[Amazon Canada] DryGuy Bootglove (for ski boots) $25-$32 all sizes

For those who ski and have cold feet especially while riding the lifts, but do not want to spend big $ on those fancy battery boot heaters, these DryGuy Bootgloves are on sale.

I have a pair that I used for the last 2 years and they keep my toes warm enough especially sitting on those long ski lift rides.

Check the size carefully before you buy. Medium fits for my wife's 23.5 boot and my 25.5 boot quite well.

Use this link if you need the small size
https://www.amazon.ca/DRYGUY-02173-Boot ... th=1&psc=1

and this link for the medium/large
https://www.amazon.ca/DryGuy-02144-Boot ... glove&th=1

If you try to buy them at the ski resorts, they usually sell for $40+.

These do not last very long but they provide about - 10 C of difference.

The toe strap wears away quite fast. You can make it last longer if you put duct tape or something on it before you start using it.

I noticed that too on some of the reviews. Luckily mine hasn't worn out at all, but I haven't used mine too often yet over the last 2 years. But if I know that I need to walk thru a parking lot or other long distances on a hard rough ground, then I'll take these off and stuff em in my pocket.

When I skied at Sun Peaks last month, the 3 different ski instructors that I had all wore these. One of the female instructors had badly frost bitten toes, and she was only using these.

It seems to me that the cold I feel in my ski boots comes from the bottom through the sole and not so much from the top, so I don't see how this will help much.

Try changing your insoles, it might help

I had the redhots in my older ski boots and the bottoms were usually warm. But with my new boots being such low volume and tight fitting, I changed to the thinner superfeet carbons and they are noticeably colder (and less cushion too). I might have to switch back to the redhots

Also don't overtighten your ski boots to allow circulation to your feet, and don't wear overly thick socks.

i've had these for years and find they don't do much at all.
You're not skiing fast enough. :)

To be honest, I don't feel a big difference when I'm skiing or standing still. It's usually on the ski lift, especially with high winds and it's -10C or below, is when I really notice the toes starting to go numb (my wife and son also complain at the same time). That's where I really feel they help.

Key point. Thicker socks does not mean warmer. Even better, buy a proper pair of ski socks for those that are still hesitant to spend that $30+ on a pair. It makes a world of difference. Also, it's advisable to just spend a bit more money on good boots in the first place.
