Fits Ultra Light Hiker Low Review
Socks are, well… socks. What is there really to say? Well, for those of us who are active, you know that socks have the power to enable or ruin your fun. Striving to create a sock that responds to all sock complaints (they itch, they fall down, they bunch, etc.), Fits researched what it is that bothers us most about the part of our wardrobe we all used to think least about. When socks do their job, you don’t notice them – the people at Fits took on the job of noticing the unnoticed, and produced some great “fitting” socks.
Fits calls their system F3 tech – meaning Fit, Feel and Function – I’ll take you briefly through all three. In terms of fit, the heel and toe are snug, and stay firmly in place without constricting. I liked them on hikes and wearing to work because they don’t slide around in your shoe. In terms of feel, Fits constructed them out of a wool (73%) and nylon/spandex/polyester blend. This means that they feel ultra soft, even after multiple wears. As for function, the sock does admirably well not only on hikes, but also for running and everyday wear. I wore them in everything from hiking boots to clogs, and liked them in every shoe.
Fits Sock Co. offers their F3 tech in products for both casual and active (e.g. hiking, running, skiing) use. They have multiple heights, densities, colors, and sizing options. Fits socks tend to run true to size.
