Welcome To The Warming Store's 2017-2018 Battery Heated Apparel Buyers Guide


Battery heated clothing is a relatively new world in the clothing industry. We understand that, with the ever-expanding offerings from many different manufacturers, making a purchase can be a daunting task. Our heated clothing expects have taken their many years of expertise, and feedback from customers, and compiled it all into this handy guide for those unfamiliar with all that is heated clothing. 


Battery heated clothing offers many different ways to keep warm in the cold. From base layers, that are similar to heated long underwear,  to heated outer layers like battery heated puffer jackets, the best garment depends on the individual who is buying it. If your a person who tends to be a bit cold but just needs something to take the bite out of winter when running errands, then maybe a fleece or softshell vest can work best for you. If your constantly cold and can't handle any cold, then maybe you would be interested in a base layer and a heated puffer vest or jacket. Just like unheated clothing, battery heated clothing works best when used in layers. We hope that the information contained in this article will help you navigate the heated clothing world and find the perfect heated garment solution for your needs. 


Heated Base Layers 

Battery heated base layers are pretty much heated long underwear or low-profile vest liners. Most brands will have the heating elements in the chest and back area, while the base layer pants will have them in the lower back and thigh area. They are best used as an inner layer under your shirt and pants. This will maximize heat retention. The base layers, being closest to the skin, will offer the most noticeable heat production when used properly.

Heated Jackets

Battery heated jackets are a great option when looking for relief from the bitter cold.

The one drawback is that no battery heated jacket will have heated sleeves. Unfortunately, current battery technology is not powerful enough to heat the core and arms effectively for a decent amount of time.
