Publish date:

Warrington, Cheshire, UK – July 23, 2018 – 8K, an industry leader in innovative heated apparel for outdoor lifestylers, will significantly expand its collection of heated jackets and vests for men and women with new designs, enhanced fabrics, and unveil a collection of limited edition bold new colour options at Outdoor Retailer Summer Show, Denver, CO.

The heat on demand apparel reaches temperatures of up to 50c in just 360 seconds and lets you control the temperature from an app on your smartphone. Powered by flexible heating technology Flexwarm®, the colour collection ensures outdoor lifestylers will stay warm and comfortable in all weather conditions throughout the year. Whether it’s crisp autumn mornings in the city or cold mountain walks, the range of revolutionary heated apparel has you covered on any adventure.

Throughout the range, an array of features to enhance heat insulation have been introduced, a hood for extra wind protection, ribbed cuffs, water resistant fabric and a 2-way locking zipper brings together fashion and technology for the perfect outdoor look. Increased sizing options across the collection will ensure comfort for larger and smaller sizes.

“8K heated apparel is evolving”, said Scott Brenchley, CEO “The expansion of our range combining enhanced style with more technical detailing for improved heat distribution is a natural progression for 8K. Consumers are asking more from their apparel, regardless of whether this is for a night out in the city, a casual hike or weekend travel. We have significantly added to our mens and womens ranges, answering the demand from consumers looking for versatile, heated outerwear. Having a greater variety of colours, style and sizes gives consumers more ways to experience our revolutionary outerwear.”

The Flexwarm® technology included across the collection ensures optimum heat distribution. The unique heating technology is so thin that it can be printed and layered directly onto fabric. This enables the collection to be ultra-lightweight, durable and without the need for additional bulky insulation material, without compromising on warmth and ensuring body heat is retained.

An array of colours can be found across the collection, including midnight blue, orange, green, red, purple, yellow and camouflage, allowing outdoor lifestylers of all tastes to stand out from the crowd.

The limited edition colour collection range is available from 23rd July.
