I’ve got the blaze wear thermal base layers, they are good , but don’t last a full 5 hour match , I’ve also got the gilet , which is also windproof, are they worth the money, I can’t really say, I’ll give them another go this winter though
I’ve got the socks. I have poor circulation and use them when others are fishing in trainers. I’ve tried heated insoles and various types of thermal boot and sock types. The blaze wear stuff keeps my feet from going like blocks of ice on the very coldest days. On milder days toasty warm. I wear them in neoprene wellies I got fro Aldi. On high power a couple of hours, 4 on medium, 5 on low. I tend to put them on medium when I’m 4 hours from packing up. I have another set of batteries and will change them and use them all day on the coldest days. I think the best thing I can say is that when I use them I don’t think about my feet anymore. I paid£70 for the socks with a single set of batteries (the green ones were on offer).
i saw the Jamie Harrison video and will watch the follow up with interest, the Gillett is catching my eye.
I have the base layer I tend not to turn mine on until a few hours into a match as I’m normally quite warm with walking to the peg and setting up. Weather dependant sometimes if it’s mild and I’m catching I won’t bother turning it on but
when I do I’ll set it on high and it will last me the rest of the match.
