In San Antonio as a kid about '60, I bought a dirt cheap WWII bomber crewman trousers and vest from a then ubiquitous Army/Navy store, heated with 24V wiring. I was a low time pilot, doing high altitude (high twenties altitude oil lease infrared photography at night) in a turbocharged Cessna 180. Two lead acid car batteries would keep me toasty for a few hours.
I gave it to a buddy who used it with dry cells during deer season.
If only we could have known the future values of today. In the 60s I bought a Nambu holster for $12from Roland's Sporting goods who sold surplus also. Years later I could finally find a Nambu for it. The regret is Rolands had two more Nambu holsters, considering todays's value, a missed opportunity.
