Electric Clothing Vendors
Is It All Coming Back to you Now, Bunky??!!
Daryl's Heated Vest is constructed using the newest technology in heated
clothing, a fabric called Gorix, and made by At-Last. Gorix fabric is a
carbon-fiber electrically conductive fabric. It looks very much like black
fiberglass, but each strand is electrically conductive. A hole punched in
a heating element made of Gorix won't kill the heating element, the current
simply flows around the damage. Since the current flows from the top of
the heating element to the bottom, the only way to destroy an element would be
to cut it in half, opening the circuit.
Three manufactures currently use Gorix in their products: At-Last and Gorix Co. They both make vests. At-Last is the minimalist version (front and back panels attached by velcro). Gorix.co (limited prices & no pictures) lists jackets, vests, underclothing, full suit with gloves and hand muffs, but I'm not sure you can actually order anything from them.
