That actually looks kind of fun for the "apres ski" function for which it's designed. (I'd have no problems wearing that over black longjohns and boots on the car ride back to civilization. If I had the legs for it...)

It might also make a warm hat.  I wonder what it weighs?

Hmm...3.6 oz.  get it big enough to wear it around the torso for extra warmth in the bag at night, use as freezer bag cozy, and put it on your head when chilling after dinner.  If it weren't a hundred bucks I might give it a go.  It unzips all the way, too, for greater versatility.

And it might be fun to startle the spouse...

Well, you see a mini-skirt but I see a butt-warmer.  :D

I'm thinking like Rebecca.  Maybe making one that's rectangular and zips open all the way, that could double as a small blanket/throw or stuff into a stuff sack for a pillow.

I thought about what the dimensions would be to fit around the widest part of my hips and, well, Rebecca's might be a hat but mine would definitely be an alarmingly large BLANKET...  :p

TF--you don't have to order one to fit your widest part. Not if you don't actually intend to use it as a mini-skirt :D.  When I said hat, I was looking at the itty bitty one on the model :p

As a butt-warmer, though, that thing has potential.  My butt is frequently cold as Greenland in winter.

You could sew in a couple of pockets on the inside, to put one of those chemical warmers in, then it would actually be a Butt warmer.  Most women with cold butts do not generate enough heat from that area for a down mini skirt to help.

He's actually right.  Fatty deposits lack blood vessels, which is why our butts are cold in the fist place.  Now, a down skirt with carefully-positioned hand warmers...this is getting better all the time!

I just thought it was rather interestingly worded.  :)

I meant no harm, and now I see what you are talking about.  Sorry.  Did not mean to imply anything other than the need for hand warmers.  :)

LOL!  I missed that!  And those would be butt warmers, I think.  

I'm really wishing this thing weren't 99 dollars, because it's really sounding rather good to me!

No apology needed.  I thought it was funny (and, obviously, mine was only mind in the gutter...  :D )
