This stuff sounds way awesome! Cavers could really make use of this, I'll bet! :grin:

Us motorcyclists have known about this for years though it does sound like this will be an improvement.

They even make them for divers these days though I've always been warm enough in a wetsuit so haven't needed to consider them.
Or just pack a couple of these

I remember really wanting battery powered electric socks back in the '70s. I think these are a little better! :woohoo:
