The Winter Olympics opening ceremony will take place on Friday, February 9th in PyeongChang, and it鈥檒l undoubtedly involve some chilly temperatures. Luckily for team USA, the athletes will stay warm and toasty during the entire walk, thanks to some snazzy next-level jackets from Ralph Lauren.

Ralph Lauren has been tapped as the official designer for all Team USA garb and we are more than a little jealous. Not only are the red/white/blue striped jackets appealingly patriotic, they鈥檙e also cozy AF thanks to an innovative 鈥渨earable heat concept,鈥 as per a press release. According to reps, there鈥檚 essentially a mini heater inside the coat. (Why don鈥檛 *all* jackets have this feature!?)

Here鈥檚 how it works:鈥濃he heating system is made from electronic printed conductive inks, printed in the shape of an American flag in carbon and silver ink and bonded to the interior of the jackets,鈥 the brand explains. The conductive ink is connected to a battery, which generates heat for up to 11 hours.

These jackets will be sold in a 鈥渧ery limited鈥 quantity in NYC (call the Prince Street location for additional details) so the chances that these will become a trend are pretty slim. While you *probably* won鈥檛 be able to snag one, the outfitter does sell a host of other official (albeit non-heated) Team USA pieces. Take this adorable Team USA Polar Bear T-Shirt ($145) for instance. Looks cozy enough. That said, we鈥檇 be lying if we said we weren鈥檛 hoping Ralph Lauren makes heated jackets mainstream in the future. Until then, we can鈥檛 wait to watch team USA open the Olympics in in their hi-tech coats!

Would you want one of these heated coats? Let us know @BritandCo!
