Gear Review: FITS Light Hiker Quarter

The unusually deep heel pocket in these socks contours to feet perfectly, and doesn't bunch.

“I hike farther and faster in these socks,” insists our veteran tester, who says that their precise fit eliminated the need to stop and air out her feet. The unusually deep heel pocket contours perfectly, never bunching. The blend of nylon, poly, merino (71 percent), and spandex is a bit slower to dry than all-wool, but has proven more durable over time.
