No wonder M54 was a bit too big in the body - it was a couple of sizes too big :) People with long arms always face this compromise - get a jacket that fits well in the body or one that has sleeves long enough. I prefer happy medium - that is why it's called compromise.

By the way I'm surprised you find M54 TURBINE fits the same as M54 IGNITION. From my experience, the TURBINE feels like it's at least 1/2 size bigger. Thanks for sharing your experience. Cheers,

Dennis

I have relatively wide shoulders and narrower waist and thought the European fit would be slimmer. This was with the waist adjusters tightened to the max.

Just to confirm the fit of the 54, I recently ordered a Turbine in size 54 and it fits just like the Ignition. Sleeves are perfect. Good luck.

Chest is about 40-41, like I mentioned I'm a pretty slender guy so finding gear is a challenge. I do have a mens 50 on order so excited to see how it fits, I appreciate the input from you guys.

M50 will be too tight, M52 should fit just about perfect. I'm afraid you ordered from wrong place Cheers,

Earlier this week I got nice Silver / Safari DEFENDER jacket for myself. I am now having change of heart and want to go all Black for that sinister motorcycle look. Anyone wants like new DEFENDER in size M for a good price?

Is this the new Ventura?

I was googling and I found this:

http://www.fc-moto.de/epages/fcm.sf/...S&Currency=USD

http://www.fc-moto.de/WebRoot/FCMoto...Jacket-SB2.jpg

Here's the site info:

Revit Ventura Ladies Jacke

Serious equipment for the serious female rider. The VENTURA Ladies’ jacket includes all of the important safety and practical features of a top-of-the-line adventure jacket, but with some specific features that enhance the comfort level even more. A good example is the waterproof, detachable liner, which can be easily removed and stowed away in the back pocket. Huge two-way zippers at the sleeves, and a fully removable collar that hides a big air mesh panel, allow the wind to flow in freely. Bottom line? The world’s first true ladies’ adventure jacket. Ready for Paris… but made for Dakar.

PROTECTION

Outer shell PWR|shell 500D stretch , PWR|shell 500D , Lorica® , Dynax mesh
Insulation detachable thermal liner
Waterproofing & Breathability detachable hydratex® | 3L
Visibility laminated reflection
Protection ProLife® ladies CE protection , fully perforated EVA foam
ERGONOMIC

Fit tour fit , regular
Adjustability flexisnap , adjustment strap , UTA | tab , adjustment tab
Ventilation VCS | zippers , VCS | panels
Features collar hook , stretch lips , long and double short connection zipper , removable collar
Pockets inner pockets , membrane storage pocket , stash pockets


Looks nice! Any more info ?

Dennis,

Which of the Rev'IT jackets will work the best for sub-30 degrees for touring and sport touring purposes? No off-roading, just going fast on the super slab, sweepers and twisties as well as commuting to work during the winter. Main objective to stay warm, comfort is kinda secondary (anything at or bellow freezing temp will be uncomfortable).

Thanks.

You are very resourceful :) Yes, this is the exact jacket you have ben waiting for - VENTURA



Do you see that silver piece that starts at the collar and covers your shoulders? It comes off in the summer, exposing a lot of mesh. The sleeves are designed similar to SAND jacket, long zippers you see on them are the vents. Pretty much everything else you need to know is in the specs. As someone who has seen one in person, I could say that it feels amazing just touching it.

O,

LEGACY jacket will fit your needs perfectly. Combine it with heated vest or a jacket (I can get you one) and you will be cruising comfortably in any temperature you dare to go out in. And when I say comfortably I mean that despite your expectations you will not feel like a Michelin man.

Just CALL me and I will make sure you feel warm and fuzzy Cheers,

D.

If you like all leather gloves, you cannot go wrong with ALASKA. If you prefer lighter feeling of textile and prefer more technical gear, try BASTION. Both are Gore-Tex and great.

Hi Dennis. Can we expect a women's glove with Gore-Tex soon? Or did I miss that on your page?
