Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
Great Jacket Liner
So it has taken me a while to right this review because here in Arizona it has not gotten cold until this week. I have gone on a couple of short rides to dial in the jacket liner, but for the past couple of months it has not been cold enough to really try the jacket liner out until this week. This morning when I went to work it was 32 degrees out and thought it might be time to put this jacket liner on and plug it in. Once I got the dual controller figured out (anciently had the dual controls switched in my mind) the jacket liner dialed in great and I had nice warm upper body.
I am between a X-Large and XX-Large for my shirts and jackets. On the size chart once again I fell right in the middle of the X-Large and XX-Large. I opted for the XX-Large (which I know goes against convention for winter gear) but for me it worked out just right. The fit is great. Of course being a jacket liner under my Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 Jacket feels like I am the Michelin man, but it still fits nice and snug like winter gear is suppose to. I have also purchased the Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Leather Gloves and these work great with the jacket liner.
One bonus is you get the battery hookup and dual controller to use right out of the box.
I would highly recommend the jacket liner and the whole Tour Master 2.0 line.

Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 Jacket
Nice cut and fit, durable plugs and connections. Oh-so-toasty warm. Works very well Gerbings T-5 gloves. It's a perfect layer beneath the wind-cutting Klim Misano jacket.

The included heat controller makes this a great deal!
Had a Harley branded (Gerbings) heated jacket liner for a few years and needed a replacement. When comparing the available heated jacket liners on Revzilla, the standout for me was the included dual heat controller ($80 - $100 value). The liner itself is well made and provides even heat distribution. This is a great deal.

Warm at last.
The summary says it all. If you're riding through the winter, just give up on layering up more and more as the temp drops and get one of these.
When set right, you don't even know that the liner is heated, you are simply warm. Crank it up and it can get scorching hot. Response to changes in the controller setting are instant. Quality is good, can't fault it really.

Love this Jacket
I love the tour-master synergy 2 line of products. I recently purchased the chaps and use with the jacket liner. These have extended my riding year. When I get the setting right, I don’t even know that I am wearing them.

First-Class Riding Season Extender
A few years ago I had an earlier version of this jacket liner. It was excellent. Then I moved to a warm year-round climate area with no need to use a jacket liner. I bought the Synergy 2.0 for a friend who does ride in a cold winter climate, and he has been mightily impressed by it. Installation is simple and quick, and the jacket liner functions flawlessly. The fact the jacket liner comes equipped with connectors for heated pants and gloves is a big plus - and a built-in reason to be tempted to buy those items as well....
1. "Air Flow" is rated "5" , as there should be NO airflow with this product, and that is how it performs.
2. The fact there are product reviews available at the Revzilla website and product videos by Anthony effectively address a great many shopper questions/concerns.
3. I purchased the wrong size for my friend: the Revzilla return/exchange procedure was effortless and very responsive.

Used for the first time in very old windy conditions and would have thought it was 70 outside. Will not have to limit my riding because of temperature anymore
