If you’re a photographer, you may have grown accustomed to long waits in the cold or the problem of bringing along your equipment to remote places and storing it safely. Well, at COOPH we see it as our mission to create innovative apparel, which supports passionate photographers by dealing with the small (and sometimes also bigger) difficulties that go along with the job. That is why we envisioned a completely new breed of a classic photographer’s garment that combines functionality, comfort and style. The COOPH Heatable Photo Vest is our way to bow to those who go beyond the pursuit of extraordinary.
As the global leader in heated garment systems, Therm-ic can draw on well-founded and field-tested knowledge when it comes to the negative effects a cold environment has on performance, safety and balance. All this knowledge and decades of experience have been incorporated into their state-of-the-art heating system, that we have integrated into the COOPH Heatable Photo Vest. It warms the hand pockets and covers the kidney, back and stomach areas and can run for up to five hours with our THERM-IC 5000 mAh battery. The system also works with any rechargeable 5V battery with a USB port.
Layering is key to protect yourself against the cold, especially in winter when you are out in the open; because producing breath-taking pictures means you sometimes have to cope with extreme temperatures. Being no strangers to this problem, we created our Heatable Photo Vest to not only provide additional heat, when necessary, but also to have ideal layering properties. It comfortably fits under your jacket and can also be worn on top of a hoodie or a T-shirt making it a perfect year round companion for every photographer.
Photo vests are an indispensable key piece in every professional photographer’s wardrobe. But oftentimes their style doesn’t come close to their practicality. We thought it was time to change that and created a photo vest that has it all. The COOPH Heatable Photo Vest offers impeccable functionality and is just flat-out good looking. With its two-way reversible design, it allows you to switch your style, whenever you are in the mood for a fresh, new look. Plus, its light-weight construction makes it easy to fold and carry.
When you follow your passion, it is always gratifying to see that the work and effort you put into giving shape to your vision doesn’t go unnoticed. That is why we were more than proud when our COOPH Heatable Photo Vest was announced as a silver winner of the highly respected European Product Design Award. The award-winning products are elected by a professional jury, recognizing the year’s most unique product designs conceived to improve our daily lives with a practical and beautiful creation. The jacket also walked away with the German Design Award, which aims to honor forward-thinking design concepts that provide solutions to the challenges of our times.
At COOPH we live and breathe photography. We understand the needs of photographers and are passionate about creating products that offer clear benefits to our community, resulting in some of the most iconic items in photographic history, such as the COOPH Field Jacket. But our ambition doesn’t end there. Constantly striving to take on greater social and ecological responsibility, we work closely with integrative companies.
