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.

This is my third heated surf shirt, and I am really happy and impressed. My first two were quicksilvers model. (You can see my review on Amazon.com. User pb4sc) The thermulation product is better built, 3 temp settings are awesome. (I have only used low so far) 2 batteries means longer water time. Built way better than the quicksilver model Fits great. My only wish was that it would have a turtle neck. A little pricey, but still a great product.
Tried out a friend's Thermalution

Tried out a friend's Thermalution heated wetsuit for the first time the other day. So legit! I was able to stay in the water so much longer and actually be warm! Quality stuff.
BEST HEATED RASHGUARD

Tried another brand, it was worthless. Now I wear the Thermulation Surf Series under my wetsuit for bodysurfing and photography at The Wedge in Newport Beach - works just as advertised! Lets me surf and shoot year-round. Thank you, heatedwetsuits.com !!!
I'm lovin it...

Reasonably warm but not hot
Posted by Paul Manchester on 12th Mar 2013
I have used the heated shirt under my 4-3, year-old wetsuit for surfing in water that is about 50 degrees. It does not work as well as I had hoped. Heating the core is the stated objective, and it may do that fairly well. It feels warm to hot on my back while in use. However, by around 1.5 hours in the water my toes begin to go numb, so the heating of the core/trunk is not as effective as I would hope. This is while on medium setting. If I use it on high, it is too hot on my back.
Overall it is better than not having it, but it does not provide a qualitatively different experience in cold water. Ultimately I still get cold by the end of the session, just not as cold

I flip on the switch and pretend I'm in Hawaii! I love the way the Thermalution works as well as the idea of it. I am a lot warmer when surfing in the frigid Nor Cal water. The only reason I don't give four stars is because the battery packs on either side are a little uncomfortable on my ribs. I wonder if they could put them on the back? I'm sure it's been thought of and might even be more uncomfortable there. Perhaps they just take some getting used to. Either way, totally worth it!
Warm enough for New Hampshire

I've worn in under my 4/3 until just after xmas and now under my 5/4/3. Plenty Warm. Wish they had heated gloves and boots!
It's reinvigorated my passion for winter surfing. 42 years old was pretty much over it until I got this. I'll even do double session now.
Went with this brand after reading about problems with the Quicksilver version.
heated surf session
Posted by Marcel van Wensveen (the Netherlands) on 18th Dec 2012
My first heated surfsession ever was great! The water was still 8 celsius and the air around 9, so normaly i wouldn't need extra warmth, but i tested the vest on the lowest setting and it was too hot! I was in the water for about two hours and i had to cool myself every ten minutes. So i think i will do fine when temperatures drop below 0 celcius. The only comment i have to make is that the vest comes with an electric plug that is not suited in holland ( whe need two round pins instead of flat ones) so i had to replace it!
Thanks a lot,
Marcel van Wensveen
Love the warmth. Great add to my surf collection.

There is only one thing I don't like about it and that is the weight of the batteries. I ride small shortboards so any extra weight isn't ideal. But turning on the heater in cold water feels amazing. I hope they come out with smaller batteries that work the same. Or I will just have to buy bigger boards :)
Great product. Thanks a ton. Can't wait for more exciting equipment from heatedweatsuits

Surfed with my new heated rash guard last weekend for 3 days in the Straights of Juan De Fuca (50 Degree Water Temp). The heated liner was a complete game changer. I stayed out for over 2 hours with no gloves and was totally toasty! I can’t believe how much warmer my hands and feet are with that heater. I was expecting some minor heat benefit at the extremities but my hands and feet were as warm as they are in summer.
Had a chance to use it last weekend for a 3 mile downwind paddle on my standup paddleboard. Wind was gusting over 40MPH with some fun swell. The shirt was too hot to turn on for very long during the paddle but it was great when we were finished. Normally when you stop paddling, the clammy sweat and wind combine to make the wetsuit change miserable. I cranked the heat and left the shirt for last after getting pants and shoes on. My partner was shivering and cursing while he frantically changed. I had a leisurely change out in my toasty shirt!
Thank you for making a great product that really works. I will be highly recommending it to our surf crew.
