Its an idea that im currently exploring, apparel irl such as copper gloves exist.

I took a pair of work gloves i'd brought for doing work in the garden threading some very thin copper wire through some elastic bands on the underside near the wrist, ive been wearing them in below 10c weather at night outdoors. Have to say they do seem to be helping. The idea is that the copper heats up from your bodys own heat, a sort of biological heating system. NASA uses copper infused clothing for astronauts in the ISS

Love material science.

Some benefits to such clothing in game
- could provide some resistance from zombie bite disease
- allows the player to move slightly faster reflecting the lighter clothing
- gives another use for copper wire
- could be modded further to plug into a battery pack resulting in electrified heating
- if electrified could charge or power simple devices

I know such technology hadn't been created commercially in Y2K, the point is it could easily be adapted. Coppers been known for a long time of its antibacterial properties. The Romans used it extensively https://www.unrv.com/economy/copper.php A valued metal throughout the ages.

If we borrow a little fiction, its very possible that someone could of created a jacket that was capable of charging rechargeable batteries for a torch or a cell phone, solar panels have existed long before Y2K.

Interesting article discussing why more hospitals arn't using copper to prevent disease
