Anyone tried this thing out? It gets pretty good reviews, but probably puts off too much odor for deer hunting. I do like the idea of having a hand warmer that is not disposable.

I use a different brand (jon-e) that works the same way. These things get so hot you can't hold them outside of the felt bag. They really do put out the heat.

I looked into buying one a while back. Read some reviews complaining about how you have to refill it. Not user friendly. I might look into it again tho. I need something to keep warm !

My Dad had one of those exact ones he used back in the 70's and early 80's—that thing had a portal straight to hades!

I will add some input to the subject............. Being from the "great white north" we use these things all the time.

I have at least 10 of them(picked up a whole box full at a garage sale once) I use them pretty much the entire hunting season, usually I place one in my shirt pocket and one in my "hand muff tube" that hangs around my waist. I have had them still putting out heat after 8 hrs in the woods.

I will say there is a small amount of odor, but it has never stopped me from seeing/shooting dead. I have even placed a few drops of cover scent on the outer cover bag, worked similar to a thermocell.

I would highly recommend the product to someone suffering with cold hands/body in the stand.

I have four of these. The first time I used two of them and they were awesome. Haven't taken the other two out of the box. Can't get the original two to work again. How much fuel do I put in them. Didn't seem like I used that much the first time.

I pour some in, light it, blow out the flame and then nothing. What am I doing wrong. The element (cloth) and screen look fine.

I use at least an ounce or a little more, then let the warmer set for a few minutes to let the fluid soak into the wedding. It uses the fumes to stay burning.

I have had to hold a lighter on the catalyst for a short time on warmers that have not been used in a while, but never had one not light after a few tries.
