Nails it on all factors for me. For a euro designed riding jacket, I have found this to be the quite versatile. Originally I was on a Harley, but I could not commit to the motor company's branded selection and style. I went into the Revzilla store and was assisted by an employee who, after discussing what I was looking for, brought me to this jacket. I wanted something that was more low key, had the benefits of leather, but also comfortable for summer weather. I love the muted Rev It logos on this jacket. The style felt right on my harley, and now on my street triple. The armor sits comfortably where it should and your arms are slightly curved to support someone who doesn't need a race style jacket. It kept me warm enough with all the layers in and a long sleeve shirt when i got stuck riding in a mid 30 degree F, at night. My only issue was that the hydratex liner was originally abrasive at the neck, but it seems to have softened up with slight wear and a wash. I'm 5'11" 195lbs and wear a size 50. The jacket can appear slightly bulgy with all the liners in but fits excellent, with some room for air to travel, when the liners are removed. The back "armor" isn't much to speak of, so I inserted the Rev'It Seesoft back protector. It is very comfortable and doesn't trap too much heat. I feel confident now that my elbows, shoulders, and back are properly protected. I also feel my money was well spent since the removable liners make this a great choice for temperate climates.

Looks and fits great I am 6'-1" 180lbs and my regular suit jacket size is 42L which is then tailored in around the body. I went with the size 52 Ignition 2 jacket and it fits excellent. It's cut for the riding position so there is more room in the back/shoulders than the chest. I can see how sizing would be difficult for the more "robust" American shape bit I would not fault Revit for that. If you are in decent shape I would recommend going with the standard +10 for sizing. Even with the liners there is still some cold airflow in the upper arm area. It feels fine to me down into the mid 40's but I don't think I would be good if much colder. March 20, 2014
Great!!! I am 5'11, 175lbs and went with the size 48. It fits me very well but without the inner, there is little room on the part of stomach. I think size 46 would be my size but because of my ling arms I got the 48. The style and quality are really good. March 13, 2014
Really good looking and well fitting jacket The look and feel of the leather - and there is a lot of it on this jacket is superb. The ventilation suffers but protection is excellent with the exception of the back protector which has the feel of soemthing you'd put in as a place holder for something after market - which I've had a hard time finding here. That said, the base protection and design are really substaintial so not a fatal flaw. December 10, 2013
really happy with this jacket I'm 5'11" with 37" chest, with a 33" waist. the size 48 jacket fits me like the description said it would. it feels comfortable with all the liners but a tad loose when they are out. November 18, 2013
Good Jacket for Moderate temps. I bought the Ignition 2 because it was getting too cold out to wear my Airwave jacket. This seemed like exactly what I needed: less airflow along with removable thermal and waterproof liners. I was sure I wanted another Rev-It Jacket because of how impressed I was with the Airwave. The Ignition 2 does do a good job of keeping me warm, and I can even pull out the liners and wear it when it's 80F with no complaints. If it was really cold, I don't think this would be enough, but it never gets really cold in San Diego. I am 6'0" 170lbs and I ordered the size 50. The arm length is just right and overall the dimensions seem good, but there is definitely some extra room in places (stomach area). With the liners installed it is very comfortable, but with them out it's a little poofy. There are no adjustment straps on the biceps which I liked on the Airwave. Also, it seems like the opening for your neck and head are set back just a tiny bit, and I find myself pulling the collar away from my throat at times. This might be due to the backpack I wear pulling down on the jacket in the back. Overall it is comfortable and I am happy with my purchase. I can't comment on durability yet because I've only worn it for about a month now. I would recommend this Jacket. November 9, 2013
Great jacket, really. This is my first "good" jacket, and I am thrilled to pieces with it. Comfortable, flows air, fits great, seems incredibly durable. Zip-in liners are great and take up little space if you travel with them. Great cut for upright ADV/street position. After calling and talking to customer service (which I recommend if you want it to fit right the first time) I described the way another jacket I had fit and its size. They recomended a size based on those factors and it was spot on. I am 6", 240 and wear a 58. It fits snug like it should and is adjustable should a lose a few lbs. October 28, 2013
Хорошая удобная многофункциональная куртка Куртка хорошая. (Покупал в комплекте со штанами. Тоже Rev'it! Ignition) В жару продуваются. В холодную и мокрую погоду пристегиваю внутренние курточки. Ездить вполне приемлемо. Видок крутой. По защите и прочности ничего сказать не могу, с виду и по ощущениям - хорошее. Стандартная спина только для вида. Плечи и локти есть. Сидят как влитые.Куртка удобная. Размер посоветовали в магазине по меркам, которые я выслал. Подошла по размеру отлично. Вывод: хорошая куртка и на жаркую (правда в пробках все же жарковато:)) и на прохладную погоду. Своих денег, я думаю, стоит. September 14, 2013

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

sej1: I just bought this jacket and have ridden it half a dozen times. The sleeves fit snug compared to my Sand Jacket (which has adjustments for sleeve fit). I have an athletic build so my arms might be a bit larger than someone who doesn't workout, but I find the fit tight enough and I suspect that the armor would more or less stay put if I went down in this jacket.

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. Its 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

A shopper asked: 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? Mar 31, 2012

Tola: 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. May 2, 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.

BigRosey: I would go 56. I did. I'm 6'4", 225, 35 sleeve, 38 waist. I have the waist straps sinched down most of the way. Sleeve length is plenty long for me as well. Great fit and not baggy. Apr 2, 2012

MicDuc: I would try the 54. I'm 5'6"-7" with a 44 chest and 34 waist at 180lbs. I bought the Rev'It Tornado 56 and it was way too big. I got the 52 and it was the right fit. Apr 10, 2012

Douglas H: 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. Aug 14, 2013

Burton: both the revit ignition 2 and the sand jacket share the same zipper 3/4 and standard zipper. I would use the 3/4 however as it gives a much better fit with the pants. Mar 30, 2012

Jae O: that's a tough question. it may be a bit large...

i'm 5'11", 44R, 33" waist, 195lbs and 52 was actually snug, but perfect.
to put things into perspective, I'm actually a 54 wearing Dainese, but Rev'it remains 52.

A shopper asked: Hi, since this jacket's thermal vest doesn't have sleeves, do you recommend using it in winter where the temps could go around -5 ?C and 0 / 5 ?C on average?? Oct 9, 2012
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.

Mirrory: If you don't mind doing a little tailoring work all track pants come with the opposite side of the zipper attached. So you can have a tailor do a zipper replacement on the jacket to the pants of your choice. It usually runs like $30~40 or maybe even less depending on the tailor. Jul 9, 2012

RevZilla: The Ignition 2 jacket and the Tarmac pant are not compatible. The Ignition 2 Jacket has a 72cm zipper, while the Tarmac pant has a true 360 degree / size specific zipper. Only the Gear 2 Pants come with zipper adapters. The short zipper will work, but not the long zipper. Jun 8, 2012

A shopper asked: How does this jacket compare to the Turbine for protection? Assuming both were upgraded to sas-tec back. Jan 22, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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. But if you're looking for ultimate protection it seems the Ignition would be the way to go. Apr 10, 2012
Reply to MicDuc Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
AliB: From an abrasion resistance standpoint, the Ignition 2 is better because leather is used in conjunction with the Dynax mesh. Although the Turbine is equipped with SuperFabric panels, they are only on the elbows and does not cover as much surface area as the leather in the Ignition 2. Jan 31, 2012
Reply to AliB Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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

A shopper asked: I'm a 38.5 inch chestԪ since the cut changed should I go for a 50 instead of a 48? I have a Rev'it CR Textile 48 that fits me fine, but that's probably because its worn in. Jan 21, 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

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.
