Air Conditioned Pants

There's a lot to love about summer, but swamp-ass is not one of them. Thankfully, Japan's intrepid garment industry has devised an ingenious solution: air conditioned pants!

As we can see here, there's apparently already a market for upper bodies to be cooled off—uh, here's an idea: take your coat off? But while you can do that, ripping your pants off in public isn't quite as socially acceptable. Thankfully, these trousers are set up with a miniature fan built into cargo-like pockets on the sides which adjust from low to high, depending on the status of your nethers.

Bring on the heatwave, summer. You don't scare us anymore.
