Milwaukee M12 Cordless Heated Jacket Review
Milwaukee M12™ Cordless Heated Jacket
Back in November we told you about a really innovative new product from Milwaukee, the Milwaukee M12™ Cordless Heated Jacket. The Milwaukee M12™ Cordless Heated Jacket is certainly a tool accessory that is sorely needed here in New England this winter! We are having one of the snowiest and coldest winters in recent memories and this jacket has been my secret weapon!
Compatible with the entire line of M12™ professional power tools, the new heated jacket utilizes the innovative M12™ RED LITHIUM® battery technology to actively warm the body and stimulate blood circulation in even the coldest jobsite conditions. Hidden in a sleek back pocket, the RED LITHIUM® battery delivers superior runtime, with up to six hours of continuous heat on a single battery charge.
Anyone that lives and works during the winter here in New England know that keeping warm can be really hard to do. As you can see in the photo I was recently wearing the new jacket during a hefty snow storm while snow blowing our driveway. With the help of the M12™ Cordless Heated Jacket I was nice and warm!
The jacket is really easy to use. There’s a small pocket in the back of the jacket where you plug in a M12™ RED LITHIUM® battery pack. Then to control the heat you simply push a built-in button that’s sewn into the upper chest (above the logo) of the jacket. If you look closely in the photo you’ll see the button is glowing red to indicate the jacket is on.
The jacket itself is made from a water and wind resistant material that appears very durable. I received a 2XL and it fit well including the length which is sometimes a problem for me with jackets.
So for me the final verdict is a huge thumbs up!
This jacket may sound like a crazy marketing idea but the reality is it’s a very functional jacket. Not only will I wear it on the jobsite but I can wear it around the house doing winter yard work like snow blowing, I can wear it deer hunting (it’s even red!), or I could wear it to a football game or skiing. The possibilities truly are endless and so far the jacket is kept under lock and key as the guys on the jobsite are quite envious!
