    Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet. But, I use my empty backpack as a foot pad by placing it underneath my feet on a cold night. It works great.

    Boo hoo all you hot foot people. I do not sympathize.

    I have cold feet too. Poor circulation I guess. Down booties are the best and you can make your own. I also find it helps to put on dry socks before bed. In fact I sometimes will tuck my socks in my shirt to warm them up.

    whats funny is i didnt realize that socks would actually make my feet cold. ive always just kept the socks i had on on in the hammock. maybe ill try a night without (and bring a spare set of socks.)

    anyway, my caveat is that i probably wont be hanging in the cold that much so buying down booties seem a bit, excessive....
