Ororo Heated Clothing for Cold Weather
Hunters are always trying to get to the next level in their pursuit of the next great hunt. The addition of heated clothing for cold weather is one way to add great endurance to your waiting-on game in cold weather.
Ororo has come out with a great 3 products initially and has partnered with Mossy Oak to give you 2 vests and 1 pants.
With winter upon us in Canada I took this opportunity to try out their products in upcoming coyote and other winter hunting.
All Ororo products have a 3-Year Limited Warranty on heating elements and a 1-Year Limited Warranty on battery.
The warranty includes free return shipping in the U.S., that’s a good deal and will give you more confidence in your purchase.
Men’s Heated Hunting Pants (DNA Pattern)
Having used and tried different heated products before these pants right away had the “wow” factor for me.
I sat down with it heating away and just had a big smile on my face, they are very comfortable and simply enjoyable to wear. The silent tricot fleece shell facilitates stealthy movements during the hunt, minimizing disturbances to animals.
Enjoy flexibility and a secure fit with the elastic waist and the option to wear a belt, providing comfort tailored to your preferences. All materials are 100% polyester from the outward material to insulation.
A great feature of the pants is the Gusset Crotch which guarantees unrestricted movement during critical activities like stalking, squatting, or climbing.
This design not only ensures freedom of motion but also boosts durability by evenly distributing stress, providing longevity and comfort for extended periods in the field.
Ensure protection against the elements with waterproof YKK zippers (with self-lubrication, they move even more smoothly the more you use them) on the side pockets, safeguarding both the pants and your belongings.
There is FELLEX Insulation provides lightweight warmth that persists even when damp with bluesign Certification (an independent approval system for the textile industry).
Fellex Kapok Insulation is made from an eco-friendly, biodegradable, natural cellulose fibre. Kapok is harvested from fast-growing trees and needs significantly less water than other natural fibres. Since it has anti-microbial properties it is inherently pest resistant.
Fellex is a great solution for heated clothing for cold-weather hunting as it’s lightweight and breathable.
Due to the Kapok’s uniform hollow structure, it has excellent air permeability and heating properties. It is a soft and puffy fibre which can be used as a lightweight alternative to down or wool.
Strategically positioned in the left pocket, the specifically designed battery pocket minimizes the discomfort associated with the presence of the battery, ensuring an irritation-free experience during your hunt.
Enjoy efficient warmth with advanced Carbon Fiber Heating Elements. This heater has a 7.4V output to expedite preheating.
There are four heating zones: Lower Waist, Left and right Thigh and Three adjustable heating settings (high, medium, and low).
Amazingly, you can get 10 hours of heating out of this battery on the low setting.
If you need a warmer experience you get 3 hrs on high heating setting or 5 hrs on medium.
The battery has a versatile Type-C port for battery charging and a USB port for other device charging.
You can fully charge the battery in just 4 hours (with a 5V/3A charger).
The battery is well produced according to all top quality certifiers (UL, CUL, CE, FCC, and RoHS certified).
The specs on the battery capacity are: 4800mAh/7.4V/35.4Wh and the weight is only 6.53 oz (185 g).
Men’s Heated Hunting Vest (DNA Pattern)
I loved this men’s heated vest from Ororo at first appearance. The multiple pockets and holders are perfect for bullets, and all hunting accessories.
There is a magnetic flat for the main 2 pockets which enables a very quiet way to open the storage pocket. This small feature makes a huge difference in the quietness factor for hunting. Ororo went overboard on some of these design ideas.
The pants and vest are water-resistant, providing some protection in light rain. However, it is not designed to be fully waterproof, so it’s best to avoid heavy downpours.
To take care of the vest or pants you can follow the following directives (note) REMOVE THE BATTERY BEFORE WASHING. And also zip up the pockets:
- Machine Wash Cold.
- Do not iron.
- Do not dry clean.
- Do not machine dry.
- Line dry, hang dry, or lay flat.
Jason Norris, Co-Host of Mass Pursuit TV says about Ororo: “Absolutely, the most comfortable, stylish vest that I have owned. I can wear it in the woods or out on the town and stay warm at the same time. The battery lasts me all day and into the night while hunting. Once that temperature drops, my vest goes with me everywhere. The team at Mass Pursuit TV proudly supports and recommends Ororo Heated Apparel.”
This heated hunting vest comes with several heating areas including a neck warmer!
This hunting vest also features 14 pockets of different sizes to give you all types of storage you need for various hunts and adventures.
The Country DNA pattern features photo-realistic elements, you can use this vest for everything from cold backcountry hunts to other adventures.
The power button is hidden inside the chest pocket to make it less noticeable. You can still easily adjust the heating levels by pressing from the outer shell.
Carbon fibre heating elements are evenly placed on the collar for a warm neck. You don’t have to suffer from a stiff neck with adjustable warmth from the heated collar.
The reinforced shell is water-resistant, which keeps you perfectly dry and warm against unexpected weather. 100% Polyester lining fabric with anti-static treatment maximizes breathability and comfort.
Men’s Heated Hunting Vest (Bottomland Pattern)
When you get the Hunting hunting Vest on Orroro you can choose between a 5k battery set or without a battery set.
If you are buying multiple vests it makes sense you might want to forgo the battery.
With the Mossy Oak Bottomland Pattern, you can seamlessly integrate into wooded and marshy terrains for unparalleled concealment. (it was created twenty years ago for hunting turkey).
With Bottomland’s natural bark elements, this pattern is ideal for hunting ducks in flooded timber, turkey hunting in the hardwoods, or deer hunting from a treestand.
The zippers have a very durable plastic ABS handle to grip onto to pull them shut. The zippers are waterproof and well-designed.
It seems to me the zipper is quieter than normal which makes sense for a hunting jacket, you want to do everything in stealth and quiet.
This vest is the perfect heated clothing for cold weather hunting in the fall for turkeys or other game in the bottomland pattern.
If you already have a bottomland pattern apparel this would be the perfect addition to add some warmth and a layer to your hunt apparel collection.
