With the winter season lurking ominously in the background and the prospect of chilly winter morning commutes returning one new Kickstarter campaign is aiming to banish the cold winter blues forever.
The PolarSeal Heated Top range is currently seeking funding on the popular crowdfunding website and with 18 days left to go it has already smashed its HK$ 390,000 goal, raising a total of HK$ 2,300,206 so far.
Designed to be super lightweight, flexible, and breathable, Polar Seal tops come in a range of colours and sizes in both men’s and women’s cuts. The tops are designed to provide heat for up to 8 hours, meaning you can go a full day in the saddle without feeling the cold.
Polar Seal is compatible with standard USB power banks giving you the freedom to choose the power bank that suits your needs and taste, or use USB power banks you already might own.

Embedded between two ultra thin dissipation layers, the heating element is fully integrated into the garment, making Polar Seal flexible and breathable. It is also water resistant so no need to worry about using it on soaking wet rides. It can also be hand washed and washed with detergent.
The Polar Seal buttons are engineered to endure shocks without changes to the settings and are reactive enough to be operated with gloves on, which means that you can adjust your heating preferences mid-ride without having to remove any gear.
The fabrics are composed of 92% polyester and 8% elastane, making the garment warm, breathable, comfortable, and flexible, ideal for most outdoor sports activities.
