While an additional heat source may not be on your mind as we approach the first official day of summer, it’s never too soon to start planning for outdoor fall and winter activities. Wonder Warmers are a solid solution for instant, portable, and reusable warmers. We tried them out and found them to be perfect for hikers, campers, predawn fishers, or anyone looking to hit the slopes this winter (or now).

We’ve all tried various types of hand/foot warmers and while they are nice, they can be pricey for a one time use. Wonder Warmers can generate 130° of soothing warmth for up to 2 hours (depending on size of warmer and insulation). A quick snap of a metal disk embedded in the warmer is all you need to activate. Once your done simply drop the warmers in boiling water for 5-10 minutes and they recharge for the next use. From some of the happy users we spoke with, 100+ uses can be expected. Oh, and don’t worry, they are water proof, durable and light weight.

Wonder Warmers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes ranging from small 3″ squares to warmers large enough to cover your lower back or wrap around your neck and shoulders. Can’t think of when you’d need some quick portable heat? Here are a few suggestions. We’ve been carrying the medium hand warmers for a few weeks now and have been pleasantly surprised by how effective they’ve been at battling the cool, damp conditions during the front nine of our sunrise tee times. We can’t wait to see them in action as the season shifts this fall.
