Thermalution Surf Series (15M)
Thermalution® is by far the best heated wetsuit product available on the market! It has the smallest battery size of all heated wetsuit products, and with a weight of only 1.5lbs, it is worn virtually unoticed beneath your wetsuit or drysuit. Of all heated wetsuit products currently available, Thermalution® has the capacity to heat up in the shortest amount of time (under a minute), while been able to last for the longest duration (maximum 150 minutes per use). With three levels of adjustable heat,you can adjust the temperature of the thermal layer within your wetsuit, up to 75ft beneath the surface, giving you absolute control of the amount of warmth in your suit.
Thermalution® uses Far Infrared Ray technology, which doesn't just heat your skin like many other products. Thermalution® actually heats deep within your core, giving you improved blood circulation, enhanced cell and tissue regeneration, pain relief, and comfort to the entire body. You will be amazed at how much more comfortable you will feel after turning on the suit to even only the lowest of three settings. Once you have a session in a Thermalution, you won't ever want to venture out on a winter day without one!
Similar to any base layer clothing (like Under Armor®) Thermalution Undersuits can be worn beneath any wetsuit, dry suit, or jacket. It's most effective to wear directly on your skin.
Wearing beneath a wetsuit
Thermal protection of a wetsuit is limited to insulate your body and minimize heat loss. The thicker the neoprene, the warmer you'll feel, but you may get extremely exhausted by putting a thick wetsuit on. With our Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit, you can say good-bye to a thick wetsuit and enjoy a fun cold water sport with a thinner wetsuit, because Thermlation generates heat instead of only been able to reduce heat loss. By wearing Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit beneath your wetsuit it distributes the heat through whole body by the water underneath your wetsuit.
Battery and Controller
Thermalution Heated Undersuits use two 7.4 volt Lithium Polymer batteries. Battery Size: 4x2x0.5 Inches.
These are the same type of batteries found in your mobile phone or mp3 player. There is no danger of radiation, electric shock or explosion from these batteries. Batteries are compact and lightweight and are positioned outside of the undersuit at the sides of the chest, under the arms. It offers maximum freedom of movement and it's easy to change batteries.
Thermalution micro controllers are easy to use. To turn on the undersuit push and hold button for 2 sec. On start up it displays a green light and starts temperature on low. Push once more to change to medium temperature with an orange light indication and once more to change to high with a red light indication. To turn the undersuit off simply push and hold button for 2 sec.

So far so good
Posted by JSlim on 15th Jul 2014
I have had my Thermalution for about 2 weeks now. So far battery life is good, it certainly lasts the 1-2 hours that I normally surf. I've been trying to keep the battery connectors clear (washing salt water off after every surf). My hands and feet have felt cold but the rest of me hasn't suffered. I love being able to turn up the heat if it is a cold and windy morning.
Heats up super fast

This vest heats up super fast, and retains heat for the advertised time. Really good quality product. You get what you pay for.
Stay Toasty and Rock through the Hardest Winter!

I have used my Thermalution Rash Vest bodysurfing in NZ 6 times now. We are moving in to winter here and people are paddling out with gloves and hoods. I am using an E Bomb Ripcurl 3/4 Steamer with 2ml fin socks and a Gath helmet with Go Pro camera mount and my Slyde Handboard so I am determined to be warm this winter. The first time I used my vest a couple of weeks ago I had to turn it off because I was too hot with it on the lowest setting. I bodysurfed for 4 hours two days ago and had it on low for the second hour and medium for the last two hours. It was still on after I came out of the water so that was on for three hours! The controller is a little tricky with fingers which are numb, but I managed ok. The test will be to keep me in the water through July and August coming up - our coldest months and I am anticipating using the hot setting, but so far ... I am absolutely stoked by this Thermalution vest`s capabilities! I cannot recommend this product highly enough! After reading the recent reviews of the three top brands, this vest comes out way on top and I can fully concur with the findings. Way to go guys!

Vest is an asset to surfing in cold water. It heats up very fast and provides enough heat that I had to turn the power to low several times. This is good because it prolongs battery life. It seems well constructed and was fairly comfortable underneath my 4/3 wetsuit. It's a little clunky but as battery technology improves I'm sure that the battery size will be reduced and will be less cumbersome. The heat is between the shoulder blades and a little down the back. In the future it would be nice if there were a much more even distribution of heat throughout a wetsuit including down the thighs and upper arms, but for now I highly recommend this product. It adds heat into your wetsuit and will make surfing cold water more enjoyable. (Santa Cruz, CA)
Cannot without anymore...

During our winter, we wouldn't wanna go into the water without it anymore. Really helps staying warm, thus allowing to reduce the wetsuit thickness. Long lasting battery power, easy and fast to charge. It'd be even nicer with the heating patch extending further down. Sometimes trouble with the controller after getting wet - very difficult to change levels. All in all, very satisfied with the gear and great service. Thanks guys.
Simply a most for winter water kiting!

I live on Hatteras Island and kite the Real Slick all winter. At first I was using a drysuit in the really cold weather (sub-50) but I found water was always getting in someplace and my feet and legs would get cold after about a half hour. Then I bought the Thermalution Surf Series (15M) and started using it under my 4/3 wetsuit. What a difference. Normally I could use this wetsuit down to about 50. With the heated vest I've had it on in 25mph winds with the air in the very low 40's and I feel like it's early fall! Literally, I get off the water when I get tired not cold! Not only am I warm but I'm kiting better too, simply because I don't fear the big chill of a flush.
I'm planning on using this vest for surfing too.
I pretty much stopped for the winter once the ocean got below 60 but I'm pretty sure I could be out there now (with the waters in the 40's with this vest.

I used my heated rashy for the first time the other day. I is toasty warm. It did leave a perfect red outline of the heating elements on my back for like 4 hours. It itched for a couple hours and was gone by the morning. I think it was from turning on my shirt on low under my dry wetsuit for a pre session warm up. No harm done, just wondering if that's normal. I think you guys could improve the design greatly, if you continue the heating elements lower down to the S1/ L5 disc area. I noticed my lower back problem zone could use direct heat. It would be nice if the elements wrapped around to the lower back and stopped at the "love handle" area.
All together, it's awesome!
Changes winter surfing completely. Its an amazing feeling to be warm in the winter surf!

Wore this for the first time after Christmas - water temp around 42 degrees - air temp in the 30s and windy. I wore my 4/3 hooded wetsuit (instead of my full winter 6/4 suit) with the thermalution on low and I was nice and toasty. My friend was all bundled in his 6/4 suit, no thermalution, and he was cold. Even on low power, it is such a great feeling to have some heat hit you in the cold water. Like another reviewer said, never will the cold deter me from surfing again in the winter. Awesome product.
Great Way to help stay warm in the cold water.

Wow, what a difference it makes to have a heated shirt on under your wetsuit. This is the cats meow. I only gave it 4 stars though because one of the coils quit on me. Not a problem in the end. Warranty Baby!!
Hey, It's worth a shot if you can afford it. Life is good.
Great invention! Takes the chill off

I was hesitant about the price. I read all the reviews and this product was rated the best. For me it comes down to this, I didn't like being cold during the winter months, this heated rash guard keeps me warm resulting in me surfing more often even when the waves aren't firing just cause coldness isn't a factor. When it is firing, I turn the rash guard on during the lulls. Bottom line, I surf more during winter because of this heated rash guard. Well worth the cash$$.
