For those into winter sports, or construction workers who have to spent time in the cold, the heated jacket is technology at its finest. The most common heated jackets are powered by rechargeable lithium or nickel batteries. The heat wiring tends to be concentrated on the back of the jacket and in the chest area. Many heat jackets have adjustable settings. Note that a heated jacket will be heavier than a conventional one. Also note that not all heat jackets are suitable for extreme cold and not all heat jackets are machine washable, though some of them are waterproof. Be sure to read the instruction manual thoroughly before use.
