Can anyone recommend a outdoor heater that actually keeps you warm?maybe none of them can stand up to our winters.
Thanks in advance

The problem is that there's an awful lot of outdoors to heat... It's like sitting with a birthday candle and hoping it will heat your whole house.

More seriously, what you need to feel warm is a warm layer of air just around your skin. Humans don't have fur or feathers and so aren't very good at keeping that air in place. As soon as there's a draft or a breeze, there's a new cold layer of air next to your skin, and you're feeling cold again. Outside, you've got a constant source of cold air coming in on the breeze, and you're going to feel the cold again.

Is there a reason you need to be outside and warm, or would you be better off inside instead?
