Intuition LV Liners

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have experience with the any of the Intuition LV liners?  I've had several emails with Intuiton and they recommend the Dreamliner LV for my fit. 

 

Looking to find out if the LV version will provide additional warmth compared to my stock liner.  My previous boots had powerwaps and I never had a problem with cold feet.  Newer boots and my toes are always cold and it hasn't been very cold out yet. Just wonder if there is enough material in the LV version to keep things warm.

My advice is buy based on fit, not warmth.  You can always buy yourself a pair of boot-gloves (http://cozywinters.com/shop/bga.html) if your feet are cold.

 

That said, I'm using a pair of medium volume Dreamliners and have no complaints about the cold.   If you can, I'd strongly recommend finding a store that carries Intuition liners and trying on several models, sizes, and volumes to find the one that fits best.  I tried the 'go with their recommendation over the phone' approach and wound up with an unsuitable liner (the Luxury Liner, which with it's 6mm footbed was just way too thick).  Intuition were great about it, and replaced them for free, but it took going to their shop and trying on a bunch of options to get it right.

 

Now, you might be able to get a good fit over email, but that was not my experience.

Trying to stay away from electric boot heaters. No one around here stocks more than the basic powerwraps.  Might have to order a bunch and return what doesn't work. They are fine with that, but I was hoping to find someone who has used a LV liner.  They specifically recommended the Dreamliner because I do use custom footbeds and it is not as thick under foot.

Who said anything about electric boot heaters?  A boot glove is just a neoprene cover that fits over your boots for added insulation.

Boot gloves are great. 

 

Intuition liners are wonderful once your stock liner packs out (after about 20-30 days).
