- Great battery life; get up to 8 hours of run time
- Well-placed heating elements on your chest and back
- Water- and wind-resistant materials keep you warm and dry in any climate
Not the most durable, and the sizes run slightly large.
Design: For those who want a high quality, reliable heated jacket, this is your best pick. Made of 100% polyester, it has a special coating that makes it fully waterproof. The wrists and collar close tightly to keep out wind and water. Thanks to the added layers of insulation, you'll find this is warm even when the heating elements are turned off, but it's lightweight enough that you can wear it anywhere.
The jacket isn't as durable as it could be—a downside to polyester—and you'll find the sizes run a bit large. However, it's fully machine washable (even with the heating elements built-in) and designed with multiple fail-safes so there's no risk of a short circuit while you're wearing it. It's a fairly stylish, good-looking option that will be worth every penny.
Heating: The heating element is powered by a built-in 4400 mAh, 4-volt battery, which can be charged via USB cable. The battery delivers up to 8 hours of run time (on the lowest heat setting), and you get four settings to choose from—easily controlled via the button built into the jacket.
The heaters are built into your chest and mid-back, keeping your torso nice and warm. The heating element spreads out enough that your whole upper body will feel the heat. All you have to do is switch it on, and say sayonara to the chills!
Price: Starting at $135, this is definitely on the pricier side for a jacket, but one of the best-priced heating jackets on our list. It delivers reliability and warmth—the two things you're looking for in a great jacket!
