Pissed 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

Has anyone on here tried the tourmaster pant liners? We were all set to buy our heated gear from tourmaster when we noticed that the pant liners are chaps-style. Then, we got to thinking about it and weren't sure that was such a BAD idea...
Anyone?
Thanks...

I guess you could look at it as "no news is good news".

The "chaps" idea seems good to me. They'll cover the really cold areas, pack smaller (?) and be easier to put on (?) .

I talked to a local seller and he said none have been returned.

TOURMASTER SYNERGY gloves and jacket liner my ktm 950 450 watts?

just ordered the TOURMASTER SYNERGY gloves and jacket liner. I ride a KTM 950 SM I think it puts out 450 watts, do you think it puts out enough juice to keep me warm and not kill my battery or dim my lights?

Thanks!

I just received my jacket liner and hard-wired it up to my WR250R. It works great. Thanks everyone for the tips about what to wear under the jacket liner. It was warm and toasty.

Now for some heated grips.......

Work with Aerostich?

Has anyone tried to use one of these jackets with a Aerostich Roadcrafter? Seems the attached control box would be a real problem.

This is the thing bothering me as well. I emailed Tourmaster about it and got a message telling me to run the power wire up my leg and cut a hole for the controller or else keep it inside the suit and don't adjust it.

There must be a better way
