DEWALT® announces its new line of heated jackets that can be powered by DEWALT 20V MAX* or 12V MAX** lithium ion batteries. The jackets, when used with a DEWALT 20V MAX* or 12V MAX** battery, are capable of providing hours of core body warmth and continuous heat†. The new line of heated jackets will include 4 different styles: a soft shell work jacket, a hooded work jacket, a True Timber® camouflage jacket, and a True Timber® Blaze Orange camouflage jacket.
Each jacket offers a water- and wind-resistant outer shell, an LED controller with three temperature settings plus pre-heat mode, and three core body heating zones: left and right chest, and back. The soft shell work jacket and camouflage jackets offer a fourth heating zone in the collar.
The heating power is transferred from the batteries to the jacket by a USB power source that is also capable of charging up to two electronic devices that are USB-compatible. “Professional contractors work and play in all weather conditions. In cold weather, DEWALT heated jackets will provide warmth and protection from the elements,” says Sean Templeton, Product Manager, DEWALT.
Jackets can be purchased kitted (jacket, 20V MAX* /12V MAX** USB power source, 20V MAX* battery, and 20V MAX* charger) or bare (jacket and 20V MAX*/12V MAX** USB power source only). The jackets (bare and kitted) will retail for between $149.00 and $229.00 each and will be available in sizes S-3XL†† through distributors in September. The new heated jackets come with a one-year limited warranty and 90-day money-back guarantee.
