the feel & durability has really been incredible. Decided it was time for a new pair of the light hiker and not much has changed, they're still an incredibly comfy sock that feels brand new every time I put them on. I honestly feel better during the day when I have these on.
Fits is definitely my favorite brand of sock. They are more comfortable than SmartWool and DarnTough and hold their shape very well. They tend to run a little narrow and tight which I really enjoy. I have the comparable sock in Darn Tough and it gets beyond smelly. I wear these with the same shoes and I don't have that problem. I would highly recommend these socks even for every day use.
I have to say that after owning several pairs of nice mountaineering socks, nothing has held up like the FITS socks (2 pair) I have had for about 6 months. Best part: After getting them soaked in stream, I set them on a rock for enough time to eat lunch and they were dry. That converted me.
Very comfortable without being too bulky, great padding. Hold its shape very well, even after several uses and washes, and fits great. Doesn't bunch up or rides down. Very breathable, will keep you warm in cold weather, and nice and breathy in hot weather. Dries really fast. Great product, better than smartwool.
Hiked a couple of 14ers in CO in AUG 13. Nothing technical, "just" a walk up/down. Nice support, no bunching or blistering, and kept warm when the weather didn't. Didn't feel heavy considering the performance. My only wish would be more choices in color.
These are the best socks I have ever owned for hiking. I used to buy only Smartwool and tried these on the recommendation of a friend. I am sure glad I did. The fit is better than Smartwool and they are just as comfortable.
Top of the line comfort and performance, my favorite socks for sure!
