Amazon User Review: “We bought these when we planned a trip to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. *Incredibly* useful and effective when you're standing outside at 1 AM and it is 10-below. They heated up well (but not _too_ hot) and stayed warm for more than the 3-4 hours we were typically watching the sky.”

If your feet get wet, or, in some cases, get sweaty, while you’re out trekking on your winter vacation, having moisture-wicking socks is key. These moisture wicking socks will do the trick. They will keep you warm and comfortable in any frigid situation. Available in 10 color combos, in packs of 4 pairs.
Amazon User Review: “These socks are the BOMB! Very high quality and cozy! For the cost of ONE pair of Smart Wool socks, you get FOUR pair of excellent Merino Wool socks that are cute to boot! These are slightly heavy though, so be aware that they aren't super thin or light. I'd say they're about a medium weight -- perfect for boots. This is a great deal - I highly recommend taking advantage of it!.”

Have you ever wished you could wear your slippers while you were out and about? Look no further! These sheepskin insoles from ABUSA are not only super warm, but moisture wicking, and ultra comfortable. You won’t want to take your shoes off when these are in them! Available in 2 colors.
Amazon User Review: “Love these inserts. I needed more support, as I was going on vacation and knew I’d be walking a lot. It was much colder than expected so for 6 days straight, I walked in my boots with these inserts. Anywhere from 5-10 miles a day and they worked perfectly. Without them, they were flat, no support. Not to mention the added warmth.”
