Are these clothes a scam?

These look like they'd be really good for ribbing at the moment. I wonder why/how they are so cheap?

Notice they say PU coated nylon - in other words they also double up as a portable sauna!!!

It is still a good price though.

I think they mean townie waterproof. For the conditions me and you require to make them work in they would last probably 5 minutes. Might get a cheapish (70 quid) frill out of them though.

Have a look through the guys ebay shop-they do a heated bodywarmer.

I bet that'd go well under a drysuit.

I just googled heated clothes.

Looks like the ebay shop is overcharging rather a lot for the bodywarmers
