    Default Hand warmers allowed in checked luggage?

    Flying to Wisconsin to do a late season muzzleloader hunt. Can I bring a box of hand warmers in checked luggage?

    I've flown with them checked and not had problem, but I wouldn't guarantee it.
    Why not just grab a box at Fleet Farm when you get there?

    Good advise Milo. Leaving tonight and just woke up this AM and the question poped into my head. Didn't want to waste $40 by tossing them at the airport and knew if I contacted TSA they wouldn't know. Will save them for mushing the dogs (use lots each winter).

    I travel with them all the time both in my checked bags and carry on. One thing I highly recommend for cold weather hunts and being out in the cold in general is Thermacare lower back heat wraps. I wear one on my back and when real cold one over my stomach, they will keep you toasty in even the coldest weather.

    Wife insisted we carry some since she gets so cold on commercial flights. No problems either checked or carried on, and we had a bunch.

    +1 on that! I tried to rep ya but I must spread the wealth first I guess. The thermocares work great! They keep your core nice and toasty
