Toes got cold Suggestions..?
« on: December 19, 2010, 08:27:31 PM »
I was wearing pack boots last night with one cotton stock and one wool sock. My feet and toes still got cold from sitting. Suggestions? My fingers also get cold.

Try this....
Put on a pair of nylons(knee highs)......from your wife. ;D
Then a pair of good wool socks....then your boots of choice
When on stand use a pair of Artic shield booties
If on stand for a long time, put in some hand warmers up in the toes of the booties

Note~don't lace your boots too tight, that will cut the circulation of blood to your feet. Also when going from set to set, don't set the heater in your vehicle to blow on your feet that will cause them to sweat.
Whatado !!!!

I put on a pair of good wicking socks, than a pair of thick wools socks.  Good insulated boots and it seems to be ok.  The hands is anothr matter.  I think no matter what you do when its cold enough your hands will get cold.

where a good set of poly pro thin socks then a pair of marino wool socks.  make sure the socks are not too tight either.  they will restrict blood flow.  do you have good blood flow to your feet fp51?  that could be the problem

The wicking sock and boot sock are the way to go.  However I think that many of the wicking socks are nylon so that should have worked for Foxpro51??????

I have started to use one of those muffs that attach around your waste when calling.. When hands are not in use like when using an electronic caller I keep my hands in the muff and my gun is held in a shooting rest if it's a rifle.. Shotgun is carried along side me either and supported at the pistol grip with my arm pushed against my side. barrel facing down..If I am mouth calling I might put a glove on my hand that goes under the forearm of the gun and the bare hand is placed in the muff.

My feet HATE the cold.  I look how well made on the bottom of the boot is for insulation. To many boots are not thick on the bottom and ground temp gets in to easy. I wear thin cotton socks and boots lose enough to have a little room. Tight boots are good to walk in but will make your feet cold. Keep your stands shorter, lol

I have been using a booty made by BOSS along with a pair of liners underneat. My feet have not been cold at all when I wear these two in combination... If I ever see this particular BOSS booty somewhere I'm going to make sure I buy another pair.. The pair I have were purchased maybe 20 + years ago and they still work..

for hands i have heard you can wear latex gloves as the middle layer of gloves that ensures your hands stay dry no matter what. not sure about feet try muck boots or milsurp micky mouse boots both are pretty warm
