Self Heating Electric Waistcoat
I don't think I've ever wanted anything so bad at this very moment than this Self Heating Electric Waistcoat. This winter is the first that I've had to pay for my own heat and with oil prices so insane, I've been trying to be very conservative with the thermostat-which is fine and all and better for my wallet and the environment, but I am so cold all the time even with 2 layers, a sweater, a down vest and often a heating pad. The vest runs on 6AA batteries and heats up to 40 degrees in 5 minutes. Heating wires are integrated in the garment and the zipper also happens to be a compass, which might come in handy if you're engaging in outdoor activities (which is probably what it's designed for). But me? I'd be happy as a clam wearing it around the house.
