Baby It’s Cold Outside, But You Can Stay Warm

It is that time of year that the weather is getting colder and as I sit here watching it rain for the eleventeenth straight hour, I was reminded I should find my hand and seat warmer before heading out to the game this weekend.
Yes, I love my hand and seat warmer products and the Thaw brand we have at Traveling Bags are some of the most popular for people looking for them this time of year.  Whether you are attending sporting events, hunting, or just want a warm touch on the way to work, hand and seat warmers are perfect for the cold weather that is here, and even colder weather still to come.

If you are not familiar with these types of products here are some great reasons to consider them for yourself or someone you know who spends time outdoors.

Comfort: Sporting events often involve sitting for long periods, and cold stadium seats can be uncomfortable. Thaw Seat Warmers provide a more comfortable seating experience, helping you stay warm and enjoy the event without discomfort. The Thaw seat warmer works up to 5 hours even on the highest setting, more if you turn it down, and with an extra battery and a quick swap out, you are good to keep enjoying the outdoors.

Extended Enjoyment: Cold weather can make it difficult to endure long games, and events, or sitting that extra hour in the deer stand. Hand warmers and seat warmers can help extend the amount of time you can comfortably stay, allowing you to fully enjoy whatever you are doing. Our Thaw Handwarmers come in two sizes. The small hand warmer will last up to 5 to 8 hours and the large hand warmer 8 to 13.5 hours.

Health and Safety: Exposing yourself to extremely cold temperatures for an extended period can lead to health risks, including hypothermia. Hand warmers and seat warmers can help maintain your body temperature at a safe level, reducing the risk of cold-related health issues.

Preventing Cold-Related Injuries: Cold weather can lead to various cold-related injuries, such as frostbite. Using hand warmers and seat warmers can help prevent these injuries by keeping your extremities warm.

Convenience: Rechargeable hand warmers and seat warmers are easy to use and provide a convenient way to stay warm. Unlike those typically disposable hand warmers, rechargeable ones are a better choice, they last longer and are better for the environment too. Making rechargeable warmers a hassle-free and responsible solution for staying comfortable in the cold.

Social Aspect: Sporting events and outdoor activities are often social gatherings where people come together to watch their favorite teams or do things together like skiing, ice fishing, or even snowmobiling. Using hand warmers and seat warmers can make the experience more enjoyable for everyone, ensuring that cold weather doesn’t dampen the social aspect of the event.

Performance Enhancement: For athletes, coaches, cheerleaders, moms, and dads, or even the evil referees at outdoor sporting events, staying warm can be crucial for maintaining performance. Cold muscles and joints can be less responsive and prone to injury, so using seat and hand warmers can help maintain optimal performance levels of the participants, and no one wants to strain a muscle yelling from the stands.

Focus: Staying warm can help you focus on the task in front of you rather than being distracted by the cold. It can enhance your overall experience and allow you to be more engaged with cheering on your team. It is also a lot easier to aim when you are not shivering!

In summary, hand warmers and seat warmers can significantly enhance the comfort, safety, and overall enjoyment of outdoor events and activities, from a brisk fall day to the coldest winter weather, making them a must have choice for anything.
