Feeling the cold? You need to try the Down X Heated jacket

When the mercury begins to plummet, insulation isn’t always enough. The Down X Heated jacket from Ravean provides extra warmth whenever you need it, along with phone charging.

  • Can technology help me stay cozy this winter? Yes, and we have put together a list of winter warmers to prove the point!
  • Are heated jackets worth the money? If you’re expecting to be out in freezing temperatures, a good heated jacket can make a huge difference to your level of comfort.
  • What is the best heated down jacket? With several adjustable heat pads and a water-repellent coating, the Down X Heated Jacket from Ravean checks all the boxes.

Nature is often difficult to beat. While there are many forms of synthetic insulation, down is still considered to be the best. It is the fluff that allows birds to retain body heat, even in the harshest of winter conditions.

If you can’t improve on nature, you might as well supplement it. That’s the thinking behind the Ravean 12v C6 Jacket. This medium-weight garment combines responsibly sourced down filling with electric heat pads. The combination allows you to stand around in negative degrees Fahrenheit without feeling the chill.

How does a heated jacket work?

Normal, unheated clothing provides warmth by trapping your body heat. The more layers you put on, the less this heat is able to escape. Protective outer layers also ensure that the cold wind can’t penetrate your cozy bubble.

But when the mercury plummets, your body may struggle to provide enough heat. That’s where a heated jacket comes in.

Turn up the heat with the C6 jacket

The Ravean C6 Jacket has thin heat pads built into the breast, the back on either side, and the pockets. Whenever you start getting cold, you simply turn on the pads. The amount of heat can be adjusted with ease, just like using your thermostat at home. On full power, this jacket will keep you warm in -10°F.

More than heat

You can wear the C6 in all conditions

The heat pads draw energy from a curved battery pack that comes with the C6 Jacket. The unique shape allows the pack to sit comfortably against your body.

The C6 will charge your phone

After a full charge, the battery holds enough power to provide 6.5 hours on low heat, 3.5 hours on medium power, and 2.5 hours at maximum output. In addition, you can use the battery to charge mobile devices. With 10,500mAh to play with, you can fill your smartphone three times over.

Thr C6 is surprisingly light

Despite being stuffed with tech, the Ravean C6 weighs only 150 grams. It’s also easy to pack away and safe for machine washing.

“The Ravean 12v C6 heated jacket system keeps you warm where you need it. The heating system is set to warm your back, chest, and pockets. We make it convenient for you to heat where you need it the most.” — Ravean

Responsibly sourced

Now the winter temperatures are starting to bite, this heated jacket from Ravean makes a lot of sense. We particularly like that the down is responsibly sourced and the heating is adjustable.

Future designs

For those of us who would prefer to avoid animal products, we would love to see similar technology in jackets with a different filling.
