A pair of University of Utah students has launched a line of uniquely designed pants called Sakpants through a university-sponsored entrepreneurship program. Students Brayden Iwasaki and Garred Lentz came up with the idea for Sakpants, a cross between "Thai fisherman pants" and children's footie pajamas. Take a look at what Sakpants are all about, and how to use them at sakpants.com.

"The built-in footies trap heat, and coupled with the soft, lightweight fabric of the pants, create the perfect temperature during those cold, winter months." - Brayden Iwasaki.

"Growing up in the land of ski resorts and freezing-cold winters, I was constantly trying to wrap my feet in my sweatpants to stay warm when I was hanging around the house. That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands." - Garred on his motivation to create Sakpants.
