i was thinking about that too. i want to keep with the vulcans charging system (external pack get heavy when talking about 4-5 AH worth of juice), so i have about 60 watts to play with.
As far as pants go, i was looking at getting some baggy levis jeans (i think the 570's) and replacing the outter seams on the legs with zippers all they way up. then going in and using that iron on tape stuff and adhere some one sided fleece. since denim is wind resistant, and fleece is really warm, it should make a nice combo. that way i can wear shorts under it on the way to work (i work in a distrubution center that is heated, and i mean ouch hot!)
now as far as a vest goes, i was looking at using something like one of those fluffy vests, and running my heating wire on the inside and roughly sew it in. that way the heat stays in and is tight against me.
also keep in mind, if you heat your core, blood will flow more to your extremities as that is the natural radiator system for your body. Just dont sweat!!
oh cegodsey, i was just looking at using resistance wire (nickle wire) it will get slightly hot at full blast (no more then 90 degs if i do my math right), and the bulk of the heating will be because there will be a few yards of it. this way hopefully it will be washable
