I started backpacking while working for the National Park service ten years ago. I have been a backcountry ranger/law enforcement ranger and served on search and rescue crews. I typically take two or more camping trips a month, year round. I appreciate light weight, but am not obsessed by it. I often carry a 30 lb (14 kg) pack and stay out from three to nine days at a time. I also enjoy day trips with only water on my back. I take trips to Colorado and Montana in the summertime and enjoy the outdoors there as well.
These socks sound great! Whether I am sitting around the house or resting by the campfire, I am constantly getting cold feet when the temperature gets low. I will be taking these socks on a trip to Colorado this winter as well as on my backpacking trips in the mountain ranges around Tucson and northern Arizona. I will be in high elevation where the weather will be cold. I can't wait to see how well these socks work. I hate sitting around camp with freezing feet and I hope that the Heat Holders can take care of this bothersome problem for me.
I have 2 current test: Suisse Sport Mckinley Sleeping Bag ( LTR stage), View Ranger App (2 report test LTR stage), Honey Stingers (awaiting delivery)
