A rectangular ghillie cover for camouflaging anything a real ghillie suit doesn't, like rucksacks or stationary objects. The straps on each sides and corners mean this can be attached pretty securely to anything.

Doing stuff with cold fingers sucks. Having a handwarmer greatly eases those tasks and generally heightens your morale in the field. Also works inside a sleeping bag!

Note! We do not (can't) ship these abroad.

Invented in Japan in the first quarter of the 1900's, the classic handwarmer has pretty much stayed the same all these years. These particular warmers even look very much like the original item.

The thing works by platinum catalysis, which is like burning, but without any flame, making the handwarmer safe to use. When ignited, the warmer is very hot, so keeping it inside the provided pouch might be a good idea.

The burners wear down with use, but fortunately spares are available and very affordable. But the most important thing to get you started is fuel: use only lighter fluid and nothing else, or you'll risk ruining your hand warmer. Zippo fluid will do just fine.

Instructions:

  • Remove the burner
  • Fill the warmer with lighter fluid, let it soak in and pour the possible overfill out
  • Re-attach the burner
  • Ignite the burner with a matchstick or a lighter (don't burn it for more than 5-10 seconds)
  • Close the lid and enjoy warm hands
  • Important: don't let the fluid stain the burner piece, or it might easily get damaged when ignited. Be careful with this.
  • Also, don't let the burner's soft material touch the filler material of the hand warmer for the reason mentioned above. This should be easy to avoid if you don't pull the filling out with a pair of pliers, but hey, you never know what might happen in the wonderful modern world.

When "on", the hand warmer will be very hot and should be kept inside its carrying bag.

If you want to turn the warmer off, seal it inside an airtight bag, or leave it on the open to let it cool down naturally. Keeping it inside clothing will prolong the duration of the heating effect considerably. We don't have any hard data on how long it will stay warm, but a good guess would be somewhere around 8-12 hours when it's mostly kept sheltered from the weather.

Measurements 9,5 x 6,5 x 1,8 cm, weight 80 g.

Factory new, made by Mil-Tec.

Kätevä ja helppokäyttöinen kapine. Tää on kulkenut mukana sen kaikkien rakastaman intin läpi, eräilyn lapissa ja pitkiäkin aikoja kaapissa. Kuluttaa polttimon parissa päivässä loppuun ainakin itellä, osta 2-3 poltinta per viikko jos käyttää jatkuvasti. Kannattaa säilöä siihen kangaspussiin, tää on oikeasti lämmin kun pääsee vauhtiin ja lämmittää kevyesti koko päivän yhellä tankilla. Syö esim. zippo-bensaa jota saa sotilaskodista. Hyviä paikkoja on makuupussin jalkopäässä, povitaskuissa ja kintaitten alla. Pelasti monet tuplavartiot loppusodassa Rovalla.

Bensan kanssa saa olla tarkkana, ja lämmitin haisee jonkin verran jos ei ole pussissa tai palanut loppuun.
