Reusable Hand Warmers
Let’s hear it for sustainable options! Say goodbye to disposable hand warmers and say hello to something that gets warmer faster, stays warmer longer, and never has to be thrown away! Bend the metal disc inside the warmer, and watch it activate the internal ingredients to heat up instantly and gradually become a semi-solid. To reactive for reuse later, simply boil down to “melt” down the internal solution back to liquid.
These are perfect for nature hikes on brisk fall days and for warming up sleeping bags on chilly fall nights! They also come in different shapes and sizes for your convenience. Get them or others like them here.
Hands Free Snack Dispenser
This portable container with a pop-top lid allows you hands-free snacking on the go! It’s perfect for kids and adults alike. The removable lid can be used as a container for easy portion control, and the pop-top lid cuts down on mess and germs from handling the contents. Find it here.
Cosmic Down 20 Sleeping Bag
When was the last time math gave you a warm feeling? This unique geometric sleeping bag from Kelty promises to do just that. Its angular features, trapezoidal construction design, and thermally efficient materials mean you get a cozy night’s sleep. You can order yours here or shop for others like it – just in time for cold autumn nights.
Collapsible Kitchen Gear
Collapsible products mean storage issues are solved! From food storage containers to buckets to bakeware, collapsible products not only take up a fraction of the space, but they help eliminate excess weight from what you’re pulling.
Silicone is extremely heat resistant, so replace what you can in heavier bakeware – like casserole dishes – as well as dinnerware like plates and bowls. Enjoy the extra space, and watch the pounds melt off what you’re hauling! You can order one here.
