Have you Heard of Heated Clothing?

Are the cold seasons of monsoon and winter making you wear layers of warm clothes? Are you feeling extremely uncomfortable wearing them? Well, heated clothing is here for your rescue. 

What is heated clothing?

A hi-tech electric wear, heated clothing has tiny wires sewn into the fabric. The wires, which are called heating elements are made from carbon fiber, or in some cases, metal composite, as these materials perform under continual heating and cooling processes. Connected to a battery, these wires begin to warm your clothes, with a low electrical current passing through them, as soon as the battery is turned on.

This winter/monsoon wear is not only futuristic but is also revolutionary. Unlike the boring regular sweaters and jackets, heated clothing is very fashion forward.
