The winter is fast approaching, which is great if you love to ski and spend time outdoors in the snow. While your mind might love the idea of being out in the cold, brisk, refreshing winter air…your feet…not so much.
In our quest to keep our toes warm, we just tried out a new solution, the ThermaCELL ProFLEX Heated Insoles. Please watch our video review of the ThermaCELL ProFLEX –
The Ultimate Test, A Freezing Cold Soccer Game
Here is a situation any parent can connect with. Your son, daughter or in my case nephew, makes it to the High School soccer finals for the state. This is awesome news and everyone is excited…until you hear the weather forecast is 19 degrees for the game. Yes, you get to sit on those cold metal bleachers hoping the game ends before you get frostbite.
I tried out the ThermaCELL ProFLEX in just this situation and I was impressed. My feet stayed comfortable throughout the whole freezing cold game. You notice I said comfortable and not warm. The ThermaCELL aims to keep your feet between 100 and 110 degrees, so just slightly above body temperature. Rather than heating your feet like disposable heating packs, the ThermaCELL just tries to keep your feet at normal temperatures. This is actually much better than heating, because if you heat your feet and start to sweat, then when the heating ends the sweat can freeze. Ouch!
ThermaCELL is Rechargeable and Remote Controlled
Let’s get this out in the open right now…The ThermaCELL ProFLEX retail for around $179. Yes, that is a considerable investment, especially compared to throwing disposable heating pods in your boots. The thing is, you really get some sophisticated and well built technology for that $179. Here are the key features on the ThermaCELL ProFLEX Heated Insoles –
- Remote controlled – fingertip control of heat without removing your footwear
- 3 heat settings: medium heat (100˚ F), high heat
(111˚ F), and no heat
- Rechargeable, removable batteries (2 included)
- Battery charges in 4 hours using wall charger or any USB port
- Charge lasts up to 5 hours
- Batteries are easy to change without removing insole from boot or shoe
The Right Audience for the ThermaCELL ProFLEX Heated Insoles
Given the price of the ThermaCELL ProFLEX it is not for someone who spends limited time outside in the winter. These heated insoles are great for anyone who loves to ski or just spends considerable time outside in the winter months. For sure, Skiers and Snowboarders will be huge fans of the ThermaCELL ProFLEX. The fact that you can recharge and use them over and over again, make them a great gift for anyone who loves to spend their winter outside.
