Reading all the info on socks, heated insoles, etc.

I did a little searching on electric socks - there are a BUNCH of them.

Has anyone tried the electric socks? Any input on what works and what doesn't?

As others, my toes freeze (I am going to try the unscented Anti-perspirant idea) so any info is appreciated. Thanks.

Tried some in the 70's, inside some cheap rubber barn boots. (that's all I had). They didn't do much. I'm sure they have improved and would work well in better boots.

I have stuck them to my bow grip to keep my hand warm.

Heatmax (Hothands) used to make what they called Foot Warmers. About 2"X3" non-adhesive, unlike their current adhesive toe warmers. They were great...had twice the chemical, got much warmer than their toe warmers and would last all day. I imagine their transition to the toe warmers was money driven.

I just got Ororo's this Fall. I've only used them one time. Temp was about 30 degrees. Had them on MEDIUM setting, and my toes were HOT. Had them inside Muck Boots. So far, so good, but it's only been one weekend.
