The Nordisk Mos Down Shoes are lightweight and warm slippers for use in mountain huts, in your tent or very occasional use around the house. After a freezing day with your feet squished into ski boots or kicking your crampons into bullet hard ice, there really is nothing better than warming your toes up in some cosy down shoes. Warm enough for middle-of-winter use, they're also light and extremely packable, making them a luxury you can afford to carry on multi-day trips and expeditions.
The sole of the Mos shoes is made from a very light fabric with an anti-slip pattern on it, ideal for use on hut floors. Elastic around the top seals the heat into your feet. The shoes also come with a carry bag for easy storage and transport.
These are designed as lightweight hut slippers for occasional use. They are not robust enough for everyday household use.
Each of the colours has a different fabric as the upper, this makes no difference to the functionally to the slippers. They are fabric remnants from sleeping bag production so do have slightly different properties. These are as follows:

Thankyou, cozy and light weight, ideal for relaxing in the yacht after a days ski touring in Lyngen Norway. Come with a useful net storage bag.
I bought these slippers for a ski touring trip. I'm a size 10 and the large are a good fit, despite the sizing information. They are light and pack down small which is a must for touring. However they are also toasty warm. They appear to be a bit fragile, I was careful with them over the week and they look fine. I thoroughly recommend these, much nicer than the random slippers that you get in the huts.
Judging by the first pair that I received, which were to correspond with my normal shoe size, then there is a sizing problem with this product.
However, once exchanged for the next size down they were a comfortable fit. They are very light weight and very warm and can be worn without socks without experiencing cold feet. They also pack very small and will not only take up hardly any space in your case but will not use up any of your valuable, and often meagre, luggage allowance.
Pleasantly surprised by these for the price, first time I've bought this type of slipper. As others have mentioned there are of course much more expensive tent slippers available, but for regular trekking or even simply campsite camping, these would do perfectly. The come with a pretty useful mesh storage sack (as it's good to not store 'down' things compressed) and are much more durable than I was expecting, though I'm not going to wear them round the house - I think FW specifically mentioned they're not for this.
I'm usually 43/44 and the large fits perfectly. I have an issue with Raynaud's disease (had the check the spelling of that...) meaning my hands and feet can get super cold in the winter which can obviously be a real pain for any outdoor sports. These slippers though have gone a long way to helping with that for trekking/camping, and I'll probably take them next time I use my bivi too since they weigh next to nothing.
I purchased these to keep my feet warm in a tent and was impressed with how light and small they pack down. I haven't tried them out whilst camping yet, but have been wearing them around the house and they are toasty warm and should do the job I got them for. My only concern is that the material is the same as a down jacket and I'm not sure that will be hard wearing enough for footwear, but these will only be used for sitting around in a tent so it shouldn't be an issue.
I am a Scout Troop Leader and I'm always on at the Scouts about not wearing outdoor shoes in tents. I had been looking for and at Tent Slippers for a while - all either too cheap and nasty or over priced. Googled and Googled and Googled, came across Nordisk Mos Down shoes, read the reviews, checked out "Nordisk co" So that's how I chose them...
Now the Review, short and simple. Imagine 20ft high neon lights saying "Fantabulus" OR I could rant on for ages on how wonderful these are!!! They are soft, warm, slept at minus 2 in my Bivi Bag with them on. Woke up with warm toasty feet. They pack down to almost nothing. They wash well, and dried really quickly. Light weight and are in my bushcraft/ camping pack ready for my next trip. i'm so happy with them and the fantastic service from Facewest, i'm going to order another pair for use in the house.
I often suffer from cold feet while camping (despite using a decent sleeping bag) so have been looking for a pair of down socks (or similar) for a while. These came up in an internet search I did and looked like they might fit the bill and were a lot cheaper than Rab or PHD down socks. The manufacturer and others made comments that they weren't slippers and the soles would wear out if they were used as such (which would not be a problem for my intended use so) I took the plunge. Delivery was prompt from Facewest (as usual) and the package was promisingly compact and light but when I opened it the contents had much more in common with my existing North Face tent mules than the beefed up down socks I was hoping for. This is probably my own fault for misinterpreting the description but I am a bit disappointed and my search for some warm, insulated tent socks at a reasonable price goes on. To sum up, if you're looking for an attractive, well made, good value pair of light weight slippers/hut shoes then these will fit the bill. If you're looking for a pair of down socks with a minimal sole that you can wear in your tent and in your sleeping bag look elsewhere. At least I have a spare pair of travel slippers now!
I bought the Nordisk Mos Down Shoe as a present for my mother since she is always feet-freezing at home.
I chose the red ones because their upper was much stronger, although they are very soft and flexible. They are very light and manageable and warm enough. I am sure that I have made a very very good choice.
My mother is very happy with them at home. The size is in the long side (small fits up to 39 EU)
Pros: They are light weight, compact and comfortable and can be rolled up for packing, which is perfect for alpine mountaineering. They keep your feet warm too.
Cons: They are not very robust compared to the North Face alternative, especially the sole. They are perfectly adequate for inside the tent/hut/house. Absolutely not for venturing out, not even to pick up the newspaper. My feet also sweat within 5 minutes of wearing them, perhaps this is my feet rather than the product.
The sizing runs large, so be aware when buying. I'd go one size down. I bought a medium for my size 8 feet and they are probably 2 sizes too big.
I bought these as a result of my last ski-touring trip where we were the victims of callous "hüttenschuh" robbery in the boot room. So, these seemed the perfect solution to using the hut-provided slippers. They are superb, and the mesh zip pouch provided is really handy as well. However, be careful of sizing. I'm a 44.5/45, and so ordered the Large. They were huge. So I probably need the Mediums. Great hut slippers.
