Well, my wife bought me a set of Tourmaster Synergy heated clothing for Christmas. Since then, its been too warm to try them out, until the last couple of days!

I went out yesterday for about an hour, but the temp was only about 50F. This evening, it was 32F. I donned my clothing over a long sleeve t-shirt and blue jeans. Over top, my standard riding jacket and vented overpants. (Full face helmet and good wool socks, also)

I'm here to tell you, those things work great!!! I was very comfortable. The only complaint I had was that the jacket liner gets so warm, I believe it would be better to have a thicker shirt on underneath for insulation. They are very comfortable to wear and not too bulky. No longer is it too cold to ride...around here anyway. Y'all fellers up there in the great white north in the -40F places I believe are SOL until spring no matter what you wear!

(My heated grips work great too!)

Big +1 on the Synergy gear. The only complaint I have heard is that the gloves have no heat in the thumbs. I don't have the gloves, but I like that the Synergy heat controllers are included with all the wireing needed at no extra charge. And each item.... jacket liner, legs, gloves have their own heat controller. Machine washable also!!!
My biggest complaint is that they are made in China for Tourmaster. But then alas......you will find that about all the great Harley riding gear and leathers are also made in China!!!

Glad to hear that you are happy with yours, Sean!

I had read a thread on another forum of quite a few people having problems with the digital heat controllers, giving up the ghost after a short time(almost immediately to just a few hours use) Seems that Tourmaster had a problem withtheir 1st batch of them, not being able to handle the amperage load. Nearly all the riders were very pleased with the abundance of heat, the liners produced.

To Tourmaster's credit , they immediately shipped a newer version of the heat controller(upgraded from 12A to 25A)to those with problems with failed controllers. The newer controllers look exactly like the older version, but aredenoted with a 'N' on the decal that is on the back of the controller. By all accounts that I've read, there are reportedly very few failures with the newer type controllers.

I'll be looking to purchase one of the jacket liners in early spring, to cut down on the bulkiness of all the layers(and bike storage space) needed for riding in cool-cold conditions. While riding the high elevations through the mountains can be verynice, even warmduring a sunny day in summer, early morning and night time temperature drops can make for cool riding, catching the 'unprepared' rider, riding with just a mesh jacket on.

Thanks for the report, SB
