Contractors don't stay home when the mercury drops; they adapt to the conditions. That's why many determined pros are outfitting themselves with a new breed of winter workwear. Take, for instance, the Milkwaukee Heated Jacket. It doesn't just block out wind and rain. Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, the jacket actively warms the body for up to six hours. It even has a USB port, so you can charge your phone on the go! Available at
The Home Depot; $199.
