    Default battery operated sock and gloves

    Does anyone have any experience with battery operated socks and/or gloves? Do they work pretty well to keep fingers and toes warm? Any suggested brands, or anything I need to know?
    Thanks in advance.

    I love my Cabela's battery powered gloves. Made by Gerbing. Four levels of heat. Lithium ion batteries.
    Paid $175 for them.

    I got thermacell heated insoles for my boots. I like how they work and have kept my toes toasty warm while ice fishing.

    I've had the insoles for about 7 years still going strong. I use the basic battery pack with rechargeable AA batteries. If electricity is not available I can always fall back on Duracell or the pink bunny.

    Back in the mid 80's my Mom bought my brother & I battery powered socks for Christmas. The things worked ok. My brother loved his socks & wore them frequently. One morning he wore them & was complaining about having a rock in his boot. He had worn through the insulation on the wires & was receiving a shock each time he stepped. No burns or blisters but I threw mine away with his. The cussing those socks got was truly something to behold. I think I will buy him a new pair this year for Christmas!

    Cabelas has their Heated Performance Gear on sale right now. I just bought a vest so I hope it works as well as the reviews say.
