/ thinsulate socks ..do they exist
got bad circulation in my foot after a bout of frost bite and thinking of loads of options on how to keep my toes warm.
looking at maybe some thinsulate socks or boot liners or even thinsulate lined boots..i believe divers use socks to keep digits warm in freezing water,could they be adapted for mountaineering maybe?
anybody got any experience with thinsulate or similar? thanks colin
They make socks with Primaloft insulation inside, but they are quite pricey.
I vaguely recall seeing heated insoles advertised somewhere but I could well be misremembering. Worth a google perhaps?
sealskinz do socks, I've never tried them but their gloves are brilliant! Really warm and fully waterproof too.
