UNBOXED: Reviewing Mobile Warming's Performance Heated Apparel
We've officially reached the heart of the fall and the colder weather is starting to creep in. Luckily for us Philadelphians, the warmer weather stuck around well into September and the better part of October. But once the weather dropped below 50, I knew it was time to give the Mobile Warming Sierra Women's jacket a try.
This was my first experience with heated apparel and I have to admit I was surprised at how “normal” this jacket looked. Aside from the small (but bright) orange logo on the arm and the heat indicator on the front, you’d never know that it had a 7.4volt Lithium-Ion battery inside. The battery, which charged up rather quickly, was only a couple inches big and fairly light. It tucked away neatly inside a compartment in the right-side pocket and never felt obtrusive.
Once the battery was situated and the jacket was turned on, I was able to pair my Sierra Women’s jacket to the MW Connect app via Bluetooth. Pairing was simple and I liked that I could monitor the battery status without needing to fish it out my pocket. You can also add other Mobile Warming garments to the app and adjust the heat settings individually for each one.
