The neon yellow fabric combined with the 3M Scotchlite reflection stripes dramatically increases riders’ visibility on the road.

Very Bright The picture for the example is deceiving to what you actually get, when you open the box, you get this item in a little bag, you open up and to your surprised it is what you purchased just not like you thought, the picture shows and item of tight weaved material that is bright... the material in actually in fact the same kind of you get when you buy one of those cheap mesh safety vests at lows or home depot. the elastic is good quality, the buckle is just a loop around velcro attachment its ok but not for long term, I modified it by adding a quick release buckle to prevent wear of the velcro. The retro-reflectivity is Awesome! This product fits small, buy at least a size larger. if not two sizes larger, I am usually a medium size guy and got the medium and its super small. The reason I kept it is for back up on a ride that gets ruined by bad weather, gives me the ability to become much brighter to other drivers, also this is great for bike riding at night.. I think this is work about $20 maybe $30 at most. July 14, 2014
Leaves Something to be Desired I will echo what another reviewer wrote by saying the MSRP is ridiculously high for what you get in this vest. The stock photos are misleading as to the size of the vest. When unpacking it, my first thought was, "Really? That's it?" I hid the actual cost of the vest from my wife. Fit is a little small, but that's fine by me because I'm a small guy (5' 11'', 30-in. waist). I can't get over the fact that I feel like I'm wearing a t-shirt that is WAY to small because the base of the vest almost sits at the base of my sternum. Had I bought a size larger, however, I would probably be paragliding off of my bike. The visibility provided by the back swatch is superior to what you get from the front, which is arguably where most of your in-town dangers come from (cross traffic). Personally, I would feel better about rigging this to fit over a backpack than wear it on my person, but I'm sticking with my guns. I doubt there is anything on the market that's as stylized as this. Bottom line, if you want maximum visibility, try the other Rev'it vest or buy a crossing guard vest in hi-viz yellow. You might feel your cool factor drop a few points, but you'll be more visible than this vest will ever make you. July 7, 2014
Not limited to Rev'It! jackets I needed a hi-viz vest for my new Aerostich Transit jacket, but I couldn't use the Rev'It Athos vest I use on my Rev'It Gear 2 jacket because the side panels would completely block the underarm vents on the Transit. After some searching, I decided to try the Connector vest. The Connector's side pieces only overlap the pit vents by maybe 10%, which I'm not sure actually blocks any airflow in actual use, and the mesh back panel doesn't seem to restrict air outflow from the Transit's large rear vent. The outer chest pocket is blocked (that pocket is fairly useless anyway), but the vertical "hand-warmer" pockets aren't. Rev'It needs to supply better product images: the fabric IS mesh (better!), not solid, and the color is more akin to the Athos' bright green-yellow (again, better!) the really "pops" against a black jacket. Also, be aware that the vest isn't as long as it may seem in the images; it only extends to about mid-chest/back. I don't think any "missing" length would be easily visible to other motorists, anyway, particularly on the front. Though made specifically for some of Rev'It's newer jacket models that incorporate connectors ("Connector," get it?) on their fronts, the vest also incorporates a simple secondary connection system using Velcro and a fabric loop, so it can be used on just about any jacket on the market. However, the non-Rev'It connection system won't prevent the vest from slipping off the shoulders when donning/doffing the jacket, although it falls off much less than a few other safety vests I've owned. The Connector's side pieces are made of elastic, and are adjustable. On the road, the vest stays in place, without buffeting or flapping, and I only know it's even there when I have to unfasten it to unzip my jacket. As for sizing, I took the advice of Revzilla's reviewers and ordered down, selecting a Medium for my US 42 (Euro 52) jacket, and it fits just fine. May 19, 2014
nice but pricey nice vest and a must if you own the sand 2 -they may have 2 dollars in this and charge 50 but it is made just for this jacket - wish it had an attach point in the rear but overall a must have if you have a sands 2 May 19, 2014
Nice Vest The large fits my XL Levante jacket perfectly. It's a nice vest, just a little overpriced for what you're getting. August 20, 2013
Not for daily use The good, it looks great. It's low profile and has more style to it than other high viz options. It's lightweight, doesn't restrict airflow and can even fit in a jacket pocket for storage. The bad, mine has developed a hole in it after two weeks of use. It's under warranty but I will be ordered a sturdier vest for daily use. August 19, 2013
Simple product I prefer not to wear a lot of hi-viz but I wanted a little something extra to wear when traveling into congested areas (i.e Philly, Chicago). Integrates well with my Rev-it jacket, (stays on jacket when i take my jacket off). I wear a size L in jackets and ordered a M in vest...perfect fit. July 22, 2013
Great to be seen! Just got the vest with my new Levante jacket. I love the vest. I love how it attaches to the jacket. My only complaint is that there is no top loop to connect the back of the vest near the back collar area. It was an easy fix with a trip to the fabric store. July 22, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Mark H: This color is proven to annoy people that look at it. I'm a peace-lover myself, but if it means a cager stays clear of me and my Street Triple R, I'm a happy camper. Oct 8, 2014
Matthew M: I like the idea of being able to quickly install this for long trips but not have to have it installed constantly while riding offroad such as on Touratech's BDR's. Aug 12, 2014
Kermit J: Want the visibility in some areas. Can carry it in the motorcycle bag for several jackets. Probably don't need High Vis in some areas walking around. This is most flexible Hi Vis solution for several jackets and different situations. Aug 4, 2014
Richard D: Hi-Viz. Aug 4, 2014
alfred b: nice product comfort, it will really serve me in my night time ride. May 11, 2014
John G: For my father, I chose this so he could have good visibility with the jacket he already has, and it is not some sort of standard safety vest worn by workers out in the field which is what he is using now and flaps around in the wind, this is motorcycle riding specific. Apr 27, 2014
Bruce C: To increase my visibility in traffic. Mar 12, 2014
Harry W: I needed something to add to my black jacket so that I would be more noticeable to traffic. Dec 25, 2013
Susan S: my jacket is black Oct 30, 2013
A shopper asked: I understand that the Hi Viz Connector vest is made to connect to some, but not all Revit jackets. How about my Revit Airwaive jacket? Will the vest stay on the jacket without buttoning/zipping the vest? Sep 17, 2013

Hillary E: The Connector Vest does not have attachment points on my Airwave Jacket. Like you said some REVIT jackets are set up to have the vest looped onto with attached points sown into the jacket. For each of my riding jackts (REVIT, Alpinestars, and Dainese) I use it as an addition to my gear. I have to zip up my jacket first and then put on the Connector vest and secure the loop on the vest itself. It is a very simply system and the vest works well across many different jackets.

Oleg S: In fact when I bought the vest I never intended to use it with my Revit jacket. Firstly, because it is a hi viz jacket itself, secondly, I have a Dainese Air 3 for hot weather riding and I thought I woulf use it with the Dainese.

Having said that, I do not think the vest requires any buttoning or zipping when used on either jacket. - it just gets on top and velcroes securely.

Hope this id of help,
Oleg

David G: I don't own a Revit jacket, yet the vest works well anyway. I just connect the two sides of the vest with the Velcro closure at the bottom and it stays put. This vest will work with any jacket. It does need to be fastened at the bottom. There are no buttons nor zipper on it. Sep 17, 2013

Samuel M: Newer jackets come with the loops for the vest.
But you can still wear it over any jacket, the vest has its own loops for this case.
I wear it over my Airwave jacket with no problem whatsoever.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matthew H: I see they don't make a 2 XL size. I would just order the XL, I have a large for my jacket which is also a large and it fits fine, it is also adjustable and from other reviews I have read, it appears others are putting the large on their XL jackets. i would give the XL size a try.

Robin B: The size chart was pretty accurate just measure as suggested but with riding jacket on http://www.revzilla.com/revit-size-chart#32
The vest is adjustable and seems to be made to wear over your gear

Andrew L: I bought the Sand 2 in large and bought the vest in the same size. I would assume the XL vest would fit an XL jacket.

Kameran A: I ride with a Klim Latitude jacket. I had my tailor sew a couple of loop to the front. All you need is two small loops near the mid section of the jacket. Just to the left and right of the zipper at mid chest level. From the pictures, it looks like the Sand 2 jacket has the loops already in the jacket. The velcro straps go through the loops in the jacket to keep it down. Dec 9, 2013
