Great Vest for Hard Work in the Cooler Temps!!
This is a very high quality great piece of work/ casual cold weather clothing!! The vest uses the same M12 battery as many of my other tools. The vest is very easy to plug in and turn on and off. Very true to size. In my opinion, I prefer a vest of sleeved jackets when the weather permits. This vest keeps you very warm in the core of your body while allowing very free movement of your arms. The material is a very heavy duty, strong ripstop polyester. The vest is almost too nice to get dirty!! For me personally, I find a great benefit of the ripstop material is its ability to be wiped down with a damp towel to clean. The vest kit comes with a battery and charger & along with the adapter to plug in the battery. The vest comes in tight plastic bag with the charger in an additional box. I would definitely recommend to the person who works on a regular basis in the elements along with anyone else who likes to stay warm and comfortable. Go get one today!!!

Awesome vest!
This Milwaukee vest is great! For me, a coat is just too warm so I prefer a vest. That this is heated can give me a little boost if it gets a little too chilly. The materials used are pretty impressive. The description states that the whole vest is ripstop fabric, but it looks that only the pockets are ripstop. The majority of the panels look like cordura nylon. Whatever the material is, it should suffice for some heavy duty abuse. The interior is fleece lined. There is one interior zippered chest pocket that is on the left side. It will fit an iPhone 6S Plus or equivalent. The battery fits into a zippered pocket on the outside, back left side of your body. The battery pack can also charge a cell phone if you have the proper adapter. There is a slit to run the charging cord from the battery, through the material, to the inside part of the vest. The zippers are average, not the highest quality that I would prefer. This vest can be washed & will function properly afterwards if the washing instructions are followed. This product is made in China.

Milwaukee's innovation in the new technology
The vest has a durable 4 inch wide carbon fiber heating pad, located at the chest and also in the back, behind the chest. It has 3 heat settings: High heat (Red), Medium heat (white) and low heat (Blue) The high heat comes up to 115 degree Fahrenheit, medium to 95 degree and low to 85 degrees. It will run for about 6 hours. The Milwaukee M12 Large Heated Vest Kit comes with everything you want to start with: the vest, battery, battery holder, and battery charger. I am ready to enjoy it in the coming winter days. The only CON that I did not like is the location of the battery in the left back pocket; it is sticking out. It feels funny when I walk with the battery in the vest pocket. It is amazing that you can wash and dry a vest with electrical heating pad; that is Milwaukee's innovation in action!

Good in-vest-meant
I ordered this from homdepot site. The large size fits nicely Good sturdy feel. M12 vest heats nicely with carbon fiber heating pads. Another feature is three settings for heat control. I used it for several chilly mornings. I do recommend the three amp m12 battery for longer use in the field and my jobsite renovation of my 5th wheel rv. Again m12 vest quality sturdy materials plus Milwaukee makes the best heated clothing and jackets

Ingenious Vest, Excellent Quality
This Milwaukee heated vest arrived well packed and included the vest, battery as well as the battery charger (see photos). To start, the vest itself is very well made and comfortable. I have a 46” chest and the X Large fit me perfect;. The design is ingenious; carbon fiber heating elements surround the trunk of your body powered by the proven M12 redlithium battery pack contained in a back zippered pocket. Each battery charge will allow up to six hours run time. The M12 chest logo is a LED controller that allows you to select high, medium or low heat setting. The vest also has a handy cell phone zippered breast pocket located on the inside as well as a heavy duty hanging loop on the back collar. The vest is rugged and attractive. I look plan to use it for working outdoors, boating and riding my motorcycle during the colder months. This vest is machine washable and rain resistant. Outstanding Milwaukee!

The vest keeps you warm but what I don’t like is the size of the battery. It is the same round battery that is used in the battery powered tools. If it were flat it would be more comfortable.
