RadiansRadians, a leading manufacturer of high performance personal protective equipment, announced today that they will be the exclusive source for DEWALT’s full line of Heated Jackets.

“We are extremely excited about the opportunities that result from this smart technology expansion into the heated jacket market,” says Bill England, Radians’ President.  “Radians is a long standing partner of DEWALT’s in the personal protective gear market. Adding the DEWALT Heated Jackets to our line lets Radians use our established network of authorized distributors in the industrial, hardware, and sporting goods markets to bring these high quality jackets to a wide customer base.”

The DEWALT Heated Jacket line adds a total of 18 new styles to Radians’ cold weather arsenal.  Three styles are rated for High Visibility Protection and the other 15 Work Wear styles include heated sport jackets, hoodies, hunting jackets, and a heated vest. In addition to high-visibility green, the color palette includes neutral colors of black, khaki, and gray along with trendy camo patterns for the hunting jackets.

The DEWALT smart technology heating system is built on DEWALT’s 12V MAX* or 20V MAX* Cordless Battery Systems.  Each jacket has multiple heating zones with a choice of three temperature settings so the end user can control his or her comfort on the jobsite or in outdoor sporting and recreational activities.

According to Product Manager Dave Larimer, “Combining the DEWALT Heated Jacket offering with Radwear High Visibility Cold Weather apparel represents a major expansion of Radians’ Cold Weather apparel line.  The new line of work gear, with hi-visibility and non hi-visibility options, will provide people who work, hunt, or play with a variety of stylish options to keep warm when it’s cold outside.”

The full line of DEWALT heated jackets is available through Radians’ authorized distributors. For more information, visit www.Radians.com or call 1-877-RADIANS.
