By Marta Macedo Friday, 4th November 2022 0 Comments Stay Warm This Winter With Makita’s Heated Jackets Makita has released its latest heated jacket, helping to protect wearers against the toughest of the elements. Powered by the reliable 18V LXT battery, this new warm and stylish jacket is a must-have for cold, harsh job site environments, or for outdoor leisure in the cold winter months. The latest DCJ205 heated jacket is here to offer maximum comfort and durability. Thanks to the five heating zones, users benefit from continuous warmth in the chest and back, whilst also having control over the three heat level settings. The powerful 18V LXT battery offers even longer continuous runtimes, with a fully charged battery lasting seven hours on the highest setting, 11 hours on medium, and 29 hours on low (when powered by the BL1850B 5.0Ah battery). Customers can use existing batteries or purchase one with the DCJ205 as a kit. The jacket’s olive-coloured, polyester outer lining makes it waterproof and windproof, whilst the inner fleece lining helps keep workers and adventurers alike warm and comfortable even with the power off. Additionally, it is fully washable and dryable, so cleaning is easy and hassle-free without damaging its heating capabilities. It is also equipped with a two-way zip, offering more flexibility when wearing a tool belt, as well as six pockets. And, last but not least, this lightweight jacket is available in a range of sizes, catering to sizes M to 2XL. Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, says: “We are very excited to be releasing our new LXT heated jacket. We understand the harsh conditions that our customers are faced with during the colder months, and have designed this product with comfort, durability and style in mind. Even without the aid of our LXT battery, this jacket is an excellent product that will prove invaluable both on site but also in other outdoors environments.” Check out your new must-have jacket right here, or find out more about Makita’s extensive range of heated clothing and power tools on the company’s website.
