Thermalution Surf Series (15M)
Thermalution® is by far the warmest heated wetsuit product available for surfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, SUP, or any other top-of-water sport! Equipped with DOUBLE THE BATTERY POWER of other Heated Wetsuit products, you will immediately notice the heat difference when turning on the heat. With a weight of only 1.5lbs, the only thing you will notice about this suit during your session is the warmth. With three levels of adjustable heat, the Thermalution Surf Series allows you to change the temperature of your wetsuit during your session adding more warmth when you are cold or even turning it off if you start to get too warm. The Thermalution Surf Series gives you absolute control of the amount of warmth in your suit.
Run Times at Various Temperatures:
Low: 2 Hours 15 Minutes
Med: 90 Minutes
High: 60 Minutes
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.
Wearing beneath a wetsuit
The Thermalution Surf Series suit is designed to be worn beneath your wetsuit to give you the added warmth needed when your core temperature needs it the most. Thermal protection of a wetsuit is limited to insulate your body and minimize heat loss. The more sealed your wetsuit is, the warmer you will feel. The Thermalution Surf Series has the ability to get extremely warm. If you are in a DryLock or other High Quality Chest Zip WetSuit like our Isurus Wetsuits, the low setting will be the only setting you need to use. However, if you are in a suit that frequently flushes a lot of water in through the neck, you will need to use the higher settings to account for more water entering and exiting the wetsuit.
The Thermalution can be worn with any of your wetsuits, allowing you to get into thinner neoprene earlier in the Spring. Adding the Thermalution to your 4/3 will keep you out of the 5.4 for longer than all of your buddies. Thermalution 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 Rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries. (Charger Included) Battery Size: 4x2x0.5 Inches.
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.

The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is that I have only used it twice, and don't know how durable it is or how long the batteries will last.
On a 30 degree new england december day at sunrise, with 48 deg water, I had the vest on high for 1.5 hrs and it cranked heat the entire time. High was almost too much. Used it with an oniel pyrotech 4/3
On a 42 degree, with 48 degree water, the low setting was almost too much.
Expensive, but on a cold day will keep you in the water longer. Worth the money
Best heated vest anywhere!

I live in the New England area and water gets damn cold here! Have used a few of the "other brands" for heated vests. Nothing compares to this one! Heats right up! Easy to control! Highly recommend it to anyone who surfs, SUP's,kite boards!!!

This rashvest is the best thing to keep you warm .went out when temp is -1 and was warm as toast.much better than others I have tried 5 stars.
So far so good

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.
