Have used various brands. These appear to be the most durable. I have bad hands, so utilize these all winter. Best for backcountry or crosscountry sking when your hands are not as active. They have a relationship with the Conservation Alliance, giving some profits to this program. If you order direct from www.warmers.com, you can get them for $1.55 per, no sales tax. They make several other products, toe and body warmers, etc.

I love these things! I use them all the time on colder-weather backpacking trips. I use the toe-warmers, too. They're a blessing when you first crawl into your bag for the night and they last at least 6 hours.

I use these bad boys...
nearly every time I am out on the ice. They are nice to pre-warm climbing gloves and can also be used as feet warmers. I actually like their smaller size, it makes them much more versatile.

Re: I use these bad boys...
Dan, right on. Stick them in your next dry pair of gloves if doing multi pitch ice...and yes, I buy these in bulk at Costco and do not buy the more expensive foot ones....I stick the hand ones between layers of socks on top of my toes. The socks hold them in place and they last longer than the foot ones, more of the substance in the hand ones and a lot cheaper this way. Thanks for bringing up these points. Of course I do not need them for my feet unless it is damn cold, like -20c.

Hot Stuff!
When you hands or feet are turning to ice, what else can you use. Take these with you whenever you are out in the cold. This should be one of the 10 essentials in winter. They last a long time and are worth their weight in gold.
