    If you need a little extra warmth for your feet when camping, the Sidekick Sleeping Booties have you covered. Lightweight synthetic insulation offers warmth and comfort without losing loft to moisture and oils from your body. They are not a durable option for camp footwear, so be careful not to use them outside your shelter. Kids will love the X-Small!

    Synthetic material weights may vary +/- 5% due to production variances.

    1. toasty sleeping pill  star rating

      Posted by william armstrong on 16th Nov 2016

      Cold blustery snowy night in the Bigelow Range in Maine. The Sidekick booties contributed to a comfortable and sound recovery sleep helping to extend the range of my sleeping bag and keeping my pack weight down. And worn in ultra light over boots kept my feet warm preparing supper and breakfast Each and every item has to justify its inclusion when going ultra light. The sidekicks weight and compressibility are tops and function so well they fully make the cut. Great product, quality and service.

    2. must have, worth the weight  star rating

      Posted by Josh Wright on 28th Oct 2016

      So comfortable while camping. Would buy again and again.

    3. Another Great Enlightened Product!  star rating

      Posted by Bradley D Cherniwchan on 30th Aug 2016

      Great investment! Excellent addition to my back country sleep gear adds extra warmth and comfort on cold damp nights with next to no extra weight to carry! Thank you!!

    4. Super Warm  star rating

      Posted by Suzanne Betts on 15th Aug 2016

      I was considering down booties for backpacking but after reading about these I got a pair of Sidekicks. The fabric is so silky and smooth and a joy to put on. But will they be warm enough for my always cold feet? I was incredibly pleased with these booties. My feet were warm night after night. I am so in love with my Sidekicks! Thanks!

    5. Toasty warm feet  star rating

      Posted by CherylE on 16th Jul 2016

      Love them

    6. Perfect finisher for my sleep system  star rating

      Posted by Brett on 28th Apr 2016

      These booties are excellent! I'm a huge fan of EE gear, already being the owner of two of their Revelation quilts (10 and 40 degree.) As typical with EE gear, they are remarkable lightweight for the warmth they provide. I ordered these after a couple cold nights in the hammock this winter when I realized that my entire body was fine, except for my feet which were cold to the point that I couldn't sleep. These closed that gap, and now I'm good throughout anything my winters have to offer. I'll likely only need them for about 2 or 3 months out of the year, and without them I'd be shut down for those 2 or 3 months, so for me they were totally worth it.

    7. Warm feet at last!  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 19th Feb 2016

      As a woman, who suffers from bad blood circulation on top of it, my feet are cold even in the summer.
      I discovered a new level of comfort thanks to those booties!

    8. Perfect  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 18th Nov 2015

      My feet are always cold, and these are so perfect. Someone else's review said they are like little ovens for your feet, and I couldn't agree more.

    9. One of my favorite pieces of gear  star rating

      Posted by Tim Bowling on 16th Sep 2015

      While seemingly a luxury item, I am so glad I brought these along on my recent Colorado Trail thru-hike. I’ve always had issues with foot circulation: if my feet get cold, they tend to stay cold, often painfully so. During my CT thru, over what ended up being Colorado’s wettest monsoon season on record, there were many nights above treelike where my trail runners were quite wet, it was really cold, and my toes were getting painfully cold by the time my tent was set-up and dinner was ready. Normally in such a circumstance, I’d be worrying about how I was gonna warm my feet up…but not on this trip. I KNEW that if I dried my feet off, no matter how cold, and popped them in my 15-30 degree EE booties, they would be toasty warm within 5 minutes. Plus, these booties actually weigh LESS than the thick wool socks I usually carry camping for cold weather.
      Most nights, I would shift much of the down in my EE quilt up to my torso for extra body warmth. My legs, which usually feel too warm when sleeping, would feel great. My feet, which are usually too cold, would be toasty warm in my wonderful EE booties. After using these booties pretty much every night for 5 weeks, I came to realize another thing: synthetic insulation in booties is worth the extra weight. Goose-down booty options, such as those by Western Mountaineering or Feathered Friends will have issues dealing with all the oils and moisture given off by feet over many many nights. Tim at Enlightened Equipment, however, has correctly anticipated this issue and decided to make his booties out of climashield apex. Totally worth the extra ounce, in my mind.
      Summary: a luxury item, I spent many wet, cold nights around camp NOT worrying about how cold my feet were getting because I KNEW that as soon as I put my EE booties on, my feet would be as warm and comfortable as possible. I absolutely loved these things.

    10. Precisely what I was hoping for  star rating

      Posted by JP on 30th Apr 2015

      These are light, comfortable and do the trick. I sleep warm except for my feet, and these balance it out well. In some conditions, they are too warm, but I did opt for the 4oz level. I might advise the lowest level of insulation for most situations, but I haven't taken these out again in sub-freezing temperatures.
