Bosch has come out with a new 12V Max heated hoodie, just in time for the 2020-21 winter season.
The new Bosch heated hoodie, GAA12V-21, looks to be Bosch’s first new release in heated workwear in quite a few years.
At the time of this posting, it’s not quite clear what advancements Bosch has made in that time, but we hope to learn more.
Over at International Tool, they already have a front-page promo on the new Bosch heated hoodie, and also on what looks to be a new heated jacket.
It’s unclear as to whether that’s a new heated jacket, but it does look like it – Bosch’s previous/original heated jacket had silver high-visibility panels and this promo version does not. We’ll look into this.
Here are the promo details:
- Spend $200+ Get a FREE Bosch Hoodie
- Spend $500+ Get a FREE Bosch Heated Hoodie
- Spend $600+ Get a FREE Bosch Heated Jacket
In case it’s not obvious, you have to spend these amounts on Bosch tools.
There are a bunch of other freebies going on at the moment as well. For instance, adding a $500 laser to my cart and they automatically add in a Bosch heated hoodie kit, extra 12V battery, and 12V Max cordless screwdriver bare tool.
So, about the new Bosch heated hoodie, here are some of Bosch’s official marketing claims:
- Large adjustable hood
- 3 zippered pockets
- 3 heat levels
- Lightweight fabric
- 3 quick-warming core heat zones (2 chest zones, 1 lower back)
- Washer and dryer safe
- Fitted sleeves and waist
- Powered by Bosch 12V Max battery
- Included power adapter has USB charging port
Not much more information is available. At the time of this posting, Bosch’s website and retailers are showing that it will only be available in black.
The kits will come with the heated hoodie, GAA12V-21 power adapter with 2.1A USB charging port, a 2.0Ah battery, and 12V Max charger.
Price: $149 for the kit
ETA: December 2020
It’s interesting that Bosch is looking to get back into the heated workwear market, one that Milwaukee Tool has dominated for a few years now.
What’s new? What has changed? Why buy Bosch over competing brands? Hopefully we’ll learn more. But in the meantime, definitely keep the International Tool promo in mind in case you were shopping for new Bosch tools.
