    Default Thermal insoles/socks

    Looking for suggestions concerning heated insoles and socks. Many reviews do not recommend Thermacell products.

    My feet always get cold below -10. I do have a pair of the thermacell heated insoles that do help in my muck boots. But I got them on clearance for $50. For the $150 that they sell for now I would look into something else.

    I have heated socks and they work great. But c. cell batteries aren’t cheap. I only use them when below -10
    From -10 to zero I use a hand warmer on top of my toes
    Alway pull my snow pant down to cover boots make a big difference

    Got some nice thick merino wool socks and haven't had cold feet yet...normally my feet get cold within an hour or so, was in the boat the other day and my feet were almost sweating meanwhile cousin was ready to turn in from cold feet.

    I get by with cheap snow boots, toe warmers and the most important thing for ice fishing. A foam board (looks like a cutting board, or garden kneeling pad) from the dollar store that I rest my feet on when on the ice. Same as deer sit in metal stand or blind. The barrier helps ward of contact cold transmission.

    Yup..wool socks and a set of $0.99 'Toe Warmers' and I'm good for the long hunt. Add to that a pair of roomy boots, like a Mukluk and you can stand quite a bit of cold.

    Try spraying your feet with antiperspirant.
    Helps keep from sweating which can make cold feet quicker.

    I bought a pair of Arctic boot Insulators about 4 years ago, the worse condition I sat was 3 winters ago, went in at -26 sat from 6 am to 430 pm and the last hour or so my feet began to get cold, I wear Irish boots 2000 gram,
    I love these things and once she starts to get cold they are always in my back pack, when I get to stand or blind I put them on

    Merino wool socks, Bama socks and buy your boots a half size too big so the bama socks will fit in them. When you take the boots off at the end of the day, you're feet will be warm and dry, the bama socks will be wet or damp from the sweat they have wicked.

    A lot of lads working in the camps in northern Alberta use the bama socks in steel toed rubber boots, and it's a lot colder there. A rough neck in my hunt that works out there got me into this system this fall. Impressed with the results so far.

    I've seen those at Marks but never thought to wear them as a boot liner, thought they were like a house slipper...good idea Thanks !
