Timberghost, I hunt mainly from a tree stand. Would these foot covers not become slick/slippery on stand? Also, are they easy to clean out the inside since my boots would be covered in mud and snow and transfered to the inside of foot covers?
Thanks again all.

I use them all the time in a tree stand. The bottoms are textured/grippy for good footing. They zip from bottom to top on the back making it very easy to get on and off. I've never had to worry about snow and mud getting all in there. If anything does get in you could just shake it out. Trust me from one bad weather hunter to another bad weather hunter our boots have probably seen it all and these are the way to go. I'll get the name of mine and get back to you.

I was just on Cabelas web site and found ones called Arctic Shield boot warmers on sale for $39.99. But they had a couple of different brands to choose from. Let me know which ones you have and any other suggestions on plus/minus's about this product. Thanks again Timberghost.

Those are the warmest you can buy. I use them all the time while on stand.

KTL here are some pics for you. I brought em in from the shed and I believe they are the same as the Cabelas brand. I've had these for 5 yrs and I haven't 1 complaint. I could wear normal socks with insulated rubber boots and these and stay warm all day. I wear Rocky Buckstalker Lights 1000 gram boots (size 11 reg width). These boot covers are size Large and fit me perfectly. They have endured the nasty Lake Effect snow machine blizzards and extreme temps.
