Stay warm in cold weather hunting or other outdoor activities with the new DEWALT® Heated Fleece Vest

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 11.55.58 AM.png

MEMPHIS, TN–November 27, 2018–Staying warm in the tree stand, in the duck blind, or just walking in the woods can be challenging and unpredictable for hunters, but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially with the introduction of the new DEWALT® DCHV085 Heated Fleece Vest.

The new DEWALT DCHV085 fleece vest, which is available now, is exclusive to the Radians Sporting Goods channel and will be offered to retailers with storefronts only. The complete kit (D1) includes:

  • The DCHV085 Heated Vest

  • DCB203 DEWALT 20V MAX* Lithium-Ion Battery (2.0 Ah)

  • Charger

  • DCB092 USB Power Adapter

Powered by the DEWALT 20V MAX XR 2.0 Ah battery*, the new vest allows hunters to control their comfort in the cold without a lot of bulk that restricts mobility and possibly their aim. The heated fleece vest also has a Realtree Xtra® camo design to help the hunter blend in seamlessly with the woods.

Since sound or rustling noises can alert prey, the DCHV085 was designed with a noise free polyester fleece outer shell and soft polyester black fleece inner shell. Other features include:

  • Durable, insulated, and wind resistant material

  • Heavy duty nylon zipper with internal wind guard

  • 2 large flannel-lined slash pockets with zipper closure

  • 2 large flannel-lined slash pockets with snap closure

  • 1 accessory pocket with zipper closure

  • 1 accessory pocket with hook and loop closure

  • Multiple locations for battery or electronic devices

  • USB charging port

Like all DEWALT Heated Gear, the new heated fleece vest is engineered with a carbon fiber system that delivers hours of core body warmth and continuous heat**. The vest features a USB charging port to power mobile devices and a temperature control button that allows the hunter to control the level of heat (pre-heat, low, medium, and high).

The new DCHV085 not only combats cold stress for hunters, but the heated vest is suitable for other activities, including football games, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, or any cold outdoor activity where you need to stay warm without a lot of bulk impeding your mobility. It also makes a nice Christmas or holiday gift and can be purchased at fine sporting goods storefronts.  Suggested MSRP is $249.99.

For more information, visit or call toll free 1-877-723-4267.  All Radians products are sold through authorized distributors.

*With respect to 20V MAX*, maximum initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18. (Actual run time varies depending on battery type and heat setting)

**Battery pocket accepts 20V MAX* XR lithium-ion batteries which improves run time by up to 25%. (At maximum initial battery voltage, as compared to 1.5 Ah DCB201). Up to 5.5 Hours of runtime on low setting using the 20V MAX* compact 1.5 Ah battery

Stockton Offers Great Winter Crappie Fishing

This story originally appeared in the Joplin Globe.

By Brent Frazee

Most crappie fishermen think of warm, sunny spring days when they envision the best crappie fishing of the year.

Not Kris Nelson, a guide at Stockton Lake. He pictures the bone-chilling, dreary days of winter.

“We have days when we have to bust ice to get out there, but that’s when I want to be fishing,” said Nelson, who runs Tandem Fly Outfitters Guide Service and owns Stone Creek Lodge. “The weather can be pretty nasty, but the fishing is great. Once the crappies get balled up on the main lake, you can sit over them and catch ’em one after the other. And they’re nice-sized fish.”

Indeed, Nelson enjoys some of his best fishing at a time of the year when most anglers are inside watching fishing shows on TV.
