REV'IT! Levante Jacket
handsome, well made piece. not sure about the liner.
I'm 5' 8", 170lbs and 42" chest and the large fits great.
I love the styling of the jacket. For the price its a good value, even with the Seesoft back protector added.
I wish they had only included an uninsulated liner. I've been using a "waterproof" liner from a Tourmaster mesh jacket, when I want to cut the wind. I can layer easily with my own fleece or sweater when it gets cold. The insulated liner is pretty bulky to fit in the rear pocket (or anywhere else).
Now that colder weather is coming, I'm considering a Klim shell - which if I'd gotten in the first place would have made this piece unnecessary as the Tourmaster mesh jacket without liner, actually flows air better. (I have a frogs toggs suit for rain.)

I've had a couple cheap riding jackets in the past. Most of them were junk. This jacket seems to be made by people who ride. People that know what's needed and provide exactly that.
The jacket works well beyond my expectations. Showing my sister and brother in law (who both ride) there were many "wow" moments at the innovative parts. Very good overall

Another Great Product from Rev'it
This Jacket arrive on Thursday night and immediately the fit was spot on based on the Revzilla sizing chart. I enjoyed the looked and color scheme of the silver jacket since I am not into high viz or wearing black. Friday I decided to run this jacket for an impromptu 1900 mile trip from Midland, TX to Fort Worth, Fort Davis, El Paso, and back to Midland. During this ride the temperatures went from over 100 degs riding in the desert to 60 degs in a thunderstorm. This jacket held up well and kept me very comfortable through the whole trip. I highly recommend this jacket for this looking for a multi-season jacket.

i enjoy the jacket very much. big front pockets are very useful, good airflow and good protection from cold and rain. high quality and it feels like it's going to last for years.
the jacket is long, almost covering the pockets of my jeans. and a lack of a small chest pocket for the papers is a little annoying

Great all round Touring Jacket
Added the additional back protector and even still the overall price for what you get is pretty good.
I took a long trip to Northern Arizona which included camping and touring, this jacket and the liner were always comfortable.
At the higher elevations and cooler temps the jacket was fantastic with the liner in at keeping me warm and dry while riding in light rain from temps around 40F-75F.
At lower elevations with the liner out, it flowed well enough to keep me comfortable in the heat from 75F-101F.
The fit was a little off, I had to buy the right size to fit my chest, but then the arms were a bit baggie. I was able to adjust and keep the protection where it needed to be, but the overlap on the cuff velcro seemed excessive.
Other than that it is a really nice jacket and is a huge bang for your buck given its price point. Affordable, safe, and comfortable.

Very good air flow, tight fit with liner, questionable construction
Rider: 6'2", 185 lbs, in shape.
Bought L and XL. Ended up sending back the L as it got a little tight in the shoulders and back when one lifts their arms with the liner in. This surprised me as the model in the product video seems like quite a big fellow and he was wearing a size large.
Immediately took this jacket on a cross country trip - excellent air flow. That being said, if you're in Nevada in 115 degree heat, it'll still be hot but that's not the jacket's fault. The liner is also great when it rains or when it gets cooler. Riding in the evening through Colorado I definitely had wished I had pulled over earlier to put the liner in as the air flow was very good. I appreciate the back pocket for the liner though I'm not sure it's large enough. If you roll up the liner and fit in there's quite a huge bump in the jacket.
The Seesoft RV (size 05 for L/XL) back protector is a MUST. Feels great and didn't feel out of place or bulky at all. Kind of just wish it already came pre-installed.
I'm not a fan of the velcro straps at the wrists - not sure how long that will last. With that said, I already noticed some stitching from the velcro to the one of the front pockets coming undone. Another quality issue I found was that in the L size there was a liner sleeve loop strap missing to lock the liner in...quite shoddy, imo.
Don't get me wrong, for the price, I'd definitely buy this jacket again. It actually also looks pretty good - not as good looking as their "city" collection but it still looks good for a moto jacket.

Looks good, feels good, great features
My wife said I looked like a hot race car driver ;-) So thats a good start!
I wish it came with the back protection included, as everywhere is back-ordered on it and I'm waiting for mine still a month later.
Fit is excellent I'm 220 6' bought size XL. Just wearing outer jacket so far on 80-90 deg days in Cali, and its fine so far. Over 95 it gets hot, but over 95 your hot even in a T-shirt.
Elbow protection seems to stay in place fine. Material feels super heavy duty.
It never gets THAT cold in SoCal so I plan on riding this year round.

Nice airflow, great styling
I bought this jacket based on a review of a buyer in Las Vegas. Since I am in the desert and deal with 100 degree day, good air flow was a must. This jacket is excellent with nice ventilation and the styling is superb. The fit is right on. I am 6'1", 210 pounds and the large fits nice. The inside liner is good from 55-75 degrees. On the con side, it doesn't have a gadget pocket near the zipper for a cell phone. The zipper on left side is awkward. It doesn't come with back protection so that is extra expense. The seefoam protector is thick so it is warm and bulky. I separated some of the panels to reduce the bulk. Overall, I recommend the jacket.
