We work and live in Buffalo, NY. We understand the need for good winter gear. While a heated jacket sounds like a dream come true to many of us living in the north, such a product may actually be but a dream.
The brand “Columbia” is recalling its Omni-Heat Rechargeable Battery Packs which power heating systems in some of its jackets. The batteries have a defect which can lead to overheating and poses a potential fire hazard.
If you own these battery packs remove them from your jackets and contact “Columbia” for replacement batteries.
