REV'IT! Athos Air Vest
Good product by a great company sold by another great company.
I recently purchased this in order to comply with new laws where I live and work. I wanted something durable, stylish, and something that flows a good amount of air for the summer time. Since I already have other Rev'It gear and because this was highly rated I went with this option. Ordered a small and it fits good, snug, over my Rev'It Spectrum jacket with the liners in. My son says it looks like it was made to go with my Spectrum jacket. Can't respond as to summer time airflow yet. When summer gets here I'll update this. My only gripe is that I wish it had a pocket somewhere. Other vests have pockets, but I preferred to stay with the Rev'It line. So that was my compromise. So far no problems with quality, as has been my experience with my Rev'It garments. Revzilla as usual was outstanding with their service.

Gives me peace of mind
I bought this vest to fit over my black Dianese Laguna jacket. It fits great, provides good airflow, and is constructed very well. It's also about as stylish as a hi-viz vest can be. My tiny complaint is I wish it had a pocket or two. I have to unzip it to get to my jacket's pockets.
Overall, I feel very confident now that people will see me coming- it's BRIGHT. Well worth the money.

Nice looking vest
Flows a lot of air. Nice looking jacket at a decent price. I believe the vest ran slightly smaller. I have a Large jacket so I thought I should buy a large vest....it seems to be slightly to tight. I would have sent it back but it still does the job and flows loads of air.

Wearing over Dainese Razon Leather Jacket
As always, RevZilla shipping was incredibly fast. The Rev'It vest is great. I ride a Triumph Tiger 800 (seat in high position) and bought a size large vest to go over a size 54 Dainese Razon leather jacket. After a 200+ mile round trip home for fathers day in 80 degree weather, the vest did breathe quite well. I was a bit hot, but it was because of my riding pants, maybe my next purchase from RevZilla...I know it would get here in two days :D
-Quality hi-viz material
-Excellent reflective material
-Quality zipper - didn't have any issues with it unzipping a bit while riding like other reviewers
-Comes with a hi-viz pouch
-not baggy and doesn't act like a parachute
-Zipper pull is kind of annoying when it flaps at your chin and neck area at higher speeds
-A little difficult getting on and off with armor in the jacket, would sometimes get caught on elbow and shoulder pads
-no pocket, so getting something out of the jacket underneath requires unzipping two articles of clothing
Overall a fantastic vest for the money, and Rev'It quality is top notch.

Great hi-viz vest.
Very useful for riding during night time and feel confident. Very visible to others on the road. Air flow is great and fit with or without riding jacket. Easy to bring and suitable for hot weather. Very satisfied.

Refined hi viz
Have already noticed a difference with being seen. Flows air like crazy. Fits good and snug, and has the simple refined look that revit is known for... Or at least as refined as hi-viz can be.

This product has great features
I use this vest with a Rev'it Outback jacket. It is a great alternative if you don't want to buy a dedicated high-viz jacket but want the high-viz option on occasion (e.g., my night-time after work commute). It fits well over said jacket and flows plenty of air.

Can you see me?!
I use this over my Outback & Airwave jkts during my work commute on Los Angeles city streets and it gives me a little piece of mind. It's bright, fits well over the jackets and I'd highly recommend this vest for those finding themselves riding through congestion regularly.
