REV'IT! Melville Jacket 4 5 26 26
Horrible Fit The person who designed this jacket has never sat on a motorcycle. The sleeves are way way way too short and the shoulders are way to constrictive. The medium and large are pretty similar both tight round the shoulders and short arms. The large is just better if you have a fat guts. so if you have wide shoulders and long arms but you are slim like me the fit is horrible. Apart from that its a great jacket. July 3, 2015
fit is a bit weird Overall a pretty nice jacket. It would be nice if it had a little more ventilation for warm days, but it's not very thick so it doesn't matter to much. It also fits pretty tight in the shoulders and pretty loose around the waist, at least for my build. I think an extra loop or two in the belt might fix that though. May 11, 2015
Optional Back protector Firstly this jacket is great. The style, the fit, the accessories (pockets, liner, etc.) are all amazing. My only concern is the Knox back protector they said would fit... Doesn't. I bought one to have more protection but it didn't fit right away, I had to put some elbow grease into it for it to go in the designated area. Other than that, I love the jacket! April 11, 2015
Great for on/off the bike The arms are a little short but nothing a glove can't cover. The waxed cotton almost has a plastic feel and a leatherish look. Lot's of pockets. The product fits tight with the liner but not uncomfortable. Perfect for wearing in rainy and cold weather. It looks really nice and the protectors cannot be seen from the outside. April 8, 2015
Great jacket- just not functional I'd held off on purchasing other "fashionable" waxed cotton jackets in hopes of finding something purpose-built for riding with modest protection. BINGO- REV'IT . Ordered XL size based on fitment recommendations. Size L fits me comfortably for most outerwear. I ordered XL anticipating some layering for cold weather. Me: 6' , 185#, 42" chest, 71" armspan finger tips to finger tips Bikes: Ducati S2R, Guzzi 1200s, MV Augusta Brutale - none of which have aggressive forward riding position, and are fairly upright. Likes: Classic styling & ample pockets Weather protection of waxed cotton Cold weather lining - zip in / zip out Dislikes: Sleeves- NOT canted forward for riding. Deal breaker! Snaps- light-weight sharp edges. Buckle- thin/stamped. not robust. lightweight belt- no heft. Zipper- one-way. Jacket bunches up below the waist when in riding position. Temps in the 30's / 40's today would've been the perfect test for this jacket, but it never made it out of the house. Sleeve length is much too short for my frame. Cuffs were near mid-forearm with elbows slightly raised. Wearing a t-shirt and light-weight micro-fleece pullover the sleeves were tight with the jacket liner in place. Sleeves are in no way canted forward. Even in a modest upright position with arms forward, the jacket was VERY constrictive through the shoulders. It's quite a handsome jacket walking around. Just don't reach for anything. Movement is poor, and it did not - at least for me - facilitate a comfortable riding position on a naked standard bike. March 28, 2015
Great on or off the bike Mainly a commuter so I'm using this in the wet or cold in the Pacific Northwest. I'm comfortable just wearing a t-shirt under the jacket and liner when the temps around 50 and below. In the rain it's great. Water doesn't get through and it keeps me warm. It doesn't allow much airflow which is good for that kind of weather. I don't like giant brands posted on my clothes so it's a nice subtle jacket if you don't like the Power Ranger look. Fit is a little small if you're a wide guy. I'm 5'8" and 220, so it's hard to get proper sized gear. The XL is a bit snug on my shoulders but other than that it's a perfect fit. Perfect jacket for everyday riding in wet or cold weather. March 21, 2015
Nice and different jacket It is good jacket, but I was hoping the brown was more dark and slightly reddish. The wax cotton is also different. I'm assuming the wax is synthetic, thus the confusion of some buyers questioning that it is plastic. I would also suggest that you buy the back protector, since it does not come with one, which does not make sense to me. February 16, 2015
Really Nice Classic Jacket with Real World Protection So far I'm really pleased with this jacket. It's warm, windproof and looks like a regular coat. Other reviews have said it, but aside from the small Rev'It logo on the back of the collar, you'd never know this was a motorcycle jacket. I've been wearing it out even when I'm not on the bike and don't feel out of place. The waxed cotton has a rubberized feel to it and I'm kind of curious to see how it will break in. Although I haven't tested it yet, I don't doubt the water resistance a bit. The whole jacket is a slimmer cut than it might appear in the video. I'm 5'9" (1.75m) / 180lbs (82kg) and a large fits just right. With the liner in, the sleeves feel snug, but not constricting. I've been wearing this jacket on short rides back and forth to work in the 30's and been comfortable. December 8, 2014

"" ": Yes it is but why would you want to cause it's part of the style. I bought this jacket to replace a 1970s Belstaff . When I didn't want to use the belt I would clasp it behind the coat. You can still buy the Belstaff belt. Mar 31, 2014

I have both the Melville and Oxford. They look and function the same way. The only difference between the two is the waxed cotton outer fabric on the Melville.

A shopper asked: I am guessing by the design of the snaps and zipper, this would not be the jacket for a cafe racer with clipons or clubman bars? Seems they would scratch the tank in that sport style position. A shame if so, as it really is a beautiful jacket and offers the features I require. Jan 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael C: Most likely not the case. Lower snaps are coated to protect. I suppose if you're chest is always on the tank, perhaps. This jacket did not work for me. The issue is that if you have clip-on bars the sleeves are too short when you're in that position. At least for me, anyway. Upright riders will love this jacket. But If you have clip-on bars or in any way your riding position is such that your hands are out and down, be prepared for exposed wrists. Jan 6, 2014

Jeff W: I love this jacket! However, I would agree that it is probably not the best fit for a real sport style position. Works great on my R1200 R though.

PS The Knox back insert does not fit either. The Rev Zilla guys confirmed this.

As a recommendation, check out the Oxford jacket as well. It's identical to the Melville except for the matte fabric finish compared to the shiny waxed cotton on the Melville.

A shopper asked: How often must the jacket be treated to remain waterproof? Sep 24, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Technically, the built-in Hydratex liner provides the waterproofing for the REV'IT! Melville Jacket, so additional wax treatments are not required.

The waxed cotton outer shell does aid in water repellency, but it is mainly used for its aesthetic value.

If you wanted, you could apply a coating of Martexin wax once a year, prior to the rainy season. However, it is best advised to allow the jacket to break in naturally.

SimonL: Not ever.
The exterior of the inner jacket behind the mesh is constructed of a plastic/rubber compound that sheds water like a duck. The inner jacket is very stylish and can be worn on its own as a destination jacket.

I'm a fairly thin, tall guy who normally fits euro sizing quite well. However, in the video you mention that this coat is more of an American sizing.

spuder: I am 6 feet with a 44 inch chest, and 205 pounds and I went with the XL. It fits well, but I like a little snug to a little loose. This is definitely loose on me. I'd go for the L with Tall. (Note they don't have all the colors in the tall options). Oct 15, 2012

A shopper asked: I'm looking to get either the Melville or the Oxford. Is the sizing, fit, and length the same as the Oxford?

Anuj P: I have not had experience with the Oxford .. but seems like they are exactly the same size. I actually wished Melville was just a tiny bit longer for that vintage Barbour Jacket look .. never thought that it was long .. just my opinion .. im 6'0'' exact though. Dec 11, 2013

With the REV'IT! Mellville Jacket there's not gonna be any surprises in the cut, more of a European but standard type cut here from REV'IT. Now when we think about the positioning of the Melville, it's that classic design, the outer shell actually is waxed cotton. But the interior has a non-removable, HydroTex lining for waterproof breathability.

This style is a very classic motorcycle riding style, and the exterior being waxed cotton really gives it that feel as well as that look in the way that it hangs on your body and that throwback style. Four main pockets, they're water resistant not waterproof and very subtle branding here from REV'IT. Two colors available. There's the black. There's also that olive brown color as well. We're using snaps wherever we can here on the Melville, up near the collar, these snaps all the way down. We do have YKK zippers throughout. High-quality materials.

The nice part about this jacket if we look at the Mellville jacket, it's hard to tell that it incorporates armor. Knox CE-rated armor in the shoulders as well as the elbows. You can always upgrade the back as well. Now breaking it down, you're gonna see when I open it up rain gutter construction, big YKK Vislon zipper that goes down. This is actually from REVIT. This is removable. It is a keychain that comes with it. But notice the big zipper pull, a few subtle yellow elements that just add some flavor to it, and if we open it up, high quality, quilted thermal liner.

Now the Melville's gonna be a step up from the Brera in the new REV'IT City Urban line, but from here you'd really step into something like the Spectrum which becomes more of a technical touring coat. So from this city inspired, urban look the Melville is the top of the line. The thermal also has a collar on it, and if we look past it, you're gonna see the silver behind it is that HydroTex G-liner. And then we have fully functioning pockets on the inside as well. You also have cinches down here along the waistline to really ratchet it down.

There are clean lines that come down along the shoulders. You can see that major belt that comes around right along the mid-section to cinch it in and give it that classic look. Turn backwards for me. The only REV'IT branding here besides the subtle REV'IT embossing on the snaps is gonna be on this anthracite reflective panel on the back of the collar. It does say REV'IT but again, for this type of rider, this is a great looking jacket on or off the bike. And that's really what it's designed to do.

So remember, two colorways, touring cut here, no surprises.
