Hot gear for a (very) cold winter

It's extra cold out this winter, so we've stepped away from our space heaters to round up some gadgets that will help you stay warm.

With snowmageddon slamming the Northeast and cold fronts lowering temperatures dramatically in countless other places (including here in Northern California, where it's been hitting the, gasp, 40s--brrr), it might be tempting to hibernate under the electric blanket and cancel all obligations that require leaving the house.

But don't despair. Inspired by a feature story from our friends at CBS' The Early Show," we've rounded up a collection of gear that will help keep you warm and toasty in the blustery cold. Curl up by the fire and click through the gallery below, and if you have any other ideas for warming gadgets, be sure to let us know in the comments section.
