Smart Fabrics Heated Clothing from Gerbing, a company based out of Seattle focuses on bringing you a warm feeling in the coldest times of the year to their customers with high tech heated clothing.Their collection of heated clothing technologies ranges from the more â€˜conventionalâ€™ textile heating systems like insulated copper wires to Micro Wires and Nano Wire heat technology to high tech smart fabrics like Carbon Fiber Heat Technology.
A product that uses the Carbon Fiber technology is the LITE HEATED VEST LINER. As the name implies, it is a light weight vest that radiates a comfy temperature and can be worn under an outer jacket.
The Heated Vest is powered by a 7.4v lithium battery pack which gives 4 hours of heat on the highest setting or over 10 hours on the lowest setting.
Another â€˜warmingâ€™ factor is the low cost of this vest, it comes for just $ 99.- including the battery pack and the charger. Available directly from Gerbing.
If you are in need for getting some additional heat when outdoors, you might want to check out Gerbingâ€™s full system that let the wearer connect the different elements like jackets, pants, gloves and socks (all heated) via their standardized interconnection system – a smart idea that keeps you warm even if you have to be right in the center of the Arctic.
As we mentioned in our previous review of heated clothing, â€˜heatedâ€™ does not mean you will fry in your heated clothing, it will give up a controllable and comfortable amount of warmth. Thatâ€™s why we call such fabrics also â€™smart textilesâ€™
