Milwaukee has been creating winter gear and apparel that outlasts and outperforms all others in the industry since 2010. For over 10 years, they have continued to improve and expand their product line to include various styles of heated jackets, along with winter hats, gloves, and other apparel. This year they are expanding their line to add new Heavy Duty Flex Work Pants, the Workskin Midweight Base Layer, and some exciting new features to their best-selling heated gear.

New Heavy Duty Flex Work Pants

With the introduction of Heavy Duty Flex Work Pants, Milwaukee now offers full-body workwear solutions! Driven by the everyday needs of contractors and tradesmen, the Heavy Duty Flex Work Pants are built with a custom, broken-in cotton/polyester/spandex blend to provide no stiffness right off the shelf. The brushed interior gives a comfortable next-to-skin feel that isn’t stiff or abrasive.

Designed with a knee-to-knee crotch gusset, these work pants allow you to move unrestricted. They also have reinforced high-wear zones and tear-resistant pockets to equip you with everyday workwear solutions that are built to endure the most rugged jobsite conditions. These tough work pants are proven to be 3x stronger than competitive brands such as Carhartt, Timberland, and Dickie’s.

The new Heavy Duty Flex Work Pants are available in a wide range of sizes in both gray and khaki.

The WORKSKIN Midweight Base Layer

The WORKSKIN Midweight Base Layer is an exciting addition to Milwaukee’s Workwear shirt range and continues to deliver premium next-to-skin performance as a part of the WORKSKIN promise. Designed with a moisture wicking midweight polyester/spandex blend, accelerated drying zones, and raglan sleeves, the WORKSKIN Midweight Base Layer is perfect for layering while allowing you to work dry, stay warm, and move freely.

The Upgraded TOUGHSHELL and QUIETSHELL Jackets

Milwaukee has revamped their iconic M12 TOUGHSHELL and QUIETSHELL jackets to be stronger and more long-lasting than ever before. These jackets are now built to have 5X longer life and 80% more stretch than the previous versions because of their upgraded TOUGHSHELL STRETCH Polyester outer layer. Under this waterproof and flexible outer layer is a layer of insulation to lock in heat, followed by carbon fiber coils that generate heat in key areas. The optimized inner liner evenly distributes heat throughout the jacket to keep you warm and comfortable for longer.

When paired with the M12 CP 3.0Ah battery, these jackets will get 50% more runtime than the competition. You can get 12 hours of power on the low-heat setting, 6 hours on medium, or 3 hours on high. The upgraded carbon fiber coils heat up completely in just 2.5 minutes, 3X faster than previous models. These jackets also have a new battery pass-through pocket that allows you to easily move the battery pack to the front or back pockets for improved comfort.

The QUIETSHELL Jacket comes in a Realtree camo pattern, which is great for hunting and other outdoor activities for silent and undetectable movement.

Along with the upgraded TOUGHSHELL and QUIETSHELL jackets, Milwaukee is also bringing back all of their other iconic heated gear styles.
