The Montane Fireball Footie is a micro packable lightweight slipper sock that is perfect for wearing in your tent or cabin after a long day on the hills.
Montane says:Minimalist tent socks for those looking to shed every possible gram from their kit but not compromise on comfort. Use these on a multi day ultra distance race, such as the Montane Yukon Arctic Ultra, where keeping your body healthy and functioning at its peak is critical.
The 100% windproof Pertex Quantum rip stop outer is not only tough and durable, but also has superior water repellent properties. This, combined with the Hypalon panel on the sole of the sock, ensures that the Fireball will stand up to some pretty rough treatment. The sock is insulated with 40g of Primaloft Gold that keeps your feet warm and dry and is also easily packable. It has a comfortable microfleece lining throughout which provides warmth and the soft ribbed ankle cuff ensures a close, comfortable fit.
The Fireball Footie is not as warm at the Prism Bootie as it only has 40 grams of insulation compared to the Prism's 160 grams, however it is a lot lighter and packs down smaller. Perfect for traveling when pack space is an issue.
