A Guide to the Best Heated Apparel for Fall

The fall is upon us, and the cold winter months are not far behind. You love being out and about, but the cold inhibits what you do and how long you stay outside. 

When you think about apparel for fall, check out the heated apparel that will keep you warm and toasty.

We have put together a list of the best-heated apparel to make sure you can enjoy being outdoors in the fall and still be nice and warm.

This lightweight women's vest is both insulated and heated. It has a sleek design that gives a tailored look to the vest. 

The battery that heats the vest is an external one but fits within the vest itself. Two side pockets are zippered to give added security to the items you place inside. 

Made of water-resistant polyester, the exterior of the vest will help keep you dry. This helps with wind-resistance too. 

Inside the vest is a polar fleece stretchable fabric. Four carbon fiber heating panels provide the heat to keep you warm on a cold day. 

They are located on the collar, mid-back, and underneath the two pockets, which also helps to keep your hands warm. 

The lithium battery and charger come with the vest. It also has a USB port that can charge your phone if needed. 

The Ororo's battery will last about four or five hours on a medium setting and two to three on high. 

If you have the vest on low, it can last up to ten hours on a single charge. Great for walking the dog, for the tailgate party, or any other outdoor activity. 

The vest fits well under a jacket, and you can wear it to work if you have a cold office. A bonus is that the vest is machine washable.

The Ororo comes in one color, black, with a red zipper.

A light and comfortable jacket, and is so easy to be compressed to take along on any trip. Made to be water-resistant, the Ororo men's softshell jacket is made from polyester. 

Besides being water-resistant, it will also block the wind effectively. The lightweight puffer filling provides extra insulation to keep the warmth contained within. 

The three heating zones on this jacket are strategically located; one on the back and two on the left and right side of the chest area. 

A detachable hood gives you extra protection from wind and rain. Control the three heat settings (low, medium, high) with a one-touch LED button on the front of the jacket itself. 

The jacket heats up quickly and will work for up to ten hours on the low setting. There is a USB port to use if you need to charge your smartphone, which is handy if needed. 

The Ororo is also a stylish jacket for wearing without using the heating feature. The jacket is black with a blue-backed zipper. 

Battery and charger come with this machine-washable men's jacket.

It can be hard to keep your feet warm, especially in the wintertime when you are out of doors. 

One reason for this is that your heart has to pump blood all the way to your feet. You lose heat through your extremities, so your hands and your feet get cold quickly. 

By the time the heart pumps blood to your feet, the blood is at its coolest temperature. Your socks and footwear help, but they only trap the heat; they don't provide additional warmth. 

Heated socks can generate the heat that your feet need. The Global Vasion’s electric rechargeable heated socks will help to warm up your feet and keep them that way. 

The soft and stretchy knitted material has a padded and reinforced heel and toe. The carbon fiber heating elements are durable. 

A handy pocket on the top of each sock holds the battery so not to interfere with the socks' fit. 

Three levels of heat, low, medium, and high, give you the choice of temperature settings. 

You can expect to get six to seven hours of heat from the low setting, five to six on medium, and three to four hours on high. 

These socks are great for hunting, skiing, ice fishing, or hiking. They are also helpful for those who have circulatory issues and perpetual cold feet. 

These socks are suitable for either men or women. You should hand wash the socks and let them air dry.

A lightweight fleece heated vest from PROSmart will help to keep you warm in the cold weather. 

Great for the winter months when running errands around town or when participating in outdoor activities. 

The PROSmart vest will keep you toasty while sitting in the bleachers rooting on your favorite team. 

If you are always on the cold side, wear the vest indoors in your own home. Slip the vest on instead of turning the thermostat up. It will save you money and keep you comfortable. 

Carbon fiber elements generate heat across the core body areas. Elements in the back of the vest and two areas in the front and collar help encompass you in warmth.  

Select one of three heat levels by pressing a button on the vest's front. That will give you a low, medium, and high setting. 

The fleece material is anti-static. The fleece also holds the heat in to make for a toasty and comfortable feel. 

Recharge the batteries up to 800 times. You can also use the USB port in the vest to charge your cell phone. 

The battery will give you up to 10 hours of use at the low setting. Machine washable, but air dry.

The Meetyoo, or “meet the better you” as the brand likes to say, is a set of men's thermal underwear and compression suit in one. 

Made from 92% polyester and 8% spandex, this set is designed with a four-way stretch. 

The fabric is also a moisture-wicking material that helps to prevent sweat from rendering your clothes wet after any type of exertion. 

The material also lessens the friction between the garment and your skin. This set is ideal for running, cycling, hiking, hunting, or any other outdoor activity. 

Put on a pair before going out to shovel the drive, and you will be warm. Great for tailgating in the fall months or even walking the dog on cold mornings. 

Wear a set to bed to keep warm and toasty throughout the night. Just know that this men's underwear set has no fly opening. 

The Meetyoo comes in black, blue, grey, green, and camo.

Try this hat on for size! The Autocastle sports a 7.4 rechargeable li-ion battery and has three heat settings, high, medium, and low. 

You will get about six to seven hours of heat on the low setting, four to five on medium, and three to four on high. 

The Unisex cap is made from acrylic fabric and has a polyester lining. This is a good hat for snowmobiling, skiing, building snowpeople, or any outdoor activity. 

Reviewers who bought the hat said that it was warm and cozy even when they were not using the battery. Hand wash and air dry this heated hat for best results.

So far, we have reviewed jackets, vests, socks, and hats that warm you up, but life outdoors would not be complete without something to warm your hands. 

It can be miserable when your hands get cold because they tend to stiffen up. It is hard to bend your fingers when they get cold, making it hard to do anything when you are outside. 

The Moliter heated gloves solve that problem. Made for men or women, the gloves are 100% polyester knit with TPU membrane. (this is thermoplastic polyurethane) 

The TPU makes the gloves waterproof and anti-slip. Both durable and breathable, the fabric is still soft and comfortable. 

The glove interior's palms and fingers have a heating wire powered by six AA batteries that you provide. (three for each glove)

You can expect to get about six hours of warmth to your hands while enjoying winter activities like camping, snowboarding, hunting, hiking, or carrying in wood for the fireplace. 

The great feature of these gloves (besides warming your hands) is that you will not need to take them off to use a device that has a touch screen. 

The palms of the gloves have gripper dots that allow you to answer your phone without having to take your gloves off. 

The gloves have an adjustable wrist strap too.

If you need heated pants that don't look like they are heated pants, the Fernida is for you. 

The pants definitely don't look like long johns or insulated pants but will provide you with the warmth you need while in a cold environment. 

If you have an outdoor job where you need to stay warm or enjoy winter activities, the Fernida will keep you nice and toasty. 

Made from a spandex and cotton blend, these pants are soft and comfortable. 

Designed with a TPU heating sheet, the pants include ten heating zones, five in the front, and five in the trousers' back. 

You will feel the heat across your stomach, your fanny, thighs, and calves both front and back. 

Use them skiing, ice fishing, hiking, or any other activity that you need the extra warmth to enjoy what you are doing. 

These pants are also machine washable, but line dry. Sizes will fit both men and women.

Ororo (say that fast five times!) has made a zippered hoodie that is heated but looks much like a traditional hoodie. 

The cotton fabric exterior is lined inside with warm fleece, so the hoodie is warm even without the elements turned on. 

The material is lightweight, and the heating elements blend with the fabric, so it does not look bulky or feel like the material is stiff. 

Those carbon fiber heating elements are placed on both sides of the chest in front and are criss crossing along the back. 

Three heat settings of low, medium, and high will give you about three hours, six hours, and ten hours of heat, respectively. 

Like the Ororo heated jacket, the hoodie has the Ororo symbol on the chest, and that is how you control the temperature of the hoodie. 

Some purchasers are not fond of the fact that this button lights up when the hoodie is on, but it doesn’t detract from how the hoodie operates. 

The battery is 7.4 V with a USB port for charging your smartphone. 

The battery for the hoodie will plug into an inside pocket near the bottom designed to hold the battery. 

There are two pockets for your hands. Made from 44% cotton and 56% polyester; the hoodie is easy to care for as it is machine washable. 

Just put the hoodie in a mesh laundry bag and wash on gentle. Only air or line dry.

CONCLUSION

There is no need to struggle in the cold when there are so many options for heated apparel. 

Whether you like to wear them inside and keep your thermostat down or wear them when you do outside chores, heated garments will make life easier.

They will also encourage you to get out and enjoy the activities you like in winter, but you didn't participate in because of the cold. 

Heated garments will give you the extra warmth you need to stay out and have fun skiing, ice fishing, or sitting in the bleachers. You will not have to be hindered by the cold any longer!
