Bosch GHH12V Heated Hoodie Features
The Bosch heated hoodie shares many of the same features as the Bosch heated jacket, but with its own unique contributions to the world of winter warming.
The heated hoodie features three settings for controlling both temperature and runtime. You also get three heating zones: two on the chest and one across the back. Like all Bosch heated gear, the jacket runs off of a Bosch 12V battery and comes with a power adapter. It powers the heating elements as well as providing up to 2.1 amps for charging your phone.
While Bosch constructed their Heated Jackets from 100% polyester, the heated hoodie goes with a 60/40 cotton/polyester blend. Consequently, it doesn’t provide as much resistance to wind and water.
Material, Adjustability, and Fit
The heated hoodie also lacks adjustable sleeves or waist. It also forgoes, as you’d expect, the five internal and external pockets. The simpler design does, however, have its advantages.
We like the lightweight design. With a fully-charged 12V battery, this hoodie should give you a good amount of warmth on those brisk days. Or, it works wonders as a great mid-layer system on really cold days. The large, adjustable hood offers good coverage and cold protection for your head and neck.
Lastly, the Bosch heated hoodie features a fitted waist and sleeves to keep your body heat inside. Three zippered pockets give you some storage options as well.
Sizing and Pricing
To cover all body types, the Bosch GHH12V comes in a variety of sizes ranging from Small to 3X. It retails for around $149, with the 3X size again running for 10 bucks more at $159.
