Knox Lite CE certified armor is also included and a pocket for a Seesoft Type KN back protector makes it so you can ride in style and stay totally protected.

Not for Power Rangers
I'm 6'-2", 180 lbs. Very long arms. Jacket size- XL.

This jacket does not look like a motorcycle jacket, even with the armor the pads are still pretty low profile. This is good, for me, because I am afraid of being caught looking like a motorcyclist, and since I spent winter jacket money on the motorcycle jacket, I can now have both.
The "waxed-cotton," or whatever it really is, is very windproof and waterproof- The first three days of wearing this thing I was caught in the rain for about 1hr a day. It kept me dry and warm. It's very comfortable, and I think all of the rain helped it break in a little.
Since I have gorilla arms, the sleeves are just a little bit short when riding (BMW R75/6 with "American handlebars"), but that's just me.
TOP SECRET- the tags that come with the jacket have nifty diagrams of the Rev'it jackets and what kind of riding style/motorbike the fitments are cut for and, get this, the Melville has a picture of a person on a Vespa-like scooter. But I didn't let that hurt my masculine motor-man pride, because after all, this is advertised as an "urban" style jacket, and does in fact have a mellow appearance for a protective piece of equipment, and since it is a strong throwback to the 70's Belstaff, forget that scooter diagram.

There are lots of pockets, the zippers are good, the liner zips out easy and is warm, the main zipper is very strong, and the snaps are good quality. The belt, like everyone else said does feel a little chincy, but I chose to remove it anyhow as buckling a belt every time I unzip the jacket would be an extra step for fashion I am not willing to take.

The fit is a little slim, so get a size up.

Overall, this thing feels solid and looks great. Judging by the feel of the material and hardware, I feel good about this thing lasting a while and look forward to breaking it in and riding many miles into the future of motorcycle adventure. Yes, I recommend it.

Great jacket! Survived the cold and wet better than I did.
I put this jacket to the test immediately upon getting it. I found the fit to be a little snug with the liner, such that I couldn't wear anything under it than a base layer. I'm 5'8'' and wear only mediums, so going up to a large seemed risky. I suppose I'll try to shed some weight and avoid too much upper-body muscle building.

I took it out into the cold and wet with just a base layer and it worked very well in temperatures as low as 35 degrees. I haven't taken it into sub-freezing weather, but I'm confident it would work well. It also looks great andcan totally be worn out even without the bike.

Nice Look but poor durability
I acquired the jacket at the end of October of last year. I think it looks and feels great on the bike. I ride an R1200 R and it fits the look and style of the bike nicely.

The liner is very warm and the waxed cotton material is also very rain proof based on my experience.

I have not had the opportunity to test how it would handle hitting the asphalt, but I would assume it could survive at least one significant incident.

However, I cannot recommend this jacket because of durability. Within one month the stitching came out of the front left pocket when I reached in to get my keys out. Then yesterday the stitching on the back of the right shoulder separated from the body of the jacket when I simply reached up to take off my helmet.

Revzilla has been very helpful with resolving the issue, but I wanted to ensure other potential buyers received my feedback.

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.

Just like the traditional British Belstaff & Barbour Jackets
Back in the 70's I purchased a Belstaff Jacket & pover pants. I loved this set and road many miles in storms with out ever getting wet. I grew bigger and the jacket would no longer fit & I've been looking for a replacement. The Melville has filled this void and then some. The look and feel is close to the Belstaff with a waterproof wax cotton outside. In side are the big improvments such as a breathable detachable thermal liner which the Belstaff didn't have. There is also removable armor in the sleeves. I take a size large in most jackets but moved up to an XLG because I don't like tight fitting jackets.
The XLG will allow a thicker shirt to be worn. This jacket looks great off the bike as well and won't mark anything I sit against, cause the wax won't rub off like the Belstaff. For the price of the Melville , with it's improvments, you get the best of all worlds which a new Belstaff or Barbour can't come close to. The Melville also looks good with the Belstaff over pants that I can still wear.

Finally a cool jacket with proper protection
I like leather jackets and all weather jackets (Barbour, for example), but wanted a jacket that looked good and had decent protection for riding. Rev'it has several to choose from, but the Melville fits well and is a classic.
I have looked at BMW and Olympia and Alpinestars - but I am not a superbike dude nor do I think these brands look all that good. I think you should be able to find a jacket that offers a great deal of protection and still looks great.

Great style and functionality
Man. I really like this jacket. It doesn't squeak as bad as my leather jackets. You can wear it out on the town and not look like you're trying to prove something as with an old school Brando style rocker jacket, but it looks right at home with my Ducati too. I like the weight. I like the style. I like the feel of the waxed cotton. The liner zips out super easy. I wear a hoody with it most of the time to punk it up a little. My only complaint is the lack of stretch gusseting in the shoulders. My Duc has clip ons and the sport riding position has the jacket cutting into my shoulders a tad on the front. The jacket would be 5-star all around if it weren't for this little oversight. Might not be a problem for a more upright position, but I could use a little more room. Overall great buy though! I'm stoked.

A jacket that out performs the competitiors
Pros: Warm and waterproof four season comfort
Cons: Thin fabric offers little abrasion protection

The Rev'it Melville jacket does everything it promises. It is warm and windproof enough for New England nights that drop below 40 degrees. Rev'it took a classic design from the 1940's and modernized it to bring the jacket to today's standards. Something that Rev'it's competitors have yet to do.
I have worn the jacket on two hour bike rides through the twisty roads of New England's mountains.The Melville kept me warm and dry the whole time, keeping the cold wind out, and my body heat in. This is the jacket you need if you are planning to ride year long, and want to look good when you get to your destination.
If Rev'it had constructed the jacket out of heavier waxed cotton canvas and paid more attention to little areas like the belt the Melville would blow away jackets that cost almost three times more.
The Rev'it Melville offers quality and style all at an affordable price that should keep riders smiling "On Any Sunday."

Superb Style - Good Value
I have had my Rev'It Melville for 10 months. The style is impeccable. At the price point, it is certainly a terrific alternative to the high-priced waxed cotton icons such as those from Belstaff and Barbour.

There are a few quirks however that should be noted. First, as others have mentioned, the material does not feel like waxed cotton. It looks, feels and smells like a synthetic material. I had to read the label to verify that it is indeed cotton. I still have a hard time believing it.

Others have mentioned short sleeves. I have average arm length (34/35" for dress shirts) and the sleeves on the Melville are the right length for a fashion jacket. But for riding, they are a little short when reaching for the bars. However there are a few mitigating factors. First, given the style of the jacket, I usually use this jacket in fall, winter and spring, when I'm using a glove with a guantlet. Thus the short sleeve doesn't bother me. This is further mitigated by my second point. There is an inner cuff that can be extended almost an inch beyond the seam line of the sleeve cuff. Look at the picture I've attached.

The belt is a classic feature on this jacket. I think it is essential, given the blousy fit. I think the belt should have more holes. I use the very last one, and I am not skinny (6 ft., 215 lbs and 34" waist). I think skinnier guys would have a hard time cinching it tight enough. Also, there should be more belt loops. Mine comes out and flaps around from the wind when riding at speed. I intend to attach a snap to the end of the belt to secure it to itself. Now I'm using a small binder clip. Lastly, the buckle is seems cheaply made, but it works fine. A buckle-wrap like Belstaff employs to keep the buckle from scratching paint would be a nice added touch.

So far, I focused on some of the things I would change for this jacket, but haven't mentioned just how much I like it. It certainly delivers on the looks. One of my bikes is a modern-classic Triumph, and the Melville is my go-to jacket. It is very warm, too. I am very comfortable down to 50F (below that I switch to heated gear). It is also quite good in the rain. Overall I am very pleased with the Melville jacket.

Is this product actually abrasion resistant or is it just providing protection to the armored areas?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: All motorcycle jackets have resistance, but this is not as good as leather. It's basically for sport touring jacket for colder weather and I put the emphasis is on the touring and not on the sport.
Is the belt removable like on the Oxford? Love the jacket, not the belt.
A shopper on Mar 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
How often must the jacket be treated to remain waterproof?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does it work for cold temperatures? Around 15 Fahrenheit. Short rides. (10-20 min).
David G on Jan 18, 2016
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.
A shopper on Jan 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
main zipper two way?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No the main zipper is one way.
Note: The zipper is of very good quality.
Can patches be sewn onto this jacket since it has the hydratex liner permanently attached?
Eric S on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hydrates liner is there as a separate layer below the waxed cotton outer shell. So you should be able to sew patches onto the outer shell without a problem. I'm also thinking about doing so. The only thing is that you should be careful to make sure that you are sewing the patch onto the waxed cotton outer shell only, and not the hydratex liner which is just below.
Hi, I looked at the video and found out that the model on it is a little different from the model on the photos, the zipper under the chest pocket is gone and the belt mechanism is different.
Would like to know which model are you shipping at this time?
Thanks.

Juan
Juan G on Apr 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My jacket looks line the one in the picture with no zipper under the chest pocket.
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.
Is the belt removable like on the Oxford? I love the jacket, but not the belt.
Christopher E on Mar 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This answer was provided to us by a customer that wasn't able to post the answer personally "The Rev'it Melville coat has a belt that can be used as a belt or removed, or tied off in back out of the way. I hope this helps. I think the jacket works great in all but the hottest summer climate."
What would the abrasion resistance on this one be compared to a D600 textile? Is there anything one can do to beef up the abrasion/slide resistance on it?
Wishal R on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's basically a sport touring jacket for colder weather and I put the emphasis is on the touring and not on the sport.

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.
