With winter approaching and chilly mornings on the horizon a new battery-powered heated jacket has been launched.

The new camouflage M12 heated jacket from Milwaukee is powered by a M12 Redlithium-Ion battery and has three sewn-in carbon fibre heating zones to distribute heat to core body areas.

It features three heat settings and Milwaukee says it delivers continuous heat for up to six hours per battery charge. The battery is operated with an “easy-touch” heat controller hidden in the lapel.

“It is stylish, practical and comfortable and features a multi-layered soft shell, which utilises new cold weather technology to actively warm the body and stimulate blood circulation,” said a spokesman for Milwaukee.

The HJ Camo comes in sizes medium to extra large and costs £238.80 including 1.5Ah battery and charger.
