Extreme Users

From the highest peaks in the world to a Boston high-rise construction site in the dead of winter, ThermaCELL Heated Insoles products are taking a beating and proving an essential tool for extreme users. When people are pushing the limits on what temperatures humans can endure, they count on Heated Insoles and Heat Packs to bring the heat. Don’t believe us? We’ll let our extreme users speak for themselves…

“Whenever my feet started to feel a little uncomfortable, I simply hit the button, turned the insoles on for a few minutes and was good to go. The application of the remote control let me use the insoles for two days without recharging them.”

I just got back from an awesome trip up north. Polar bear watching in the northwestern most community in the whole USA, Kaktovik. I brought along your [ThermaCELL] Heated Insoles [ProFLEX], knowing it was going to be cold and we had to sit still in a boat, on the ocean, in the arctic. I put your insoles into my winter boots and had the remote control in an accessible pocket. Whenever my feet started to feel a little uncomfortable, I simply hit the button, turned the insoles on for a few minutes and was good to go. The application of the remote control let me use the insoles for two days without recharging them.

The only regret I have is, that I could not take a picture of your product and the polar bear at the same time … but then again, that might be a good thing.

Happy Trails,

"My boots were frozen blocks of ice at times, but my feet and toes stayed warm and comfortable because of your ProFLEX Heated Insoles."

Thanks for saving my toes, literally! In February 2016, our Arctic2Atacama expedition included a multi-day, unsupported crossing from Qikiqtarjuaq Island, across the frozen Arctic Ocean, and a traverse of Baffin Island throughout the Akshayuk Pass. The entire journey was human powered, on foot and fat tire mountain bikes! We then completed a 1,200 km ride through the Atacama Desert (the driest place on Earth), retracing my original north to south running route I did in 2011. It was obviously cold in the Arctic with temperatures reaching -60C, but your heated insoles were also a life saver in the desert at night! This was a very challenging expedition that spanned over 100C on the thermometer.
 
My boots were frozen blocks of ice at times, but my feet and toes stayed warm and comfortable because of your ProFLEX Heated Insoles. We fought through blizzards, extreme wind chill, frostbite, deep snow and ice – and I’m not sure that I would have made it through this expedition without frostbitten feet if it wasn’t for your insoles.
 
Keep making great products, and I look forward to using all of your ThermaCELL Heated Products on my next adventure!
 
Sincerely,
Ray Zahab

“I used the Original Heated Insoles in my climbing boots because I needed the thickness. I used the new model in my approach boots, and same result. Warm feet. It was incredibly cold, and this product blew me away again.”

Dear ThermaCELL,

We had terrible weather, so no summit, but those insoles are off the chart. The worst and most exposure a mountaineer has is in the AM when putting on super cold boots. You sleep with your liners to keep them as warm as possible, but you can’t sleep with your boots, so they are as cold as the air when you put your liners and feet in the boots and it is nearly impossible to heat the boot system. For example, on Everest, I was never able to get my feet warm, and I ended up not freezing my feet, but they were without feeling for a good 6 months after that trip.

On this trip, I put my boots on, hit high for 10 minutes, and my feet were NEVER cold after that. NEVER!! We had -20 and -30 temps with 50 to 100mph wind which netted a near -100 wind chill and my feet were never even moderately cold.

THANKS!!!!!!

I wanted to write to give you an update on the performance of the ThermaCELL Heated Insoles you had sent me for testing. In the last 5 months, I have had the opportunity to try them in varying conditions. I have used them on ice and snow with temperatures ranging from -5 to 35 degrees. I am thoroughly amazed each time that my feet stay so comfortable. I have been prone to cold feet all my life but NO LONGER! Absolutely amazing product.

In my line of work, I spend a considerable amount of time outside on shooting ranges. Recently, I was on a range at 5 degrees for 8 hours. My feet were warm and comfortable and that is only due to the ThermaCELL Heated Insoles that were in my boots. I’ve attached a picture for your viewing.

Thanks again,
Sergeant Jim

“The best benefit so far is the ability to adjust the temperature setting while on the move and the absence of bulky batteries and wires.”

Dear ThermaCELL,

I’ve been wearing the heated insoles as much as possible in order to get a good feel of their performance. The best benefit so far is the ability to adjust the temperature setting while on the move and the absence of bulky batteries and wires. We move in and out of vehicles and structures everyday with extreme temperature variations. Sometimes we're outdoors for a few minutes, sometimes for multiple hours. So far my feet have remained comfortable. I don't know about everyone else but if I can't keep my feet and hands warm it becomes a miserable day. Your Thermacell Insoles help immensely. Thanks for your product.

“I have been able to work longer hours out on my snowmobile in sub zero weather. The insoles are under my feet everyday and they are working great.”

Hello ThermaCELL,

The insoles are working great it has been a cold winter and the warmer my feet are the better. I have been able to work longer hours out on my snowmobile in sub zero weather. The insoles are under my feet every day and they are a working great. Switching out the batteries is easy with the car charger. They are high on my list off gear to have with me on sub zero weather. I was able to put over one hundred miles on my snowmobile one day with -15 degree weather and my feet were warm. Standing on the side of the trail running radar I am able to stay there longer which has been a help enforcing speed. Thanks for your product.

Dear ThermaCELL,

I just wanted to let you know I did receive the insoles and dished them out to the guys that ordered them.  These are awesome!!

They really make a huge difference! It’s currently -20ºF outside where we work and my feet don't even know it!  I can’t wait for the boss to try these.

I already have more people wanting them.

Thanks again,

“Feedback from my team was very positive about how the product operated and kept their feet warm. The winter in Boston this year was record setting snow and difficult conditions for the guys.”

Dear ThermaCELL,

This past season we tested the ThermaCELL ProFLEX Heated Insoles with our HVAC workers on a Boston high-rise construction site.

Feedback from my team was very positive about how the product operated and kept their feet warm.  The winter in Boston this year was record setting snow and difficult conditions for the guys.

As an owner, I believe that if the workers have warm feet, they concentrate better on the job, not the cold. My foreman also noted that the other added benefit is maintaining productivity during the colder months. Warm feet give the guys one less thing to complain about!

Overall, I’m very happy with the ThermaCELL heated products and results my team has had using them.

Sincerely,
Thomas Scolaro
