If you’re the type of person who hates being cold, you’ll likely do everything in your power to stay warm during the winter months. Having a good-quality coat is a must in many parts of the country, but when it’s really freezing out, even the best coat is no match for brutal temperatures.

But what if your coat had a built-in heater inside? Thanks to Midwest-based apparel company Ororo, you can get vests, coats, fleeces and sweatshirts with rechargeable battery heating devices inside.

Wow! As someone who has battled Midwest winters my entire life, this sounds like a dream come true. Their apparel offers heating in different areas of the body with four different heating levels, and the battery lasts for about eight hours. If it’s not quite cold enough for the personal heater, you can still wear it as a regular, non-heated jacket. Their whole collection is available on Amazon, where you’ll find pieces for men and women in multiple styles.

Their most popular item is their Women’s Slim Fit Heated Jacket, which has a solid four-star rating with 304 reviews. The jacket features a soft-shell fabric exterior with fleece lining and a detachable hood. It generates heat on both sides of your chest and across your mid-back. It’s machine-washable and comes with a one-year warranty.


“I tend to be cold when others aren’t, so not only do I use it outside, but it’s become my secret weapon in cold conference rooms, at the movie theater, the grocery store, and other places where it’s too cold for me,” reads one review.

“This jacket isn’t bulky at all yet completely windproof, which I tested downtown Chicago right next to Lake Michigan,” reads another. “I don’t think the battery is too heavy at all. It actually doesn’t bother me one bit. So very happy I purchased this.”

Some of the reviews do point out that the battery can only be charged with the provided charger, so it’s essential to bring it with you if you bring the jacket on a trip, and some felt the battery was a bit heavy as well.
