Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TGSBOX Good expensive jacket
It's a nice jacket , I purchased an extra battery. Nice high visible.I think it should heat up more. Maybe should have extra heat on arms and full back for that price. Also the battery cable should be a little longer for easy battery change. I like the hood , zip up smooth, fells nice to wear, Overall nice jacket , I'm happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pace Great jacket, works as advertised.
The only problem was the sizing. It was a gift for our son, he takes a medium but had to buy an x large to fit and even at that the arms could be a little longer. I even spoke with a Home Depot rep before ordering the first time and she said they didn't have any further information on sizing - just the chart. Over all the jacket is great, Home Depot service was awesome even tho I had to order three times and return twice. The return to local store was perfect, all employees were very helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maddy Yes I would buy again Just what an outdoor worker needs in New England winter weather
I bought this item for my son for christmas, -he loves it. He is a plumber and is outside all day. It makes the cold weather tolerable. It is high visibilty and negates the need for a safety vest. The only thing I would recommend to Milwaukee is that the reinforce the battery pocket. It "sticks out" making it vulnerable to getting caught on objects.. I have the ablility to sew and have reinforced that seam. Otherwise it is a great purchase thus far

Excellent workmanship. Excellent warmth from the jacket itself. The battery heating, however, is minimal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe LOVE THIS JACKET!
I got this M12 coat after my foreman got one and seemed to love it.Now that i have my own im really liking it.it gets so warm you have to turn the heat down and it came with a small m12 battery that was lasting me a max of 6hr's well i just got the M12 XC battery which is bigger and let me tell you the heat gets warm faster and even seems warmer and it runs me a full 8hr work day on a single charge with the xc pack so that is a def must if your using it for work it made such a diffrence with the xc battery.i highly recommend this coat..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan Great jacket, I love it
This jacket is very functional and a great addition to my winter wardrobe. Quality is top class and the color is catchy. Material is water and wind resistant. Being able to keep myself warm out in the field is very comforting. I’ve also been using it during my bike cruising and fishing trips and I can feel a clear difference wearing a regular jacket vs this one. The jacket maintains my core temperature really well. It got 5 heating zones. 1 in the back, 1 in each front pocket area and 2 in the chest area. After switching it on, I can feel the warmth within 30 seconds.
Three pockets on the outside are really deep. There are two pockets inside, 1 is very small and 1 is medium size.
What I love the most about it is that I am able to charge my cell using the same battery source. The battery housing has a USB port on it and that can charge any device needing 5V or less with 1A of DC current. Just that feature itself makes it worth every penny. My smart phone burns battery fast and this jacket solves that issue. The USB charging is not fast but does give me additional % that can make huge difference in emergency cases. I cannot however charge the phone and use the jacket heat simultaneously. Most of the smart phone brands are coming up with larger screens and those require 2A of DC, it would’ve been super functional if the charger supported up to 2A.
There are 3 color coded heat settings. Red-highest, White -medium and Blue-low. All modes are controlled through the power button on the left-front top of the jacket. For me, the medium works best and I am getting about 4 hours of run time. With highest it is 2 hours and 6 with lowest.
Talking about cleaning, I can wash it in the machine with warm water and gentle cycle. No dry cleaning or ironing though.
The charger re-fills the battery within an hour and that’s impressively fast.
Great jacket, I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan Great jacket, truly delivers
I never thought that my top preference for winter jacket will be coming out a hardware store rather than a clothing store. I am highly satisfied with its style, quality and capability. It in fact looks more stylish than some of the jackets I’ve purchased from specialized clothing stores. But what differentiates this jacket from the rest is its heating capability in addition to convenience of charging my cell phone if need be.
Its feel and appearance is high-end and either gender can wear it. Being wind and water resistant and with thermal fleece lining, you simply cannot go wrong with it. It certainly delivers what it claims and keeps my core warm in brutal cold weather.
There are total of five pockets, 3 outside and 2 inside, so plenty of room to carry my belongings. Front pockets have separate heating control and chest & back has separate. I can wash it with my regular clothes on gentle cycle. The battery charge is quick, in less than an hour it’s ready for another 6 hours.
I love it.
