Walls Outdoor Rockwall Coat

This is a new company to Tools in Action, called Walls Workwear.  I have never heard of them until we received a couple of these jackets.  We were on Periscope when we opened the package at Dan’s and that is when I found out they were sold at Walmart.  A Periscoper told us they sell Wall jackets at Walmart.  My first instinct was to step back and have a negative opinion of them.  Not that I don’t shop at Walmart, but I don’t associate tough work wear with Walmart.  Then I picked up and put on the jacket and...

Truewerk Clothing

We would like to welcome a new addition to the Tools in Action channel, so welcome Truewerks.  You might not be familiar with their clothing line, so you can visit Truewerk and learn a little more about some of their products.  Today we will be looking at their double stitched jacket and their double stitched pants. Before I get started, I had a chance to talk with the owner, Brian, and I have to say he seems like one of the most down to earth people, just cool and laid back.  However when it comes to his clothing, that’s a...

A Hunter’s Paradise – Milwaukee Heated Camo Gear

If you have been following us for a while, you know we are huge fans of the Milwaukee Heated gear.  I own a couple different items such as a jacket and hoodie.  I have to say my favorite jacket is the Milwaukee M12 Camo Heated Jacket.  Between fall, winter and early spring, this is probably my most worn apparel, yes even more than my Cubs hoodie.  I can’t tell you how many people have approached me over the last year and asked about this jacket.  When I tell them it’s a heated jacket, I always get the skeptical look....

New Milwaukee Heated Gear

Milwaukee doesn’t just offer state of the art cool tools, but they also have an insane heated gear department.  I know it’s still summer and some of you don’t want to think about winter, but here we are, thinking about winter time.  While some companies are coming out with one or two different types of heated jackets, Milwaukee has taken it to a whole new level.  Now I wouldn’t say they are turning into an apparel company, but I bet they give some of the apparel companies a run for their money with how many sku numbers they have....

It’s That Time of Year – Heated Jacket Season

Winter is here or at least in the Chicagoland area it is.  I actually woke up yesterday and saw the grass filled with snow.  So I figured it was time to break out my heated jacket and stay warm.  There are a lot to pick from.  Milwaukee started it all and soon followed by Dewalt and Bosch.  This year it looks like Craftsman and Makita are entering the market.  So which one is the right one to pick from?  Well it depends upon what your looking for.  Bottom line, none of the original three are bad options.  If you...

Dewalt Heated Jackets Review

Another heated jacket?  Why, yes it is.  We did the Bosch and the Milwaukee so we thought why not try out the Dewalt Jacket?  One thing I can say is we did time this one right.  Usually we do our winter things in summer and our summer things in winter.  So you have to give us some credit for finally figuring out what month it is.  We got free shipping from on our jackets from Power Tool Super Center which is part of Tool Nut. Dewalt is the late comer to the heated jacket game, which isn’t necessarily a bad...

Bosch 12V Heated Jacket Review

Ever since Milwaukee introduced a heated jacket, everyone has been jumping on board.  We now see Milwaukee, Bosch, Dewalt and Makita out with a different type of heated jacket.  So which one do we like the best?  Well you can check out the video below, but after you read this review, it should give you some hints. Today we are going to talk about the Bosch Heated jacket which runs off their 12V battery.  I was pretty excited when I heard Bosch was introducing a new heated jacket.  I was still a little leery as I really like the...

DeWALT Heated Jackets – Jobsite Tough

Heated jackets seem to be the craze this year.  Look at what Milwaukee has started, now you can get all sorts of styles and colors, even Bosch and Makita have come out with one.  I don’t want to steal the thunder away from DeWALT so let’s just talk about the black and yellow.  For its launch DeWALT has quite a few styles available from camo to a soft shell.  Our test sample is the black hooded jacket.  If you have ever worn a Carhartt this jacket feels identical to that.  It has the same soft lining and rugged jean...

Milwaukee High Visibility Heated Jacket Review – Be Seen

Most of the time I don’t want to be noticed or seen at work.   I don’t want people to see me coming in late for work, leaving early or sleeping.  However when I am actually working and doing something, then I do want to be seen and especially those times where safety comes in to play.  A job site, construction zone, loading dock and hundreds of other places can be very dangerous.  They are loud and a little crazy with lots of stuff going on all at the same time.  While this does make for a fun environment...

M12 M18 Heated Jackets – O my how they have changed

Milwaukee’s clothing line, as Hal from extremehowtomag.com likes to call it, has entered version 2.0.  A lot of changes and new features are available, in a nutshell here is what we know.  The battery holder now has a fuel gauge , which allows you to make sure your pack is full before you head off to Siberia.  A standard usb port has been added to charge your mobile devices like the Power Port which was released a few years ago.  The device fits nicely in a large breast pocket. They even stepped it up a notch and made one for the M18...
