GIVEAWAY ALERT! The very cool electro-cats at Volt Resistance battery heated clothing are giving away the winner's choice of any product from their online store to one lucky Dude loyalist. Read on to learn why you really, really want a COHO Heated Fleece Vest or pair of ROVER TACTICAL Heated Gloves, and follow the link at the bottom of the writeup to enter.

Mother Nature, I see your blustery winter winds and frigid temperatures, and raise you a collection of Volt Resistance battery heated clothing and gear. Maybe you're looking for a holiday gift--from slippers last year to rechargeable lithium-ion battery 3V heated slippers this year, Dad! Or maybe, like me, you're just a cold, cold man who can't walk in the December/January/February out of doors without suffering a wretched chill. For you, for me, for everyone Volt has created a line of gloves, vests, jackets, and toe cozies that promise to infuse our very cores with up to 150 degrees of safe and soothing heat.

Tiny conductive fibers engineered to deliver optimal warmth to cold bodies comprise the foundation of Volt Resistance technology. Add to it their patent-pending Zero Layer design--a tape sealing process that bonds the heating system directly to the shell fabric to conduct better heat transfer and banish bulky layers--and garments emerge providing peak thermal comfort, and stylishly bedecking their wearers in subtle cuts and hues. So everyone feels toasty and no one has to walk around looking like an ad for some As Seen on TV! product.

Skiers, snowboarders, snowman makers, anyone engaging in sporting winter activities can benefit from Volt's glove collection ($149.95 to $219.95), which includes tactical, snow, leather, and fleece designs. A heated softshell jacket ($219.95), fleece vest ($159.95), insulated vest ($179.95), and vest liner ($119.95) make up their outerwear series, and stepping in for drafty evenings at home, or trips down the driveway to get the morning paper, are the Volt indoor/outdoor heated slippers ($139.95).

Volt Resistance heated gear is powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs, and all orders include at least one battery and its charger, as well as a controller so that wearers can dictate their desired heat output. Charge times vary based on the article of clothing, but most Volt heat-emitters stay afire at full output (150 degrees) for at least 2-1/2 hours. Read more about Volt's 3V heating technology here.

And then jump over here to Dude's Volt Heated Clothing Giveaway for a chance to win your choice of any Volt Resistance heated piece o' gear. Entry is free, quick, and painless. And we swear, the reward--given to one entrant drawn at random on December 14, 2012--will be hot.
