Just thought i would share these with you as my Wife (who always suffers from cold feet even in the mildest of weather) thinks they are great.
They are called heat holders socks and i bought them before our last trip, http://www.snowandicegrips.co.uk/heat-holders-socks-31-c.asp my wife now swears by them. They recon to be 7 x warmer than cotton socks so for anyone who has still got a trip planned might be worth looking at?

Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Everything has been said before, but since nobody ever listens we have to keep going back and saying it all over again and again and again

We all have those, they are warm but in my experience they lose their leg length pretty quickly

I agree, after spending a long weekend camping at easter this year in very wintery conditions, these socks were amazing!

they have them at sports direct and a bit cheaper. Love mine but they are fat so you need a bit of room in your boots

Muckerette has been into these a good while now..... literally!!
I succumbed last week whilst camping, and must say, they are good, but be warned, you won't be able to just slip in and out of your half wellies, cos they am thick!!
I have to now sit down and tug them on and off (the wellies, not the socks!!). A man's life is never easy!!

Latest word on the street around here, is that Primark have now started doing them, apparently at 3.99, but don't shoot..... I am but a messenger!

I got them in Primark where they are branded "Feet heaters" and are 2.50 for kids (go up to adult sizes though, I just bought the kids ones as I'm a size 4) and 4 for the adult sizes I think. They are amazing! The kids and I had them on for our -4 camping trip recently and not a cold tootsie in sight. Hubby, who had poo pooed them was both green with envy and blue with the cold

You cannot beat the genuine British Army Arctic sock,and despite it's name ,works in the Antarctic too! Very long in the leg,and last for years,Mr.Brydon would approve.
