Unique Uses of Chemical Hand Warmers

Ten alternate uses for hand warmers.  Aside from being useful for warming your hands, feet, and body in cold weather, these chemical reactive “portable heaters” can be utilized for a multitude of other uses; running the gamut from drying out wet gear while in-the-field, to potentially life-saving first-aid items for preventing and/or treating hypothermia.

This Youtube video demonstrates how they can be used to dry your boots, pre-heat your sleeping bag, keep your drink warmer longer, provide a warm base for a canister stove, keep your water bottle from freezing, use in a 1st aid kit to warm a potential hypothermia victim, warm sore muscles, melt snow, keep batteries functioning, and dry out electronics.
