Doing your best to stay warm this winter is tough, you don’t need to tell us twice. While subduing yourself to frigid temperatures, numerous options seem practical, and anything with down in it tends to be a mainstay in that category. Well, Proof just unveiled a waterproof jacket lined with down and battery-powered heat panels that is surely one of the coolest pieces of outerwear you can throw on this December.
While being lined with down is enough of a sell when looking for a winter jacket, supplying a built-in heater alongside that is all the more reason to give the Volt Jacket a second look. While warmth comes first in these instances, durability through all sorts of climate surely comes next in line, and Proof kept that in mind when coating this piece’s stretch nylon exterior with DWR, ensuring water resistance throughout. Equipped with a trio of battery-powered heat panels, its warmth is reinforced thanks to the jacket’s insulation and shell. While it doesn’t come equipped with a battery, if attached, a 10,000mA battery is capable of lasting between 5 and 8 hours in the harshest of environments with this trailblazing piece. In order to power up your jacket, you will need to download the app that accompanies it.
Retailing for a modest $298, Proof’s Volt Jacket goes to show that you don’t always need to pay outrageous amounts for such an advanced piece of wear — or, in this case, tech. Available at Huckberry in a pair of colors, this new garment is sure to keep you as warm as you want it to this winter.
