Been calling around, but can't find any local sources for heat packs, as I need to ship some plants.

Anyone have any ideas where I might find some? A certain type of store?

I bought some at the local pharmacy, but they didn't have any that lasted more than 12 hours, and those barely provided any warmth past the 8-10 hour mark.
I bought some 60 hour heat packs from Ken's Fish which have provided plenty of warmth well past the 2-day mark (which USPS Priority Mail usually has no trouble delivering within).
They've also got bags (breather and airtight) and other supplies you might want to pick up while you order.

I just want to second the endorsment of Ken's Fish. I have ordered shipping supplies from them a couple of times (including heat packs). The supplies are good quality and they shipped promptly.
