Using cutting-edge, innovative technology, the ThermoLuxe Heat System heats outerwear using a universal and rechargeable USB power pack and carbon fiber heat panels that can be adjusted with the press of a button. Stylish, functional, and lightweight, these outerwear products are the perfect alternative to traditional bulky jackets and heavy coats.

Rainforest Inc. has been in the business of designing,producing,marketing and distributing outerwear for over 20 years. In that time, we’ve sold millions of warm jackets to our customer, and they’ve all had one thing in common: they’re heavy and bulky. To keep wearers warm, they have to be — don’t they?

Those who enjoy trekking in the great outdoors face a different set of challenges as they try and balance the need for warmth and the desire to be mobile and comfortable as they go.

For traveling, for trekking, and for everyday life, bulky, heavy outerwear may keep people warm, but at what cost? There has to be a better way.

Say goodbye to heavy jackets and bulky coats, because with Rainforest Inc.’s latest innovation, you can stay warm without the bulkiness and weight of traditional cold weather outerwear. The ThermoLuxe Heat System is a cutting-edge line of lightweight outerwear that comes with its own built-in heating system. Rechargeable and adjustable, it’s a modern and technological solution to the age-old problem bulky coats and jackets present their wearers.

An accessible luxury brand, ThermoLuxe Heat System is a truly unique new line of outerwear that includes parkas, jackets, coats, and vests. Sold online and in stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Mitchells, Richards, Nordstrom, Von Maur, it’s the very first product of its kind to combine fashion, function, and technology to create a groundbreaking wardrobe.

Whether you’re traveling, trekking, or living your everyday life, Thermoluxe Heat System has your back — and keeps it warm — anytime, anywhere.

We live in a technical world, and it’s about time our wardrobes caught up to the rest of our lives. That’s why Rainforest Inc. created it’s newest line of luxury outerwear for the modern wearer: the ThermoLuxe® Heat System.

ThermoLuxe® Heat System is unique for two key reasons:

  • Our Insulation Material - ThermoLuxe®
  • Our Heat System, which includes Heat panels, control button with 3 settings, and a power bank rechargeable battery.

Superior Material
ThermoLuxe® is a proprietary ultra lightweight insulation material from Italy.

Hypoallergenic and Water repellent
ThermoLuxe® insulation is equivalent to premium down in warmth and fill power with ultra lightweight and the advantages of being Hypoallergenic and Water repellent.

Performance Improvement on Down & More Cost Effective
ThermoLuxe® is actually a performance improvement on real down and has the added advantage of being less expensive and stable costing than down.

Fibers Stay in Place
ThermoLuxe® cluster fibers won’t come out of the stitching hole (vs down fibers are smaller than the needle holes and may come thru it).

Innovative Warming Technology
Say hello to warmth, and goodbye to bulkiness with this unique warming alternative to traditional thick and heavy jackets. Our ThermoLuxe Heat System combines superior material with the power of technology to create a new kind of warm outerwear: coats, vests, and jackets that can be heated by a rechargeable powerpack with the press of a button.

Each ThermoLuxe Heat System has three interior carbon fiber heat panels — two at the front of the chest and one at the upper back — that can be turned on and adjusted easily by a built-in button conveniently located just on the inside of the coat, jacket, or vest zipper. Perfect for anyone looking to warm up, they have three different temperature settings: Red, which reaches 120 degrees, White, 110 degrees, and Blue, 100 degrees.

Unique Charging Capabilities
Powered by a universal USB portable and rechargeable battery, each ThermoLuxe Heat System can last from 2 to 6 hours, depending on the temperature setting. The power pack in each coat, jacket, and vest can also power and charge a smartphone, so the days of worrying about our phones dying on the go are finally behind us.

Rainforest Inc. has been designing, creating, producing, and selling accessible luxury outerwear for over 20 years. Known for our line of functional and fashionable down-filled coats, Rugged Elegancy, we have been a premier resource for fine outerwear for over two decades, and in that time, have sold millions of heavy coats. Now, we’re trying something different.

Rainforest Inc. started producing ThermoLuxe®, a proprietary down alternative in Italy, in 2014, and in 2016, began development on a brand new, cutting-edge line of outerwear that combined that superior insulation with technology to create a new kind of warm coat. After months of research and development, Rainforest Inc. perfected cold weather Heat System technology, a carbon fiber heat panel powered by a rechargeable battery, and began incorporating it into fashionable outerwear.

In fall of 2016, the two heat systems were put into production and tested at several upscale luxury retailers, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Richards, and Mitchells. After seeing success on a small scale, the ThermoLuxe Heat System was introduced to targeted retailers  accounts in 2017 market weeks from January thru April, and is now  planning calls for upscale and luxury retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Richards/Mitchells, Nordstrom, Von Maur, Bloomingdale’s, Rochester/DXL Destination and others  to carry Thermoluxe Heat System outerwear starting this fall season which starts August 2017 plus at it’s own website Thermoluxe heat system: http://www.thermoluxeheatsystem.com/
