Fuzzy mittens are a cute winter accessory, especially for those who live in tundra-like climates, but sometimes you need something with a little more oomph to keep your hands and fingers warm. That’s where the best hand warmers come into play.
“Hand warmers are a supplemental tool for comfort and can prevent frostbite in extremely cold conditions,” says Gracjan Poniatowski, an outdoors enthusiast. “However, they should be part of a broader strategy to stay warm, including proper clothing and staying active to maintain body heat.”
We’re not just talking about HotHands, though they’re still a great option for anyone who needs extra warmth while out in the cold. We’ve tested seven hand warmers over a month in chilly temperatures on hikes, everyday walks with the dogs and in the house on chilly days. We tested disposable and rechargeable hand warmers to see which ones heated up the quickest and provided the most hours of warmth. Here are the ones you should add to your cold-weather workwear.
