REV'IT! Galactic Jacket 4.9 5 16 16
Good 3 Season Jacket I've owned leathers of all kinds for racing and touring. The Galactic is a great 'combo' jacket with the protection of a good leather added to the versatility and comfort of fabric. The fit is true to size and anatomically correct for riding position. It is on the cool side when the temp gets below 50f but can accommodate lower temps with the help of an EVS F1 or Revolution 5 chest protector--you get spine and chest protection with added warmth. I am very pleased and recommend this jacket. The Gear 2 pants are a nice complement, too. October 21, 2014
Solid Jacket!!! I'm very happy with this jacket from REV'IT! I ride in the Mojave desert where the temps are regularly in the low 100's and I can tell you it flows a tone of air. Making it as comfortable as you could be on a bike. The fitment in great, I'd say it is true to size no real need to go up or down to get the right fit. The white is great for visibility and keeps the heat down too. Its heavy and with the upgraded back protector, it feels like I'd be protected if I go down. Over all this is a five star jacket and I'm happy that I chose this one. There is only one con... the sleeves are too long. I have somewhat long arms and can't imagine anyone this would fit properly. If I didn’t wear gloves it would be unconfutable and most likely cause chafing on my hand. However I wear gloves and this has never been more than an annoyance. I'm looking forward in trying to stretch it into a four season jacket this winter... It only gets down to 40 degrees most of the time. July 22, 2014
REV'IT! Galactic Jacket REV'IT! Galactic Jacket. This is a very good quality Jacket. The air flow is awesome, build quality is very good. I am 6ft 2" with 41" chest. This fits perfect. I highly recommend this product. This can be used as 3season jacket. As always Revzilla service/shipping is excellent. April 8, 2014
A solid product that will serve you well in warmer weather. Fits well, if a little snug in the shoulders. It moves a lot of air with out the liner in, the back protector (if you get the Seesoft back protector for it) does keep your back from breathing as well as it could other wise. The liner does its job and keeps out rain and wind on cooler days but you will have to layer well if you want to use it as a 3 season jacket. The jacket zips right in with the Revit Gear 2 pants. The over all build quality is really good, and in the short term is holding together no issues to speak of. I think it is worth mentioning that this zippers on the sleeves have tension on the tab so that they will stay put while your riding, a feature I really enjoy. In white it does keep the sun off you a little better however keeping it clean is also more difficult. March 18, 2014
Very safe feeling jacket The jacket fits a little snug, so if you are unsure perhaps go up a size. I have a size 54, and usually wear a size large and it works quite well, a bit tight on the the shoulders but I've been told that will loosen as the leather wears in. It looks awesome. Everyone is jealous of it when I wear it around the house trying to break it in. Goes good with the Sand 2 Pro pants I have, but unfortunately does not zip properly with them, my mistake for not looking it up before purchasing, so no fault of Rev'it. The protection is awesome in this jacket. The armor covers a lot and feels secure. I'd trust it in a crash more than my Joe Rocket textile for sure. I have no clue how the airflow is as I've yet to ride in it, but just from looking at it you can tell it's going to be pretty good. The entire front and some of the back is a sturdy mesh which should let a lot of air through. Overall I love this jacket and am glad I bought it. It also smells like a brand new car, which is probably my favorite part about owning a leather jacket. March 17, 2014
Excellent 3 season jacket I bought this jacket in 2013 and I've had the opportunity to use it on many long distance rides. I like its versatility and the ability to take out the waterproof liner if I don't need it. The liner does its job and keeps the wind and water out so you stay dry. The quality and fit of the jacket is excellent...I'm just over 5'9" with an athletic build and it fits me like a glove (with the liner). Without the liner its a comfortable (not snug) fit but far from loose. The quality of the jacket is high, but I feel like they could have done better with the zippers. The zipper tabs that you grab are small and if you have medium or larger hands you may have trouble grabbing them. Other than that, its probably the best "jack of all trades" jacket I've had (not including track). January 22, 2014
Typical Rev it Quality I really like the hybrid design: much of the protection of leather and armor stays in place. Also like the visibility of white/black: has white/black in the right places to enhance visibility and still be practical. I have fairly normal proportions at 6", 195lbs, 44" chest. The 56 is perfect in shoulders, chest and arm length, but a loose fit through abdomen even with SeeSoft back protector update. Mesh flows lots of air which you can feel even with the liner in place in cooler temperatures. Construction is top notch as I've come to expect from Rev it. Very satisfied. November 8, 2013
Rev'it is one of the BEST period. The fit is true to the size chart and if you upgrade the back protector its even more snug which I really like. once the liner is removed this jacket has very good airflow and even with the liner in its not uncomfortable. This liner in my opinion is about as good as it gets you truly don't know that your wearing it. Its very soft around the neck and wrist and flexible it moves with your body. The armor sits exactly where it should and appears to be a much better upgrade than the competitors. The construction of the jacket is simply the best when it comes to the materials they use. I would recommend this jacket. As im getting up there in years age 46 ive gone through a number of sportbikes and gear. ( and don't plan on stopping). I would say this gear Rev'it ranks the top 3 of all gear along with Alpinestars and yes Dainese in my world of sportbike riding. Its know wonder why so many MotoGP pro's wear them. Like De Puniet and V Rossi. I know gear can cost a good bit these days But protection and comfort is well worth it. October 27, 2013

REV'IT! Galactic Jacket
Already Asked: 9 Questions, 40 Answers
Sort by:
RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Lillo B: Protection of leather. Match to Ignition 2 pants. Sportier and slimmer fit than Ignition 2 jacket. Reports show good ventilation. Aug 13, 2014
Darian C: Was looking for something more abrasion resistant than a fully mesh jacket that looked like it might be tolerable in temperatures above 95 F. Am hoping this is it. Dainese Air Frazer was compelling (and cheaper) but opted for higher visibility white/black color of Rev'it Galactic. Jul 1, 2014
Jean Francis R: I have a Dainese to small and i was looking for some jacket waterproof Jun 2, 2014
Brent B: Chose a White Color to help reflect the heat and since it get's extremely hot here in texas during the summer (95+ on average) This leather Hybrid with CE protection was a no Brainer. Will see how it fits when it get's here. May 26, 2014
Joseph P: I wanted top protection with leather, but something good for warm weather riding (the mesh panels + white color option are fantastic). I don't want separate rain gear, so water-proofing was a must, and the liner is perfect (fits in my storage compartment easily).

CE shoulder and elbow was mandatory for me, as was the option for a CE level 2 back protector. I'm an adventure/sport rider, who is serious about ATGATT. Honda NC700X
May 22, 2014
B B: Protection in warm weather May 5, 2014
Sindhoor B: Excellent quality, very good air flow, Great fit and waterproof with internal liner. Apr 15, 2014
J T: looks great, flows air, water proof liner. i'm thin build and it comes a little short. if you go with the size chart, get a size bigger if you are thin built. Mar 21, 2014
Joseph B: Living in the Phoenix, Arizona area a mesh-jacket is almost a must-have, especially for the spring/summer/fall seasons when the heat will definitely be a factor. Having the leather in key impact/abrasion zones adds a little additional protection that would otherwise only be available on a full leather, or otherwise absent on a full mesh. This is a perfect blend of protection, comfort and sport-bike style. Jan 17, 2014
Silvio M: I was looking for a mulit-purpose jacket with good technical support that would be suitable for layering and 3 season wear spring thru fall. Pairing this up with pants and a rainsuit for unexpected showers really provides a layering versatility that saves money overall. Oct 19, 2013
Bryan H: Style meets practicality with this jacket. It offers leather and CE2 protection, while maintaining wear-ability in summer, rain, or shine. In Texas it should truly be a four season jacket. (more so with the cooling vest i ordered with it for the extra hot days.) Oct 10, 2013

RevZilla: The REV'IT! Galactic Jacket is compatible with the REV'IT! Gear 2 Leather Pants & REV'IT! GT2 Leather Pants. Another track pant might be available later in the year too, but as of now these are your only two options. Apr 11, 2013

A shopper asked: Does the elbow armor in the Galactic jacket extend down the forearm? Jun 29, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alexandre A: Yes it extends all the way down until about 2" above your wrist to allow full wrist /hand motion. Great jacket by the way. Fits a bit tight but that's because of the European style so it is definitely worth using the size guide and measuring your lengths. I ordered a size too small the first go around but Revzilla was quick to exchange it for me with no hassles. I was very pleased with the site and have bought numerous motorcycle parts from them as well because of their great prices. Hope this helps. Jun 30, 2014

Qaiser C: Yes is does. It runs all the way down, to about two inches from the wrist. The armor is obviously thicker at the elbow and the tapers off as it gets closer to the wrists. Jun 30, 2014

Bryan H asked: Does wearing white really make that much difference when riding in hot weather? I live in Texas, and currently wear mostly black or dark gear. Its warm/hot depending on weather, but I cant see it being much cooler/hotter depending on gear color. I'm a new rider and have never worn lighter colored gear so I was just wondering if anyone has actually really tested this or felt a real difference in their experiences.

Thanks.

Ariel G: I have found that wearing a diff color does make a diff. A huge diff? no. A small diff? yes. This specific jacket DOES NOT have good ventilation. Once you are at 35+ speeds its good but its not great. If you imagine using this traffic to get to work on hot days with stop and go traffic look elsewhere. It is hot. I live in washington with very few hot days. The hottest day I wore it in was about 88degrees. In any type of traffic i immediately got warm and then hot as i sat under my naked air cooled GS 500. Once i hit 35mph though it was fine. Texas weather however easily gets into the hundreds. I would seriously consider another perforated or ventilated leather jacket. Sep 25, 2013

Wayne D: Bryan, I may not be the best judge for your temperature question as I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I do frequently ride in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and N California. Temperatures can approach 100 deg F though. I purchased white mainly for visibility, but have found the tight mesh to provide good ventilation. Comparable to my previous Joe Rocket mesh / leather jacket. White does require more cleaning than a darker color though. First hand experience this spring, with a ~40 mph low side, I am impressed with the protection and durability of Rev'It gear. I do believe you will be happy with the Rev'It jacket, no matter the color you choose. Wayne D. Sep 25, 2013

Daivd H: Hey Bryan, It really doesn't make that much difference in the HOT Texas weather. I have a black perforated leather jacket and a white Galactic...not much difference. Where the white comes in is the visibility, think safety. It's a great jacket and I've had many compliments on it. Can't go wrong, either way. BTW, I use the Galactic as my cold weather jacket. Great for Fall, Winter and Spring. Sep 27, 2013
Reply to Daivd Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
andrew d: I would say it probably doesn't make a huge difference, but it may be that small yet crucial difference between what you find hot and unbareable.

I went with the white because I liked the look. The ventilation isn't bad, but if heat is your main concern, I would look at a fabric jacket for the summer months.

Milton S: Living in the south can get hot real fast and I honestly can't tell the difference in wearing white or black gear. I guess the trick is to keep moving and getting a helmet that has great air flow. white seems to be harder to keep clean. good luck my friend.

Michael M: Hey Bryan. Black clothing does like to soak up the sun's heat more than white. That's just physics! Personally, this jacket kept me reasonably cool all summer, even on the super hot and sunny days. It really stands out, which is a plus for safety too. Sep 25, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi
I live in Australia and I am looking for good quality summer jacket. We often have temperatures in high thirties degrees Celsius during the summer . Will this jacket be cool enough during AU summer to ride or I should look for something lighter?
Thank you

Qaiser C: SUMMER
I have the Black/White version of this jacket that I wore throughout the Texas summer. The temps here are similar to what you have mentioned. The first 5-7 minutes of your ride are cool because you have a micro-climate inside the jacket (granted that you started off cool). After that, it matters how much stop and go traffic you have. My rides were mostly 20 minutes or less with a 50-50 split of stop-go and highway speeds. I would try wearing a cooling vest if your ride is longer and you have decent speed (35mph/55kph or faster) and you don't have too much humidity where you live.

WINTER
My temp range for this jacket has been -2C to 40C. For the really cold days, you can wear a base layer and really no worries. The supplied inner liner works well down to about 7-10C

At some point, you will need to decide if you want the additional protection of leather vs cooling factor. If you're not going to the track, this is a really good choice. I love this jacket and will not go back to mesh-only even for the hottest days.

Jess H: Either look for something lighter, or also purchase the cooling vest that zips right into the jacket itself: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/revit-challenger-cooling-vest-insert

The jacket is top notch and works extremely well in most conditions other than high 30's Celsius (95+ Fahrenheit for us USA folk). Torrential downpours to wear ability and longevity. You may need a warmer jacket (I use a heated liner) when the temps get below the mid 50's (12-13 Celsius), traveling around 55mph (90kph).

chris p: not ridden in 50 degree weather. 60's with jacket insert and wind stopper shirt in mountains of new hampshire very good. this is proving to be versital, without liner for hot days. styling tops, mesh fabric can fray from rubbing on coarse objects(such as velcro). zipper is plastic, i've had it unzip 3-4 inches. longejivity could be a problem there. i do like this jacket. zipper, and fabric has a tendency to fray.

Chris H: Unfortunately this is not the best as far as ventilation. I would go with something a little lighter. It's a good all around jacket and great for rainy weather, but as far as hotter weather I would go with something else if possible. Aug 27, 2014

A shopper asked: Apart from the option to get this in white, how does this jacket (Galactic) differ from the Ignition I already own? Both are leather / mesh and have full waterproof liners. Is it just a styling difference? Dec 11, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Konstantinos P: Compared to the Ignition, the Galactic has a sport cut with more precurve to the arms whereas the Ignition has a relaxed or square cut. Dec 12, 2013
Michael M: I would say so. Galactic is a more aggressive, strop trooper, sport bike style. The Ignition can get away with both conservative and sport styling (in my opinion).

I'm sure Rev'it! has got some 3M piping for night visibility on the ignition, but the Galactic is more visible for sure.
