Hi All, I've got a question regarding which would be a better winter VFF: the Trek Ascent Insulated or the CVT Wool? As somebody who hasn't worn a pair of VFFs before, I'm not really sure. I've been wearing Merrell Vapor Gloves (and love them), but they just aren't cutting it in the winter. On the one hand, it seems like the Trek Ascent Insulated should be warmer (it is insulated, after all, right?). But one of the things I've noticed about my Vapor Gloves is that I really feel the cold ground coming up through the soles of the shoe. And when I add up the thickness of the insole, midsole, and rubber, the CVT Wool is 12mm while the Trek Ascent Insulated is only 8mm. But maybe the other design qualities of the Trek Ascent Insulated make up for it?
I'd love to hear people's opinions on which one is better for keeping feet warm during the winter. (I wouldn't be running in either of these. I'd just be wearing them to work, around the house, etc.)
