Vents well, doesn't protect well.
A little while back I went down wearing this jacket. I highsided during a tank slapper, and was thrown onto the asphalt at about sixty miles per hour. The jacket tore apart basically. The road rash I received was much less than if I wasn't wearing this jacket, but I still ended up with rash on the impact zones. So if you ride with this jacket on speeds higher than forty five, I wouldn't buy this. I'd go for a jacket that has leather impact zones with a textile construction, AT LEAST.

Air Flow!! Great Summer Jacket!
I'm just going to put this out here...the "Air" in the jacket's na#e = Air Flow! The amount of air flow in this jacket is unbelievable, and I found myself shivering when wearing only a t-shirt underneath and going 55+ mph when it was about 70 degrees outside. Definitely going to depending on the awesome airflow for the extended summer weather we experience in Florida. Thankfully I haven't had to test out the safety features of the jacket, so I'll have to take the word of the manufacturer or other users here who have gone down with it. Definitely recommend this product for warm, sunny climates. Just watch out for cooler weather and/or any rain on the horizon! Also I rode out with this on for 1 night ride on the highway and came back with it splattered in bug guts. Might be doing quite a bit of handwashing, can't get away with leaving anything on there since I purchased the white color.

Great Mesh Textile Jacket
After comparing a comparable Alpinestars jacket, I decided on the Rev'It GT-R Air in white. The real deciding factor for me was the spring loaded snaps. I have had really bad luck with Velcro closures on other jackets wearing out after a season or two. Whereas, the snap closures on my leather Rev'It Hawk is still going strong.

Which brings me to my other deciding factor, great experience with Rev'It. The GT-R Air doesn't disappoint. It was my go-to jacket all summer. The 3-D Mesh flows a ton of air, even though the small, tight weave wouldn't seem like it would. The reflective elements stand out, and the color accents are stylish.

As for fit, I am 6 feet tall and 225 lbs. I wear a 44 inch chest and 34 inch waist when I buy suits. I usually buy size L in American brand clothes. For this jacket, I bought size XL, and it fits perfectly. Definitely more of a European sizing.

The fit is comfortable, and the armor is secure and unobtrusive. White does get dirty. I machine washed and air dried the jacket with the armor removed, and the the jacket zipped. Held up fine. I highly recommend this jacket.

Great summer jacket, especially for the price.
This is my first motorcycle jacket and I've had it about 6 months now. I had a hard time picking a jacket due to all of the choices out there and finally decided just to pick this up because it got good reviews and wasn't too expensive.

It's obvious that it is made well and I have no doubt it will hold up. Since it was winter when I bought it this probably wasn't the best choice as it does nothing to keep you warm—it's not designed for that. It flows a ton of air.

I added the seesoft back protector as well. Not sure why they call it soft, it's rather hard actually...but not too bad. Just feels like you are wearing a small backpack if you don't have any thick layers underneath.

Things I like about this jacket are:
Fit / Good length in the arms (I have long arms).
Protection / construction
Styling
Air Flow

Things that could be a little better:
Pockets are a little hard to access
A little scratchy on the neck in front (maybe it's just me though).
A removable liner would be great but would increase the price so I prefer it's not there and the price is lower.

As advertised and then some
I am a brand new rider at the ripe old age of 44 so I don't have the experience with what a good or bad jacket should feel just so you understand where my starting point is. This jacket however fits like a glove and flows a tremendous amount of air. Blows the Astars Aspide away. The fine attention to detail, the fit and the finish are top notch IMO. I am 5'11", 178 - 40-42ish in a suit jacket and the large fits perfect. I have turned bcak on a 68 degree day as it just felt too chilly. I live in Austin, TX and will relish this jacket in a few months when the weather really heats up!

First Jacket, And It's A WINNER!
I could not have asked for a better jacket to start riding with. Here’s why:

Pros:

*This jacket actually fits. I am 5’ 11’’ with a 30-inch waist. Texans refer to me as a scrawny critter. That said, American-cut jackets swallow me whole. Rev’it produces garments that are more akin to a slim-fitting shirt and, therefore, I feel right at home when I wear this jacket. If you are at all concerned about sizing, do not hesitate to refer to the sizing chart. It is worth the trouble to measure yourself.

* Airflow is a magical thing, especially during Texas’ six-month summer. Although I have yet to ride in triple-digit weather I am confident this jacket will live up to its name. At 90 degrees I am comfortable while in motion.

* The jacket’s armor lies where it ought and stays put as it ought. For minor adjustments to the forearm/elbow armor, a snap flap is included on both forearms. This allows for a more snug fit if you happen to be a scrawny critter like myself.

* If you follow the sizing chart’s recommendations, fit will not be an issue; however, for minor adjustments to the jacket’s fit at the waistline there are velcro straps located near both hips. This was a huge save for me because, as I have mentioned twice already, I do not carry a lot of extra weight.

* If you happen to be riding with a pair of pants that do not have a compatible zipper attachment for the jacket, a snap enclosure attached to a cord will allow you to connect the jacket to a belt loop, which means the jacket will not rise up or leave you exposed while riding. I found this very thoughtful on the part of Rev’it.

* The white color scheme is particularly awesome and eye-catching. That I ended up on a white Ninja 300 makes it that much better.

Cons:

The European styling/fit of this jacket produces two infinitesimally small complaints, both of which reflect my personal preference and in no way speak negatively of the jacket’s quality.

* I am right-handed and understandably would prefer the zipper to be on the right side. Little did I know that when I bought this jacket I would learn to become ambidextrous!

* I might enjoy having a little more material on the front of the jacket as it sits just below the upper extremity of my pants. Of course, more material means more bunching when you sit in the saddle. If you are a scrawny critter, you might not like having the extra bulk.

In sum, I picked a fantastic product to keep me safe, cool, and happy while riding. If you live in a territory where the climate is warm to hot most of the year this is a fine product to consider. If you are safety-conscious like me, consider adding the appropriate back protector to this jacket as it does not come stock.

Cheers to all, and safe riding!

One word "Awesome"
I've had plenty of jackets in the past from leather to textile. No leather jacket is breathable no matter what they say. This Jacket is also fits amazingly, and light-weight...The pockets could be forward a little bit more, right now there on the side under your arm pits. They do have nice zipper straps to get into them easier tho which makes up for that. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone that is riding in the heat. But don't expect to go in the cold with this, doesn't work very well unless you throw a hoodie under it like I do.

You won't regret!!
After two summers suffering of over heating due to my "non friendly jacket" for warm weather, I decided to bet my savings on this Revit summer jacket. I must say I hit the jackpot with my choice as I am completely satisfy with this product.

First of all, I want to talk about sizing cause it is something specially important for those who buy from Revzilla from out of the USA (like me ^_^). My measures are: 39~40in chest, 5'8" height and about 170lbs (no big belly). I ended up picking the Medium size and it fitted absolutely perfect. I even used it wearing beneath a light sweter and had no drama at all. I wanted the back protector but they run out of stock, so I can't say how it woud fit with that on. I don't feel my self wrapped in the jacket, so I believe a back protector would go perfectly.

The only thing that annoyed me is the strap on the back to fix the jacket to your pants belt. If you are wearing a bag full of stuff, the button on the strap becames a preassure point due to the weight of the bag. This is not big deal, but still is good for others to know.

The air flow is great and when the temperature drops, you freeze xD
After spring is over I will have the chance to try this jacket in over 90 degree days and see if I can stand weekend rides of over an hour in the route.

Oh, I picked the white and black color and I'm surprise that the white color it's still white. I am wearing the jacket every day and I thought that with the heavy traffic, bus, trucks, etc, it wouldn't last a day clean. I even believed that it would get all dirty the moment I take it from its plastic bag, hahaha.

Great jacket - especially for the price
Have quite a few rides in this now. Flows LOTS of air and looks fantastic. Price is perfect. Those are the 3 main points. 86 degree ride and only warm at stoplights, cooling immediately with even moderate speeds.

Protection seems very good for a stylish, summer jacket with elbow/shoulder pads that stay in place. Very nice material with quality feel. Semi-articulated elbows. Long in back, short up front, slightly long arms - perfect cut. Back protector not included, but can be added. 2 internal chest pockets. Zippers and snaps all of excellent quality (YKK, spring buttons, etc.) that work great with no snags (I hate that). Stable and no flapping (I'm 5'-10", 160# and size M, no fairing, naked bike (Ducati Streetfighter) at highway speeds +

If you have read this far, this jacket is a no brainer. No need to spend more other than style/matching points. If you are looking at cheaper ones, move up to this one for sure!

The fit is slightly slimmer, I would describe it as an athletic cut if it was a shirt. Just be aware of that when you order a size, if you are borderline - go the next size up, Other than that - I love this jacket. For summer riding it is outstanding. Plenty of air flow combined with good protection. I never wanted to wear a jacket in the hotter summer months until I got this.

Bout it for fit, airflow, looks.
Love this jacket. Very comfortable, lots of airflow.
Riding the twisty roads, I don't notice the jacket at all!
I regularly get compliments.
Suite jacket I wear 39 regular, chest 97cm and muscular build. I typically wear a t-shirt only under it and use leather jacket for colder days so I'm not interested in layering. Small fits exactly; nothing slides around; painted on.
I think it should come with the back protector.

It was 104 deg F the other day and even though all vents were open, my perforated Vanson leather jacket does not let any heat escape while at standstill, especially when wearing a backpack. It felt like 120F after a 10 mile/20 min ride, I was drenched in sweat. No motorcycle jacket will keep you cool while city commuting on hot days, but this GT-R Air will help immensely compared to any vented mesh/leather jacket. The CE armor is a necessity (for me) and the Euro fit works with my slender frame.

Looking for something cooler and not so loud for running errands. Riding in SoCal and other desert rides on sport bike. What is a better option?

BEST ANSWER: Air.
I feel very comfortable wearing this with a tee shirt in 80+ degrees while riding. It has a close fit and I LOVE the collar. It's low cut and gives my neck room to breathe. I surges a spinal insert though. I wear this to work and on long (4hrs+) rides. You can always throw a sweater underneath. I ride with a club, I always have a vest on over it. I also own Rev'It pants with padding. They zip beautifully together to keep unwanted drafts from creeping up your back when leaned over on your tank full throttle open doing the speed limit ;)

The jacket also looks great with jeans. I've gotten compliments on the jacket from the ladies as we'll. I'm happy with my purchase.
I wouldn't wear this in the fall or anything below 60 degrees.
Since I have the white/black Revit GT-R Textile Jacket it gets dirty easy and fast. So do you have any good tips on how to wash it? Do I need to take out all the elbow and shoulder pads? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: For any protective motorcycle gear, including helmet liners, I would only recommend using Woolite detergent. It does a good job at getting the sweat and dirt out without compromising the integrity of the protective materials used in the safety gear. You can use either a warm 5 gallon bucket of water or get yourself one of those plastic tubs with the rope handles. Those work the best. You can put all the gear in the tub and let it soak for about 30 minutes. Hand rub/squeeze the materials and pads to get all the sweat and dirt out, then rinse it thoroughly with cold water. For bugs/mud, I would suggest a soft bristle tooth brush to aid in scrubbing them off. HANG DRY ONLY!!! You can use a fan to help speed up the drying process. I also recently purchased some disinfectant spray (similar to Febreze) meant for sports gear like football/soccer pads...that does a decent job at keeping any odor causing bacteria in check until you decide to do a thorough hand washing. Hope this helps!
Does this jacket come with a removable liner?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No it doesnt...however, because the interior is made of such a breathable mesh, it wont hold sweat for very long before it dries up. I have had this jacket for months and have not had any issues with odor. Another option would be to put some Woolite detergent in a large bucket of warm water and hand wash it. Hang dry and smell fresh :D I recently purchased some disinfectant spray meant for sports gear like football/soccer pads...that does a decent job at keeping any odor in check until you decide to do a thorough hand washing. Hope this helps!
Will this jacket zip to Airwave pants?
Aleksei P on Jan 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yeah I have the Airwave pants and they zip together nicely.
what kind of main zipper in on this jacket ? ykk metal starter noc or plastic chineese zipper?
brycea12 on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main zipper (as well as the forearms down to wrists) uses YKK zippers. Plastic elements, but the slider bodies and puller tabs are metal.
Does this comes with any inside liner to protect from light rain, just in case it happens? Or same liner to be used to reduce airflow in cooler weather situations?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No liner but thats the way I like it. Its light and cool but still good crash protection. A rain suit over it does a much better job for wet or cool mornings
I am tall and lanky in build 6'2" and 173 lbs with 39" chest., 37" waist and 28" arms measured from edge of shoulder. Will this jacket extend down the length of my arms? I don't want to wear a gauntlet glove to cover the jacket if it hits me 3" above the wrist. I realize Im on border between M and L. Wonder if either one will work though. Thanks

BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'2", 210lbs with 28" arms measured from the shoulder. After speaking with a Gear Geek I went with the XL and their recommendation was spot on. The sleeve hits me 1/2" above my top thumb knuckle when my arms are by my side.
Why its so hard to find the back protector which is compatible with this jacket? I purchased LG jacket and Type RV / Size 05 is not available and dont know how long I need to wait. If I knew about this, then I could have purchased a different jacket

BEST ANSWER: I had a Klim D30 which needed to be trimmed a little on the sides. Trimmed with sizers! Like the Klim protector. It is $40 close out now. Love the jacket, looks good with my CBR600RR
Looking for my first jacket. Can I realistically wear this jacket spring/summer/fall in NJ? Or should I be looking at a different jacket? I've narrowed things down to three jackets. Rev It GTR air, Joe Rocket 4.0 and the Tour master Sonora
Donald M on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not really familiar with NJ temperatures, but I'd say it really depends on your cold tolerance, but I never ride with this below 50. You may be able to fit a windbreaker jacket or something under it, and it'd maybe be acceptable at those temps, but idk. I have a leather jacket I use when I ride in the 40s. This jacket flows a ton of air and is absolutely fantastic for the medium and hot temperatures though. So for late spring, all summer, and early fall, this jacket is amazing. I ride with this jacket prob 80% of the time, the other 20% I'm in my heavier leather one. (I'm in UT and usually ride about 8-9 months out of the year - depending on when it starts and stops snowing and being super cold in the winter months)
Love this jacket but interested in more heavy duty spinal protection than suggested in the description. What would work with this particular jacket? Thanks :)

The REV'IT! GT-R Air Textile Jacket is a replacement for the Tarmac. Nice step forward in the REV'IT collection. You're going to see a new clean line and a mixture of meshes. We now have air mesh coupled with 3D mesh. It's going to provide better airflow. They've also beefed up some of the reflective. It's a nice iteration of what we've seen. Four colors available. There's a black version, a black white. There's also a black green which is really, really nice.

Now quickly think about it in the family of entry level mesh jackets from REV'IT and REV'IT's a super premium European brand so I hate to call anything entry level, but it's just over that $200 mark. You have the more touring oriented airway jacket. You have the GT-R Air which is definitely more of a sport cut, waist length coat, part of their city collection in that same price bucket so if you're looking mesh check those guys out. Now a quick note on sizing. No surprises here. I don't think it's an overly touring cut. I don't think it's overly European. I think it's right on the money. It should link up nicely with the size chart. 

Now you can always look at something like the Levante or something like Tornado if you want that waterproof, breathable functionality, but really looking at the GT-R Air you're getting the base mixture of mesh, CE rated Knox Flexiform armour in the shoulders as well as the elbows. You have nice reflective under the REV'IT logos on the side. You can see how everything comes down along the elbow with a nice accordion stretch fabric here, too, for flexibility. Now the back's not going to come with a back protector. It would take a CE level two type RV. Keep that in mind. But the big upgrade here, too, again in the back is that the original Tarmac Air didn't have a ton of reflective. They've added some GT-R Air reflectivity here in the back and again, nice big panel of 3D mesh for exhaust through the top.

You'll see down along the hip, there's hip adjusters which are just basic. You have bicep adjusters and the cuffs are very simple as well with a snap and then a YKK zip. That's one of the things that REV'IT's famous for. They use upgraded components, the spring loaded snaps, YKK zippers. Again the stuff holds together really well over the course of time. Even down the insides of the arms you're going to get great airflow from a lot of those mesh panels coming through and, again, basic hand warmers on the side. You'll notice that they got rid of the collar snap they used to have on the Tarmac. This is a very classically styled mandarin styled sports collar and if you open it up you're going to see a few things going on in the inside.

The first thing you're going to notice is a basic mesh lining, again to promote airflow for this three season hot weather or really two season, think warm to hot weather riding condition jacket. And then you also have these loops for your earbuds that live here in the iPod or iPhone pocket and, again, I'm calling it that but you can put any type of phone or music device in there. And then up here you're going to see the short connection zipper and that's for the Challenger vest from REV'IT which is that evaporative cooling vest that's part of the Hyper Cool collection that you can add to any jacket in part of the newer collections after the fact. Add it in and when it's stiflingly hot, it's going to keep you cool at speed.
