Keeping hands and toes warm is definitely a challenge for me and maybe for you too. There are times when I’m sitting in my office at Zoom meetings and have a cup of hot tea because my fingers get chilly, but when I’m out hunting that’s a whole other story. While I’m hunting there are multiple ways I keep my fingers warm.
I sometimes carry a Zippo Bean, which is a device you can use to charge your phone or other devices, but it also heats up to keep you warm. Soccer moms, photographers and others may like this heating device too.
I always have hand warmers in my saddlebags, in my backpack, in my hunting vest and in other places.
I generally wear a thinner type women’s glove made by Sitka. These thin women gloves allow me to still use my fingers so that I can still tie knots, operate my gun, and other motor-functional skills.
When it gets really cold, I wear Thinsulate-type gloves, which are fleece lined and keep you pretty warm. You do have to take these thicker gloves off to perform any duties that require fine motor skills.
An outdoor photographer friend suggested a Tactility Liner inside of SHELL mittens or gloves by The Heat Company. I’ve ordered a set but have yet to use them and provide you with a review. If you also have a go-to system tell us about it in the comments below.
