Just a heads up. A good sale on heated Gloves, Vests and jackets. Looks like some really good prices.

Tour Master Heated Gear sale at MotorcycleGear.com

I don't see anything about a sale other than the closeout on gloves (115 vs 189)

I'd like to find a decent heated vest, although I'd prefer plug in to battery

Don't waste your time with a vest. Get a jacket. You'll be glad you did. I have a Warm and Safe and really like it.

Just an update. Does anybody know the difference between the 2.0 (12v) and the 7.4volt lines with Tour Master?

It's somewhat confusing.

I'm guessing 12v is powered off the bike and 7.4v is battery powered

Vests are worn tightly against the body, where the far-infrared heating pads can be effective. Jackets are looser and fail at that main , also often without having heating elements in the arms.

I completely disagree. I've had a Tourmaster Synergy and now have a Warm and Safe Gen IV. Both fit snug and had heating elements in the arms. The Tourmaster was an older wire technology but worked well until an element failed. The W&S has a total off 7 carbon heating panels.

I wouldn't size a vest any tighter than a jacket, so I'd say that's a non-issue. Also, I don't know of a jacket that doesn't have heating in the sleeves. And most, if not all, have heating in the collar as well. Nice!

I know you're commuting on a Zero, but do they not offer a place to connect typical 12V accessories? The only reason I ask is because I commuted to SF for a few years with just a Stitch, a Warm and Safe jacket and Tourmaster carbon fiber heated gloves. Like others have said, heated grips will never keep you warm like a heated glove will. They weren't bulky either and the truly best part is that the jacket had connectors in the sleeves to plug the gloves right in and my temperature controller has two separate controls so I can keep the jacket and the gloves right where I want them in terms of comfortability. All told, I was less than $500 for everything and quite frankly, there's nothing better than being comfortable when it's cold and you're riding.

Coldest I've ridden in with that gear is 21 degrees without windchill and I was fine.
