FuelWear makes sure the weather won’t slow you down


Winter is slowly drawing near, and if you live in the states, you’re likely prepping for the chance of another polar vortex hitting. Of course, the weather isn’t necessarily bad everywhere, but in some cases it can be dangerous just trying to get home. If your car gets stuck on the road for more than a few hours and/or you have to sleep in your car but don’t want the engine running all night, you’re going to have to have several different ways to keep warm.

If you’re in an area that gets to dangerously low temperatures, then you’re going to want to make sure you layer yourself in warm winter gear. Of course, you should start with something that will keep you warm, like FuelWear. This is a shirt made out of bamboo fabric that has smart temperature controls which will keep you at your preferred temperature. It has three active heating elements, two in the front and one in the small of the back, to make sure that your torso stays warm.

This is perfect for those who have to commute, work outdoors, or just love winter sports. This is machine washable, and is powered by a rechargeable battery that will work continuously for anywhere from 3-12 hours depending on how hard it has to run to keep you warm. For those who are wanting to use this for sports or exercise, don’t worry, you aren’t going to be electrocuted. The circuitry they used can withstand some sweat, and will shut off if it gets soaked. You do have the option to turn off the smart sense heat and choose the temperature manually. You can pick up your own shirt for around $150, but will likely want to get an extra battery pack as they last for about 500 cycles (and the shirt will be useless without it).
