Dewalt Heated Jacket
A Dewalt Heated Jacket could become your new best friend this winter. We tested this jacket and we have all the details right here for you.
We'll tell you why we love this jacket so much. This review is very in-depth.
Since there are so many heated jackets on the market it can be tricky to decide which one is right for you so I hope to help you make the right decision for your jacket needs.
If you don't use power tools you may have never heard of Dewalt. I won't get into the brand too much but I will say that they're one of the leaders in the power tool industry and they make very high quality tools that are built to last.
When you see the Dewalt name you know that you can count on it to be tough and last a long time.
The other tricky thing is that there are a lot of Dewalt heated jackets. On Amazon alone you can find dozens of different models of Dewalt heated jackets.
With Dewalt heated jackets all the electrical components are the same, the heated elements are the same and the quality is the same.
So your decision will depend on whether you want things like a hood, big pockets, extra insulation, extra safety feature or waterproofing.
Let's get into it.
Dewalt is definitely more concerned about function than fashion but that doesn't mean their jackets are ugly.
Personally I like the look of the Dewalt jackets. They look tough and manly which may not be for everybody but I like it.
As I said before, there are many different models of Dewalt heated jackets so you have some options in terms of style.
Quality is where Dewalt heated jackets really shine.
These jackets are practically bulletproof. They're designed for working in the construction industry so they're able to take a lot of abuse.
You can be really rough with them and they'll stand up to just about anything.
That same quality can be expected from all the electrical components too.
As for warmth there are varying degrees of warmth depending on which model you go with.
Some of them have more insulation than others so if you want a really warm one then you should find the one that has the most insulation.
You can also get just the zip up hoodie which is really popular because it can be worn on it's own on a warmer day or it can be used as a base layer under a heavy jacket.
The heating elements get extremely hot which is awesome. They warm up quickly and the heat is incredibly soothing on a cold day.
As for comfort my favorite Dewalt heated jacket in terms of comfort is the zip up hoodie. I just enjoy wearing a hoodie cause I like the pocket placement and it just feels good.
Then of course you can put another jacket over top of it if you need more warmth.
Some of the bulkier jackets aren't the most comfortable thing I've ever worn but they're definitely good enough.
This jacket runs off of the 20V Max battery, the same one that you use with your drill or saw.
This makes for fantastic run time. You can get up to 7.5 hours of heat time with this battery the only drawback is that those batteries are quite large and you have to carry one around in the pocket at all times in order to get the heat.
The charge time is very quick. Only takes about 1 hour for a full charge.
The heat time is perfect for a day of work.
These jackets run anywhere from $150 all the way up to $200 depending on which model you get but remember that does not include the battery.
You either have to buy the battery separate or just use the one you already have for your drill if you have one.
This makes it a much better option for someone who already owns a Dewalt 20V drill or saw kit.
In my opinion this is good value because you're getting a premium quality product that will last you a long time.
Dewalt Heated Jacket - Final Thoughts
In the end, this Dewalt heated jacket did impress me. I love the amount of heat it generates and the length of time the battery lasts.
No other heated jacket will hold a charge this long so that's a great characteristic that will probably sway a lot of people's decision.
The quality is fantastic and the versatility is great too.
All in all you cannot find a better heated jacket for working in the trades or the construction industry.
