REV'IT! Athos Air Vest
Overall this is a good vest for creating visibility but as other reviewers have noted, Velcro instantly damages it. Even though I knew this from reading the reviews and was trying to be careful, a piece of Velcro glommed onto the vest within 5 minutes of having it out of the package. Now it's a little less nice. Buy something more durable.

Vey good quality and style, efficient air flow, it would be nicer with some pockets for ID and change

I recommend but with a cavieot
The fit and finish is amazing and it certainly does it's job as far as being blindingly bright but my only real gripe is that as soon as Velcro is brought into the equation everything goes down hill. It just seems to disintegrate as soon as Velcro touches it! I mean come on, there is a lot of Velcro on motorcycle gear, wouldn't you make it so it's at lease a little resistant to the stuff? Other than that it's great. So buyer beware, keep your Velcro away from this thing.

Quality practical vest for riding safety
I like the full vest design. I leave it over the jacket putting them on and taking them off together. Nice and supple. Cannot attest to air flow as my jacket is not vented in the area it covers. Hint: keep away from Velcro.

Great vest - Conspicuity, Comfort & Air Flow
Love this vest - just what I was looking for. Fits great over my riding jacket, excellent air flow and I appreciate the added visibility it provides. Not a lot of miles on it, but so far so good - appears to be made well and I expect it to last many years. Packs small and the storage bad was a nice plus.

Simple and high quality. Exactly what you would expect from this brand. Doesn't feel cheap or scratchy like a lot of reflective vests. I would recommend going one size up from your jacket size if you want to be able to get it on and off quickly over your jacket. My only complaint is that it does not have an exterior pocket (for ID cards or other items you might need to access quickly).

I was sick of my work vests not fitting right and flapping in the breeze. This vest solved my issues. Sizing suggestions were spot on and it works well with my jacket. Plenty of air flow and the vest stays put while going down the road.

Good Quality Vest!
I bought this vest to use when commuting onto a military base and it serves that purpose well. No issues! I picked this one because I have bought RevIt! items before and always found them to be of high quality with nice styling. This vest was a size Large and I bought it for wear over a RevIt! GT-R leather jacket in size 56. It fits perfectly over the jacket and I don't even notice it, and it stays close to the jacket without any flapping. I also recently purchased the RevIt! GT-R Air for summer riding (size Large, and not reviewed yet) and it fits that jacket very well also. I like that the SeeSoft Back Protector in size 05 fits both my jackets so I saved some cash there. With those two jackets and my vest I am set for anything. I am 5'8", 188 lbs, 42" chest, 35" waist, 32-33" dress shirt sleeves, for those considering either jacket. The vest is sturdy and looks like it will hold up well for quite some time.
