Hand/foot warmers are small (mostly disposable) packets which are held in the hand and produce heat on demand to warm cold hands. They are commonly used in outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing to keep extremities warm and assist insulated clothing. Other types of warmers are available to provide soothing heat for muscular or joint aches. Here at Outdoor Shopping we offer the best reusable butane,disposable, instant pocked handwarmers. Air activated hand warmers contain cellulose, iron, water, activated carbon (evenly distributes heat), vermiculite (water reservoir) and salt (catalyst) and produce heat from the exothermic oxidation of iron when exposed to air. They typically emit heat for 1 to 10 hours.LPG hand-warmers use lighter fluid (lighter fuel) or LPG which reacts with a platinum catalyst to release heat by oxidation reactions. These can be re-used by simply refueling.Great for winter, sports, snow, cold, keeping warm, shoes, toes, children, motorcycles, instant heat, socks, rain, trekking, climbing, and storms.
