Olympia Ranger Jacket

Olympia’s Ranger Vent Tech jackets deliver an unbeatable combination of airflow, weather protection and versatility. There are plenty of waterproof breathable jackets that claim to function in a wide range of temperatures but despite these claims, their lack of adequate venting limits their use to cooler riding conditions. And forget trying to tackle a spirited dual sport ride in gear that lacks proper venting. Breathable or not, you’re going to overheat without proper airflow. Equipped with Olympia’s “Two Layer System Design” this jacket offers the ultimate in multi season riding comfort.

Layer One - Consists of a coated 500 and 2000D Cordura shell plus an interior waterproof/breathable seam sealed membrane to tackle wet weather rides. Additional features include a stretch knit hood with a rubberized Aqua Barrier and neck gator detail concealed under the collar, five water-tight pockets, 3M Scotchlite piping at the front and back yokes plus thermo weld reflective detailing at the side arms.

Layer Two - Includes a removable wind and water resistant breathable stretch nylon soft shell with Thermolite insulation, mandarin style knit trim collar, two zipper pockets and oversized interior stash pocket. for additional weather protection and maximum comfort during cold weather rides.

AVS Venting System - Fold up chest pocket flaps and VELCRO® brand closures lock down torso straps hold chest zipper vents open to create adjustable air flow. Shoulder to forearm venting plus vertical back vents with fold back vent covers create maximum airflow and offer protection from the elements when you need it.

Features:

  • Outer shell constructed in coated 500 and 2000 denier Cordura fabric
  • Waterproof/breathable membrane adds double waterproof protection
  • VELCRO® brand closures lock down torso straps at chest pocket vents create adjustable airflow

Love it, fits well, looks great, protects well
The Joe Rocket jacket I had been using for colder weather riding was showing its age: I bought it 14 years ago, and while it was at one time my absolute favorite piece of clothing, it was now somewhat dated. The zippers had started to fail, and the exterior was wearing out. It was time for a new jacket.

I am a big fan of functional clothing: clothes that do something more than just cover you up. My old Joe Rocket jacket, through a bewildering array of reversible zippers, liners and snaps, could be configured into everything from a dual-layer cold weather jacket to a summer mesh jacket - all while retaining its armored protection. I had since moved on to an Olympia Airglide 3 mesh jacket for summer heat. Now I needed something for the cold weather.

I had done a fair bit of research, starting again with Olympia, as they had served me so well with my Airglide mesh jacket and pants, and my Horizon rain gear. I tried quite a few different jacket/pant combinations out, and in the end decided on the Olympia Ranger Jacket - paired with the Ranger 3 Over Pants. Available in a wide variety of colors, I selected a black and neon green color, for high visibility.

Features of this jacket as published by the manufacturer:

Outer shell constructed in coated 500 and 2000 denier Cordura fabric
Waterproof/breathable membrane adds double waterproof protection
Velcro lock down torso straps at chest pocket vents create adjustable airflow
Double storm placket front closure
Removable CE Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders
Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector
Cool mesh airflow lining
Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows and waist
Full circumference neoprene collar insert
3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back
Thermo Weld reflective detail at side arms
Five zippered waterproof storage pockets plus a large zippered waterproof rear storage pocket

I have now had this jacket for a month and a half, having ridden approximately 2,000 miles through weather ranging from 40F (4C) to 85F (29C), bright sunshine and pouring rain. Olympia bills this jacket as waterproof, and it is, in that while wearing it, you will not get wet. The jacket itself beads water off for the most part, however it can get damp - on the exterior. The interior of the jacket stays completely dry. If riding in a cold rain, I would want to have a waterproof shell, such as the Horizon rain gear that I use. Down to about 48F (9C), the jacket alone with a thin, long-sleeved shirt is sufficient. Below that, you want the thermal liner installed, which is good down to below 40F (4C). At the warmer end of the scale, I started feeling uncomfortable at around 75F (24C), even with the venting opened up. I do have limited airflow on my large faired Goldwing however, so the jacket's venting ability might be more efficient on bikes with more airflow. The inside of the jacket feels like a wind and waterproof liner, and is a bit uncomfortable against your bare arms when wearing a T-shirt, particularly when it gets a bit warm. I wish it had a mesh liner, at least in the arms.

The jacket is constructed of a thick and strong Cordura, with much thicker and abrasion-resistant Cordura on the shoulders and elbows. There is highly reflective Scotchlite piping down each arm, across the front, across the back, and a large reflective patch on each shoulder. The jacket is a mid-length jacket, to prevent wind from coming up underneath it - something I really hated about my old Joe Rocket jacket.

The back of the jacket has a vast expanse of high-visibility green (in this color scheme), and two zippers at the bottom which can be unzipped to adjust for an individual's girth. The backs of the sleeves also have velcro-secured straps to adjust the snugness of the elbows. The sleeve cuffs have velcro fasteners to snug them closed against wind and rain intrusion.

There is a belt that goes around the waist which can be adjusted to make sure the jacket fits snugly. The vertical strap in the picture is used to hold the vent open, which can be seen at the top of the picture.

At the bottom of the jacket is a bungee strap which can be tightened and secured to snug the bottom of the jacket to prevent wind intrusion.

There is a massive waterproof (lined) pocket that is located on the back of the jacket, at the very bottom. This is a truly huge pocket, and could be used to store gloves, several maps, or even a small rain suit.

There are also two large pockets on the front, both waterproof (lined) and easily accessible while riding, with gloves on.

The collar of the jacket unsnaps, and a neoprene waterproof hood unfolds. This hood is thin enough to wear under your helmet, and is designed to keep rain off your head and from dripping down your neck.

The hood has a full-coverage neck piece that keeps rain out of the front of the jacket, and works identically to the hood on my Horizon rain jacket, which I can be seen wearing here:

The interior of the jacket is completely windproof, and you can see the material that I complain about being next to my arms. There is decent back armor installed in a pouch on the back, along with air exit vents. There is a zipper to fasten the jacket to compatible pants, or a belt can be hooked to it.

The back protector is articulating. I do wish the pocket was a bit larger and allowed the option of using larger back armor if desired.

There are vents on the chest and down each arm. There are flaps held in place with velcro. Once the flaps are pulled up, they velcro to themselves, forming a ridge to help scoop air into the vent. The vent is then unzipped, and air moves into the mesh, and from there into the jacket. The chest vents have straps below them, which when pulled down, pull the vents open to help admit more air. These are reasonably effective, as long as there is airflow to move into them. Obviously at low speeds, these will not do much.

The zippers on the vents are self-sealing, to prevent the entry of air or water when they are closed up.

The front of the jacket has a decent sized breast pocket, and a beefy main zipper, flanked by weatherproof flaps. Once the zipper is shut, he flap on the right is snapped to the left, then the flap on the left is snapped on top of it to the right. This creates a completely weatherproof seal that neither rain nor wind can get through.

The collar is lined with a very soft fabric that feels great against your neck!

The collar can be left open, or snapped shut as shown. I find that my helmet buckle tends to catch on the collar pull tab at times when I am looking down, but it's not a big annoyance.

The jacket includes a thermal liner which fastens both at the top and at the end of each sleeve. This liner has two hand-warmer pockets as well as another internal breast pocket. A great feature is the fact that the thermal liner is itself an attractive jacket that can easily be worn on its own - so once you arrive at your destination, you can pull this liner out of your jacket, and wear it around until it's time to leave again.

The inside of the liner jacket reveals its true purpose: preservation of heat. It does this very well, and is extremely warm once installed.

As I mentioned, my biggest complaint: the material in the arms. If you are at all perspiring (which can happen when temperatures rise at all, or when stuck in traffic), your arms feel like they are sticking to this material. Of course, this is only a problem if you are wearing a T-shirt. Wearing a long-sleeved shirt (which you would likely be doing in colder weather) negates this problem.

Wearing the jacket along with the matching Olympia Ranger 3 Over Pants and Alpinestars Valparaiso Drystar Gloves, I am ready for moderate to cold weather riding.

The reflective piping on the jacket and the shoulder patch glows quite brightly in the dark when illuminated by headlights (or in this case, a camera flash).

The reflective strips across the back similarly glow very brightly, and the wide expanse of high-visibility green aids in daytime visibility.

Pros:
- Very warm in cold weather
- Completely windproof
- Waterproof
- Zippers and snaps can be worked with gloves on
- Slippery interior material makes it easy to get on and off
- Big pockets allow for lots of easily-accessed storage
- Comfortable
- Good back and elbow armor
- Good adjustments to fit individuals
- Strong, reinforced abrasion-resistant Cordura fabric
- Decent venting system
- Waterproof hood
- Soft, comfortable collar

Cons:
- Quite bulky to store on your bike when not being worn
- Thermal lining jacket bulky to carry when not installed
- Feels sticky in warmer weather if wearing a T-shirt underneath

Overall I'm extremely happy with this jacket as a replacement for my old, worn out jacket. It is now my new favorite piece of clothing! As I mentioned, I've got about 2,000 miles on this jacket in varying weather conditions, and this jacket has shrugged off anything I could throw at it. Highly recommended.

Great jacket, looks great too
I had very high hopes for this jacket, and for the most part I've been very pleased. I've worn this jacket so far in temps ranging from 36 F (liner in, vents closed) to 86 F (liner out, vents open, collar open and slightly zipped down). It is plenty warm for low temps with the liner in (and the liner really is a pretty good jacket on its own, too). I really like the attention to small details, there are so many small but thoughtful features. The front waterproof pockets are very small, as has been said by others. My biggest complaint with this jacket is that it's waterproof she'll is maybe not quite as breathable as one would hope. It's not bad, but it does feel a bit swampy in warm and especially damp weather. I am disappointed by the lining in the sleeves. It feels a little plastic-y and gets a bit uncomfortable if you're wearing short sleeves in humid weather. It could use a mesh lining (like the mesh in the vents) between this layer and the rider's skin. Also occasionally get a little pinching or poking on my arms from the general area of the sleeve vents. Overall, not a big deal. Could probably be fixed by wearing a long sleeve baselayer, but would have expected a comfort liner to be built in. Overall I am very pleased and this has become my go-to jacket.

this product is not waterproof
My biggest problem with this jacket is that it is not waterproof as represented. On the contrary it will retain water and dampness. Vents well but extremely hot when not in motion. Would not re-purchase.

Great jacket at a reasonable price!
I bought this jacket in mid summer of 2014 at the Revzilla boutique in Philly. I'm six feet and weigh 155 lbs. and the small fits me fine. I had to upgrade to the d30 armor though because I could not bend my arms with the standard elbow and shoulder armor. Even with my long arms the arm length is more than long enough. It fits as though tailor made.

I ride a 2008 Kawasaki Nomad with a large windscreen and soft lowers on the crash bars, so I have a fair amount of protection. I wore the jacket all summer and then on the last day of October I left on a 25 day trip from NJ to Las Vegas and then to Guadalajara, Mexico and then back to NJ. I rode through lot's of rain ,some torrential, from NJ through Texas both going and returning. On the first day I got both wrists and lower forearms wet but I think it was because of how my totally soaked Gerbing heated gloves were transferring the moisture up the sleeves as this never happened again and that was only the beginning of the rain for this trip. So, I will say that this jacket is totally rain proof.

The ventilation going all the way up the arms is just awesome. Just unzip the front of the jacket down about ten inches from your neck and with the arm vents it is the best ventilated jacket I've ever had. As for the chest vents I didn't seem to notice any difference open or closed. I also with some practice was able to open and close the sleeve vents while riding.

As for the destination liner, it really looks sharp. In fact I wear it when my wife and I go out for dinner as my non motorcycle wardrobe I'm proud to say is as bad as it gets. Also, I can't speak of the warmth of it as I just wear heated gear and if I need it I turn it on.

What I don't like about this jacket is the washing instructions which call for hand washing. This is a big bulky jacket and my high viz version was filthy upon returning home. So I took a finger nail brush and with nearly straight laundry detergent scrubbed all the dirt on the high viz areas with good success except for a line where I leaned against my black luggage. I then placed it in the washing machine with a double rinse cycle and it came out looking pretty good although smelling like laundry detergent. Then I hung it outside to dry and it dried amazingly fast like it didn't absorb any water. Now my question is: is it still waterproof? Unfortunately I won't find out til I get to take a trip again because the rest of my riding is on sunny days from the high thirties and up. Maybe Olympia can chime in and tell us if I hurt the water proofness of the jacket. I also feel that the pockets are a little small. But on the other hand how big can they be on a size small jacket on a gangly six foot string bean with big hands?

Overall I like this jacket a lot. It is rain proof and wind proof and 1200 hundred denier in the impact zones, not to mention the high viz version is really sharp looking. I got smiles from everyone across the country and it wasn't because I'm good looking. The jacket just made an impression on almost everyone.

Great features at a modest price
This jacket offers great protection and 3 season wear at a really good price. The fit is right on for me and there is enough in the way of adjustments to make it fit just right. Haven't worn it in wet weather yet, so can't comment on that. I do like the hood, and many jackets do not offer this feature.

Awesome commuter jacket
Purchased high-viz for daily commuting. Have worn jacket daily for two months and its been great so far. Jacket is a little too roomy without inner-liner but with adjustments it snugs up enough. Great commuting jacket in temps up to ~85F.

Replaced AST2
This purchase replaced an aging AST2. The venting areas were made more secure by the addition of velcro all around the flaps. The larger velcro pull downs on the chest vents are easy to operate with a gloved hand. The stand alone liner appears to be a little more durable than the AST2 liner.
The hand pockets and cargo pockets on the front are much smaller than they are on the AST2.

Great!
I've been around from 10 to 30 Celsius (50 to 86 F) with this jacket, with and without rain and it was great. Lots of places to keep stuff, several air vents when needed and perfect lock from cold or rain when you shut all zippers. I have the beatifull "patriot" model. But, hey, those colors go along with several contries and the way they are placed in the jacket (red below, then blue, then yellow) is the Russian flag! No problem for me about that, actually. :-)
Most of the time I use it with with the thermal liner.
I used it with the Ranger 3 pants.

Best Buy! Sleeves long enough! Keeps you dry!
I read reviews on many jackets, but when I compared features to price, the Olympia Ranger jacket wins hands down! I own an Olympia Phantom one piece suit which I used for commuting before I retired, and I wanted something similar to that suit as it worked so well. But for touring I wanted a two piece, so I went with the Olympia Ranger jacket and pants. Using this jacket in warmer weather is great with all the vents open; it flows plenty of air even behind the fairing on my FJR. By the way I'm 6'2" and 190# with long arms, and the XL fits fine with sleeves long enough for me. I waited to write this review until I could test it in the rain, and yes it keeps me dry just like my Phantom suit did. The adjustments on the jacket give it a lot of flexibility to suit your particular measurements. I hate having to carry a rain suit, and with this jacket and pants combo I don't have to. Just zip up and close the flaps, you're waterproof! Price is very good for the quality and features of this jacket. Highly recommended!

2 thumbs up!
Just got this jacket and highly recommend it! I'm 5'-8", 165 lbs, 40" chest and the medium fits me pretty good. Jacket weighs 5.5 lbs and is not too heavy. I've ridden in 25 degree weather, for 25 minutes on my commute and I was fine. I wouldn't want to ride for 4 hrs like that but that's what heated gear is for. Definitely check out the Revzilla video and also the one on Olympia's website, both very good. I'm not going to repeat what's on those videos. Instead I'm going to focus more on the negative aspects of the jacket which all videos tend to gloss over.

First, I'm not crazy about the pockets. The lower front pockets fit my wallet but not much else. The hand warmer pocket is tiny too but more accessible. The front vents that double as pockets, good luck trying to get anything in and out of there. The zippered pocket on the inside is a decent size though.

Second, the elbow pads are REALLY stiff. Makes accessing any pocket or your helmet a chore. I ended up just swapping in the articulated elbow pad from my old jacket.

Those are my only gripes. Can't comment on ventilation yet. If you want a solid, touring, commuting, every day, 3.5 season jacket, look no further. Happy riding!

It Rains on and off so frequently on Vancouver Island that a waterproof outer shell was a must. I cant keep stopping. I need to ride year round so needed something considered 4 season. As much as I loved the Kathmandu I couldnt get over the lack of abrasion material in comparison to this one (at least from my research). The cordura build of this Jacket had me feeling safer about going down on the pavement. I would love to be able to sort your jackets and pants by waterproof outer shell.

It does not run large despite what others say. If you are a big guy stay away from this jacket. It would not fit. Ended up getting a first gear 4xl jacket and that fits great.

Rain and cold protection. I stay dry in the rain now. The integral hood was the reason that I went with this jacket instead of the First Gear Kilimanjaro.

I purchased this jacket with the knowledgeable help from the folks at Revzilla after explaining what I was looking for and really like this jacket in colder and rainy weather.
James S on Jan 3, 2016
Great fit and really warm, even when riding in December in Washington. So far, I'm loving this jacket.

Needed a waterproof jaket for longer trips

This is the badest assest jacket on the market.
Jim c on Jul 23, 2015
For the price, hard to beat.

Recommended by gear guide, wanted waterproof and CE armor, with lots of storage for a commuter.

To use in cold weather & to use year-round as rain gear.
John P on Apr 26, 2015
The combination of features, color scheme, price and reviews all seemed to add up to a winner for me.

I believe the safest items are those that prevent accidents from happening. This jacket looks to be very visible without being positively glaring.

I have long hair that I keep in a pony tail and I hope that the little hood will help me keep my pony tail neat and tidy. We'll see if it works for me.

Got the Patriot model. Very beatiful and functional. I'd strongly recommend it instead of Alpinestars and others.

My previous experience with Olympia products has been very good.
clive h on May 12, 2014
I have another Olympia jacket and I like the fit and quality. This one is a 3 season jacket, we need it for riding in Canada in the spring.
Paul V on Apr 9, 2014
Being a larger guy, I found the "American Fit" compelling and, after extensive research, believed Olympia to be the best product for the price point.
Matthew B on Apr 7, 2014
I needed a new all weather jacket and I liked the removable unlayer jacket option included with this coat.
Brian S on Mar 28, 2014
I'm have blue fjr1300 bike and air force veteran plates. The jacket is full of features needed on the northwest where I'm ride. Patriot says it all!

I was looking for a high viz textile jacket, with waterproof shell. Don't want to deal with a liner.This jacket has bonus features of hood in collar, some venting, and minimal velcro. Also looked good in the video.

really likeed the olympia ats2 jacket but no longer available so i thought i'd try the ranger
Sean D on Mar 9, 2014
It Rains on and off so frequently on Vancouver Island that a waterproof outer shell was a must. I cant keep stopping. I need to ride year round so needed something considered 4 season. As much as I loved the Kathmandu I couldnt get over the lack of abrasion material in comparison to this one (at least from my research). The cordura build of this Jacket had me feeling safer about going down on the pavement. I would love to be able to sort your jackets and pants by waterproof outer shell.

I've owned an Olympia in the past and loved it. Having lost 30lbs, this one is just as nice and now fits!

Is the interior waterproof/breathable seam sealed membrane a floating liner or bonded to the outer shell? In other words, will water be trapped between the outer shell and membrane?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No outside supp. to be watertight
I notice that the description on this jacket says that it is "COATED 500 and 2000 D Cordura". Is there a difference between a coating and being made of cordura? I notice that some jackets, such as the Motoquest, do not specify 'coated'.

Thanks

Does the jacket have the zipper on the bottom to connect to Olympia riding pants?
David C on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Morning David,

Yes, the Ranger jacket does have a zipper built into the lower back edge of the jacket, as well as a couple of loops that would accept a belt if you use one on your riding/rain pants.

I find the Ranger to be well designed, with the rain hood being a great feature if you have to ride in really wet conditions. The jacket's adjustability is also a strong point, both from a wind-shedding, as well as water-shedding, perspective.

Stay safe out there.

Looking to purchase my first motorcycle gear. I have been riding for just over 3ys and put on about 20,000 miles. Every year I seem to ride more. I commute daily about 24 mile total and occasionally will do a 3-5 day trip consisting of 1500-2000 miles. I live in Iowa and ride nearly everyday if its above 20 deg and not icy/snowy. Am looking for a jacket and pants combo that will keep me dry and warm. Would you recommend the Ranger jacket (what pants to compliment it)?
Tim V on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tim, as this is a fairly new jacket for me I have not been thru a winter with it. I can say that the liner is quite warm. I wore it out one day as a jacket with the temp around 60 and had to take it off I got so warm. The air vents in the jacket when closed seal up tight.
The pants I have are Olympia Airglide overpants from about 8 years ago. They are mesh and have a removable waterproof liner. They can be a little cool when you get down to the 30's but I absolutely love them.
Replaced jacket was Olympia also but somehow it got tight around the belly. Wink Wink nod nod.
For me Olympia quality is first rate. Order the jacket and when you see and feel the way it's made you'll be glad you did. If not, it's RevZilla just send it back.
Hope this helps.
Stay safe!
Sizing question for the Olympia Ranger Jacket:
I'm, 5'9 - about 190pounds but have a rather bulky chest (46.5")... What size should I opt for?? thanks.
A shopper on May 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'0 and about 230 so got some extra lbs, my chest is very close to yours and I bought an extra large, might be just a little snug around the waist but fits chest fine, I found the sizing charts to be very accurate. This is a fabulous jacket, been in cold (23 degrees), snow, rain, even small hail. The jacket performed well in all weather although above 90 will probably be too much. I your in weather below 30 you may want to remove inner liner and add a heated liner, above 30 no problem.

I'm looking for a new "all season" jacket and I like a lot of the Olympia Ranger features. But in the description regarding the armor, it only states "CE Motion Flex" and "CE approved". It does not tell CE Level 1 or CE Level 2. Can anyone clarify? Thanks.
Jerry B on Mar 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Tending towards some other brand due to only CE Level 1 armor in the Olympia line. For the money I think better armor should be included (CE Level 2) and not have to spend even more $$ on armor upgrades.
Looking for the jacket in the bull work in the rain forest and the highlands of Peru would this be a good choice?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I love the jacket and wear it for about 10-12k miles a year here in Iowa. So it's warm when it's cold and the venting is decent in the heat. I have done 1000 miles in a day when temps were around 95.

That said, in hard rains it leaks a little in the elbows. That's it.
I notice that the description says that the jacket is "COATED 500 and 2000 D Cordura". Is that different than being made of Cordura? Or is everything coated. I notice that some other jacket descriptions, such as the Motoquest, do not have 'coated' in the description.

Thanks!
A shopper on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The jacket is made of 500D and 2000D Cordura that has been treated with a water repellent coating. The coating prevents the outer material from absorbing water, making it easier for the waterproof membrane to remain breathable. The coating will need to be renewed from time to time depending on your riding frequency and conditions. It is best to wash the jacket with a non-detergent wash, hang it up, and spray with the water repellent coating of your choice while the jacket is still wet. Let it dry for a day or two, and you're good as new!
How waterproof is this jacket? I have a tourmaster transition 3 that failed miserably in a rain storm 2 weeks ago, I really am looking for a truly waterproof textile jacket
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Ranger is about as waterproof as anything out there at this price, but in my experience, there aren't many breathable jackets that will keep you dry in an all-day downpour. The Ranger is no exception. I've ridden dual-sport rides in wet to extremely wet conditions, and even riders with the $1000+ custom Gore-Tex gear weren't dry. That being said, even so-called "dry suits" meant for water sports get soggy at the end of the day. Being comfortable depends on putting together a system of all your clothing and avoiding undergarments that absorb water. There are simply too many flaps and zippers on just about any dual-sport jacket to to be absolutely waterproof. Something that sealed enough to do that would be miserable to ride in when it wasn't raining. The Ranger is a very well-built and comfortable jacket under a wide range of conditions.
