While camp booties are primarily meant to keep feet warm in a tent or hammock, the reinforced sole will hold up to quick walks around the campsite. Sized to accommodate feet of nearly all sizes. Toasty warm, with drawstrings that keep drafts out.
Sizing tends to run large, and improperly fit booties can impede comfort and warmth.
These air-activated warmers keep feet warm for hours. The sticky side attaches to the insoles of shoes or hiking boots, so the warmer stays in place. They work well inside of ski boots, too, and are thin enough to keep from bothering hikers.
Warmers are be too small for some users, and they don’t always put out enough heat.
These knee-high socks provide up to 6 hours of consistent heat. Top of sock, and its battery compartment pocket, reach higher than the top of most ski and mountain boots. Three heat settings help manage power output and comfort. Socks are thick and comfortable.
Warming coils only reach the tops of the feet, leaving toes cold.
Sized accurately for a range of foot sizes, these camp booties fit very comfortably. They stay toasty even in below-freezing temperatures. Ultralight and highly compressible, so they crush down small or roll up easily inside a sleeping bag.
No soles, so they can only be used inside the tent and sleeping bag.
Provide an extra layer of insulation around the toes and the ball of the foot, keeping them warm and comfortable. The neoprene fabric is thin enough to be unobtrusive.
The fabric doesn’t wick away moisture, so toes eventually get cold as the user’s socks get damp.

Almost every camper has suffered the discomfort of chilly feet, even during the warmer months of the year. Wet footwear, poorly insulated sleeping bags, and reduced circulation are common causes of cold feet. To stay comfortable in icy weather and to stay toasty warm inside the tent, hikers and campers can use an array of products designed to keep the feet warm. Air-activated warmers, which use chemicals that heat up when unwrapped, are a popular option due to their compact size, but some worry about their environmental impact and cost over time (most are disposable after one use). Other options include socks with electric heating elements, which are helpful in freezing conditions, and soft camp booties filled with down or synthetic filling that keep feet warm – as long as the booties stay dry.
