Ergodyne heated jacketErgodyne announced today the expansion of their CORE Performance Work Wear® Outer Layer Series to include the 6490 Heated Jacket with Removable Sleeves. With 3 heat settings and 2 heat zones on the chest and back, this versatile battery powered jacket not only comes with removable sleeves but also offers an adapter extension wire to connect to alternative power sources including, but not limited to tool batteries.

"Adding a heated jacket to our growing cold stress collection was a no brainer," said Adria Hardy, product manager. "The 6490 heated jacket comes standard with a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, battery wall charger, and adapter extension wire – everything you need to stay protected in the coldest of temps."

With 3 heat settings {low, medium, and high} and the ability to turn the jacket into a vest, the 6490 heated jacket is designed to be used in any temperature – chilly or downright subzero. The two heating zones located on the chest and back deliver heat to the body's core regions and is activated through an easy touch heat control button on the outside of the jacket. Boasting three pockets and a convenient battery holder pocket, the 6490 heated jacket is unique to the market with its extension wire allowing a worker to heat the jacket from an alternative power source.

"For workers braving the frigid elements on a daily basis, sometimes layering just won't cut it," said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. "We've created a jacket that not only heats the body, it is comfortable, convenient, and easy to use – exactly how a jacket should be."

Ideal for anyone working in cold environments, the new CORE Performance Work Wear® 6490 Heated Jacket with Removable Sleeves is available January 1, 2015 at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information or to find out where to buy, visit or call 800.225.8238 // 651.642.9889.
