Much better Leather Mesh Jacket than Ignition
I preface this by saying I live and work in New Orleans, so technically this is a 4 seasons style jacket for me. It's a lot sportier than the ignition. It comes in white which is a huge plus for hotter climates, and the comfort and fit is so incredible. Rev'It's 2013 collection is actually much more impressive than usual. I work at a motorcycle dealer so I have access to a lot of gear, and I took a chance on this one and lucked out since none were available just yet. I'm 6'4" 230lbs so I went with a 54. I love the new addition of the sport fabric on the inside sleeves. This helps me out personally because I have large forearms, so it wasn't a tight fit. Really comfy and breathable. Incredibly impressed and I'm going to ride the heck out of this Jacket!!!

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

Great Versatile Jacket
This is a great jacket. The main thing is that it comes with so many extra features and at the price point it provides a lot.

The waterproof liner works very well and I have been through a few storms and it works great. Obviously it's still a sport-cut jacket so it may not protect all the way down your waist depending on how long your torso is, but still a great option for when you know it's going to be a wet out. You will definitely want to zip and button the liner all the way up otherwise your chest will be wet from the chest zipper. Have everything properly secured and you will be weatherproof.

Two issues with the jacket. First is air flow. This is definitely a great jacket for 3-3.5 seasons for the reasons mentioned above. However since it is a full leather jacket with very little perforation, it still is a little uncomfortable at anything above 80 degrees or so. Even when moving at high speeds, it doesnt flow quite enough air. I personally would keep a backup mesh jacket or something around if possible. It's not that it is completely undoable, as right now I ride an hour every day two and from work, but it could use a little more air flow. Issue two is build quality. The product is great everywhere so far except for the sleeves. The zippers so far have held up great, but the button clasps and the loops inside the sleeves holding the liners are very weak. The buttons and loops have all ripped out and did so within the first two weeks. I remember them happening when I turned to check for traffic and the right side loop and clasps snapped off and the button flew across the bike. Maybe I just had a dud, but this is concerning.

Overall, this is a great jacket and if you're looking for a lot of features and a sort of all in one jacket, I highly recommend this jacket (assuming the buttons and loops were a one case thing).

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.

Great looking jacket!!`
I bought the white with black. Looks very good and I have had several compliments. The white really stands out for visibility. I'm 5-10, 200 with a beer belly and I bought size 56. They were a little stiff at first, but a little saddle soap and some saddle time the fit perfect. I really, really like this jacket. For the great state of Texas, these are a 3 season jacket. It will be too hot during the hot summer months. The workmanship is perfect. I haven't had any problems in the 6 months I've owned this jacket. It fit's snug, not tight to my bod and there is no flapping of extra material in the wind. I took the liner out in favor of some Under Armor gear. I recommend this jacket. Best I've ever owned. Get one boys, you won't be disappointed. I rated it a 4 for bang for the buck, because it is pricey. But you get what you pay for. I'm just a little tight. I would buy again.

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).

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.

Great jacket even in Hawaii heat and traffic!
Hi Revzilla fellows! Cayce here doing my first review on a product. First off, I'm 5'4, fluctuate between 125-130 lbs and have around a 36 chest. I'm wearing a REV-IT! size 46 jacket and I gotta say this fits perfectly for me with a t-shirt or other shirt underneath. The wrists are a little snug when fully zipped but fit over my mesh gloves. I'm intending to buy some full gauntlets soon and I'm not sure if it'll fit over that but I'll come back and edit this when I do.

Performance in hot weather is good--ventilation feels lacking only when you're at a stoplight or sitting in stop-go traffic like I have here in Hawaii. Thanks to my ZX-6R, I'm typically in supersport riding position and when I get the jacket sitting just right, I get some airflow in through the sport collar and out through the mesh back panel, which cools the sweat on my body creating a sweet feel of awesome relief.

Jacket is really awesome for every-day riding. Two outside pockets with YKK zippers that slide behind a leather flap provide great personal storage along with three pockets with zippers integrated into the inner-mesh, I've fit my HTC One M8 with an Otterbox cover in one of the inner pockets--roomy!

Protection is adequate with leather and CE-1 rated plating in all the right places. I opted to also purchase the Seesoft Back Protector Type RV to provide me additional CE-2 rated protection for my back and spine. This brings the total investment up but when you're investing in keeping yourself alive and away from pricey hospital bills, I think this is the cheapest form of healthcare!

Styling is great and I often get positive comments about the jacket (I bought the white leather). It is a little more work to keep clean but it helps me stand out more, looks great, and I'm able to guilt myself into maintaining the jacket easier so that the leather lasts longer and I don't look like a lazy dirtbag. Win-win!

Overall, great product. Would highly recommend. Leather can be hot and "inconvenient", but I'll take sweat and inconvenience over hospital stays and road rash any day!

Great looking jacket for the man in my house. Lot's of protection.
Janet D on Jul 10, 2016
This jacket was my second choice and after a long and thought out review I'm glad I made this choice. But I still like the full leather one as well but it would have not been worn as often due to the state that I live in. The full leather jacket can get pretty hot.

I like the idea of a jacket that has leather in the critical areas but breathable mesh or textile flex panel material in other areas.
Plus the design and style of the jacket are very appealing.

Protection of leather. Match to Ignition 2 pants. Sportier and slimmer fit than Ignition 2 jacket. Reports show good ventilation.
Lillo B on Aug 13, 2014
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.

Jean Francis R on Jun 2, 2014
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.
Brent B on May 26, 2014
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

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.
Joseph B on Jan 17, 2014
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.
Silvio M on Oct 19, 2013
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.)

What pants from the RevIT line up are compatible with this racket?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Can this be worn safely through the long Seattle rainy winter? I mean, will the leather hold up against rain almost every other day?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do not see wearing in Seattle Rain, it is part mesh,though it does have inner waterproof linear. Seattle rain maybe to much.
Does the elbow armor in the Galactic jacket extend down the forearm?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
Bryan H on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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
A shopper on Aug 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this jacket have backplate? or a place to insert one?

BEST ANSWER: It comes with a filler peice, but you can buy a CE rated backplate from Revzilla.
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?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this jacket have a 360 zip? and can i connect it to the dianese delta pro 2?
Moe S on Feb 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the jacket has a zipper around the base that should allow it to attach to a pair of pants as long as the zipper teeth match up. The zipper connects the lining, not the leather of the jacket... Hope this helps,

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.
Srdanno on Nov 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I bought this jacket in a 50. It fits very well but I have skinny arms, does this jacket fit snugged in the arms in size 48?

Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It fits proportionate. I'm a thick kind of guy and the jacket fits snug all over. I bought a 56. I wear L to XL american jackets. I really don't think going down to a 48 is going to get any snugger for your arms. If 50 fits elsewhere, I would keep it. 48 will be a tighter fit all over, not just arms. You can always exchange it at RevZilla. They are great about doing that. I've exchanged items before. No hassle. Just be sure and save original packaging and don't take the tags off. Exchange it and see. Getting the right fit is important. And the guys at RevZilla understand this. BTW, I've had this jacket 2+ years and no problems whatsoever. Good luck!

You're looking at the REV'IT! Galactic jacket in a multi-season leather. REV'IT! finally listened to us. Thank you, REV'IT! gods! What you have is the successor to the Phoenix which is a full leather construction in 1.2 to 1.4 mil. cowhide with Dynax mesh, which is on the front and back, which is a beefed-up, abrasion-resistant mesh that will flow a ton of air. But here's the beauty in the Galactic. There is now a full-sleeve, waterproof, breathable, Hydratex lining built into this jacket.

I'm going to start with it. It's the big call-out feature. It is the thing that's going to allow you to get three seasons out of this jacket. So notice waterproof, breathable, it's going to zip in fully, and it allows you to turn this leather jacket into a fully waterproof, breathable leather jacket. Now, you can stretch it past the summer, you can stretch it early spring, mid-fall, depending on what you do with the base layer, you have the ability to block Mother Nature. That is really the key selling point, and we're big fans of the direction REV'IT! has gone.

Now let's briefly take a step back from that and talk about fit. No surprises. It's going to be a leather cut, it's going to be svelte in its construction, but it's not overly European. Again, no surprises. 

Pro-Life CE-rated armor in the shoulders as well as the elbows, so now you're getting the complimentary CE-rated armor that works with the cowhide to allow you the benefits, the protection of leather. The nice part is that they put these mesh panels and these stretch panels, which also flow some air, away from impact areas.

We have auto-locking YKK zippers in the cuffs. It's a lot of the same features that you're going to see from a race suit, but now in a multi-season style leather. Think of this as the sport style version of something like the Ignition 2. Nice low-profile, sports style collar with a roll at the top so it won't chafe. 

Elasticated panels with anthracite reflectivity on the elbow. Notice the cinch down here at the waist. If we look at the back, I actually really like this yoke, this pattern. This is a pattern I've seen before from REV'IT! but never on the leather side. Dynax mesh at the top, stretch panels in the shoulder blades, Dynax mesh around the back, so again, completing that airflow, drop leather seat. But then again, you have that leather panel that comes across the front.

There's a ladies version as well of the Galactic, and there's also a black version. This is the white/black. White/black tends to be a better seller, especially when we get into warmer weather leather coats.

Now one mention on protection for CE Level 2 protection in the back. Moving into 2013, REV'IT! has come out with a new proprietary protector. It's called the SeeSoft RV CE Level 2, and the nice part about it is it's size specific to the size of your jacket so it requires one more step from you. When you're on the product detail page, look at the size chart for the Galactic Jacket and it will tell you, based on the numeric size you're choosing, what size SeeSoft RV you should choose to fit in the back protector pocket. It's very important. If you have any questions, remember, shoot us a line, no issues with that.

You're also going to have a connection zip on the inside of this jacket as well, but being that it is mesh on the front and back we don't recommend you take it to the track. We've mentioned the different colors, we've talked about application with it. Really the thing you need to know is that it stacks up within that sport line, you're getting that multi-season leather functionality.

Remember, it's going to be mesh on the interior that's going to sit on top of the HydraTex. Then if you look around along the collar, it's going to be material that is going to be soft. It's not overly fleecy like something you see on a winter coat, but again, it's meant to be comfortable and not chafe you.
