    Get some Booties!

    Or should I say "booties". An English major, I was not.

    I keep reading about folks using 3/4 UQ and adding Down booties to keep their feet warm. I think I'm more of a full length UQ guy, myself... but this looks like a good deal for those that are into booties.

    For 3 days (ending at noon Eastern on Thursday, Dec 9) on The Clymb: Sierra Designs Men's Pull-On Down Bootie http://t.co/R10XZZD
    About half price at $30

    They also have ~1/2 off on down mocs, if you like less ankle coverage, some jackets, sleeping bags, and tents... you know, if you have a ground dweller friend on your xmas list.

    Sure. Happy to help.
    I just wish I could decide between the boots and the booties.
    I've read that some folks like to wear the booties around camp, and not IN the hammock like I was thinking. I'd prefer to have the boots for that, but they won't be NEARLY as packable as the the booties.
    Decisions, decisions.

    I went with the mocs, simply because of available sizes. I liked the looks of the men's pull on booties over the womens, and I have wider feet, so mens sizes often work better for me. Unfortunately, all of the mens size small pull on booties were gone. And the womens size large mocs were also gone, so I got the mens size small mocs. Looking forward to warm footies in the hammock & at home.

    Awesome that you got some before they totally sold out!
    I can't find my size in the mocs already

    Those look toasty. Love to have a pair. 12oz seems a bit heavy though. That's like a whole 3/4 summer under quilt almost.

    I noticed by the afternoon, all sizes in the women's mocs were gone. I'm glad I grabbed some early. Looks like down booties are popular. Thanks again to you & LR for the heads up. This is my first experience with The Clymb. What's delivery time like?
