Tech That: Ororo Heated Jacket and Vest

Ororo makes heated apparel for cold weather, including jackets, vests, gloves, trousers, and scarfs.

Available from:, Amazon

RRP: Mens Classic Heated Jacket £259, Women’s Heated Lightweight Down Vest £269.99


Plus points

  • Build quality is exceptional. From zippers to stitching to design, everything appears to be top notch
  • Each garment comes with its very own carry case which is great for travel
  • The hood on the classic jacket is detachable by zipper
  • There are three heating modes which can be toggled with a button on the front of the jacket – high, medium or low
  • Heating zones differ from model to model. The jacket heats up around the chest and back area, the vest heats up around the neck and pocket area
  • The included battery pack can be neatly stowed inside a pocket and doubles as a power bank so you can charge your phone or anything else
  • Even when turned off, the jacket still provides excellent warmth from the wind and rain
  • They are both machine washable on a cold cycle
  • Battery life can last up to 10 hours on the low setting
  • Glowing power button on the front of each jacket draws attention and peaks everyone’s interest

Nil points

  • Jacket is a bit bulky compared to other lightweight down jackets
  • It can be heavier than a regular jacket or vest due to the battery pack and wires contained inside
  • The battery pack connects using a proprietary cable, meaning that you can only use an Ororo branded battery
  • Some may find it pricey (but it’s around the same price as other good quality winter jackets)

Bottom line

✡ ✡ ✡ ✡

If you’re like us and get cold easily during the winter months, this is the most unique and effective way of heating yourself.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
