Firstgear Heated Socks
Does the job!
I wear a regular cowboy boot and the socks fit well over another pair of thin socks. I was actually surprised how well these kept me warm riding at 10F. The formed heel design is very good and puts this ahead of other gear. The wire is well placed and allows for regular walking without any interference. I combine these with nylon soccer socks, this combination isn't too thick and keeps me plenty warm. Overall, your feet won't sweat from too much heat, but they won't be cold either. I use these with the venture heated pants, so I don't know if the pants temp controller changes the temp of these socks or provides full on all the time.

Rode 6 hours highway in 25 degree real feel and below and they worked like a charm. They could be a little taller for easier access to the cords with motorcycle boots, but that's a minor detail. Wear size 10, bought size L, good fit with another sock underneath and comfortable. Couldn't fit a heavier weight sock underneath, but there's no need Perfect addition for cold weather gear. Revzilla great as always with price, shipping and covering the PA tax. Thanks.

Excellent product, extremely satisfied.
I purchased this product as a gift, based on the size given on the sizing chart. The receiver loved them, said they were a perfect fit, and most of all very comfortable. Personally I was most pleased with how fast the delivery was. I have made multiple purchases through this company, and will definitely continue to do business with them in the future.

No more cold feet
I used these with the whole set up, gloves, jacket liner, pant liner and the dual controller. Wore them over thin socks so they wouldn't get beat up. They work great. Highly recommend. Riding cold sucks.

No more cold feet
These have definitely helped to extend my riding season. My feet are not cold, but also not too hot either when using these through pants liners with a controller. I think I'm going to be ordering another pair! I have been using them over a thin sock do that they stay clean longer and it seems to work well.

good product for cold toes
The socks works as described. They keep my feet warm on cold days. I do not have heated pants so I have to run wires down my pants to attache the socks. Not a big deal and I do not notice the wire while riding. For me, the socks work off my jacket controller (the other control adjusts my heated gloves). So it is not optimal for toes vs. body setting the temperature. However, it does work and helps keep my toes from freezing.
The only negative issue in the bulk of the socks. Wearing these over my normal thin socks still adds so much bulk inside my boot that it is on the verge of uncomfortably tight in my boot. I do not want to buy a bigger boot just for winter riding, but depending on how much cold weather riding I do, it may be necessary.

These socks work great, well a little to good. Get a second thermostat for these and the gloves if you need to turn the temp to full blast heat your hands and feet are going to burn. I tried two pairs of socks under these and still burning my toes.

Good over cotton socks
I'm 5.10, 165lbs, wear 32x32 jeans and 41" chest. I bought the jacket, pants, gloves and socks with a duel semi mount heat troller. Jacket is a size Med and I wear it over a tea shirt and under my riding jacket. Fits perfect and is light weight. Not bulky at all as the picture suggests. Pants are a size Med/Lrg. I wear them under my jeans and riding pants. The pants are not bulky either. The socks are a size Lrg. I'm a size 10 boot, and I wear them over regular cotton socks. For the best performance, you want to keep the jacket and pants close to your skin. I have tried wearing the pants over the jeans, but under my riding pants with decreased heat performance. The gloves are a size large and fit well. They seem to be water proof thus far. The jacket, pants and socks heat very well at temps down to 15deg when worn under normal riding gear. The gloves are good down to about 25deg, then fingers start to get numb. The gloves don't seem to be as good at heating as the rest of the gear, but they are quality made. I have tried every hookup combination. But hooking the jacket, pants and socks on one side of the troller, and then hooking the gloves to the other side works the best in my opinion. You can turn the gloves all the way up, and the other components heat so similar that they work well together on about a med, to med high setting. The heat troller is quality and well maid. It has flashing LEDs that are red and yellow, and flash at different rates depending on the setting. Slow flash/low, fast flash/high. All and all I am very satisfied. Quality gear and great service.
