The Drinking Jacket

Alcohol doesn't make you warmer, but jackets do

by

Modern science—including MythBusters—has thoroughly debunked the idea that drinking booze will keep you warm. The opposite is actually true. Nipping on the bottle might make you think you're warm, but it also makes you think you're a good singer. In reality, alcohol lowers your body temperature and could kill you pretty quick if you're out in the cold and underdressed.

Here to solve the age old dilemma of getting drunk without risking hypothermia is The Drinking Jacket.

Sartorially pleasing with a slim cut and motorcycle jacket-style front, the jacket comes in four understated hues: black, blue, grey and red, and, for all intents and purposes, looks like little more than a smart hooded coat. Hidden throughout, James Bond-style, are scads of imbiber-friendly features: a bottle opener zipper; Neoprene-lined can/bottle koozie/pocket combo; built in "drinking mits" with slip-resistant grips; an inside pocket sized for flasks; a secure pocket for your phone, wallet and ID; and a strap for securing you sunglasses. On top of all that—and with four other pockets—it's warm and lightweight.

Fronted by comedian and writer Zane Lamprey, The Drinking Jacket is like a Swiss Army knife married a hoodie in order to keep boozehounds both toasted and toasty.
