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!

Adding the versatility of electric heat to a jacket is a great idea. The heating elements are in the spots that you need them the most. Please see thermal imaging photos
High setting produced about 104 degrees F, medium was about 94 degrees F, and low was 84 degrees F. Please see thermal imaging photos
Having 3 heat settings allows you to control your warmth as well as battery life.
Jacket heats up quickly on any setting. There is a USB port for charging electronics that is very clever. You can charge a camera, phone or anything else you have.
Jacket held up to moisture well and is warm even without battery. Battery does add a small degree of bulk, however it is located on your lower side where it does not interfere with normal movements

Love this jacket so much I had to buy one to wear for other than work. Even without the heat, this is a very warm jacket. The only draw back for this jacket is hand wash only.

I ordered the XL jacket, and it is sized accurately. The jacket itself is very light weight and perfect for ease of movement. The jacket has 5 heated areas on two zones. The main jacket (back and front) can be controlled with 3 heat settings, and the pocket can be idependatly controlled with 3 heat settings too.
The jacket is supplied with a holder for a standard M12 battery, and adds a USB port. Using this USB port you can thread your own USB cable through the jacket to charge a cell phone. You have the option of threading the USB cord to the left hand side of the jacket only, and in to a zippered pocket on the inside, or a zippered pocket on the outside. The cable cannot be thread to either of the main larger pockets, which makes sense as these larger pockets are heated.
The jacket warms up quickly, and with its 3 heat settings you can get the perfect preferred temperature. The power buttons (front, top, left) remain lit when the heat is in use.
The jacker is very stylish, and the red logo sets it off nicely. I've had many comments asking where I got the jacket, and amazement when I showed them it was heated. The heating elements in no way interfere with the jacket, and are not visible in any way. The battery pack is at the rear left of the jacket, and did not interfere or get in the way, even when driving a pickup with hugging bucket seats.
The only problem I had with the jacket was the way a USB cable is to be threaded. There are no channels to keep the cable out of sight, and the cable drapes across the inside of the jacket. I found with repeated use the USB cable (if not powering a cell phone which holds the cable in place) would occasionally unthread from the pocket and hang down from the jacket, which required it then be threaded back in to the pocket. This really aught to deduct half a star from my review, but that is not possible. Given how well the jacker otherwise works, I opted to give 5 stars.
Another problem is that the jacket works so well, my wife keeps stealing it when she feeds the horses or goes our riding. Maybe it is time to buy another…

The jacket is awesome, lightweight yet warm. I use it everyday while I'm out and about or at work when it is cold in our warehouse. Since the jacket is machine washable I went ahead and washed it as per the instructions. Well it stopped working after the first wash. I called customer support and was instructed to bring it back and order another one. I'm waiting to get the new one and hoping it doesn't quit working after the first wash. I also have the Milwaukee hoodie and have never had an issue when it's washed.
