Grabber Toe Warmers
If you snowshoe, hike in the winter, or head to the mountains in the summertime, bring along toe and hand warmers. Skiers and snowboarders are likely already very familiar with the benefit of these little bundles of warmth.
Do your toes get cold when you’re out in the snow? How about on a cold night in the mountains? My toes AND hands are always cold, and the best way I’ve found to stay comfortable is to grab a few “Grabber” toe warmers (pun intended!) to take with me. All you have to do is shake them a bit, then slip them in your hiking boots or ski boots, and you’ll be a happy camper again.
Since women’s toes and hands are far more likely to be colder than men’s, even if the guys in your hiking or ski group are telling you that conditions won’t be that cold, bring these along. They are very small and lightweight, so easy to pack and carry. I also take them along for emergency purposes. When I’m on winter dayhike, a day on the slopes, or on a snowshoe trip, knowing that I have a few of these in my pack is re-assuring.
At night, I slip them in my down booties at the campsite, as well as into my gloves. The warmth lasts about 6 hours.
