Hot Products for Summer 2018

We’re always looking for new items to keep Raynaud’s sufferers warm, even in the warmer months!  Here are our new finds:  Hot Products for Summer 2018.

Hot Products for Summer 2018 - 8Flexwarm Jacket8 Flex Warm Heated Jackets – A member of our Board scouted these heated jackets on Facebook.  What’s unique about the technology is that the heating element is so thin, it’s actually printed into the material, which also makes it ultra light compared to heated apparel with heavy batteries and wires.  The thin heating technology is layered between the inner and outer layers of the fabric to create three fully controllable heating zones.  In addition to a short jacket, the manufacturer also makes a heated vest.

Frosties would benefit from a longer style for more coverage, but the photos do look enticing.  The heating element appears to go around the hips and across the full chest, so the warmth could be toasty!  Pairs with your smartphone to control the jacket temperature.  The women’s jacket sells for about $260.

Hot Products for Summer 2018 - Oggi Cheers Wine TumblerOggi™ Cheers™ Stainless Steel Wine Tumbler  – A friend mentioned these to me, saying that they are selling like crazy this summer.  Most buyers are attracted to the insulation for keeping drinks cold.  Frosties will like the insulation, too – but more for how the double-wall construction will keep their paws from chilling with their drinks!  The tumblers are made of stainless steel with acrylic lids to prevent spills.  Available in some neutral shades, along with bright blue and red for $9.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond.


Hot Products for Summer 2018 - Under Armour ColdGearUA ColdGear® 
– UnderArmour has developed two lines of workout wear that function like your own personal thermostat to determine if you need warmth or to cool you off when you heat up.  The HeatGear® line keeps you cool, light and dry when you’re all sweaty.  The ColdGear® activewear line keeps you warm and dry, even when you’re outside in Arctic conditions.  Guess which ones Frosties will choose!  The technology includes infrared wear that absorbs and retains your own body heat to keep you toasty; a lightweight second skin fabric that’s smooth on the outside, but brushed and soft on the inside for lightweight warmth; fleece items; plus jackets with Primaloft® insulation to keep you warm and dry.  Items sell for about $35 to $200, including fleece gloves, long-sleeve shirts, leggings, jackets and beanies.
