Overall these booties perform as expected, but I am very curious about the insulation. They are advertised as down booties, and there is some down in these things (judging by the feathers that come through the nylon) but I think it is negligible; it appears the bulk of the insulation is synthetic. They do not have the characteristics of a down product.

Maybe one of our retailers/gear testers will be willing to cut them open to find out? I think I will go with Feathered Friends for my next pair. When I do I will cut mine open and let you know.
