Brookstone’s Heated Clothing
All sorts of companies are coming out with jackets especially designed for your iPod or other MP3 players, but wouldn’t you rather have a heated jacket? I sure would, besides, it’s not that hard to reach into your pocket to change the song or adjust the volume.
Brookstone has come out with a few different types of heated clothing, from cargo pants, to vests, to fleeces. A quick glance at any of these products wouldn’t make you think that heaters built in; they actually look like any normal pair of pants or jacket.
Each item of clothing has different heat zones. For the jackets, there are two for the chest, and one for the back. The cargo pants have only two heat zones, lower back, or the butt, and my favorite, the pockets. With all three pieces of clothing, you get the miniscule remote which can adjust each of three/two temperature zones so that you get just the right temperature to keep you all toasty.
All the clothing is designed to be unisex, but I don’t see any women rushing out to get a pair of the cargo pants. You’d be crazy not to want a heated fleece though; imagine having it during those below freezing football games. Sizes are all men’s, and range from small to extra large. Size charts are available on the product page.
A bit of a premium, well a lot actually, is added to the heated line of clothing from Brookstone, but heated pants and jackets are worth a lot to people. Both the pants and the vest are $150, while the full fleece is $180.
