A couple of years ago we were running in sub 10 degree F weather I had to ask the other gentlemen running with me, “Am I the only one that has a cold pecker right now?”  After the laughter died down, a couple of my friends admitted that they too suffered from this issue when the weather got this cold.

We’ve had a lot of talk but nothing has ever come of it.  Well it looks like someone beat us to the solution.  However, I’m not sure I’m really keen on the design.  The ThermaJock has made it’s way onto the internet.

Slide on, cinch cord, adjust strap and go.  So here is my major question.  What happens if you are warm when you put it on but then get cold.  Does it self adjust or do you pull over to the side of the trail and adjust the cinch of your cord and adjust your strap?  I’m sure this would impress the other runners seeing you along side the trail with your hands down your running pants.

So, in conclusion, I still think I like the Wooly Mammoth design that we came up with better.  Now we just need to figure out what to make the eyes and ears out of so that they don’t chafe.  However, I do admire Christina and Tom for getting a solution to market.

    That is the strangest use for a beer cozy that I have ever seen.
