I've been seeing these in the advertisement flyers and have been wanting to see them in person. So tonight I ended up at The Anderson's in C-bus (large general store) and tried on the heated jackets and hoodies. Couldn't pull the trigger on any of them because I've already spent $300 on a new jacket at this website this year but I think the could be useful. I decided the black hoodie would prob be the best route for me and use it as a mid layer. Is anybody using them?

Yes, the jacket is OK, but not for extreme cold. It just isn’t very heavy. You would be better off with the heated vest or hoodie under a heavy jacket or coat. That seems to be the ticket for extreme cold

Can you share some more details about this heated jacket? Besides, do you know any places where I can order a couple of new hoodies? I'm going to study in another place, and it's cold there during the winter. I want to purchase some stuff before I leave

I have the action heat base layer. Wore it last year and it was nice. Kept you warm without running the entire time and not needing bulky layers. My issue is that I went to wear it this past weekend and it did not work. Battery is charged but the shirt would not turn on. I certainly did not get my money's worth out of it.

Any place that sells Milwaukee or Dewalt tools should carry these. The smaller dealers may not carry many or the full line but a moderate to large department or home improvement store should have most, if not all, the full line. In these times all the sizes and styles may not be in stock but one should be able to find a sample to inspect.

As has been mentioned, the best use is as a base layer under a jacket. Run time is dependent on battery size and how long one runs the heating element. The store I work at sells both brands and those own them that I have talked to really like them. The most frequent complaint is the battery and the weight it adds. This has primarily been from ice fishermen who often move around a fair bit chasing fish. Deer hunter's aren't as critical as it is common to hunt from stands here. Hunter's who move more voice similar opinions as the fishermen but seem a bit more accepting as the warmth is appreciated when one stops.

Few have been returned and those have primarily been gifts that did not fit or were duplicates. There have been a very few that did not work properly but that has been a very small minority.

I've toyed with buying a set but the price has put me off. I really don't need one but it would be nice for my wife if she were to accompany me to the deer stand. That may be the reason for my reticence- it is one places I go that she has no desire to join me!
