Default Milwaukee M-12 heated jackets $99 at Home Depot

I've been on this board for 3 years and never been able to post a 'screamin' deal, but I think this will be my first.

I was in Home Depot last night and they had a bunch of the Milwaukee heated jackets on closeout for around half price. They didn't have ANY jackets earlier in the week, so I don't know where these came from. Regardless, I bought model 2345 (size 2x) which normally sells for $199 for $99!!!! The prices seem to vary a little, with the XL selling for $109 and the L selling for $119. This was all at my store, zip 55344.

These are BLACK jackets, and are the FULL KIT which includes the jacket, charger, and battery. My store did have ONE red jacket that had been special ordered. I left them with that one, and one black one.

Don't know if it is just local, but if it is perhaps if your store has any they will price match. They are still showing $199 online.

Please post your location if you were able to get one. I think this is a fantastic deal, and wanted to share it with you guys since I've gotten so many good deals off this site.

Nice heads up!

I wanted to buy one of these for my girlfriend since she freezes in 50 degree weather (I know, it's an anomaly) but they were not fashionable enough.

I saw one black 2x in a southern SLC store (near Kearns) but no pricing. I didn't bother to inquire as a 2x would be a tent on me.

The 2345s are the way to go. The 1st gen 2344s lacked a few features like fuel gage and usb on the battery pack, and pocket warmers.

They now sell a women's cut which is way better for the ladies. You'll pay $200 for the kit but they're nice. However, no fuel gage or usb on the battery pack (I don't know why) and no pocket warmers.

Bosch and Dewalt are also in the game, look for the write-up at Toolguyd.

Interesting, although axing the pocket warmers wasn't a smart move

Bosch and Dewalt who?

Are you able to control which heat elements get turned on? The description says the jacket has three heat zones: back, chest, and front pockets for your hands. Can you turn the front pockets off and just have the chest and back heat elements on?

No. It's all on or all off at either high, medium or low.

and '03, I agree, stupid to eliminate the pocket warmers for the ladies.

For those who don't know they also make an M18 adapter for these so they're not dedicated to the M12 platform. And a cigarette lighter plug with breakaway (in case you forget), so they become a more viable option for motorcycles maybe and definitely for heavy equipment with no heater or perhaps heater but no doors.

Mine has two separate switches you can operate independently. One controls the pockets only and the other controls the chest and back. Both switches have a high, medium, and low setting.

Thank you, good to know. At work where I would wear this I would almost never be able to stick my hands in my pockets and battery life would be very important so being able to switch off the hand warmers would be very 'handy'

I don't know what work entails for you, but also consider one of the new hoodies. You really want the heat zones right against your body or they don't do much for you, and end up cranking the heat trying to compensate for air space. You could wear a jacket over a hoodie and theoretically press the hoodie in closer to your body. I've got a gray hoodie and love it - it's damn nice and warm even without the heating elements. The hoodies alone retail for $99, but this is no batteries and no charger.

For the jackets Milwaukee claims 6 hours on high and 18 hours on low IIRC, if you use the M18 standard capacity battery. I've only used the regular M12 batteries and it generally works out as advertised: about 2 hours heat on high, 6 on low. I don't know what an M12 XC would net.

My wife takes hers to the movie theater (no joke) 'cause even as fall is coming on they still seem to have the a/c set for sweltering summer temps.

Has anyone else found these on sale?
Both my local stores don't know anything about a sale & don't carry any in the store.
Thanks!

The stores by me had a display of these last Christmas. My guess would be that the stores that had leftovers are just trying to get rid of them.

Couldn't find them at any local stores, despite one store showing "limited inventory" and not just "out of stock".

My store has an "M12" display at the front of one of the tool aisles. The jackets were there on the bottom shelf, but there wasn't one out, i.e. none on display.

After reading reviews of the jackets we decided to get hoodies and wear regular coats over them. Wife has a medium since there isn't a women's size on the hoodie. Doesn't fit her perfect but she's happy with it.

This display has been looking rather sparse at my local store. I hope they're just slow to bring in the Fuel stuff and not doing away with it. OTOH Milwaukee must pay dearly for that position in Home Depot.....
