Flexwarm is a jacket that keeps you cozy all year round


Some like it hot, some like it cold, and some wish they didn’t need to wear 10 different layers just to feel comfortable. Even if it’s blazing outside, you could get into work and feel as though you walked into a winter wonderland. It’s hard to maintain some level of comfort when we’re constantly flitting in and out of different temperatures all day. Fashion aside, it would be nice to only worry about owning one jacket.

If you wish you could have a light jacket that could act as your end-all be-all, then the Flexwarm is going to rock your world. This is a light jacket that will intelligently adjust to keep you at your optimal temperature, all year round. Whether that means being toasty in the winter or giving you breeze-protection in the warmer months, it’s certainly a one-stop shop. This has a layer of flexible heating which is extremely thin at 0.5mm, and can reach temperatures up to 149 degrees Fahrenheit in about 6 minutes.

This can be set to high, medium, or low, and you can customize the jacket to keep you at whatever temperature you’d like. There isn’t any cooling aspect, but it’s light enough that you shouldn’t overheat unless you’re actively trying to. This uses two 5V batteries or a power bank that should give you 13 hours of battery life, and corresponds with an app that will let you tailor your temperature from day to day, minute to minute. This is a $191 purchase that will certainly make Fall and Winter less daunting.
