What's one thing that football players and fans always have to worry about in the cold weather? It's cold hands, of course! Whether you're practicing or playing a game, your hands need to be warm. Here at Battle, we offer hand warmers for everyone from youth football players and adults. Whether you’re playing 7v7 or in a rec league, this football equipment is a must have.

How does a football hand warmer work?

A football hand warmer is a small, portable device that is designed to keep a player's hands warm during cold weather games. It typically consists of a small, insulated container that you can put a chemical warming pack inside for extra warmth. To use the hand warmer, a player simply places it in their pocket or clips it to their football uniform. The insulation then warms up the player’s hands, helping to improve their grip on the ball.

Why would you use a football hand warmer?

On top of using football hand warmers to help keep their hands warm, football players often use this handy tool to improve their grip on the ball during cold weather games later in the season and during the 7v7 football season. Cold hands can become stiff and numb, which can make it difficult to catch and throw the football accurately. In addition, cold temperatures can cause the skin on a player's hands to become dry and prone to cracking, which can lead to painful injuries. By using a Battle hand warmer, a player can help keep their hands warm and flexible to improve their performance on the field.

How do I wear a hand warmer?

To wear a hand warmer, you can follow these steps:

1. Find a suitable pocket or other location on your clothing where you can comfortably carry the hand warmer. Some hand warmers come with a clip or other attachment that allows you to attach it to your clothing.

2. Activate the heat source according to the manufacturer's instructions. This may involve opening a chemical heat pack or turning on a battery-powered heating element.

3. Place the hand warmer in your pocket or clip it to your clothing.

4. To use the hand warmer, simply place your hands over the top of the hand warmer and allow the heat to transfer to your skin.
