Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
I bought this jacket instead of the FirstGear jacket largely because of cost. The included troller made it an incredible deal comparatively. On a 28 degree day I kept it on level two and was warm when I arrived. With the jacket I also use Firstgear glove liners, pant liners, and Tourmaster insoles.
The liner fits well under my regular jacket and keeps out the wind with the liner out, I wore it with the liner and it was a bit too bulky.
As for size - I'm 5'9" and 170 lbs, I wear a size 44 jacket. I bought the liner in size small and it is perfect.

Jacket works well, but could be a little longer to cover lower back. Ok when riding but when off the bike it feels a little short.

Excellent product, does what they say it will do.
Jacket works very well. I normally wear an XL so I bought the XL and it fits great. The controller and battery hook up comes with the jacket so you don't need to make another purchase. The heat comes on quickly and I normally use the 1st or 2nd setting.

Performs as advertised
I commute to work almost every day to D.C. It keeps me warm even when the temperature is in the teens. Great product and wonderful service.

Very good product - excellent service from Revzilla
The jacket keeps you toasty warm in 30 degrees weather, and at 65 mph. You'll say "how did I get along without it before".

I bought this jacket liner because of the good reviews and the fact that it includes a dual controller for less money than the controller-less leading competitor, and it hasn't disappointed. Installation was easy, and it transformed my low to mid 40 degree 40 minute commute from very unpleasant to unbelievably comfortable. With regulation of the power to the liner based on the temperature of the liner, it really is set-it-and-forget-it. Some very minor points - the rig is really designed for the controller to be strapped to your leg with the power port exiting at the seat. The leads on the controller aren't long enough for mounting the controller or the power point further up on the bike, e.g. near the bars, but this is probably possible with an extension cable. With a full-face helmet it's not easy to see the controller on the leg, and with thick gloves it's not easy to feel what's going on when trying to adjust the knobs. Still, this is pretty much irrelevant because there should be no need to adjust it on the fly because it regulates itself.

A quality reasonable cost jacket that will definitely keep you warm
it comes with a cord quite long enough to hook it up to your battery. BUT i have a battery tender and if you order that plug in extension to the battery tender outlet (it's only a few feet long) it works just fine... the jacket is great.. warms up way quick, way high. I've never needed to go one click from off. 40 degree weather is just fine (i don't like going much under that .. mostly because i don't like black ice cropping up).... make sure it fits snug.. that's when it works the best. i wear XL tall shirts and the X Large fits me well from the sleeves to the waste. with a t shirt, a shirt, the jacket then my motorcycle jacket i'm good to go.
Call them and describe what your outlet is.. that's what i did and they suggested the minimal cost battery tender interface.

I will not be able to really test it out before spring since MCs are not allowed on the roads in my area during winter months but my first look at it is very positive. Getting the jacket liner and the controller at that price is hard to beat.
I've marked air flow as poor which is a good thing for a heated liner.
I have other Tourmaster products and find their quality/price
ratio hard to beat.
