The Zippo Hand Warmer

Zippo Hand Warmer


At Superflu’s, we love remain classy in every circonstances and It’s not easy to keep hands warm without having to wear gloves that give you a look of polar explorer.

Thanks to the Zippo Hand Warmer, there is now a simple way to keep your hands warm and in style !

The look of the Zippo Hand Warmer looks like the mythic lighter, but it emits intense heat without a flame through a process called catalytic combustion.
Imagine a miniature camp fire without coal, twigs and flames that come with it … Curious isn’t it?
With its roving fiberglass platinum catalyzed and a tiny dose of lighter fuel, the Zippo Hand Warmer can produce ten times more heat than any conventional hand warmer and last more than twelve hours on a single full!
To engage the beast is simple : light the wick, wait until the light turns red, close the Zippo Hand Warmer and store it in its protective case.
Now morning outings in winter will not make you afraid, and shake hands with your colleagues no longer require ritual warm!
We are huge fans of this after, and we enjoy it after our motorbike rides during the winter !
If you want to order yours, you can find it here at Amazon.

Polartec Alpha, a great new fibre

I hate being cold. Nothing worse than freezing. But I also do not like to wear one of those bulky jackets that look like you could walk them to the north pole.

I ran into this. It’s been invented by Polartec and it should keep you warm. The initial order was made by the US Special Operations Forces. They wanted something really light, small, wind repellent and robust. They also wanted it to dry fast and to be breathable.

So Polartec came up with Alpha. An all new polyester fiber, a knit, very light and puffy material that comes between 60 and 120g/m2, depending on how warm you want it. It’s big advantage is it’s expansibility. It feels like a glove, you can move freely as if you where wearing nothing. It’s fantastic, it’s warm and it feels ultra breathable.

And the good thing is that it’s not only for soldier that want to stay warm, but also for you and me. A wide range of manufacturers now use this new fiber. It comes in jackets and pants and also in gloves and bonnets and its comfort is stunning. You can wear it under your business coat and nobody will see it or if you are one of those outdoorfreaks it will keep you warm in bad and cold weather. I would not wear anything else on my next skiing trip.
