Anyone have the zippo handwarmer? If so whats the good and bad on it.
I have one they are very nice and warm.. Downside is that they use alot of fuel but my opinion worth it. I have an older one so that's prob why the fuel goes so fast I imagine the new ones are more efficient.
Well about how long does the fuel last? I think zippo's site has an estimate, but that always varies from the real world.
I just ordered one on amazon for 12 bucks.
You didn't order one for me?
Sure you want the camo one like I got?
I'm kidding there, thanks though. A link though?
I have a really old one. It stays warm really nice, but it smells like lighter fluid. That's the only down side I can recall. Due to the flame, I would only use it while awake.
Best not rely on fuel to warm your hands. Dress warmly in layers, wear gloves. That sort of thing.
Mine is about 25yrs old and still works fine. It came with a red flannel bag to keep it from contacting and burning the skin which it will do if not carefull. I use mine every yr for ice fishing and usually put it on my backside. You need to get a belt several sizes larger than you usually wear but it is well worth it as it keeps the warmer in place and keeps you comfortable all day long.
Wait, you warm your butt with it? Well I guess it works. I've sat on hand warmers...
I have a pair of the old jon-e hand warmers. I know they are over 25 years old since I have not used them for that long. Still in the red bags. I have some insulated camo cushions that clip onto the back belt loop. They retain heat really well and no fuel required.
