    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Zippo Hand Warmer - Chrome is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "must-have" in your outdoor arsenal These Zippo hand warmers are great and are "must-haves" for any outdoor, cold weather situation--especially where campfires are prohibited. The disposable ones are cheaper-yes, lighter-yes, but they simply don't provide the same heat output and longevity as these. The disposable ones get HOT for 2-3 hours, then stay warm to lukewarm for the next couple of hours or so. These will stay consistently HOT for 8-12 hours on a full filling. I recommend searching for these online as there are dozens of reviews that offer way more pros, cons, and tips than I am willing to spend the time to write here. As for my experience, they work great. They are easy to use (once you get acquainted with them). They will get too hot to touch without burning your skin if you do not keep them in their pouches: similar to fire, the temperature can be regulated by suffocating the burner somewhat by keeping it within the pouch for awhile (less O2=less heat) or allowing the burner to breath freely by exposing the holes in the shell to open air outside the pouch for awhile (more O2=more heat). There is no open flame, so you can simply hold them, place them in your hand pockets to warm your hands when needed, or chest pocket to keep your body warm. Also good to use in a sleeping bag if extra warmth is needed. Tip: to save fuel, bring a Ziplock bag or other airtight container to suffocate them completely, which will stop them from burning all day/night otherwise, conserving fuel, as there is no other way to turn them "off". Use lighter fluid (not charcoal-type!). Zippo recommended fuel (obviously), but Ronsonol (owned by Zippo) works just the same. I hear white gas/camping fuel works as well, but personally haven't tried it myself. My complaint is the pouch that they come with: made of felt material that encumbers the heat output slightly more than necessary (perhaps for safety/liability on Zippo's end?). My girlfriend stitched together a couple of pouches for me, made from a pair of old flannel PJs, that work much better. If you don't have the stitching prowess to do the same, shop around! Final words: get one, try it out. If you like it, get another! Also makes a great gift for friends/family residing in "cold weather" states. Do look these up online for more information!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is indispensable! This product works perfectly when for instance I need to take my gloves off to rewire a lamp on a 400' guyed tower at -10* F or when I am connecting a coaxial jumper to an antenna in a blizzard near the Boundary Waters. I threw away the felt bag and stuck it in a hand m u f f (that is what they are called you politically correct computer!) so I can quickly get the blood back to my fingers. The steel really sucks the heat out of your fingers and makes it dangerous and intolerable. In short, this is one of the most valuable pieces of personal protection I have. Buy 1 or ten and give them to your friends. They will remember you every time they go out and are not in tears from frost bite. I suppose it would be useful in a cold weather bag too. I will let you know.
