The vest is just as advertised and more comfortable than expected. The heating element works well and the vest itself keeps the heat close to the body. The FNDN staff are absolutely wonderful and, with all the problems stemming from the CoronaVirus pandemic, they were as responsive as could be expected. This is my second purchase from them and I will definitely buy from them again
My dad turned 88 years old this past year. He’s been getting real cold, and seemed to never stay warm , unless he was wrapped up in a blanket. This was the perfect gift for him. 1st got him a heated vest, then a pair of heated gloves. He love’s both. Best gift he could have gotten. Thanks
Birthday present. I race sled dogs and have the socks and gloves! Love them and they were given to me last year as a birthday present. This year I bought the vest for my partner/handler, he loves it! His birthday is October 31, mine January 22, we canoe race, snowshoe race and trail run competitive so all your gear works well for us. I will send a photo when I have my phone handy!
Great Product and Customer service
The new PRO vest works GREAT! I did not originally buy my vest from FNDN and when I received it, it was not the vest I ordered. I contacted Travis from FNDN and even though he didn't sell the vest to me, he let me return the wrong vest to him and shipped me the right product. What great customer service! Thanks Travis...
Now I am staying warm in New Jersey.....
I'm a high school football coach. We're out in all sorts of weather. I love being able to fire up the heater on my vest and stay warm and comfortable. I even let the kids charge their phones with the extra USB port on the battery bank.
The vest is a really good quality, great deal for the price. It would be hard to find another one like it, with the heating elements, the zipper pockets, and the extra USB. I bought one a while back but this one is the new and upgraded version, and it shows. Great product.

2.0 way to go!
I believe this is the second-generation vest that I purchased this last time. I also have the first-generation one. I am very impressed by how much this company seems to have taken advantage of user feedback in their new design.
There is a new heat button and new finish, which is very nice. The overall quality of the vest itself has been greatly improved. The zipper pockets and the new phone pocket improve the utility of the vest. I bring my phone on fishing trips and it's useful to be able to store it in a dedicated pocket, so I always know where it is and have it within easy reach. My keys and wallet and essentials get safely zipped away in the other pockets. And if my phone runs low on battery, the newly-designed battery bank can accommodate the extra charging cord because there is another USB slot.
All in all, a great improvement. I will definitely be buying generation three if and when it becomes a reality.
No more dead phone battery
The charge lasts almost all day. If I can get a quick charge in at lunchtime, I can make the heat last all day long. Very cool that it has a separate pouch for the battery so I can use the other pocket for my phone. I take a short charging cord, stick one end into the battery and the other in my phone, put the cord behind my back, and I'm a walking charging station. Awesome.
I charge this vest up while walking to work in the morning , and it's ready to go by the time I get there (hour commute). I work construction rain or shine. We're off a lot of the time in the winter, so I don't need a heavy coat. The vest is perfect. And if it turns out that the day is colder than I expected, I just turn up the heat to the next setting.
It really makes me feel like I'm wearing the future when I charge my phone using my clothes and push the button to turn on my built-in vest heater. Crazy!! I love it though.
There are three heat settings, so if the weather changes quickly, you're all set! I would not put this through the dryer, though, just as a warning.
Easy spring boarding vest
This would make a perfect gift for a skier or snowboarder for the spring when its no longer blistering cold. The vest zips up easily over top of other clothes and adds insulation and heat. It's well-made, feels durable. Good product, I like it.
Very happy thank you fndn ;)
I'm a larger gal, but this vest fits great. The carbon fiber heating pads are in just the right places to give you heat right where you want them. I love that I don't even need a scarf because of the heating pad on my neck.
I have done a ton of research and actually bought and returned some other heated vests. This vest works great and is by far the nicest materials out of the others I’ve tested. Good job
