Great jacket but Euro sizing
**VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW SIZING:
I measured myself and found that revit suggests a XXL. I'm 6'0 and 195lbs and usually fit well in a large. However, the recommended size chart was accurate for me.

I've only had this jacket for about 2 weeks, but I think it's a great purchase. I ride to commute and day trips on weekends. I live along the California coast so the temp here is usually moderate (50-60 F on average).

I've ridden at night where it's 40 F degrees and I was warm, and I've also ridden in near 80 F degrees and was cool in motion with the vents open. I sprayed the jacket with a hose and it seems waterproof. I haven't battle tested the jacket yet (and I hope not to), but the quality of the jacket is apparent when I examine it. All round jacket that works for me and meets the all-season criteria.

I only have one real complaint about the jacket, and that was that it lacked any internal pockets. It's not a major issue, but I dinged them a point for that. I also took off a mark for durability because it's too soon to tell how well the jacket will stand the test of time, though it does seem very well made.

The only winter jacket for me!
I'll start by saying I'm loyal to REV'IT! jackets because they feel tailer-made for my body type (I've tried A LOT of jackets!). The Tarmac Air Textile is my favorite jacket on the planet for mild to warm weather riding.

Excalibur:
- I'm 6'4" and slim and I purchased an XL. It fits just right. REV'IT! jackets have a lot of adjustability too.
- This jacket is well insulated and warm. Given I have a high tolerance to cold, this thing paired with a hoodie makes me uncomfortably hot at slow to moderate speeds (hoodies also make it bulky). I haven't used it in less than 32 degree weather but even that was not an issue.
- The price point is ridiculous. I would have paid more (disregard that comment RevZilla team haha). Make sure you factor in a Seesoft insert since the foam backing it ships with is about as useful as cardboard (they're made with the understanding you will get the Seesoft insert made for it)
- Try it out. RZ has a no risk return policy so you have nothing to lose.

Hope that's helpful.

Pictures of this jacket don't do it justice.
The quality of this REV'it jacket is superb. I tested the jacket on a 300 mile day on a naked bike when the temperature range was between 30 degrees in the morning to 65 in the afternoon with slight wind.
I would give this jacket 5 stars except for 2 small items.
I just had a tee shirt under the waterproof liner and the thermal liner and I was starting to get cold in 30 degree weather. I needed another long sleeve layer. The thermal liner could be a little thicker but I suppose that would make the jacket too bulky.
I like the cuffs on the liners, they are nice and snug around your wrist.
For warm weather I wish this jacket had a short zipper opening under each arm pit for ventilation.
I know it is very hard to have an all year round jacket. I would say this jacket works well from 25 to 90 degrees.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Rev"t product.

Love at first sight.
My first need in my first motorcycle jacket was quality. Rev'it nails it. Second was usability. Living in coastal San Diego I enjoy some of the best climate anywhere in the world. I can use this jacket on cold rainy days like today and warm sunny days (like 2 days ago). I don't have to deal with extremes very often and Excal lets me cope with whatever mother nature is bringing my way. I also needed visibility. The silver not only looks gorgeous (I fell in love with the photo) but is great in the dark. Finally I didn't want my choice of jacket to pigeon hole me. The jacket has a great sporting cut and a utilitarian approach. It looks and feels just as at home on the trails and in the mountain twistys as it does on the freeway commute and 'round town run abouts. I feel like I could walk into anybody's bar if that makes sense.

I was nervous about NOT trying the jacket on in store before I bought. Nobody in San Diego stocks Rev'it. I figured with RZ's return and exchange policies I would roll the dice on what I believe to be the best textile jacket for me on the market. After watching the RZ breakdown video and reviewing the size chart it appeared to me that Buzzsaw was wearing a coat one size small. He should've been, by the size chart, wearing an XL-2X with a 44" chest. He is wearing a L. He and I are similar in size. I'm a 45" chest, 36" waist at 215 6'. My build is a bit thicker through the chest and arms and a bit less in the belly than his. I figured I'd get an XL, as he fit into a L and could always exchange up or down depending on fit. Not needed. The XL is a dream fit. With both liners in it is a bit restrictive but not bad...almost feels like wearing a full sleeve wetsuit. With the liners out the XL is PERFECT for me. It feels light and even, the armor fits perfectly, I can move around in the saddle comfortably, and the collar couldn't be better. The jacket has the adjustability in the wrists, arms and waist there is no flapping at all either. Love it. If I lived in a colder wetter place, I'd have wanted the 2x to more comfortably fit both liners. As it is, I'm wearing a full size smaller than their size chart indicates I should wear and am exceptionally comfortable and I don't look like I'm stretching the thing out at all.

The only 'less than perfect' (which is still pretty good if you ask me) detail of this jacket comes from, you guessed it, ventilation. What do you expect though, really? It isn't a summer jacket. For me, again, in my area of the world this is a 340 day coat. Those 25 other days will be spent in the cage under the AC. For my normal conditions the arm and chest vents on this Excal are great. I've been comfortable in all weather so far. The hottest I had was last week when I got to about 80-82 in the afternoon. Sitting at the lights in that heat was a bit sweat inducing but once I got on my way the air moved well enough to get me dry and comfy in short order. Really, the venting isn't bad but it just isn't magical.

All said and done I am exceptionally happy with the Excalibur. I don't see how anyone would be unhappy with the product. I can't call it a bargain as there are other jackets out there for less but all things considered (usability, aesthetic, comfort etc) this jacket definitely delivers value for money. I was glad to spend it and would do it again.

Awesome buy
I am 32, 6'0", 200 lbs, and 44" chest (with a little of that weight in my stomach) but mostly an athletic build to me. I originally got the L thinking it would fit well, but it was a bit too small. It was tight in the chest and upper arms. Refunding was a breeze, and I got the XL which fits me perfectly. It's not too loose without any liners, and it's only slightly snug if you have the water proof && thermal inserts in, but it's not too tight by any means.

There is awesome airflow in the arms and chest, good pockets including the inside chest. I have not ridden in really hot days like 90+ yet since i'm in Seattle, so i don't know how it does in that heat. But anything in the 80's feels great.

I got the black one and think it looks great. It's not a race jacket, but it is more of a sport fit. So it fits very well and is pretty comfortable.

Great Jacket, already worth it
Already took a spill on some grass, going about 15 mph. no tears or stain, dirt on the left side washed off easily with a hose. im not a large guy, but it's a little tight in the chest with all the layers, not sure how thatll feel in the winter, but in the summer with just the outer layer im feeling pretty good.

btw, no injuries from the fall that was covered by jacket area. everyone remember, gear keeps you safe, great gear keeps you alive. this is great gear.

This jacket is perfect!!!!
I am a thin man with long arms, I like the jacket body fit, I always had problems with jackets. If I have tight fitting then I fall short sleeves and backwards. This jacket is perfect looks like, made to measure . It's also really cute. Comfortable, lightweight and super soft, does not have that rigidity of the whole motorcycle jacket . The materials are of high quality. Being a bad guy, considering what has been said, has two small cons, it is expected that this quality jacket bring a protection for the back included. And a detail to improve the holders of the interiors are very near the end of the sleeve and poke. That said I am more than satisfied with the purchase. I've bought several things in Revzilla and take this opportunity to highlight that it is a pleasure to buy here, excellent service, customer care, accurate description of the products and shipments fast. Best regards from Argentina !!

Good fit & plenty of features
I'm a difficult fit, with a 30" waist and 42" chest, so it took a lot of tries to find a 4-season jacket with good protection that also looks sharp on me. You can cinch down the waist on many jackets, but risk having a bulge in the back above it. The Excalibur fits well, with ample adjustments, and with the liners out it ventilates well too. The only thing I'd change is the zippers: they zip on the opposite side from what you'd expect, and the tab on the main one is inexplicably small. Overall, it's a great jacket for the money.

well made
I live in Texas where it gets very hot in the summer. This is a 3 to 3 1/2 season jacket.Too hot for a summer ride. Works great in the fall and winter. No complaints so far. Very happy with this jacket. Will buy more products from Rev It and Revzilla

I was in the market for a 3-4 season jacket and, based upon many reviews and research, this jacket "fits the bill" nicely with a reasonable price point for the many features the jacket has. The fit and finish work very well for different styles of riding (it looks good on a cruiser or a sport bike) and as it is a "tour" cut, it's fit is a bit looser from the race cut jackets I have used in the past. A nice change.

farley j on Sep 16, 2013
A versatile seasonal coat that I can stretch into all year service in my part of Southern California. The silver is gorgeous. The cut and style are just how I like it: not overly aggressive and not boring generic, but subdued and highly functional with a hint of military style utilitarianism. Bruce Lee would argue that the 'best' style is not to have one...Excalibur does that for me and it still looks great on and off the bike. I'm pleased.

My boyfriend is 5'7'' about 175 lbs and has wide shoulder shoulders and large biceps. I don't know his chest measurement. Most of his clothes are medium. What size do you think would fit him best? If I ask too many questions to him I'll give away the surprise. :)
A shopper on Oct 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi. I'm 5'10" about 155 lbs and somewhat thin. My chest measurement is 37 inches. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly but with both the liners it's a little bit tight. Just a little tho. My biceps are not too big but the jacket is quite roomy on that area and has adjustable straps for the biceps. The length of the jacket (from the neck to the waist) is somewhat short. So trying to give my best recommendation I would say at least a medium. If he has very wide shoulders and likes his motorcycle equipment not too tight, probably the large is the best option. According to the size chart it's for 5'7" in height to 6'1". I hope this helps! Worst case scenario Revzilla exchanges for free. I'd get the medium or large depending on how tight he likes his motorcycle equipment. Also, kudos to you for giving this to your boyfriend!
I'm getting ready to place an order for the EXCALIBUR jacket. My other Rev'it jacket is the Tarmac Air Textile size MEDIUM. It fits perfect. What size should I order the EXCALIBUR in?
Bruce M on Nov 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Excalibur jacket is the only jacket from Rev'It that I own so maybe my input is not the best. However, I am roughly 5'11" tall and weigh 185 lbs and I own a large Excalibur jacket which fits me perfectly.

I've tried on a few other Rev'It jackets at my local store and for every jacket I tried on, large was the best fit for me. So if the medium Tarmac Air fits your perfectly then I would stick with medium for the Excalibur. Also, its hard to go wrong with RevZilla's return policy.

As a side note, I know that (from my experience with the jacket, and with two pairs of Rev'It gloves that I own as well as many reviews of Rev'It gear I've read) Rev'It gear generally tends to run on the slim side. So depending on how "perfect" your Tarmac Air fits, you might want to go up or down a size. I would still recommend you go with the medium Excalibur jacket, however this is something to keep in mind.

Hopefully this is helpful.
ƒ?s this washable in washing machine? in cold water?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The REV'IT! Excalibur Jacket's care instructions are as followed:

* Remove the protectors before cleaning. Hand wash at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. Rinse thoroughly and wring carefully. Do not iron/ No beach/ No dryer/ Do not dry clean.
Would you purchase this jacket for the summer? I live in S. Cali and it will get in the high 80's to mid 90's where I usually ride to.
alberto g on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm a Midwest rider. It gets 80s once in a while. While moving, airflow thru the extra vents on sleeve and chest work great. Its better to not have a backpack, which limits the rear vent flow. But when standing still, it can get hot pretty fast. I'm usually not sweating bullets, but that depends on rider and humidity. In my head, this isn't a summer type jacket. Its much more for Midwest climate of cooler days, but versatility for heat once in a while.
I read one reviewer who said there were no internal pockets, but it says there is one in the product description. Does it have a pocket on the inside, not in the liner but in the jacket itself, for a wallet and such?
Anthony M on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Enter Hi Anthony: Yes, the jacket has a pocket on the left side, big enough to put a giant cell phone with a Velcro closure. With waterproof layer placed it is difficult to access, but just a little zipper up and ready. Coat layer also has a grade with their respective zipper pocket. Hope it has been helpful. Best regards!! answer to this question.
I'm looking at either the outback jacket by revit or the excalibur. I like the look of the excalibur better. My question is whether or not the water proof layer can be worn separate out of the excalibur like the liner in the outback can? thanks! Also, if I wanted to purchase the enterprise pants but they are out of stock is there any way to get a rain check on the 15% off deal?
Levi S on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, water proof layer can be worn separate out of the excalibur. I love my jacket!
Hi! Im a 5,4" guy and have a 37,5 Inch chest, don´t now if I should go for the S or the M size. Could you give me some advice on which one to get? Best regards! Alex.
A shopper on Sep 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Alex,
I would go with the medium. The jacket is awesome but I found it to run a bit smaller than I expected. The Velcro adjustments around the waist and the cinch straps around the biceps allow you to tighten it up no problem. Also if you are going to wear it in the cold and rain the 2 liners it comes with will take up any extra space you have! Hope this helps.
What Revit pants would best go with this jacket and zips to it? 3 season
Daniel L on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about revit but I use mine with the AGV sport willow pant and it works well. I had the pant before I got the jacket and was stoked that they mated up perfectly. They're great riding pants and an amazing value and they look like they belong with the excalibur jacket...great jacket by the way.
How well does this jacket do temperatures 20-30 °F? Warm enough?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a multi-season jacket and, in my opinion, 20-30 °F seems like it calls for something dedicated for winter. I was just out in 50 °F the jacket performed well. This is a tight fitting jacket and I find it difficult to wear too many layers. If I got caught in some lower temps once and a while I think it would be ok, however, if I knew I was going out in 20-30 °F consistently, I would look for something more geared toward winter and not multi-season.
Im 145-150 at about 5'11"-6'0". I run on the fitter/slimmer side. Medium or large? i am worried the medium will be too short at the waist/sleeves.

BEST ANSWER: I am 5'7" and 150lbs with very long arms and the medium fits me well, it will depend on how long your torso is. I can wear this jacket with a sweater and an icon chest protector underneath, with all the liners in. Might be a good idea to measure your torso and check it against their sizing chart.

At first glance, the REV'IT! Excalibur Jacket is really a three and a half season coat. It's going to perform really, really well in that fall and spring range. It'll take you deep into the cold weather riding season with a waterproof, breathable, removable liner as well as a thermal, removable liner, but there are a few vents on it. And being that it's not as ventilated as some of the other products in REV'IT line like the Outback or the Sand 2, I'm going to give it that three and a half season mark, meaning, depending on your temperature tolerance, there might be cutoff point somewhere in the summer where it just doesn't flow enough air. So keep that in mind.

So past that, the REVIT Excalibur has a tour fit, with adjustments on the arms. You also have adjustments along the waist. It's going to be a rock solid fit. There are really no surprises with the Excalibur from REV'IT.

Moving into the protection side of things, you can also see that there's a lot going on here. REV'IT's using a 600d poly in the main construction, which isn't crunchy. It's not going to be, but it's also not soft. You know that there's a good level of protection here. Then we're using a PWR Shell Rib in the abrasion-resistant areas that are going to be impact-prone like the shoulders and elbows. It's also using the CE-rated Knox Flexiform Armor on the shoulders as well as the elbows.

Now, a little bit of a note about the back protection, because we're making a change in 2013 with REV'IT. All of these jackets are going to come with a temper foam pad that's replaceable. In years past, there was a Knox protector. We've also had the SAS-TEC. REV'IT's now doing a new CE Level 2, Seesoft RV back insert that actually is size-specific. So if you want to upgrade the back protection here on the Excalibur, what you're going to want to do is look at the size chart, the size of the jacket that you're purchasing, and then buy the back protector that's the appropriate size for the pocket. And if you have the jacket first, it's really easy because it'll be labeled on the pocket.

Keep in mind too, a note on sizing, depending on what size you wear and depending on any of your concerns, over 39 bucks, we ship for free, exchange for free, no restock fees if you need to send it back to us.

Now, moving into the nuances  of the Excalibur motorcycle jacket, and the nuances is what REV'IT typically does so well. If you want better venting, remember, you're going to go to that Outback. You're going up to something like that Sand 2. But looking at some of the features, there are a lot of shared features here that are those creature comforts. REV'IT uses high quality zippers, high quality snaps. We see YKK-rated zippers, the Fiocchi snaps, which are spring loaded. They're not going to wear out over time.

We talked about the ventilation, and you are going to have vents over the chest and a sleeve vent, which is a nice touch. And for those of you, depending on your riding position, I ride a lot of upright bikes. I'm a Multistrada guy right now on a Ducati. I like these vents. They tend to flow a good amount of air up the sleeve.

You also have a nice covered eyelid adjuster for your bicep, which is a nice touch. And then you also have the ability to ratchet in some of the flappage that, depending on the circumference of your forearm, you can now strap that armor down tight and make sure it stays in the right place.

I mentioned YKK Zippers, moving into the collar, spring-loaded snap that goes into a five-way adjustable collar. I always joke. It's the Ron Popeil collar. You set and forget it. So you put it for the right circumference for your neck, and then you leave it, and it's going to stay put. Tricot Lining, which is a nice a micro-fleece at the collar that's also wicking. And then you have a nice roll at the top, which is going to keep it from chafing.

Other features you might not be keying in on, 3M Scotchlite on an angle that create a good . . . It's a good level of function of reflectivity, but it's styled really nicely. And then we also have hand-warmer pockets that do have a zipper.

A few different color waves available, this is a silver, black, red. There's also a full black version. You can see the adjustment under the sleeve. And if you come in here tightly, you can see the tucked away zipper with a hand-warmer pocket and also has snap there to keep it in place.

Now, this is a nuance that through the product pictures, you might not decipher. The Excalibur from REVIT has what I call a passive vent. So it's going to allow some of the air that's coming in through the inside or through the front to circulate around your body, and it's going to get forced air out through this back vent. Again, it's a low profile area. It creates some passive ventilation, but it's not going to be as effective as something like a direct back vent. And that's, again, why I've given it that three and a half season rating versus a full four season rating here where the summertime would be no match for it if it had some bigger vents. But, again, that's all a style thing, and that's your preference. There's a lot of folks out there that are riding really when it gets just too sticky warm in the summer, they might have a mesh jacket, or they might just stop riding.

You know a note on further seasonality and some of the other lines, if you're looking to go three season warm weather, there's always the Levante in the REV'IT mix, which is really a similar multi-season jacket that's going to have more of a mesh construction that's not going to perform in the winter. So keep that in mind.

And if we break this guy down, you're going to see there's an outer shell, mesh-lined on the interior. And then what you can also see is we have it zipped in on the right side that this is going to be my Hydratex waterproof, breathable layer, which is completely removable. And it is finished. You can always tell when they hide that zipper that it's meant. It has nice style to it. It can be worn as a destination layer.

And as we come down the inside of the front and open up further, you're going to see our quilted thermal liner that is a full-sleeve liner. And that's really how your able to get that three and a half season cold weather functionality and how you're going to good coverage if you go into the winter months. It's really what I'm considering a multi-season sport and sport-touring coat by the style because it is waist length. And remember, something like that Outback or Sand are going to be slightly longer than the waist. They're going to give you a little bit more coverage if you want to delve into that longer distance, more aggressive or dual-sport touring range.

Also notice that at the collar you have that fleece-line collar at every step here on the thermal, not so on the Hydratex. But then here in the main construction collar that's going to get the most contact with your neck, it's not going to chafe you.
