Milwaukee Announces Gen5 Heated Jackets Hothttp://www.tool-rank.com/media/listing/photos/thumbnail/300x300s/4e/fc/fe/Milwaukee-Heated-Gear-Family-2014-28-1404288467.jpg
It may be hard to believe, but Milwaukee is in their fifth season of making their M12 Heated Gear. When they come out later this year, the lineup will include more color and camouflaged jacket/hoodie choices, a new jacket design, and even a new 3-in-1 jacket style.
The original M12 Heated Jacket has been completely redesigned from the ground up to make it more comfortable for the user. They changed the cut to improved range of motion, while keeping the jacket closer fitting to help with heat transfer. A new feature allows the chest/back heating zone and the pocket heating zone to be controlled independently from each other. More pockets for your stuff have also been added, with a USB port available for charging and displaying your battery runtime. The new jackets will be available in Black, Red and RealtreeXtra Camo.
Brand new this fall will be Milwaukee's M12 3-in-1 Camo Heated Jacket, which can be worn as a heated vest, and turned into a jacket as needed by simply attaching the outer shell. Still not enough? Add the hood to keep more heat in and the elements out. The shell features the Realtree Xtra Camo pattern on a special noise-reducing fabric, and is both wind and water resistant.
Not much is changing from last year's M12 Heated Hoodies, but there will be more color options. This year we will see the addition of Black as a color option as well as Realtree Xtra Camo and Realtree Max-1, which are again made out of a noise reducing fabric. Like the High-Vis Heated Hoodie, the Camo Hoodies feature a water-repellant polyester shell.
