Bosch PSJ120 Heated Jacket

Published on Jan 9, 2015

I have been wearing this Bosch heated jacket for the last couple weeks & have been very pleasantly surprised. Like everywhere else in the US, it is extremely cold here (19 degree high yesterday w/winds) & it has been keeping me very warm.

The jacket has 3 heat settings (red = high, green = medium, blue = low) & will heat up extremely fast….literally in a matter of seconds. The included adapter that powers the jacket, also has a USB port to recharge your phone/tablet (It can power the jacket & charge your device at the same time). The battery adapter/USB charger also has a metal belt clip, so you can use it year-round to charge your phones/tablets & not waste your money on one of those USB Lithium Cell “Powerpacks” at the big box stores.

I got a large-size jacket (I am 6’2″ & 175lbs), and it fits me fine. If you are borderline with sizing, I would absolutely order the next size up from what you normally do.

In general, I really like it. To me it looks like a motorcycle jacket (styling) & does not have a rough inside that will cause your sleeves you bunch up on your arms. The interior is very smooth & with the battery pocket in the front, you cannot feel it poking you while you ride down the rode.

Plus sides:

  • Comfortable
  • Looks good
  • Affordable (under $200 with jacket, charger, 12v battery, and adapter)
  • Heat comes on EXTREMELY fast
  • Lots of pockets
  • Doesnt bunch up your sleeves
  • Battery placement (front inside pocket OR optional placement on your belt)
  • Internal routing of USB wire for phone charging

Down sides :

  • Hand wash/Drip dry only! Not machine washable or dry-able.
  • No Hood.
  • No option for a cigarette outlet adapter.

If you are in the market for a heated jacket….take a look at the Bosch!  It will give you a very professional look, and will keep you extremely warm for many hours on just one battery charge.
