DeWalt Heated Jacket

DeWalt Heated Jacket DCHJ060ABD1 Review

When there’s work to do, but it’s cold outside, a good heated jacket can be your best friend. Body heat helps, sure, but having a jacket that fires up to 131° within seconds helps a lot more. As we learned through our Best Heated Jacket Shootout, you’ve got a few options. When you’ve absolutely got to […]

Milwaukee Axis Heated Jacket Review

The work doesn’t stop when it gets frigid outside, so it’s nice that we’ve finally reached a point in human history where we can throw on one of any number of heated jacket options. Instead of a regular jacket keeping all of your self-generated body warmth contained, the heated jacket does the heavy lifting from […]

Makita Cooling Jacket

Makita Cooling Jacket Review

I’ll be honest, I was so super-psyched when I finally got my hands on the new Makita Cooling Jacket. Despite the fact that I’m originally from Florida and ought to be used to sweltering and humid conditions, I feel like I run hot most of the time. I’m not entirely sure if it’s that I’m […]

Grundens Storm Rider Jacket and Bib Pants Rain Gear

Grundens Storm Rider Jacket and Bib Pants Rain Gear

Grundens is a brand most closely associated with the fishing industry. I’m not talking about those professional bass fishermen, I’m talking Deadliest Catch type commercial guys that need rain gear on a whole other level. While that’s what they’re most well-known for around most circles, the fact of the matter is they make gear that […]

Dickies Flex Sanded Duck Mobility Jacket

Dickies Flex Sanded Duck Mobility Jacket

Now, I know I won’t get much sympathy from our friends in the North, but Florida winters can actually get cold. Oh, did it get down to 55°, Ben? Well, yes – our acclimatizations are relative after all! I haven’t dug out from any nor’easters lately, but this winter has brought several stretches of chilly weather […]

Walls Workwear Jack-Shirt with Kevlar

Walls Workwear Jack-Shirt with Kevlar

For all of the oppressive summer (and sometimes fall) heat in Central Florida, the Pros here rarely have to worry about bundling up to get the job done. But there are times when we need workwear appropriate for chilly temperatures. You know, for the few days that dip below 60 degrees! Late winter and early […]
