My Core heated gear is new to the market, yet the timing of their introduction couldn’t have been better for me.
I learned about the product on the eve of a South Dakota deer hunt, where conditions would be more like the Arctic than the Great Plains.
I arrived in camp an hour ahead of the FedEx delivery and was excited and grateful to be able to test a heated garment in such frigid conditions.
Although I didn’t get a deer that morning, I hunted until noon and was toasty warm. I allowed others to try it on, and the response was always the same: “Ahhhh!”
My first impression when putting on the coat was its quality. The Mossy Oak parka would make for a great hunting garment, even without the heating ability. The outer fabric was soft and quiet and the tail of the coat dropped below the waist, so there were no drafts while climbing or bending.
To charge up the heating elements, you plug the coat in, like a cell phone, the evening before the hunt. When fully charged, it offers six hours of heat on high, nine hours on medium, and 12 hours on low. I used the parka on the “high” setting and recharged it when I came in for lunch.
If you’re a tree-stand hunter and hate to be cold, this gear is for you. It warms your wrists to help keep your hands warm, and it strategically warms your core.
The My Core website has an informative video that will answer many questions. As for me, upon first trial, I’m sold!
