Wear our electrically heated vest liner over your t-shirt and under your jacket to maximize warmth. Connects directly to the 12V battery in your motorcycle, snowmobile, or ATV for non-stop heat. Add a portable battery pack to keep the heat going even when you're not riding.
Leverages ZEPTO® fibre technology; made in France, these heating fibres are so thin you wouldn't be able to notice them if not for their tremendous heat output
ZEPTO® fibres are lighter and heater up faster than the heating wire in our Gen-X3 line of heated clothing
Ergonomically designed to hug the contours of your body
Uniform heat delivered all over the front, back, and collar
Two easily accessible side pockets on the front of the vest to keep a wallet or other essentials
Anti-bacterial, breathable, and water-resistant fabric
The bottom edge of the vest lands just above the beltline thus maintaining your range of motion
Pairs seamlessly with our heated gloves or glove liners (see wiring tab for more info on this)
Note: Wear this vest over a t-shirt and under a jacket to maximize heat retention
Choosing the Correct Size
Make sure you are wearing only a t-shirt
Measuring your chest (just under the arms) and then your stomach
Take the larger of these two measurements as your reference point
A 42 size vest is a good fit for a person with a 42-inch reference point (when worn properly, the vest should hug the contours of your body)
Optional Portable Battery Add-on
Consider purchasing one of our Heated Clothing Portable Battery Kits if you'd like to use your heated vest when you get off your vehicle. In other words, a portable battery will allow you to use this vest while skiing, snowboarding, or just taking a walk on a cold day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Gen-X3/X4 line of heating clothing is not compatible with the Gen-X2 line of heated clothing. Any attempt to do so with ruin the heated clothing, and VOID your warranty immediately! Only heating elements are covered under warranty. Normal wear and tear is not a warrantable defect

Watch the video below for a walkthrough on connecting various pieces of our heated clothing
Q: What are the specs?
A: Vest produces 53 watts of heat and draws 3.9 Amps of current (tested when the engine was idling).
Q: Will this work alongside other brands of heated clothing?
A: Yes! All our heated clothing is compatible with Firstgear, Gerbing, Warm & Safe, and Venture Heat.
Q: What is the difference between Gen-X3 and Gen-X4?
A: Gen-X3 uses a copper-based heating element (made in the USA), whereas Gen-X4 uses Zepto fibres (made in France). Thus, Gen-X4 heats up faster, generates more heat, and is lighter. Both are amazing products, but Gen-X4 is just a little bit of an upgrade!
