This is the infamous question this week in East Tennessee, with the weather being so uncooperative. Snow and ice seems to be creeping into every corner, crack, and crevice leaving nothing untouched by it's frozen clutches.
When you decide you're going outside, you dawn your heaviest parka (after throwing on a few more layers than normal) and thickest pair of jeans you own. After lacing your snow boots and tucking your socks into your jeans, you drape a scarf around your face, and pull down a thick, fleece lined beanie over your ears. As you boldly step out into the cold, frost bitten landscape, you realize you look exactly like "Randy" from A Christmas Story. It's not long before that chilly air starts to break through your wall of insulation and you just get COLD! What then?
Well you could turn to the average Hot Hands, not a bad item in the least, but just a temporary fix. Why get a simple temporary item when you could have the same heat, in a form that's more durable, structured, and doesn't get tossed away when you're finished using it? What could this dream heated device be? The Celestron Elements ThermoTrek Rechargeable Hand Warmer (Isn't that a mouthful? Let's call it the TRW)
The TRW is a rechargeable, pocket sized heater that can last up to 6 hours. Rugged and rechargeable, with up to 6 hours of continuous heat, this pocket sized warmer promises to keep your fingers frost free for the long haul. The durable aluminum body and silicon caps mean weather resistant, worry free use for years to come. The TRW charges via a USB 2.0 connection and its compact design means plenty of room in your pack for other tools of the trade.

Our Bass Pro customers have raved over this item, leaving 5 star reviews and passing along this item as a perfect gift to others! One customer said, " I bought this a couple weeks ago to see if it would really work. It was great, stayed very warm all evening and kept my hands warm. I'll need two, as I may drop these into my gloves when it gets very cold. It recharged in about 2 hours. I spend a ton on Hot Hands, and I always run out just when I need one. I figure this will save me a couple hundred bucks this season, so way to go! Highly Recommend!!"
