View Full Version : Temp heat packs in wet suit?

Any one ever use those little temp toe warmer bags (something like this - http://www.amazon.com/HeatMax-ToastiToes-Activated-Warmers-Adhesive/dp/B0007ZF4PE) in your wetsuit for some temp heat?
Figured if you put it on the smalls of your back, then you get that radiator type action.

Tiki made a little belt similar to the back support belts with two pockets over your kidneys. It had 2 heating pads like the hand warmers you can get that you boil in water then crack off and they give off the heat. I never tried one but I reckon they'd be nice.
Would take the edge off on a cold day and stop your lower back tightening up.
The whole concept of those devices is that through the kidneys circulate a lot of blood so by warming up the kidneys you warm up the blood that will be circulating through your body hence producing the warming sensation.

quicksilver makes that vest. i don't like thinking of using something that could rip and then leak creepy materials onto my skin.
I do have that one and the sensation it gives is the same one that you will feel when the sun hits your back on a sunny day

Shoot it would be great to have some warming options for those of us who have injuries. I wish I had some constant heat wrapped around my knee. I used to have one of those boil packets that you crack before use. The thing was awesome, a pain to recharge since you had to boil it every time and it only lasted an hour or so but it got hot for sure. 130 degrees if I remember the specs correctly.

There are a few wetsuits that have thermal elements integrated in them like Rip Curl's H-Bomb there are also battery powered thermal undervests too.
