Heat Factory (Heat Packets)
Heat Factory products are an awesome accessory for all snow sports. There are times when it is just down right nasty cold and a little warmth (apart from your arm pits or crotch) is welcomed. I normally have at least two packs of the hand and sole warmers in my pack if we are going out of bounds or keep a pack of each in my jacket for those days when a thermometer is wearing a bear skin coat. I have used the hand warmers, but the greatest use I have seen for these nifty little packets is for women. Because most women have poorer blood circulation in their legs, their legs get tired faster and often start to cramp. This happens in the bottom of the foot and up along the calf muscles. When the toe warmers or even better the sole warmers are used, it stops the aching and cramping, at least that is what the fine little chickadees that I ride with say.
