Default warm hands without gloves?

http://www.popularmechanics.com/tech...arming-device/

We could use this for chasing those winter steelies.
Wonder if they are working on something for the fishfeet also?

Now we can tie an egg loop with .25# mono, in sub zero weather.
Never could before. Even in warm weather.

Worked fine for me.

Worked fine for me, too. Chrome on a laptop.


I need something. My hands are always freezing, no matter what. Even right now, in my house where it's 72 degrees.
The only thing that warms them up is exertion. Sometimes I work in a 34 degree cooler, which by my standards isn't that cold, and even with bulky ski gloves my hands get cold to the point of being painful.

It comes up and then in about 2 seconds I get a screen that says "This story is exclusive to Pop Mech Pro members". I don't know why. I guess I'll keep wearing gloves.

Sounds like it works great as long as you are carrying around a Tesla Car battery on your back

Sounds like from the article, that is the main problem at the moment.
But they are working around it.
When I googled it, there was more than one article.
Might see if I can post the link here if I can find it again.
Wonder why they don't just use those chemical hand warmers, wrapped around the forearm? Don't those last for several hours?
Never have used one, so don't know how effective they are.

I Chukar hunted in fairly cold weather and learned a little Vaseline goes a long way on ears, nose, cheeks and hands.



I was pheasant hunting in N.Dakota with a bunch of locals, snow on the ground, the usual stuff. I noticed after a while, I was the only one not wearing gloves. Years of Steelhead fishing kinda kept my hands in good shape for the cold.

Here's the answer to your cold hands. I haven't tried it but it sounds like the real deal. http://www.warmskin.net/Index.html

That's great for someone who isn't serious about fishing.
Meself, I wouldn't want that on my hands when I'm handling my terminal gear or bait.
But if I was into x-country skiing or winter hunting, it would be just the thing.
Just my
