Very Cool Jacket
A couple of years ago when an order from Revzilla was delivered, included in the box was a magazine called RevZine featuring the coolest urban riding jackets I had ever seen. As I could not find any of them at Revzilla, I contacted RevIt directly. To my dismay they told me that all the urban jackets I was inquiring about were designed for the French and Italian markets only, where riders appreciated the urban look and that I should pick something from the jackets designed for the US market. I told them that they were underestimating US riders, that some of us were as fashion forward as our counterparts in Europe. We left it at that and I had my brother send me a jacket from Paris.
Fast forward 18 months or so and the cool jackets started trickling into the US market. I ended up buying the Melville, followed by the Oxford and Hillcrest.
I like them all but I really love the Hillcrest. It's a very simple jacket with protection at the arms and shoulders, and the possibility to add protection to the back. What I love about this jacket most though is the way it looks. It has this fantastic retro look, almost paying homage to the cafe racers from the 60s, however it does not yell 'motorcycle jacket' at all. It looks amazing over a white shirt and a tie. You could wear this thing to a board meeting if you wanted to...
It doesn't have perfect airflow or a ton of features. That's not what this jacket is about. If that's what you're interested in, you should look elsewhere. But if you want a very stylish jacket that works on and off the bike, this is your jacket. I ride to work every day and I find myself reaching for the Hillcrest every morning. My only gripe has to do with the two way zipper as I struggle to perfectly align the pulls to be able to slip the zipper tongue into them and zip up. Other that this little thing, it's the perfect jacket for me, riding in Southern California.
I bought the titanium colored jacket, liked it so much that I wanted to get the blue as well. Unfortunately the latter is not available until the end of summer. I'll order it then. It's worth the wait.

Fits well and love the style
I preordered this item in early may and it was delivered (as advertised) in the first week of June. I'm 6' and 165 lbs and the large fits perfectly. It's incredibly light and looks great; only thing this jacket lacks is ventilation.

A shopper asked:Trying to decide between large and XL. For those who bought either a large or XL could you measure the sleeve length from the shoulder seam to the bottom of the cuff? Thank you.Jun 27, 2014
