REV'IT! Brera Jacket
Great looking city jacket at a nice price.
I got this jacket hoping that it can pull double duty as a motorcycle jacket and an everyday cool weather jacket. I believe it has succeeded. Protection against the elements is fantastic, I've ridden in temps in the low 50s with only a t-shirt on underneath and felt fine. As of yet I have not used it in wet weather so I can't comment on the water proof ability.
I realy like the styling of the old school bomber jacket, makes me wonder why more brands don't produce anything in this classic look anymore. There is a small REV'IT logo on the right side close to the waist, its barely noticeable which is fine by me. The two bottom most buttons are coated with some sort of rubber which is nice as I am always paranoid about scratching my tank.
A few small gripes:
The back protector is quite noticeable when it is installed in the back pocket. Not a big deal to me but I could see this bothering some people.
The pull for the zipper that attaches the fur is on the non-furry side, which can make it somewhat difficult to zip it on and keep the fur out of the zipper.
I REALLY wish that it had a removable liner so I could wear it on warmer days.
All in all, a great jacket for scooting around town that will keep you warm and protected without looking like a Power Ranger.

Exactly what I wanted!
The fit was unbelievably correct it was like it was meant for me, I'm 5'9 160lbs and the medium fit me like a charm. Material wise sturdy and keeps me warm and dry, little to no airflow but the cold air outside from my 250r makes up for it. Overall my boys love it and already ordered theirs. You won't regret it, just make sure if your taller then 5'10 I recommend the large because like I said I'm 5'9 and the wrist part fits me PERFECTLY with little to no slack.

Keeps you warm
An interesting take on the bomber jacket. I bought this jacket in March, when it was still fairly cold in NY. This jacket will keep you warm. However it is not something you want to wear if it is not cold outside. It does not have any airflow. I read that it had a removable liner. It does not. The "removable liner" is the faux fur collar, it can be taken off. I always keep it off because I ride with a shemaugh (scarf). I will surely be wearing this jacket again as the weather gets colder.

I really like this jacket, I've used it in the winter more than my Dainese. It's actually less protective than what I'm used to, but the feel/look is nice & blocks wind great. I ride alot with just a long sleeve t-shirt underneath in 30-40 degrees & I'm good to go. I love the fur collar, but it doesn't stay "popped up" like other collars, so when zipping up, I always have to make sure the fur is straight up or it gets hidden underneath, and the jacket won't zip up all the way if I don't adjust the fur.
I'm wearing a black XL & I'm 6'1". It doesn't expose my back, but It's just a touch short "mentally": you know the feeling when you think its riding up. Sometimes that can be a distraction like aggressive riding (highway not streets). The Knox back protector was purchased & made the feel a little tight but def necessary. I really wish they added a small loop on the center bottom of the jacket to just hook to a belt loop on your pants. Maybe I could get that sewed on somewhere?
I'm glad I got it, & the price was right during Black Friday.

Amazing but SMALL
used this as soon as i got it but the fit is very small. i am 6 foot and only 175 lbs but this XL just barely fits. the main issue is jacket length. it is very warm. the fur looks a little odd if you are not riding but does its job well and can come off if necessary. over all very pleased.

Looks good, mostly a jacket for the sidewalk
The jacket is very nicely finished with nice details, and looks spectacular to my eye, including the muppet fur collar. The muppet fur gives it a decidedly continental bent, and it's the warmest part of the jacket - excellent at keeping your neck warm and the wind out. However, I can't say the same for the jacket overall. I took my new Brera out for a spin today - 47 degrees, wet roads, and intermittent light rain. It was barely able to keep me warm - I felt air coming in around my kidneys; so, it's more of a cool day jacket than a true winter jacket. The shell seems very thin to me - it looks like it came off the rack at Macy's, so I don't have much confidence in it doing much to protect me in the event I come off the bike. Plus, the shell absorbed water instead of repelling it, and I thought the description was that it was waterproof.
Summary: There are lots of entry level motorcycle jackets that offer stronger materials at a lower price; sadly, they lack the style. It's a nice sidewalk jacket with elbow and shoulder protectors. I'll probably wear it on days when I need to walk around the corporate campus to meetings without looking like a Power Ranger.
Fit: 174 lbs, 33 inch waist, 5'10, and I ordered a medium. For me, this results in a very fitted jacket, so take the comments in the video about "American sizing" with a grain of salt. Like most Revit stuff, it feels like it's designed for men with zero gut and a fairly slender build..

I'm very pleased with this Rev'it! Jacket. I used the sizing chart provided on the product page and my jacket fits perfectly. So far it's holding it up really well both on the bike and around town. This is definitely not something you'll be taking to the track but for the casual rider it seems like it would provided decent protection in a fall. The built in CE armor at the shoulders and elbows is a nice addition. I'll be adding the back armor to mine very soon. I do wish the liner on the inside was removable so I could stretch the jacket into the warmer seasons too. The bomber style is very cool, and I get a lot of compliments on this jacket - most people don't know it's a motorcycle jacket (which I like). The casual rider who wants protection without looking like a brightly colored alien should get this jacket!
