The activity of day may keep you warm but night is chilly!

During the day, though it may get cold, you have some activity to keep you moving and generate body heat. You hike, you fish, you maintain camp, which requires a little elbow grease too. But when the sun sets and dinner is over, your campfire conversations finally snuffs out, you have nothing left to do to keep you warm.

If you’re armed with this essential cold weather camping accessory, your tent mates will be jealous for sure!  Your last step before zipping in for the night…. You’ve already layered up for bed, your extra sleeping is in place giving an extra barrier between you and the cold ground. You have thermal socks, underwear, and just about everything else. Now place your hand warmer down in the bottom of your sleeping bag and consider the shivers a thing of the past!
