What Are Heated Gear? What Types Are There?

The need to keep warm is always difficult to ignore when engaging in various activities such as sports and work in cold weather. Examples include motorcycle riding, downhill skiing, diving, winter biking and snowmobiling, hiking, and construction workers and carpenters working outdoors. Outdoor heated clothing is designed to meet your need for warmth.

Since the London Olympics, athletes have also started using heated clothing to keep their bodies warm and in good shape before competition.

1. What are outdoor heated clothing?

Outdoor heating clothing generally refers to clothes heated by charging batteries, so they can also be called electric heating clothing. There are many types of outdoor heating clothes, mainly using 5V, 7.4V, 12V batteries, and the batteries can be recharged. At present, the most popular products are mainly heating jackets, heating vests, electric heating gloves and heating socks.

2. Why do you need to heat your clothes outdoors?

Ordinary warmth works by blocking the cold through clothing, reducing heat loss and trapping body heat. But if the thermal clothing gets wet from sweat or rain, or if a person stops exercising, ordinary means of keeping them warm may not keep them warm.

With heated clothing, a person can stay warm even when they are resting, not generating significant heat, or when their jacket is damp from sweat.

3. What are the types of outdoor heating clothes?

There are many types of heated clothing, classified by clothing: heating jacket, heating vest, thermal underwear, heating pants, heating shoes, heating gloves, heating socks, heating insoles, etc.

According to the voltage classification: 5V, 7.4V, 12V.

Heated clothes with 5-volt batteries allow people to use a universal power bank to heat clothing and charge personal electronics.

7.4 volt heated clothes are the most common type of heated clothes battery system and are rechargeable.

While the 12-volt heated clothes run on a power bank, they are also designed to be used on motorcycles and draw power from the vehicle's battery. Since they use a higher voltage than a 7.4v system, they are more powerful and thus can heat larger areas at higher temperatures.

Heated gears are most commonly used on the hands and feet, which are the areas most likely to suffer from cold or frostbite in severe cold. As a result, many heated clothing manufacturers produce a wide range of heated gloves, mittens, socks, and boot liners. Heated clothing such as vests, coats or gloves that heat and insulate the body serve motorcyclists and downhill skiers.

All in all, outdoor heated clothing can be used in a wide range of applications, and it is also loved by everyone.
