    Default Heated Vest?

    Hey guys I stumbled across this site the other day www.heatedoutdoors.com and I was hoping that there is somebody who has tried one of these vests out. For a $150 I should just order it but I have never heard of this site or the company that makes the product. Thanks.

    I have this brand and really like it. http://coreheat.net/Products/Products.html#Vests The larger battery that is an option is much better.

    They had some sort of heated vests at Costco last year. I got one for the Mrs to entice her to snowmachine more. She's kind of whiney about being cold and she really likes the vest which runs on two 9 volts IIRC. I don't recall the brand name.

    Personally, I think equipment like this is the cat's meow. But I dread being in the position to really need the benefits and having the battery run out.

    They need a cigarette lighter charging attachment. I generally don't have a problem staying warm but I bet my wife would love one!!

    I used to skoff at stuff like this, but now I have heated seats in a car I often wonder what else I have been missing. It'd be kinda cool to have a heated coat and pants for those really long river runs or Denali Hwy runs on a sled. BTW, you can get Arctic Cat sleds with heated seats on some models now

    They make seat heaters that you can install during a re-cover job. My cat ATV seat ripped this year so that little upgrade is planned for this winter!
