This vest is made for the HeartMate device. For Heartware users, we highly recommend also purchasing the HeartWare Controller Pack.

FASHION & FUNCTION: The Leather LVAD vest is made with a lightweight leather that can be used year round.   It was created to look fashionable and completely hide the LVAD. The leather LVAD Vest features battery pockets on the inside, located under the arms for comfort and balance.  Battery pockets lock batteries in place with Velcro.  There are 4 pockets on the inside in which to hide your HeartMate Controller.  The vest is intentionally long enough to hide your drive-line completely but carefully patterned for fashion and function.

    My husband has 3 shirts and now a leather vest. Ordered it for his birthday. It is a very nice vest. Love that it is made in usa and customer service is very good.

  3. Doug Backstrom (store manager)

    The leather vest is everything it was promised to be. It is a bit large in the shoulder area but nothing I can’t adjust to. The waist is perfect. A well made vest. Thanks

  4. Charles Gerley (store manager)

    The leather vest is great. This is my second one. Out grew the first one.

    My husband has been trying to figure out how to wear his LVAD so it’s safe, comfortable, and not bulky. Your brilliantly designed LVAD shirt makes all of this a reality. Thanks so much

    I wear a size large in shirts. Haven’t bought a coat in a long time, they aren’t required for my job what size vest should I get. I have a heartware controller. can the pouch be attached to the vest on the inside like the heartmate?

    I have a friend that is xxxl maybe xxxxl, so with the comment above with the battery placement due to cable length, on a guy of this size is that an issue? I’ve found that the vest looks like the best way to hide the vad, so I hope you can help with this concern. He’s really gonna be self conscious for a while! If it doesn’t work for him can we get a refund?

    Thanks in advance,

    I’m loving the leather vest. I’m a couple of weeks past discharge, so things are still healing up, and the vest doesn’t press on any tender places. The vest is FAR more comfortable than anything else I’ve tried. My back no longer hurts and I don’t waddle when I walk. And it looks really nice – you can’t really tell I’ve got an LVAD. I did find I need to arrange things differently than the photo. I have a HeartMate 3, and the left battery cable is barely long enough to reach the controller if it’s in the right snap pocket. So I swap the positions of the controller and right battery.
    Perhaps a future solution would be to place a cell phone pocket on the right side as well as the left, so I could put the controller there. It might need to be a bit sturdier, but it would avoid having to stretch to the snap pocket. But with the current design, swapping the controller and right battery works for me. I am delighted with it as is!

    I am wanting to order the leather vest, but am curious as to sizing. I believe I need an XL, but a lot of times how things are sized variates. If I order an XL what do I do if it does not fit right? Can it be returned for another size? Thank you.

Hi Thomas
Size exchanges are free, quick and easy. The Leather vests run very true to normal size, but exchanges are no problem.
