Can anyone recommend some rechargeable heated socks that can be powered on and change temperature settings with an included remote?

Thought about making my own…..intended to either purchase a heated garment and make a DIY pair…..OR - buy the materials and make it myself - the ribbon heating element is fairly inexpensive…..haven’t made the time for this project……passing along the idea to inspire someone!

Bought a pair off Amazon that you can turn on/off and control via app on your phone.

Costco has some that are Bluetooth controlled and you can't beat their return policy if they end up being junk!

Got a link, I don't have a Costco near me and a search of their site yielded nothing for me. Also, do you have experience with them, or just saw they sell some?

My feet have been begging me for this upgrade too. My main question for those who have used them: Is the mainly cotton construction of all these an issue when you're feet start sweating and getting wet? Or does the heat make up for the fact that the cotton loses it's insulating qualities once wet? I can't seem to find any that aren't mostly cotton. All my hunting socks these days are wool so that they still insulate when wet and by the end of any hunt my feet are always wet with sweat.

Well after a lot of searching and a couple phone call I ended up buying the Volt Hear socks. They are not the most expensive I found but there are a lot of cheaper options. I decided on these for a few reasons. One, a remote or phone control was a must. I didn't want to have to get half undressed to turn them on once I cool off from walking and climbing. Turning them on while/before getting dressed just seems dumb. Two, Volt has been around a while and when I called I talked to an English speaking American that knew the product. Which leads to reasons three and four. Volt's elements are stainless steel vs most others being carbon, the stainless steel will be more durable long term. Warranty, most others were 90 days or less. Volt is 1 year, after the first year it cost $30 for repair/replacement per instance for life. I also searched and found a 20% off coupon and shipping was free since they were over $50. I ordered directly from their website as suggested by the guy I talked to so help if warranty is ever needed. I honestly wanted to avoid heated socks just to not have to deal with batteries. Problem is nothing else has proved to be easier/less of a pain. I hate packing in boot covers/blankets plus the cost of chemical warmers. My hope is that I can wear just any boots now and keep my feet comfortable. I will report back once I have some time with them.
