Those heat packets do work well, sometimes too well. They are very good for
glove warmers. Direct exposure to skin may be a hazard. I suggest playing
with them in the back yard while raking leaves or shoveling snow before
venturing out with them. The cost/benefit is good, although caution is
still advisable. They do become trash that must be carried out, hence that
1 ounce stays with you the entire trip.
