Very effective, super cozy!
This is something you'll want to fit quite snug, so don't order too big. Wiring into my Denali PowerHub was easy, and the instructions are straightforward. The supplied controller can support two items in case you've got another Tour Master heated item.
The vest fits well (I have a 46" chest and ordered a Large which was perfect). Heat comes in very quickly, and it's VERY warm! I rode for 2 hours in 43F weather and only needed setting 2 of 5.
Here's the best bit - with a nice warm core your body will happily send warm blood to your hands; no heated gloves or grips required. At the end of my ride my hands were still toasty and warm even without heated grips or gloves, the last time I rode in the same temperature they were like ice. Very happy with this!

CLIFF G:Hi Dustin, it uses a TourMaster specific controller. It comes with a dual controller, but a single controller is available as an accessory. The plugs are coax with the female end coming from the battery and one plug from the controller plugs into that, and a male end comes from the vest where the other plug from the controller plugs into.Dec 18, 2013
Thanks Cliff! One question - does the single controller draw less power since it's for only one piece of gear (I assume), or does the dual controller draw the same amount as the single if only one of the controllers are used?
I'd be using this on a Honda PCX150 scooter, so I don't know if the battery is as powerful or any different from one in a motorcycle, but it is a 12V, 6A battery.

CLIFF G:Hi Dustin, the controller is a rheostat (dial adjustment) that controls the amount of heat you want. If you crank up the heat you'll draw more current. If you have 2 or more pieces of apparel that you want to heat up, that means more current draw. By the way, I have found that I only need the vest on the lowest setting under a jacket with a quilted liner down to about 40 deg F, but I don't know how much current it draws at that setting. Your battery is probably fine, but I think the likelihood of draining the battery has more to do with whether the charging system of your scooter can keep up. I'm guessing that it would be fine, but not 100% sure.Dec 18, 2013
Really appreciate the advice Cliff! I'm not technically inclined enough to know what the charging system is like, but I can definitely hook up the cables and run them to the gear. Thought I might also install a voltmeter so I can keep tabs on the battery while riding. I just got a TourMaster jacket for colder weather, but have no plans on riding in sub 45-50º weather... just figured a vest would be nice to have underneath and plugged in if needed. Been under 30º the last few days in NJ and I'm cold in my car!

Guy S:Hey Dustin- The vest comes with an adaptor that can connect directly to your battery. I have a BMW with CANBUS. I had to buy an adaptor so that I could plug right into the bike. Get the vest...it works really well. wiring it up is super easy as well. Good luck-Dec 23, 2013
A shopper asked:Is there a battery I can use with the first gear vest? I would like to wear it during the winter when i am not tethered to the bike. I know gerbling has a battery, can i use that one?Jan 21, 2014
Tourmaster does not offer a battery (it's pretty easy to check by looking at their website). The vest is rated at 160W, which means that even if you carried around a battery the size of the one that is inside the bike it would only last for a little over an hour on full power - and that's a heavy battery!Jan 21, 2014
Guy S:I am unaware of a portable battery that can connected to this vest. I believe there are ski/snowmobile vests that use onboard batteries. But, I haven't seen an attachment to convert this vest.Jan 21, 2014
Rob H:I have the vest with no collar, this has 3 heating panels.
One each side of the front , either side of the zipper & one on the back of the vest.
The heating elements are steel fibre, they are quite flexible & do not restrict in anyway.
You get the majority of the heat on the front
You can feel heat between your shoulders but not as much as the front.
I am in Australia & where I live temps get down to 4 deg Celsius, I usually have it on the second hest setting & I am toasty warm ( has 5 heat settings).
Great bit of kit I can highly recommend.Aug 11, 2013
DAVID U:Not sure of the number of heat elements, but it's a great vest keeps me nice in the cold, and I shopped around and asked questions and REVZILLA is the best our there I wouldn't go any where else to shop, my back tire, glove liners,& heated vest all top notch from Revzilla!Aug 11, 2013
RevZilla:The Synergy 2.0 gloves will work with the Synergy 2.0 vest or jacket liners. To connect the vest to the gloves, you will need a V-Split electrical adaptor, which is included with the synergy gloves. The set up would then go as follows (from the Tour Master Instruction manual):
Connect the red connector (male) on the controller to the red connector (female) on the power lead harness. Using the supplied V-Split adaptor, route the black (male) connection wire up the left side of the vest/jacket and the gray connection wire through the right side Connect the right hand glove's gray connector (female) to the V-Split connector cable's gray connector (male) Connect the left hand glove's black connector (female) to the V-Split connector cable's black connector (male) Connect the V-Split adaptor's black connector (male) to the dual controller's gray connector (female) Prior to use, double check that the wiring and temperature controller do not hinder your ability to safely control the vehicle.Nov 8, 2012
