REV'IT! Excalibur Jacket
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.

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!!

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 !!

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.
- 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.

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.

Very Nice Jacket But..........
I ordered a size XL and the fit was too snug for me.
I called and spoke with a Revzilla phone representative and a return authorization.
I really like the look and cut of the Revit jacket/s but the zipper on the exterior shell of the jacket does not stay all the way up
and it creeps/travels downward.
It's disappointing because everything else about this jacket seemed of good quality with the exception of the zipper and if it were not for this I would keep it and hate to return it.
Revzilla has issued another return authorization without question and I will pick another jacket.
Thank you for the great customer service.

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.

This is my first ever motorcycle jacket, so I don't have much to compare to...
But I will say that the jacket is made with high quality material after wearing it for a few months.
shoulder and elbow protection
and doesn't come with back protection
