I have 2 cheap ones. They work great and mine last about 8 hours on a fill. Heat up a sleeping bag nicely and great for keeping the hands and feet (if needed) warm. a large bottle of lighter fluid lasts awhile depending on how much you use it. light weight and don't take up much room.

I work with a guy who uses it, he seems to swear by them. He put them in a specific spot by a major artery or vein or something to help facilitate the spread of heat. I've thought about buying one of those, ore one of those Milwaukee battery power jackets.

Huh never thought about them. I have had a couple of near bouts with frostbite on fingers (riding winter - and taking way too warm gloves - ones I should not wear till <20F - lobster claw - and take on and off sweating hands and heading back out to ride more with moist gloves on - that sucked - hurt) so I get hurt bad quickly out there in the winter riding - need heat immediately. Will have to look into these. :)

Used them all the time as a kid have not seen any in stores for years except the fuel rod burning ones. The lighter fluid ones are exceptionally practical, reliable and efficient. Get a half dozen if you can because when it gets cold they are a lifesaver and trade barter better than gold.

I like em'. I have one similar but not sure of the brand name but it definitely gets really warm, almost too warm!

I had one it lasted 2 months using it daily the replacement part is almost the cost of the thing. And even though it uses little lighter fuel gets pricey and they keep it behind counters here so all impossible to steal. I got some gloves. But I really liked it while it worked, they're neat

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

You'll need a Tor browser to view his blog, though. I won't link it here because it's not a regular link, and I'm not sure if that's okay on here.
