Makita Heated Jackets at GIE 2018

Winter is coming, and we dread those days where we need to work out in the cold weather. However, the new Makita heated jackets that were shown at the GIE Expo look like a cure for what has traditionally ailed us.

These heated jackets come in a variety of flavors: some have removable sleeves, some exist as vests, some have the Mossy Oak camo pattern, and some offer high visibility.

The Makita heated jackets have three settings for customizable control of your heating situation, as well as a variety of heating zone formats that depend on the model that you’re working with (chest, shoulders, pockets, across the back). All of the heated jackets run off of the Makita 18V LXT Battery platform.

We’ve got an exciting Heated Jacket Shootout publishing soon, so keep an eye out for that article when it hits the ProToolReviews site.
