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



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


Battery heated clothing offers many different ways to keep warm in the cold. From base layers that act like heated long underwear to heated outer layers such as battery heated puffer jackets, the best garment depends on individual needs. If you just need something to take the bite out of winter while running errands, then a fleece or softshell vest might work best for you. If you're constantly chilled or can't handle any cold, then you might be interested in a base layer and a heated puffer vest or jacket. Just like regular 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 individual needs. 


Heated Base Layers 


Battery heated base layers act as heated long underwear or low-profile heated vest liners. Many brands have heating elements in the chest and back, while base layer pants located the panels at the lower back and thighs. Base layers are best used as an inner layer under your regular shirt and pants. This maximizes heat retention. Base layers, being closest to the skin, offer noticeable heat production when used properly.
