Best Heated Gear Under $100
Win the lottery? Me neither. But I still want to stay warm this winter, so here’s a breakdown of the best budget-busting heated gear available for under $100.
Let’s start with an easy one: additional rechargeable batteries. When you’re out killing it in flag football and the batteries in your base layers start to die, slap in another battery that you’ve smartly already charged and keep playing. If your heated gear uses a USB port for charging, a USB battery pack is a versatile choice.
Keeping your hands and head warm is second nature, but what about your cold feet? I once got a mild case of frostbite on my toes and believe me, that is never happening again. The Lectra Battery Heated Sox from Nordic Gear is an inexpensive solution to what can be an expensive problem. Don’t like wool socks? We’ve got you covered with the ActionHeat AA Battery Heated Cotton Socks.
Looking for lightweight, upper body warmth? Gerbing Gyde has options for both men and women with their Core Heat 7V Heated Vest. Layer the vest under a jacket or wear over your favorite base layer. The chest and back heating panels chase away the chills.
Ride a motorcycle, snowmobile or UTV? Pick up a pair of Gerbing EX Pro 12V Heated Gloves at a price that won’t make your wallet scream. Hook these gloves up to your ride’s battery for all-day heating. You owe it to your digits to keep them cozy and flexible on the grips, and these gloves really deliver.
You don’t wear the ActionHeat 12V Heated Seat Cushion, but you will still appreciate the soothing warmth to your backside if your car, truck, or SUV does not have heated seats installed. Just plug into the cigarette outlet and enjoy two levels of relaxing heat any time of the year. In a similar vein is a Heated Stadium Seat. Take one along to the next home football or soccer game, and you’ll be smiling all the way to V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!
I’m always on the lookout for a warm mid-layer shirt. A real winner is the ActionHeat 1/2 Zip Pullover, available in two colors. Zip all the way up when the temps are really chilly, or when the day warms up a bit, open the zipper to cool you off. Large heat panels on the chest and back work to keep your core toasty. ActionHeat makes a version for the ladies with heating panels in the collar and lower back. Heaven! The ActionHeat Pullover Shirt is great for when you’re out running errands and don’t need a bulky jacket.
You don’t have to break the bank to stay warm this winter with these penny-pinching battery-powered heated items. Pick up one today and change your outlook on the season.
