Don’t let the “light” in the name fool you; this sock is no lightweight when it comes to comfort, durability and all the heavy-duty work you can throw at it. Our Light Tactical Boot is the perfect lightweight field sock. The 100% Merino Wool interior provides excellent moisture control and comfort while the Nylon exterior provides maximum durability and abrasion resistance.
All our socks are made with 18.5m superfine knit, suit-grade performance Merino wool.
Our custom blend of man-made fibers selected for the best breathability and fit.
I first took these socks out of the packaging today, and I thought, "Damn, these things are really thick, my feet are gonna' roast in them! But when I put them on my feet, I noticed how breathable they are. Thick AND breathable socks??? It's sourcery I tell you! If my feet are uncomfortable, the rest of my body follows suit. I've been looking for long socks to wear with my motorcycle boots that were; 1) comfortable (no seam pressure), 2) didn't make my feet sweat, and 3) would last at least a year. Today I rode a half hour to my chiropractor and a half hour back home in 97 degree humidity. The "Fits - Light Tactical Socks" were definitely satisfying the first two requirements! I'll get back to you in 364 days for the third requirement. :O) A plug for the boots is in order because socks are only half the battle in feet comfort. Altaigear.com Tactical Boots are freakin' awesome as well. I think I've found a heavenly pair of partners for my feet! I've had the boots for half a year and put 9,500 miles of riding through rain, snow, heat, and mud on them. Neither Fits nor Altaigear give me jack squat for a review. I just think reviews are a good place to get first hand knowledge of whether something works or not and I feel writing something besides "they're good" is helpful to prospective buyers. I give these socks a huge thumbs up. Ken J Kansas City, MO
I have tried every tactical boot sock out there and after 10 years and 100s of miles rucked, I can honestly say this is the best product on the market. I have used them for every major ruck where what I did when I finished the movement mattered and they have never let me down. The sock securely fits to your foot so there is no friction between your foot and the sock, the sock takes all the friction between the sock and the boot.
I have 6 different types of Fits socks. I threw away all of my other socks and replaced everyone with these! The light tactical are perfect for the warm season!
I can't rate these socks as they were purchased as a gift for my nephew who recently graduated from Marine boot camp at Parris Island,SC. However I personally have several other pairs of FITS socks and love them.
I first received these socks from my employer as part of a uniform. I am now buying them for my personal needs out of pocket. 2 things influence my decision. These socks have lasted me a surprisingly long time and have not degraded. The materials work well for me. No odor retention. They look great and feel comfortable. I'm highly impressed and I am a lifeling customer.
Great length, fit well, correct color, and just the right thickness. Great sock!
These are great socks but they were thicker than I anticipated and ended up being a little too heavy and warm than I expected. Very comfortable and perfect for a cold day.
Great sock for our military men. Thanks
Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.
Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.
Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)
Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you.
To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart.
The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you.
Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:
Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot.
Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
