It runs on the brand’s 18V LXT battery platform, which powers 5 different heating elements located at the left and right chest, back, and side pockets. It has 3 heat settings, and with the 6.0Ah battery, it can run over 37 hours on the low setting.

The Makita Cordless Heated Jacket uses a polyester shell that repels wind and water, and it retains its internal temperature very well. Five pockets, as well as a clear windowed pocket for credentials, give you options for storage.
