The French manufacturer of Racer equipment is known for its motorcycle, bicycle and riding gloves. However, once the brand perfected their heated glove technology, they adapted the system to other garments. Just in time for the winter driving season, Racer’s new District heated vest takes Racer’s heated gear line to the next level.
The District’s vest construction makes it a great top layer option, and the waterproof treatment of the outer shell keeps the elements at bay. Recycled Primaloft insulation preserves body heat, but the multi-stage heating system offers the best defense against the cold.
Equipped with four heated zones on the shoulders, lower back and stomach, the District jacket delivers warmth where you need it most. While the heating system offers three levels to meet the needs and preferences of the rider, graphene panels help diffuse heat for even distribution throughout the jacket.
At maximum heat level, the District will last up to three hours, but battery life extends up to eight hours with the minimum heat setting. Fortunately, Racer includes an additional power bank with the heated jacket. Of course, the 5.3 inch by 2.8 inch power bank easily fits into any pocket and users can charge custom devices with the unit.
Racer offers the District heated puffer jacket in a men’s and women’s cut. The ladies version is available in sizes XS, S, M and L while the men’s jacket is available in S, M, L and XL. All fits and sizes are priced at â¬ 249.95 ($ 280 USD) and are available in a black colourway. With the holidays just around the corner, there might not be a better gift for the cold weather cyclist on your list than the Racer District Heated Vest.
