Yeah, it's all nice and warm until you go outside. Then the chilled winds smack you in the face, and even though you have a coat on, it takes forever for your body heat to warm it up! Plus if you have a crappy car, you're driving in the blistery cold forever, and the heat doesn't come on until you get to your destination.

That's where the battery-operated electric coat comes in! Put it on, turn it on, and in mere minutes you're as warm as can be!

       Definitely Bakeable, there`s a guy just down the road from me who make electric underwear. (I kid you not)
I'm not sure if he makes heated coats, but everyone remembers his heated underwear.

       I would suggest the batteries be solar re-chargeable,store energy on sunny days, (leave coat on back seat of car) and burn energy on the gloomy days. Or, could the batteries be rigged to re-charge using the energy expended in walking?
