Stay warm in cold, harsh job site environments with the 18V LXT Cordless Heated Jacket

The DCJ205Z offers heat for up to 35 hours with an 18V LXT 6.0Ah battery (sold separately).

February 11, 2019, La Mirada, CA – Makita® U.S.A., Inc. launched a new 18V LXT® Cordless Heated Jacket (DCJ205Z). Available in sizes ranging from S to 3XL, the heated jacket offers heat for up to 35 hours with an 18V LXT 6.0Ah battery (sold separately).

Design Features and Range of Sizes

Heat is provided in 5 core zones - the left chest, right chest, back, and both pockets - for optimum heat distribution. Users can control the amount of heat by selecting the high, medium, or low setting.

The DCJ205Z has a black polyester shell for increased wind and water resistance and fleece interior for added warmth and comfort. Stretchy side panels provide extra comfort and increased mobility. The adjustable cuffs have a hook and loop closure to provide a better fit to help keep the cold weather outside. Four pockets, including a zippered chest pocket, sleeve pocket, left side pocket and right side pocket, provide convenient access to personal items.

The Heated Jackets are available in sizes S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL, and are washer and dryer safe.

The Power of Makita’s 18V LXT Batteries

The DCJ205Z has an on/off heat controller, with three heat settings to adjust to changing weather conditions. Heat is generated by Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion batteries, sold separately, including the 2.0Ah (BL1820), 5.0Ah (BL1850Ah), and 6.0Ah (BL1860) batteries. Duration of heat time varies with battery and heat setting. A battery pocket is on the rear-left side, located out of the way, but within reach for quick and easy access. Users can also keep portable electronic devices charged-up with the convenient on-board USB power port.

The new 18V LXT Heated Jacket is part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, which offers 200+ tools and is the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
