Milwaukee has taken their M12 Heated Jacket and spruced it up a bit. Pictured here is their new Realtree AP heated jacket. The new jacket features three carbon fiber heating zones that are positioned in key areas to keep your core nice and toasty. There are three settings – high, medium, or low, so that you can keep comfortably warm in any setting.
Unlike the red M12 heated jacket which features its heat controller on the lapel, the Realtree AP jacket’s control is concealed just inside the lapel. This way, the controller’s blinking light doesn’t give you away. The camo version can be used with Milwaukee M12, M12 RedLithium, or M12 XC batteries, and you get up to 6 hours of continuous heat on a single battery charge.
Pricing has not yet been determined, but I would expect for the jackets and kits to be slightly more expensive than the red M12 heated jackets. The Realtree AP jackets will be available in Fall 2011.

Update: MSRP will be $199 for the camo jacket kit, and $149 for just the bare jacket sans charger and battery,
