Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
Love this jacket
I have been using the Synergy 2.0 since about 2006 or 2007 and I take it with me on the bike anytime there is a chance of it getting chilly out in the wind. I have also ridden down to zero degrees comfortably with it (only about a 1/2 hour ride that way, but when the roads are clear, you just have to ride). Unless it's getting down to some very low temps, I found that it works quite well with just a rain jacket over it, as well. I do not understand why anyone that rides would ever not have one of these. It is one of the best value buys I think I have ever made. If it ever stops working, I will buy another one the same day without a thought.

What is the outdoor temperature?
Wearing this jacket liner and feeling chilled is a thing of the past. It is like being wrapped in an electric blanket. toasty and comfortable. The controller has a wide range of 5 temperature settings and it helps to stay focused on the road. Everyone should experience heated gear.

Worth every cent!
Jacket fits snug as it should, looks great if you don't want it to stand out. I can throw my mesh or leather jacket over it with no problem. Heats up very quickly and evenly, the controller is a bit bulky but not a deal breaker. I wore the jacket with my leather vest in 45deg Chicago windy weather and was impressed. Set at Max it keept me warm, does good job cutting the wind on its own. Also took a ride with leather jacket over it in 40deg wether, had no issues. Did a great job keeping me warm, even had to turn in down while wearing the leather jacket. Both trips were Street and highway approx 1hr trip.

A good heated jacket.
Fits true to size for me, 6' 175lbs. It has vented underarms which at first feel weird when the rest of you is heated but makes sense.
Only gripe is I wish the glove plug in cables were a little longer. My heated gloves are not tourmaster and connect on opposite sides of theirs. This with the shorter cable makes plugging in a bit of an exercise. They do stay plugged in and the included controller works flawlessly.

Excellent Tourmaster product
I'm really glad I listened to Anthony's review of this jacket liner. Normally I buy things bigger than I need to. I'm 5'10", 170lbs, 38" chest. The small fits snug which is the way it is most efficient. I am really satisfied with the amount of heat it puts out. It fits under my 20 year old Tourmaster jacket without issue. Worth every penny.

I like it!
I took a ride through the Texas hill country today to have lunch at the Lost Maples Cafe in Utopia. Around 190 miles round trip. 60 degrees at 70 mph is pretty nippy on an unfaired bike. Gave me a chance to evaluate my new Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 heated jacket liner. My legs got cool but my upper body (back, chest, arms, neck) stayed warm. There are four heat settings. With the heat off the insulation of the liner was pretty good but eventually I started getting chilled. At the lowest heat setting I was comfortable. At the next to lowest I was toasty warm...that seemed to be the best balance for lack of leg warming. Settings 3 and 4 were too hot for long term use. May be appropriate on a colder day. Turning the switch on or changing the setting gave almost instantaneous heat. Overall, I am very impressed.

Worth every penny!
Went for a ride today, was about 50 degrees. Normally in that temperature I’m not very comfortable. Now it feels like I’m riding around in a Hot Tub! Can’t believe how much more I enjoy riding in cooler weather.
I normally have issues with cold hands, because the heated arms my hands kept warm as well (without heated gloves).

Wore this after install on test ride in the dark around 40F. Very comfortable on position 1. Next day I wore on the ride to work (in the dark again) 32-33F. On position 2 was very warm. Love the features of this over the other manufacturers styles.
