Go Vest Young Man - Double-paned Heat Technology Meets Ready-To-Wear

Argon gas-filled vest inflates or deflates on demand

Double-paned windows provide excellent insulation by trapping heat and air between two sealed layers. Applying this concept to apparel is not new. What is new is allowing the wearer to fill the interior space, providing improved insulation, or to empty the space, providing less insulation, on demand.

Klymit uses small canisters of argon gas, attached to a nozzle, to fill or empty the chambers as desired. The weight of the vest remains unchanged.

The vest is available currently for $195, a pack of 3 argon gas canisters sells for $19.95.

If you could connect your NEST thermostat to this baby you would have real winner.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
