WTB: Western Mountaineering Flash booties - Size L black or cranberry on 08/08/2011 20:05:57 MDT Print View

Looking to buy a pair of Large WM Flash booties in black or cranberry. I keep checking dealers and no one seems to have any.

Anyone have a pair gathering dust?

Thanks,

There are some cottage alternatives if you can't find the WM ones online. This one comes to mind, but I think there are others:

Definitely buy the flame thrower socks!! on 08/08/2011 22:17:28 MDT Print View

Purchased these with extra down and it was worth it. Don't go up in size if you don't need to, they are accurate in size. Very warm and not as pricey as other quality down booties. They have many color options, too.

I have the Feathered Friends. They have more fill and a superb shell booty.

Goosefeet is another cottage option.

Thanks for the comments. Those with the inner sock / outer bootie combination - do you get moisture build up or anything inside the outer bootie?

Or is it manageable just to turn them inside out for a quick dry out?

Thanks

PS: Are the Feathered Friends true to size? I will be in Seattle next month and could find the store (I think) if necessary. I wear a normal width size 10 so I was thinking a large should fit fine.

How long does arrowhead usually take to ship the Flamethrower socks? I have a week long trip the first week of September and would like to have them before then.

I have WM Flash Booties, sz. Lg. on 08/18/2011 15:52:35 MDT Print View

Hey Carl,

If you are interested I have a pair of Western Mountaineering Flash Booties, cranberry in sz. large. I have never used them. I bought them last March specifically for a spring skiing backcountry trip. We ended up skiing into a yurt instead of camping out, so I never even put them on my feet.

I'll shoot them to you for $40 and I'll pay shipping. Let me know if you have any questions or need pics.

Hi Tal,
If Carl has already found a pair, or bought something else, I will take them.

What I get for not checking my mail for 3 days on 08/21/2011 18:07:53 MDT Print View

Ok, so I missed out on this because I did not check for 3 days.

Still looking. Thanks.
