great product! Great mobility - the battery is small and placed in a position that does not limit movement or work at all. This will keep you warm for hours on one charge.

I bought both the XL and 2XL for trial and error. Kept the 2XL for the length and movement. Im typically an XL. Other reviews said you want the elements tight on you to keep you warm and I could feel the difference in placement between the two sizes. Can't wait for the cold to hit to use my hoodie!

The Milwaukee Heated Hoodie is a great buy. I'm an electrician and work outside sometimes. It takes off the chill and on zero degree days, I put on a regular hoodie over this one and it keeps the heat in and still keeps me warm. Last one I owned lasted two years and to be fair I put it through a lot of abuse. The battery is on the lower left hand side of the hoodie. It may take some getting used to but its not bad unless your getting in and out of a vehicle of have to get on the ground for something, But you get used to it. Be careful of stressing the cables in the chest area below the on/off button. That's where the last on wore out at.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Johndeereman Not a Good thing
I purchase this hoping it would give me heat while I did the snow plowing. It never heated up enough to feel. I think if a more powerful battery was used it would have been better. The jacket it self was a very nice and well constucted garment but was just too expensive for just the jacket a lone so I have returned it.

This is a great hoodie that warms up quick. Be sure to buy one size larger than you would normally wear,shrinks when you wash

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Matthew Ok but not for the price!
First, I'm glad I have a lot of the batteries for this! The back heats nice at the top but the chest barely works. I think the picture shows the heated area is better than it actually covers. I do like to wear it and am glad I bought it but even on sale I feel it was overpriced, but heated gear is always pricey!
The position of the battery may be a little uncomfortable at times like when you are seated but I didn't have much of a problem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NWSailor Alright but not what I thought
So let me put it like this, I love Milwaukee and don't mind wearing a Milwaukee hoodie at all, but the fact that this is so pricey for being a heated jacket was something I would think would do more. Let me explain, so when on the hottest setting yeah I can feel something down in my lower back but not enough to really keep me warm unless I'm sitting down where the heated wires are pressed against my back. I think something like this is best if you have a thin shirt on as you'll feel that much sooner and probably still stay warm. There have been a few times I've worn this out in cold elements (30-ish if you even want to call that cold) and turning the heat on didn't do much for my heat, I was still cold. I'd really be interested though in seeing how the jackets are as they are thicker than the hoodie.
As far as position of the battery it is on your lower left back side, probably the best place for it but yet you will feel it here and there. Just watch out trying to swing this thing around you to put it on as I've done that and had the battery fly into my face, yeah first and last time I've done that, felt stupid after that.
If they had hoodies that were around $40-$50 without the battery and charger yes I'd think about getting another one but at the current price it is ridiculous. I was able to purchase this on the special buy of the day deal HD had and got it for about half. If it wasn't for that and getting another battery that goes with my M12 set I wouldn't have purchased this or if I would of after I felt how little cooling it does at times I would've returned it then.
I will say though I'd love to see how the jackets are, I wonder how much better they retain the heat in.
