Reba McEntire's favorite heated vest — 'the greatest invention known to man' — is 35% off at Walmart

Do you love to wrap yourself up in a heated blanket and wish you could actually walk out of the house that way? Well, you sort of can. There's a popular heated vest that provides such deliciously toasty warmth on a cold winter's outing that customers are swooning — and the most vocal fan of the Ororo Heated Vest is singing/acting legend Reba McEntire. Right now, you can score the winter must-have on sale at Walmart for just $120.

Sure, it's insulated with an eco-friendly filling, but the real stars of the show are the heating elements sandwiched inside of its wind- and water-resistant shell. These create four heating zones — the back, shoulders (under the collar) and two front side pockets — that evenly spread warmth throughout the vest.

Why is it a good deal?

The Ororo Heated Vest, which McEntire told New York magazine is a "life-saving" winter essential and "the greatest invention known to man" — quite an endorsement! — is currently down to $120 (from $180) in black. That's nearly 35% off and one of the lowest prices we've seen in months.

Why do I need this?

The Ororo Heated Vest has battery-operated heating elements, so you do have to remember to charge the vest via its USB port. That said, it'll stay warm for up to 10 hours on a single charge! "The charge lasts a long time, but I always tell people to buy the extra battery pack as a backup," McEntire said. "There’s nothing worse than being somewhere cold and your battery dies."

Worried about overheating? Don't be. You can customize your warmth level by choosing between three heat settings. And don't sweat washing the Ororo vest, either: it's safe to throw it right in the machine, but you can also hand wash it if you choose. Either way, you can expect years of toasty-warm performance.

What reviewers say

But don't just take McEntire's word for it. Take it from the Walmart customers who swear by this piece.

"Perfect!" gushed one rave reviewer. "It's 100% worth the buy. It's a lot warmer than it looks and the pockets have heat. The vest without the heat on is also warm. It's very well made."

Another happy shopper agreed: "So warm. This vest keeps me comfortable while enjoying the luxury of adjustable warmth."

Many customers commented on the vest's stylish details like decorative piping, V-shaped seams and a cinched waist. "Love its quilted design. My colleagues all complimented me on my fashion. They also wanted to buy one," wrote a thrilled wearer.

"I'm very happy with this vest — it's true to size. The heat on my shoulder blades feels great!" exclaimed a final fan.

Feel free to wear it underneath a jacket for extra warmth, but it's powerful enough to be worn on its own, too.

And to prevent frigid fingers, these bestselling hand warmers are also on sale!

These rechargeable hand warmers keep your mitts toasty for up to 12 hours.

"They exceeded my expectations," wrote a five-star fan. "They're a game-changer in cold weather in my city which is one of the snowiest cities in the United States. Quick heating, long-lasting warmth and compact size make them a must-have. I'm impressed."
