    Scott,i didnt know zippo made a hand warmer. I had a Jone_ hand warmer in my younger days ,It worked great for about 8-10 hrs.And there was no smell.

    I've been thinking about looking for a gas one. The fluid ones are bound to have a smell. and not just when burning....Anymore I'd rather smell like lighter fluid that freeze my fingers off. I'll hint around for x-mas......lol

    Use the Hot Hands. Can be found about anywhere. No fuel just the air starts them heating. Pack of 6 at allly World for $1.97. Will last 10 hrs, with no problem.

    Hey thanks J. C. i have not heard of hot hands. I am going to pick some up to leave in my truck and put a couple in my pack. You never know when they may come in handy, and affordable. Thanks!

    Thanks J.C. I picked up the hot hands, had to go to w-mart anyway. Now i have them. They will have good bargaining power fishing on a boat on overnighters. Who knows what i can trade for when it is freezing1

    I just wanted you to know they make a battery operated set of hand warmers, maybe you want to give them a try. Check out BASS PRO SHOPS
