Ridgid Heated Jacket 

This is the first time I have seen or tried out a heated jacket and I must say I was super excited to take it for a spin. This idea is absolutely genius. The operation of this jacket is really simple.
I have detailed all of the ins and outs of the RIDGID heated jacket below, but I'd figured it would be good for you guys to see it in action. Check out the video above and then read on to get my detailed review
The jacket that I am wearing is the Men’s Large version and fit me perfectly. If you are looking for a more looser fit, I would suggest a size up from what you would normally wear, but this jacket fit me perfectly!
RIDGID Heated Jacket Power Source
There is a power source that connects to a RIDGID battery that's used to apply power to the jacket. It features a belt clip on the back that allows you to hang the power source on the back of your pants.

The jacket power cable lives in the back right pocket. This cable plugs into the DC outlet on the side of the power source. Once it's plugged in, you're ready to get heated.

In order to turn the heat on, you have to press and hold the power button located on the top left of your RIDGID heated jacket. Easy as 1,2,3.

I really like the idea of having a heated jacket on during winter time. I was hoping for a little more heat in the jacket, but it was still nice to have some kind of warmth rather than nothing.

I did notice that you feel the heat a lot more when the jacket is zipped up, most likely because the heating zones are in the upper frontal parts of the jacket. So make sure you zip up to get the best use out of the heated jacket.

There are three heat settings, but I imagine that my setting would always be set to high, based interest he amount of heat that’s provided.

Ridgid 18V Heated Jacket w/ removable hoodOne feature I really liked, was being able to plug up a USB device to the power source. In my opinion, this elevates the jacket. Even if you aren't wearing the jacket, you can used this power source around the shop to plug up your phone or other electronics. KUDOS RIDGID.

The jacket also features a cell phone pocket and cell phone cord slots that allows you the option to plug your phone up in various places in the jacket.

The jacket also features a hood that is removable. I like that fact that we have the option to either have a hood or not because I can see how it could get in the way, especially with hair like mine, but also nice to have it when raining.

BTP Firm Grip Pro-Fit Flex Impact Glove with Touchscreen Compatibility

With the heated jacket, it's only right to have a good pair of gloves to keep those hands warm. These firm grip gloves have a tough textile outer layer that's very flexible for regular movement with impact protection.

The part I really like is the touchscreen compatibility. You do have to press extra hard to operate a screen but if I'm wearing gloves in the shop they have to be touchscreen compatible.
