Ask Alljoy: Will Heated Vest Help Me Stay Warm This Winter?
Whether you're out for a hike, on the slopes, or just taking your pup for a walk, heated vests are here to keep you warm.
Regular coats offer insulation and warmth thanks to fabric and fills. But heated vests take it to the next level by raising your body temperature thanks to advanced features and built-in coils.
Battery and heating components are important, but there are other factors to consider, like the material your coat is made of, the insulation that’s built into the jacket, and even how many pockets there are. Read on to find out some of the most important things to consider when you’re shopping for a warm vest or coat.
💡Battery Life: Most heated jackets and vests for men/ women will provide up to ten hours of heat on a low setting. However, the difference between a high setting and a medium setting can be dramatic. Some coats or vests will last up to six hours at high, while others will drain in as little as three hours. Consider how you will be using your heated vests and what battery life you will need. For example, a skier or a person who works outside all day might want to get as many hours of heat as possible on a high setting. On the other hand, someone who will be wearing their heated vest only for short hikes or walks in the woods may not need as long a battery life.
💡 Charging Time: Some batteries charge in 3 to 4 hours, while others charge in 7 to 8 hours. Depending on how often you use the heated vest or coat, how long it takes to charge will depend on how frequently you use it.
💡Charging Option: Some brands have a USB port that is compatible with car chargers, while others have their own proprietary charging system that only works in a car socket. If you’re someone who likes to charge on the go, make sure that the brand you pick can be charged in your car.
💡Heating Material: Carbon fiber is one of the most popular heating elements used in heated clothing. This technology uses carbon fiber strips or tubular carbon fiber heating elements to heat your jacket or vest. These carbon fiber heating elements are spread across different parts of your jacket to keep you warm. Carbon fiber works well by providing uniform heat and flexibility. It is slightly stiffer than material used to make your jacket or vest, but you will likely never notice the heat zones and you won’t experience any loss of flexibility.
💡Fit: This is even more important with heated vests and jackets because a snug fit means the heat will be trapped inside. Most heated clothing seems to be a bit too small for most manufacturers. This is why it’s so important to check the sizing chart of any heated vests or jackets you are considering to see what fits your body best. Most heated clothing complaints are about sizing, so don’t skip this step.
💡Material: Most heated vests or jackets are made of cotton, polyester, or a combination of both. You’ll also find heated jackets that are made of canvas, as well as heated puffer coats that are made of down. Most heated outerwear is also wind and water resistant, and some are even completely waterproof. Depending on how you use your heated vest or jacket, these features will depend on how important they are for you. Always think about the liner too. It should be made of a material that’s comfortable and cozy.
