We’re always happy to share our product discoveries with fellow Frosties. We haven’t tried these items, but they do look warm!
The Heated Wrap – This product is like a heating pad or an electric blanket designed to wrap around you arms and shoulders, plus pockets for warming up frozen fingers! Since it’s designed as a wrap, it drapes like an apparel item you’re comfortable wearing at the office without looking like you’ve donned a Snuggie. Made of soft polyester fleece, the wrap has 4 heat settings and an auto-shut-off feature after 3 hours (in case you fall asleep curled up watching TV!). There’s a generous 9 foot cord for lots of move around freedom. Machine washable. Comes in dark Slate grey with a lifetime guarantee from Hammacher Schlemmer for 59.95. Better tell Santa!
Cold Killer Pants – Title Nine has several styles of pants for women designed to “win the cold war!” One is called the Cold Killer Pant that sounds like a great winter solution for runners. The front is made of a weather-proof shell fabric that’s windproof; the back is a wickable knit layer that helps regulate body temperature. Designed to allow for easy movement and stretching – slim, but not tight, so there’s room for a base layer. Other features include a zippered pocket and drawstring closure. Reading the testimonials, one buyer was at first skeptical, but was won over by her first trial experience: “…the loose fit acts like a down blanket does by trapping your body heat.” Another buyer said, “Today I wore them inline skating. It is windy and cold today, and I didn’t feel the wind at all.” I might have to try them for cross-country skiing! Come in Regular, Short and Long lengths in sizes XS to XL for $99.
Janska Fleece MocSocks – These booties are a hybrid between slippers and socks, made out of soft, cushy polyester fleece. They have a non-skid sole for use indoors, but are also make toasty liners inside boots or toe warmers for bedtime. The fabric in the soles is doubled for extra warmth. There’s a great story behind the Janska brand. It was founded by a woman named Jan Erickson. After her friend experienced a stroke and had difficulty wearing regular apparel, Jan designed a jacket for her that turned into an entire product line that would give the disabled comfort, respect and dignity. I don’t know how dignified you’ll look wearing these MocSocks, but they sure look comfy! Available at Fair Indigo in fun combo colors of Black/Red, Kiwi/Royal, Forest/Crocus and Ocean/Sun in Unisex sizes S, M and L for $34.90.
