    keeping feet warm!!

    went to REI the other day and looked around and found some sandal socks or diver`s booties made by warmers.they are made of 2mm of neoprene with
    1mm fleece.and i`m going back to get some diver`s gloves made out of the same material.the booties were $17 and the gloves $40,these are like under armour cold gear material.so i will be trying these out for hunting this year.

    Neoprene does not breath. Found out the hard way when i was young wearing neoprene fishing gloves. Worked great walking up the mountain, after about an hour of sitting the sweat froze and pretty much had to head to the truck.

    A good leather or canvas boot with a decent amount of thinsulate, along with a good pair of wicking wool socks works well in the Northeast.

    and if it gets real bad get a pair of those boot blankets, unbeatable for those sub-zero days.

    Walk to your stand then change your socks! Put on some nice liners then some wool socks and your feet will be toasty!! I like the Covert Threads Ice socks and some Coolmax liners. My boots have 400 gram Thinsulate and my feet NEVER get cold!!

    Arctic Shield boot insulators. Your feet will thank you. And dry socks.
    Sometimes nothing is a really cool hand.

    biggest mistake people make is keeping them tight on stand.

    walk out, do the sock change and just slip them on, you want them LOOSE!!!

    when it's really cold I put a set of those handwarmers in...you will have nice toasty feets!

    I agree and if you really want your feet toasty slide a pair of felt boot liners inside and throw a couple of hand warmers in, then once on stand or in your blind slip on dry socks and slide your feet into the Arctic Shields. Then put the hand warmers in your pockets to keep your hands warm. When I do this I wear a light pair of boots to walk in with and after putting on the Arctic Shields put my boots in my pack. Hope this helps.
