I'm still learning what works well for me, but I tend to take my VB socks off when I get to camp to allow my feet to "breath" during dinner and before getting into the VB in my sleeping bag. The cold feet come into effect after I put my feet back into my usually wet boots and sit around camp (ie. I stop moving). Therefore, I was thinking I would get some down booties for when I want my feet to breath and dry out. What is your opinion (or anyone with experience) with using VB's the entire time you are out. Is this the norm?
40 below makes some nice stuff. I'm still deciding if I want to go a different footwear root and pick up the light energy overboots.
I saw the 40 below camp booties just yesterday, but figured if I was going to go with something that is 10 oz, I would like them to go higher up the ankle. A benefit is that they are synthetic. MEC (literally across the street from me) has something similar, synthetic aswell although without all the strapping, and at about 1/2 the price and weight.
However, please let me know how they work out as I am very interested.
I'm only drawn to the FF booties because they seem very versatile...mid calf height, removable liner, WB shell - they just seem to offer so much more then the other options...plus they are in stock and ready to ship!
