The Best Heated Winter Jackets and Hoodies for Men and Women

Today we review the Best heated Jackets in 2022 by comparing each product’s heating options, quality, fit, and durability. This buyer’s guide will illustrate the best-heated jacket and why each heated garment would be worth your consideration.

What is Heated Clothing?

Heating Clothing was invented in 2001 by MET5 as a mobile evolution to the original Electric Blanket. Heated apparel today is now washable, portable, and heats clothing by way of (waterproof) carbon fiber heating pads located inside the clothing. Typically charged by Lithium-ion batteries, the Best Heated Jackets can run up to 8 hours on a single charge and even charge your cell phone via a USB port

Types of Heated Clothing:

There are many types of heated apparel in the market, including jackets, vests, gloves, pants, and even hats. Today’s heated clothing reviews will focus on the most popular garment – The Heated Jacket.

Check out the many other heated clothes available based on your winter activities, like snow blowing, hunting, fishing, winter sports, motorcycle, or snowmobile rides.  Many types of heated apparel now interconnect to the same battery power source for full-body heating.

First, let’s find the Heated jacket and Hoodie, followed by the Best Heated Vest for winter activities and to keep you extra warm this winter.

Best “Value” Heated Jacket – Ororo 7.4v

ORORO Women's Slim Fit Heated Jacket with Battery Pack and Detachable Hood (Black,S)

Why We Like It

Probably one of the “best values in heated jackets” on the market  – is The Ororo heated jacket.  While it lacks some features from our Best Heated Jacket pick from Dewbu, the Ororo jacket also features a warm but detachable hood when less protection from the cold, rain, or snow is adequate. 

Because of the great value of this brand, Ororo is one of the undisputed best-heated clothing brands in the world.

Specifications

  • Three temperature settings
  • Three heating zones
  • 7.4 Volt Lithium-Ion Battery (U.L. Certified
  • Phone Charging Capability
  • Up to 10 hours of continuous heating
  • Two colors (Black & Blue)
  • USB port for Mobile Phone Charging
  • Machine Washable (Remove battery first)

Our Takeaway:

This Ororo heated coat is an affordable jacket, with the built-in features of a very well-built jacket, including; a waterproof, windproof shell, four large pockets, and a durable YKK zipper. Features found in more expensive brands, for sure.

Another great option with this model – is that the four legs adjust independently, allowing you to set it up in spots where the ground is not entirely even without any difficulties.

Best “Premium” Heated Jacket – Milwaukee Heated Jacket

Milwaukee M12 Heated Jacket Kit - Battery and Charger Included (Large, Black)

Why We Like It

If you’re after a premium heated work jacket and can afford to go big, the Milwaukee heated jacket is definitely worth the consideration.  With 12 Volt battery power, interchangeable with the M18 (18 Volt) Milwaukee system, this coat offers not only great styling and fit but incredible warmth.

Available in Unisex sizing – The Milwaukee Women’s heated jacket sizes, as well as Men’s Milwaukee heated jacket sizes, can both be seen by clicking the link below:

Milwaukee offers a slew of features, like integration with their wildly popular M12 Red lithium-ion charging system, 5 zone heating, three heat control settings, and a revolutionary “quick-charge” button that warms the jacket three times quicker.

Specifications

  • M12 (12 volts) Red Lithium Battery and Charger included
  • 3-Heat Temperature Control Settings
  • 5 – Carbon Fiber Heating Zones
  • Attractive Ripstop – Quilted Polyester Shell
  • The “Quick-Charge” button warms the coat 3-Times faster.
  • Wind and Weatherproof Soft Shell 
  • Two Colors – Black and Olive
  • Unisex Sizing – Small to 3XL

Our Takeaway:

While it’s true that Premium products also carry a Premium Price – We think this coat is worth the cost. Especially if you work outdoors and need the toughness that the Milwaukee brand is known for.

Everything Milwaukee Tools does is first class, and they found a way to build in a ton of features with this jacket, like; Free Flex Mobility Gussets to increase freedom of movement, double stitched seams, wind and waterproof polyester shell, adjustable cuffs and waist, and drop tail extended back.

After all, who needs frozen air climbing up your back every time you bend over 🙂

Additionally, with this jacket, if you already own battery-powered Milwaukee power tools – M12 Red LIthium-Ion battery system, that battery or the Milwaukee M18 (18v) battery is interchangeable with the power pack used to warm this jacket.

Best Heated Jacket For Work – DeWalt – 20 Volt

DEWALT Unisex Adult With 2.0ah Battery and Charger DEWALT Heated Lightweight Soft Shell Jacket, Black, Medium US

Why We Like It

DeWalt is one of the best work equipment manufacturers in the world. This coat is no exception, providing built-in engineering, comfort, and safety features – other heated jackets do not.  Available in Men’s and Women’s sizes, this is easily the best-heated jacket for working outdoors.

Specifications

  • 3 – Heated Panel Zones
  • 3 – Temperature Control Settings
  • 20 Volt Lithium- Ion Battery and Charger Included
  • Fully Adjustable Cuffs and Waistband
  • Unisex Sizing – Small to 3XL
  • Durable Waterproof Shell
  • Warm Fleece Lining
  • Reflective Piping For Illuminated Safety
  • Cold Weather Wind-Break Zipper Design

Our Takeaway

When we looked at the best-heated work coats, we came away with one clear choice – DeWalt.  Not because it offers the most heating zones – with only three zones, it is not the warmest heating coat on the market. However, if you work outside, you’re generating a lot of body heat. 

Instead, DeWalt shines by Incorporating other more essential features, such as reflective piping – a slim fit that won’t get in the way of your work, and adjustable cuffs and waistband. 

In addition, it connects with the tried and true 20-volt max battery system. That feature alone is enough to seal the deal for buyers using this jacket with other battery-powered DeWalt power tools they own.

Based on the value of this work jacket and all the additional features noted above, you can see why we nominated the DeWalt Heated Jacket as the best-heated jacket for working outside.

Best Heated Jacket with “Hand Warmers” – Ptadhus 7.4V

PTAHDUS Men’s Heated Jacket Soft Shell, Heated Performance Jacket Soft Shell with Hand Warmer (X-Large, Includes 7.4V Battery Pack) Black

Why We Like It

While we all can appreciate the upper body comfort of a heated jacket, the Ptadhus heated jacket goes a step further – targeting the front pocket areas as heat zone panels (hand warmers) for hand warmth. 

Some other heated jackets have hand zones, like the Dewbu brand; Dewbu also distributes heat to the “arm” zones. 

The Ptadhus does not offer arm zone heating, so more energy is devoted to the chest and hand-warming zones of the heated jacket.

It’s a good idea for those who lack enough circulation to warm their hands in winter. After all, once your hands and feet are cold, your entire body is cold!

For the feet, you will need to look at heated socks for warmth, but for hand warmth only, the Ptadhus heated coat has covered you.

Specifications

  • Carbon Fiber Heating Elements
  • 5 Heating Zones – Including Hand Warmers
  • 7.4 Volt lithium-ion battery with Charger
  • Durable Wind and Weatherproof Soft Shell 
  • Machine Washable
  • 3- Temperature Settings with LED control
  • Women’s Style comes with a Hood
  • Two Colors for Men and Women styles

Our Takeaway

We admire manufacturers when they respond to the market needs, in this case, by adding heating zones for the hands.  It doesn’t matter how warm the rest of you may be; if your hands are frozen, it will be challenging to do any outside activity.

Best Motorcycle Heated Jacket – “Venture” 12V – Heated Motorcycle Jacket

Venture Heat Motorcycle Heated Jacket Liner with Bluetooth Control, 7 Heating Zones 78W - Men's (XL)

Why We Like It

Motorcycle enthusiasts all know – when you’re traveling down the road at 70 mph on an early spring or late fall 50-degree day – It’s COLD.  The Venture heated jacket with a 12-volt (78 watts) charging system is the ideal choice. 

Designed specifically for riders, the heated jacket plugs into your motorcycle battery for continuous all-day warmth. One of the best tools you can have on board.

The Venture heated motorcycle jacket is also one of the few heated jackets that interface via Bluetooth control with your mobile phone app.  The purchase includes a pouch for portability and storing the jacket in panniers.

With a slim-fit design, this heated jacket can also be used as a heated coat or “liner” under your regular motorcycle jacket.  In addition, Venture offers a complete line of heating apparel designed to connect with and be used with their heated coat.

Specifications

  • 7 – Heating zones (Sleeves, Chest, Back, and Collar)
  • 3- Temperature control settings – LED button on the jacket  
  • 10- Temperature control settings with Bluetooth app.
  • Wind and Water Resistant
  • Machine washable
  • Stow-away pouch for easy storage in a pannier
  • 12-volt Lithium Battery with connectivity to your motorcycle, ATV, or snowmobile auxiliary socket
  • Unlimited heated run-time (with 12 volt riding equipment plug-in)

Our Takeaway

While certainly not ideal or designed to be everyone’s daily heated jacket, the Venture heated motorcycle jacket was specifically made with the outdoor motor enthusiast in mind.  Whether that involves a motorcycle, ATV, or pushing snow on your snowmobile, you can stay warm with this jacket.

Best Heated Hunting Jacket – Makita “Camo” 18v

 Makita DCJ201Z2XL 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Mossy Oak Heated Jacket, Camo,2X-Large

Why We Like It

Makita is one of the top-rated power tool manufacturers in the world.  The Makita heated jacket incorporates all their engineering and know-how into a premier heated hunting jacket and heated work jacket. 

One caution to those who do not already use or have Makita battery-powered tools, the 18-volt lithium-ion battery and charger are sold separately (not included with heated jackets).

Specifications

  • Longest available heated run time – up to 28 hours
  • Removable sleeves – converts to a Vest
  • Works with any Makita 18-volt lithium-ion battery system
  • Note:  Battery and Charger are Sold Separately
  • Fast heating
  • On/Off Heat button LED lighting
  • 3 – Heating Control Settings
  • 3- Heat Zones – Chest and Back
  • Knitted storm cuffs, fleece-lined collar, and drawstring waist 
  • Camouflage Pattern – ideal for Hunting

Our Takeaway

Depending on the cold outside weather, many hunters (especially bow-hunters) prefer the freedom of hunting with a vest on vs. full sleeves. The Makita heated jacket is one of the only “convertible” heated jackets that allow you to use it as a Heated Hunting Vest – and in this case – a Camouflage Vest.

And, with an industry-leading heated run time of up to 28 hours – you can stay still in the woods all day with the Makita heated jacket and still be warm. 

Reminders: Makita lithium-ion batteries are sold separately, and the 18 Volt Makita battery will be a little bulky in the storage pocket.  And lastly, at nearly $400 (without a battery), this heated jacket is not for the faint of heart (or wallet).

ORORO Heated Hoodie with Battery Pack (Small, Black)

Why We Like It

When the days are Cool – but not super cold- you may want to be out and about in a lightweight heated hoodie -and still, you can use some quick heat when you need it.  The Ororo heated hoodie is one of the best-heated hoodies on the market.

Ororo is also the only heated hoodie we reviewed that offers a combination of polyester (waterproof) and cotton (comfort, breathable) fabric.

Runner Up:  “Venustas” Heated Hoodie

Venustas Heated Hoodie with Battery Pack (Unisex), Heated Hoodie for Men and Women Black

Like our editor’s choice of best-heated hoodie from Ororo – The Venustas heated hoodie is another go-to hoodie, which offers even more (five) heating elements. 

Normally priced at or around the price of the Ororo hoodie, the Venustas brand is a little less known and is 100% cotton (no polyester) – but it does carry two additional heat zones at both shoulders.

Specifications

  • 5 – Heating Carbon Heat Pads

  • Premium Zipper
  • Storm cuffs and hem.
  • 100% Cotton
  • Double thickness Hood

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

If you’re buying a heated jacket for the first time, you may have a few questions running through your mind. 

In this FAQ section, we take a look at a few of the most commonly asked questions and help you make an informed buying decision:

How does a Heated Jacket Work?

The modern Heated jacket is quite simple in its design. Heated jackets have a “heater” built into the coat’s lining. This includes Multiple heating “pads” (3 – 5 typically) located in the jacket’s chest, back, and sometimes collar or arms.

The heating pads are usually made with carbon fibers and are battery-powered by a 7.4v or larger, Lithium-ion battery. 

The lithium battery is pre-charged on a typical A/C current, then “plugged in” to the heated jacket – and stored in a separate interior pocket.

Are Heated Jackets Safe?

Because the heating elements are carbon fiber and contained in waterproof cases inside the heated jacket, heated jackets, if used as designed, are safe from electric shock.  Heated jackets are cordless, with no AC electric connection.

Most modern heated jackets are machine washable – don’t forget to remove the exposed lithium battery first!

How do you Charge Heated Jackets?

Heated jackets are typically powered by concealed lithium-ion batteries (no wires), pre-charged via your typical household current using the manufacturer’s battery charger.  Just plug in and Go – No moving parts or wiring to worry about.

How Long Does a  Heated Jacket Stay Warm?

The answer depends on what size lithium-ion battery the manufacturer provides for heating the jacket. Most Heated jackets will stay warm between 6-8 hours on a full charge, whereas some manufacturers offer heated run times that range up to 12 or 28 hours.

Typical lithium batteries used for heated jackets are a minimum of 7.4 volts. However, power tool companies like DeWalt, Makita, or Milwaukee provide 12, 18, or even 24-volt batteries – interchangeable with a complete line of their power tools.

Can you Charge a Mobile phone with a Heated Jacket?

Yes, you can quickly charge a mobile phone via a USB port included with the heated jacket battery pack. Almost all modern heated jackets have a USB port for charging devices – or in some cases, multiple USB ports (DeWalt), to charge mobile phones.

You will, of course, need to carry a USB mobile cord to do so.

What type of Heated Jacket is the Best?

The answer depends on “How” you plan to use your Heated Jacket.  Our recommendations are as follows;

  • For all-around comfort around the home or daily errands, we like the Dewbu and Ororo heated jackets the best for overall warmth, style, and value.
  • For work-related tasks, like construction, farm chores, etc., we like the comfort, fit, safety, and durability features of the DeWalt heated jacket.
  • If money isn’t an issue, the Milwaukee heated jacket checks all the boxes for work, play, and even style – with its quilted high-end premium heated jacket design.
  • Lastly, most heated jackets only have a heated run time of 6-8 hours per charge.  If your work or play requires longer periods outside, choose a heated jacket with longer “heated” run times.  Ororo is rated at 12 hours of “heated” run time, and the Makita heated jacket boasts an outstanding 28 hours of heated run time per charge.

Conclusion

Today’s modern Heated Apparel has come a long way since its inception -20 years ago. Heated clothing is now available for just about any cold winter activity – well, except one – The polar plunge, but those people are just plain crazy 🙂

Going about your daily tasks, work, or play in the winter can be, for some, miserably cold.  The heated jacket is a “tool” that helps alleviate those cold-weather blues. 

If you spend your winters outside for work or play, you know how important it is to keep warm in icy cold temperatures, and just In case you missed it – you don’t have to freeze outside anymore.

That is due to the invention of heated clothing for virtually every body part.  Originally called the “electric jacket,” this review includes the modern version of the best-heated jackets, vests, and hoodies on the market. 

Heated clothing adds that extra layer of warmth and protection from the cold (and makes those freezing-cold – vinyl car seats more bearable).

In addition, because of the vast array of competitive manufacturers supplying heated clothes, the prices now range from very affordable, and the choices for snow blowing, hunting, working, or playing is vast.

So choose well, based on your preferred winter activities, and give one of these marvels of winter apparel.
