When it Comes to Recreation, Don't Be Left Out In the Cold
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:25:39 PM »

Do you need a gift idea for the outdoor enthusiast who has everything? Consider a hunting seat warmer. Whether you treat yourself or someone else, there are benefits to the product that go beyond mere comfort. Not only can enduring excessive cold ruin your or your kids' outdoor enjoyment, extended exposure to cold can lead to muscle and joint stiffness or even hypothermia.

Seat warmers are lightweight and portable, so you can take them anywhere. You can even keep a few in your vehicle for emergency use. Electric seat heaters are also good to use in your vehicle if you don't have built-in car seat heaters, and they're great for:

- fishing, either in a boat or on ice
- outdoor concerts
- sporting events
- camping
- hunting blinds

How To Choose a Seat Warmer

Seat warmers are available in several styles, the most common of which is a basic cushion with heated fibers which are powered by a small battery pack. More advanced models, which are great for times when you'll need additional heating for an extended time period, are powered by rechargeable ion-litium batteries. This is the same type of technology that powers your laptop and mobile devices, and it can keep your seat heated for up to five hours. You can even find models that contains 5V, 2.1A USB ports and a compatible charging station that enables recharging even in remote areas and three separate heat settings for more flexibility.

Although the average temperature of these seated heat cushions can reach about 85 degrees, most have built-in safeguards to evenly distribute heat and keep the unit from overheating. If the brand you choose doens't have a sensor to prevent overheating, you can avoid injury to yourself or your children by layering clothes, putting an additional cover over the seat or by using the lowest heat setting and turning the unit off occasionally.

Care and Maintenance

Since seat warmers contain batteries, heating elements and other electronic components, you definitely don't want to put them in the washing machine or plunge them in water unless they're labeled 'submersible.' Most designs have a removable outer cover that an be washed, and care instructions are usually located on a tag or in the package. There are also brands that are completely water-resistant. As with most things, you get what you pay for, os why skimp?

Many newer designs are waterproof, but if you have a spill or encounter sudden rain, remove the cover immediately to inspect for sign of infiltration to the heating compartment. Do not use your heated seat cushion until you are certain the interior is free of any moisture or moisture damage. You should also inspect your heated seat periodically for tears or damage; if any is found, discontinue use until it can be repaired.

Dads need a little R & R from time to time, especially if they're full-time, stay at home parents. Whether you go away for the weekend with the boys or bond with your kids in the great outdoors, there's not reason you can't do it in comfort. You can find seat warmers and other hunting and camping accessories at your local sporting goods or department store as well as through many online retail outlets.
