What’s the fastest way to shut down a cold weather adventure? Arguably the most important part of any cold weather clothing system is your socks. This is because if your feet become damp or wet, then your adventure could be ruined. We recommend that if you are heading out this fall/winter for an adventure, that you invest in a top quality pair of merino socks that are both comfortable and protect your feet from the moisture. In our experience, we have found that the FITS Heavy Expedition Sock made from merino wool isone of the best socks on the market to provide comfort and warmth on cold days in the U.P.. It provides extra cushioning to your lower leg and foot while giving plenty of arch support for a perfect fit. Field tested in hunting blinds as well as ice climbing above Lake Superior, these are hands down the best socks we have worn! After multiple seasons of use the socks still hold their form and do not ‘bag out” and drop off our calfs. The extra cushioning is super comfortable and provides the warmth you need during the cold Upper Peninsula months.
It cannot be stated enough about how important your choice of socks are when it comes to fall or winter activities in the U.P. The three most important factors to look for are comfort, insulation, and overall thickness to make sure the socks are warm and the FITS Heavy Expedition Socks provides all of these factors.
The ultimate combination: Merino wool for cold weather insulation and the performance that comes from a perfect fit. There is no other heavyweight sock that can make this claim. If there were, we would have made it! This sock is loaded with 100% Merino wool on the inside against your foot, so all you feel is comfortable and dry.
- Heavyweight full-foot cushioning for warmth and protection.
- Durable nylon exterior for extended wear.
- Mid-calf height works well with hunting boots.
Knitting socks in Niota, TN since 1902, Crescent Sock Co. endured the ups and downs that shaped the character of America’s people and her textiles industry. Today the company produces socks under its own FITS™ name in the oldest operating hosiery mill in the U.S. – leveraging technical expertise and long-held knowledge of fit and comfort. The family-owned company remains committed to its vision, its people, and to keeping jobs in the Tennessee Valley. Crescent manufactured socks for more than 30 other brands before deciding to market its own high-quality product. Responding to an industry-wide epidemic of ill-fitting socks, FITS leveraged over a century of experience to develop the world’s best-fitting sock using materials, processes, and quality controls that far exceed industry standards. The result: a product line that embodies the crucial connection between fit and performance.
