Anyone try a HEATED VEST ?

Recommended Posts

Always looking to improve warmth on stand, but minimize bulk, layers, etc.   Went to a Cabela's Wooltimate suit last year which was very form fitting and very warm for it's "thickness" which is not bulky at all.     However in the cooler temps, always felt that I needed something more. I wear a light down vest under it but still want a little more warmth when it's 22 degrees or colder. 

I think if I just replace the light down vest with this electric heated vest - problem solved. 

Anybody have something like this?

Check out the pnuma heated vest. Awesome product can get 8 hours on highest setting with 2 batteries. Have a bunch of their stuff great quality and the vest is the best purchase I have made for cold weather hunts

I have one but I also have heated kidney belt which keeps you much warmer than the vest. My vest and belt is made by Garbing and I bought with it battery with remote control. This way it is easy to turn it on and if it adjust the heat level without very little movement. The belt is all I use

I had one didn't like the warmth differential from my body to my legs when it was real cold,I would rather wear layers with good outer wear keeping my whole body  the same temp

didn't consider the belt  - that might just be enough to take that edge off..  Keep the light down vest, use my fleece neck muffler, and the heat belt... Thanks for the tip I will look into it

It is hard to believe, and I wouldn’t without trying, but you are warmer with the belt on. That heat from lower back makes you feel toasty and the belt is wide.

The belt sounds like a great idea :up:When it comes to warmth, nothing beats a loose fitting one piece suit. Add the belt looney suggests and you’ll be golden

I use all makita tools for work so I got makita vest and zip up jacket also. Both work well although sometimes the batteries feel bulky when you're carrying gear.  But it's worth the hassle for warmth it provides

Are you sitting or stalking?

I have a buddy who's got a heated vest and loves it.  I never use one, but I have two different sets of clothing:  one for extended sits and one for stalking.  I cannot stalk in my sitting gear because I'll sweat like it's raining, but I can do some short (30-45 minutes) sits in the stalking gear, but I can also move around and still hunt with it without sweating.
