    Big wiggys fan also. Love 'em!
    Use a piece duct tape to secure a chemical warmer to your backside right at the waistline, kidneys area. Makes a world of difference by adding a bit of heat there when its cold.
    Heck, spoil yourself and one on each side of your spine and you will be toasty......cheap and VERY warm!

    Might want to rethink the duct tape if you have much body hair. The waxing scene out of 40 year old virgin comes to mind. OUCH! Thank goodness for my Scandanavian roots!

    If wiggy's are so warm why do you need chemical warmer?

    Hard to explain winter camping unless you have done a couple nights out. You will never be sorry for having packed some of the chemical warmers. I got rid of all my LED lanterns when I winter camped with somebody with a gas lantern. Now I try to use all propane for fuel management simplicity for stove, lantern, and heater. And I have some of the chemical packs. I use them to keep the edge off down around my feet in the sleeping bag.
