Kuchofuku unveils air-conditioned pants with built-in fans

How do you beat the summer heat? Most people would probably just try to stay hydrated or stand under some shade when outdoors, but Japanese company Kuchofuku has taken it a step further with its new fully air-conditioned pair of pants. In fact, Kuchofuku already has a range of other air-conditioned pieces of clothing, including an air-conditioned shirt and an air-conditioned cooling coat. So it only seems reasonable to add a nice pair of air-conditioned pants to complete the whole ensemble.

The pants have built-in air-conditioning fans designed to ensure sweat cools down the body, with each fan being visible from each side. The battery-powered fans direct cool streams of air down each leg and up toward the waist section so cooling is spread out. The pants are made of a polyester-cotton blend and only seem to come in Khaki at the moment.

Probably the biggest drawback is that the fans tend to inflate them in a kind of hilarious way that the creator describes as "like a Michelin man." But despite looking ridiculously inflated when the fans are turned on, they may be a realistic clothing option for construction workers or other people who spend long hours out in the heat. They come in a variety of sizes and go for about $208 on Japan Trend Shop.
