Tourmaster synergy electric jacket
 
I just ordered the tourmaster synergy electric jacket liner. I am tired of freezing! I looked at the gerbing but went with the tourmaster after much deliberation. I got the jacket liner for $156.99 shipped to my door which includes the battery connector and thermostat. Gerbing sells the jacket liner for $199.00 plus you have to purchase the thermostat seperately for about $69. Harley-Davidson sells the exact same product with their name on it for $220.00 plus the thermostat. The tourmaster comes with a 3 year warranty vs. gerbings lifetime. I will do a product review after I have used it a few times in the cold and rain for those interested in the product.
I live in the southeast but am planning on riding to Alaska late in the summer so I think the electric heat will be welcome north of Montana in August.

The flaming emotican led me to believe that you were having problems with this. I ordered mine a few days ago and am anxious to get it. You had me worried for a moment there!

Tourmaster - Great Customer Service
 
Mine showed up with a broken controller (tear on red button). They sent me one pronto!!!

I guess that the flaming button is supposed to be heat

The flame guy was suppose to represent the warmth from the vest. Sorry for the confusion.

How's the jacket doing?

BTW These guys seem to have good prices, I've bought stuff there and they've been great but am waiting for some reviews before I pull the trigger on a set for Mrs Andy. Mr andy is a Gerbing man :-)

Bought a SYnergy vest back in November and took it on a 4000 mile ride (someday I need to do a ride report on that), used it every day and wouldn't do another cold weather trip without it. Layering to get by is a thing of the past for me, just too cool being able to "dial" up comfort.

Secret to getting the most out of it is to make sure it fits tight against your body, with just underarmor or long-sleeved T-shirt under it. Warning it always starts on high, it would have to be freezing outside to use it on that setting, I tried it once on a 38 degree night and was practically sweating. SO bump it down to at least medium at first and adjust up or down later.

SUGGESTIOIN: the controller clips (like a ball-point pen) to a loop on the elastic strap that goes on your left leg, and will come unclipped if you try to put the strap too high on your leg, I found it worked better just above the knee. I think I may drill a small hole in the end of the clip and safety wire it to the loop before I use it next time, VERY annoying when it pops out.:baldy

I bought mine from ironpony.com Free shipping and a Tee shirt plus they gave me another $5.00 dollars off. Very friendly sales staff and very informative on product lines. Jacket arrives next Monday. I will use it and give a detailed report. I have had a heated stich in the past so I will compare it to that overpriced heavyweight garmet. -No connection to ironpony I live halfway across the country.-

I'd be interested in hearing more about this liner & the vest also as I'm considering buying one. I've read the vest review on webbikeworld, they seemed to like it. It sure would beat having to do the multiple layers thing or just enduring the cold until I get to work an hour later :huh ....

Carbon Fiber = Even Warmth
 
The way that Tourmaster built these clothes, they have the carbon fiber heating wires woven throughout the vest. This means even heat - no more hot spots.

Looking forward to their BMW coonector. Meanwhile ordered one from Powerlet.
