Yay! I always look forward to this thread. Here are some of my go to gifts:

  • S'well water bottles or tumblers. I know they're overpriced BUT they do keep my water ice cold all day and I think the new tumblers and travellers are really cute.
  • Zippo hand warmers. I live in Ottawa so these really help for when I'm at the dog park or whatever, I have two that I keep in my coat pockets to keep my hands warm.
  • Baggu shopping bags. I have like 6 of these and always get complimented on the cute patterns. They make grocery shopping a bit more fun.
  • Fun socks. I can't be the only person who loves goofy socks right?
  • Ugg Slippers. So comfortable and have lasted me years.
  • Fossil Hybrid Watch. I’ve wanted something like this for a while but just found out they existed. It has all the features of a smart watch but with just a normal watch face.
  • Roots sweatpants and hoodies. Really good quality sweats and they last forever.

    I'll add more as I think of them!

Reusable Zippo hand warmers for cold nights/mornings and those compressed towel coins to wipe your face/ass/tears are life savers in the field.

u/Bolinas99 · 21 pointsr/Seahawks

Was at Green Bay two seasons ago when we were last in the playoffs.

It's likely to get insanely cold there, so don't just layer up get hand warmers, foot warmers (you can buy both at any local Walmart in Minny), wear at least 4-5 layers with several being fleece, including thermal socks, long thermal underwear, and waterproof shoes. It was -30 and we barely survived it in GB; not sure if it'll be as bad in MN for you.

Doubt you'll have any problem beating them btw.

Wish I could buy the tix from you man; how much do you want for them?

u/corgibutt19 · 21 pointsr/Equestrian

Merino wool socks (Darn Tough or Farm to Feet are my go to) and the Noble Outfitters "Cold Front" muck boots. I love these boots, they're incredibly comfortable all year round and I've ridden in them hundreds of times as well. I've heard good things about the "Original Muck Boot Company" muck boots as well and I know they have an insulated variety. Basically, muck boots that neoprene based rather than just lined rubber will be way, way warmer. They have not failed me. Plus, if I'm teaching or out for more than a couple hours, I'll use the stick on toe warmers which really are lifesavers. Big bonus tip: putting on extra socks/etc. and cramming your feet into boots is a bad idea. Insulation works by trapping warm air, so you need some space for it to work. You will be infinitely warmer in one pair of socks that fit well into your boots than in two pairs that are crammed in. Some kids would wear plastic bags or bread bags over their socks, which works great but they don't breathe and once you're feet are sweaty, you're screwed.

For the rest of your body, base layers are fantastic. They come in many varieties, from Walmart dirt cheap to nice merino wool (my personal favorites, but expensive and I only invested after using them for hiking a lot). The cost doesn't matter as much, as the goal is to get sweat away from your skin to keep you toasty, but in general, stay the f*** away from cotton for socks or base layers. The instant it is wet from sweat or something else, it will suck your body heat away and it doesn't dry out. Synthetic or wool is your best bet for anything against your skin. Layers, layers. I wear my base layers (top and bottom), a pair of Kerrits winter breeches (the best I've found, one pair has lasted me two winters so far, too), a fleece athletic top of some kind (love Avalanche gear), a down vest, and then my trusty, rusty Mountain Horse winter jacket. Gloves are weird in a barn -- I've had my best success with a thin water repellent glove with good grip on the fingers and palm that I can stuff into bigger mittens after using my hands (usually complete with hand warmers). Anything thicker and I am taking them off so often to do things in the barn that it doesn't matter if I have gloves on or not, although Heritage makes an "Extreme" winter riding glove that I adore, each pair has lasted me at least three winters of constant use and are impressively mobile for their bulkiness and okay-ish to ride in.

And for when you're back, hot chocolate with whiskey/rum enjoyed in a shower really will warm you right back up. Start the shower just lukewarm or your feet/legs/hands will feel like they're on fire.

u/Wasteland_Mohawk · 18 pointsr/LifeProTips

I seem to suffer from cold hands a lot, so here's a few tips which may be obvious but are worth mentioning:

  • When your body gets cold it focuses on keeping warm blood to the core, drawing heat from the extremities. If you are cold your hands and feet will feel the effects first. Clothing traps warm air produced by your body and will help prevent your overall body temperature from dropping, so layer up properly to stop heat loss in your hands.

  • One of the better places to warm up your hands a little is under your armpits. You can do this without removing clothing/putting cold hands on skin which is an advantage.

  • Hold a hot drink in your hands. The liquid and the heated mug will warm you up.

  • You can also hold a loose fist and blow warm air into your hand to help a little. Obviously placing your hands near a fire or radiator will help to. I've heard that rubbing your hands together does not nothing but generate friction on the surface of the skin. Straightening and closing your hands in rapid succession is supposed to be more effective as it increases blood flow.

  • Wearing layered clothing but still cold? Do some push ups/burpees/run around etc to build up and trap more body heat between the layers.

  • You could consider using artificial means of generating heat such as hand warmers or heated gloves.

Requesting not for myself but for a small unit of 20 Marines currently in the Middle East in an area that has no power or heat; there are no working showers or toilets. PX is not at this site, nor will one come. They are using bottled water for hygiene and also for wag bags; burn barrels are used for waste disposal.

They have requested Under Armour cushioned Cold Gear boot socks

and hand warmers

They are living in unheated tents currently and the weather has dropped below 30 degrees.

If you would like to help, please let me know, and I can share their info with you for authenticity. I don't feel comfortable posting it on Reddit for a matter of security on their behalf.

Use a carrot as a stylus. Sounds stupid, but it works on touch screens.

Also disposable pocket hand warmers.

u/PrincessAnika · 8 pointsr/TheMassive

Stock up now, you'll want them on the 21st

I already have my ticket, but I'm hoping that OSU will do $10 tickets again to drag some friends along.

u/0x18 · 7 pointsr/CampingGear

Snowboard clothing is overkill unless you plan on staying through a winter storm. Just remember: cotton kills and wool is your friend. If nothing else get yourself a pack of wool socks and some wool underwear and then wear your normal clothes over those. The coldest I've seen Yosemite get to (in the last ~7 years of visiting every winter) was about 30F in the day and ~0-10F at night (really easy to manage). A good wool hat also helps for staying warm at night.

I'm jealous; I just moved from SLO to Oregon and won't be able to do my normal yearly winter Yosemite trip :( I'll miss wandering around in a kilt and tshirt when it's 30F and making everybody think I'm insane, but I can give some misc advice on Yosemite winter camping:

  • Bring snow chains appropriate for your car. Even if the road is clear up into the park it's not guaranteed to be de-iced the entire stretch into the valley, and for most of winter the park rangers will deny you entry if you say you don't have chains even if the road is clear. There's stores not far out of the park that sell them but they're far more expensive than your local car parts store.
  • Use the bear boxes for all food, deodorant, hair spray, tooth paste, and anything with a scent you could imagine a pet animal trying to consume against all logic because the bears, coyotes, and racoons will try and are much larger and smarter (and I have watched them all try).
  • Last time I was there sleeping in your vehicle was verboten. I'm not sure on the exact reason why, but I think it's because bears are known to break into (and ruin in the process) cars while looking for food. You're safer outside the car than in it.
  • Good sleeping bags are great but don't forget to put an insulating layer between yourself and the ground. Air mattresses are okay but suck for temperature control; one of those thin roll-out insulating pads are seemingly worthless but great for staying warm through the night.
  • For $25 you can get 40 chemical handwarmers -- activate two or three (or four if you're cold) at night and toss them into the bottom of your sleeping bag to stay warm at night. Wear a shirt with chest pockets and put another two there, then get a wool beanie and slip another one between it and your head (if there's a blizzard...)
  • Don't go to bed wearing wet (including sweat) clothes! It will cool through the night and wisk away your body heat. Before going to bed change into a fresh suit of dry clothing.
u/OriginalSyn · 7 pointsr/Calgary

Just be aware when you're shopping, if you ask a Canadian for recommendations you're going to get stuff that is much lighter than you will probably want to get. Up to -10C many of us consider this light winter wear weather, but you will probably be wanting full on baselayer, gloves, boots and heavy jacket.

Calgary winters are fairly mild (averaging lows of -10 to -15C), but they come with wild swings due to our proximity to the mountains, you might go to work and it's -20C and when you leave its +10C so be prepared with layers as other have mentioned.

In the middle of Jan/Feb it's going to get real cold, often reaching -30C to -40C for a few days and a couple weeks below -20C. Be prepared for these days, if you have a vehicle make sure to plug it in (all vehicles sold in Canada have a block heater installed) if you take transit make sure to get some hand and feet warmers (like this). Wind chill is no joke it's not usually is listed as a "feels like" when looking at forecasts, if you're outside a lot pay attention to that number.

Also if you have a vehicle and street park at home or work make sure pay attention if you're in a snow route, they will ticket you if you're parked there during/after heavy snow fall.

u/acisnot · 7 pointsr/SaltLakeCity

Until you acclimate, try putting some [toe warmers] ( on top of your toes to keep you warm. CVS, Walgreens, Costco, REI, Scheels - they all carry some brand variation of the one I linked.

Also +1 for one pair of wool socks (I don't double layers on my feet until single digits.)

and +1 for a good pair of Sorels. My husband's are going on 20 years old and just as good as new. Mine are almost 10 years old and I love them.

u/queeraspie · 7 pointsr/disability

Can you feel your feet and get to them relatively quickly if the need arises? If so, these are awesome. I've never used them in my boots, but I use them in my gloves.

For a reusable option, these are good too, but they're a bit big for putting in boots.

u/[deleted] · 7 pointsr/Patriots

To cold weather games, i wear what i usually wear when i go skiing. Get a thermal undershirt, thermal leggings, some nice thick pants (jeans are ok), a t shirt, eitehr a sweater or a northface fleece, then a windbreaker jacket. I then put on a ski neck brace (the fleece kind that can go over the mouth) some backward ear muffs and a hat. Finish it off with gloves and some nice thick wool socks and you'll be set. You should also still be able to move around.

For heat warmers, get these. You can literally pick them up almost anywhere; warl mart, target, CVS, most convenience stores etc. You throw it in your gloves and break up and youll be warm. I use them a lot when i go skiing and they're amazing.

u/SpacemanSpiff23 · 7 pointsr/discgolf
  • Keep one of these in your pocket, and always keep your hand in your pocket with it.

  • Or get the much more bad ass Zippo version. It's more expensive up front, but after the initial purchase, the price drops dramatically. This are also warmer than a Hot Hands.

  • There is a guy around here that makes this Mitten thing that is open on one end. It's hard to explain. It is a sheep skin mitten with an open end. You wear it on your left hand all the time, and when you are walking or standing around, you put your right hand in the front of it to warm it up. Kind of like a quarter back hand warmer, except you wear it on your left hand. The best part is that is has a thumb, so you can still use your left hand to pick up your bag or hold a disc. I have seen them sold at D-Town Disc Golf in Doylestown PA, and I think he sells them out of his trunk at tournaments, but I don't know if he has an online store or anything.
u/lyinTrump · 7 pointsr/chicago

In all seriousness though if you haven't tried handwarmers and you have a problem with your hands getting too cold, give them a try.

Amazon link - you can get them at many retail stores in the area, usually in the camping section

u/GIS-Rockstar · 6 pointsr/duluth

Duluth is an absolute mecca for outdoor winter sports. Gear up properly and you'll love your life in the 8 months of the Northland's winter!

If you're getting outside a lot in Eau Claire, you'll do fine in Duluth. If you plan on spending significantly more time outdoors in Duluth, then that's another story. Depending on where you live in town, you'll have different levels of need for snow tires; either way I'd strongly recommend them. PM me - I'm selling a set of snow tires in great condition over on the Online Rummage Sale for Duluth/Superior facebook group.

  • Thermal regulation is the name of the game. Not enough protection and you're cold. Once you're cold, you're done. Too many layers and you start to sweat. If you can't wick the sweat away or stop overheating, you're done

  • Cotton kills. You need 100% wool/poly/synthetic layers. Cotton absorbs moisture from your sweat, then freezes or just becomes a frigid sopping sponge against your skin

  • Layer selection is important. Something like a North Face Thermoball is great as a mid-layer under a parka for those insanely cold days. I have a SmartWool Marino wool base layer that was expensive but it was essential for keeping me warm and dry. Otherwise, synthetic long sleeve Under Armor kinds of shirts are perfect base layers.

  • Jeans are great at breaking wind and worked pretty well for me as a mid-layer. I usually just used synthetic long-johns to take care of wicking water from my skin. Roll both legs of the jeans up your shin to make room for boots and to keep the bottoms away from the snow or they will just get sopping wet. It's added warmth for your shins too. I'd finish off with a pair of snow pants that can go on and off easily

  • I used solid boots that were comfortable and insulated, with 1-2 pairs of various smartwool/puffy wool socks. Don't over-do it with socks. If your boot is too tight, it'll cut circulation to your toes and then you'll be cold. That's a delicate balance between "it's literally too damn cold out" and "I don't have circulation and I feel like it's too damn cold out."

  • A solid parka that goes below your butt is ideal. I got my North Face parka for around $300 and it was an excellent investment

  • Consider a shell that can break the wind. If you're hiking in Lester/Chester/Munger/etc. it won't be too windy; and if you're geared up properly those super cold temps are really a cake walk

  • Ice chains were important for my wife and myself. ICEtrekkers' Diamond Grip were my favorite. They really bite into glare ice where as coiled wire like basic Yak Trax were more slippery

  • I have a stack of the cheapest bandannas I could find in every color and pattern available. They're usually on sale for a buck each. The problem is that they're cotton, so my breath would condense on them quickly and they would freeze solid within 10-15 minutes, but the point is to keep the wind off of your mouth and cheeks. Even when frozen, they worked very well, and at 32° it was easily 30-50° warmer than the ambient air temps! I usually had 2-3 on me at all times for face protection and to wipe my nose/forehead (in case I started sweating) and I was very happy with them considering how cheap they were. Wash them once or twice before you use them to soften them up. I'd be interested in seeing other options for face covering.

  • Nothing beats a nice long wool knit scarf. Wrap it straight around your face and lay the tails flat against your chest or back for another insulating layer, or tie it in various ways for style and function around town

  • Sunglasses are a must to keep sleet and ice out of my eyes. Consider a set of very lightly tinted shades for evening/dark walking. There was nothing worse than hiking at night when it was sleeting. I've been told snowboarding goggles were lame, but ya know, Lake Superior is fierce before it freezes over. Ha. I would snowbaord all the time with amber tinted wrap-around shades that were snug to my head, and I'd hike with light Wayfarer-style frames

  • Finally, gloves are a real mystery to me. I'm not down with leather/animal skin, but it may be the only option to cut wind, and insulate the most efficiently. I usually used a thin woven wool base layer to wick sweat, a medium sized glove liner that usually comes with a decent set of gloves, and the thickest, heartiest, most beefy damn glove you can find. Pro tip: Make sure ALL gloves work with smartphones (capacitive touch). Never take a glove off to do something because you will never regain that heat without going inside

  • Just get a case of hand warmers. They're good in your gloves; next to your Achilles tendon in your boots; and against your camera or smartphone to keep those batteries running longer

    FIY: I spent 3 years in Duluth as a Floridian with no experience with real winter. Gear up properly and you'll be outside all winter long! It's expensive, but it's TOTALLY worth the investment. Otherwise you'll be cold and miserable; and that is one hella long-ass winter.
u/Turbo_Dan · 6 pointsr/CampingGear

Old school hand warmer. You can still buy them and their solid fuel sticks. Celsius Solid Fuel Hand Warmer

u/theworsttasteinmusic · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

A Peacock Handwarmer. Been using it for two years now, absolutely worth the money. It's great for chores around our farm, as well as taking to the shooting range, fishing, sporting events. I use it a lot. I bought a 32 ounce can of VM&P naphtha for like $10 when I got it and have barely made a dent in it. It's very economical.

u/littlebells8787 · 6 pointsr/infertility
  • For PIO - I got these little hand warmers. Then when I don't have time to sit on a hot pack after the PIO in the morning I can pop one of these in my pocket and go on my way. It also worries me less post-transfer when I don't want to heat up too much.

  • I started wearing cloth pads/liners. My periods have always been super light so I generally can't wear tampons. During my stim cycles I had a lot of cervical mucus and wearing pantyliner all of the time was so uncomfortable. These are much better!! I haven't done suppositories, but I assume that they would be better for that as well. I got this idea from someone on this board and thought it was dumb but was willing to try it anyway. They are amazing!

  • Arnica for bruises, especially the ones I get from repeat blood draws. It really helps the bruising to dissipate - I always get the blood draw from the same place and it really starts to hurt.

  • I paid the extra $2.99 or whatever it is a month to have Visual Voice Mail on my cell phone. I don't have a job where I can answer my phone whenever the clinic calls and it stresses me out to not be able to talk to them or listen to the voice mail. But with the VVM I can read the message and get the gist of what's going on. It's not perfect (it doesn't get my doc's name right or 'blastocyst'...a few other things), but it's good enough. At least then I know right away whether things are OK or if there's a problem.

  • I bake cookies for my clinic. I go to a satellite clinic, and on the last day that I see my RE before retrieval/transfer I bring her a plate of homemade cookies, and then I bring a plate on retrieval/transfer day to the main clinic. I find that a) it's good to feed the people who stick you with things and b) they remember it. I only see those nurses at the main clinic for procedures but they know my name and go out of their way to help out...which ended up being super important on my 4th retrieval. It's a little thing, but they all really appreciate it. Apparently this isn't super common, and I think it should be...they do so much, they can have cookies. You are all welcome to this hack as long as you don't see MY RE at MY clinic...that's my thing and she knows it!

For feet I have these Smoko USB Foot Warmer

For hands maybe this would help you: Smoko Toast USB Handwarmers

Mittens are typically warmer than gloves.

u/IPlayTheInBedGame · 5 pointsr/okeechobeemusicfest

Replying to my own comment with some purchasing recommendations:

2. Next level folding chair. The locking feature is sick, most comfortable camp chair I've owned.

My goto folding table. I've got a bigger 8 foot one if I'm camping with a big group but this small one is perfect for 1-4 people.

3. Highly recommend this charger. Will charge a typical iPhone like 5 times and has QC 3.0 built in (quick charge, which is a nice feature at a festival). Currently on sale for $40 if you clip the coupon, I've seen it as low as $30, they'll probably go on sale for black Friday and Christmas too.

5. Bring a box of these babies and if it gets cold, you've suddenly made like 40 friends.

6. Something like this is a good choice for makeup. In case you have to go back to camp and freshen up, the light is a nice touch.

u/PileOfCardigans · 5 pointsr/xxfitness

They make reusable hand warmers and they're fricking amazing!! They absolutely work, I was so skeptical but they're great. HotSnapZ Hand Warmers Reusable Round & Pocket Warmers

u/bjornkeizers · 5 pointsr/EDC

You might want to consider other options as well, like the reusable ones that have a fluid inside and a little activator. You 'snap' a little disk inside it and they give off about two hours of heat. You reuse them by boiling them back to a liquid state.

Ugh I know your pain, I'm 5'3" so getting a good spot for GA shows is always a major operation. With the right strategy you should definitely get there though, out of the ~70 shows I've seen I've only missed being on the rail three or four times.

You're on the right track getting there as early as possible, I'm not sure how big that venue is but ~9:30 should be early enough to give you a good chance of being at the front of the queue. Maybe not first in line, but close enough.

Re: the cold, you might want to pick up some of these chemical hand warmers. I stuffed a couple of them in my coat when I queued all day to see Jack White in January 2015, they pretty much kept me from freezing to death.

One of the best things about queuing for hours before a show is making friends with other cool people. When doors open go right into the performance space & grab a spot near those people, usually they'll be nice enough to hold your spot while you run to the bathroom, hit the merch stand etc. Even still I'd recommend skipping the coat check if possible, again I don't know that specific venue but in my experience those things are always a clusterfuck & major time sinks, the longer you're away from your spot the higher the chance some dickhead will muscle their way in. Besides, if you get a spot on the rail you can just put your coat on the floor in front of you.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, good luck!

u/kono_hito_wa · 5 pointsr/climbing

Hand Warmers: You can go with lighter fluid powered or rechargeable; whichever style you pick really depends on him. I personally would like the Zippo but I don't mind the muss with the fluid - as a downside, it requires he also carry a lighter. If you do go the Zippo route, don't forget to buy some lighter fluid for it and a lighter if he doesn't already have one.

u/mahervelous22 · 5 pointsr/financialindependence

Great work. It was -10 F (-23 C) here in Minneapolis this morning and I still biked. For extra warmth in emergencies, you can get chemical (reusable or disposable) warmers which can easily slip into pockets.

Something like this. They've saved my hands a few times. Maybe they can slip into your back pockets?

u/dmoney247 · 4 pointsr/aves

Buy some hot hands they work miracles. I remember someone last year gave me one for my wife and I definitely made the cold bearable and they're pretty cheap for big pack maybe you can pass them out like I will be doing!!
HotHands Hand Warmers 40 Pair Value Pack

u/Finnrick · 4 pointsr/FigureSkating

I use toe warmers inside my boots on particularly cold sessions.

I know a few people who love their boot gloves.

You might be surprised what a difference something like simple leg warmers can make.

If you can find zip off or snap off warmup pants, it’s an extra layer you can shed when you get warm or add when you get chilly. I wouldn’t wanna wear them the whole time, but they’re nice for beginning and end of the session

u/Hennyyy · 4 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

They work like ice packs (if you take reusable ones). You boil them to make them ready. In them there is a metallic disc which snaps when you apply pressure and starts the salt in the solution to fall out and generate heat. I just picked the first link you'll probably find better ones. Pardon my english, I'm just to tired atm to concentrate.

u/jordanlund · 4 pointsr/Portland

It's a shame they are going for disposable hand warmers. They could get a lot more than 40 uses out of the traditional kind, for less money

Here's how they work:


I might need to order them some of the metal ones.

Edit Tweeted at Zippo and Street Roots to see if I can buy them a case.

u/davidguydude · 3 pointsr/bengals

It will be cold as fuck, bundle up good and bring some of those hand warmers

he will likely catch a bit of harassment, but it shouldn't be all that bad.

parking will fill up early. it will be a lot of traffic, but imo its worse at the end of the game when leaving.

i dont know exactly where 333 is, but imo, this stadium has some of the best views from the upper levels compared to the old stadium especially.

who dey!

u/Neeko6ix · 3 pointsr/Overwatch

They're heat packs. Commonly used by skiers and snowboarders on very cold days. I got a real kick out of seeing them used in OWL. Voila

u/Sardonos · 3 pointsr/MTB

I bike year round in the prairies in Canada. I've tried different footwear and sock combos and nothing worked. I just have bad circulation I guess. The only thing that works for me is winter boots with these.

There are battery powered heated insoles that I will hopefully get for Christmas. That's the real solution I think.

Gloves don't cut it when it gets cold. I bought some good mitts for the cold days (my idea of cold is -25C/-13F). I haven't had problems with my hands getting cold.

I'm getting really excited to try my newish Farley in the snow. None yet though.

u/DoctFaustus · 3 pointsr/skiing

Next step from decent socks and boots, is a pair of these -
After that, it's on to electric heaters. Although I do have a pair of Boot Gloves that I find do help on very cold days.

u/EorEquis · 3 pointsr/astrophotography

A few of my own:

  • Expanding on /u/mc2222's field battery idea:

    A great many things...including things you might not otherwise think of...can be powered by a 12V DC power source, such as a car battery.

    Swing by Wal-Mart, and check out the Deep Cycle "marine" batteries. They're pretty low quality for marine needs, but they're perfect for ours. Even a mere 50AH of capacity will be PLENTY for what we do. You can pick one up for $40-$80 depending on size/capacity.

    Next, look for or build some sort of distribution panel/box/etc. It can be as fancy or plain as you want. All you're after is some central point so you can plug in all this stuff you never knew could be powered off 12V. Personally, I use this guy but there's lots of other methods of doing this.

    Now...there's all the obvious things you can power with it. Most motorized mounts, for example, plug right into the car lighter outlet. You can, of course, clip that connector and put some other connector (like the banana plugs my unit takes) on if you wish. But for these items, no further mods are necessary. Dew heaters and camera coolers are other common 12V devices.

    Now here's where we get cute...Got a DSLR? It probably has an AC Power Adapter available for it, right? Take a close look at the specs for'll see that while its INPUT is 120VAC (plugs into a wall) it's OUTPUT is plain ole DC...PROBABLY 7.2V or so (a 2 cell LiPo, for the record). Grab yourself a little adjustable step down gadget, cut the cable on the CAMERA side of the converter that's inline, and just use the handy battery adapter piece. Solder it up to the output side of your step down supply, solder up some wires on the input side, set it to 7.2 (or whatever) output, and poof...12V power for your camera. :)

    You'll find there's a zillion devices that "plug into the wall", but if you check their OUTPUT, it's 12V DC (or less)...and thus, you can use this method to power them in the field off your field battery. :)

  • Hand Warmers : Not only good for keeping hands toasty on cold imaging nights, but useful for keeping your guide scope or camera lens warmer to help ward off dew/frost.

  • HobbyPartz (among many others, but these guys are amongst the cheapest I've found) has these slick Red LED strips that can be powered by as little as 3V, or up to 12V. They use insanely low amounts of power, so even a small battery pack will power them all night.

    What good are they? Well...they're adhesive on the back, AND you can cut them to your desired length, and solder new lead wires onto each strip.'ve got night-vision safe lighting for your laptop, your telescope, your field table..whatever! They serve both to illuminate your work area, AND mark your equipment for others' safety.

Don't throw with gloves on. Put a nice warm insulated mitten (not a glove, mittens are FAR better for this) on your throwing hand. When it's time to throw, simply pull your throwing hand out of the mitten, throw, and then put your hand back in the mitten afterwards. If it's cold enough, stick one of these hand-warming packets inside your mitten and I guarantee that hand will be nice and toasty. Feel free to wear a glove on your non-throwing hand since you won't be constantly pulling that glove on and off. Why a mitten? Because they're just better insulated to start with, plus with a mitten you can ball your hand up inside the mitten to warm it faster. If you use a hand warmer packet inside the mitten you can grab onto it with your bare hand as well.

I played a round in the middle of Nebraska winter, when it was 18 degrees and windy, and my hand was actually so warm inside of the mitten with the warming packet that I had to pull it out occasionally even when I wasn't throwing just to keep it from sweating.

u/ProceduralChicken · 3 pointsr/deliveroos

The work ebbs and flows. You have to enjoy the job to make it worth it along with the pay. It varies area to area. But I could never rely on Deliveroo as my primary source of income. Even though it is very possible to make a killing.


As for punctures get some schwalbe marathon plus tires. I have never had a puncture with them and they will last 10,000km easily. They have paid for themselves over and over just through the time I would be wasting on the roadside repairing flats.


As for being wet and cold, invest in a decent breathable waterproof coat, waterproof shoes and gloves and your golden. Deliveroos own kit is shite. If you're desperate and get cold easily get some of these. I use them to warm my hands before I do rock climbing outdoors when its cold. They are a godsend.


As for them sneakingly adding a long ass drop to a double. You haven't got a lot of recourse. If your close to the restaurant you could take the food back, then call customer support. I wish they would stop doing it though :/

I hide from all cold like a total freak and tell everyone that I am "allergic to cold". But seriously...

I have a heated blanket in my bed.
I keep gloves in every jacket that I own just in case.
I buy hand and feet warmers ( and stash them everywhere.
I wear sheepskin booties when I'm in the house.
I wear UGGS (I hate the way they look, but they keep my feet warm).
Lots of hats and scarves.
I have a little heater on my desk at work.

I tried nifedipine, but I hate it. I have also tried viagra, but it gave me huge headaches.

Basically, I do my best to bundle myself up all the time even in summer.

u/cwcoleman · 3 pointsr/skiing

A few of my suggestions (I have no clue what the price range is):

  • Wool Buff - $30 - get a funky color, they are versitile in winter
  • Gloves Kinko work style - $25 or FlyLow John Henry - $30 - both quality, light gloves
  • Chap stick - $5 - a funky case or just fluff to add to your gift
  • Liquor mini bottles - $5 each - it gets cold out there
  • Clif Bars - $5 each - hippy hikers eat these up (literally)
  • Duracell USB battery pack - $11 - phone/camera batteries die fast in cold weather
  • HotHands warmers - $13 - I really don't like these things, but most people do. Zippo version is pimp

My recommendation is to be prepared for very cold weather during the game. December highs during sunlight hours might be in the 40/50s, but it will likely be colder by game time. Be prepared to wear multiple layers, have thick socks and gloves. I personally always have hand and foot warmers as well.

Thank you for doing this! The children and teachers of Oakland deserve so much better from the district. i know it's scary. Talk to your veteran teachers if you're feeling anxious since some of them may have been on strike before. I second going to the rallies! It'll inspire you. We did a lot of parent education before and after school to let them know why we were striking. It also helped build solidarity.

As a practical matter, (1) wear comfortable shoes since you'll be on your feet a lot; (2) bring snacks and water; and (3) get some hand warmers since you know how cold it is on February mornings.

There's usually a sweater or jacket or something in my office.

I keep a small throw blanket on the back of my office chair.

There's also a heating pad that I smash between a small pillow and my lower back. This helps a LOT.

And there's a tiny space heater on my desk that I aim at my hands.

I have Reynaud's, so whatever the AC is set on, it's too cold for me. So I also have "Reynaud's gloves" which are like Isotoner fingerless gloves. Keeps my paws warm so I can still feel my fingers and can still type. In googling for an image, I just discovered there's a whole bunch of new Reynaud's gloves, some of which are self heating. I'm going shopping!

I also use Hot Hands (tuck them inside my fingerless gloves) and Toasti Toes(stick 'em to my socks).

I'm considering bringing in wool socks and fluffy slippers for winter -- this is Florida, so I'll need them for maybe 8-10 weeks. LOL. I HATE being cold.

If you live somewhere where this is a risk, why not stock these in your car? Probably a safer alternative to a space heater that you could sleep soundly with.

> Like can they go on facebook in picks and bans or draw in paint?

I think I've seen some players play OSU! as a warm-up once or twice, but I'm not sure if it was during LCS. I assume they have limited access to internet and the computer's software though.

> Also what is that squishy thing in their hands all the time?

They use it to keep their hands warm. As /u/CFThirty mentions, they are called "HotHands".

> And are those face cameras always on? or just when broadcasting?

It's another assumption I make, but I think they're always on. The LCS producer will probably tell what images are showed on stream.

> Can they hear the crowd or announcers?

Sometimes, because it is very hard to cancel out all sounds. The huge black things on their ears are meant to keep out the noise though.

> Is it illegal to remove their headsets?

Yep, unless the game is on pause and the referee needs to ask the player something. In that case communication is just easier by removing the headset ;-)

I don't think it is necessary to give a gift card for a lowkey care package, but if you know they are struggling financially or they have a favorite grocery store or clothing shop then it sounds like a great idea. You can utilize things like Groupon, Amazon home services for cleaning and home repairs, BlueApron or equivalent food prep boxes. I have heard that many people like those type of subscription boxes.

My personal favorite care package goodies are shared below. I would wrap a pretty scarf around a small bundle of goodies. And to make it all pretty, I would pin artificial flowers and a thoughtful card to the front.

u/SkinII · 2 pointsr/cycling

They're expensive but I absolutely love my Lake winter boots. Got them used on eBay about 5 years ago for $180 in excellent condition. For gloves I use Pearl Izumi lobster gloves.

I've always had cold hands and feet and sometimes even the above isn't enough. When it's really cold I put Hot Hand hand warmers in my gloves, against the palm/base of fingers, and in my boots on top of my toes. They are very toasty.

Tip: The Hot Hands last quite a while and are still useable after a ride. They heat up with air contact so when I finish my ride I put the Hot Hands in a plastic bag and squeeze out as much air as possible. They can't stay in the bag forever but will stay in limbo for a few days. I've used one pair on three different rides. Another trick is that they get hotter the more you shake the package so the first time I only shake it a bit. That way I can be sure they'll be good for another ride.

Write yourself a reminder of how to start a fire with the items within your car:

How to start a fire with your car battery

You know, in case you do not have a cigarette lighter working in your car.

It is REALLY. IMPORTANT. To stay dry. Get a slicker for each member of your family, as well as sturdy, water proof foot gear. If you can get a combo snow coat/water proof whatchmacallit, that is perfect. I personally take all items, and vacuum seal them in ziplock Space bags (including first aid, flashlights, flares, everything, to ensure they are protected from moisture before being placed into the duffle bag)

Handwarmers. A buttload of handwarmers. The can last up to 10 hours!

first aid kits, -40 degree sleeping bags, solar rechargeable/hand cranking latterns/flashlights, a simple manual on field survival (scavenging for food, simple traps, signaling for help, a small sum of money in case you need to purchase gas/towing/food, flares, freeze dried, high calorie foods (nuts work amazing))

Water. I am a bit miffed at the person that said he does not store water, but carries a water filter. ALWAYS. CARRY. WATER. A 24 pack of water bottles in the trunk with the tire is good, or a few liter bottles with some air space for expansion. Having a water filter does nothing if you do not have a source for water, or the means to melt snow/ice. Get a water filter as something supplementary. Pack a cheap multi tool and a good knife as well.

A fire starter (flint) and some simple kindling(a sandwich baggie of cotton balls) added tip--coat your cotton balls partially in vaseline, it will increase the flammability of the cotton, and help repel water.

Something I also include, is a pair of foot long 2x4 pieces. I name them the 'clackers'. Smacking 2x4's together is akin to a gun shot, and will get the attention of someone if you do the typical SOS morse code pattern. They also scare away wildlife. Although I always travel armed.

A typical portable jump starting battery
You can often find these little systems with ports which can charge your phone.

A tarp or tent in case your car is compromised and cannot provide adequate shelter

Maps, both local and national (in case you travel) and a compass.

A simple dig out kit for getting your car free (shovel, kitty litter, or a tin can and candle trick, ropes, tire chains, etc)

You're in luck!

tight underwear or the boxer briefs that run down your legs 6-8 inches preventing anything from falling out. buy an extra pack of hand warmers read the instructions on how to get them to warm reliably. Either preheat the urineluck in a microwave with the cap off in ten second increments (two should be max needed) or set it in a ziplock bag in a cup under hot water for five minutes to raise it up to temp. I let mine stay above temp and then drop it down to the right temp just outside the test clinic (two heaters will do this well) remove one heat pad and head in. Before I drop it in their cup I make sure its below 100 (some can measure initial too hotness) but above 90. Having it not be warm enough is the big risk.

If you get screwed like that a last ditch effort is to rub your thumb on your jeans until its real hot and then touch the temp strip till it hits 96 or so (risky)

Get some of These, I use them during cold New England hunting trips and they keep my feet are warm all day in the woods. Stick them to your sock under your toes, the science is an oxidizer in them that generates hours of mild heat once exposed to air, done by opening the package. Carry a second packet with you and if the first one is losing it heat you can just swap them out during a break.

Those toe heaters work wonders. I used them during a CX race and they worked great - plus no covers to collect frozen mud / complicate clipping / unclipping.

u/yeoman221 · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Ok so if DC doesn't get a lot of snow, you might not need all these, but I went to all the trouble of typing it up so here you go.

Some tips I hope will help you: The most important parts of your body to keep warm are your head, hands and feet. Layer your torso all you want, but if those parts get cold, so will the rest of you. Get some of these for days when you might need to be outdoors longer than usual, and keep an extra set in a pocket in case of emergencies.

Spray waterproof Scotchgard (or something similar) on the outside of your coat, gloves, hat and boots. Even if they are “water resistant,” under the right conditions (sleet, heavy snow in temperatures at or just above freezing, or simply the melting of snow once you are indoors) these items can easily and quickly become waterlogged. This will also help prevent salt stains.

You should probably have a pair of actual rain boots (some folks call them galoshes) that come up to at least mid-shin and will still fit with thick, warm socks for days when it’s slushy but still cold.

Personally, I prefer a long coat that covers my knees because they get stiff and sore if they are cold, but that’s just me. You might only need a coat that covers your butt. I would definitely suggest making sure it’s at least pea coat length, if for no other reason than to avoid snow and wind.

u/phpdevster · 2 pointsr/telescopes
  1. An 8" dob is definitely a bit much for a 7 year-old, but as long as it's for both of you, it's a good purchase. The most complicated part of owning a dob is collimating the optics (just making sure they're all aligned properly). There are plenty of tutorials on how to do this online. It will take a tiny bit of practice, but once you do it a couple of times, it's easy.

  2. Get this eyepiece set. Don't bother with a barlow. The 9mm that comes with that set will replace the 9mm Plossl that comes with the telescope. It's much, much easier to look through and offers a wider field of view. That set is a good spread of focal lengths for that scope, and will compliment the 30mm nicely.

  3. Does that even matter? Yes. You will be fighting condensation on the finder scope like crazy. I recommend buying a pack of those chemical handwarmers and just strapping one to the underside of the viewfinder with an elastic band, and maybe also one to the eyepiece of the view finder as well. That will keep it above ambient and keep the condensation off it.

  4. Yes, several things to know:

  • Obviously, never ever point the thing at the sun unless you have a visual rated solar filter that sits over the FRONT of the scope. You cannot put a solar filter at the eyepiece, it must block the light before it enters the scope.

  • The biggest limiting factor to seeing lunar and planetary detail is the atmosphere. It bends and distorts light just like water in a swimming pool does when trying to view items on the bottom. Some nights are steady and planets are super crisp with tons of detail, other nights are abysmal and the planet looks like an amoeba. It takes patience and some luck to get a night of good atmospheric "seeing" as it's called.

  • You also need to make sure the telescope is thermally acclimated to ambient temperatures. If the mirror is warmer than the outside air temps for whatever reason (e.g. stored in a hot un-insulated shed all day), then the heat coming off the mirror will distort light on the way to the mirror, and again bouncing off of it. If you store the scope in a cool air conditioned space, when you bring it outside in the hot humid air, the mirrors will instantly fog up and the scope will be unusable.

  • It's best to view the planets when they are the highest in the sky. This is known as their transit time - when they cross the southern meridian in the sky. If you try to view them when they're low on the horizon, atmospheric seeing will be worse, and the atmosphere will act like a prism and badly scramble the light, obscuring fine details.

  • The full moon is the least interesting phase to view because lighting is very flat. Best to view near 1st or 3rd quarter so you can see the moon illuminated from the side, where you will see deep shadows on craters, mountain ranges etc.

  • If you buy the eyepiece set I linked to, the 9mm and the 6mm will be your planetary and lunar eyepieces. The 9mm is at the low-end range of planetary magnification and can be used when the atmosphere is very turbulent. The 6mm will be useful when the atmosphere is steady. Eventually you can get something between 3mm and 4mm for very high magnification, but it will only be useful on very rare nights unless you have particularly stable air.

  • I recommend getting the book Turn Left at Orion, which is a good guide to get familiar with the night sky and using the telescope.

I carry a wool blanket, a tarp, and either a space blanket "sleeping bag", or regular space blanket + duct tape.

I find that the blanket comes in handy all the time for padding fragile items in my car, and the tarp is great for transporting anything wet or dirty.

I'd strongly recommend either several chemical hand-warmers, or a couple of reusable handwarmers (i've had good luck with these) to actively raise your temperature when needed. Then, if you make sure to dress right and stay dry, you should be able to keep your skin at a good temperature.

If keeping your core temp high is particularly important, I'd suggest keeping a jet boil type stove (or any other tiny camping stove), a water bottle, and some hot chocolate or tea packets in the vehicle as well. Never use a stove like that in an enclosed space, of course, but there's nothing like a hot drink to warm you up fast from the inside.

u/msoxydone · 2 pointsr/opiates

Im sure any handwarmer will do but here is an example. You can also get the foot warmers which are nice because one side is sticky. When I did it I would get the urine right before I head to the test and then stick a handwarmer onto the bottle immediately to keep it warm. Im not a 100% sure about this but im guessing there is a range that the temperature needs to be, probably somewhere between 80-120 degrees Fahrenheit, I never had a problem with it being too warm but I did have a friend that was using the same method and his turned out too cold, I think its because he got the urine too early. The goal of the handwarmers is just to maintain the heat that is already there not actually warm the urine. Good luck, hope everything works out for you!

Your fingers are what you really want to be worried about.

My suggestion would be to have some hand warmers in your sporran, and possibly have a pair of fingerless gloves on, if it's within uniform regulation in your band.

By tunic, do you mean a doublet? Because those are quite warm. When you're playing your body warms you up in your core, so mostly you just need to be worried about your extremities - feet and hands mainly. Thermal socks can help under your hose.

Also if it's below freezing I'd avoid playing pipes entirely.

There is another sort of handwarmer that may work well, they are reusable, about the cost of 10 handwarmers. I'm not sure about their heat level, but I may buy some- if I do I will do a temperature vs time curve for you, compared to temperature vs time for the iron based ones!

I'm not trying to bump these people's sales up or anything like that- there are quite a few brands of the handwarmers that use sodium acetate.

Once again, thank you so much for your insight!

Hand warmers are great! HotHands hand warmers its probably to late to order them but you can find them at most camping out doors sports type stores.

Once I warmed up around mile 2 or 3 I tossed them near a water stop.

Boots: I have Raynauds so I have a lot of opinions about boots and here are all of my recommendations:

  • For walking around when it's cold and/or icy but not a lot of snow on the ground and you need to look vaguely professional: Blondo Varta These are insulated and extremely waterproof, like totally dry feet after walking an hour in the pouring rain. And they have enough treads on the bottom that they're not slippy. I wear them almost every day in the winter and am a huge fan

  • Taller and great (this is a link to one random pair but I think you can still find them somewhere else in more sizes): Ugg Evanna. After 2 years, these started occasionally leaking a little if I walk through actual puddles in them, but aside from that they're quite good.

  • For when it is fucking freezing and there are giant snowdrifts and you don't care if you feel like you're in a spacesuit as long as you're warm (sold out right now but they come back periodically): Carrabasset snowboots

    Face and head: I think the best is a knit hat with an inside fleecey part over your ears, like this. I wear glasses, so I usually don't cover my face because they fog up, but sometimes I use a buff.

    Warm underlayers: if you don't mind spending money, merino wool ones are lovely. They are $$ though so I mostly wear Uniqlo HEATTECH all over my whole body and would definitely recommend that.

    Also you didn't ask for this but Darn Tough socks are A+. And if your hands get cold, buy a giant box of hand warmers and keep them in your pockets.

*you're maxxed out & drained. Your attention is overloaded & it's shedding side jobs like socializing. We've all been there & feel for you, it's awful. If you're missing the extroverted you, put some social appointments on your list. If you're not up to it at all, don't worry your extra energy will eventually rebound.

*keep setting the timer on your phone eat. Lessening your physical weakness is a great thing! It might not feel like it's worth it to eat balanced meals now but it will pay off in a slow build to energy months from now. Eat vegetables! People w ADHD especially need to eat leafy greens for nutrition. And if you can't be interrupted long enough to chew, nuts are calorie-dense & have helped me stay fit

*I use handwarmers (for hunters?) from Zippo from Oct - April. They stay warm about 18 hours. I wrap one around each knee, where I get especially cold even with layers. I've heard that the new electric rechargeable handwarmers are also great. I also wear 2 layers at all times, top & bottom--heat tech from Uniqlo, Hot Chillys thermal underwear from the ski shop, or my favorite ultra-thin silk thermal bottoms from the LLBean sale. Why be cold?? There are work-arounds.

*that project is killing you, even if it's just murdering your subconscious with worry. Get your attention pumping on how to strategize starting on it. Bribes? 3-minute bursts? A different location? Figure out how to make you work & how to cope with yourself. There will be a lot of these killing projects in the future but you're going to get better at working around your strengths.

u/screennameoutoforder · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'm glad I don't face such extreme temps anymore, but when I did I found a Zippo Handwarmer to be a help.

Get the larger size. They're super finicky to get started until you get some practice; I use a Ronson Jetlite until the element is glowing. I also learned a trick - splash a bit of the fluid onto the element, then ignite that and keep it turning. Blow out the flame when the element is glowing red in a dark room.

It gets quite hot and then 'smolders' for many hours. It comes with a bag to limit air - less air means lower temperature but longer burn. I don't use the bag, just tuck it into an inside pocket, under my coat but over my sweater. You can use a couple, and there are plenty of sealable containers for taking along extra fuel.

They get much hotter than the trash disposable Grabber maxi pads, and you don't need to recharge them either. Mine have lasted me for several years.

This doesn't replace sealing around gloves and neck, etc. But it lets me get away with fewer layers.

Just one caveat - it's a flame. Small one, catalytic, relatively low temp, totally safe to keep in your pocket. But when I'm pumping gas or fixing a generator, I leave it a distance away. I don't feel like tempting fate or igniting vapors.

u/inquisitorthreefive · 2 pointsr/scleroderma

These right here are lifesavers. I'd recommend the 6 hour version. They last closer to 8 or 9. The 12s are the same way and last all day, but there's no way to turn them off short of putting them in a zip-lock bag and depriving them of oxygen.

Zippo Hand Warmers

u/Yeargdribble · 2 pointsr/piano

Keep your core warm and your extremities will be warmer. It sounds like you have that covered though. Doing some light cardio exercise can also help get the blood pumping a bit and make you feel a tad warmer.

Those are some ideas to keep the root problem away, but it's likely you might still have cold fingers. I tend to submerge my hands into a basin of hot water and stretch them around a bit and then dry them with a warm hair dryer when I find them getting overly cold during practice sessions.

I also have a pair of hand warmers I'll sometimes use for cold, outdoor gigs, but that's probably not necessary for your situation.

u/konidias · 2 pointsr/FortniteCompetitive

Buy bulk box of these... One works really well for an entire session of playing. My hands also get ice cold. I found keeping my feet warm tends to help with my hands too... but sometimes my hands are just cold all on their own.

I use the hand warmer whenever I'm not in the thick of things... like if I'm just auto running I'll grab the hand warmer for like 10-15 seconds and it helps.

u/dtotzz · 2 pointsr/iPhoneX

I’ve had a similar problem with my phone and digital camera and I like to hike in the winter.

Solution is to either keep the phone in an inside pocket close to your body so that it stays warm, or to carry an external battery pack against your body so that it stays warm and run a cord to your phone.

Personally I don’t have anything with a good internal pocket and I shed a lot of layers while hiking so I picked up one of these this winter and love it:
OCOOPA Rechargeable Hand Warmers, 5200mAh Portable USB Doule Side Quick Heating Electric Hand Warmer/Power Bank, Classic Black

Doesn’t have a ton of capacity to charge your phone but I got an easy 7-8 hours out of it on the lowest setting. You can either keep it on low and store your phone with it, or you can just turn it on to warm your phone when you want to use your phone.

The disposable handwarmers work great too, it depends how much use you’d get out of a reusable option.

I'm a college student, so I totally understand buying cheap stuff. Here are some of my personal finds.

I bought these cute rain boots for myself about a year ago, and they've held up well! They come in a lot of patterns; I have the argyle plaid just because I like plaid, but the polka dots are cute too. :)

I have this scarf in red. It's super warm and comes in multiple colors. :)

I'm pretty attached to my phone, so I have these gloves. I love the knitted pattern, and it's a must for me to still be able to do stuff on my phone while I have gloves on.

I have some heated purple slippers (battery operated) from Sears, and they're really nice since my floor is wood. I have my eye on these adorable slippers though because they're just so cute. I love food with cute faces on them. :D They're kinda pricy though.

Also, Hot Hands are a savior. I would buy them from Walmart or Target; it's cheaper, and you can get however many you want. These kept my hands warm when I was outside in freezing temperatures from midnight to 10 am!

u/jeifurie · 1 pointr/teslamotors

I bought a pack of handwarmers off amazon (~$25 for 40 pairs, but you can cut in half so its actually 80) and will keep them in the trunk. Hasn't gotten cold enough in Boston to need to use yet though. But, I think they would get warm enough to unfreeze the handles & trim areas w/o damaging anything.

I wore these when I was in Iceland in March 2016 (so. freaking. cold.) and they were great! I can't stand having my hands cold, so I bought some wool liners for the gloves and Hot Hands to stash in my jacket pockets too. Have fun in Iceland; it's an amazing place!

u/alohaepicure · 1 pointr/dji

I went to Iceland this past February and took my Mavic Pro. Some tips I have for you are:

  • Keep your batteries warm! The color temperature can really kill your battery life, or prevent the drone from turning on if the batteries are too cold. I put some of these hand warmers ( into a sock and placed them next to my batteries in my backpack. They did wonders to keep things just warm enough to maintain charge, but didn't make me worried at all that the heat would damage the batteries or anything else in the bag.
  • Be careful of the wind! The wind in Iceland can be super unpredictable, especially as you move over steep drops or cliffs. I saw someone lose their Phantom when they flew it up over a ledge (we were standing below a cliff). My best guess is the wind gust above the cliff was much stronger and took the drone in the opposite direction from where we were standing. He tried to throw it into sport mode (I think) and fly it back, but the wind was too strong up over the cliffside.
  • Be prepared to bring your drone back from flight at a moments notice. Again, the weather is unpredictable and can change in minutes. I arrived at a landmark and it was bright/sunny with barely a cloud in sight. I took the drone up and no joke, ten minutes later it was full on snowing with sleet and the entire sky above me was overcast. Just be aware and be ready to bring the drone back when things change. In Iceland they say if you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes. This is 100% true of my experience in the winter.
  • Be respectful to others. Icelanders are SUCH nice people. If there's a no drone sign I'd really encourage you to respectfully keep the drone in your bag and just enjoy the amazing scenery.

  • These giro winterproof shoe covers have been lifesavers when I want to wear normal shoes/non-boots. I just wear them with my gym shoes and platform pedals and they work fine. They're not waterproof, but they're water-resistant enough and warm. I've found they're good enough that my shoes keep totally dry in snowfall. Just don't try except them to stave off heavy rain
  • champion base layers from Target keep my legs just warm enough. I don't even wear the thermals, but I'm sure they'd be great
  • Topside's helmet light is bi-directional (front and back) and really bright with steady and blinking modes. I find it's handy to have a light this high up when visibility is tough in winter
  • Showerpass waterproof socks are fantastic if you think your shoes are going to get soaked. I've had days where my shoes are drenched from the rain but these keep my feet dry. The only downside is they get a bit clammy if your shoes are soaked

    I typically adjust my helmet so I can just put my hoodie or a normal winter hat under it, which keeps me pretty warm on my ears and head. Barring that, a balaclava is nice too

    I have yet to find gloves that are good enough to keep my hands from freezing so I often take the time at lights to rub my hands together. I really want to try out Bar Mitts or similar "pogies". I keep Hot Hands in my backpack in case of emergencies

    I've found that cheap light waterproof non-breathable jackets can be helpful because they're thin and really trap heat. Most rain shells are breathable so they don't suffocate you in warmer weather, but I've found that the crappy non-breathable ones are great for winter for that same reason. I can go with just a sweatshirt and one of those and I'm usually sweating by the end in freezing temps. The only problem is I have to keep moving. It's useless if my body's not doing work to keep the heat building up, which is problematic if you may get stuck somewhere remote.

    I want some clear glasses as well, for windy/snowy days when the precipitation stings my eyes. I think something like these would probably do the trick. REI sells, Tifosi, a brand of bike glasses, but I think these would be overkill for me

u/ArtieLange · 1 pointr/snowmobiling

Last winter was ridiculously cold so I tried to find the best gloves this year. I came to the conclusion that you need at least 2 pairs (maybe three) for the varying conditions.

For the super cold days I settled on Black Diamond Soloist finger gloves. I also bought a case Hot Hands for when the conditions change on the trail.

u/justnotthatcool · 1 pointr/Construction

I do construction in Michigan and feel like I need extra warmth for my hands. I use the nitrile or rubber coated gloves that are insolated for winter. Then wear a knit or cotton glove inside the insolated one. On really cold days i add the small hand warmers in between the glove layers in my palm. I can hammer, carry stuff and never be bothered by the handwarmers. I use one set of both kinds of gloves in the morning and then put on a dry set after lunch. I use these hand warmers....

Foot warmers and disposable. Thermal socks and/or good winter shoe liners or winter workboots.

You can also get heaters for the truck/car

Lacking all of those options, you may want to see a doctor about poor circulation or other, possible medical issues.

u/madsbrain · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Depende sa temperature. Kung naglalaro lang sa 0 C, yes. Otherwise, consider something yung may insulation.

However kung di ka naman masyado sa labas (and kung may car kayo), okay na siguro yun, just buy warm socks like yung Heat Holders or yung mga foot warmers which can provide heat up to 8 hours. Ang problem kasi with insulated boots is that it can be really warm pag nasa loob ka ng building, papawisan talaga paa mo, especially yung mga Sorel which are made for -20 C and below.

Though Timbs and Dr. Marten aren't really good at gripping slippery surfaces. For that, just buy cleats.

  1. Let your Mavic sit out in the cold (without a battery) for a few minutes (at least 5) before you pop in a warm battery and take off.

    This helps reduce condensation frost from forming in your barometer. The barometer is the most sensitive instrument in your Mavic to moisture.

  2. Slap Adhesive toe warmers on the back of your phone or tablet to extend its battery life in the cold. Something like this:

  3. The batteries warm themselves up in flight, but in extreme cold (-5 or colder) the same adhesive toe warmers could be used on the Mavic Battery. They don't add much weight. Disclaimer: I haven't tested this on the Mavic, but we've used this trick for years on DIY built drones with "naked lipos" (a lipo without a plastic case).

I am so bummed to hear you had such a lousy experience with your PTs. It makes me wonder if they had any experience with arthritis. :/
So no pools by you...what about just soaking in a tub for a bit with some epsom salt? I know it sounds hokey (and is totally something my grandparents used to do), but it's relieved some of the ache for me, especially during the wintertime. Another thought is heating pads and those shakey heater thingies? ([]st[p]cjcatfjvc00r2mvy6pklgx6ft[i]sYgGPh[d]D[z]m[t]w[r] - I shove these in my pockets to help with the ache.
One more suggestion and I promise I'll stop. I dropped 50 pounds about a year before I got my diagnosis, and after my diagnosis I really focused on strengthening my glutes and hamstrings (I worked with a trainer). That has also made a different for me in terms of pain - maybe something to look into?
It's badass that you got the weight off and have KEPT it off, despite dealing with freaking hip OA (seriously, aren't bone spurs the worst? nobody tells you your freaking HIP IS GOING TO GET STUCK with OA. UGH).

u/o_Oscar · 1 pointr/alaska

Gloves AND mittens you say? How about convertible mittens!? You can find them at winter/outdoor clothing stores.

Another thing to consider would be the insulation of the gloves. I have gloves with 40 gram "thinsulate" insulation and they work fine for me. If you get them with insulation, make sure they're "breathable" otherwise it's going to be difficult to get them dry. There is nothing more disgusting than putting on gloves that are completely wet. Ugh...

There are also those air activated hand warmer things. They might be overkill for 40F temperatures, but might be appropriate for -40F.

Glove liners could be useful as well.

Two tips that might work for your friends' problem:

  • Avoid putting on your gloves outside when your hands are already cold. Try to put them on before leaving your house or car, otherwise the gloves will be uncomfortable to wear and will take a while for them to warm your hands.

  • For the same reason, avoid leaving the gloves outside (e.g. leaving them in your car overnight).
u/sarcasmdetectorbroke · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

The hothands ended up burning me which sucked so I tried to put in a barrier(a paper towel). It was not strong enough because the heat is tight against your body. I only usually need heat the first few days of my period so I stopped using the hot hands but next month I'll try a stronger barrier for the heat. It's a less expensive solution to buying these every month for IBS and period pain. So I'm really going to try to make it work. I bought a 40 pack of hothands for $15 which is a pretty good deal considering how expensive thermacare is.

u/coredumperror · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Maybe pick up one of those reusable chemical hand warmers? Like this thing. You can use it to melt the ice on your door handles and windows, then boil it when you get back home to reactive the heating chemicals for the next day.

Gloves are amazing, but some people have trouble throwing with them on. I personally have a pair of underarmor gloves that have small grips on the fingertips that help a great deal. If that does not work, I would recommend having a stash of these: handy. Keeping one in a pocket, or tucked into your shorts and warming up your hands on those longer turnovers will help a great deal.

Other than that always make sure you got good rain gear and cold gear. Plus don't cheap out on your boots, wet & cold feet will make any shift miserable!

u/eatcherveggies · 1 pointr/whatisthisthing

Hard to tell by just looking at it. It's obviously been used so it looks sort of old. But they still make them and they haven't really visually changed over the years.

I had one of these when I was younger and it got that charred looking after a few uses. I wouldn't assume the one in the picture is ancient based on the condition.

u/CaucusInferredBulk · 1 pointr/AskNYC

If your hands get really cold I would recommend either the dachstein extreme mittens, or something from Ojbro Vantafabrik

Also, chemical hand warmers last too long for most uses, unless you are going to be outside for hours they are a waste of money. But the reusable gel handwarmers last 20-30 minutes, which is just right for commuting or shoveling, and can be recharged in a pot of boiling water (or even in a microwave)

This kind you stick in the microwave to warm up

This kind you just "recharge" in the microwave, but you can activate them at any time

u/VietOne · 1 pointr/PSVR

Fans that small are generally VERY LOUD because they have to spin at a much higher RPM to generate air flow. So while it may keep your PSVR from fogging up, you probably won't be able to keep the sound from leaking to your ears.

As someone who has been snowbaording for years, i solved the PSVR fogging up the same way I do for my snowboard goggles. Warm it up before I use it to equalize the temperature of the goggles and my head. I usually do this by placing it within my jacket before I start my first run and anytime I take them off. With the PSVR, I do something different but the concept is the same.

I kept the PSVR box since it was already lined with foam and helps to retain some heat.

With reusable hand warmers, I activate it, place it in the box on top of the PSVR HMD part and leave it for about 10 minutes. The hand warmer warms up with HMD where it's lightly warm but never hot since the warmers themselves never get hot enough to cause any pain anyway.

Never had fogging issues even here now in the PNW where it's getting a lot colder and more humid.

my first time out with a Polaroid it was around - 2 ish degrees C which indeed caused a green tint.

thought/idea, have not tried:
you could also get a bag and put a reusable hand warmer in there, you know the ones that you boil to restore. they don't cost much. they will hopefully work. I mean for a longer walk you'd need more than one so you could swap them as they go cold. this should keep your film packs warm when not in use.

I love being in Florida for the winter. But trust me, we have weather problems here during the summer. The last thing you want to do is hike around in the humidity for too long.

Have you tried using hand warmers that go in your gloves? They are often found on the counters at stores like Walmart and Walgreens. Also any sporting goods store carries them for hunters and other people who do activities outdoors. They are pretty cheap since they are disposable. I pick them up during our cold snaps to hand out to the homeless. The portable, non disposable was mentioned as well, and amazon has a ton of those. Here's the link to the disposable.

I swear by bentonite clay in a tub for 30 mins to soak. I use warm to hot water and afterwards you feel so refreshed. The clay helps with detoxing your body and the first few times your water will be black or purpleish. But after using it awhile it will only turn it light grey or alittle murky. The clay will clump up and i dont unclump it just stir it around the water. I run the water then put in clay once im in the water, swirl it around and then just close my eyes and relax.

Its like $10 for 2lbs and you only use 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time so it lasts a while. I started out every 3 days then when water stays grey i turned to once a week or when i start having pain/spasm/ feeling sick.

Hope this helps.

Oh and keep some hot hands on you they are great for when it gets freezing.

I actually use to have this happen to me at times. What I ended up doing was putting on a hoodie and putting the hood up over my headset.

Oddly enough, this never happens to me anymore, no matter the season.

u/Casoral · 1 pointr/Columbus

Hi! I don't know anything about cars, but I'm always cold! This is how I get through the winter:

For a coat, you'll want to get a down parka that at least covers your hips. Try on couple different lengths and see what you think is comfortable. My coat comes down to mid-thigh. You need to buy a coat with a hood.

For your hands, mittens are actually better than gloves if you have cold hands. Gloves separate your fingers, while mittens keep them together (sharing the warmth). I basically have 10 pairs of wristies, and wear them under mittens. When I need dexterity, I just take my mittens off and just wear the wristies. I would rather wear the wristies than wear gloves, if I was given the option. As far as mittens, I have several pairs. I have cute mittens that aren't that warm, but are good for going to work and back. And heavy-duty insulated dad-like mittens like these. You can also order a couple of these disposable hand warmers. A 30-pack will last you multiple winters. I put them in my wristies.

For your head, always have a hat or headband on when it's cold. My face gets *so cold*, so sometimes I wear a neck warmer. Skida makes neck warmers (and hats and headbands!) with super cute patterns, so you won't look like a serial killer.

For your feet, I wear darn tough socks, because merino wool is incredible. I wear them on hiking trips in the summer, and in the winter, they keep my feet really warm without being bulky (so I can still wear cute boots!). You can get them at places like REI, or online. Boots are super personal. I actually don't own a great pair of snow boots right now, because we don't typically get that much snow. I have hiking boots sort of like this that I wear when it's really snowy. But there are a ton of great options available. Honestly, I'd go somewhere like REI and try on a bunch to find what's comfortable. But you can probably make it through the winter without something super specialized.

Good luck!

u/postagestamp6 · 1 pointr/uofm

All of the suggestions so far are pretty spot-on. We've been having an unseasonably warm winter up until now but, knowing Michigan, that won't last long. The thermal or fleece-lined pants/leggings will be your best friend. You don't need to go crazy regarding the coat, since you will only be here for the Winter term and coats are all over the place when it comes to price (and since you can layer up underneath anything you do get). I'd recommend looking for something with a hood that comes past your face so it will block the wind - quite often the sub-zero winds are the worst part of the winter weather (at least imho).

It doesn't sound as if you'll be needing to do a lot of walking to get from your dorm to your classes so any decent, waterproof boot should be good. I lived a bit off campus and took the bus into downtown so there was quite a bit of walking. These hand & toe warmers were an absolute necessity for me. I'd keep them in my boots, pockets, and gloves. I'm not sure how I would've survived waiting outside for the bus without them.

That all being said, have fun in Michigan and go blue!

u/JeSuisUnAnanasYo · 1 pointr/motorcycles

How cold we talkin? I found that a base layer of Hotchillys helped me stay out in colder weather, and ride for much longer. I was previously only comfortable in mid-50s weather, now I'm fine in mid-40s. Below mid-40s I start needing heated gloves, and in the 30s I start needing a heated jacket liner and disposable toe warmers. Never ridden in below freezing weather, so can't help you there.

I should mention... what I do is mainly to maintain comfort, not survival/avoiding frostbite. I know I could technically tough it out and be out in colder weather with what I have, but I would be grumpy (and I have). One time it was so cold that my hands went completely numb yet felt like they were burning, and I had to pull over every 20 mins and use my Ducati's exhaust as a handwarmer just to physically continue. God that sucked.

Also, it sounds obvious, but the type of gear you need is not just dependent on the temperature outside, but also the wind, how fast you're riding, for how many hours you're out riding, and whether the sun is out or it's overcast/you're in shade. For me, going 45mph, for 45 min, in 45 degree weather was my limit before I started wishing I had heated gloves for comfort.

As for gear, a non-vented leather jacket with a thermal removable liner is actually weirdly insulating and kept me way warmer than I thought it would, but there's actual winter gear on Revzilla you should take a look at.

Edit: Oh, and definitely get a Balaclava! Loove this TurtleFur one.

I hope Reddit doesn't frag me for posting an Amazon link: link

I think I might buy the hoodie, and buy a cheaper jacket to cover it since I work in concrete.

Are you familiar with these hand warmers? They work pretty well, but I am not sure if they would be so practical while on top of a tower lol.

I totally had this problem after I lost weight, before I got pregnant. I got myself one of these battery hand warmers:

OCOOPA Rechargeable Hand Warmers

It is sooo soothing to turn this thing on and hold it, or stick it in a pocket, or when I'm really cold I tuck it into a scarf at the back of my neck and that seems to warm me up all over. And since it's battery powered you can carry it with you when you go outside.

Doesn't fix the problem but it makes it a little more bearable!

You can get them on Amazon, you can probably get some for cheaper, these are the just the first ones I saw. Sometimes they might have them at your local sports store (usually in the winter)

I would also throw in some hand warmers in cold climates.

I'm in Austin so it's not as cold but the few cold nights we get can really Suck since you don't have any exposure to come weather.

That's why when I know it's going to be cold at night. I bring a few extra hand warmers to pass around the bus stops that I know homeless people frequent.

For $20 you can get a nice box of 40.

The particular device in question is this. I know that USB C flashlights are the same way. They won't charge with USB C unless it's a C to A connection.

You can purchase these small heat packs that you shake and they warm up for about 30 min. Only downside is that while they are reusable, they have to be boiled each time after use.

Find a better brand than that but it’s to give you an idea.
