These are great, just a few minutes of wearing them and my feet get warm again. I sprayed Scotch guard on them and I use them outside a little bit. We snowshoed into a yurt over Christmas and I wore them inside but I also used them on the packed snow to run out to the bathroom or get firewood. I was so comfy in them the other day that I wore them outside while I did a little shooting, I was on packed snow again but my feet didn't get wet at all, probably outside for 2 hours.
The sole isn't particularly substantial which I like since I almost always tuck one of my feet under me. On the other hand, I'm a tenderfoot wimp and there's enough cushion there that I've been comfy outdoors. I like the high ankle for the added warmth. Thought these would be a camping/tree stand slipper but I do wear them around the house when my feet are particularly cold. I can't say enough good things.
I just bought these in December and went on a winter camping/backcountry ski trip with them. They were great and I just kept asking myself why it took so long to buy these things. As soon as I took my ski boots off, I left my sweaty socks on, put the slippers over the sock and then a pair of neos over the slipper. Cooking dinner in the snow was warm and comfy. By the time I got back to the tent and took the neos off, my socks were dry and I just hung out in the slippers. I would have paid double the price if I knew they were this great. Bought my husband a pair and he hates loose fitting stuff on his feet, but he is always cold and now he can't believe how nice these fill.
They seemed nice at first, but in only a week, the inside of one of the slippers ripped, and the insulation was exposed onto my foot. There was no way to get in there and sew it shut.
