How does it work?
This Lightweight Heated Vest uses ultra-thin carbon fibre heating elements across the lower abdomen, collar and upper back in order to provide gentle warmth. The battery-operated heating system offers up to 10 hours of use on a single charge, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day without worrying about losing power.
The vest offers three heat settings that allow the wearer to choose their comfort level with just the press of a button. Despite their high-tech heating, the jackets are actually a low-maintenance article of clothing and can be thrown into the washer and dryer along with the rest of your laundry.
For added convenience, the vest runs on a USB-A to USB-C power bank that can also be used to charge your phone, or any other USB charged device when not heating the vest.
'A must-have for the chronically frozen people'
With a 4.2-star rating from customers, these insulated vests might be just the thing to keep you warm through the rest of winter.
One shopper called this vest "heavenly," noting that it "doesn't look like a work vest."
"A must-have for the chronically frozen people," they added.
Others raved that this vest "doesn’t take long to heat up" and "stays warm for hours" — making it a great choice when spending long days outdoors.
"Absolute game changer in winter," reads one five-star review.
While this jacket does a good job at keeping you warm and holding its charge, reviewers do not that it runs small.
"Select one size up if you want to be comfortable," cautioned one person.
If you’re looking for an innovative way to keep warm in cold weather, the Lightweight Heated Vest from Soleilwear is a solid choice. Worn on its own or with layers, it provides a comfortable and functional take on winter outerwear.
While it's effective at keeping you warm and toasty, you may just want to size up for the most comfortable fit — especially if you'll be wearing it over bulky layers.
