Rated3out of5byGearhound99fromComfy, but best worn with socksBought these after a hut trip where I wish I'd had something a little warmer than slippers to dash out into the snow and fill a pail with snow. These will do the trick for next time. There is a nice fleece lining on the uppers, but none on the sole, so they are not all that comfy to wear in bare feet. YMMV, but I usually wear socks with them.

Rated5out of5byfoodrunnerfromAwesomeI bought these three years ago. Still Awesome. Keep my feet super warm in the cold weather. One of the best items I have every purchased. I will buy them again. Only thing is they can smell bad and I don't know if they can be watched.

Rated4out of5byTerryDarcfromToatsy FeetThese work perfectly for what I wanted, not to go traipsing across glaciers as the sales person suggested, but to wear in bed when my toes go numb with cold.
I got a super sized model, like XL, and they're about right tho they tend to shift about on my feet. They are really, really toasty and I'm very happy I bot them but I don't know I'd go about in camp with them on. Maybe, but these don't stay on my feet like they might. Probably a combination of my feet and the extra size that I bot.

Rated5out of5byMarvin BfromSleeping Bags for the Feet: WARMI wear these at home in my 60°F apt. Brr. But now my feet are always super warm and cozy. I've long said it is more important to be warm than it is to be in style, and these slippers certainly require that mindset. They are totally ridiculous, but so, so worth it. I especially love that the ankle and above is kept warm. I'm a very thin person, and if my ankles get cold there is no hope of keeping the foot warm. I would caution anyone who has stairs in their home. The sole just has a few plastic dots for traction. I would probably rubberize the sole with some spray rubber or rubber cement to prevent slipping on steps. The soft fleece inside of these slippers makes them great for socks or bare feet. The thick sole also keeps plenty of insulation between foot and floor. So many slippers neglect this important element, but not REI.
If you want to be warm, GET THESE.

Rated4out of5byNoVaBPackrfromupdate to earlier reviewSee my earlier review for background. Generally, I wanted a down bootie for cold weather camping-inside the tent. My feet get cold in a 0 bag even at 35 degrees. Now, I've tested these in the teens and they worked great. I wore sock liners, wool socks, and these. My feet were toasty all night.

Rated4out of5byMatthewHowellfromGreat For Snow Camping and Cold NightsI recently bought these for snow camping in Oregon. I do a lot of adventures with Willamette Valley Outdoors, a local outdoor group I run out of Eugene, Oregon. After seeing several pair of these on others on a very cold trip to the Maiden Peak Shelter in the Cascades, I decided to look into getting a pair. They are affordable, very comfortable, keep my feet warm on cold nights in the tent, and they are down, so they pack light for backpacking trips. I wear a size 11.5 in men's shoes and the XL fits me perfectly. The booties come in very handy for cold nights out snow camping. They aren't large and bulky like snow boots, and they can be placed in a small pocket inside my backpack for trips, so they are easy to bring along. With proper usage, not hiking around in, the sole will hold up just fine. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that enjoys being in the snow. Great way to keep the feet warm at night, or for slipping on after a long day of snowshoeing.

Rated5out of5byRichard OfromToasty warm.These BOOTIES are designed to be worn in the house, cabin, or tent, not outdoors. Anyone who bought these thinking they were going to wear them outside was just being silly.
Super warm and cozy. The sole pad is NOT felt, but rather 1/2 inch (approx) heavy foam with a heavy synthetic fabric cover with anti-skid mini-dots on the bottom. Perfect for that really cold floor or tent bottom. Or anyone with poor circulation in their feet - these will keep you warm.
