Are you talking about the metal snap on the pocket? Was it damaged in a crash? Depending on circumstances this could be a warranty issue. How old is the jacket? Regards,

Dennis

I had a cayenne (which paramedics cut off me last year, not a good year) that IIRC had better waterproof pockets. I bought it elsewhere, but did not know about you. I am thinking about either Cayenne Pro pants or Turbines, but will have to wait till after the holidays. I will probably try to glue some velcro on, the sticky stuff lasts about a week to a month, depending on rain and sweat. The new lining is awesome by the way, this is my three season jacket, and I have worn it down to mid 20s F ok, couldn't do that with the last one. Good luck with the shop, I used to work in a specialty retail shop and know it is not easy.

Nicomama and I missed you! I hope you talked to Joann Donn with GearChic. She endorses Rev'It products and would probably post your Beach Moto deets on her site. You should have come! Not much Rev'It representation or clothing at all at the show.

I stopped by your booth on Saturday afternoon and GearChic was busy talking to someone. It did feel really awkward hanging around there, other females in the vicinity were giving me strange looks So I guess you have to stop by the store now

I'm still on the fence about opening tomorrow. Perhaps for half a day?

Rev'it gear rocks!

Dennis:

Here's a pic of me wearing my Rev'it gear on my little KLX250SF. In case you can't tell, I'm wearing the Ignition jacket, Legacy pants, and the Orion gloves. It's a balmy 48 degrees today so we went on a long ride to the local park.

I hope Santa was good to you and your family. Happy Holidays!

The Ventura still has a removable liner....this makes the jacket of little interest to us as we are not into liners anymore...why can't Rev'It just make a jacket for women with the same exact features as the guy jacket? The new Everest jacket for instance...waterproof outside in...?

I only have one question...

when is the Ventura available (your web page doesn't say "preorder")???

OK, I actually have a second question. How is the sizing? I am wearing 38 in the Ignition and Turbine. Ignition is a little big in the chest (without thermal vest which is too hot) but fits great everywhere else and the Turbine is a perfect fit now that I've "downsized". Current measurements are 33" chest/bust, 27" waist. Should I stay with a Size 38?

Well, let's wait and see. If EVEREST jacket is a success, REV'IT! may build female version of it, you never know.

Any jacket with waterproof liner built into the shell is definitely better for rainy climates, however with large majority of riders using their jackets in intermediate / hot conditions removable liners are way to go. Even with fancy Gore-Tex Lockout vents EVEREST will never be as breathable as VENTURA with all vents open. Just ask any Klim suit owners. I would rather deal with the liner a couple times a week / month than suffocate every day of the summer.

Lisa,

Nobody really knows what the sizing is going to be like and all the samples I have seen are pre-production so I cannot trust them. When first batch comes in first week of February we will know for sure. I suspect you will need size 36 if it's sized anything like the SIREN. What is your favorite color?

Dennis

Silver/Black!

OK, I guess we will just have to wait until then. The mornings are still cold here in February so I will be your tester. (Thank God we're not stuck with pink or baby blue colors - yuck!) Personally I like the lighter colors as theoretically it's cooler in the summer and it makes me just a bit more visible during my early morning or late evening commutes.

that's the beauty of having options...different strokes for different folks. My cayenne Pro though have to say is really looking weathered after only using it for one season....hard to make it look clean being the light coloured arms. But in the end this new jacket I am sure will make a lot of women happy. We are just watching the market to see who comes out with the suit of our "dreams" first.

Different strokes for different folks for sure. Keep waiting and eventually your "dream" jacket will come out.
