Hand warmers

Recommended Posts

Best hand warmer is Zippo lighter fuel/petrol hand warmer, however u need to replace the steel wool burning part quite regularly, depending on use.
Most convenient is those chemical one use one, not cheap on the long run.
Or you can use the boil again poppertype. Very cheap and can be picked up at pound shop or home bargain and reuse a number of time.

Eberspacher heater is good
snowy is local dealer for second hand
I got mine for £500 including wiring harness and exhaust ready to fit

Now that sounds like a lovely idea, trouble is not much space to fit one on a petrol powered 6.6m boat !!

I take it you have one and use it (zippo type)?
I have two charcoal type heaters but the blooming charcoal won’t stay alight !!
I’ve also tried the chemical ones that you have to shake to activate but they are not much better than putting your hands in your pockets !

Cos not, I'm a real man, don't need no hand warmer ;)

The missus uses it in the winter and it's lovely and warm, last almost a whole day on one refill. Must admit IF I'd used it, not saying I have, it's like having a piping hot cup of tea in your hands. 

However, getting it to light up in the first place does need practice, but flame stays lit all day.

Try neoprene diving gloves and cut the finger tips off. 

 

Can anybody recommend a tried and tested hand warmer ?
Thanks

But if I cut them off twice I’ll have no gloves left ! Just cold hands and an empty wallet !!

I used to think that fingerless gloves must be pointless as its the fingers that get cold

 

But since I tried them I use nothing else, even knitted ones that get wet still seem to work.

 

Do get a bit dirty with squid and cuttle baits at this time of year.
