What's in a name? KURUMARE, pronounced koo-roo-mah-reh, is a portmanteau word from "calmare" (Italian for "soothing") and "kurumu" (Japanese for "to curl/wrap around") When testing our portable, 7.4V heated blankets, the "soft heat" sensation was often described by the Japanese as "like being wrapped in the soothing heat of a dip in the local hot springs."

Warm & Safe was born out of pure necessity. Back in the winter of 1993 company founder and world traveler Mike Coan found himself uncomfortable and cold while motorcycle touring through the Vosges Mountains between Germany and France. The multiple layers he was wearing were bulky and were simply not enough to keep him warm. This would lead to his first encounter with heated riding gear. At that time, such gear was extremely limited, unreliable and in some cases, dangerous. After purchasing some for himself, it was clear that the designers were not riders and there was room for improvement in many areas.
