My husband and I love camping and when we saw these tent mules we were convinced we had to have a pair. They come in men and women's, in different sizes and colours and are great, if a little expensive.
The tent mules are designed for wearing in a tent, hence the name, but we use ours in the house mainly. The men's come in three different sizes Medium (7-8.5 foot), Large (9-10.5) and Extra large (11-12.5). My husband has size 9.5 feet and finds the large size fits really well.
The women's come in extra small (6-7.5), small (8-9.5) and medium (10-11.5), I think these are USA sizes as I have the extra small and have a size 6 foot and they are pretty generous.
My husband has his in black and mine are a grey colour with a red base and trim. Both pairs have a small fabric hook at the back, I suppose this can be used to pull the slipper on, or more usefully hang them up out of the way; we do neither.
The tent mules contain Down and wool, they are water resistant and have grips on the sole to help you not slip or fall over. They are easy to slip on and keep your feet very warm, both inside the house and in the tent. I have machine washed both slippers, on a wool wash and I found that they came out fresher and still holding their shape, as I was a bit worried that they would not stand up to washing. I paid £30 for both pairs round 18months ago when Millets were having a sale, and they currently retail from anywhere around £26 to £50, both men's and women's, depending on where you shop, so its definitely worth looking around.
Overall I would recommend these tent mules to others as although they are expensive for slippers, they keep your feet warm, without making they sweaty, they are durable and wash well, they come in variety of styles, colours and sizes, are comfortable and stay on your feet well and they look cool.
Designed for use in tents these are more than just another camping acessory as I wear mine in the house as well as soon as it starts to get very cold even if the heating is on. In the mornings these are just hevenly to slip onto my feet as they keep them toastie warm and they are incredibly comfortable to wear as well.
There are male and female versions and they come in a range of different colours. I actually have a pair that are an ivory colour with a purple base and trim, teh downside to this colour is that the ivory does show the marks, if I was going to use these a lot in the outdoors I would have gone for black, I have used them when camping and they are excellent, allowing you to move about the tent in a comfortable slipper rather than in just socks and also in really cold weather I have slept with them on as they are so comfortable.
These are very lightweight to wear and also very warm, made from nylon they are filled with what is called power down and feather insulation to keep your toes warm. However they are also great to wear in a tent as they have a very durable sole which has plenty of grip so there is no risk of slipping even on a damp inner ground sheet. They are also water resistent as well ensuring your feet do not get wet and then get cold as well. The warmth does not just come from the down filler but also the sock liners on the inside add to the comfort and also the warmth of these products. I do not fuind my feet over heating in these in cold weather however they are too warm to wear once the temperature starts to rise, however when camping at night they are a must have for me.
There is one big downside with these and that is the price, I paid £30 for my pair and I have seen them on sale for up to £40 in some shops so they are not cheap however for me they are worth their weight in gold. Being a slip on design they are very easy to get on and off as well.
