  • Due to flat profile battery, batteries can be carried in the pocket without feeling the weight or poking into the body
  • Acts as a power hub for others devices

Run other heated apparel


  • Designed to be connected to 12v heated gloves
  • Designed to be connected to 12v heated footwear
  • Designed to run other devices such as a wireless chargers

Mid layer instead of outer shell


  • Heat is closer to the body
  • Continue to use your favourite jacket as your outer shell, without needing to purchase heated jackets for specific working conditions. 
  • Wear under any jackets you currently have.

Designed in House


Designed in house – In order for us to design better or improvement, we have to complete ignore or imitate other similar product on the market, and take the ownership to develop something better. Our heated vest has:

  • Parallel wires that allow for multiple batteries to extend runtime.
  • uses 12v or 16v batteries
  • has multiple connectors for other heated apparel
  • waterproof connector design

All of these features and ideas were originating from our own designs, and many years of experience making heated gloves, and in depth knowledge of battery technology and manufacturing. With our years of experience, we have developed something that no one has.

 


New Tech Apparel to Thaw Cold Canadian Winters! Lightweight vest features three core-heat zones and a discrete lithium power source. Stops shivering cold and radiates warmth, comfort.

About the Design

The vest features a one size fits most design that accommodates the majority of the population. The vest works as a mid-layer, radiating high, medium and low heat. The idea was to make a heated vest that was as versatile as possible - it can even power our glove liners - while keeping the heat close to the core of the body. We created a design that works for as many people as possible, and in as many conditions as possible.

The design is unisex and features expandable sizing, making it one-size-fits-most.

Canadians are experts in cold. We test and develop some of the best heated-wear because of our climate. Everyone loved our heated gloves and wanted to see more.  So we delivered with this new heated vest. It's a game-changer!  We are proud to bring this Canadian product line to the international market.

Too cold in winter?

We found some heated jackets and gloves that could work, but the heat was too weak and didn't last. We needed more power, longer life, and we needed all components to be standard (2.1mm DC connector), interchangeable, flexible, and work well in cold weather. After extensive testing in -25C (-13F) weather in Calgary, Alberta, we have found the right electric fabric heat technology and matched it with the right battery. Now we have a heat-wear system proven to work! Many tradespeople use our products to keep warm on the jobsite.

The Best New Design (Electric Heat Woven into the Fabric)

The old heating technologies are bulky and you can't wash them. They were hard to wear because of poor design, fabric choice, and had copper wire inside the jacket. Our system uses the latest technology carbon fiber as the heating element. It has a soft-touch electronic silicon switch so there are no rigid circuit boards inside. It's soft, flexible, washable, and safe!

Lithium Battery Technology

We have selected the lightest weight, highest output battery possible and built a system that allows it to be interchangeable with different products. Whether you have heated gloves, a vest, or even our high intensity LED lighting systems, you can now use the same battery pack. Our goal is to make a flexible system of products that can be used for multiple purposes.

12v vs 16v battery

If you purely compare the 12v high vs 16v high, the 12v will have a longer run time. However, you should compare the temperatures as well. As you can see from the runtime chart below. The 16v low temperature is equally the same as 12v medium level. As a result, the 16v low had longer runtime compare to 12v Med heat.

If you are running at 16v, you will most like running temperature at low setting. Due to the higher temperature output. If you are running at 12v, you will most like running at high or med setting. When you would you use 16v vs 12v? If you are tradesman or someone that work in extremely cold condition, like -25 – 45c. You should get the 16v battery.
