A huge hit while visiting their SEMA 2019 booth was the Gearwrench heated jackets. Available in several styles, it’s great to know you have options. These jackets include 3 heating zones: two on the front chest and one on the upper back. Power comes from a removable puck-style battery.
Gearwrench Heated Jackets Features
Three carbon heating elements generate heat powered from a battery with adjustment from three different power settings. The power button sits above the left chest and controls on/off as well as power levels. You can choose from Low, Medium, or High. On Low, the Gearwrench heated jacket delivers heat for up to ten hours. The small battery resides in a zipper-pocket within the jacket, hence charging requires removal of the battery.
4 Models to Choose from Gearwrench Heated Apparel
A Heated Hooded Jacket offers protection from the cold and the wet with a moisture shell on the outside and insulated inner liner. Second is the Fleeced Hooded Jacket that delivers the warmth but without the outer moisture shell. Next, the Heated Full Length Hoodie offers the comfort of your favorite hoodie sweatshirt with the bonus of electric heat. Finally, the Heated Shop Vest offers a lightweight and cooler option and can be worn on the top or as an inner-layer. All of the models include the 3 heating zones and receive power from the same puck-style battery.
