    socks and gloves :D soon as they git here I have poor circulations in both hands and feet WAHHHHH :rolleyes: , I bought a pair of each off ebay called Nordic Gear Lectra;

    "The Lectra Gloves by Nordic Gear were originally developed at the request of an offshore oil platform crew whose extreme working environment caused prolonged exposure to the harsh bite of winter. An electrical engineer, a fabric specialist, and an extreme weather authority combined their expertise to develop an extraordinarily warm glove that also has the added benefits of the LECTRA battery heated system."


    Battery powered "Lectra Socks" Foot warmers. Great for winter sports, spectator sports, skiing, hikers, hunters, and fishermen. Uses "D" cell Alkaline or rechargeable batteries. New "D" cell will last 5-6 hours, and rechargeable batteries will last 2-3 hours. The heating element is safely buried in a channel located in the toe area. Invisible to the wearer, the heating element is designed to warm the toe cavity, thus keeping the toes and feet warm.The wire down the leg does not heat. The Lectra Sox are extremely safe. Low amperage eliminates all possibility of shock or burn, even when wet.

    I haven't gotten to actually field test them i just plugged in the batteries and wore them around the house for awhile, its a very subtle heat nothing intense the socks heat is right at the toe tip YEAH :) and the gloves felt warm all the way thru the heat radiates thru the palm I post back and let you know once i get in some really cold weather how they fare>all in all so far i give them a #10

    So far so good huh Vini, keep us posted.

    I'd be interested in how well the gloves work, I lost the very tip of My middle finger in a work accident and sometimes when it gets cold that sucker hurts. Those gloves might just be the thing to keep stashed in the boat.

    BRAD,
    The gloves are good even without the heating device there insulated with an inner glove and there snug and warm even without the heat, they must hold in the natural heat pretty well. I have arthritis in the thumb and one finger and the cold makes that stuff just scream out at me i have the same arthritis in my left foots big toe and thats the one that really gets to hurting when cold .

    Definetly update soon as i get the chance to be cold again out there;)

    UPDATE



    I got to try the socks out the other night and heres the results.


    Temps were'nt really really cold, no where near freezing but cold enough for me to get uncomfortable and cranky:p


    My feet were the coldest part of my body before i stuck them down in those socks, after about an 15 minutes of having them in the socks they were pretty cozy.

    Now this is'nt really a hot type heat its just a warming but i'll tell you this when i got home and took off the socks my feat had been sweating which is unheard of .:)
