ThermaCELL ProFLEX reviews


Recommended Posts

YEah they are a bit spendy, but I did break down and buy a pair a few weeks ago. I hate cold hands and feet. I have been out in the stand bowhunting a few times in these cold temperatures. I actually just got out of the stand a couple hours ago and my feet never got cold. The insoles keep your feet at around body temperature, so not too hot so they get sweaty. I love that the batteries are a cinch to remove after use without having to remove the insole. I have Under Armour boots in size 11 and the insoles slid right in, in place of the original ones, no trimming necessary. To me, they are just as comfortable as any insole I have used in a hunting boot, even with the technology. Hope this helps.

After a while on stand, no matter what brand of boot, or how many grams of insulation were involved in the boots I have worn, my feet get cold after a while especially with single or below 0 temps and wind chills. That's just my reasoning for using the insoles.

For that cost, how about a better pair of warmer boots? full-27051-51351-augie.gif

Or just buy these and use one of the half dozen pairs most of us already have...

It's a horse a piece to me. Spend the money on bigger and maybe heavier boots or modify my smaller boots to handle the temps. Don't get me wrong, $179 is not nuthin'.

I hope they got the issues they have with the originals fixed. I bought a set last year and they dont work for [email protected]#t! Read a lot of reviews before you drop any money on them. I'd go with boot blankets or the shake up style heater pads before I will ever get another pair of these things.

Skee,

I'm curious what problems you had. I went ahead and picked up a pair about a week ago. I tried them out last weekend and really liked them. Honestly I only had to turn them on twice on Saturday and once on Sunday but I was completely happy with them.

I read through the operation manual and saw a few "Ah ha" discoveries before I used them. I might not have followed the directions had I not done the reading.

Trying something new - especially something expensive for what you think you're getting always seems like a gamble. I was halfway planning to return them since I impulsively grabbed them. They were the last pair on the hook in my size and the rebate was only good that day. I hope I don't lose. I decided to trust the Thermacell name and inspected the product thoroughly before committing to wearing them. They seem like the real deal so far.

My feet get cold easily due to diabetes. I almost went this direction but instead went with a pair of Steger cammuck mukluks that Will Steger wears on expeditions to the arctic. MY feet have never gotten cold in the 3 years I have used them ice fishing or deer hunting they weigh 2lbs for the pair. I keep the insole warmers in my pack but have yet to activate them and use them. They are just rubberized moose hide and a felt liner like any pack boot 1 pair wools socks and they fit a little loose so you maintain circulation which it the trick to staying warm. Sine you are walking on one layer of moose hide I do not know how climbing ladder stands etc would be on your feet. I hunt from the ground.

I bought a pair with rifle season so cold this year. IF YOU BUY THEM KEEP THE RECIEPT! After half of rifle and 4 days muzzle loading the batteries are broken, the little plastic case they are in snapped and the battery doesn't sit down flush and annoys the hell out of me.

And to be honest I didn't think they worked that good, that is why my advice is at least keep your receipt.

    • On C/list now post 2hrs ago.  That will plow some food plots for yeah. Talk um down a bit. 😉   Polaris Sportsman 6x6- ONLY 500 miles - $4,500 Registration card in hand and ready to go . 2005 Polaris sportsman 6x6. 500 cc. Runs great , carb just gone through , spark plug replaced. Brand new battery. ONLY 500 original miles . Comes with plow and winch .    
    • C/List is dying with not that many wheelers or sleds posted as there use to be. I know some folks don't want to get on Facebook, but Facebook Market place is the site to look on now. Tons of them listed. You could join, look for what you want, then get off before the relatives find out!  Lol   I picked up a 2009 Polaris Sportsman 500HO almost spotless with only about 450 miles on it last fall for $3500. It does take some digging and price wrangling, I looked at a few before I found this one. He wanted $3,800 for it. Good Luck.
    • If nonresident, the first 2 seasons can be tough to draw. The closest I have drawn was the C season.
    • Mileage can be relative.....my last wheeler had 10,000+ miles on it and I sold it to a friend. He is still riding it with over 13,000. Since that time I have put over 6000 on my current one. I was going to update this year but decided against it since they are so hard to come by right now. (and I still love this one)  I am admittedly a diehard Honda owner and have never and likely wouldn’t shop for anything else. I’ve had 13 different ATVs in the 44 years I’ve owned them and to this day not one has ever had a warranty visit. I think that speaks volumes.  I don’t baby my machine, it’s seen it’s share of mud 😉 but I maintain it well. I’d have no hesitation to take it anywhere, or sell it to a friend. Rundrave gave you some good sound advice for shopping, but don’t let mileage be your main determining factor. Well-maintained is better than low miles in many cases.  I do repairs on ATVs for friends, relatives etc, and aside from general appearance , the main things that I’d watch for on older machines is loose or noisy wheel bearings, brakes that don’t work well or drag, cv axles and boots and seals. Look at fluids, especially front and rear differentials, engine oil and antifreeze if it’s a liquid cooled machine. As far as tires, meh, I personally pulled off my new stock ones and replaced them before it had even been out of the garage, so the stock ones are like brand new. People replace them for all sorts of reasons including where they ride and what they use it for. 
    • Its hard to say, 1k miles in mud and beaten on could be worse than a well maintained machine with 5k that saw easy use.   I always look at the seat,  the exhaust pipe and tires. If the seat is worn, has holes etc it been ridden hard. If you can still read the logo and it doesn't have any rips or tears that says a lot.  If the exhaust header pipe and muffler is rusty its seen a lot of mud and water. If the tires are not OEM it had the original tires worn off. What did they replace them with and why? If they replaced it with big mud tires they rode in mud etc. Talk to the owner, make sure they kept up on maintenance. You will get a good feel for how it was used. Old man that just checked fields and livestock but high miles or young guy that mud rode with his buddies etc.   For under $5k I would just suggest looking for a machine  with EFI thats shaft drive . Carbs are great and most have pull start as a back up but I would have a hard time trusting an old carb unless your not afraid to dive into one yourself. Stay away from anything with chains and sprockets. They were unreliable and I wouldn't buy a one new off the showroom floor.
    • Under 5K. Looking at the list of Craig, that puts me in late 90's early 2000's machine for the most part with a few newer in that range.    What is considered high miles for an ATV? Most I see are in the 2000 range. 
    • what's your budget?   any of the newer machines in the last 10yrs will be reliable regardless of brand. get power steering if you can swing it    I am actually shopping hard right now myself. Looking to spend $5k to $7500 but prices are crazy right now. If I go any higher I might as well get a SxS. New prices are ridiculous for both.    I am just looking for that low mileage machine that someone never used and wants to get rid of. They are out there someone just keeps gets to them before I do.
    • I've never owned an ATV and ridden very few. I am looking to get a used machine for my hunting property. It will be mainly used for food plot creation and maintenance as well as some snow plowing. Any recommendations or things to look for?
    • shut down facebook      I miss the glory days on here and seeing these builds 
    • I did exactly the same thing, those pictures are invaluable. Mine starts with the bare trailer the day I brought it home. Man, that was a lot of work hours ago.  What needs to be done to get people back on HSO?
