If you are a man and you are looking for a stylish, warm, and lightweight heated jacket that you can wear on any occasion, this Ravean heated jacket for men should be the one you are looking for.

Our Verdict

Ravean Men’s Down X is a heated jacket that is characterized by two main features, first and foremost, it has a heating system of 8 heating elements that heat your back, chest, and front pockets, and secondly, it is RDS certified (Responsible Down Standard). It is a very lightweight heated jacket and at the highest heating setting, the jacket can be used for temperatures down to -10 Fahrenheit (-23 Celsius).

The material that is used in this jacket is breathable, light, and soft to the touch. The fill of this Ravean heated jacket is 90% hydrophobic duck down and 10% feathers. This heated jacket can warm you and protect you as well from wind, rain, and snow. It offers comfort and flexibility and you will enjoy it whenever you wear it.

Ravean Down Heated Jacket for Men Review

Design and Features

This heated jacket is very soft; it is made of a material that successfully repels water so you are well protected when it is rainy or snowy and also it very easy to clean, more precisely it is 100% washable.

When temperatures are very low, especially in winter, we are constantly trying to ideally warm our bodies while we are outdoors. As one of the most important clothes besides winter socks, pants, sweaters, gloves, hats, and scarves we also use winter jackets. But no matter how good the winter jackets are, they cannot ideally keep us warm in very extreme cold conditions.

However, there are jackets on the market that have a built-in heating system to provide optimal heat to our bodies when we are exposed to very low temperatures. As I said a while ago this Ravean Down Heated Jacket also has its heating system which is powered by a 12-volt battery.

With the help of this battery, the heating system of this heated jacket can deliver heat for 6.5 hours if you use the lowest heating mode, but if you use the medium mode, then you will get heating for a maximum of 3.5 hours or if you choose the highest setting you will get constant heat for 2.4 hours.

 

The Heating System of the Ravean Men’s Down Heated Jacket

When we talk about the heating system in heated jackets, it usually consists of 3 to 5 heating elements placed in three key locations for heating our body, such as the back, left, and right chest, and offers three standard heating modes such as low, medium and high.

But the Ravean heated jacket goes one step further in their offer. Namely, this heated jacket has built-in 6 heating elements placed in five key places for the ideal distribution of the heat to your body.

First, two heating panels are located on the upper part of the back, then one on the left and right chest, and two additional heating panels in the area of ​​the front pockets.

 

The Hood and the Comfort

Even when you are not using the heating system, this Ravean jacket keeps you warm. Otherwise, this heated jacket has a power rating of 750, which is more than satisfactory.

The hood is easily removable with the help of a zipper which is easily usable. You will also be particularly surprised at how easily the hood attaches to the collar of the jacket when you need to use it again. Otherwise, on the back and front of the hood, there are drawstrings to adjust it exactly to your needs.

This is a really beautiful jacket; it offers great comfort and does not suffocate you at all when you fasten it completely to the top. There is enough space in the collar area so that you can wear a scarf with it without any problems.

 

Cuffs with Thumbholes

And one more thing that is really worth mentioning about this Ravean jacket and that is at the end of the sleeves of the jacket there are elastic cuffs with thumbholes.

This is a really handy feature and has several useful uses:

  • Firstly, they fill the space between the sleeves of the jacket and the gloves by preventing hot air from escaping outside and at the same time preventing cold air from entering inside
  • Secondly, this feature at the same time protects the palms from the cold
  • Thirdly the cuffs keep the arms down in place

This feature can rarely be found in heated jackets from other popular brands.

Cuffs with Thumbholes

The Switch On/Off Button

The on/off button is located on the inside near the left collar. With the help of this button, you can also dial the required heat. To turn on the heated jacket you just need to press and hold the button for about two seconds. The same goes for if you want to turn off your jacket.

The characteristic of this button is that depending on the selected heating mode, different color lights up. In fact, this button will light up red if the highest mode is selected. If the button illuminates white it means that you have selected the medium heating mode and in case you select the lowest heating mode the button will indicate blue.

This heated jacket also has a preheating mode so that when this mode is selected the power button will start to pulsate in red. In addition to the USB 5v / 2A charging port, the battery also has a flashlight that will serve you well in certain situations when visibility is reduced and you need to illuminate the space where you are.

What I really like about this battery is its curved shape that allows the battery to fit snugly around your body. I also like that this battery has 5 LED indicators that show you the battery charge level. Most heated jackets from other brands do not have this feature in their batteries, which is another positive advantage of this Ravean heated jacket.

 

LED Flashlight

Here is another great feature that is not part of the battery pack of the heated jackets from other competitors and could be very useful in some emergencies or situations and that is as I mentioned earlier in this review there is a built-in LED flashlight in the battery itself that comes with this Ravean heated jacket.

But, when you need to use this flashlight you need to be careful how and how long you will use it because it will affect the longevity of the battery to power the heating elements when you need to heat your body.

 

Lots of Pocket Space

To take your necessary items with you, the Ravean heated jacket offers you enough pocket space. Namely, this jacket has a total of 8 pockets, 4 external ones, such as two side pockets for your hands, one in the left part of the chest and one in the left arm.

While on the inside on the left side there is a specially designed pocket for the battery which includes a passthrough for a cable to the side pocket for connecting with your mobile phone. A completely identical pocket like the battery pocket is also located on the right side which also has a passthrough for a cable. Just below these pockets, there are two extra-large mesh pockets without patents for storing larger items.

Just for comparison with heated jackets coming from other popular brands such as Bosch, Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Ororo, usually most of them offer only 4 to 6 pockets which is much less pocket space than the Ravean heated jacket offers.

Usually, in the winter we need more pocket space in our jackets. Because in addition to wallets, smartphones, keys, pens, and notebooks we also need to take with us additional things such as gloves, scarf, hat, handkerchief, or other necessary things.

Because of this, we often have to carry an extra bag that many will not like. But in this case, the Ravean heated jacket offers you more than enough pocket space to take all your necessary items with you. Namely, this Ravean heated jacket not only has 8 pockets, but they are also spacious.

 

Stretchability and Mobility

In the armpit of the jacket, there is a gusset made of stretch fabrics that increase mobility when you move or stretch your arms, a feature that is rarely found in most heated jackets.

 

Sizes and Fit

Another thing to consider when buying a Ravean heated jacket is the size. You can view the sizing guide below or you check out the dimensions offered on Ravean’s main site.

Also on the outer shell of the jacket is added a layer of fabric that has high water repellency, so you are protected not only from the cold but also from the rain.

Otherwise, the jacket is 100% washable, without any problem you can wash it in the washing machine, which means that you will be able to clean it very easily anytime.

 

Our Conclusion

What I like most about this Ravean heated jacket for men, is that it can keep you warm even if you don’t use the heating system, it is lightweight clothing that offers great flexibility, easy to use, and more importantly, you can wash it in the washing machine. And don’t forget, its battery can be used for charging your smart devices like smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and more. This is a really beautiful heated jacket that you will enjoy wearing on every occasion.
