Default Milwaukee Heated Jacket

Zipper crapped out after a year. It's a good thing these guys don't make Sawzalls. Oh, wait a minute...

A year here also, no problems, great jacket. Buying the high vis hooded jacket too.

I'd put it through warranty if it were right at one year, should be covered unless they found out the owner monkey ****ed the zipper when it was a simple snag.

Go to a tailor or seamstress and get a new zip. If you wax your metal zipper it will last alot longer.

At the big orange box store, and they had an m12 kit for 175. Impact, hammer drill, and either multi tool or right angle drill with battery and charger.

Got to se how much ive spent on tools this year and see if im close enough to the $1000 mark before year end for my tax write off, I think a jacket is my near future.

I love the impact for generator repair and most anything else that doesn't require major power. If I'm doing something where the impact is too noisy, I use the m12 drill. For the bigger stuff, I get out the 18v,soon to be replaced by the fuel line hammer drill/impact combo.

One guy at work decided to buy the heated boots for work, then discovered they aren't allowed on site as they are not approved in a hazardous area.. Laughed real hard at him!!

Have the Jacket. Used it a couple of times over the last month. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it does it's awesome. I'll be taking it to the local warranty shop to have it fixed/replaced.

What happens is it will be fine for a while then it's off. I check the battery level and get nothing. I can put a fully charged battery and still get nothing. No lights, no heat, nothing.

Says the guy that does service work in heated supermarkets!
It's also almost 2013 and I'm not a caveman, if there's technology to make things better I'm using it! I HATE the cold. If that means I wear a girls jacket so be it!

Get back to me after you spend your overnights in the frozen food cases changing fans, ballasts and fixtures. -10F.
