We’ve discovered a couple of new items recently that may interest fellow Frosties. Here are our Hot Products for Winter 2023:
Cold Beer Coats – We’ve seen a number of products over the years that help keep frosty paws from feeling the cold on drink glasses or soda cans, but this one is the most unusual and amusing design! It’s an aluminum can cover that mimics a nylon puffer jacket (one for shorter cans, another for taller cans in a larger “jacket”). Another version has a checkered flannel cover. And a third is a beer preserver model that resembles a nylon life preserver. Love the way the can holders show arms held with “hands” warmly in the cover’s pockets! Two layers of waterproof insulation keep fingers toasty while beer (or other beverage of choice) stays frosty.
Available from Uncommon Goods for $13 to $19, pending your design and color choice. Choose one of each for days when you’re feeling like a skier, a lumberjack, or more in a nautical mood when sipping a cold one!
Blueseventy Thermal Swim Gloves – We’ve been asked several times about gloves people with Raynaud’s can wear in the water. After one recent inquiry, we located a pair that look promising from SwimOutlet.com. Most gloves we’ve seen are webbed and geared to help swimmers with speed. These gloves are labeled “thermal” without a webbed design, so they appear to be better suited for keeping Frosties warm. For further reinforcement, we noticed questions on the page, one from a person with Raynaud’s and another from an arthritis sufferer, asking about warmth and the answer was, “Yes, the thermal swim gloves are designed to provide warmth. ” Very encouraging!
Available in black only with a choice of just two sizes (S/M or L/XL), so we assume they are pretty stretchy. A bit pricey for $50, but appear to be a good option for swimmers with Raynaud’s.
