Our customers have spoken and we have listened. One major complaint about the first and second generation IonGear vests was that the temperature control, located on the battery, was not easily accessible while you were wearing the vest. The pocket for the battery is located inside the bottom of the vest, so in order to adjust the temperature you had to unzip and open the front of the vest entirely. If you were wearing a jacket on top of the vest, this would also have to be unzipped, allowing much of the warmth escape that you were trying to conserve. Changing the temperature setting was impossible while driving a motorcycle, which deterred some customers from purchasing the vest. We were able to eliminate these problems using a small, handheld controller that is separate from the battery. This controller shows the temperature setting and battery life and is carried inside an upper chest pocket on the vest. Now you can access the controller quickly and easily with one hand, while keeping warm and without losing focus.
Another improvement made to these products is the switch to a lithium polymer battery, which replaces the former lithium ion battery. Lithium polymer batteries are better quality and have a longer lifespan to add value to these IonGear products.
IonGear Battery Powered Heating products are a great way to stay warm all winter long. In addition to the vest, we also offer a jacket and gloves to keep warm from your core to your fingertips. Our products are completely portable, so you’re not tethered to a bike, outlet, or other power source. Take the heat with you wherever you go using a small, rechargeable lithium polymer battery carried right inside the garment. With multiple temperature settings, the heat can be turned up or down for versatile warming comfort. When the battery life runs out, simply remove from the garment and recharge for the next use.
