Stay Warm Outside With A Heated Vest

Updated on July 10, 2014

Clothing to keep you warm

Looking for a heated vest? It's just what you need to stay warm in the freezing winter air. These will fit neatly under your normal outerwear and won't interfere with your daily activities. Sometimes if it's just mildly cold outside, I can just pair mine with a long sleeve shirt and that's all it takes for me to stay warm and snug.

Whether you're hunting, working outdoors, or just having fun in the snow, a heated vest will allow you to do it faster, longer and better because you won't be fighting the cold.

Why I Prefer These

As a woman, I prefer these over electric coats because lets be honest, electric coats aren't very stylish. But my lightweight vest allows me to wear my own coat and look fabulous while still staying warm and toasty.

My husband says he likes them both the same (but I think that's because they both come with bragging rights).

Heatha Heated Vest

This is unisex and includes 2 rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries and a battery charger. The automated temp control keeps it steadily warm between 93 and 108 degrees. It's lightweight, so it's good to wear under your coat. Comes in medium, large and x-large.

Venture

This waterproof vest has 3 heating panels (front, back and collar) to allow for even heat distribution. It warms instantly and with 4 temperature settings, it's sure to keep you warm even on the coldest rides .Includes a vest and a power cord that plugs into your motorcycle. I really wish I'd known about these during all those night rides on our Kawasaki!
