    Think the specs are muddled up but looks like they weigh 125g with 60g of down in.

    There’s also a pair with removable covers


    Also just noticed they have a rather nifty sleeping bag creator

    The troos are definitely new; I checked out the Cumulus site a couple of weeks ago before ordering the Pajak down knickerbockers and they weren't on the site then.

    They look very impressive! I used the Aegismax ones last week on a quick overnight and had to take them off as my feet were too warm. It was +1 so thats a good sign for such a small cost and first use :)

    I am having to move stuff around at home though as storing all these down products is taking allot of space :/

    I've basically the same booties but unbranded and do find them a bit warm sometimes. But then my feet are odd in that they're more closely related to a heater than a foot and get hot very quickly when I'm in my sleeping bag.

    @Dave Vaughan was reading they booties are fleece lined...that the case? Also is there shock cord around ankle cuff or elastic to seal them off?

    The Aegismax booties seem to be unavailable now.

    I've seen that but the original version wasn't lined and there was no way of sealing them.

    The Black Ice booties have some fleece (more like microfibre) and elasticated cuffs unlike the Aegismax ones (which incidentally can still be found all over Aliexpress).

    Mine are lined with a softer material but I would not call it fleece and they dont have a drawcord. A drawcord would be an easy enough mod but they fit ok for me and stay on.

    I've just recently bought a pair from Cumulus. I opted for the cover boots.

    Me too, amazing value. They'll go with the down balaclava in the draw, and who knows if they'll ever be used.
