As most of Ontario faces winter storm or blizzard warnings, many people are reevaluating the quality of their winter gear. From winter coats and boots to hats and gloves, there's nothing like a blizzard to remind you that your current outdoor attire isn't up to snuff.
Amazon Canada is currently offering shoppers the chance to save up to 30 per cent on battery-powered heated winter gear from Venustas, including their unisex winter jacket as part of their latest Deal of the Day.
The catch? If you're looking to shop this deal on warm winter clothes, you'll have to hurry. This limited-time sale is only available until tonight at midnight PST (3 a.m. EST).
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 10 hours of use on a single charge, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day without worrying about losing power. Venustas offers both unisex, men's and women'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
Venustas's heated jacket has earned a 4.3-star rating based on more than 1,100 customer reviews. Amazon shoppers have called the battery-powered jacket "worth the money" for anyone who's an avid outdoorsman or who has a particularly low tolerance to colder temperatures.
One shopper said the jacket has been a big help while taking their dog on daily winter walks without feeling "miserable" from the cold.
"I’m so happy with this jacket,” they said. “I would give this one 10 stars if I could.”
Others have said that the quality and design are “beyond” expectations. The jacket itself is lightweight and the heating units are undetectable inside the “water and wind resistant” jacket.
“It amazes me how quickly it heats up,” they added.
“It helps keep my back and chest warm,” one ski instructor wrote. “[It] was amazing for my work spending many hours outdoors exposed to the cold.”
Although there are more than 800 five star reviews, there are still some things to consider before you buy. Some shoppers have said that it's important to follow the size guide and size up if you want a looser fit to layer winter clothing. Others have said that the jacket was "thinner than expected" and have said that if you're planning to use the jacket on its highest temperature setting, expect to only have about two to three hours of battery power at a time.
If you're looking for an innovative way to brave winter temperatures comfortably, Venustas battery-powered heated jacket might be for you. However, if you're planning to spend all day outside in sub-zero temperatures, you may want to opt for a thicker jacket, since the battery charge won't last beyond 10 hours at the lowest temperature setting.
