Price Paid: $95
When they first arrived I was very impressed at how light and compressible they are. I quickly took the booties out of their stuff sack to try them on. Wow! They are so soft and comfortable.
Next, I removed the outer shell from their included stuff sack. The sewing and attention to detail is top notch. The foam insoles that are included with the outer shell is just enough cushion to allow them to be used around camp. If one chose, they could simply remove their insoles form their hiking foot wear and slip them in the outer shells to increase stiffness.
At first glance they seem a little pricey. But, when compared to similar products on the market, ie. Western Mountaineering down booties or their closest comparable booties, the Feathered Friends down booties. They fall right in line price wise and more importantly, quality wise.
The fact they are modular makes them a great piece of light weight gear to add to any one's backpack. Use the bootie and the outer shell together to create a really light weight, warm winter camp shoe. Simply remove the bootie from the outer shell and use them for additional warmth in your sleeping bag.
If you'er looking for a great winter footwear system or simply a lightweight way to add warmth to your sleeping system, the great products that Goosefeet produces will fit just the bill.
These Down Socks are made from lightweight 0.9 ounce per square yard Taffeta and 800+ fill premium goose down. They come in black only.
Extra down fill is recommended but not required in the L and XL.
