Carhartt has launched a new, intelligent vest that uses AI to monitor and respond to fluctuating body temperatures to create consistent, personalized warmth.

Designed in partnership with clim8, the Carhartt X-1 Smart Heated Vest intelligently responds to real-time temperatures, activity levels and changing external conditions to create consistent warmth for wearers.

"Mother nature presents all sorts of challenges, and this cutting-edge technology will enable users to manage their body heat and enjoy optimal comfort in cold conditions," said Alex Guerrero, Carhartt’s general manager of global product. "With changing temperatures, different work environments and fluctuating activity levels, our new heated vest offers a personalized experience and functions as a reactionary approach to body heat that enables users to get the job done regardless of the environment or climate."

As well as monitoring the wearer’s surroundings, the vest is also designed to understand and analyze the user’s physiology and activity, adapting accordingly. 

Clim8 provides its intelligent thermal technology to the design, which features an automatic on-and-off interface which detects when a user takes off or puts on the vest, and a smart battery system that optimizes usage to extend battery life. The vest can also be paired to a clim8 smartphone app via Bluetooth, with users able to set it to their preferred temperature.

"At clim8 we are proud of the launch of the Carhartt X-1 Smart Heated Vest,” said Florian Miguet, clim8’s CEO. “Both teams have worked intensely over the past two years on field and lab testing to bring a cutting-edge product, merging Carhartt's strong DNA of durability, performance and clim8's unique thermal experience."
