I tried the toe warmers yesterday during a 1 hour after work ride... They worked as advertised. They kept my toes warm for about 45 minutes. The last 15 minutes, my toes didn't get frozen but it wasn't comfortably warm either. I placed them on top of my toes (between wool socks and top of my shoe) since putting them beneath my toes changed my foot positioning relative to the cleat enough to make me feel it in my ankle and knees (yes, I'm very particular about positioning). My fingers did freeze after 45 minutes however. I'm going for a longer ride this afternoon with both hand and toe warmers to see how they fare... Overall, for the price, it's an awesome product if it can keep me riding longer than 1 hour in the winter...

To extend your riding pleasure - and if you find your heated up for more than four hours be sure and seek medical attention.

of toe warmers you bought. They should at least last 4 hours unless they get wet, which does kill them. Maybe your feet sweat like crazy...

I just picked up a box of them last night for the winter season to go with my new 06 lake boots with the funky lacing system.

Try them again and see how they work or maybe you could try cabellas heated socks they might do the job. Or even cooler is hottronics footbed warmers: http://www.hotronic.com/products/footwarmers/index.htm

And were your other Lakes worn out?
Man, Smily, you have the biggest bank of disposable income I have ever seen!
