We all know what it's like to step outside on a chilly fall or cold winter day unprepared: the frigid chill sends us straight back inside. In contrast, stepping outside with the proper winter attire can make even the most freezing winter days tolerable.
Many people turn to heated jackets or heated blankets when they think of heated apparel and accessories. Of course, these are excellent choices for various occasions, but we’re diving deeper into an unsung hero of the heated apparel world: the heated vest!
It is a conundrum: a lightweight heated vest or a toasty heated jacket?
Both are solid choices when the cold weather looms, but let's turn up the heat on this debate and see how they stack up.
While this article has been a head-to-head matchup, the truth is, Gobi Heat heated jackets and Gobi Heat heated vests have a ton in common:
So which should you choose? The heated vest might be your new winter BFF if you want to embrace those arm-free vibes and keep your core cozy. But if you're looking for all-over warmth, the heated jacket has your back (and arms).
We get it. Picking out the perfect men’s heated vest or heated vest for women can be like choosing between chocolate and vanilla (or maybe camo and quilted for the more fashion-focused among us).
Before you press that checkout button, we can help you iron out the most common questions that keep curious minds buzzing.
Like their jacket counterparts, heated vests use heating elements or heating panels strategically placed around the core areas. When connected to a battery pack, they generate warmth, enveloping you in a cozy embrace. Gobi Heat’s vests have a durable conductive threading heating system, ensuring longevity and top-notch warmth.
Apart from the cut and design tailored to different body types, the primary heating system remains consistent. However, styles might differ, and sizing will vary depending on the product you purchase.
Depending on the heat settings you choose and the battery's capacity, many vests can sustain battery life for over 8 hours. Gobi Heat’s heated vest rechargeable batteries last up to 10 hours depending on the temperature setting you choose, making it an ideal choice for those seeking longevity.
Absolutely! Many heated vests, including the Gobi Heat Dune Heated Vest, are machine washable. But always, always check the label or manual. For most, you'll want to remove the battery, zip up those zippers, and use a gentle wash cycle. No more fretting over that accidental coffee spill during your morning hustle!
Most heated vests, like their jacket siblings, are made with water-resistant materials. So whether you're caught in a drizzle or a snowball fight, your vest has got you covered and your heating zones protected.
Usually, each vest comes with its compatible charger. While many use standard charging methods, the provided charger is always best to ensure battery longevity and safety.
While you can find many foreign-owned brands on Amazon, Gobi Heat offers the value, style and reliability that come with an American-owned and warrantied brand. With Gobi Heat you get the peace of mind knowing you can call them directly and get the support you may need.
Additionally, our collection is designed with both fast-heat function and fashion in mind, ensuring you feel warm and look cool.
Not at all! The battery packs are designed to be lightweight and compact. They fit snugly in a dedicated pocket, ensuring you hardly notice it's there (but you will notice when you’re basking in the delightful warmth!).
