Choosing clothes depending on the weather is a mundane activity that everyone undergoes on a daily basis. We put little thought into it and do basically what everyone does. During winter, we put on heavy fabric and wear light clothing during the summer.
However, with the advent of modern technology, you can now have self-heating apparel for the winter, meaning that you wouldn’t need to put on a couple of sweaters and a jacket just to feel warm. The 8K Flexwarm jacket basically allows you to adjust the temperature to a desired level during the cold season.
Manufactured by 8K Flexwarm, a company that focuses on heated wear for both men and women, this jacket is designed just like a normal jacket but provides more warmth when needed. It is visually appealing with an athletic cut which suits those who want to go skating in very cold weather. The Flexwarm’s standard two hand pocket provide ample space to tuck in your hands for extra warmth. It also comes with internal pockets that you can use to stash away small items such as your phone, keys, or earphones, among others.
How does it work?
This jacket features a hidden set of heating elements that draw power from a USB battery pack. When the heating elements are activated, you will get temperatures of up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit in a space of around six minutes. The battery pack has a power rating of 7,500mAh and can work continuously for about 6 hours. If these hours arent enough for you, you may need to swap out the battery with a larger one connected through the available USB port and into the zipped pocket of your Flexwarm 8K clothing.
Interestingly, you can pair your 8K Flexwarm jacket with your smartphone via Bluetooth. Once paired up, you will be able to remotely set the temperatures as well as activate different heating zones of your jacket to meet your heat demands. These include the chest, belt, neck and back regions, which you can switch on independently or concurrently. Unlike the polar heated shirt, you have more heating pads with this clothing. Flexwarm’s app is available for both Android and iOS users for free.
There are two types of Flexwarm heated clothes for men and women –the gilet and the jacket. All coats carry the same properties when it comes to heating with the only difference coming in prices. Jackets are pricier because of the fabric and the heating pads used. Both jackets and gilets come with a carry bag plus a two-year warranty.
