REV'IT! Ignition 2 Jacket 4.6 5 70 70
Good lucks but disappointed! This jacket looks amazing! It has protection in the right places and a lot of cool features. I have to say though I was surprised about how poorly it performs in both hot and cold weather. Compared to another fully leather jacket I used I thought this would be better during really hot weather but I distinctly feel like I was sweating a lot more in this jacket. Also in the cold, I distinctly felt that this jacket wasn't doing a good job and I had wear thicker sweaters underneath instead of my usual shirt. I haven't tried it in the rain yet but given how it performs in the cold I wouldn't want to. October 31, 2015
Great Jacket! Bought the Gear 2 pants and decided to go ahead and get the matching jacket. I really like flexibility of cold liner and rain liner. This jacket has been great for both warm summer days and rainy fall days. I use it for commuting and just take the liners with me. Leather sections are really nice, stitching and construction is very nice. More of a boxy fit than European, but that was good for me as I'm not as skinny as I used to be. Very cool style and lots of functionality for a single jacket. I don't think this would do very cold days, but for everything else it's great!! October 13, 2015
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. September 20, 2015
Get what you pay for...Very nice but pricey Very nice fitting jacket...has all the protection in elbows and shoulders....back piece needs to be upgraded which I in my opinion is ridiculous at this price point. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, otherwise awesome jacket for spring to fall. Comfortable between 45 and 90 degrees and an extra 50 bucks for back armor. Bought the pants to but will review them separately. Hip armor upgrade required...4star July 5, 2015
Awesome Jacket! Fit: The Ignition 2 jacket does a sporty fit, but I found it to run big where most others found it to run small. I ordered the jacket after doing all the measurements and looking at the Rev'It! size chart. It was definitely a size too big. Revzilla made it really east to exchange and was very happy with the size down from my original order. Pros: With all the liners out, it breathes extremely well. I went out for a ride on an 80 degree day and was actually chilly at times. With all the liners in, the jacket kept me warm at 40 degrees, also completely dry during two separate rain showers I was in. Cons: I only have one and thats with the neck strap / button. The button is really hard to snap on your neck, with or without gloves on. This is definitely the goto jacket for most situations. If you were only going to buy one jacket, this is the one. May 11, 2015
Great comfort, style, and protection I was really wanting a full leather jacket, but I was worried about it being to hot in the summer. This was a great compromise that looks great, offers great protection, and is very comfortable! May 5, 2015
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.

Slightly Disappointed I will say that I am a new rider and new to buying motorcycle gear. I was fitted by a sales rep at one of the chain's local stores in my city. The fit that he felt was appropriate for feels awfully snug, but "this is how motorcycle jackets are made." Which is all well and good, and i've come to enjoy a snug fit, but the problem lies now with layering. In 30 degree weather, with a hoodie and thin bomber jacket underneath, i am still quite cold. This jack is supposed to have 3 layers to and is supposed to be one of the most versatile jackets on the market, but it does not do well in the winter weather. For the price of this jacket, and its supposed versatility, its not worth it. I should have purchased winter jacket and then waited to purchase a summer jacket. Another aspect of the jacket that really irritates me is that the collar is so uncomfortable that i can't zipper the jacket fully. It certainly is a nice looking jacket, and I'm sure this jacket will fair well in the summer time as i will be removing two of its layers. February 16, 2015

Tim N: 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. Jul 30, 2014

Roland H: 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.

Jeremy M: It flows pretty decent air, and it's my go-to jacket for rainy weather from late spring through early fall. But it wouldn't be my first choice for hot, dry weather mainly because the leather adds a little too much weight, which can offset some of the airflow. If you don't ride in the rain very much, I would recommend something made of more lightweight material such as the REV'IT! Airwave or the Dainese Air-Flux. I personally ended up buying the Air-Flux, and I can comfortably wear it even when the temperature reaches triple digits (it almost feels like wearing a t-shirt). But the Airwave seems to be very highly rated for its cooling features as well. Aug 14, 2013

Omid R: There is no doubt a full mesh jacket will give you the best airflow and keep you coolest, but they can not provide the level of protection that the IGN2 gives you. I was actually very impressed how well both the jacket and pants let air in and circulate. Let me put it this way... I bought this to be a 3 season gear and I doubt I'll be able to wear it below 55 even with all the liners in. That's how good of an airflow it provides.
I wore this for 150 miles on a 90 day while in stop and go traffic. It does get hot at a stand stil, but as soon as you start moving it cools you down. The forearm vents are fantastic and they help a lot for air flow.

A s: HI.
The Ignition2 is an awesome jacket , very well built , a top quality product, but I wouldnt recommend it for temps around the 30`s.
Even without the inner layers , the Ignition is a heavy jacket , with a lot of leather material . It does offer tons of protection, but during the warmer months I was having a hard time with it. For road use, wasnt bad, but for daily commute it was way to warm.
I would get a jacket specific for warmer weather , such as the Revit Airwave. You wont get as much protection as with the Ignition, but at least you wont "melt" everytime stoplight.

Brent M: Jeremy and Omid are both right.

I generally wear the IGN2 up to about 85 degrees. Higher than that, and I'm in the Airwave instead. The IGN2 does flow air well (sans hi-viz vest) and the forearm vents are effective. It's comfortable up to about 90 - while underway - in my experience. I prefer the Airwave for around town, stop-and-go when it gets 85 or more. The Airwave is significantly lighter weight with a lot more mesh (and therefore the downside of less protection).

Curran L: It has a tighter mesh than other jackets so the air flow isn't quite as free as some jackets. On the flip side I feel it provides better protection, is more durable, and less prone to snagging as the open mesh patterns. I live in NM and have ridden plenty of days in 90 degree weather. When your moving it is fine, when you stop it gets pretty sweaty. Over all, I'm happy and would make the same choice in jacket if I could do it over. Aug 14, 2013

Mathew B: This is considered a three season jacket as it comes with a thermal and wind liner. As long as those are removed and you are moving, there is good airflow through the jacket. But as it is an all black jacket, it can heat up pretty quickly when sitting still. Keep the pockets and lower forearm zippers open and the ride is comfortable. For the temperature you are describing though, I would recommend a full textile mesh jacket. Aug 14, 2013

Benjamin R: I live in the Bay Area where it rarely hits these temps. I have worn it in weather as hot as 85F and it did a good job. When you remove all liners and have the sleeve vents open it's pretty good. I have a Rev'IT mesh jacket for temps above 90 now and so I mainly use it when I'm traveling to places further from the coast.

You won't be disappointed by this jacket and IT will do for what you are asking.

Bryant P: The ignition 2 provides good airflow, but at 90 degrees you still won't necessarily be cool. On the other hand I never felt like there wasn't enough airflow on those 90-plus degree days. I've accepted that I will be hot and sweat if I ride with the jacket on at temps above 80 or so. I don't have another jacket to compare the Ignition 2's hot weather performance against, however.

Craig B: Riding around town in the 90s with this jacket will probably be a little warm, especially if it is sunny and you have stop and go traffic. On the open road, this thing breathes really well considering the mix of solid leather and mesh panels. I think this jacket's comfortable top end for slow riding is about 85 degrees but on the highway, heat isn't a problem. Aug 14, 2013

Jose G: Depends on how fast you're going and if there are a lot of traffic lights. Also the humidity. If it's mostly dry and you're mostly moving at over 30 mph, in my opinion you'll be ok.

I wore mine in 95 degree 70% humidity and I was fine as long as I was moving over 45 mph. As soon as I hit a stop it was brutal though.

Jeff G: I've wore my Ignition 2 all summer(2013) I did an 8 trip where it was in the triple digits and I really wished I had a mesh jacket instead of my Ignition. It's bearable in the low 90s whilst you're moving. I am looking forward to the cooler months for sure! Going to get a mesh jacket for next summer. Sep 15, 2013

Jason W: This jacket is fine while on the move - even in the 90s. However, you'll feel it's weight and the heat (mostly on the leather forearms) when stopped. Still a great jacket. I bought a full-mesh jacket as well for the hottest temps, but that's because I commute in awful stop 'n go traffic. Aug 14, 2013
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: Due to the mesh panels front and back and the large arm vents. You'll be hard pressed to find a jacket with more air flow that offer the same level of protection. Please keep in mind that using the thermal or rain liner will decrease the flow greatly. Aug 14, 2013

Joseph G: This is a great jacket but in the 90s I am warm. It is mostly leather so it is a pretty warm jacket. As long as you are moving you can stay fairly cool. I picked this jacket because if I go down I want leather and not mesh protecting me. Aug 15, 2013

A shopper asked: 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? Aug 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brad L: 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. Aug 15, 2013

John C: You use the Revit Challenger vest? Does it fit properly in the Ignition 2? Thanks May 19, 2014
Jeffrey F: The waterproof liner is definitely a valuable layer. As far as waterproofness goes, it is basically reliable, but because it is *inside* the jacket a pouring rain will still (1) soak the outer layer and (2) possibly leave you drenched from rivulets running down into your sleeves and crotch area, depending on your position, and whether or not it is combined with a properly positioned waterproof pants layer.

In all but a downpour, however, the liner will keep you mostly dry.

The real bonus though is that the waterproof liner also acts as your windblock layer, turning the mesh jacket into a much warmer affair. The difference is huge, and well worth having in any cooler temperatures, rain or shine.

Yes, you can easily fit a hoodie, sweater, etc. under the liner -- it's really paper thin. However, beware that the neck can be snug -- if you have any trouble fitting a hoodie under this jacket it will probably be at the neck.

ray e: In my view Hoodie's do not lend themselves to moto environs . If your jacket fits loose of course you can wear anything you like under it. I have worn this jacket and pants only in HOT HOT weather so far and wore it without the liners as for maximum air movement.
That said I got soaked real good on occasion and the mesh moves so much air that it dried almost immediatly so water liners in hot weather are probably not necessary.
You question however speaks to a colder need. I wear other jackets for real cold but when out west found that all the Revit liner mesh jackets were only warm above 55 or 60 degrees but adequate at that range or above. My favorite solution out west was to take along my First gear waterproof heated liner and it worked perfect down to low forties and simply slip it off when the desert temps soared and as long as we were moving the jacket moved enough air to cruise comfortably up to about mid 80's . I hope this helps.

Yun Lung Y: The liners are not really "ergonomic". It's more of a emergency item. It's a lot warmer and logistically feasible to wear a good quality fleece. With rain suit to keep warm. I would also say that the zipper and the liner are not industrial grade. Not something for heavy use.

I'm 6'1' 190 lb. athletic fit. 54 size.
Had it for 1.5 years. Put 23000 miles on it already. I put a lot of miles on my bike each year, it is not all that durable.if you ride 3000 miles a year it's totally good.

Liner are challenging to put on. Not something you would use on the side of the road, or on the go.

Joseph B: The waterproof liner in my opinion, is definitely worth it! I live in SF which can get chilly and wet and with the liner in I haven't needed to use the thermal liner. It looks slick inside the jacket, and takes up virtually no volume and adds practically no weight. Could you wear a hoodie underneath? Most likely. I can. But it's it's on the snug side of comfortable (still comfortable). It's a great jacket overall but it's a little short sometimes (shirt tails sticking out) which is really my only complaint.

Thomas E: Its a very versatile Jacket. A hoodie would fit underneath the liner. I found that the thermal liner is not warm enough at temperatures below 10 C and a long sleeved thermal shirt does work better. The waterproof liner is also the only windbreaker in this jacket so it is important for thermal protection. All around an excellent Jacket. Aug 14, 2013

Ariana D asked: 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.

Jimmy A: 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. Apr 18, 2015

A s: Hi Ariana. I'm in southeastern PA and we see plenty of heat and humidity here. I use the Ignition 2 for all 3 seasons. It has plenty of ventilation to keep you cool while moving. Sitting still is another story. It's dark so you tend to warm. I choose to wear a cooling vest underneath for added comfort. But the jacket itself is adequate.

For colder weather, the wind blocking liner and thermal liner are actually pretty decent. One thing to note is that this fits slightly different than other jackets. It's a little more generous in the chest and midsection which allows for added layers. I only ever add a quality cold weather base layer and I'm comfortable. I don't like bulk, I do like to be comfortable. This jacket provides the options that I wanted most.

No jacket will be perfect for 3 seasons. But with the proper base layers, the Ignition 2 is a great mid tier jacket. Likely buying my girlfriend one in the coming weeks.

Hope this helped. Safe riding!

John B: Hello

I ride my 1500 Vulcan in Northern Ontario..as in Canada for as long as the weather lets me. If you look at a map and see where Lakes Superior Michigan and Huron join, I'm there so I think you are "south" of me.

I find my jacket excellent in all weather, as you can zip in, or zip out, liners to suit the weather. The only slight things with this jacket are the plastic zippers being a bit finicky (metal would be better like IKO) and I find the sleeves about 2 inches too long, but that's just me.

I'd buy it again

Matthew H: 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. Apr 17, 2015

I found this jacket comfortable up to 77 degrees in city. When I came to a stop I feel a little hot. Travelling, I´ve faced 80+ and feels very comfortable.

The lower t° limit, at least for me, is in 55°f (with hydratex lining and warm layer). I hope this help. Have a good & safe ride.

Jeremy J: 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. Aug 15, 2013

Justin S: The ignition 2 is more or less a 3 season jacket. I live outside of Baltimore and I wear that jacket and gear 2 pants zipped together at all times. It's got mesh panels that breath a little, which might be too cold for the winter. It has a waterproof/wind proof liner inside that probably wouldn't work too well without at least a sweater in the winter. In the summer I take the liner out and it's still hot, but its better then skin grafts in case you ever go down. I would totally buy the suit twice, its designed and built very well Aug 14, 2013

Eric R: I live in VA too, and just got the Ignition 2 and I am very happy with it. I've ridden in hot weather with the rain liner in and it still did a great job of staying cool. Without any liner, is has great airflow. I can't say anything yet for cold/rainy weather, but a friend of mine has the previous Ignition jacket and he swears by it being a true 3+ seasons jacket. I think you can't go wrong with either, but I believe this one may keep you cooler judging from some of the reviews of others. Aug 15, 2013

jason b: i have limited experience with the jacket so take it at what it is worth. the ignition 2 has UNBELIEVABLE air flow. does come with a rain liner but personally i would just toss on a rain jacket over it if caught out in the rain. for cooler weather i doubt i'll be wearing this i'll go to my other jacket instead but from what i've been told you can feel the air even with the liners on and a heated jacket underneath.

for anything 70 + this is the best jacket i've had yet.

Raymond M: Sorry to take so long to reply. I ride in Honolulu. It's really hot and humid this summer. I wear the Ignition 2 for safety reasons. It is definitely not as cool as my mesh jacket but is an acceptable compromise. A lot cooler then a solid leather jacket. Not wearing a backpack makes it a lot cooler.
As for rain protection. I haven't got wet yet and haven't used the liner. I've been in short spells of rain and been fine.

A shopper asked: 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. Mar 27, 2012

Burton: 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.

maix: If you put the liners out and you are not visiting the gym 5 times a week than the arms will be little bit loose. It´s not that sport fit but more relax fit. Anyway you can put out the elbow armour and put slide on elbow protectors (knox, alpinestars,...) and the protection level will be ok.
I am considering to do it like this.

Sage73: The sleeves are pretty snug on me, but not uncomfortably so. I work out, but wouldn't say I have massive arms. However, the sleeves are perfect. I don't even feel the armor, and I think they are snug enough that the armor would not move in the event of a spill. Jul 26, 2012

RevZilla: I think you will find the sleeves on the Ignition 2 are more fitted than the T-Breeze. The Ignition 2 uses Pro Life armor which is a closed-cell foam with a lower profile, so the sleeve construction can be more fitted. Apr 3, 2012

Aristotle: Maix,
It looks like you posted a while ago, so you probably have your answer, but I would definitely go with the 54. I filled out a 52 pretty well, and I'm 5'10" with a 42 inch chest and 176 pounds. The 52 might fit you, but you'd have very little room to put anything in pockets or layer up for weather, which I think the jacket needs.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Brent M: I wouldn't. It flows a fair amount of diffused air, and although the thermal vest might keep your torso warm enough, your arms will get cold. I find it comfortable, but not warm and cozy, down to about 50F - maybe to the high 40s.

You might get away with your 0C rideability if you wore an effective long sleeve thermal underneath, but the jacket is pretty fitted with both liners installed and you may find the arms (biceps and forearms) a bit tight as a result.

RevZilla: The Ignition 2 would not be warm enough for those temperatures. Even with both the waterproof and thermal vest liners, there would be too much cold airflow to stay warm. We would recommend a full textile jacket with a full-sleeve insulated liner for those temperatures.

MicDuc: The Rev'It site lists the Ignition jacket "Monaco Performance Cowhide" as being strengthened for riding on the track or street. AMA racing regs state that riders must wear leather or Kevlar suits. No Cordura which is what the Turbine is made of. It is constructed of 1000D so it should offer decent protection.

AliB: From an abrasion resistance standpoint, the Ignition 2 is better because leather is used in conjunction with the Dynax mesh.

Burton: I own the sand and looking at the turbine review I would say they would be even in protection if not leaning toward the sand more since it doesn't have mesh. Mesh seems to wear faster than the 400 D they use elsewhere on the sand. Mar 30, 2012

Jorge M asked: Can I pair this jacket with another brands' trousers such as Dainese or Alpinestars? Jan 28, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ray e: All my diagnese pants have very small zippers. The Revit zippers including the Ignition jacket have a far more robust heavy duty zipper so the real answer is no they do not match. Work with same brand only . Alpine stars same thing so far as what Alpine D Dry I had was not as heavy as the revit.

Personally I bought both the pants and jacket that matches from Revit. if you want a perfect match get the black version of the jacket as the pants only come in black . Hope this helps. Buying gear is a real crap shoot but at least Revzilla gives you a shot at getting the right fit . I love this jacket and pants combo the only thing I don't like is the cuffs . They are bulky and hard to get the gloves over when it is worn in the rain. As leather mesh goes , I don't know of anything else that is water proof in this price point .

Jorge M: Thanks for the answer! So the zippers from the jacket match any pants? Jan 28, 2015
ray e: Very few zippers align with different brands . Some do some don't. just wear the jacket when you try on the pants and see. Obviously all the Revit gear matches up but others may not. How important is the zipper connection. I've never used that option more than on track days and last time i checked mesh does't pass tech on track days . jusayin Jan 29, 2015
Jorge M: You have a point! I just wanted to know because I'm looking for some pants and since the jacket has the zippers I didn't want to buy pants that would render the zipper option useless. Thanks ray Jan 29, 2015

A shopper asked: I suppose this is an inquiry regarding the waterproof capabilities. Would the hydratex do well in a storm? Aug 10, 2012

ctwheels: In my experience, completely waterproof. The only difference is that goretex breathes a little better. You really only notice it when it's really humid/wet out and raining. After you take the gloves/boots off you're a little moist. With Goretex, I've found bone dry hands/feet. Of course if it's really humid out, your hands will be moist anyway because you put-on, take-off the gloves and your hands contact the really humid air. I'm talking about 80-90 degrees F and 90% plus humidity, then rain (yuck)...happened a lot so far this year on the east coast. Aug 12, 2012

AliB: If you are wearing a REV'IT! CR Textile jacket, they are sized alpha numerically, not Euro numeric sizing. It's likely that you are either a medium or a large. If you have a REV'IT! CR Leather jacket that fits you comfortably in size 48, then I would recommend the same size in the Ignition 2. If you are wearing a size Large in the REV'IT! CR Textile, I would recommend a size 50 in the Ignition 2. Feb 1, 2012

James H asked: I bought a size 48 but the sleeves are short on me. I am planning on returning it and picking up the next size up (50). Im a very thin guy at 170lbs and 6' tall. I like the slimness of my 48 but I just need more sleeve. Does the next size up offer much more sleeve? Or do just the chest and waist measurements differ? Sep 9, 2014

Mathew B: I am 6'-2", 190 lbs with some pretty long arms. I currently own a siz 54 Ignition 2 Jacket and the sleeves are an acceptable length. It was hard to find a a brand that fits slimmer people with longer arms but I found REV'IT to be the best fit. Unfortunately jacket sleeves are always going to be a little short for guys like us with longer arms but the right set of gloves will fix that. Try the next size up and if that doesn't work, Revzilla has an awesome return policy and great customer service. Sep 10, 2014

A shopper asked: I fit nicely into a size 50 Tarmac Revit Leather Jacket, with a little room for a back protector.
My chest size varies between 39-40".

I was wondering what size I would be for this jacket?

Your youtube video claims that the Revit has now made their jackets a little looser fitting and sometimes you will need to size down for the ignition 2.

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.
