REV'IT! Concorde Jacket
Awesome jacket for 3 season riding!
I bought the navy blue jacket in medium from Revzilla, and it fits me perfectly. I’m 5 10, 170 lbs. It feels extremely durable, and the materials used are of high quality. I’ve tried it on with the liner, and it’s very warm – so warm that I’d only use it below 10 degrees Celsius. With the lining off, it makes for a perfect spring or fall riding jacket and was 100% rain proof in a downpour last week. The only issue with the jacket is the venting. When you’re not riding, it can get pretty warm quickly, not always a bad thing as long as it’s chilly outside.
Overall, I’d highly recommend this product!

Great Looking 3/4 Jacket with functional features.
To be honest, I bought this jacket based on the looks but it turned out it is better than I thought.
I am 5'11 154 lbs and I ordered L. It fits just right, no too roomy yet not too tight. From a standpoint of a fashion brand I would say it's a slim fit. The sleeves are just about the right length.The armpit opending being too small whch other review has mentioned does not apply to me. I wear it more often off bike than on bike because I love the style so much and you hardly can tell this is a motorcycle jacket, even with all armors on.
The fabric seems strong enogh to last in a long period of time but since I got this last winter so it's too early to say. The jacket kept me warm all around when riding in around 40-50F. And it actually felt colder because it is much more humid in Taiwan than in US. I did ride with the hood on and the botton-up mouth piece just queezed between my helmet and chest, not a big problem to me. However, I have not ridden in rain in this jacket so can't say anything about the waterproof function.
There is only only one thing that I think it may cause a problem: the ends of the waist adjustment cord are metal and they swing around with wind while riding. Not sure if they will damage my tank paint but is something to look out for. So far I have not had this problem.
To sum up, I love this jacket and it has become my go-to jacket in winter when I'm out. I might try taking the thermal lining out and wear it this spring. BTW, I order the blue one and the texture feels superb.

i <3 it
i may be a bit biased because almost all of my riding gear is Rev'It... but this jacket is by far the best I've ever owned.
i love the way it looks and the way it feels. since i got it for xmas i've worn it as my winter coat off the bike because i love it so much. it fits perfectly, is incredibly warm, and imho looks f*cking great.
yes, as someone else pointed out, there are some minor design choices that are a bit silly (the hood zipper being exposed, etc), but i think they are very minor.
considering every other similar riding jacket i've tried has either fit terribly, looked silly, or both... this is a win for sure.
(also, be advised that Rev'It's previously wacky sizing is now much more realistic... My previous Rev'It winter jacket was an XXL... and this one is an L which is much more in line with what I normally wear, being 6'1" / 170lbs)

Close but, some really, really, stupid stuff…
First off: Revzilla, awesome company with the best customer service of any business in any field I deal with. God how I wish you would take over my cable, or phone company…
But the jacket:
Generally a great looking jacket….But….
1.The arm opening is so small/high that I can't use the liner because it cuts right under the armpits (WTF).
2. When the hood is removed (which will be almost always if you're actually going to ride) the bottom half of the zipper is exposed and kind of a stupid looking ring around your neck (WTF).
3. And worst of all , the flap and snap that goes from the jacket to the hood has nothing to connect to with the hood removed( I can't wait to hear that stupid thing constantly pinging off my helmet). Again, WTF. If they added a snap on the collar or better still had the flap go the other way as part of the hood, problem solved.
But it seems the designers at Rev'it really are, unfortunately, poser fashionista's. Otherwise this stuff would be instantly obvious.
I didn't return it because I rarely use the factory liner in my jackets because they are bulkier than the technical layers I own. And it literally is the only thing like it out there now (waterproof, armor, light weight, 3/4 length, stylish, and not Black). I have a Belstaff that is magnificent but it is much heavier/stiffer so I bought this as something more casual and lighter. Also the collar is permanently kinked and doesn't stand up around your neck like it should. lastly, when you put your arms through the sleeves 2 inches of the permanent liner rolls out beyond the cuff and then you have to do some stupid dance and tuck it back up the sleeves(jesus H. why isn't this f-n sown in place) . all my complaints are about things that
wouldn't cost Rev'it one thin dime to do right. definitely minor league, Rev'it.…minor league.

Great Jacket, Tons of Features, Minor Issues
The REV'It Concord jacket has been great so far. With the liner in the jacket has been plenty warm enough in 30F weather. The included armor in the elbows and shoulders fits well enough, though can move around a bit.
As for styling I have worn the Jacket around town as my main jacket, getting a lot of compliments. You would never know this was a motorcycle jacket. The armor stays well concealed without a lot of weird outlines.
The one difficulty encountered so far has been the main zipper. It has a double zipper and you need to get the pin seated through 2 pull tabs before zipping up. It takes a little fiddling to get it to zip up correctly 100% of the time.
Overall I have been greatly impressed with the jacket styling and quality through the first 30 days.

This jacket is indeed waterproof, as advertised. I commute in the foothills of VA, where it rains quite a bit; I've ridden in heavy rain twice in the last month, and it kept me dry both times. It also dried off overnight, whereas a lot of other jackets I've had have taken 2 or 3 days to dry out.
The removable liner is also quite warm. It was 19 degrees on my way to work the other morning and my torso and arms were quite comfortable. It gets a little warm when it's more than 50 degrees out, but the liner does come out. The bomber-style cuffs in the picture are also part of the liner; I wear leather gauntlets, and they fit in between the jacket cuff and the liner.
The hood is also removable. Off the bike, especially on the cold and rainy days, the hood is very convenient. The mouth guard flaps keep the cold off of your lower face. I haven't worn the hood in a downpour yet, but in a drizzle, it didn't let any water through. On the bike, you'll want to detach the hood, since the flaps blow in the wind and hit your helmet.
Overall, this is a really great jacket. It is really worth every penny.
