Keeping your feet warm?
SO I just got back from a hang and got to test out my new UGQ Quilts, and I LOVE them, but i still had an issue with keeping my tootsies warm. the quilt was fully snapped and such, but my feet were freezing. ended up putting hot hands in my socks to keep warm
any help? socks never really seem to do anything for me.
loose socks? You don't want to cut off blood flow.
what about down booties?
I remember seeing the Shug master flash talk about how he puts his jrb down sleeves over his feet on one of his videos...
I suffer from cold feet also...really ruins your night dosnt it.
I found using a fresh pair of polyester (dress) socks, then a plastic bag (vapor barrier), then a loose pair of thick wool work socks kept my feet warm.
For really cold weather (-20*C and below) I made a tube out of reflectix that surounds my feet and legs up to the knees. Toasty and works very well when sitting on the snow around a fire.
I second titanium hiker's idea about looser socks, either get some thick quality wool socks, adding a liner sock also helps, you could try neoprene socks, really warm but it will trap your sweat inside or I do admit that I love my down booties ;)
hope this helps
+2 on the down booties. I get cold feet also, but not since I started to wear down booties. I just saw a pair in the for sale thread. Not sure there your size.
Good luck Rev.
Down booties are da bomb. Always keep my feet warm and toasty
