As the holidays come and go, icy cold weather becomes a constant for many. Sure, you’ve got the furnace, space heater and the fireplace and maybe even the chiminea fired up, but that can’t isolate you from all the wintery winds, rain, snow and other inclement weather you may face.
Heavy coats, hats and boots are helpful, but they aren’t the entire answer. Take a look at the 15 highly rated products we found. You’ll find items that make home life cozier, protect you when you’re out skiing, hiking, walking otherwise in the elements and keep you cozy wherever cold threatens you.
Hot Products For A Warm Winter
We bet you enjoy hot times this holiday season, but many of us face some frosty days ahead. Even those in tropical climates will likely get their chill on this winter. Get ready to warm up with these 15 top-rated, budget-friendly products that are hot items when the weather is freezing cold. As always, the prices listed may fluctuate over time.
1. HotHands Body and Hand Super Warmer
Cold hands are just part of the winter experience, especially when hiking, biking or watching an outdoor sporting event. Sure, you can wear mittens or gloves, but those can make holding a coffee cup, snack or other items nearly impossible. That’s when HotHands Body and Hand Super Warmer comes in handy. They are rectangular-shaped single-use air-activated heat packs that contain iron, water, vermiculite, charcoal, polymer and salt. They heat up in 15 to 30 minutes after opening and stay warm with an average temperature of 140 degrees Fareinheight and a max temperature of 163 degrees Fareinheight for up to 18 hours. They measure just 13 inches by 5.25 inches by 4.5 inches, so you can easily slip them into a pocket for later use.

2. Field & Stream MaxxDry XL Boot Dryer
The Field & Stream MaxxDry XL Boot Dryer is one of those luxuries you never realized you wanted until you used it. That was sure true of me. Sure, it’s great for drying damp or soggy footwear, but the magic comes when you put your dry slippers or regular shoes on it. Let it warm up, slip the footwear on and enjoy the snuggly warmth. The dryer works with forced thermal convection to about 105 degrees Fareinheight. The heat also reduces odor-causing bacteria, fungus and mold. And, no need to decide whose slippers get toasty first—you can dry four items simultaneously. Use it on footwear made of leather, PVC, rubber, neoprene, canvas, synthetics, cloth, fleece, felt, microfiber and other modern fabrics. Once you try it, we bet you won’t want to stop.
