REV'IT! Defender GTX Gore-Tex Jacket

Make it safer. Make it lighter. Make it stronger. The fifth generation of adventure jackets since the groundbreaking original Cayenne jacket. The Defender GTX sets a new standard in apparel for the adventure and serious touring rider. Every stitch, reinforced. Fabrics which are both lighter and stronger. A new DWR coating prevents water from soaking the outer layer, while the removable GORE-TEX Performance Shell removable membrane ensures the highest level of waterproofing and breathability, guaranteed. Superfabric ceramic panels and SAS-TEC armor protect, while huge vents, large pockets, glove friendly pull-tabs, and a great Exkin Air thermal liner complete the package. Every aspect of the Defender GTX was designed for easier use, and more abuse than the competition, period. This jacket forms a recommended combination with the DEFENDER GTX Pants.

REV'IT! Defender GTX Jacket 4.8 5 38 38
Nicely designed, but... The sizing is way off. I bought a medium, based on the size charts, but it was too big. Especially in the arms! The elbow armour can be rotated all the way around my arm with no effort! It is just floating in there. Also, the size of some of the fabric panels is not the same on both sides of the jacket. I'm not sure how Rev'it messed that up. The fabric is very soft. March 10, 2014
Rev-It. Very Good, Though not as good as previous models... The Rev-it Defender GTX Jacket is a very good jacket. Unfortunately it is quite obviously not as well featured nor quite as well built as its predecessor the Cayenne Pro (which I have owned and ridden in for years). Generally, I am a huge fan of Rev-it products. That said, I find it very disappointing that cost cutting and apparently increased profit margin for Rev-It has resulted in a less desirable product for the consumer. Details on this jacket leave me very concerned about the long term durability and functionality of the jacket. Specifically, the reflective materials on the jacket are very thin and flimsy (screen printed) compared to previous models that offered thick 3M materials HF welded or bonded to the jacket. Additionally, the Cayenne Pro featured rubberized zippers that look and perform very well. These have been replaced with regular zippers on the Defender. I am involved in the production of performance athletic sporting goods. The cost for the old higher quality reflective features is nominal. The durability of the Cayenne Pro reflective details is also superior. I fear the Defender reflective materials will not stand up well to washing. They certainly look cheap / too budget for a fairly expensive jacket. I recently purchased (and returned) a Rev-It Poseidon Jacket. The return was based on fit (arms too tight) and a very flimsy main zipper. This top of the line jacket also featured questionable quality reflective details. No where near the quality of those found on the Cayenne Pro and a little too Power Rangers for my taste. Overall Rev-It make excellent products, of which the Defender clearly is. It is sad that cost cutting / margin improvement appear to be a priority over building outstanding equipment that will last. Another way to look at this, super fabrics look kind of cool, offer little advantage over other materials for the "big one" and cost a lot. I'm guessing this was part of the unfortunate cost balancing that occurred on this jacket. January 29, 2014
REV'IT! Defender GTX Jacket Coming from a REV'IT! Dragon Jacket this is definitely a step up. GORETEX liners, SAS Tec armor. The fabric is much softer than the Dragon. Switched to lower profile color scheme from black grey to black. Still very expensive than most jackets but I hope this will last a long time. My Dragon is two years old and is still in excellent condition, just decided to upgrade to this one for Christmas. The armor is a little more flexible than the Knox ones. Also upgraded the back to SAS Tec. Its a little stiff as it is cold but it does not need to be flexible at the back compared to the elbows or shoulders. Protects your spine just in case. Will see how the airflow works for summer next year. December 16, 2013
The fit is perfect My review will be based on the sizing since I read such useful reviews at Revzilla about sizing and this resulted in a successful online shopping for me :) I am 173cm tall and my chest-width is 100cm. Large size fits perfect. October 9, 2013
Any weather, anytime In "Sunny Florida" there are often times where one finds oneself in blinding sunlight, 95 degree temperatures, and torrential downpours. All at the same time. And sometimes this is a daily thing for weeks on end. So I wear my Defender GTX with the waterproof liner rolled up in the huge back pocket (I've even had groceries in there). When the weather changes (twice a day...) I'm prepared. Except for the cold. So far the thermal liner, comfy though it seems, has remained on a hanger in my closet. Without either liner, the jacket flows more air and feels much cooler than my denim jacket. And is probably more visible, though the jury is still out on the intimidation factor. Cagers seem to avoid a guy in all denim on a black and red Bonneville, but on the same bike in the black, white, and orange striped Defender GTX and matching pants I've had a few more horns honked at me as if to say "Danged kids these days!" or "You aren't speeding enough!" July 22, 2013
Love it so far. This is a great jacket and pants so far. I bought the red and grey color. I'm 6'1, 230 and bought the 2x in the pants and jacket. Both are snug on me but thats what I wanted. With the liners out they fit a little loose and with everything in they are snug. They are good down to 40F for my comfort level. Below that I put in my gerbings liners. The collar is a little too small to snap with the gerbings liner. I leave it open with out any problems. I'll ride down into the teens with my gerbings liner. It hasn't been hot yet so I can't give an upper temperature limit. I will say that I'm impressed with the air flow. I think this jacket will be good for very warm temperatures as it tunnels lots of air up the arms and around the torso. As for waterproof I've had two days so far with rain. One day was just a misty drizzle. I stayed dry. The other day was a heavy rain. My left arm got wet. I had my waterproof glove gauntlets over the outer sleeve of the jacket. Water pooled between the jacket and the gortex liner. This then ran down into my glove and then when I picked up my arm it ran inside the gortex liner. I think that I need to tighten my glove or put it on the inside against the gortex liner and I should be fine. I recommend this jacket. May 21, 2013
Excellent protection, great features. I didn't get my GTX jacket untill November, and I live in Michigan; so I have only used it 5 times now. But this has been enough to get a good idea about this product. I love the quality of this jacket, I've owned several others over the years, leather and textile and this is by far the best build quality. it has good airflow, although I only opened the vents for a few moments; it's really cold here! hopefully summer riding in this will be just as pleasant. It does keep you very warm also. I do have heated grips, and a heated liner that I can use, but I have not used the liner with this jacket. I rode 30 miles in mid 20 degree temps and was never very uncomfortable. riding at slow speeds at these temps I was actually warm. I highly recommend! March 9, 2013
Best jacket I have ever worn Saved up for a decent jacket over a long time. The Alpine Star Durban was in my local store and I like it very much. Unfortunatly it was to small. I then read about the Defender and the shop ordered one for me to try. I got the 3 XL it fits like a glove, perfect size. I am 6'1 and 250 pounds 115 Kilos. The jacket is very comfortable. I recently rode from Napier to Christgchurch in NZ. Started of in 21 C temps and sunshine. Ended up in 6C and rain. I was comfortable the entire trip and did not get wet at all. They are a little expensive but worth the expense. The protection and finsih on the jacket is fantastice, much better than other similar jackets. November 3, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
dlg management llc d: great four-season jacket, fits tight, but its nice enough to wear off bike as well. Mar 21, 2014
Donato D: Lower profile colorwise compared to Poseidon GTX and cheaper too. Dec 8, 2013
David V: Florida weather. Gotta be ready for anything. Sudden showers and temperatures in the mid 90's, both at the same time, is a daily occurrence in the summer, and it's only slightly less hot and wet the rest of the year. Taking the Gore-Tex liner out and stuffing it in the giant back pocket is a boon on hot clear days, because clear days often still have rain showers around here. Aug 14, 2013
A shopper asked: I have a 40" chest and was planning on buying the medium size. I am also planning on buying the Sas Tec back protector which will obviously take up space inside the jacket. I don't mind a snug fit and prefer a more form fitting look without being restrictive. Should I stay with the medium or size up to the large?

Same question for the pants, 32" waist and plan to buy the Sas Tec hip protectors. Should I order Pant size medium or large?

RevZilla: It is not necessary to increase the size of REV'IT! garments to accommodate the SAS-TEC protectors. You will be removing the temper-foam pads that come in the garments and replacing them with the SAS-TEC which is only marginally thicker. Here are some ideas of what you can do with the pads you remove: the back pad could be used as a (very) small yoga mat or (very) large mouse pad, and the hip pads would make excellent drink coasters for your coffee table.

A shopper asked: I live and ride for the most part in SoCal and overheating is a main concern. I want a durable jacket that ventilates well. Considering the shell only how does the breathability of the fabrics, the ventilation, and comfort range of the Defender GTX compare with the new Sand 2? Durability and warranty are also a consideration, thanks. Dec 27, 2012

SlightlyOldGuy: The Defender GTX has been the coolest non-mesh jacket I have worn. I believe it will be considerable more comfortable than the Sand jacket. The only thing I didn't like about it was having to install the waterproof liner if it rained. I wore the Defender in 105 degrees in Colorado and was only slighty hot. No other non-mesh jacket has come close to that level of comfort. Apr 2, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a rev'it sand jacket but the hydra liner leaks a bit in the arms. I would like to upgrade the liner to GORE-TEX since it just loves to rain here in the PNW. Jul 12, 2011

Stevan P: REV'IT does not sell the liner separately, however, if your liner is leaking it could be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. We suggest contacting Customer Service 888.792.9455 9am-7pm EST Monday-Friday. Jul 29, 2011
