439Re: Hammock Camping Hand Warmers
- Feb 5, 2003I ended up using handwarmers when I used my hammock at the
then "record low" (for me) of 30 F. I had bought them on a whim at
the last minute when I stopped in a store for some food right before
getting to the trailhead. That night, shortly after getting in my
hammock, I felt my feet getting cold. I only had a 3/4 Ridgerest and
part of my body was going to be off it no matter what I did. I put
the hand warmer things in my socks and boy did they work. The advice
to use 2 pairs of sock and put them between them is good becasue
those suckers got too hot. Haveing never used hand warmers before I
was pretty surprised by how hot they got and even more so by how long
they continue to generate heat. 8 hours later they were still hot.
So, in my experience they do work. Although I now just carry two
pieces of sleeping pad so that all my body parts can be on them.
One of the hand warmer packs set itself off spontaneously in my pack
and I could feel it against my back, so guess you need to try to pack
them where they won't be squeezed.
