Re: DIY hand warmers

I'll bit the bullet and kick a couple bucks for the one's sold in the stores. I can see something going horribly wrong with that, and me burning a hole through "something" ?

Re: DIY hand warmers

All that for an hours worth of heat? buy a pack that last for 10 hours and comes in a 2 pack.
More than likely you will get that "warm wet feeling" of a mess as opposed to burning something

Not to mention having a corrosive mixture to carry in your pack after you use it.

I'll second that, I have a muff for really cold weather, put 2-3 hot hands warmers in her
