REVIEW – I am quickly becoming quite the connoisseur of heated garments and loving it.  Check out my reviews of the iHood heated vest and the UZE heated jacket.  With hockey rinks being our second home and living in the Midwest in the winter, there are always opportunities to need to be a little warmer.  So when another chance to review a heated garment, the Gokozy women’s heated vest, became available- I jumped at the opportunity.  Here is what I thought.

What is it?

The Gokozy women’s heated vest is just as the name implies, a vest that heats up. The vest is equipped with 5 heating zones and 3 adjustable duel control heat settings that allow you to adjust the heating levels of the back and belly separately and can reach up to 140°F/60°C in just seconds.

Design and features

Gokozy 4

The Gokozy women’s heated vest is a polyester fiber lightweight vest with heating capabilities.  Only available in black, the vest comes with a Gokozy 5V 10000 MAH battery pack the plugs in to the inside pocket of the garment that allows the vest to heat up 5 different zones on the vest and at 3 different temperatures.

Assembly and setup

Gokozy 5

I first received my Gokozy 5V 10000 MAH battery pack in the mail, with my vest arriving a few days later.   Once the battery is fully charged, you are ready to plug it into your vest and get warming.  The button located on the side of the battery pack is your power button, simply double tap to turn on and off.

To charge the battery, you simply insert the provided Micro USB charging side of your cord to the battery pack.  Then insert the opposite end of the cord into a 5V 2A USB power source.

There are 4 lights on your battery pack to indicate what level your battery life is on.  Once all 4 lights are lit and not blinking, you are fully charged and ready to go.  Gokozy recommends to charge fully battery every 6 months, keep away from moisture and liquids and to not expose pack to fire or excessive temperatures.

The tag attached to my vest mentions to read the user manual before wearing.  I did not receive a manual, did not see a QR code to scan or a copy of any manual on the Gokozy website.  With that being said, I got the pleasure of testing it out on my own.  Luckily for me, it wasn’t to difficult and the heated vest is very easy to operate.

As I mentioned a few times, the Gokozy women’s heated vest has 5 heat zones located throughout the vest.  Controlled by the toggle switch located on the front left pocket area of the vest, these 5 zones are located on the collar, the left abdomen, the right abdomen, a spot running down the spine on the back and on the lower back.  You can click through the different colors, which represent the heat levels, and find your desired level of heat in the zones in both zones.

The toggle switch allows you to heat different areas of the vest and at different temperatures if desired.  The left button controls the 2 heating areas on the back and the collar.  While the right button controls the 2 heating areas on the left and right abdomen.  The left and right buttons are completely separate, which gives you to customize how warm you would like the back 3 heat zones from the front 2.

There are 3 heating levels.  The highest heat level is indicated by the red LED light, medium green and lowest is a blue LED.

  • High: Red LED- 140°F/60°C – approx. 3.5 hours
  • Medium: Green (looks white) LED- 120°F/50°C – 5-6 hours
  • Low: Blue LED- 104°F/40°C – approx. 8.5 hours

Speaking of the LED lights, I did not find a way that you could wear the vest and keep it heating with the lights off.  This would definitely be a recommendation of mine as I do not love having a light on my chest shinning at all times.  This was one of the features that I loved about the iHood heated vest.

The included Gokozy 5V 10000 MAH battery pack can last up to 9 hours depending on what level of heat you are using and if you are using the 2nd USB port to charge your phone/devices.  Yes you did read that, the battery pack can heat your vest and charge your device if needed or desired with the 2nd port located on the battery pack.  Obviously if you are using your vest at the hottest level and the 2nd USB port you are looking at closer to 2-3 hours of charge, but definitely worth it in a pinch.

Even after you turn off the vest or the battery runs out of juice, I will say the vest does retain some extra heat for a little while.  There were times that I thought the vest was still on and the battery had died, but it was still having a warming effect.

We have established that the vest works well, but how does it look and feel?

I don’t typically love anything with poof, as I don’t need anything extra making me look any more bigger than I already am, but this vest doesn’t add too much poof and the bottom of the vest also has a cord that allows you to tighten/cinch it at the bottom as desired creating a more fitting look.  All that being said, I’m not wearing it as a fashion statement, but more for necessity and it serves its purpose well and doesn’t look to bad on me.

The Gokozy vest is also lightweight, with the battery pack adding the only weight.  I equivalate the weight of the battery pack to a little heaver than my cell phone.  The battery is noticeably heaver than iHood heated vest, however it has a longer charge and the extra USB port, so for me it is worth it to carry around that little extra weight.

Care instructions

  • Hand wash with cold water or machine wash in garment bag on gentle cycle in cold water (vest only- remove battery)
  • Do not iron
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not dry clean
  • Do not wring or twist
  • Line dry only

What I like about the Gokozy heated women’s vest

  • Long lasting battery
  • Ability to adjust the heating levels of the back and belly separately
  • Lightweight and stylish
  • Affordable
  • Ability to use the 2nd USB port to charge your phone/devices

What needs to be improved?

  • Include a user manual in some form
  • Ability to turn off heating lights while still on
  • Additional vest color options

Final thoughts

I will say that I find myself grabbing the Gokozy heated vest over the the iHood heated vest more often.  For me, the longer lasting battery (although heavier) outweighs the pros of the iHood.  Although, I really wish there was the option to turn off the heating lights, like the iHood vest.  So pros or cons, I really do think everyone needs a heated vest and overall the Gokozy heated vest is a staple in my wardrobe and I would buy any other color they release.  If  you are in the market for a heated vest, this is definitely one to consider!
