Using tech to stay warm in the great outdoors: Gobi Heat

Techstination feature for Friday, March 15, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Late winter and early spring can be among the best times of year to enjoy the great outdoors….but in many places…the cold can still make that challenging.   The BioLite Firepit makes for great portable camp fires and grilling.   And for staying warm away from the fire, Gobi Heat makes a variety of heated clothing that is well made and operates on batteries that can keep you warm for hours.   Chief Marketing Officer Kyle Jacobson…

“Each of our products focuses on a different type of person.  And so you’ve got the lightweight puffer coats that pack down really light.  And then we’ve also got our bigger, heavier duty jackets like the Shift, which was built for snow boarders.”

The existing line uses proprietary batteries and connectors…so investing in a spare may be wise. And we are told, there’s much more to come.
