Because our retail store now offers a lot more than just Rev'it! we created separate web site for our local Southern California brick and mortar store to show what we actually have to offer. Check it out and spread the word. Cheers,

Awersome. Congratulations Dennis and continued good luck,

Bought a Sand jacket last year and its been working well but I just bought a new pair of summer gloves. No gauntlet and now my sleeves keep unzipping as I'm riding. Any hint or tip to keep the sleeve zips zipped?

All my other gloves are gauntlet so the zippers stay zipped. Thanks.

It depends on the style of zipper you have. If the pull has black plastic cover on it, just flip it back and it should lock it. If it's all metal there is not much you can do.

It's metal with a black plastic cover, but no locking pin. The zippers on the chest vents do have a locking pin. I'll have to switch jackets for summer cause it consistently unzips. Please send a comment back to HQ that they really don't need a locking pin on the vent zippers but it would be most beneficial on the sleeve zippers. Thanks.

Question Alternative Revit mesh jacket to Airwave

Hey gang,

I have a Revit Airwave that I got off an inmate that is about three seasons old. I like the jacket but the sizing has never really fit me that great for this model. Can anyone provide me with an alternative summer type mesh jacket recommendations from Revit. I am looking at the Tarmac Air, Turbine and Tornado. I would ideally like one that is more of a US style fit rather than the Euro fit. All advice is appreciated.

new products on revit website

Just in case anyone cares, I noticed that Rev'IT! has updated their website. A new jacket that is interesting for those looking for an off-road jacket along the lines of the a Klim Badlands (maybe not so hard core) called the Poseidon GTX has shown up. GoreTex 2L Pro, good venting, a colour other than black 40% less than a Badlands Pro (in the EU at least).

If you like me believe a waterproof layer belongs on the outside next to the water and not between your skin and a soggy, cold outer layer of fabric, then this jacket may be worth a look.

Where I live, it makes the most sense to me to wear a pro-shell style garment; if you live somewhere where this is not the case, please don't write a rant that only a removeable liners makes sense and anyone looking for a pro-shell must be a complete idiot and should be beaten, then shot, lit on fire, etc.

The bad news is a vendors website I came across when I tried to find out the MSRP (about 700 Euro) stated the jacket will be available in late October.

What you think of using long REV'IT coat jackets:

REV'IT MANHATTAN
http://www.fc-moto.de/epages/fcm.sf/...le-Jacket-0001
http://www.revit.eu/it/manhattan/#/manhattan

REV'IT AVENUE
http://www.fc-moto.de/epages/fcm.sf/...le-Jacket-0001
http://www.revit.eu/en/#/products/FJT145

What I am worrying about - is: when you fall down, the jacket can easily leave your back or front - open - as it is loose in bottom part.
Also - elbow protectors seem to be loose, when you do not use liner - no velcro on sleeves.

What you think?

Where are you located? If you are in good old USA, you have zero chance of getting these models here so you have nothing to worry about.

To answer your question in general, every jacket presents some kind of compromise. Urban looking jackets are more fashinable but offer less protection. Racing jackets are more protective but look a little outrageous in the city. It's up to you to decide what style you are gong to use, there is no one garment that does everything to the max.

On another note we just received some long anticipted Rev'it! jeans

I just received my sand 2 jacket... was wondering if its normal to feel some air coming through the front two chest vents even when they are zipped up? I feel some airflow coming in at the top of the zips....

Normally people complain about the lack of airflow :) I guess just a little bit of air through the zipper is normal, if you have waterproof / wind breaking liner installed this should not be an issue. Did you notice that the main zipper has a retractable gator just for this reason?

By the way I'm glad this thread is back on top. After almost 3 years in new location I could say that almost everything is where I want it to be

Perhaps it's too cold? :) The outer shell is not designed to be windproof, it just holds everything together and provides abrasion resistance.
