9. Terramar 1069-1

The Terramar 1069-1 features a blend of acrylic, polyester, and wool, which does a good job of keeping your feet warm on its own. That's important given that the heating element running the length of the sock leaves a lot to be desired.
  • runs on a 9 volt battery
  • sewn-on velcro pouch
  • elastic is too tight

7. Gerbing 12V

Intended for bikers to use while riding, the Gerbing 12Vs need a direct current power source to keep you warm, like that of a motorcycle battery. If you're not a biker, these are not the socks for you, but if you are, they will work quite well.
  • patented microwire technology
  • worn over regular socks
  • need a temperature controller

Weight 9.6 ounces
Rating 3.9 / 5.0

6. TherMedic HSB01

The TherMedic HSB01 use far infrared therapy treatment intended for patients with chronically cold feet, rather than for outdoors enthusiasts who like to play in the wilderness regardless of the temperature. That being said, they work quite well to keep you warm.
  • subjective power variance
  • 30-minute automatic shutoff
  • batteries not included
Brand TherMedic
Model HSB01
Weight 10.9 ounces
Rating 4.1 / 5.0

5. Volt 3V

For customers enamored of compression gear wrapped around any part of the body for both hot and cold applications, the tight, thin Volt 3Vs are made with the same moisture-wicking micro-polyester you've come to recognize as the paragon of athletic heat control.
  • four power settings
  • wireless controller bracelet
  • not safe to get wet
Brand Volt
Model 3V-SK-GR
Weight 1.3 pounds
Rating 4.3 / 5.0

4. Nordic Gear Lectra

By using D cell batteries as their power source, the Nordic Gear Lectra stay warm for longer than a great deal of the competition. The only downside is that the weight and bulk of such a large battery makes the upper portion of the socks far less comfortable.
  • 17 percent wool blend
  • originally designed for fishermen
  • noticeable wire
Brand Turtle Fur

Weight 8.8 ounces
Rating 4.3 / 5.0

3. Flambeau Men's Kit

The Flambeau Men's Kit utilizes a carbon fiber heating element that is not only practically indestructible, it's also lightweight and unobtrusive inside the woven design. Combined with the slimline battery, these are a very comfortable option.
  • medium-weight build
  • forward heat concentration
  • under 5 hours of working time
Brand Flambeau
Model F250
Weight 1.1 pounds
Rating 4.8 / 5.0

2. Global Vision Kit

Featuring a heated front instep, not only does the Global Vision Kit work just fine in very wet conditions, the socks also seem to dry at an incredible rate when you take them off, most likely due to the company's proprietary cotton and spandex blend.
  • highly breathable
  • three temperature settings
  • reinforced heel and toe
Brand Global Vasion

Weight 1.5 pounds
Rating 4.7 / 5.0

1. Lenz 1535

What separates the Lenz 1535 from the rest of its competition is an interactive smartphone app that connects via Bluetooth. The program gives you real-time battery feedback and lets you control the degree of heat applied to your feet.

  • three heat settings
  • work up to 14 hours
