Light'em Up a Second Time with the Ignition 2
The REV'IT! Ignition 2 Jacket is one ridiculously awesome jacket that just begs to be worn every time you jump on your motorcycle!

Here on the Pacific coast this jacket is a perfect year-round solution. The Summers call for the bare basics, nothing but the jacket itself. Throughout Spring and Fall it's nice to keep a little warmer as the temperatures drops which means the addition of the thermal vest. Come Winter the rain starts falling and the hydratex liner gets added to the mix.

To my delight this jacket is incredibly comfortable and air flows quite freely when the hydratex liner isn't in. I've ridden wearing this jacket in temperatures ranging from 40° to 100° Fahrenheit (4° to 38° Celsius) and I could not be more impressed with its versatility!

The combination of leather and textile works beautifully to deliver fit, style, function, and protection. The shoulders and elbows in particular are well covered with both leather and armor. The back protector is another story and, quite frankly, is worthless. It's a piece of foam that wouldn't help in the least if one were in an accident. I highly recommend getting the Forcefield BackPad Insert Pro (Type B) in its place.

Back protector aside, this jacket is worth every ¢.

Stylish and comfortable
I am 6'1 and 200lbs with a broad shoulders and a 37 waist and got a 56, which I returned for a 54, which fits perfectly. As usual the return process with Revzilla was ridiculously easy and fast. The sizing chart says I should be a 56 or 58 so I'd say it fits large and has quite a lot of room in the stomach area.
Very comfortable jacket, and looks great. The airflow is better than I thought it would be, (I'm in Florida) and when moving, is very comfortable, even in high temperatures. I haven't had to use the waterproof or thermal lining yet, but they fit in well and look to be good quality.
Overall, very happy with the jacket, great style, fit, comfort, airflow, inserts and the stitching and finish looks top quality. I would certainly buy this jacket again, however for $500 I think at least a basic back protector should of been included.

Summer's end
I have had this jacket all summer and used it for 5000 miles from temps 50-98 degrees. I love the jacket, the protection options and the air flow. It can be quite hot when sitting still in the hot sun 80+ degrees, but if you are moving it is very nice even up to 96 degrees. Took it on a 1 week trip in July where it was 90+ every day (Tail of the Dragon, Blue Ridge Parkway) and it performed well. I did use it in the rain but it was so hot I left the liner out :-) The only time it was uncomfortable when you are stopped in the hot sun (or riding a Rocket III which has quite the flame thrower under the seat), which is expected.

I just recently had a ride at night at 53 degrees with the liner in and only a t-shirt. It was ok but a bit on the chilly side. going south of 55 degrees I would recommend a long sleeved shirt and maybe time to put the vest in for added comfort. Being on a naked cruiser I have no plans of pushing it into the low 40's but with a bike with better protection up front I can see this being possible.

Best all-arounder out there
I purchased the Ignition 2 with the thought that it would be a true multi-season jacket. The Ignition 2 is extremely capable, with a removable waterproof liner, removable thermal vest, and a textile front this jacket will keep you warm and dry when you need it and cool you down when temps start to go up. With the textile front and leather everywhere else you have a jacket that is, in my opinion, perfectly suited for nearly all occasions. After wearing this jacket for nearly two years, I can say that the quality of construction is extremely good and make it well worth the price.

Perfect in moderate weather conditions
I have owned this jacket for two years now and ride year round about 2,000 miles per month in the South. This jacket is great for a little rain or a little cold, but it's really a summer jacket that can CYA in adverse weather conditions.

Pros: I feel extremely well protected with leather and more rigid protection in all the right places, and mesh keeps me from overheating. I'm not a flashy person so the design was perfect, and even better is user friendly when trying to add layers in a hurry. The three layers are sturdy and can be combined to get you through any mild to hot weather. The leather, zippers and buttons have held up extremely well. You won't glow with reflective panels as you walk around, but friends who've seen me on the road have noticed my presence as a rider long before they reached me.

Cons: With the mesh, as good as you'll feel in the summer you'll feel terrible below 60 with the thermal liner in. The water liner is short and does not cut it in the rain. I have yet to be in a good rain one time without my shirt being moist to soaking wet and the liner forming a wet vacuum around my arms. The collar is too tight around the neck and there's no way gauntlet gloves will fit under those sleeves with the rain liner in if it rains.

Bottom Line: I love my jacket and it's perfect for the weather where I bought it (California) and extremely durable, but you will need to invest in some serious base and mid layers for the winter and another cover to keep dry.

Great jacket
This jacket is amazing. Super comfortable and good looking, with top notch protection. When its 90 degrees out, it doesnt get enough venting to keep you cool like a mesh would, but works for the other 10 months of the year and will keep you protected. Great great product.

Features-galore, quality leather, keeps you warm
Haven't had a chance to test it in the warm weather but with the vest and liner in I was able to stay warm at freeway speeds in 20 degree weather at night. I'm 6'1" 170lbs and the size 50 fits me well. Arms are just barely long enough for my lanky body. The armor in the shoulders and elbows feels promising. The back armor is a flimsy piece of foam that can be replaced with knox armor.

Good jacket
The Ignition is a nicely styled, comfortable, and safe jacket. It flows air...but not like a mesh summer jacket. I had a mesh jacket...and low sided....the mesh disintegrated and I got rashed up. Dealing with heat is easier than dealing with road rash. So, I've opted for the safety of leather. In SoCal this is a 4 season jacket. This jacket is very comphy up to the mid 80's.... any higher temps and it gets a bit toasty. I will be researching, and buying some sort of cooling clothing for summer. I am an athletic 5'9" 168 pounder with a 42 inch chest and size 52 fits perfect. I also wish they had a hi viz version.

Great quality. Beautiful design.
Heavy-duty leather so the jacket is a little heavier than I thought it would be, considering part of it is mesh, but still ok. I'm 6'1", 195 lbs., 43 chest, 34 waist and the size 54 fits like a glove --- perfect. Haven't used it in the heat yet so I can't rate the venting but with all that mesh and vents in the sleeves it should be fine. Love it!

What a supersweet jacket
This jacket has style all over it but is not flashy. No need to worry about craftsmanship. This things is extremely well made. How cool is that?
I am 6'5" & 210lbs. Bought the 54 and it fits well. With the two liners and the spine pad (not included, that is the reason for the 4/5 on bang for the buck) it is slightly snug. Feels just right.
Bummer the production version doesn't have the kick $&@ locking zipper tabs like in the video. That would have made this jacket nearly perfect.
Cannot wait to wear this thing to tatters!!!!

Dan L on May 25, 2016
had this jacket for about a month now and it gets better every day. The liner system is fantastic. The liners can be stored under your seat etc, so if the day starts out cold and warms up, you just take a layer out and keep riding. Arm vents work very well once you start moving. Couldn't be happier with this jacket, though for the price I think the back armor should be included.

I'm an athletic build 6' 190lb guy with a 42-43" chest and 34-35" arms. I tried this thing on and it fit incredibly well. I was hoping for a less expensive jacket but the fit, function and feel were just unmatched with anything cheaper I tried. It looks bad ass as well. Airflow and all the protection you need. I plan on pushing this thing into winter with a windproof shell underneath. Get it if you're on the fence.
Tim N on Jul 30, 2014
I wanted a the look and feel of a leather jacket but one I can wear even on hot days. This one fits the bill; ventilated frontt, back and arms, but also includes a water proof liner and thermal liner making it a 3 season jacket.

is the waterproof liner worth it? with the waterproof liner in and the thermal liner out, could i fit a hoodie to help keep me warm?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The waterproof liner is totally worth it. I spent 5 days riding through the North West coast and Canada on my Diavel, and it poured rain on me every single day. The Diavel has no fairing to speak of and this jacket kept me totally dry. The versatility of this jacket is tremendous.(Defintely invest in heavy textile waterproof gloves to increase overall dryness and warmth) The cut is generous so there is room to layer up under neath, but with the waterproof and thermal liners in I rarely found that I was "chilly". Looks and fit and finish of this garment are exceptional. Only downsides to this jacket are that its cut is generous, (I prefer tighter fitting jackets even for touring, best to order one size smaller than your normal size), and for a summer jacket, the leather panels definitely ramp up the heat as opposed to a full mesh jacket. I bought the rev it cooling vest, although expensive does work well as advertised. (Just not as long as they say) With the purchase of the mentioned cooling vest and maybe a fleece jacket, this jacket will do it all. From 40F-120F.
temp is mostly 90s for about 1/2 to 3/4 the year. does the ignition 2 provide good air flow to keep me cool?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have ridden mine for 6 months now in temperatures ranging from the thirties to 98 degrees. The jacket is a bit warm despite its superb ventilation at temperatures much above 85. Still it is bearable at 95. I have a Revit Tornado which is much better at the higher temperatures as long as you are moving. Once stopped both are too hot for comfort. Some would say that a higher ventilation mesh jacket at temperatures above 95 is actually warmer to wear than the leather as the outside air amongst traffic is freely penetrating, whereas the leather prevents as much of the ambient temperatures from getting through.
Anyone wearing one of these in New England?
I'm in CT and it gets 80+ and humid in the summer and chilly in the fall. What temperature ranges is this jacket comfortable in?
I'm mainly wondering if I can get away with buying just this instead of two separate jackets for spring/summer/fall.
Ariana D on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Important to note, I live in Orlando, FL and I ride year-round. Nevertheless, my experience with the jacket may be helpful. I've owned my REV'IT Ignition2 jacket for about a year. The jacket is the PERFECT year-round choice for central Florida. Although it is much hotter down here the humidity gets a bit closer to what you're experiencing. And, you know with humidity comes rain! The Eastern seaboard can surprise you with showers, if you commute you may have to launch into the rain. The jacket is good for rain, it comes with a breathable, waterproof/removable hydratex 3L membrane. I roll mine up military style with a velcro strap and carry it in a cargo pocket. Moreover, the jacket also comes with a vest! I'll zip it in for the couple of months that it dips into the 70's, I know - we are whimps - but were're acclimated for the near 95-degree/100% humidity of Summer riding here. In the middle of Summer I go "commado" with only the jacket and no undergarment. but usually I wear a headgear/Underarmor tee-shirt and remove the inserts and ride in the heat all day long. For YOUR cold days I suggest you insert the membrane and the vest, add a thermal/wicking undergarmet and you have the PERFECT Spring/Fall jacket! Lastly, with the added protective shoulders, elbows, and back with the reflective features you also get a SAFE year-around jacket that makes it a smart one-jacket buy.
Any New England riders wearing this?
I live in CT where it gets 80+ and humid in the summer and chilly in the fall. What seasons and temperatures are you guys able to wear this comfortably? I am wondering if I can get away with buying just this instead of two separate jackets or summer and fall..
A shopper on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm in Chicago and we have similar weather. I bought this jacket for the exact same reason. I've warn this jacket it 80+ degree weather and with the vents open and moving I've been fine. Sitting at a light might get a little hot but it's nothing to complain about. I've also worn this jacket on rides with the air temp in the high 30's. With all the layers that come with the jacket attached and an extra sweater my body was ok. The great thing about this jacket is that it will fit and feel great in any humanly possible weather you occur. Highly recommend it for your situation.
i live in virginia where it can get high 80s, pretty much 90+ cause of the humidity and stuff and usually down in the low 30s high 20s in winter time. doesnt rain too much..maybe 5 inches a month or something. between the rev'it ignition 2 and the rev'it galactic, which will help me stay cooler, warmer and dryer?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the Ignition 2 back in May and have been fairly pleased with the jacket. I've ridden it all summer in New England up to 90+ degree temps. I must say though, it's not the coolest jacket out there. Above 80, it's definitely warm and the sleeve vents do little to help keep you cool, especially when you're stuck in traffic. Between 60-70, this jacket is perfect and in lower temps, I'm sure the insulating layer would be great to keep you warm. Haven't had a chance to test this out yet. In hindsight, I would have purchased a more ventilated, mesh textile jacket. Don't get me wrong, the Ignition 2 is great, it's just not the best for warm, humid summers.
I have an A* T-Breeze and I find the sleeves too loose so the armor isn't snug on my arm. I feel that in the event of a crash, the armor will slide to the side and my arm will hit. I was wondering on the fit of the Ignition 2's armor and the snugness of the sleeves.
A shopper on Mar 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The armor can be a little 'loose' feeling when the liners are out if you have thin arms, even with the gear fully cinched down. I was involved in a tumbling low-side and my arms were unhurt for what it is worth.
The armor will 'flap' around when you rotate your arm quickly, again if you have thin biceps. My wrists, even though small, have no problem holding the jacket tightly in place.
You could find a reflective velcro strap to put around your bicep to keep the armor from moving if your worried. Or take it out and wear armor on your persons directly.
Hi, I am a tall guy 6,3 with 43 chest and 40 waist, 200 lbs and has a long arms - around 36. I want to ask - should I go with size 52 or 54?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I'm the same height, 27" arms and waist size w/ a 47" chest and went with a 58 even though revit chart said a 60 would fit my chest size. it was tight in chest but comfortable w/ liners in and perfect w/ them out, waist was a bit loose. Your waist to chest size it a bit more equal so I think it will be perfect if you go one size down from recommended chest size. Jacket is a very straight cut.
Watching this video , i cant help but notice that it keeps saying, that features are not available on production version... Seems like your loosing a lot of the value of the jacket.. Is it still worth it?
A shopper on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have owned this jacket for approximately 1.5 years now and it is simply awesome and a must-have. It can be used all seasons. The ventilation is amazing and you do not sacrifice safety. Also, the adjustment straps and zippers allow for a custom fit and even gauntlet gloves. I think the jacket is worth its value. Buy it. You will not regret it.
Hi,
I want to put in the additional back protector in my Ignition2 jacket, but im wondering if it would be possible to fit a Forcefield BackPad Pro instead of the Seesoft foam?
Is this possible or should i stick with Seesoft?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you draw this out on paper a 6" line at the top, 12" in the middle, and 5" at the bottom, with 15" being the top to bottom height you'll have the shape of the pouch that the back protector fits in when you connect the outer ends of the lines. It's kind of kidney shaped I'd say....
Can I combine a Revit Ignition 2 Jacket with Revit Gear Pant ? ie, is there any zipper in boths parts to make a close equipment ?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I own that combo (both are 52) and they zip with either the short or long connection zips. However, the long connection zip length varies with the size. I imagine they still may work if the sizes are close, but I'd check with RZ on that. I understand that the short connection zips are the same length no matter the size.

This is the REV'IT Ignition 2 Leather Jacket. It comes in black, comes in an anthracite version, there's also a ladies version in both colors as well. Now for those of you that know REV'IT, the Ignition has been around for almost five years, sine the original Ignition. This is its successor. The beauty of the Ignition is that you had all of the benefits from a protection and style standpoint of a leather jacket. You also had big, protective mesh panels, and furthermore, you could stretch it into inclement weather because you had a thermal liner as well as a waterproof, breathable liner.

All of those facets still ring true with this jacket. So around that $500 price point, you're getting a Euro-styled leather jacket from REV'IT, and the big feature that you want to come in and immediately hone in on is the Dynax mesh. What Dynax mesh is a very tightly weaved mesh that's very durable in the main construction on the front, along the inside of the sleeves, and on the back. That's going to allow for great airflow. On the inside of the waterproof liner is a thermal body warmer, so you're going to be able to really stretch this further. I'm going to give it a three-season rating.

I think the REV'IT Ignitions 2 jacket with the liner performs excellently early spring through mid to late fall. In the wintertime with the mesh on the exterior, it's going to be hard to really keep that warmth in because you can't stop all of the air, but the beauty is with the liners out, mid-summer in this leather, you get all the protective features of the Monaco cowhide in the impact zones, but you get that great airflow as well. So just a phenomenal jacket and bang for the buck.

Previously in the Ignition, I was between a 52 and a 54. I am now a 50. So through the shoulders and in the chest, it's a little bit more roomier. Going into that, what we've seen from REV'IT is a lot of their sizes from 2011 on have started to become a bit more generous for the American market. This jacket follows suit.

Some of the subtleties and the changes between the Ignition 1 and the Ignition 2 as I walk through, you're going to notice some design updates. They've toned down the branding. The original Ignition had big REV'IT in letters that were reflective everywhere. They've made it more subtle. They've changed some of the branded features. You now have a metallic REV'IT logo here. They've gotten rid of some of the REV'IT pieces that came down the arm, and it's a bit more styled. One of the other features I want to call out immediately is at the front of this jacket and shows that we now have a two-way side zipper here that's going to be another direct vent that's gonna go up the arm.

On the original Ignition, vents and the water resistant zippers were harder to use. It was a little bit different, a little bit harder to use. Now they've stolen a feature of what we originally saw on the Sand jacket, and they've incorporated into this leather. So further ventilation along the arm, and also you'll notice we've done away with the full strap that would come across with a flap, and we now have this zipper protected that's a little more subtle, it's a little bit less clunky.

Starting at the top and working our way down, we have a similar style collar, it's a bit more adjusted. It's two snaps, but we also have this nice micro-fleece roll that goes all the way around. It's still a sport collar but it's going to give you better ability to not chafe. Again, an upgrade on a new feature. YKK zippers throughout, so it's super high quality. All the snaps will be spring-loaded. You see two hand pockets here, on the right and on the left.

If we look at the side, you're still getting that Monaco. It's 1.2 to 1.4 race grade cowhide in the impact zones. So we have our leather that goes down the arms, impact zones, Pro-Life Armor under the shoulder, under the elbow, and into the forearm. That's an upgrade of armor on what we'd see as the basic KNOX from REV'IT which does a great job. The Pro-Life is going to be a bit more all-encompassing, it's a little bit more comfortable, so it's a nice step forward.

Articulated zone on the back of the elbow, you also have a nice, blacked-out Scotchlite panel which is reflective but doesn't add that crazy taped look to it. Notice too that what we've done is we have REV'IT leather logo here as opposed to a big word REV'IT, and then we also are gonna have that backed with the Scotchlite as well.

Moving into the cuff, it's a double snap, and then one of my favorite things about this cuff is that we talked about the two-way zipper. This zipper is a basic zipper, it's still YKK, this zipper is an auto-lock zipper. We see this in race suits. So with the zipper in that position, you cannot open this zipper. You flip it down, and the zipper comes right out. Notice once I do that, you're now exposing the waterproof, breathable Hydratex liner which we'll get to in a second.

Other features here on the side is that on the inside of the arms and all the way up around the shoulder blade, we have a PowerShell stretch panel which adds stretch here that's not leather in an area that's going to be a high-dynamic zone. You could really wear this jacket from everything from a cruiser to a touring bike to a Euro bike to a sport bike. It really covers all the bases. That's why we love it.

Looking at the back, big Dynax mesh panels, we have Temperfoam sewn in. They add a style element but also some light protection. Notice around the collar, you're gonna see again that micro-fleece. It's a bit of a higher collar than we saw on, I think, we saw in the previous version, but again that nice fleece ensures that you're not going to get any chafing. Then what they've done is that they've added another stripe here down the back of the Scotchlite blacked-out panel so it's not really loud and in-your-face, but it does the job effectively. And they've moved the REV'IT logo from the top to the back down to this elongated seat here as well. Notice on the inside of the side here we have our basic waist adjusters here as well.

Remember, there are two colors in the REV'IT Iginition 2 Jacket. First thing I want to note here as we break it open is here's going to be your thermal body warmer. The key here to note is that it's not a full sleeve. When we say body warmer, it really means vest, but notice that it's finished. It's quilted, you're going to have a pocket. Most times pockets and zippers on REV'IT on the inside of jackets are denoted with red so you can see them. Again, another pocket over on this side.

The internal body warmer has a snap at the bottom that's a metallic, spring-loaded snap. Again, high-quality snaps, they don't wear out. Same thing with high-quality, they use the best zippers. They're going to stay around for the life of the coat. It tells you what size it is. Remember, this was a 50 we're breaking down. Again, another spring-loaded snap up here along the collar.

So here's my vest. Not a destination layer, not meant to be worn on its own unless you have interesting taste, but functional nonetheless. Moving into the Hydratex liner here which is your waterproof, breathable layer. Notice that it's basic, it's functional, it has elastication to create a good seal, it's going to now for this version, have metallic, spring-loaded snaps as opposed to the plastic snaps that we saw in the previous version, and along the collar it's got the wicking collar.

Again, this is the layer that's going to want to take that sweat from your body, allow it to evaporate out, perspire out, and recreate a micro-climate that's comfortable inside. Whenever you have areas that are going to wick sweat away, they allow it to evaporate that much faster, and we all know that when it's warm out and it's steamy outside if it's raining, that around your collar is an area that can tend to sweat more than usual compared to the rest of your body.

YKK zippers, what I'm going to do is I'm going to start to break this guy down, so it's a lot of YKK zippers and a single tab up at the collar.

Moving to the inside of the REVIT Ignition 2, some other subtleties. We talked about the new micro-suede collar which is really comfortable, especially for a sport jacket. You have a new Napoleon pocket. As you can see, it's the same premium mesh lining that we see on most REV'IT coats that you start to get into this price range. This'll take the KNOX TP2 back shape. It comes with Temperfoam. You can upgrade yourself. We have two zippers, they're both Zip Vislon. They are the most heavy-duty of the YKK family. We have a seven incher, we also have a 360 zip. I didn't mention it earlier in the video, but Andrew is wearing the REV'IT Gear 2 pants which would be the ideal combo mix of functionality, which is leather, and breathability for a jacket like this.

So last but not least, let me discuss this Pro-Life Armor and explain the difference. If you're watching videos, know that for any high-end or mid-range coat we're going to break down the armor as well and give you a chance to see what it looks like. The Pro-Life's different; it's not symmetrical armor which I love which means the shoulders are ergonomic. Know that there's flex to it; it's meant to be more all-encompassing and the materials are made up to make it more comfortable. We also see that in elbow as well as the forearm protection in this guy.

The Ignition has been a staple for many years. It was one of the products that we consider the REV'IT brand being built on here in the United States since 2004, and we're very happy to finally have a successor in the mix that improves upon an already successful chassis.
