Seen these at Walmart. I thought of dropping one inside each glove it really gets cold. These may work real well with leather mitts. Only $1.00 for 6. They have larger ones 2 in a pack for a $1 too. The big ones may work ok in the inside pocket of your riding jacket. JR

In the last few weeks of cold weather I've seen a lot of the PGR riders using them and they seem to like them. Price is right for something that is a one time use item.

They work well. I keep them in my winter pack that stays in my vehicle all winter...along with food, folding shovel, fire starter, blanket, first aid kit etc.etc. When you travel over the mts. it is always good to be prepared.

I work outside all winter and find them really good. They can actually get too hot, uncomfortable but not a burn. They take about fifteen minute to start working but great after that. Good for most of the day.

You should note that they work better with mitts than gloves because they don't get down into the fingers of the gloves. Mitts don't work well with all the switches.

I've used them to warm up small parts on service calls as well.

If I go out today I may tape one to my nose. It's cold out up here. :snowman:

I bought a big box of them at Costco a few years ago and still have most of them left. For me they get uncomfortably hot in one spot while the rest of my hands (or chest or whatever) are still frozen. My favorite hand warming accessory is Hippo Hands.

Im in the military and we use those all the time. They do work great. I have the same pair of gloves that are in your pic so they will fit. one thing i will say is that you may get some that work to well and some that dont work at all and you have to move them around inside the glove to avoid hot spots.

i was told that the 8hr thermal patches for you back work real well. it was suggested to put one on the lower back another on the front mid-torso. keeps the organs warm,thus more blood can flow to the extremities.

I have used them as a police officer when I had to stand a post outside during the winter. I always keep a couple handy incase I got assigned to traffic control for a winter fire. I stick them inside my jacket and they work great.

JR, I've used them bowhunting a few times. Put them in my boots too, down near the toes & they will keep your feet nice & toasty. DeDub, how's things in Vilonia? I've been through there a few times on my way to my uncles place in Conway. Next time I'll look you up for a cup & a chat.

My wife uses them hands and feet. She starts getting cold in the low 70s while riding and the seat/backrest hear comes on full blast. I've seen her use those at 50 and below. She likes them. I can't say for sure - I was wearing mesh gloves at 32F this morning - so what do I know :doh:.

Always used them during deer season. biggest drawback has to be managing hot spots in the gloves. :gunhead:

they also make heated insoles, i have Gerbings heated socks but prefer to use the heated insoles just because they are less hassel, $2 for a pair when they are on sale at Fleet Farm

if your camping where its cold the bigger warmers work great in a sleeping bag, if i throw one or 2 in the bag down by my feet i sleep GREAT

We get those Hothands in the camping shops here and they are really great. We slip them into gloves and the heat lasts for hours. I didn't know they could be had as insoles as well.
