If you’re looking to complement your air-conditioned shirt with a pair of pants to help keep your bottom half cool in the summer heat then Japanese company Kuchofuku has you covered. The Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Cooling pants feature two battery-powered fans to direct a refreshing flow of air onto your legs and nether regions.
The cooling hardware hangs in dedicated pockets sewn into the outer thigh of the pants and is lightweight enough to not burden the wearer too much. The pants are made from a 65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton blend and are available in M, L, 2L and XL sizes, to fit waists from 108 to 129 cm (42.5 to 50.8 inches). Color choices are somewhat limited with only a light khaki green available.
The pants join Kuchofuku’s range of air-conditioned products, which includes the aforementioned shirts, jackets, helmet, cushions and even a bed.
Air-conditioned lower limbs don’t come cheap, however, with the fan-cooled trousers priced at US$206 through Japan Trend Shop.
