The Best Heated Vests of January, 2020 – Show Winter Who’s Boss!

Stay Warm and Cozy in the Best Vests

Whilst allowing full flexibility, a battery powered heated vest offers the opportunity to be outdoors in the most severe cold, and yet remain gloriously warm and cozy. With rechargeable batteries, and carbon filament heating elements usually positioned across the chest, or abdomen, and mid to lower back, most vests feature a series of heat settings for personalized warmth, a range of sizes and styles and hand or machine wash options.

So, after standing around in the cold for hours, we bring you our top 3 heated vests

1) Keymao Heated Vest Electric Vest – Men/Women

Keymao Heated Vest Electric Vest USB Charging Heated Vest Washable Heating Vest Intelligent Clothes Warm Winter for Men(Battery Not Included (Free Size - Grey- 5-Gear Temp, One Size)

Overview
With three well placed heated areas across upper and lower back/kidney area, 5 temperature modes, and a rapid initial heat boost, this heated vest feels well-made, and hard wearing.

What We Like
As far as styling goes, this doesn’t check every box for the fashion conscious, but for a high quality, heated vest it most certainly does. The heating elements, being larger than most, spreads the warmth throughout the back and kidney area, allowing any outdoor chores to be done in comfort. Offering 5 heat settings, including a prewarm mode, a battery life of 13 hours on the lowest, and the option to be machine washed, this is a great heated vest.

What Needs Improving
We found the fit, although great across the chest, to be a little tight around the armholes. This isn’t a deal breaker for us, but it might be worth going up a size if you need more arm space.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Keymao have designed an efficient, and comfortable heated vest. Offering 5 heating modes with up to 13 hours of warmth, machine washing and a high quality build, this is an easy recommend.

2) ORORO Lightweight Rechargeable Heated Vest

ORORO Men's Lightweight Heated Vest with Battery Pack (Medium) Black

Overview
Ororo are well known for the quality of their heated wearables, and this lightweight vest lives up to our expectations. Well tailored, with 4 heated areas – upper back and collar, mid back, plus 2 areas on the abdomen, a range of 3 adjustable temperature settings, and the ability to be machine washed, this vest also includes a universal travel adaptor as an added bonus.

What We Like
Both the style and fit of this impressively designed vest are excellent. Coupled with Ororo’s efficient heating elements, offering up to 10 hours of warmth exactly where you need it, we really like this. The fact the fabric is breathable, water resistant, and machine washable just adds to our excitement.

What Needs Improving
The placement of the temperature display – on the inside chest area, makes reading it a little tricky, but the bonuses more than make up for this very minor inconvenience.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is an absolutely awesome heated vest - Ororo have done it again! Warm, well made, stylish, and with a good battery life - perfect!

3) ARRIS Rechargeable Battery Heated Vest

ARRIS Heated Vest 7 Heating Pads Men Women Size Adjustable Electric Heating Clothing for Hiking, Camping, Fishing, Motorcycling with 7.4V Battery

Overview
Offering an impressive 7 heating elements – 4 across the front and the rest over the back, along with fully adjustable sizing panels that just zipper in, or out, this is an unusually designed vest. The 5 heat settings give the Arris vest so much scope for personalization, that the fact it’s machine washable, and has a battery life of up to 20 hours is the icing on the very warm cake.

What We Like
With so many options, we got confused by the zipper system – confusion occurs alarmingly frequently, but as usual, we figured it out, and found the vest to offer a good fit whatever the shape of the body wearing it! A massive 7 heated zones, with 5 temperature settings means that whatever the weather, we were cozy and warm, and with an excellent battery life, there’s nothing to stop us braving the harshest elements.

What Needs Improving
Even with the innovative fitting options, we did find the styling of this vest slightly disappointing – however hard you try, this is not for the fashion conscious. However, does that really matter? We think not!

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

With a range of adjustable fitting options, 7 heat zones, 5 temperature modes and a battery life of up to 20 hours, this is an impressive heated vest, and one to seriously consider.
