More convenience. All-day warmth. ThermaCELL rechargeable Heated Insoles and Heat Packs help hunters realize more success with game-changing performance.
No one likes to be cold. Hunters, maybe least of all. The cold saps your energy; it can also mess with your fine-motor skills—well-honed, almost innate movements you depend on to shoot confidently and accurately with gun or bow. Worse yet? Severe cold can even rob you of your spirit—your will to hang in there when the mercury has bottomed out. And that can be a truly dire situation when the ducks have suddenly started flying, or the local bucks are finally on their feet and running.
The good news? The innovators at ThermaCELL have the answers. An entire family of smart products, actually, designed to offer virtual “all-over” body comfort when conditions are bitter.
INSOLES THAT WARM YOUR FEET—AND EXTEND YOUR HUNT
Team ScoutLook’s Mark Melotik recalls his first experience with ThermaCELL’s Original Heated Insoles, the first of several ground-breaking heat-producing ThermaCELL products. It was late December in snow-covered northern Wisconsin, and the bottom had dropped out of the local thermometer. Four degrees? Maybe five? When it gets that cold, the specifics don’t really matter—but your gear certainly does.
Mature, late-season giant bucks like this one never come easy. The ability to stay comfortable on stand for long, cold hours is often the key to catching up with the big boys. ThermaCELL Heated Insoles will help you get it done.
“Late-season bowhunting in far-northern Wisconsin is no time to tinker with your gear arsenal, which is why I was a bit apprehensive about testing what was, at the time, a brand-new product,” Melotik recalled. “Thankfully, the Heated Insoles performed even better than advertised. They not only allowed me to sit comfortably on stand for a good handful of icy hours, I also credit them for keeping me out there during those last critical minutes as evening fell, to arrow a fine freezer-filling doe. I was thrilled. To call that field-test successful is understating things, but it’s important to know I’ve been just as comfortable—and impressed—using my Insoles on days when I didn’t taste last-minute success.”
NEXT-GENERATION WARMTH HAS ARRIVED
There’s more good news: The new ProFlex Heated Insoles are designed to deliver even more comfort and ease of use than the Original model. The upgrades come via a new flexible polyurethane insole material, and a thoughtfully designed removable/rechargeable battery that’s hidden in a unique heel compartment. So you don’t have to remove the insoles to change or charge the batteries. Even better? The new design also allows serious outdoorsmen to carry an extra set of fully charged batteries (talk about convenience), to further extend their time afield.
With the ProFlex Heated Insoles you’ll still find quick and convenient remote operation, and ThermaCELL boasts at least 2,500 hours of use, or about four winters of heavy use.

To get started, simply cut the insoles to fit, then adjust the temperature utilizing the wireless remote control to the setting of your choice: no heat (standby), medium (100 degrees F), and high (111 degrees F).

The heating performance of the ProFlex is the same as the Original. “You’re not going to feel your feet getting hot,” Melotik noted. “But if my experience is typical, they should feel remarkably comfortable, well down into the type of temps where you’d typically be forced to bounce/tap/exercise your feet to promote some semblance of circulation. Admittedly, it was kind of unusual to simply not feel any foot discomfort in temps where it is usually a simple fact of life. I’ve been thanking ThermaCELL ever since, but all cold-weather hunters need to know that the ‘new normal’ has arrived.”
VERSATILE HAND- AND POCKET-WARMING HEAT PACKS
As cool as the Heated Insoles are, it’s important to know ThermaCELL’s innovation doesn’t stop at your feet. Far from it. Also available are two sizes of rechargeable, battery-operated Heat Packs: Compact Hand Warmers come in a convenient two-pack and can be placed most anywhere, while the slightly larger Pocket Warmer delivers even more versatility. These larger models are great for heating a hand muff, slipping in pant or cargo pockets, or delivering “super-sized” warmth to large coat pockets.
Unlike disposable chemical heat packs, ThermaCELL’s Heat Packs deliver predictable heat levels and they can be recharged for many years of use.
For years, the standard heat source for outdoorsmen has been the disposable chemical heat pack, which all of us know has limitations. For one, they’re disposable—made for one-time use. Can you even recall how much money you’ve spent on these things? Chemical warmers can also feature a generally unpredictable lifespan, and some can get so hot and humid that they make hands sweat—not a good situation when wet hands are finally pulled from pockets and asked to operate guns or bows effectively. ThermaCELL Heat Packs eliminate all of these pitfalls by delivering dry, even heating, in much the same way as the company’s Heated Insoles.
SIMPLE, DEPENDABLE WARMTH ON DEMAND
Both sizes of ThermaCELL Heat Packs offer three heat levels: Low (106 degrees F), Medium (110 degrees F), and High (116 degrees F). When fully charged, they will provide up to 4 hours of continuous operation on High, and much longer when you use them as needed. And speaking of charging, the process is virtually the same as charging your cell phone, and the benefit here should be obvious. Your phone is now a secondary “fail safe” reminder to ensure, come nightfall, your Heat Packs and Insoles are plugged in and fully charged come morning.
Hunters and anglers aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the comforting warmth of ThermaCELL Heated Products. Construction workers, hikers, joggers, farmers, police officers … the list of ThermaCELL fans goes on.
Yet another beauty of ThermaCELL rechargeable heat technology? You don’t have to be a hunter to benefit. Ice fishermen are obvious targets, but so are recreational hikers, wading anglers, sports fans, and those who work outdoors in a wide range of capacities. The list could go on and on. All of us know people who consistently claim they are “cold” no matter whether they’re indoors or out—how nice would it be to give them a gift that keeps on giving: versatile, go-anywhere, on-demand warmth? ThermaCELL has figured it out, and for sportsmen, the benefits are obvious: When you can stay longer, and hunt harder, you will realize more success.
