Milwaukee M12 heated Jacket "In The Field" ITF Review



Milwaukee M12 heated Jacket "In The Field" ITF Review

In this video I review the M12 Heated Jacket made by the Milwaukee company, known also for their quality tools.

Quite simply, this jacket utilizes a small but powerful lithium ion batter pack to keep the user warm in cold temperatures by controlling jacket warmth with an easy to use activation system. This is a no brainer.

Now, I never advise to rely on gear (especially gear that is electronically powered) to keep yourself safe/comfortable, skill should always be the most important thing you bring with you in to the woods. That said, this jacket still has great application for any outdoorsman. In a hunting application, being able to turn on a jacket to warm yourself up might give you the extra edge to stay on stand long enough to see that big buck walk by. In a bushcraft application, being light weight is always a positive, you can wear a lot slimmer profile of clothing and still get out when the temperatures are low (again while keeping in mind my statement on skill over gear). It even has applications on a social level (there are other colors and models besides camo).

All in all a well made, effective item. Around the price of a similar quality name brand jacket, along with the compatibility of the power packs between the jacket and Milwaukee tools, this item fills a nice nitch, and does it well.

  1. You can definitely perform better with great gear at your disposal. During winter season, the cold weather can be your greatest enemy and the best way to combat it is to have a good gear that can keep you warm. :)
