I wish I would have bought these sooner! I was initially concerned with the sizing but after reading a couple of the reviews about sizing I made the right choice. These things work great! They arrived when I was told they would. I honestly can't find anything bad to say about these liners!
This is the answer!

I ski at Alta Ski Resort in Utah. My toes will freeze when it is below 15 degrees. I use a home made waterproof plastic box to hold my ham radio batteries of 7.5 volts. I use the battery harness and the coax Y harness. Toes stay warm, not hot. The socks are thin, but durable. This is fine as the rest of my feet never feel the cold...just the toes. Worth every penny!!
Knocks The Sting Out Of Cold Toes

I like these socks because it puts the heat right where I want it. When my toes start to burn and ace that's it for me, color me done. These do the trick. I have ridden in the mid twenties and felt toasty warm.

Feet would be absolutely freezing at the end of ride to work. Not now, heated socks took care of problem.
A good pair of sockes

I think these are a good buy. I plug them in by themselves. I use one control for them and the other one for jacket and gloves. I ride all year round. Thank you First Gear.
Good worm feet

You do need a heat controller with these socks, the first time I tried them without one I had to unplug them they got to hot. I got them on the small size because I thought they would work better when tight, but have found I wear them over my socks and would get the larger size next time. Once I got the heat dialed in my feet are perfect on my 45 minute commute in 'California" cold. (upper 30s, lower 40s in the morning)
Left blisters on my feet

I wore these over my socks and they were kind of uncomfortable. I ended up getting blisters on my right foot? They also get really hot in comparison to the rest of my heated gear? I would only wear these when it's below freezing and going to be cruising for hours on the interstate but around town? No that would be overkill.

My feet get cold and stay cold when the weather turns nasty. It seems each year this gets to be more of an issue for me. These heated units are great. They put the warmth on top of the foot, and that is the area that gets hit with all the weather. I wear a heated vest of a different brand and was easily able to adapt the connections on the cords.

These units work great. My feet, as they get older, get cold easy and stay cold the older that we get. These socks put the warmth on top of the foot and really help my issue of cold feet, I wear a thin sock under the heated ones, the sizing was right on for me. Thanks...
Warm, but you have to keep the wind out!

I bought a size Large for my 11.5/12 size feet. As mentioned in other postings, the heat is only on top of the socks. The fit is good. I wore these on an hour+ interstate ride in the mid-30s with lace up riding boots and OVER socks. My feet were slightly chilly mostly due to wind but I’m sure if I wore them under my socks it would have been much better. Since they can’t be washed, I think next time I’ll either purchase shoe gators to keep the wind out, or wear socks… Heated socks then another sock to hold the heat in better (not a big deal for me since I have boots with a lot of space in the toe). I use these with the heated pants, 65W jacket, and gloves.
