Whether it’s cold outside or you’re in a generally cold place, it can be tough to keep the warmth in your hands.
That’s why I direct your attention to Grabber’s Hand Warmers.
They are amazing! Anyone can use them. They’re especially great for folks working outdoors for extended periods of time, or for people enjoying recreational outdoor activities, or for folks in cold offices, and anybody needing a little bit of extra warmth.
Still not convinced these are what you’re looking for? Then let me tell you about their ease-of-use, their reliability and their safety.
First off, they are super easy to use. All you need do is rip off the packaging and pull them out. They are air activated, which I understand is a common misconception.
People are often thinking you got a slap them, you need shake them, you need to knead them! No, not with Grabber’s hand warmers. With these all you need do is pull them out, let them interact with the air and they’re good to go.
Second, these are super reliable. You’re gonna feel that warmth within the first minute and you’re gonna feel its peak temperatures in 15 to 30 minutes.
Also they will last for 10 hours. That’s a really long time, that’s like your whole work shift basically. They even have a model that will last 18 hours! Unbelievable.
Another important point is how long do these last. Typically these will last you four years, which may be important if you’re planning to put these in a survival kit.
They come in a beautiful sleek packaging. You’ll notice that there’s actually an indentation. That’s because the vacuum packaging keeps them separated. So you can cut down with scissors, if you only want one. Or you can rip open one, if that’s all you need. You’ll have a second one on hand! Excuse the pun.
When you rip it open, you’ll notice that there’s no particulates coming out, it’s not making a mess. That is perfect if you don’t want a mess in your gloves or your pockets.
And there’s no smell, which is great if you don’t want your pockets and gloves to smell.

Another great model is HotHands hand warmers.
When you’re ready to use these American-made hand warmers, be sure to follow all the instructions and warnings you’ll find on the back of the package.
Don’t remove the pouch from the protective packaging until you’re ready to use your HotHands.
When you remove the inside pouch from the protective packaging and give it a little bit of a shake, this will start the chemical reaction that causes it to heat up.
Don’t open this pouch, it contains iron powder, water, salt, activated charcoal and vermiculite. You want to give it 15 to 30 minutes for the hand warmer to reach its maximum temperature when it’s out of the packaging.
Put the hand warmer inside of a pocket or a glove to maximize heat efficiency. If the heat level starts to go down, just reexpose your warmer to the air and shake or knead the content just a little bit.
When you finish using it, just toss it into the nearest garbage. With its all-natural ingredients, you will not harm the environment.
Remember HotHands hand warmers are only air activated. They react to oxygen alone but if you have not used them for full 10 hours, there’s a way you can extend their life just a little bit.
Take any resealable plastic bag and place your HotHands inside of it and remove as much oxygen as you can. Then seal the bag. This will suspend the chemical reaction that causes it to heat up temporarily. When you’re ready to use it again, hours or even days later, all you have to do is open the bag, take the pouch out and knead the content. This will start up the heating reaction again.
