Just been thinking lately about investing in a heated jacket since the cold months are ahead of us, would like to know if anyone here has one, what brand it is and if they recommend it.

G,day purchased a Makita Full length, zip on arms 18 volt jacket last season $200 at all tools,came with a 12 volt 1 amp hour battery & holder & charger,

plus the 18 volt battery holder.

Had problems with the 12v battery holding charge & the few times I did get it to charge only lasted 2hr or less.

So I bought 2x18 volts battery's 3amp hr & charger (generic),now I get over 5hrs on 1 battery on hottest setting.

The jacket has 3 heat pads.

Love the jacket, only 1 I have owned so can not say its the best on market but I hope some of the info helps you make a more informed decision when looking.

Hey mate thanks for your reply, I been looking at the milwaukee one but will check out all of the ones they have in store, total tools and sydney tools have both makita and milwaukee jackets coming with a 2amp battery and charger which is handy.

2 amp would be good the 3s are quite large.
