Papa,
Amazon has a TON of rechargeable hand warmers from $16 to ďas much as you want to payĒ, with some made by Zippo and others. I donít use them so I canít give you any feedback, but I imagine you can get an idea about how good the are by the Amazon reviews. I had frostbite several years ago, so I know about cold hands. Ski.         (P.S. They are electric and lighter fluid rechargeable.)
"Ice fishing...ah, the anticipation! 🎣Ē

One of my friends turned me on to the chemical (disposable) warmers. One in each pocket and it makes all of the difference in the world.
They last for quite a long time as well...  :tipup:

I use the disposable hand warmers when the need arises. And, I still have my old Jon E hand warmer that I use from time to time.

In my opinion,go with a rechargeable unit,they last for several hrs,are odorless,and if not needed for warmth,they can charge a cell phone.My wife bought me a rechargeable made by FourHeart,I believe it was under $25.00,it has 3 settings and will last around 12 hrs on low.Ive never needed to use it on high much,it was actually too warm on high.

X2 on this warmer/charger. I keep one in a mitten, while wearing fingerless woolies, and switch it back and forth between hands as needed.

Get yourself a muff. What I did was buy a muff, rolled up some polar fleece and inserted it into the muff as an extra layer (could use the back of an old wool shirt or some type of other warm material), then put hand warmers inside of it. That muff has kept my hands warmer than anything else I have ever tried.

Another option you can try is to get a pair of wrist bands similar to those tennis players or baseball players wear and put one of those chemical hand warmers in it.  They seem to keep the blood warm going to your fingers and you can tolerate the cold a little longer, especially when you dip your hands in the hole to save the catch of the day that always seems to come unhooked as you lift it out haha.

The way to go.  BP meds treating me the same way.  I scoffed at a friend who used one all the time till he convinced me to try one.  Don't feel right without it now for a lot of activities.  Room for chemical hand warmers, snacks, a small box of jigs/plastics, etc.  Wide price range, plenty of insulated muffs available.

Feel your pain! Up until last season I never had issues with clod hands. Yes my hands got cold but last year it was painful, and numbing! So thanks for posting, Think I will look into a muff, and those chemical warmers. Hope you find something that will work for you!
Keep it safe! JDL

 I have several different muffs that I use.     For fishing, get one that has a hand warmer pocket ( for added warmth) and  the waist belt so you can wear it outside your coat.     Best investment I made to keep my hands warm and still ready for action ;D.

I use my Jon-e hand warmer from time to time, problem with that one is the smell of the fumes.  I usually stock up at Costco with boxes of Little Hottie's hand & toe warmers.

I use the Woolie boogers made/sold by Screeming Eagle archery supplies. They are big mitts full of wool. Your hands slide in and out with ease and if you put a chemical pack in there it is almost too hot. They make a muff too that my wife usually uses. I donít think you can find anything better made than these. You will not have cold hands again.
