Men’s Convertible Heated Soft Shell Jacket v. Men’s Heated City Jacket

Not all soft shell is created equal. Both of these jackets combine the stylish aspect of moisture-wicking soft shell and hair-thin heating elements, but they really offer so many different things.

The Convertible Heated Soft Shell Jacket allows for full adaption for the weather. Go from jacket to vest in a matter of seconds with a few pulls of the zipper. We’ve seen these poorly executed, with large, annoying zippers on the sleeves. Not this one.  This heated jacket is streamlined and sleek, the zippers are discreet – allowing for a fully stylish jacket as well as a fully functioning heated vest.

In addition to being very versatile, the convertible jacket has three heating panels: two in the chest and one in the back, making sure you’ll stay warm all the way around, with or without the sleeves.

The Heated City Jacket is sleek, stylish and provides a lightweight jacket without compromising any comfort. With two heating panels in the back and two in the front, this newly released model is bound to be any skier’s best friend.

Both jackets use Venture Heat’s Lithium Ion Battery and can provide up to 5 hours of soothing comforting heat. You can’t go wrong with either jacket, which is always appreciated.

How to Decide Between a Heated Jacket and a Heated Vest

How to decide between a heated jacket and a heated vest.

Choosing between buying a heated jacket and a heated vest can be a difficult choice to make.  Both options have their own perks, but may not offer exactly everything you are looking for.  A heated jacket will provide better protection against the wind and snow, but the heated vest may be the style you prefer.  If you are trying to decide which alternative may be right for you, why not just get both!

The Convertible Heated Soft Shell Jacket quite literally adapts to the weather.  With zip-off sleeves, your choices in what to wear with your outfit are extremely versatile.
