Default Brunton Seat Warmer

Picked up one of these from REI for a cold weather option to cut down on the need to run my furnace. I am hoping sleeping with it under my core will be an efficient way to stay warm. Says it will run more than a full night at 100...

What do you think? Compact and should come in handy for a number of cold weather uses...

When I go on long hikes/camping in the winter I wear one of these around my core. It comes with a smaller battery but I carry a 20,000 mAh battery in my backpack for 8-10 hour comfort.

Uses bluetooth so heat settings can be changed from your smartphone.

Pretty neat. Haven't seen one of those...

We use the Brunton golf cart seat warmers under our sleeping bags in the back of our RV.. They work great.

That was exactly what I was thinking. Thanks.

Designed for this purpose. The dial goes to seven. Setting it at one half of one is usually warm enough. Though is says "twin", two can share.

Yes I've seen those and I hear they are great but that pulls off the 12v system in the RV. The Brunton warmer I bought uses a battery pack I can charge when driving to stretch my amp hours. It's enough to get through at least one night, probably two between charges. Not a huge deal but every little bit helps in a B with limited resources. I boondock pretty exclusively.
