I use this jacket in my job with TDOT and find myself standing outside working most of the day. During cold weather, I can adjust the temperature to keep me warm all day long. I also bought a backup battery just in case the battery that came with jacket runs down. Great for the outdoor worker who must be away from the office and out in the cold all day. Would I recommend - certainly, its a must have.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marshaller08 Nice looking Jacket but..........
I purchased this Jacket Late Oct and Used in Nov because I do Airplane Marshalling at Denver International Airport and package handling. The Large size fit well. I am 5'10" 190lbs. The Jacket fit is good for a person who is slim to regular size which is how I consider myself. I have a 36" waist and 42" chest and wear a 16 -16.5 34/35 long sleeve shirt.
So the Large M12 Lithium-Ion Cordless High Visibility Heated Jacket Kit (Battery and Charger Included) Model # 203461307 fit well on my body frame.
I needed a warm jacket which allowed me to marshall and handle packages out in the cold. then I wouldn't have to wear many clothing layers. I was excited to purchase this jacket. Hoping it would keep me warm for tempertures ranging from 45 degrees down to negative 20 degrees and occasional wind chill factor of 10 to 20mph. During the time I tried the Jacket in Nov, the lowest temperature was 20 degrees. Underneath I only wore a long sleeve thermal shirt.
Unfortunately once I turned it on, the jacket did heat up, then within 5 maybe 10 minutes the heat diminished or felt like it just turned off and I didn't feel any of the heat. Additionally when I had the jacket on the highest setting the battery supplied only charged the jacket for a little less than 1.5 hours.
If the jacket and battery pack was working properly, it didn't feel like it was heating the jacket. I didn't want to pay for the extra large battery pack M12 XC 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Battery for $69. The jacket then would have cost me $270 which is higher than what I want to spend on a jacket.
Since the jacket didn't perform the way I had hoped, I returned it. The return process was very easy going to a home depot store near where I live.

There's nothing like a nice warm coat in COLD WEATHER and to have a heated coat is something that can't be beat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susie Love it!
This jacket was purchased for my boyfriend to wear on motorcycle rides and is lightweight and functional. The battery lasts 4-6 hours depending whether you have it on low, medium or high. There is even a setting for warming the pockets. He liked it so much that he purchased the woman's version for me! The battery can also be used with Milwaukie electric tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sara Super warm!
I bought this for my boyfriend who works maintenance and is often outside during the colder months. I originally thought it was going to be cheap and thin, but it is pretty heavy and makes a nice jacket just as is. But then it heats up in under 5 minutes and is super toasty! We bought another battery so when the first one dies (which it has lasted 6 hours on high), he wont be cold at the end of his shift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Excellent product, runs a bit small
The coat appears very well made. Controls are easy to understand and use. Only complaint is that I had to return the original purchase for a different size because the sizing chart is misleading. Order at least one size larger than the chart indicates you might need (or just stick with the size you normally wear in any other line).
I especially like the separately controlled hand warmers. Should be very nice for cold mornings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vaquerokid great product
This is the second Milwaukee heated Jacket that I have purchased. The first one was a heated vest with the outer coat. I bought it for riding my motorcycle in cold weather and loved it so much that I couldn't pass on the black heated jacket for it's stylish look. Quite honestly, I hardly ever had to turn the heat on even in the cold, but when I needed it the low setting kept me plenty warm for an extended period. When extremely cold I would use the high setting but wouldn't need it long as it will heat you up quick. I highly recommend this product!
