They were this price with a battery a few days ago, but guess that's dead now. Doesn't seem like a great product though TBH.

I really thought about it with the battery but without it..I might pay 19. I agree I think they tried to copy Milwaukee and failed.

IMO these things are good if you're sitting down in the cold only, if you're moving your body will warm you up and its better to layer more clothes on then use something that provides warmth.... it feels like my body produces less of its own body heat when the heater is on and im just as cold in the end. Just my .02

I bought the other day when it included the battery. Will give it a shot for 70 bucks since it came with a battery and charger I could always use a spare for the truck and shed. I wouldn't do it if it doesn't include battery. Just wait for it to drop again

Its actually a pretty nice jacket.. no sure where the complaint is. Battery is a bit heavy but it has a usb port so that's useful

I posted the deal the other day with the battery. It actually works with the Milwaukee adapter and M12 battery if you have one.

Cool idea... but be sure to look at the one star reviews - if you're thinking about buying. I don't understand everything being said, but there's a fair number of low reviews

This is tempting. I already have the m12 hoodie, if I could sell the rigid usb power source. I could be into this jacket pretty cheap.

I feel they might be handy for ice fishin, or standing around watching my kids play soccer in cold weather. Still I think I'll pass until I get into m12 stuff.

Well, They ARE the same company....sooooo.

Emerson Electric owns Milwaukee, Ridgid, Ryobi. And they are all made by TTI.

Milwaukee = Professional Grade
Ridgid = Mid Grade, Pro-sumer
Ryobi = General User, Weekender

Think of it like Lexus, Toyota and the now dead Scion

So it would kinda make sense that it's not quite as good as the Milwaukee.

All of this being said, I ordered the version with the battery last week. Really unsure if I was goign to keep it but wanted to try it. It's a nice lighter weight jacket. The heating is only on the front top chest area and the back top. I wish there was some heating in the pockets so I would warm up my hand when blowing snow. At the price I paid with the battery, I think I'll keep it. But I wouldn't have paid much more for it. Not that it's not worth it (because I think it's worth at least $100) but because I'm cheap and I already have too many jackets. Wink

Oh and they run quite large. I'm 5'10" and about 175lbs. Usually in jackets a Large is about right for me, because a medium is just too small. But in this case, the Medium is even a little large for me, the larger was freakin huge.
