Who is Dewalt?

Dewalt’s origins date back to the 1920s and founder Raymond DeWalt, who pioneered the mass production of woodworking machines. Originally located in Leola, Pennsylvania, Dewalt was known for its “Wonder-Worker,” an electric universal woodworking machine that could be configured in 9 different ways.

Dewalt found their modern form when they launched their cordless system and MAX battery range, which evolved over the 2000s into one of the most respected tool lines for the job site and the backyard. Using the same space-saving and rechargeable 20-volt MAX batteries, Dewalt’s heated jacket range is designed for exactly those people—whether you’re raking leaves, renovating a home, or working construction.

Our verdict

Dewalt heated jackets occupy a specific niche for those people who are already working with the Dewalt MAX system batteries and tools. If that’s you, then there’s a lot to like about Dewalt’s varied jacket range. With polyester and duck cotton options, as well as women-specific fits and even a heated hoodie, there’s enough diversity in their product line to satisfy every taste.

When it comes to the technical aspects, Dewalt jackets are also competitive. Most go above and beyond the standard three heating zones to provide arm and/or collar warmth. That said, Dewalt jackets are unquestionably heavy, with two of their line coming in at a hefty 5 pounds.
