I saw some low voltage electric heated wader socks that work with two D batteries, seems pretty cool to me ! Just wondering, anyone ever try these and what were your experiences with them ? Don't think i'll need them before the end of the season with the crazy weather we've been having anyway !!

If you get a leak in the waders (or if YOU leak in the waders) couldn't you get electrocuted?

Voltage is too low to worry about getting electrocuted. I just saw one pair that has a wire that leads up out of the waders so you can turn it on and off w/o removing your waders. Xmas from the wife I hope.
The others worked well for my brother in law but the batteries don't last too long.
