"This looks like a pretty normal Columbia jacket, right? You might even have one that looks just like it. Still, I bet your jacket doesn’t have a built-in battery pack that powers its handy-dandy self-heating feature. Rechargable via USB, the jacket was designed by a former Intel engineer and has a heat-conductive carbon fiber mesh running through it. That battery pack we mentioned earlier is good for five hours."

if they can heat up then we'd need less thick jackets
tho i don't see myself plugging my jacket into the PC when i get home xD
"whats up?"
"oh nothing i'm recharging my jacket"
"hey dude you really should stop being on computer all the time, you're getting really weird!"

I have a gaming PC and all gaming consoles and it definately doens't get you laid!
