How long does a battery last ya?
Not long enough, I'll admit that.

Depends on the temperature setting (High/Med/Low) and probably how cold it is outside.. but definitely 2 batteries a day of the small m12 batteries.

You can also use an XC m12 battery or an M18 battery even if you can't swap batteries. I have a sheetload of those little m12 batteries though, so I just swap when it's dead.

I was thinking about those the other day. I started a thread back in 2011 about them and was curious how they lasted

I think an m12 XC would be more annoying because of the odd shape.

But honestly I can't even tell I have the little m12 battery plugged in. It's in a good spot where you don't bump it or anything.

I like the jacket. Winter is too cold no matter where you live.

I've had my heated jacket for a year (or two) and my only complaint is that it has no hood. When I bought it, this jacket was the only option (red no hood). I still wear it every cool day and use the heat on cold days.

The durability of the actual outside material is excellent. I've had plenty of times where I thought for sure it would rip, but there wasn't a mark on the jacket. The left hand pocket did rip at some point though, so the inside of the pocket leads to the inside oft he jacket. It's obviously not a deal breaker to me, but the pockets weren't all that tough.

A contractor that I work with has the hoodie and he loves it! He can't stop talking about it.

Just got the hoodie.
It was really cold the last couple days, so I wore a pullover hoodie over it. It definitely helps. I'm not dissapointed.

It heats the body but I find only my arms, fingers, and feet get cold.
So I never bothered purchasing one, I just wear thermal shirts, hoodie, carhart jacket and i'm warm all day. :)
