A number of readers emailed in, asking for help finding Milwaukee M12 heated gear in their desired style and size in stock. Unfortunately, I haven’t been very successful in this.
Here’s the bad news – it doesn’t look like stock is going to be replenished. Retailers are reporting that SKUs are “seasonally out of stock,” “temporarily unavailable,” and backordered (but not available for purchase).
Milwaukee says that their heated gear selling season starts in August and ends in March, and it looks like a lot of SKUs are completely sold out already, except for maybe some of the less popular sizes.
Ohio Power Tool has very limited stock left. For instance, the M12 heated toughshell jacket kit in red is only available in large. The toughshell jacket-only in black is available in XL. The camo jacket-only is available in small. The Axis vest kit is only available in small. Good news – the M12 heated Axis jacket-only in black is still available in several sizes. The Axis jacket kit is available in small, medium, and 3XL.
Acme Tools has some M12 heated gear still in stock, and it looks like there are some SKUs of other products as well. For instance, there’s the Axis jacket kit in medium, Axis jacket-only in large, Axis jacket kit in large. See more heated jacket stock here. With that last link, if you see a price, it’s in stock, if you see “click for details,” it’s not.
If you’re able to find something in your desired size and style, remember to read about the E-Rebates freebies.
It’s a slim chance, but your local Milwaukee tool dealer *might* have some items on the sales floor.
