Makita has released its latest heated jacket, helping to protect wearers against the elements. Powered by the reliable 18V LXT battery, this new warm and stylish jacket is a must-have for cold, harsh jobsite environments. The DCJ205 offers maximum comfort and durability thanks to the five heating zones, users benefit from continuous warmth in the chest and back areas whilst also having control over the three heat level settings. A fully charged battery lasts from seven hours on the highest setting, to 29 hours on low when powered by the BL1850B 5.0Ah battery. The jacket’s olive coloured, polyester outer makes it waterproof and windproof, whilst the inner fleece lining helps keep the user warm and comfortable even with the power off. It is also equipped with a two-way zip, offering more flexibility when wearing a tool belt, as well as six pockets. Additionally, it is fully washable and tumble dry safe, so cleaning is easy and hassle-free without damaging its heating capabilities.
