Since the Ice Age, man has sought a super light and thin jacket that can protect him from frigid temps when skiing or hunting saber-toothed tigers. Belying its slim profile, Ravean's new C6 12V System can keep you comfy in -4 to 55 degrees using variable heat settings. And despite being down, it's water repellant and fully washable, so you're all set in a wide variety of seasons and conditions. Especially because it comes with heated gloves.
Best of all, the gloves—which are touchscreen-friendly—are also thin, because they don't need batteries. They just grab power from the jacket with a quick connection at the cuff. They're included with a hooded jacket, 12-volt battery (that can charge your mobile device through a slick pocket connection), charger and stuff sack for $162 on Kickstarter (retailing for $399). If they get the last $17K to reach their goal, they'll send your nice, toasty jacket and gloves set in time for Christmas.
