Gadgets to keep warm in winter

Venture Heat Men’s Heated Shirt

This lightweight top is battery operated, so it can keep you warm for up to 6.5 hours. It’s made from a stretchy fabric, so it’s not meant to feel bulky (or like you’re just wearing a bunch of panels). It comes in both a black and grey style that can be tossed in the wash for easy care.

Venture Heat Women’s Heated Shirt

The women’s style also comes in a mauve color, giving you more options for your wardrobe. It features the same rechargeable battery and targets the same three areas of the body as the men’s shirt: the shoulders, back and abdomen.
