Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mmmm Sold damaged item as new
Although the box was sealed like it was a new product, it arrived in deplorable condition - stained, frayed wires and looked like it had been run over on a construction site. Not even the right coat for the box. It was disgusting looking and it is disappointing that Home Depot would sell something in that condition. The store manager briefly apologized but they could not exchange the item and it is now out of stock. I can't speak to how well it works, but the interior cord and battery hook up looked destroyed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Love it, keeps your core warm
First off, this hoodie is NOT one of the cheap ones that is going to fall apart after only a few months of wear. Seems to be high quality, and feels very substantial. The yellow is a bright safety yellow, but is also great for high visibility anywhere including the woods (I used this for keeping warm while horse riding in the woods). I was a little worried about the weight that a battery would add, but it uses a very compact lithium ion, and I really didn't notice the extra weight. The battery plugs into a plastic holder on the left bottom size of the hoodie, and that plugs into the hoodie itself (see picture). The on/off button is on the inside top left chest. You just hold it for a few seconds and it will turn red letting you know it is on.
So far the longest I have used it is one time is 3 hours, and it kept my core nice and warm. My husband is a welder, we are thinking about getting him one as well, we are only hesitating because welding sparks are very hard on regular materials, and this is a bit of an investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Its a very hevy duty nice and warm jacket
Very nice and thick hoodie not like the cheep one you will buy in a store. The jacket is very warm on high even in 28 degrees and the wind blowing 15 mph out of the North, but the battery will only last up to 3 hr on high (Red), and about 4 hrs on (Blue), and on (white) about 6 hr.Dont get me wrong it a lot better than any normal jacket you can buy just in cold temps you will need more batteries to get you through the day. The M12 battery is cheap enough to buy and replace verses the other ones and alot lighter to have in you jacket than the other ones.Im very happy with this jacket and would not thank twice about buying another one,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGMT Wouldn't live without them!
My husband has one and loves it! We got this one for our nephew.
Now that they both have one... neither would be without it!
Note: They both work long days (10+ hours) outdoors, and in order to heat on high that long make sure you get extra batteries. They both start their day with 3.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThisOldGarageNJ This Is Nice !!!!
THIS IS A NICE JACKET..... Got this the other day, charged the battery and put it on... This jacket is warm and comfortable. Three heat levels and once I warmed up I had to move to the low setting. It was about 40 degrees out and all I had on was this and a t-shirt and I was plenty warm.
Its water-repellant so it will be great for snow blowing/shoveling this winter, It has plenty of room to move around in. Also with the reflective strips I can be seen by passing cars and not get hit. I also already have some Milwaukee tools so I have extra batteries, Though I got almost 8 hours of use on the low setting.
And all you have to do is take out the battery pack and you can throw it in the washer. I only have one complaint and that is I cant get the jacket away from my girlfriend... Not a big surprise..She loves it.. Guess I'll be ordering another...
Good Job Milwaukee....!!! LOVE IT !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jweisbart Keeps Warm and Visible
The hoodie heats up great with the battery, though the battery does add extra weight. It is highly visible so everyone will see you. It has an LED of red, white, and blue to indicate the temperature level. I usually wear a medium but the large fit perfectly so you might want to get a size larger. I wish this one had the USB port to charge phone like other models do.
