REV'IT! Athos Air Vest
Great tight-fitting hi-viz riding vest.
I use this over a RevIt Air (hi-viz) jacket and it fits like a glove, both are XL. I'm 6'1" @ 220, so a little porky for most motorcycle jackets. This XL fits great, nice and snug. Most vests will fly around when the wind hits them, but because this is made from a heavier material, it stays secure in place.
This item was out of stock for quite some time. Glad to see them back in!
Well worth the money.

Best looking HV Vest out there, and is well made.
I really like this vest, and it fits over my Rev'it! Galactic jacket perfectly. I have a large jacket, and the large vest.
The zipper is easy to operate, and the material is even slightly stretchy, which makes getting it on over the jacket very easy.
My one gripe, and it's a little one, is that I can notice the Scotchbrite reflector strip across the belly wearing against my fuel tank. I haven't had the vest long, and I hope it doesn't show more wear marks. Trivial really.
Okay, second gripe. It's quite expensive for what it is. Perhaps the price is high because it seems to use a similar mesh to the jackets, which may be a higher end fabric.

This product definitely makes you more visible.
It's a nice product and I bought it because I wanted to have the option to making my jackets more visible and I didn't want to buy a full hi-viz suit. A tad pricey for what you get but it definitely works.
The only downside is that with the vest on you are unable to access any pockets you may have on your clothes underneat and the vest itself has no pockets.
Comes in its own pouch and can store easily under a seat or in some bags.

My first, and wont be my last, Rev'It product! Very well made and fits snug over my riding jacket. Make sure you buy the same size as your riding jacket.

Comfortable to wear. Bright color does the job
Husband and I bought two of these for us to wear on a recent 2000-mile trip. Was very glad to know we had the vests on, and, hopefully, being noticed. Evaluating after we got home, and were definitely convinced that the vests made us much more visible to the other drivers, especially in bad weather. Thankfully, we had no "close encounters" and we feel the vests definitely made a difference. Would recommend to my friends.

Product videos are excellent and very helpful!
The Rev'It Athos Air Vest is exactly as advertised. It fits over my vented jacket with out being loose, eliminating it flapping around in the wind. It provides the extra visibility, especially at night I as looking for. I also like the fact that the company logo is small and not obnoxious unlike their jackets which makes me not want to buy some of their products.

Be Safe & Be Seen
I am a daily commuter and I am usually riding into work around 5AM when it is still dark out. I purchased the Revit Athos Air Vest to help maintain visibility on the road and also to comply with the Navy's motorcycle regulations when riding on base. The Athos Vest is a high quality riding vest that does not hinder the flow of air when riding in the summer months but works equally well with any jacket. The vest is meant to fit snuggly over your riding jacket and is fitted properly so there is not flapping. As the size chart specifies, purchase whatever size you wear for your riding jacket. I wear a MD jacket and I purchased a MD vest - the fit is perfect.
The High-Viz yellow coloration stands out in all lighting conditions and the added reflective strips do their job well. I have been very impressed with the vest and would strongly recommend it.

I bought this for a 2 wk trip I had planned, when it arrived I tried it on it fit perfectly over both jackets I was taking. The material is great it really moves with you and hugs nicely so the wind doesn't catch it. I went to dinner with family,( me on bike them in car) we got caught in heavy traffic and I was glad to hear the vest really made me easy to spot. It also gave me some confidence when I got caught in the rain that others could see me.
