About Mobile Warming®
Proprietary Mobile Warming® technology by Fieldsheer® is specially engineered for cold weather conditions. Whether it’s for Sporting, Farm & Fleet, or Outdoor industry, garments equipped with Mobile Warming® technology by Fieldsheer® are simply the warmest, most comfortable, and easily controllable garments on the market today. Let’s look at the technology – and the brand that introduced it.
The brainchild of Fieldsheer®, the leading manufacturer of performance heated apparel since 2004, our in-house staff of engineers developed Mobile Warming® technology. This exclusive technology offers Bluetooth integration, allowing users to wirelessly select heat levels and check the battery remotely from any Smartphone using the exclusive MW Connect™ mobile app, the brains behind the technology. The MW Connect® App pairs and syncs with the consumer’s Mobile Warming® garments for a level of control not found in competitive garments. The combination of unique materials, construction techniques, battery designs with advanced charging circuitry, and innovative heating panels (we build our own high density heating panels that use efficient Far-Infrared heat), results in the most advanced heated gear for many outdoor applications.
Fieldsheer® garments with Mobile Warming® technology feature anti-microbial and Anti-Static properties, as well as Rainguard and Phoslite technologies. Heating is controlled through a proprietary waterproof control button integrated into the garment. The control button turns heating on/off and allow users to select four different heat levels. Our four power output heat levels are 100%, 75%, 50% and 25%. When initially turning on heat use 100% output for Instant Heat™ and then turn it down to your desired heat level to preserve battery life.
Borne out of a personal passion for outdoor adventure, Fieldsheer® was originally established in 1978 to be the best protective motorcycle gear on the market. Since that time the company has evolved and now produces a broad line of outdoor, work and heated gear. Initially designed to use the motorcycle’s 12V battery, Fieldsheer® was one of the first companies to bring practical heated gear to the market. With improvements in Lithium ion battery and heating panel technology, the company was able to disconnect from the motorcycle and offer reliable, cost-effective, heated gear for a broader outdoor experience. With a constant focus on innovation and technology, the Fieldsheer brand is known for world class quality and design and amazing value.
With a solid reputation as the leading manufacturer of performance heated apparel since 2004, the company has more than lived up to its billing, manufacturing a full line of exceptional gear, for both men and women. The technology and materials behind this line are impressive: Wind-Shark®, Phosolite, Carbolex-HD, proprietary fabrics, PolyTitanium Mesh, Teramid, and Monaco Premium Leather are just some of the elements that make this line durable, protective, and stylish. Fieldsheer® apparel and accessories are sold online at www.fieldsheer.com, and through a nationwide network of resellers.
