Pocket hand warmers

Hi Guys,
            Any suggestions on these Pocket Hand Warmers you see at the stores, which would be the best ones?
 Thx.

I use Hot Hands pocket warmers so much that I even get them for christmas from people.
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

I use the disposable hot hands by the case :)

When bringing the little ones out, you can put them in their boots & mittens and make them much happier.

Yes and only if you pour the stuff on your hands when filling it.

I actually have one like RG but I find it stinky. Doesn't bother the fish, just me.
This one works on solid fuel sticks.

There are some solid fuel sticks that stink. I threw some away last year. If you buy Coughlan's there's no problem.
I've never tried the Zippo, but they sure make some good stuff. I'll be down Bradford way next week, I may have to check one out.

I have an old style one that takes lighter fluid, smell doesn't seem to bother the fish and it stays warm for 7-8 hrs

I use the disposable kind because I like one for each hand and one for the back of my neck under my hat when its really cold.
        Strangers stopping strangers just to shake there hand.

What ever happenend to the ones that had a penny looking piece of metal in them and you bent the penny looking thing and activated the hand warmer ???? Then you boiled it to reset it for the next trip.
Take Care and God Bless

I always have a bunch of those Hot Hands in my ice bag if I do need to warm up. They don't work so hot (pun!) in my boots though. Lack of air and moisture kill them prematurely. Thought I saw boots that were designed to accept them. Cabelas maybe?

Me likey that Zippo Dave. I may have to upgrade. Especially if they are more efficient.
My grandfather gave me a Jon-e warmer for X-mas back in the early or mid 80's. I re-discovered it when I got into ice fishing 7 years ago. Still works like a charm after 25 years. Reeking lightly of naphtha (sp?) is nostalgic I guess.  ;)

My Cabelas Predator Extreme Pac Boots have the pouch in the bottom of the inner liner for the toe warmers.  I'm hoping they are warm enough that I don't need the toe warmers.  I bought the boots after the season last spring and haven't worn them yet, but with 1200 grams of thinsulate they should keep my feet warm!

I had a large one of those for my back. My wife bought it for me . It had a belt and stayed warm for several hours. I loaned it to a friend who had back surgery and never saw it again.  :-\

I have one of those hunting hand muffs with a pocket for hand warmer. I put the jon-e heater in it on those raw days. A nice reprieve for my paws. :)
