Original Press Release:

GEARWENCH to Unveil Heated Apparel at SEMA to Help Pros Perform Their Best in The Worst Conditions

New heated apparel line includes jackets, hoodies, fleeces and vests, with more options in the works for 2020

Sparks, Md., Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- When it's cold, things have a tendency to come to a standstill. Hard work gets harder, tight spaces get tighter, and aches become more painful. But the job still needs to get done. That's why GEARWRENCH® is launching its new line of heated apparel—including a jacket, hoodie, fleece, and vest option—at the SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Garages can get really cold and some mechanics do their work outside just based on the nature of their jobs," said Paul Steinweg, product manager for GEARWRENCH. "Battling those conditions almost becomes as difficult as doing the work, but this new line of heated apparel will help keep mechanics warm and focused on the task at hand."

Each member of the GEARWRENCH Heated Apparel line features three heating zones: left chest, right chest and mid-back. A quick press of the power button brings warmth through carbon fiber within the heat zones, customized with four adjustable settings. A rechargeable 5,200mAh battery provides hours of consistent heat when fully charged (up to 10 hours on the low setting, 3.75 hours on high). The jackets are water resistant, machine washable and dryer safe.

SEMA attendees can get a first look at the new Heated Jackets at the GEARWRENCH booth (#10509) from Nov. 5-8. All four products are slated to be available in retail by December 2019, and GEARWRENCH is planning to expand its line of heated apparel in 2020.
