Understated simplicity is the key feature of the REVIT Flatbush Jacket. It features a classic cut and smooth leather that will break in easily and give way to a worn-in, classic looking piece. Even though it exudes a distinctively retro look, the Flatbush is equipped with CE-rated armor by SAS-TEC and is safety stitched at critical impact areas. Whether cruising along the seaside or not on a bike at all, this jacket will quickly become a favorite that will always manage to help you look effortlessly stylish.
Weird fitting arms
I ordered the Flatbush after also considering the Rev'it Roamer for my brother (which I highly recommend). In general I'm a big fan of Rev'it products. However, I ended up being disappointed with the Flatbush for several reasons:
-The fit on the arms is not correct for me. Rev'it must have designed this jacket for men with a long arm/torso ratio. I can imagine getting a size smaller to fix the arm length issue but then I'm afraid the torso will be too short. I'm 5'11' 150lb and tested a size 48 which if anything was a size down already.
-The armor creates an ugly set of wrinkles/bulges of leather just above the pads behind your elbow. This might alleviate itself as the leather gets worn in and softens though. It also would have helped it I had longer arms.
-If you just stand with the jacket with arms relaxed, the arms hang outwards (in a strongly pre-curved way). This is good for riding but loses style points off the bike.
-I'm not a fan of the Sas-tec armor used in the Flatbush compared to the flexible Knox armor used in the Roamer and Airwave. Its too stiff and uncomfortable, especially since the leather itself is a little stiff. The shoulder pad doesn't cover the top of your shoulder enough.
-Some niggling quality control issues (pencil marks on the leather, inconsistent triple stitching)
-The tan leather although nice quality, seems quite fragile and difficult to care for (compared to a black or dark brown jacket).

Beautiful but funny fit
Just ordered this jacket from Revzilla. Super fast shipping. This is an awesome looking jacket, extremely well-made, but did not fit me well. I am 6'0", 205 lbs, pretty muscular build with broad shoulders and long arms, 43" chest. I ordered a 54 and the fit through the shoulders and chest was fine. The belly was not loose so heftier guys need not go further - it's not for you.
The "funny" part of the fit is in the arms. It's tight at the bicep. Even with the armor out there wasn't any relief. Perhaps time would have worked that out, but I wasn't willing to chance that on a $500 jacket. Again, I'm muscular but I'm not super buff with mega-arms. The length on the arms was perfect, though.
The finish of the jacket is spectacular and it has great detail. The collar was stiff but that part I'm sure would soften up with time. The pull tags on the zippers need swivels - they don't fully relax. Again, that would likely change with time but it's a simple fix to an otherwise super-looking jacket. It's a euro deal so yeah it's a left handed zipper.

Great for thinner dudes with longer arms… Actually fits.
It's pretty hard to find an mc jacket to fit those of us that are long and thin. I was absolutely blown away to discover that this jacket fits my longish arms and narrowish body. For reference, I'm 5'11" weigh about 145lbs butt naked. I wear a 36-38 US jacket which almost without fail means that sleeves are somewhere around my elbows.
I bought this jacket in a EU 46 and it fits like a glove with the armour in place, including the recommended back protector. The sleeves fit just perfectly standing up, on the bike they hike up a tad, but not too much.
Improvements I wouldn't mind seeing would be some articulation in the shoulders/ upper arms for better range of motion going into 3/4 position. I would also be happy with 1/2" more arm length… but I'm not complaining.
There are a lot of people like me out there. Manufacturers would be wise to tap into the niche of longer, thinner dudes (younger).
Thanks rev it for making a jacket that fits!

A shopper asked:I noticed a difference of color on the Dark Brown Flatbush Jacket displayed to the one featured in the video. Will the camel color also have a variation in color or is there anyway to see the camel jacket displayed on a person instead of the sample picture?
Bryan G:If you google REV'IT! Flatbush Leather Jacket, you will find a few youtube videos that show the caramel color jacket displayed on a person. It appears similar to the picture, unlike the dark brown.Apr 21, 2014
Bonnie V:Yes, the shoulder and elbow protection is removable and it's easy to do I might add. sewn in pockets for each pad open and close via a Velcro strip and there is enough space in each pocket to easily reach in and pull out the pad, but there isn't so much room that they are never in position so don't worry about that either.
Twist the throttle, Mike

Richard B:I think the combination of your geometry and the jacket won't work. It happens to have super long sleeves and a pretty tight around chest. This means that in order for you to fit the chest, you'll have to get a larger size which will have even longer sleeves. My suggestion is to go with the roamer. Its a much looser fit around the chest and the arms aren't as disproportional.
I'm 5'11'' with 38.5 inch chest and the sleeves were too long for a size 48. They're going to be even longer for you.Oct 28, 2014
Craig P:I have not owned this particular jacket for long enough to give a definitive answer, but pull-up leather will generally lighten with age -- especially around areas that undergo large amounts of motion or stress. The effect will likely be most apparent with the dark brown version of the jacket.Jun 16, 2014
