Winter’s close and everyone is busy looking for ways to stay warm as much as possible. Wearing too many layers of clothing and still having those teeth chattering moments can be a very uncomfortable scenario. Looking for comfort and warmth at the same time? Imagine finding warmth at the touch of a button – no matter where you are, no matter how adverse the weather conditions may seem.
Sounds too good to be true? Introducing the new Polar Seal heated tops on Kickstarter. This smart and efficient choice of clothing will not only keep you warm but also helps you move in style and comfort through your busy schedule.
Overview — What is PolarSeal?
Cold winter days can be a real challenge for the early morning runners and athletes. This new apparel can be donned stylishly and promises to provide you with comfort like never before.
The Polar Seal heated top is a brand new product in the market that will keep you warm outdoors even during the most adverse, biting cold weather conditions. The most important and appealing feature of this unique product is that it is designed to keep moisture away from the body and is made from lightweight materials. This quality makes it the perfect apparel to pick for aerobic activities like jogging or cycling.
New Features — What We Love
The new Polar Seal heated tops come with integrated heating elements, promising to keep the cold at bay. This pullover has an athletic cut and has been designed for both men and women in blue, gray, black and pink colors.
It even comes with thumb-holes stitched onto the sleeve of each wrist allowing you to work without the cost of your hands getting chilly.
It can be used as a stand alone garment as well as a middle layer apparel if you prefer to wear a heavier cardigan or sweatshirt atop. The lower section of the left sleeve of this top has buttons attached to it that activates the dual heating zones, where you once again have an option of turning them on together or independently of one another.
You are provided with three distinct levels of heating to ensure that you experience the best comfort designed to suit your needs as situations demand. The thermal elements embedded warm up in less than 10 seconds. The three levels of heating provided are 104, 113 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit respectively. The buttons light up in yellow, purple or red to indicate the zone of heating as well as temperature level that allows keeping a check on your requirements.
Pros — What makes this a great apparel
- The buttons provided are shockproof and waterproof, one of which controls the temperature and the other activates heating zones on the upper and lower back.
- It can be easily powered by a rechargeable power bank that can be carried in the left pocket where it connects to a Polar Seal through USB.
- The apparel can remain heated for about 4-5 hours depending on the strength of the power supply and thus can be the ideal wear for a day out in the cold.
- Since the buttons are placed on the wrist, they are easily accessible.
- The material is light weight, durable, less than a millimeter thick and has been designed to endure alpine conditions, making it a sensible choice for winter sports.
Cons — Things to Improve
Though one of the developers of the product claims that the Polar Seal would work well in water too, the other cautioned that there was a possibility of the power bank to short out.
The primary product as of now focuses only on heat, whereas future developments could use an app and full waterproofing. Despite the educated guess of a battery life of eight hours, the actual period would vary greatly depending on the choice of heating elements turned on, the level of warmth as well as the size and capacity of the battery. Also, a battery of any kind isn’t shipped with this product. So the customers will have to select the smartest choice of battery on their own.
Additional Information — Price and Discount
Polar Seal heated tops are now available on Kickstarter and will begin shipping to customers by November this year. The current estimated sale rate is $169. The pre-order option is available too at a substantial discount for supporters.
