Electric foot warmers

Recommended Posts

I found a new product on line at Tromblys Tackle, electric foot warmer, runs of AA battery packs. So far I have not seen any reviews or comments. Has anyone else tried them or have any first hand(foot) knowledge, thanks. http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=421987&pdesc=Edge_Expedite_Toe_Sters_Elite_Foot_Warmer

I haven't tried any of these battery powered boots but I think Mark's workwarehouse has a version of powered boot heaters as well. Might be worth a look. :dunno:

Nothing new about the product. From the 50's to the present they were called electric heated hunt socks. They do not compensate for poor quality boots and are only as useful as the battery pack. The older models ran on 9V

If yer just sitting and not walking so much,those shake foot warmers are good enough.Cheap too.

Ya, I tried a pair once, they didn't have the sticky tape, one ended up on top of my foot the other was choking and tried to crawl outa my boot. :whistling:

The boots from Mark"s are $300.00 they have a built in rechargeable battery pack supposedly good for 1000 full charges.There are 3 settings high (65)med(55) and low (45).

i myself would not buy anything to do with heating your feet all it does is cause moisture in the boot makeing your foot freeze later,good pair of 2000 gram thinsulate boots will take care of cold feet.

just my 7 cents lol

Oh, no mistake, I understand the quality boot part, I have a pair of Sorels with a spare brand new pair of liners, It's just some days it feels like the internal furnace isn't putting out the BTU's to the tootsies.

I'm a proponent of quality socks and boots as opposed to heated boots. A warm hat will also feed a degree or two more to your feet. (NO, the hat on your head, not on your feet!)

ST, maudit, I figgered I'd have to buy a size 44 toque to do that, :clapping:
