Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
I stuck with what works
I had the old style jacket, many years old. It had taken my worst abuse and still works. I started looking at new ones because the old style had a single controller. I stuck with the tourmaster. It's cheaper, comes with a dual controller and if it's anything like my last one it will last! The review video says the collar isn't heated, both this one and the old one have heated collars.

Definately Makes a Difference
I ride a 2008 Superglide without any windshield. Great in the Summer, sometimes challenging in the cooler months. Never used heated clothes before, but bought this heated jacket liner before a planned ride up to Northern PA on a 40 degree day. It made a big difference. Never had to set it to the maximum. I normally wear Extra Large Tall. Bought this in Extra Large. Other than the sleeves being a little short (as expected), it was a good fit. It needs to be snug to be effective, and it has elastic side panels to make it a flexible fit. So, I suggest that you buy your normal size. Well constructed, but is too soon to make any statement on durability. Using the temperature controller on the leg band was less than ideal. Convenient to get to there, but it kept sliding down my leg and I had to keep fussing with it. Distracting. Hanging it on the belt kind of worked, but it has come loose from there while riding and it is harder to adjust the settings when there - so that was also less than ideal. Some with bikes that have a lot of tupperware have mounted the controller to a convenient spot on a reachable plastic panel. That was a good idea, but I don't have that option with the Superglide. So I'm still trying to come up some better idea for the controller So, bottom line is : definitely makes for more comfortable riding in colder weather, but you have have to fuss with the wires and the controller.

Best value in heated gear
Has worked great, very pleased with purchase.
Has kept me warm below 20 degrees going 70mph!
Dual controller included at no additional cost a real bonus.
Only thing I might add is a inline on/off rocker switch.

Best Bang for the Buck
Great fit, be sure to use sizing chart, and gets you warm in a hurry. I tried on other brands but this one fits great, gives you extra room because of the elastic down the sides and shoulders. Love that the dual controller is included so you can buy the gloves and it's like getting them half off. I rode comfortably which means safely because I wasn't distracted by the cold. Get it and enjoy a longer riding season.

I realize that Birmingham, AL at 49 Fahrenheit is not exactly Point Barrow, Alaska, but this jacket is HOT when you need it to be. I rode to work, hitting 70+ mph and I was sweating. I highly recommend this jacket. It warms up quickly and the distribution of the heating elements was perfect.

The jacket liner is as expected and works great. The controller's indents for each setting is hands above the ones that are just a dial. Worth the purchase price.

Great jacket drove around in temperatures between 45 to 55 deg had the temperature controller set between 1 and 2 worked great.
I recommended buying this jacket if you like riding on those great cool fall days but your toasty hot on the inside.
Great value for the bucks
