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.

Although winter hasn't officially begun, now's the perfect time to stock up on warm clothing essentials that you can keep on hand throughout the coming season. One shopper-approved pick has already become a trending item, and risen to the top of Amazon's Movers and Shakers list with a 15,800 per cent spike in sales.

The Lightweight Men’s Heated Vest and Lightweight Women’s Heated Vest from FTVOGUE are both on sale right now when you apply a $20 coupon, bringing their price down to $150.

How does it work?

The Lightweight Heated Vest uses ultra-thin carbon fibre heating elements across the abdomen and back in order to provide gentle warmth. The battery-operated heating system offers up to 15 hours of use on a single charge, so you can enjoy the outdoors all day without worrying about losing power.

The vest offers three heat settings that allow the wearer to choose their comfort level 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 4.5-star rating from customers, these insulated vests might be just the thing to keep you warm through the last few weeks of winter.

“The vest is amazing,” shared one reviewer, who added that it heats up “less than 20 seconds” and provides ample heating to the “back, neck and front pockets.”

One shopper added that this vest “works great” for their evening walks, while another shared that it “solved the problem” of working outdoors in cold temperatures.

While the jacket does come with a rechargeable battery pack, it requires its own proprietary battery for heat, That means you won't be able to swap it out for another power bank once the battery dies, which may be inconvenient if you plan on using it for long stretches at a time without access to a recharging station.

The verdict

If you’re looking for an innovative way to keep warm in cold weather, the Lightweight Heated Vest from FTVOGUE is a solid choice. Worn on their own or with layers, they provide a comfortable and functional take on outerwear.

While it's effective at keeping you warm and toasty, you may just want to ensure that you always have time to charge your vest after each use since there's no option to swap out its battery pack.
