I'm not sure if this is the correct thread for this post - but I'm sure KK will kindly move it to where it should be if necessary!!

I thought I'd heads up about these Heat Patches being on offer as they are so good and lots of Ouchers may find them very useful - especially in this weather.

It's disability-related, it can stay where it is  >biggrin<

Though at first when I read the title, I had visions of footwear with warming soles or something, so I have put the Boots in inverted commas to save any confusion  ;-)

Mind you, something like that would be lovely!

I've got something like that.  You bend a little metal thing inside the insoles and the whole thing heats up.  I'd use them except that the heat does not last long and you have to boil the whole insole in a saucepan before you can start again.

Whereabouts in the shop can these things be found Yvette?

Footwear with warming insoles is available. It is not difficult to purchase insoles which are heated by non-obtrusive battery systems.  Many other items of electrically heated clothing are also available - socks,  jackets, trousers, gloves etc.  They contain flexible heating elements and are powered by batteries - either regular batteries or rechargeable ones.  Where heated clothing has been specifically  designed for use by motorcyclists, some of it can also be plugged directly into the bike as an alternative power supply.

These clothes look like completely normal garments and they are wearable like completely normal garments. The more sophisticated ones have multiple heat settings much like an electric blanket and often they can be adjusted so that either all or only sections of the garment are heated at any one time.  They are not cheap but prices for socks and insoles certainly won't break the bank.

I have slippers with microwavable insoles.  They don't stay hot very long but are really got for warming up frozen feet.

Neurochick,  Where do you find these items please.  I really like the idea of a heated jacket for when it is really cold.  It will be worth the money.

I'll take a look when I am next near a Boots.  Thanks Yvette.

Heated clothing is available from countless retailers of different types - sports shops, motorbike kit retailers, care/mobility stores even high street clothing retailers etc.  The best thing to do is just Google heated clothing and have a look because the prices and designs vary enormously.

Auntie,  there's a company called Blaze that do a number of different heated jackets,  scarves and socks.  I bought some heated socks for my father to take fishing and he found them quite useful.

Well, what a sheltered life I lead.  On with the research.
