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
One Jacket to rule them ALL! First off some details so you understand where my perspective comes from: I am 30yr old male. 5 foot 7 inches 184lbs. 40inch chest 39inch waist From: Washington state. The temperatures ranged from 50F to 88F. I was caught in one rainstorm the other times there was a lot of sun and humidity on some days. I have used this jacket for about 3 months now. I feel after this much time I can give an accurate review. Fitment: My chest measurement is 40inches, my waist is 39inches” Size 52 FITS PERFECT! I feel very protected and it gives me a feeling of invincibility. I ordered the 50 at first but with the recommendation of Revzilla staff, Andrew, he said because I was going to add a chest and back protector I could move up to the size 52. The other two jackets I had used extensively are the Icon Contra TEXTILE MESH jacket, and the Dainese Racing Leather Jacket. In fitment the Galactic is very similar to the Dainese Racing Leather but not as skin tight. The jacket, as explained by Anthony in the videos, is a sport oriented cut. This means that it will not be skin tight like a proper racing leather jacket. When in the upright riding position on my Suzuki GS500 it was very comfortable. I would only feel tightness if I stood up or tried to stretch my arms, obviously this does NOT MATTER because the only position it should be judged upon is the riding position. DO NOT judge a jacket if it’s tight when you are walking around. The jacket is meant to be in the riding position not talking to people at bars or the bank. Ventilation: The air flow is somewhere I think this jacket lacks. Remember you can buy a COOLING VEST INSERT to incredibly increase ventilation. Compared to perforated leather jacket or a textile jacket this lacks airflow. It is not incredibly bad but I can imagine in 90+ degree humid weather, such as California or dry heat such as Arizona, it would be uncomfortable at anything below 25mph. For my weather in Washington though it was completely fine. I bought the jacket for protection and the airflow was sufficient. I only had an issue in stop and go traffic. Anything about 20-25mph and the jacket had average to above average ventilation. Remember any jacket will be hot in stop and go traffic no matter what jacket. I would definitely buy this jacket again. Water proof: The jacket performed perfectly. I bought it exactly for those times I would be in Seattle and it would rain. One day I put the waterproof liner in and I got caught in a huge downpour. Every part of my body was wet except my upperbody and helmet. I would like to add that even in the rain I got airflow. It did not feel like I was in a rubber suit sweating. It was comfortable and warm. Build Quality: The build quality is great! There are many fine details Anthony covers in the video review. Suffice it to say I did not think this jacket was lacking in anything here. It was above and beyond what was necessary. There are plenty of pockets, you can add back protector, it is waterproof, and with the separate cooling liner you could even make this jacket usable in very hot weather. One thing I did not like was that the neck liner on my jacket felt rough. It is mentioned in the video it is supposed to be soft but mine was rough. After about 2 weeks riding it though it became softer. It was a not an issue after 2 weeks. My riding conditions have been 45 deg. F to 88 deg. Fahrenheit and the jacket has been great. Around 50 degrees, I just close the zipper and my body feels nice and toasty. At 75 degrees or up, I just open the zipper a little. Overall, I really like this jacket. All the functions advertised by Rev’it are true to their words and I'm glad I chose this jacket my guilty pleasures jacket September 30, 2013
Awesome summer jacket I seem to be hard to fit since I have tried 4 other jackets of different brands and styles. I am 5'8" 185 lbs, 44" chest 37" waist and take a 33" shirt sleeve. Many coats were too tight and sleeves too long. I got a size 52 and it fits me perfect which according to the sizing chart I should be in a 54. It fits a little snug, just right, which feels great while riding since you don't have sleeves or the jacket body flapping around. I just got back from being caught in some heavy rain and my shirt was bone dry with the liner in. I don't think it's a good idea purposely wearing the coat in the rain since the leather is too nice to keep soaking in water. The liner also helps cut the cool wind down when the temps get below 70 deg.s. I am not sure how low a temp you will want to wear it, but with a good thin layer, like a merino wool base layer you should be able to extend its range. I have been wearing it on a lot on hot days, 85-90 no problems, plenty of air flow, this is where the coat really shines. I would have preferred a less power ranger look but the white logos and accents does give the rider more visibility for our adversaries, other vehicles. So it's comfortable, looks good, fits well, and I feel safe riding with it unlike all these Idiots who are riding in T shirts. Thanks to the Revzilla staff for being very helpful. September 2, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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 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

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

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: 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)
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.

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
Daniel P asked: Hey there,

I'm 5, 7" , 38" chest, 31" waist, should get the 46 or 48? I tried a 48 Dianese Super Speed at a store and it fitted right with the back protection.
Nov 20, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daivd H: Yes sir. Always think bigger size when dealing with Euro fits. If the Dianese fit well, I would expect the same with REV'IT. BTW. be sure and use saddle soap ever so often and a little mink oil. Good luck with your purchase. Nov 21, 2013
Reply to Daivd Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jonathan S: I'd go with the 46. I have a 42" chest and the 50" fits me well thru the shoulders and chest. I fit in size 52" for most dainese jackets. Nov 21, 2013

Michal K asked: Hey I'm considering buying this jacket and some gear 2 pants, I wear a Forcefield Extreme Harness. Now my measurements are 39.5 chest, 33 waist. So I'm thinking I need a size 50 jacket is that correct? It seems a little weird that I'm 48 in waist size but 50 in chest size. Oct 11, 2013
