Milwaukee Tool’s 2022 men’s and women’s heated gear lineup features its next-generation of jackets, vests and hoodies designed to withstand harsh and cold jobsite conditions. The apparel is equipped with carbon-fibre heating elements and features re-engineered materials and a total portfolio battery upgrade.

The Milwaukee M12 Heated Toughshell Jacket and M12 Heated Toughshell Vest have been engineered to provide 80 per cent more stretch and longer life than previous generations. Crafted with warm insulation and DWR-coated material designed to offer a wind and water-resistant solution for protection from the elements, the jacket and vest are powered by the company’s M12 Redlithium battery technology. They also feature a battery-pass thru pocket design that allows for front or back battery placement, providing versatility and comfort to match to the situation.

The company’s M12 Heated Axis Jackets and Vests deliver heat built for lightweight durability. Redesigned to reach 3X faster heat, these heated products use lightweight and durable carbon-fiber heating elements. As with the Toughshell, a hidden battery pass-thru pocket construction allows for front or back battery placement. The jackets and vests are constructed with re-engineered Axis Ripstop polyester fabric and reinforced high-wear zones.

Available in both men’s and women’s versions, the M12 Heated Hoodie delivers heat built for complete comfort combining a durable cotton/polyester fleece and comfortable jersey lining with a closer-to-body fit. The raglan sleeve construction and four-way stretch fabric allows for free range of motion.
