Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
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.

Nice and warm!
I've been using this brand of jacket liner for the past 6 years and purchased this one for my son. The new controllers are much better and less prone to breakdown. these are very nice, water resistant, and work great as a jacket down to about 47F without a coat over them. From about 47F down to about 37F, I use just a wind breaker (my rain gear top) over the liner and am very comfortable. Below 37F, I put my heavy leather jacket on and am very good. These plug nicely into the pant liner and heated gloves and control all three off just once controller.
My only complaint about this liner is the design. If you are like me and are an old fatty with a "pendulous abdomen", the front of the liner doesn't come down far enough. When wearing mine, there's a slight gap horizontally in the front under the lower edge. The wind can some times blow in under it.
The jacket elements are nicely placed in the back so that if you have a sore back, it feels like you are wearing a heating pad.

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.
