    during snow removal ide like to start carrying a hand warmer . the ones i have run on lighter fluid like the one in below link and im lucky if i can get them to light and stay running . ive also tried some of the hot hands chemical types that are to me decent but not outstanding so im wondering what others use ?

    I've never seen the zippo ones, pretty cool. Haven't tried warmers a lot, but open to suggestions as well

    ive only had one zippo but ide never reccomend them as mines a pita to even light let alone keep lit , this despite the 1000 good reviews at amazon . though ive learned many times the reviews there are 50/50

    I don't use the ones that require lighter fluid. I use the hothands for hunting. BJs wholesale has a box of 54 pairs for $20. They do last the ten hours as advertised and work really well

    I will throw them on my dash and turn the defroster on to get them started and dry my gloves off in between stops

    Real men don’t need hand warmers,
    They hire people to shovel snow!

    Don’t use hand warmers

    Live in Alaska

    Hand warmers stat in emergency survival packs and get changed out due to expiration.

    However
    Still don’t need them if you have shovel crews

    If you’re still shoveling snow and you’re the “owner” you’re doing it wrong

    You had to pull the "Alaska" card;)
