I never expected such a response! OK, more info: I'm 60, and I have had pre-ventricular contractions in the past, but they are presently under control, per my cardiologist, but I will talk to him about the issue of cold feet. I'm paddling a 10.5' pack canoe/double paddle, and my gps said I averaged 3.78 mph for 2.5 hours. I have had a "cold feet" problem for as long as I can remember. I was wearing the neoprene boots over bare feet, nylon running pants, a long-sleeve cotton t-shirt, and a goretex rain jacket, with a wool stocking cap on my head and gloves. There was wind, though I did alter course to hide from it when possible. When I got back, my t-shirt was soaked with sweat, so I think I'd have been uncomfortable with more insulation on top.
