As they’ll tell you in any cold climate, “there’s no such thing as bad temperature, just bad clothing.” This may be true, but the highest quality protective clothing may not always be available if you’re traveling on short notice, or it may not make sense to invest a fortune into items you’ll never use again if you’ll only be in a region for a short time. Enter HotHands.


You’ve likely seen these little orange packets on the counters of big box stores. Each contains a pair of single-use warmers activated by air exposure. As such, don’t open them until you’re nearly ready to use them, but do give them time to warm up. The longer they’re exposed to air, the hotter they’ll get. In 5 to 10 minutes, they’ll be warm enough for use in chilly temperatures. In 15 to 20, they’ll be ready to protect you from more severe climates.


HotHands produces both hand and toe warmers. Hand warmers are ideal for inside winter gloves or coat pockets. Toe warmers are applied to the ball of the foot by adhering to a sock, and thick socks work best for adhesion and for protecting your foot from getting too hot, because these ones are particularly powerful.


HotHands guarantee up to 10 hours of continuous heat from activation, but personal experience in challenging climates yielded more than 18 hours from some packets, far exceeding the guarantee.


From travel to extreme climates to fall and winter tailgating, HotHands hand and toe warmers always deliver, and are available in individual packets, multipacks and even by the case.
