While long johns and thick knits may be the gold standard when it comes to beating winter chills, heated clothing offers a new way to stay warm at the coldest temperatures.
Even though winter is almost over, now's the perfect time to stock up on warm clothing essentials that you can keep on hand throughout the year - especially if they’re on sale. Right now you’ll find a selection of heated clothing for men and women on sale as one of Amazon Canada’s Deals of the Day.
The entire line of jackets and vests designed by Venustas is highly rated among Amazon shoppers, while the Windproof Electric Insulated Coat with Detachable Hood is one top pick that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe.
How does it work?
The Electric Insulated Coat uses ultra-thin carbon fibre heating elements across the shoulders, back, and chest in order to provide gentle warmth. The battery-operated heating system offers up to 11 hours of use on a single charge, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day without worrying about losing power. Venustas offers both women’s and men’s sizes that allow the wearer to choose from three different heat settings with just the press of a button.
Despite their high-tech heating, the jackets are actually a low-maintenance article of clothing and can be thrown into the washer and dryer along with the rest of your laundry.
What people are saying
With a 4.4-star rating from hundreds of satisfied customers, these insulated jackets might be just the thing to keep you warm through the last few weeks of winter.
“I'm very impressed how warm it kept me when we went to the mountains to have our Christmas photos taken. I easily get cold but surprisingly I didn't complain while wearing this jacket. I was comfortable despite being outdoors for a couple hours,” shared one reviewer.
“I got this as a gift and I love it! You can use it as an everyday coat or use it with the warmer,” shared another. “It's a nice quality and fits perfectly. I'm very tall so I got a size bigger just for arm length... I would recommend this item to anyone!”
While the jacket can run for up to 11 hours at a time, it’s important to note that this number changes depending on the heat setting that’s in use.
“Wonderful jacket,” shared one reviewer. “The only drawback is that the battery only lasts for 3.5 hours if worn on the highest setting the entire time. Other than that, my daughter said it works very well. She was snowmobiling for hours in 5 degree Fahrenheit weather and said it kept her warm with her other coat over it.”
If you’re looking for an innovative way to keep warm in cold weather, the entire line of Venustas outerwear is a solid choice. Worn on their own or with layers, these jackets provide a comfortable and functional take on outerwear.
While it's effective at keeping you warm and toasty, you may just want to invest in a backup battery pack if you plan on using its highest settings for a prolonged period of time.
