Best coat ever!

Dec 26, 2016 11:47 PM

My husband bought me a Ravean coat for Christmas. It has a battery pack that connects to heating elements that run through the down coat. Gloves plug into the sleeves and are also heated. The coat turns itself on and off and keeps you warm. It's AMAZING!!! I went outside, at night, in the snow and wind and -brace yourselves - I was not cold. I did not have excruciating pain as a result of getting too cold. I did not come home and pray for death while downing pain meds. I'm not gonna lie. It's expensive, but I won't being going outside without it again. I think I like it even better than my aloe infused socks! Just thought I'd share this great find!

If you google them, there's a whole video explaining why and how it works. Happy shopping!

FatiguedFighter I am so glad you got a coat that keeps you warm. The cold goes right through me and everything goes into spasm and my pain levels soar.. I usually hibernate in winter because of it and only go out to go to the doctor. Last couple of days, as cold as they said it's been, it hasn't been too bad. Without the cutting wind it was actually nice out when I went out (barefoot because I'm an assholeπŸ™„πŸ«πŸ˜³πŸ«πŸ˜œ). It was that way until yesterday afternoon when it start to rain and sleet and was just raw out there.
I have no clue how I ended up on that tangent.. LOL!! Enjoy your new coat and may it bring you many years of snuggly warmth from the cold {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ€—

That's wonderful FatigueFighter! Getting cold makes me hurt too. I'm so thankful I live in the SE USA, where it's mostly tolerable weather.
