Handwarmers can help protect snowboarders during winter

The chill in the air means that it's almost time for winter activities. Being active in winter is just as fun as sports and games are in the summer. Hunters are getting ready to go out. Kids are looking forward to hours spent gliding on ice skates. Teens and young adults alike are gearing up for skiing and snowboarding.

Placing a hand warmer inside a pair of gloves or mittens can go a long way toward keeping warm outdoors. These small square packets fit neatly inside your gloves or mittens and can provide heat for hours.

It's important to protect yourself from the cold. Even standing in line to watch a holiday parade can leave you chilled. At holiday events it's not unusual to see people wearing coats and wrapped in blankets trying to keep warm. 

You can also get warmers for your feet. These work the same way as the hand warmers mentioned above. Slip one inside your shoe for hours of warmth.

Why come in from the winter fun one minute earlier than you have to? A warmer can be especially helpful if you're out there on one of the new Burton snowboards. Both new riders and progressive riders can use hand and feet warmers. 

Are you looking for a stocking stuffer or birthday gift for your snowboarder? Don't forget to pick up some of these warmers. There's no doubt that they'll thank you for them.
