FOOMEXT insulates you from the cold while you immerse yourself in nature. Its ability to change temperature makes it unlike any vest you’ve ever had.
Clothes should be able to provide you with sufficient insulation as needed, while being slim and lightweight without adding extra bulk to allow you to enjoy the great outdoors.

In cold weather, you can wear the FOOMEXT heated vest under your jacket or coat to get extra warmth without looking puffy or bulky. It is convenient to carry because you can simply roll it and pack it in your bag for a trip to freezing places or for unexpected weathers. You can also pair it with a sweater or a shirt underneath to keep warm. It is an ideal insulating garment to wear on the move or at quick stops, during physical activities or exercises.
FALL IN LOVE WITH COLD WEATHER
Efficient and comfortable distribution of heat from your back to the rest of your body.
Why the FOOMEXT heated vests are much lighter, slimmer and warmer than the heated vests on the market?
Our core competence: CARBON NANOTUBE FILM
The most advanced heating material ever adopted into apparel.
"...the operation of high performance carbon nanotube film heaters, which show a clear advantage over traditionally employed materials...The results have shown very effective conversion of electric power into heat." - Dawid Janas and Krzysztof K. <Improved Performance of Ultra-Fast Carbon Nanotube Film Heaters >
"For comparison, you probably remember the story of Rapunzel letting her hair down for the prince to climb up. If Rapunzel’s hair were made of carbon nanotubes, around four strands of hair would suffice to support the prince’s weight without snapping." - Andrew Hyer <Microchips and Nanotubes: Using Carbon Nanotubes in Electronics>

We are a group of young entrepreneurs (Jenny, Bryan, Perla, Rain, Bruce) born in the '80s and '90s. We are adventurers seeking to change ourselves and the world we live in. We found it difficult to keep warm without looking bulky and puffy with multiple layers on, especially in challenging weathers. We created FOOMEXT with the connection and resources of the advanced nano-material R&D outcomes of Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and more importantly, the notion to keep our families and friends warm with slim and comfortable clothing. FOOMEXT is the smartest heated vest ever that combines technology and design. We need your support to help deliver more warmth to this world!
