Browning AddHeat Vest

Highlights

Review

Battery powered heating systems arrives on the outdoor scene periodically with great brouhaha, which abates quickly when forecasts do not match reality, cold weather shows up. We have tested variations of heated outerwear none have lived up to the claims. The exception is Browning’s AddHeat™ fleece vest this is the real thing, no gadget, no gimmick, and it works. The heating element is located in the upper back of the vest powered by a small rechargeable Li-ion battery. A Micro-CPU controller offers High, Medium and Low temperature all with the touch of a finger. The Power Pack offers 5.5 hours of continuous heat and shuts off automatically when the vest warms. We have worn on numerous outings stayed warm and with a jacket over the vest; you have a great combination for cold days.
