The key to staying warm in the winter is layering. Or, you could just don the world’s warmest shirt — The FLARE. This incredibly functional shirt uses a carbon heating system that adapts to your body’s needs, and is guaranteed to keep you warm in any climate.


The FLARE by Blanc is a revolutionary piece of clothing that utilizes multiple heating components to keep you warm on the go. Through the use of carbon fiber technology the shirt is able to heat up in moments while using only minimal power. That, combined with ultra moisture-wicking fabric means you’ll always feel like your shirt was just pulled from the dryer. The FLARE has three warmth settings to help you adjust to any temperature. Low is perfect for those long flights in a chilly airplane, while medium will keep you moving on a brisk fall morning. The high warmth setting is ideal for travelers who spend a lot of time in the frosty mountains of Europe.


Additionally, the FLARE also comes with a few features to make it even more functional. An included 5000mAh power bank keeps the shirt running for up to five hours and is also capable of charging your smartphone or similar devices. If you need more power for longer trips outdoors, you can always use the USB port to attach a larger power bank. The shirt also has a back pocket for your personal items, along with nifty thumbholes for added comfort and to help seal in heat.


The FLARE retails online for $160 with first shipments expected to begin March 2019. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.
