Heated boot carrying bags... what's out there?

post #1 of 12

12VDC car plug-in option is a must.

Single-shoulder strap carry is preferred.

 

What's out there that I really ought to know about?

The one that I have is from Zip Fit/Hot Gear(?), I believe.It is one of the best purchases I have ever made. When you put on those "warm" boots, they form around you feet and feel soooo good. I wish I could put them in the bag to take them off!

Price was $150 two years ago. They have both a 12volt and a 120v plugs;a single carry strap; hidden shoulder straps; a carry handle; and many hidden pockets, for goggles, etc.,some mesh some solid material. A adjustable "pocket" on top to put a helmet in.

Many good ski shops carry them. If nothing else, REI has them.

I just flew with my Hot Gear classic last night.I really like the bag, but it's kind of big for air travel if you fill it up.  No way could you fit a pro or double in any airline rightsizer.

 

You might consider the Ajax if your flying often?

I've left my hot gear bag plugged in at the lodge.  End of the day, just stick your feet + boots into your bag and let them bake for a minute or so.  They slip right off.  icon14.gif

 

I love my hot gear bag, but the helmet "pocket' on top is pretty useless.

Sven/Ivan.  Two different guys/companies, both in Aspen.

Hmm.   That's a good thought but road trips are primary focus now and in foreseeable future.   The double and the pro look interesting in that regard.   Why does the Classic go on about /male/ skiers?   ???

Hot Gear Bags makes some great products, Skiessentials has them available and it looks like they are currently on sale, some of the best pricing I've seen:

It is my understanding that "Zip Fit" is distributing the "Hot Gear" product. My bag, which is 2 years old, has both names on it.

I'll attest to the backpack straps on the Classic being set too far apart to be comfortable for most women to use. Mine continuously slide down onto my upper arms (and I've got pretty wide shoulders for a chick).

I got an original hot gear from Fuxi Racing.

That was one of the best moves I have made.

Later I got the bigger Bode signature model again from Fuxi.

Sure is easier to put on 120 flex boots when they are warm.

Amen.

Reason I got a second one, my wife appropriated the first.

Girls don't have to act tough and truly appreciate the luxury of warm boots.

Kinda like a spa for each foot to start the day.
