Venustas Heated Jacket VS Gobi Heated Jacket, Which One Is Better?

31 Oct 2023

Actually, I don’t know when heated apparel become popular. Last month, I planned an exciting hiking trip with my friend Julia, a professional outdoor enthusiast. Since the weather becomes gradually cold, it’s essential to prepare special winter gear to ensure comfort, warmth, and safety during the trip. However, the problem that troubles me is what clothes I need to take.

So, I posted my question on my social media to look for a lightweight, warm, and comfortable jacket. There are many friends commented on my post and provided a range of options. Also, the most-liked comment is the heated jacket.

Heated Jacket

I was wondering what’s a heated jacket at that moment. After learning, I found it’s one kind of battery powered electric jacket with built-in heating elements to keep the body warm. That sounds awesome! So, I bought two heated jackets to make a try and comparison. One is from Venustas, and the other is from Gobi Heat.

The jacket I pick is the classic style in Venustas’ Store. This Men Heated Jacket 7.4V combines the comfort and warmth to make it a perfect pick for me.

Package

  • 1*Men’s heated jacket 7.4V
  • 1*battery back (including charger)
  • 1*waterproof bag
  • 1*user manual

Features

  • Heating elements. This heated jacket is equipped with 5 carbon heating elements that are strategically placed on the chest, shoulder, and mid-back to provide targeted warmth.
  • Heating setting. 3 adjustable heating levels (low, medium, and high) offers customized warmth. It is easy to switch with an easy-to-access button, which allows you to adjust the heat if you feel too hot or too cold.
  • The 7.4V/5000mAh battery has two output ports. DC port is designed to charge the heated apparel, and the USB port can charge other electric devices. Plus, this battery can ensure this heated jacket to provide up to 8 hours of warmth.

Venustas Heated Jacket

  • Clothing fabric. It’s not entirely waterproof, so I don’t recommend wearing it in the rain. But the shell is made from 100% nylon, which is water-resistant to shield me from light rain or snow.
  • It comes with a detachable hood and zipper pocket to keep the elements out and maintain a fashionable look.

What I like

Of course, the best part I like is the warmth. The warmth is different from what traditional jackets provide. It’s sufficient, lightweight, and comfortable. I’m an outdoorsy people who always go outside in the winter. With this jacket, I feel the warmth in seconds, just like being wrapped in a warm blanket. Plus, the jacket can retain the heat for up to 8-9 hours. I wear it skiing, snowboarding, hiking, or just on walks without feeling any cold.

Also, the jacket is very lightweight. The battery placed on the zipper pocket is small and portable, which is convenient for carrying, and it doesn't add any significant weight or bulk to the jacket. It’s made of a water-resistant shell and insulation to protect me from the elements and keep my body cozy.

This Venustas heated jacket is easy to use. Just plug the cable into the battery port, press the power button, and choose the heated settings you like.

What I dont like

Honestly, this jacket is a great choice, and worth my investment. But it’s not perfect. I usually wear slim-fitted clothes, but the size of this jacket is a little large for me. On the other side, the button light is not visible in the daytime. I think it would be better to put the button inside the jacket.

Another one I bought is a Gobi Mens Heated Jacket. My wife said it’s a warm choice to maintain a fashionable outlook in winter.

Package

  • 1*Men’s heated jacket 7.4V
  • 1*battery back (including charger)
  • 1*user manual

Features

  • 3 Heating elements are strategically placed in the most effective locations. (left*right chest, back)
  • 3 adjustable heating settings allow you to experience the perfect level of warmth.(Low:113° F|Medium:131° F|High:140° F)
  • The 7.4V/6500mAh battery can work up to 10 hours
  • 4 colors available to meet more needs: Black, Grey, Red, and Blue.

What I like

What mostly impressed me was the color when I first saw this men’s heated jacket. To be honest, I've noticed that many heated jackets on the market are primarily available in black. With the recommendation of my wife, I decided to pick one in blue. When I received the package, it’s great to find that the jacket looked better than it did online. My wife said that it highlights my outlook and makes me younger.

Although this heated jacket only has 3 heating zones compared with the Venustas heated jacket, the comfort and warmth provided are impressive. The heating elements are smartly located in the most effective location (chest and back) to provide maximum warmth.

It’s a soft-shell heated jacket that provides wind-resistant and water-resistant ability. When the temperature starts to drop, I can layer it with my sweater or vest for extra warmth. It’s a versatile outwear for outdoor use, whether you are working or playing.

What I dont like

One of the disadvantages is that the battery can add extra weight to the jacket. When I wear it for long periods, I find the battery drags me down and causes a little discomfort. Although the heating temperature is up to 140° F, it’s not breathable.

Both heated jackets provide a good way to stay warm. Based on my shopping experience, I’m satisfied with them because of their excellent performance. However, I usually wear a Vensutas heated jacket because of the effective warmth. You know, I live in Canada where the temperature is low all year round.

All in all, I think they have different features to cater to different needs. If you always live in a cold place, maybe you can choose a Venustas heated jacket because of 5 heating elements. Or if you prefer bright colors to match your daily clothes, Gobi Heat provide a flexible option for you. No matter what you choose, the first thing is to consider your needs and weather conditions.
