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.
