    great for winter golf
    October 20, 2017
    I bought this for my brother after much research. He is a winter golfer in the Chicago area, weather permitting. The extra neck warming area is what sets this vest apart from others

    Great for golf!

    Bought this for my husband to wear on the golf course. Started off with the vest on high and turned it off at the turn! No bulk to interfere with swing.

    Great product!

    I purchased this heated vest for my father-in-law. After a recent cancer surgery, he could not stay warm regardless of how many clothes he piled on. He's an avid outdoorsman and loves attending local high school basketball games. He stayed so cold he could not enjoy himself and had started giving up on some activities. After a couple of months, it finally dawned on me to look at Gerbing heated vests like I once used when I was riding motorcycles all the time. Was glad to see that a rechargeable battery vest was available. That was the perfect choice.

    When the vest arrived at my house, I made sure it was fully charged (took about 3 hours the first time from 1 LED showing on the level) and we took it to him. He was excited when it started heating up within a few minutes and he could feel how well it covered his back, which is where he's mostly struggling with being cold. He got a bit choked up when he realized that the vest was going to help him.

    For my father-in-law, the heated vest was much more than a comfort item. This lets him get out and enjoy the things that he loves. It truly helped him both physically and mentally.
    • Very well made vest!
    • Functional and stylish.
    • The vest is VERY comfortable.
    • Thin enough to wear underneath other clothing if needed but is warm even if the heat function is not used.
    • Wind proof and water repellant. Great features to assist in keeping you warm.
    • The heating wires are tiny and are not stiff at all when moving around. You don't even notice them.
    • Good coverage of the heated areas on the front, back and neck. The heated areas are large and cover across the entire chest and back. They extend down to just below the sternum.The collar is heated! How cool is that? The photos accurately depict the coverage area.
    • Battery pack charges in about 3 hours, which I think is reasonable.
    • Battery is small and light. Not bulky or cumbersome at all.
    • Extra battery packs are available if you need heat for a longer period of time.
    • The connection between the battery and the vest connector seems well built and reinforced. Should withstand many years of use.
    • The button has a "click" feel when pressed which makes it easy to change the heat settings without looking at the battery.
    • The charger is small and can be tucked away in a pocket, overnight bag or glove box.
    • Personally, the length of time that heat is provided, regardless which setting you use, seems very reasonable.
    • Good utilization of indicator LEDs and button. Disconnected from vest, a button press shows the battery level. Connected to the vest it indicates, and changes, the heating level.
    • Easy, straight-forward operation. Great for my aging father-in-law.
    • No instructions included. But, the product description on the web site tells you all the needed information.It's not difficult anyway.
    • No washing instructions are included and it's not as straight-forward as you might think. Again, they're available for download from the Gerbing site.
    • The battery pack has to be removed from it's own zippered pocket to see the indicator LEDs. With careful battery placement the button can be pressed to change heat settings without having to see the battery. A clear window on the pocket would let you see the LEDs but might sacrifice comfort.
    • A 12v car charger would be nice but is not included. I bought my father-in-law a small power invertor for his truck which will solve that problem.

    Warm, but barely heated
    January 8, 2020
    I live in Alaska and I got this vest as a gift to go under my motorcycle jacket on the chilly fall and spring rides. I figured until my bike got out of storage I’d try it out just around town, taking my kids to the bus stop, etc. the fit and feel is really good and it has some decent insulating properties without the heater, but the actual heating elements are a joke. I can run this at full heat under a jacket walking around a store and can barely feel it. I also have another brands heated jacket, with much the same material, and I have to turn that to medium or low because it gets too hot. If I walk outside (even with another jacket over the vest) I can’t feel the heat at all. Good vest, very poor heating. Probably just stick to my thermal gear for rides this year.
    • Good fit
    • Decent insulating material
