Stop Being Cold. This Jacket Is Heated.

This piece was written by the Cracked Shop to tell you about products that are being sold there.

Baby, it's cold outside, so you're probably all stocked up on hand warmers, foot warmers, leg warmers, and arm warmers, but why do all the warmers seem to stop at appendages? Your entire body is cold, so why not make something that will go above and beyond the standard down jacket? Well, it turns out they have. Meet the CALDO-X Heated Jacket with Detachable Hood.

This heated jacket is the kind of thing that people in 2150 will look back on and say, "Now that was something that actually made sense." This insulated puffer jacket is warm and fashionable on its own, but when you add a power bank into the mix, it becomes a veritable factory of warmth. It offers heating panels made of ultra-fine carbon fiber lining in the upper back, collar, and front pockets, fully encapsulating you in a warm, snuggly hug whenever you're cold. It's like if a heated blanket and a puffer had a biologically confusing baby.

Unlike a lot of warming accessories, it's not useless If you don't have a power bank. You can still get warm thanks to the advanced heat-trapping insulated layer and water-resistant material. You can also protect your phone and other valuables from both the internal heat and the external elements with the zippered pockets, making it a great jacket for skiing, hiking, and other outdoor winter activities. It has three operating modes to let you control the heat and runs for up to eight hours on a single charge. Yes, we're in the "Hang on, my jacket died" era of fashion, but unless you're trying to break some kind of endurance skiing record, you'll never have to worry about it.

Stay warm this winter in a jacket that won't quit as long as you have a power bank handy. For a limited time, you can get the CALDO-X Heated Jacket with Detachable Hood on sale for 76% off $259 at just $59.99. Get it in the following setups:
