I have been layering like a Michelin man for several years and decided to finally spring for a heated liner . Wow! What a difference. I no longer need all that bulky stuff that constricts my motion. The expanding panels along the sides are very comfortable for me and move as I move. I am going to look at a full liner now!

I returned to riding in 2005, and although I knew the value of wearing heated garments, I kept being a cheapskate and just decided to be tough. This past Christmas, my wife bought me the Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 Electric Vest Liner w/Collar, and I realized what a fool I had been! This product really delivers! I quickly and easily wired it to the battery, got dressed, started the bike and plugged it in - INSTANT WARMTH! I wear a light shirt underneath and a sweater over the vest, and it keeps me comfortably warm. It has really enhanced my winter driving, and enable me to embark on longer rides. The only problem I have had with the product is that the back clip on the controller broke; however, MotoSport is shipping a me a replacement. What a customer-focused organization! Thank you! - Chris S.
Hooked up the Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 vest and donned it for my morning commute. On the highest setting, I was baking like a potato! Using the 3rd setting, I completed my 30-minute ride in the 20s with warm hands, a warm core and somewhat chilled feet and lower legs. The directions for making the connections were a little ambiguous, and it took me a moment to realize that as I was only connecting one wired article, the additional connections did not apply. If I decide to go for longer rides, I may look at ordering the pants or the insoles. The vest alone provided me with the most comfortable winter ride that I have had since 2005.
The vest I received was a perfect fit. It was form fitting and felt very good especially with the heated collar. The installation and care instructions were very easy to follow. I am now prepared to ride until the snow comes :-)
After trying to buy a Gerbings vest for months (no kidding), they seem to have serious supply issues, I went for plan B. Initially I wasn't sure what plan B was to be but the Tourmaster won me over with it's feature set over others I looked at.
This is my first electric garment so I'm no expert on these but I will say it's hard to imagine another vest working better. It gets warm quick, so you get warm quick. The high collar really adds much warmth as well.
The controller for these garments are now smart (like the Gerbings) so it only draws as much current as is required for the setting you choose, nice. I ordered an extra large and with my 46" chest is a good fit.
