Heated Vests: A Fashion Guide to Heated Apparel for Fall Layering

Technology evolves constantly, from the latest mobile phone models to increasingly smaller mini-computers we can wear on our wrist. However, technology is also progressing with apparel; namely, heated apparel. 

Heated apparel is a wonderful addition to anyone’s life. Whether you love taking skiing trips, work outdoors in the fall and winter, walk to work or class, or even just get cold sitting around indoors, heated clothing is the best way to stay warm. 

What is Heated Apparel Anyway?

So you love your heated blanket, but you’re limited to only using it within distance of an outlet. What if you could take it with you wherever you went? The good news is, you can. Heated apparel is great for staying warm on-the-go. The best part is, there are no cords or super bulky battery packs to worry about. 

Of course, your heated apparel will need to be charged before use, but a compact battery pack stays out of sight and out of mind. Plus, a classic, cozy design allows for optimal heating, comfort, and style with multi-hour warmth.

The Benefits of a Heated Vest

What’s great about heated vests is that they work in both fall and winter. Whether it’s something as casual as apple picking or working outdoors, heated vests are a versatile option for anyone.

Heated vests work great for fall layering during those cool evenings at football games or during your fishing trip. They’re also great in winter to wear underneath your overcoat while you shovel the driveway or take that long-awaited skiing trip. You can even wear them indoors if you tend to run cold without the hindrance of a full coat. What’s more, you can charge your phone on the go using the built-in power source from your vest.

When it comes to heated vests, there is no limit to when and where they can be useful.

  • Watching outdoor sports
  • Skiing, snowboarding, and sledding
  • Fishing and hunting
  • Outdoor work such as construction and mail delivery
  • Walking to work or to college classes
  • Shoveling the driveway and other outdoor housework
  • Commuting to work via public transportation or car
  • Staying warm indoors during drafty weather
