Arrow Heated Vest

Any of you have or use a battery or rechargeable heated vest?

If so, what brand?

What has been the battery life?

Does it really get warm enough to stay warm in the blind/field?

(Yes, these old bones are getting cold!)

As a matter of fact, I DID do a search for "heated vest" and got nothing, so I must have done something wrong. Thanks for that thread.

Are you set on title or entire thread? The title has vests not vest. Pulled up for me.

Out of curiosity I had to see for myself.

I have the Milwaukee vest and itís pretty nice. The other day it was 14 degrees here and I had it and a thin hardshell jacket over it and stayed warm.

On a side note, itís pretty nice if you have a bad back and just use it as a back warmer thingy.

I did buy more batteries though.

I saw another thread on here somewhere, a guy mentioned you could use vagisil as a hand warmers as an alternative to the zippo warmers.

My FaceBook timeline is getting bombed with multiple ads for heated vests for around $40-$45, and they look nice; lots of info and pictures; machine washable, etc. I have been tempted to pull that trigger, but I am sure the shipping would be on a slow boat from China and would work fine for about 3 days, then quit working! I want one for the next hunting trip.

Seen those too. My thoughts are the same

I would of already bought one of the Milwaukee ones but they don't come go to 4xl. Maybe if I squeezed into a 2xl or 3xl the heat would melt the weight right off

I have a Pnuma heated vest that I wear over a base layer and under wool when it is really cold. I can feel the warmth when I touch it directly but not through the base layer. I know it is keeping me warmer but its not hot like a hand warmer.

Well, I was unable to find any store in Longview with the Milwaukee heated vest in stock.

I went ahead and ordered one, so we will see. I am a little concerned that there were some negative reviews, although there were good reviews also.

Please let us know. Very interested. If you prefer to pm. Curious what you went with , price. Battery included , etc. I have only seen ones that cover top to mid back and chest, not whole abdomen area as well. Open to if anyone has seen such a vest.

I have it . I hunt in the open air with a tree stand. 1 battery per sit. Amazon has battery deals pretty cheap. Think I have like 5 or 6 batteries to make it through a weekend. Can of course build a bigger better battery if needed. It def will add time to your sit but alone it wont keep you warm. A heated seat though works wonders. Combined I sat through about a 5 hour sit in near zero temps.

I ordered the Milwaukee Axis vest for $179 which includes a 1.5 amp battery and charger. I also wish the heating elements covered the lower back and stomach area, but the only ones I found that did that had some pretty negative reviews. I will be wearing mine under a jacket.

If this one works reasonably well, I will get another higher amp battery. I am just cold natured (in spite of the sarcastic, smart arse remarks like below!!! ), but my sits these days are enclosed in a Krivoman blind or Ranch Kings, so heaters are not out of the question.

I've got a hoodie with headphones that go through the drawstrings...you know, in case you have some Duke Ellington on your jitterbug and want to listen to some music while you're in the blind.
