The winter months are approaching quickly, which means it’s time to stock up on cold-weather gear to help you combat cooler climates. Milwaukee has got you covered with their heated gear and apparel line that is specifically designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and protect you from wind, rain, and snow. They lock in heat for up to 8 hours and are made of durable reinforced fabrics to maximize utility and extend product life. These jackets reach your desired heating temperature in 2.5 minutes, while most other heated jackets can take up to 8 minutes to heat up completely. They are reinforced for durability, and water resistant to keep you warm and dry for your entire workday. While you may already be familiar with Milwaukee heated jackets, they have now extended their line for added functionality, keeping the heat close to you and locking it in with mid- and base-layers.

The New Heated Workskin

Milwaukee has a wide range of heated workwear that can be worn alone or with other pieces. They recently released the rechargeable Heated Workskin Midweight Base Layer that is perfect for layering under jackets, vests, or utility gear. These shirts are powered by Milwaukee’s cordless REDLITHIUM USB 3.0AH Battery (included with the Kit) and have a one-touch LED controller allowing you to select from 2 heat settings to keep you comfortable through the fall and winter. The carbon fiber heating elements distribute heat to your chest and back while fleece lined sleeves keep your arms warm. The quick heat feature helps reach your desired temperature 3x faster than other leading heated apparel. This is the perfect base layer because it is lightweight while maintaining full range of motion and comfort, and it locks in heat better than most heavyweight jackets.

The Beloved Axis Vest

The Axis vest is another great heated gear option, keeping heat in a mid-layer that can be worn alone or with a top layer. It comes in men’s and women’s sizes and is a great option for layering over jackets and long sleeves, or under larger coats. This vest comes with a single-touch LED controller that has 3 heat control settings to fit your environment. AXIS Ripstop Polyester provides a lightweight, compressible design that can be used as an outer shell or a mid-layer vest and protects you from wind and water.

Bundle Up

Adding heated gear to your work wear keeps you warm throughout the entire workday without having to add on bulky layers. They are a great option for people who work outside in colder climates and need more mobility on the jobsite. The Milwaukee heated gear and apparel range is designed to deliver warmth and comfortability that lasts. Along with the Axis Vest and Workskin base layer, they also have a heated hoodie (now available in a new Navy Blue color), rain shell, lightweight Axis jacket, TOUGHSHELL jacket, and gloves. There are endless layering options that are possible with this line to fit any environment. Milwaukee’s advanced heating technology and durable fabrics are unbeatable, making their heated work gear a must-have for the cold months ahead.
