I think that you can get the full length insoles in most sporting goods stores. The pouch heaters don't work all that great in boots---they work okay in gloves. Some of the insoles last up to 8 hours and I swear by them. I always carry a set in my day pack as I HATE sitting but if I have to, I'll pull em out and put them inside the ole boot. Plus they work great if you ride a horse and are not moving much. And if you wear socks sleeping, you can actually put them between a thin and thick pair and have warm toasty feet.
