REVIT Excalibur Jacket

The REVIT Excalibur jacket is a great choice for any rider looking for a versatile, four-season performance piece. It features a removable thermal liner as well as a removable waterproof membrane, which provide significant insulation from the elements, and also can be removed and worn together as a separate jacket. When both the thermal liner and waterproof membrane liner are removed, the jacket offers the excellent ventilation of a summer jacket. Additionally, those who regularly ride in hot weather can upgrade the jacket with a Challenger cooling vest insert, which connects with the same zippers used to secure the waterproof membrane. Although it has the clean lines of a seemingly simple design, the Excalibur is a capable performer.

REV'IT! Excalibur Jacket 4.7 5 31 31
Runs small Ordered an XL per the size chart and had to return for a 2XL. I have never worn a 2XL in anything. XL would have been OK without the thermal liner, with all liners it was too tight.. 3 season commuter jacket. Wear it daily except for dead of winter and full summer heat. The material and cut give it a lightweight feel. It really needs an I-pod pocket or map pocket. No other complaints.. November 10, 2015
Fantastic, really nothing bad to say yet! Does almost everything well! I have not used it in the summer yet but I really don't expect it to perform really well in the dead of summer, I plan to get the cooling vest for that. The rain liner does a real good job of blocking wind. With the rain and thermal liner, you can really custom "line" the jacket so you can adjust to weather conditions. November 8, 2015
Great jacket! Awesome product! The shell alone is a bit toasty for late summer, otherwise a great value! September 7, 2015
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. July 28, 2015
Quality materials, great fit With all the liners in, this jacket is virtually air tight so no cold air gets in on chilly morning rides. I'm 6' and 155 lbs and the medium fit perfectly. The black model looks great and is very comfortable. The zippers are high quality but zip up on the opposite side from what Americans are used to but I got used to it quickly. Other than that I couldn't be happier. May 20, 2015
Excellent jacket! I have read the reviews on this jacket and many say it fits smaller. I think it fits just right. I ordered the medium the first time because of the reviews, but returned it and ordered the small. It fits perfectly and the sleeve length is good. Still more than long enough and no air goes up! The material is above standard and lets you move around without feeling all stiff like with cheaper materials. Get this jacket!! April 15, 2015
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 !! April 1, 2015
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. March 4, 2015

Ryan T: 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. Sep 11, 2013

A shopper asked: 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. :) Oct 24, 2014

Jesus Adrian P: 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! Oct 24, 2014
Jason J: I'm about 5' 8 and, when I bought my jacket, i was at around 175. I have a short torso and long arms, however and went with a Large. It fit like a glove once I adjusted all the straps and snaps. I've lost about 20 lbs since I bought the jacket and so it feels a little loose now than when I bought it. But still adjusted properly. Most of my shirts are still a medium.

I suggest getting the large.

Eric B: 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.

Trevor B: I would definitely get a medium then, I have the same size and it fits snug, but in a good way. Plenty of adjustment around the waist and arms, the chest is really the most snug thanks to the layers (which do a great job of keeping you warm!) but I would say it fits just right, very comfortable and hands down worth it.

Fred A: 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.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nicholas A: 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.

Peter W: It will work fine. I just went for a ride yesterday in 45 degrees, wearing an under armour thermal shirt, cotton shirt, and this jacket (without either liner) and I was fine. I do have a windshield though. Without the windshield I would've had to add the liner. I believe this jacket with one or both liners in will work just fine in 20-30 degrees, and this is coming from someone who tends to get cold easily. I highly recommend this jacket. Nov 23, 2015

farley j: 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.

Eric B: I haven't ridden in the rain for any extended periods with this jacket, just short 30 min or so rides. It is not 100% waterproof without the inner lining, some water leaks in through the sleeve vents. Besides this, I stay almost completely dry with this jacket. Mar 5, 2015

Geoffrey H: I'm at the opposite end of the size chart, 5'5" and 135 lbs. I've had Rev'it gear before and it tended to run small as it was cut for Europeans. I've been told they are now cutting for larger Americans and I agree, the pants I bought in Medium short are slightly large. I would say look at the size chart and they are pretty accurate. I swapped out this jacket for a Spectrum as I wanted the longer jacket for winter riding. Oct 27, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm shopping for a motorcycle/sport-cut jacket for casual wear. I don't ride, but I do like the way these jackets fit. I've had a Dainese jacket for years and managed to lose it. I'm comparing now with the Dainese Laguna Seca... I'm 5'6", about a 40in chest, working on 41. The Dainese in 50 with its liners in fit pretty snugly, and, if I add in more layers for more warmth, I think it'd be a bit too snug. So I was looking at a 52 in that.

Looks like I'd be a L jacket here. Sound about right?

My question, in addition to fitment judgements from that^: Is the armor removable? The shoulder armor and especially the elbow armor. I wouldn't be needing it.

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.
