There’s only so many layers you can throw on to warm yourself up in cold weather. So when all else fails an item of heated clothing might be the way to go. But if you’ve never looked into heated clothing before - or you didn’t even know it existed - then fear not, we’re here to help you out! We’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
The Heated Jacket
ORORO Men's Soft Shell Heated Jacket
Ororo offers some of the best heated clothing items on the market, with their jackets being particularly revered. Available for both men and women, this water-resistant soft shell jacket has built in carbon fiber heating elements across its chest and back, with three different heating settings to choose from. The on-board battery that heats the jacket offers up to 10 hours of battery life, and can even be used to charge your smartphone. This jacket also has a removable hood for added versatility.
The Heated Vest
Mobile Warming Men’s Vinson Heated Vest
The heated vest, or gilet, is a great halfway house for those who are anticipating a chill in the air, but don’t necessarily need to totally wrap up. Similar to the Ororo jacket, this Mobile Warming vest has heating elements on its chest and back, and also offers up to 10 hours of battery life. This vest has built-in controls to toggle between its 4 heat settings too. Or, you can use the MW Connect app to adjust the settings, as well as check things like battery life.
The Heated Socks
GLOBAL VASION Heated Socks
Tucking your arms into your body for warmth is okay, but if your feet are cold, it’s not gonna do much for you. Cold feet can be debilitating in bad conditions, but these heated socks from GLOBAL VASION target your toes and offer three different temperature settings. These thick winter socks are also highly absorbent and breathable for added comfort. And don’t worry, they won’t shock you, even when wet.
The Heated Gloves
Savior Heat Heated Snowboarding Gloves
Of course, as well as cold feet, cold hands can stop you in your tracks too. These gloves from Savior Heat offer three temperature settings, and are able to heat the back of your hands and all along your fingers for optimum warmth. They work fast too, heating up in just 30 seconds when activated, via their convenient on/off switch located on their backs. We love the solid construction of these gloves too: 40% lambskin and 60% waterproof polyester.
Before we reveal our top pick, here are a few other great products that are worth a look:
DEWALT MAX Camo Heated Jacket (DCHJ062C1-S)
ORORO Men's Lightweight Heated Vest
Life Store Heated Scarf With Neck Heating Pad
The Heated Hat
Autocastle Heated Beanie Hat
Last, but certainly not least: your head. If you want to keep your ears warm, then Autocastle has this heated beanie that offers three different temperature settings, and up to 7 hours of continuous heat from a charge. The heating elements of this hat sit on either side of your head, allowing for warmth to wrap around you. This hat is also water- and wind-resistant, to help you battle the elements. And we like its understated design too, which is available in two black designs, and one grey.
So which item of heated clothing should you buy? Well, it really depends on what kind of weather you’re going to be tackling, and how good you are in the cold. If you have particularly bad circulation in your fingers or toes, then we’d definitely prioritise socks and gloves - because as we said, cold fingers and toes are very difficult to ignore.
