great article! lots of useful info,i have a hand warmer that sorta resembles a lighter fluid style warmer as mentioned but instead of flammable fluid as a source of heat, it uses a 6inch long by 1/4" think by 1" wide charcol stick, you light one end and place it in the clamshell opening style warmer, close it, slip it in it's cloth carry pouch and you have a 3-5 hour warming utinsle, i bought this one like 15 years ago through campmore, it works pretty good, i think its safer than the lighter fluid style warmer, but i don't see or hear of their availability anymore, sooo maybe no more??? any ways, i thought i'd bring this warmer into the mix, incase anyone was interested.. stay warm out there!!! happy paddleing!! p.f.

Hi, thanks for responding...Yours sounds like a prop out of the movie "Quest for Fire!" I had never heard of that one. The Jon-e I think is history, too! I actually think the Zippo is pretty darn good for the long term but the crystal fluid warmers are the quickest...Each has its pluses. Keep warm and thanks for the comments.
