I could have used this in Oregon last week. California has made me soft.

As someone who dreads being cold and often is when winter hits I absolutely love this idea! Totally putting it on my Xmas wish list 😀

I would so buy this. As someone with fibromyalgia, I really suffer from cold winters. @barry_ryan, can I ask what led to you making this? I can imagining it being useful to so many people with conditions affected by colder weather
Barry RyanMaker@barry_ryan · Marketing Manager
@daniellenewnham thank you for your question. It was really down to a desire to get people to be able to get outside and explore in any weather conditions. We also wanted to make the jackets stylish and lightweight. A lot of heated jackets currently on the market are aimed at workwear. We wanted garments that could also be also be a fashion accessory!

Great idea, I would totally buy one right now - but only deliverable to the UK? Also, how heavy is it - it says it includes a 7500mAh power bank, where does it live?
Barry RyanMaker@barry_ryan · Marketing Manager
@humphrey_yang where are you based? we ship primarily in the UK but we can ship to some European countries. The battery sits inside a neat little pocket on the inside (this also houses the USB connector)

Fantastic product! Have you had trouble with people being too concerned about safety/health risks? I'm curious if adoption has been tough because people may be nervous about electricity/heat embedded in their coats ("what about rain?" etc.)?
Barry RyanMaker@barry_ryan · Marketing Manager
@jeff_osborn the beauty of the products is that the Flexwarm technology is 100% safe to wash and it is extremely durable too (the heating technology is actually printed onto fabric)
Jeff Osborn@jeff_osborn · Owner, work/ethic
@barry_ryan Dope -- I'm in! Has that amount of education been enough to quell concerns? I'm not worried about me, I'm worried about the larger masses. All it takes is one person saying a battery caught fire to take REI or scaling in other ways off the table. I'm genuinely curious if this is an issue you guys have run into as a major push-back from consumers.
Barry RyanMaker@barry_ryan · Marketing Manager
@jeff_osborn interestingly it hasn't been much of a concern that we have come up against a lot. But the technology does go through lots of rigorous testing before it hits the market. I guess most people trust that the product is safe to use if it goes on general sale in Europe, because the safety requirements are so high these days.

@barry_ryan 👍 Thanks for taking the time to answer x2!
