REV'IT! Cyclone H2O Rain Jacket
Initial impression suggests this is a great product
I purchased this product to use in case I'm caught in rain while out on any local or distance touring on my Ducati Monster. What attracted me to this product was it's hi-viz option and very packable size with ability to easily fit into my tail bag which I can confirm it does very nicely; this packs into a nice little sack and is easily stowed.
The jacket fits true to size for wearing over my Revit riding jacket.
I've yet to use it in the rain, but when I do will update this review.

Nice affordable rain jacket
I was replacing a jacket from a suit I bought years ago (company no longer in business) and hardly used it, I ripped a hole in the underarm and down the side from my arm/shoulder getting stuck when I was putting it on one time but getting stuck on shoulder armor happened a lot with that rain jacket. This jacket slides on really smooth and is much lighter than the other rain gear I had. Takes up a lot less room too. I was concerned with the size of the jacket because it was much smaller than I was used to, but that seems like a good thing, and whatever they line the inside with seems to help get it on easily. I have to wait to see how long it stays that way.
The fit is more sport than touring I would say. It wouldn't cover a 3/4 length jacket but is fine for my sportbike jacket. In the winter with my heated gear and 3/4 jacket, the jacket below the waist will get wet. It's waist length but has the collar to keep the rain out. Hi Viz is nice and bright and comes with a handy matching pouch, hopefully it won't fade much over time.
When I have to replace my rain pants (small rip in the butt from that sticky tarp-like material) I will take a look at other RevIt rain gear.

Quality issues keep this from being a winner
Would love to love this coat but unfortunately from the very first use the velcro started ripping off the coat along the front zipper. Good news is it can be sewn back on and the coat keeps water out very well. It's light, compact, stows in the little baggy. Everything else is good but that cheap elastic. Reflective material is also not that flexible. It cracks a little when folded or stowed in the bag. Hasn't come off yet though.

Works for my purpose
I got recommended this by a youtuber. I bought this to block wind while wearing my alpinestars leather gp plus perf jacket.
Fit was good. I called revzilla just to be sure. I gave the guys there the size of my leather jacket and they recommended the XL. Fits perfect. I bought the HIVIZ yellow and i get compliments on it at the office.
As thin as this thing is no air gets through period. I wear a normal long sleeve shirt with my leather then this on top. I also wear gauntlet gloves so my arms and are sealed from the wind. There are also draw strings in the waist. In low 40's ive been fine.
I have had to ride when it was foggy and misting and i got no water on me at all.
It always rides in my backpack and i dont leave without it :)

Un-cleanable in hi-vis yellow
Fits true to size over Revitt jacket. Waterproof and semi-breathable. Easily stains, permanently. Would recommend in black.

Good Rain Gear
I got the high vis color which is great for rainy gloomy days on the highway to be seen. I wore my regular jacket underneath so the fit was a bit snug, but overall kept me dry.

Worked great as rain gear and windbreaker when a little chilly !
Doesn't take up much room so you can always have it with you packs right into is own bag and has just enough reflectors , i like the black one !

Great Rain Jacket
I recently purchased the Cyclone H2O Rain Jacket for a touring trip in Arkansas. I only had to wear the jacket once during the trip but when I needed it, it worked perfectly. We had torrential rain for about 30 minutes. When it started we were able to get under an overpass, quickly don our rain gear, and continue on our way. Once the rain stopped and we got off the bikes for fuel, it was a simply matter to fold the jacket, put it back in the stuff sack, and put it back in the saddlebags.
