Heated Vests: Taking Vests to a Whole New Level

Heated Vests: Taking Vests to a Whole New Level

Outerwear vests have become a staple for cold weather climates.  As a fashion statement, vests never go out of style.  Having the ability to be worn as a standalone, or paired underneath another jacket, the options of a vest reach far and wide.

One obvious drawback of vests is that because of the lack of sleeves, extreme cold conditions are no match for a standard vest.

Heated vests, on the other hand, give you style choices you prefer matched with the warmth you demand. Heated vests use long-lasting lithium-ion batteries to power the hair-thin heating panels. These heating panels are strategically placed on your body to keep your core warm.  Keeping your core warm is key in warming your entire body.

Utilizing micro-fibers in the heating panels, the amount of bulky insulation found in traditional vests is greatly reduced.  Insulated vests are designed with the thought of trapping your body’s heat. The drawbacks of this method of warming your body outweigh the benefits. The amount of bulk used in a traditional insulated vest is much higher than that of a heated vest as heated vests have the luxury of actually producing heat rather than simply attempting to trap heat.  This added bulk also limits your mobility and detracts from your style.


Heated vests not only improve your body’s warmth, but also give you greater performance by being sleeker, and more form-fitting allowing you to move freely.

If you currently enjoy the adaptability of vests, imagine the possibilities of a heated vest.  With a temperature controller, you have the option to regulate the heat to your exact desire.  Power up the heat to the maximum setting on chilly mornings then set the levels to to the low setting as the sun comes up.  When you head in for lunch, switch off the heat completely.  That is what makes heated vests so convenient, is that you are not limited to a single heat setting and can choose to wear the vest on its own even without the heat powered on.

When you are ready for greater control, more styling options, and ultimate warmth, then you are ready for a heated vest.
