Charles Darwin once said that the species that is best fit to survive is neither the strongest nor the most intelligent one. Change demands adaptability, and though the elements have continued to bring changes we aren’t meant to survive, we have found ways to negotiate our survival. Heated clothing is one example, particularly heated snowmobile apparel that has allowed us to turn the once-dreaded winter into an exciting sports season. Electric snow gear can be warmed by a rechargeable battery. Thin heat-conductive wires run throughout the fabric and get heated with the applied current. As a result, you can gear up in warm jackets, overcoats, socks, gloves, vests, and pants to blaze the trail on your snowmobile in comfort and style. The following are some of the best heated snowmobile apparel from various manufacturers.
