Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Jacket Liner
Ahh . . . Warmth! Suddenly its always 90 degrees out.
Seriously, my wife and I have logged almost 100,000 miles since 7/10/2015. We've survived every type of weather, and many miles of severe cold. When I saw the price of these, I told her I was buying her one. Instead, she asked that I buy a one, and then test it to make sure it worked as advertised. If I really liked it, we could always order hers latter. One ride and I came home and told her that we were buying her own, today.
At 32 degrees the other night, all we did was turn up the heat. The jacket was only 3 or 4 out of 5, and yet it was toasty warm. Not a hint of cold air on arms or back. Instead of being so cold that you were afraid to move, every movement now brings you body into "new" contact points and the warmth actually spreads out.

This jacket liner comes with a dual controller and all the connecting wires needed.
This liner heats up very fast...and is very warm. I use it under my Tour Master Transition 3 jacket. I can wear the liner with the detachable jacket liner at the same time. The liner fits snug, but not too snug. It's very comfortable.
I haven't yet worn the jacket liner by itself....it's still winter! Don't expect to do that 'cause I also got the Synergy 2 vest.
I bought the liner on sale, so I feel good about spending less than $200.

Heats up fast comes with everything you need
This jacket gets really hot quick and comes with all the connectors, along with a dual controller if you want to add on gloves later. at 6'5 180lbs the medium fits good, I wish I had a little more sleeve length and overall torso length for the jacket but it shouldn't be an issue with my leather jacket over it. I don't know why I waited so long to get this. Should have bought one years ago.

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.
