“While This turned out to be a Good Heated Jacket Last Winter”

While this was a good heated jacket last winter, there is 1 point I would love to bring up. I work structure, and sometimes, I should wear a Safety Harness.the placement of the battery pack is such that it jams into my hip when wearing both the jacket and the safety harness. This is not something the Casual user will encounter, but it is something which milwaukee should keep in mind for improvements to the design. Apparently Dewalt also makes one of these, with Dewalt power drill batteries to operate it, and it has 2 power ports going to 2 pockets. . Just a thought

“Warm Blooded”

I got this jacket for my wife, that isnt as hot blooded as I am. Winters are particularly hard for her and when I saw a battery powered jacket (like the electric blankets of olde) I jumped on the purchase. It required two yields (Amazon is GREAT about this) but we got lucky on the third one. The size runs VERY small; my wife (56, 125 lbs) is normally either a Small or Extra Small in everyday clothing but she required a Medium inside this jacket. If you are a sizable guy like me (66, 280 lbs) I wonder if they even have a size that will fit. But all this aside, the wife LOVES her new coat, she stays warm on those chilly Autumn mornings, and we are very satisfied with the purchase.

“Could Be Warmer”

I simply tried the jacket. Well, even at the highest setting the heater elements don’t produce enough heat in freezing weather (I work out as a passenger airplane maint tech, even at nighttime in Bostons harsh and frosty winter). But, Milwaukees product plan is functioning well; I bought their grease gun, impact screwdriver, 1/4 ratchet and this jacket. Being able to use the same batteries and chargers is a great method to spare money.Again, I only wish the heater components can produce more heat, in addition to having heating components across the arms. The reason why I deleted one star is being made in China (I am a stubborn supporter of made in the USA and Japan).If you become ill with cold often in winter, a heated jacket is crucial (doesnt have to become Milwaukee; you can go with Bosch or even DeWalt too but Bosch seems to get poor standing).UPDATE: In the maximum setting, the battery lasts approx 2 hours. In case you have x2 batteries within simple access this wouldn’t be a problem as Li-ion batteries are known for quick charge. I plan on getting x2 more M12 2.0 real Milwaukee batteries. Non-OEM batteries are made in China also, but they appear to have horrible standing. Like cheap HID bulbs (a high-quality HID bulb is usually manufactured in Germany and costs a minimum $60 ea.) , you dont try to cheap out on certain products.
