It was another cold winter day in Minnesota, but last night a new piece of gear arrived to keep my toes warm and toasty – Gerbing Heated Socks!
To celebrate the awesome warmth, I went on a pleasure ride this morning making many detours along the way. The most fun was playing on a nearby frozen lake. With the weeks of cold temps, the ice is several feet thick and very smooth. The inch or two of powdery snow on top made it extra fun.
The heated socks are thin like a dress sock, and surprisingly warm. At less than full power, my feat were very warm and toasty even after 20 minutes at freeway speeds. Why didn’t I buy these sooner?? Yea, I won’t use them every day; they aren’t needed. On the subzero days though, they are pure luxury.
For those keeping track, I use a Gerbing heated coat and hotgrips heated grips. I also have gerbing gloves and a tourmaster heated vest, but rarely use them. They the backup set.
