Because I am a chilblain, the socks and vest of the Austrian company Lenz had the dubious honour to accompany me through the last hunting season. Winter could have been harder because this year I was not at the cold areas at the Turkish mountains or the Belarussian marshlands.
Some real benefits of these products:
There are batteries with three different levels. All have the same design and the same easy-to-use connection with press studs, so they can be used for many heating textiles of Lenz and can be charged by the same simple charger.
The textiles can not only be regulated at the battery itself or an optionally available remote control, but also very easy and state-of-the-art via Bluetooth through a smartphone app, which also shows the charging status of the single batteries. So you can avoid the cumber some setting at the battery when it is hidden by clothes and also carrying along an additional remote control, because the remote control can be lost, damaged or misplaced. On the other hand you have also your smartphone with you, in my case I use different apps during the hunt.
The products in detail:
heat sock 3.0: The socks have knee length and on the cuff you can attach a battery via three press studs and turn down the cuff. So battery is seated over standard rubber boots. The inboard heating wires are heating very well at the sole and because of the strong battery for hours during drive hunts.
heat vest 1.0: Especially for dog handlers heated vests are strongly recommended. Often we are too warmly dressed and then we break into a sweat and cool down during the hunt when we are waiting for the dog or the return transportation. With a heated vest, especially with a thin one like the vest of Lenz, I can dress up easier, I am more mobile and I can turn on strong heat over the whole back and especially at the loin promptly.
The Lenz heat vest is in total as well as the socks a high-quality product and is and was absolutely worth the money spent.
