REVIT Outback Jacket

Be ready for anything with the REVIT Outback jacket. Excellent ventilation, plenty of storage space, ample reflection panels and a removable waterproof membrane liner—all these features add up to a very competent jacket that works as well for the daily commute to work as it does for multi-day touring. On hot days the membrane liner can be replaced with the Challenger cooling vest, and it’s also compatible with the vest Connector HV for extra visibility in traffic.

REV'IT! Outback Jacket 4.7 5 35 35
Great jacket with some minor annoyances Fits really nicely; sizing seemed to be right on. A little bulky with all liners installed, but manageable. Thermal liner works as advertised. First couple of rides left me a sweaty mess at 55-60 degrees. Removed the thermal liner and am comfortable even down into the 40s. Waterproofing seems to be pretty good; wore it in a pretty steady rain and was nice and dry. Two minor complaints, both concerning the use of velcro on the jacket. First is that the storm flaps on the main zipper get hooked to the wrist cuffs quite often, making the whole operation more of a challenge than it needs to be. In addition, the inner (non-thermal) liner also has velcro on the storm flaps and it can get stuck to the inner mesh of the jacket, causing it to bunch up inside when putting it on. Neither of these are really big deals, but still mar an otherwise very solid jacket. October 8, 2015
REV'IT! Outback Jacket I received this jacket recently and have been on a handful of rides (<10, <500 miles). I was previously riding with an XL JoeRocket jacket I had received from a friend. I ordered this jacket in a large and felt it was pretty snug with all layers in. I don't think I would be able to wear anything more than a t-shirt if I kept all the layers in. However, one of the reasons I purchased a new jacket was because I did not feel comfortable in the XL JoeRocket as it was too loose for me (5'9", 175 lbs, 40" chest, athletic build). If you refer to the size chart for this jacket, my size puts me at the upper end of a large and the lower end of an XL. So far I'm very satisfied with the large, I ride in Louisiana with the majority of hot weather rides so stripping down some layers helps the jacket fit as snug as I want without being stiff enough to restrict movement. With all the layers in, naturally the airflow is not as efficient and it is very warm. As you remove layers the airflow is very thorough with just the front and back vents open (with arm vents closed). Very satisfied with the functionality. The design and features on this jacket are all appreciable and I'm a fan of all the pockets and storage available, especially for work commutes. The jacket feels comfortable and fits well in all areas and any tightness is easily remedied by removing layers and then the fit is perfect. So far this jacket is looking very promising for 4 season riding (at least in the south, I have no experience in colder weather riding). The one negative I have, at it's my own fault really, is that when I go full tuck the front zipper scratches the sides of my tank, even just after a single ride (and yes I have a tank pad, but it's in the middle). But that's really just an oversight on my part and for my particular motorcycle (GSX-R 750). Overall, I think it's a quality product with many desirable features for multiple riding styles. Hope this helps. October 8, 2015
Jack of all trades, master of none From strictly a feature standpoint, this jacket is amazing. However, from a fitting standpoint, it's terrible. I first got the Large, and it seemed like it was too big - the cuffs went slightly past my wrists, and the armor didn't line up quite right. I went to the medium, and that fit just fine, armor seemed to line up... but when I removed the liners, suddenly I was swimming in the sleeves and the armor was loose. I could get the elbow armor almost onto the other side of my arm. Zero confidence it would stay in place without the liners. There are quite a few adjustments, but they're mostly aesthetic. The strap around your side adjusts maybe an inch or two. Nothing that is going to make a hair of difference. Some of the other snaps do help some, but not enough. And there's no way to change the armor position on the elbows. I also had some sizing problems, but that's more unique to me - I'm tall and thin (6' and 32" waist, 155lb). The Large was the right length but too long in the arms / around the chest. The Medium was too short but a good fit everywhere else (as long as you don't use the liner) This jacket is HEAVY with the liners in. Which is fine, once you're wearing it, but it probably would bend a wire hanger. I really wanted one jacket for all situations. But I'm more or less convinced at this point, after trying several similar items of clothing, that there isn't one. Better to buy several looser outer layers than to have one where the fit changes based on which liners. October 6, 2015
Great everyday jacket. This is my first Rev'it product I have purchased, I initially purchased the medium and exchanged it for a small. I am 5'-8" 165lb. 38" wide shoulders, athletic build. The medium with all 3 layers felt too loose at the shoulders pads, since the pads sat below my shoulder joint. I was afraid the protection wouldn't do any protecting. The small felt much better, I have mainly used this jacket without the thermal and waterproof liners installed. It fits great, I have used it for daily commuting, and trail rides to and from in the 90 degree heat. My supermoto track wear is by Dainese, maybe this is why I prefer my stuff snug and somewhat form fitting to ensure the protection is up against the proper body parts. The rear pocket is probably my favorite feature about this jacket, I use it to transport my lunch and a thermos of coffee to work. September 16, 2015
It is a good product, but I excpect more... it is a good product. It is confortable without the termal and rain protection, but it you put both protections it is not confortable. The pockets are not bad, but it could be more easy to access. May 4, 2015
Great jacket! This is a really nice, well fitting, comfortable jacket. I'm 5' 11", 190lbs and the size Large fits perfect, though, with all the layers in, it's snug. March 13, 2015
Great all around jacket! I generally really like Rev'it gear and this one didn't disappoint! I was looking for a reasonably priced jacket that was flexible enough to be used year around for commuting and touring, but didn't look too adventure based. This fit the bill really well. Materials are great, and the jacket feels and looks really nice. I've ranged temperatures from about 30 degrees into the mid 90's and this jacket handled it just fine! Honestly, this jacket is closer to a 3.5 season. With both liners out, it breathes fairly well, but just doesn't flow enough air to make it comfortable when it's hot. I do still keep my old mesh jacket around for the hot, North Carolina summers, but I still use this for touring in the summer due to the flexibility! I'm about 5'11", 160 lb, with a 40" chest and I got a large. Fits well and I found the sizing chart accurate. Wish that it was a bit more snug in the waste, or had the more adjustment on the waste straps though (but I know I'm skinny). With the liners out, it feels pretty loose on me from the chest down. Just be mindful that boxier cut (tour fit?). Only other complaint is that I wish the vents on the chest/back were larger. The arm vents work great! And the jacket breathes surprisingly well with the liners out, but I wished if flowed more air in the body. Overall, love this jacket! I get compliments on it from riders, and non-riders often on how nice it looks. If I had to do it again, I might buy the Excalibur (or the new Vapor) just for a bit tighter wasteline. But, I would still recommend this jacket for 4 season, touring and commuting in a heartbeat! March 13, 2015

A shopper asked: Is the exterior shell waterproof/water resistant? What happens when its 85 and you have both liners out & you just happen to get caught in the rain? Do you get soaked? I get the whole layering idea, but when out on the road & it starts raining, you may not have anywhere to pull over & install the waterproof liner, not to mention by the time you get it in, you'd be soaked anyway if there isn't an overpass or gas station near. Looks like a really nice jacket...Thanks! Jan 18, 2015

Henry S: Great question. First, IMO ain't no such thing as a waterproof jacket. You throw enough water and enough time on something and it's gonna leak.

Okay, I love this jacket. I've ridden with it in many conditions, including heavy rain and snow. Neither time on purpose. The shell is VERY water resistant. I don't usually ride with the rain liner installed (I live in CA). I bring the warm liner and that usually does the trick. The venting on the jacket is pretty good and easy to close up if the rain starts. The jacket has the usual great Rev'It fit and finish. I'm 6'0", 195# and got the XXL because I wear layered garments under, mostly ride ADV and don't want too much tightness in the jacket for ease of movement. I've had the jacket for a year and a half. It's my primary jacket and holding up well. You'll get used to the Euro-reverse zippers.

Joseph R: Thank you for your feedback, i do appreciate it! Sooo many great riding jackets, its hard to choose just one. Couple A-Star's & Dainese's I'm considering as well. Jan 21, 2015
kenneth k: The outer shell of this jacket is not waterproof. It's 'water resistant' to intermittent/light showers, but you will need to install the liner if you're travelling in ongoing or heavy rain. If it's summer and hot, I just get wet and ignore the liner. This is a good late spring to early fall jacket. The liners (two: one for water and one for warmth), are useful for extending the usage of the jacket, but they are a pain to manage if the climate is changing a lot. I typically install the wet liner first - as a wind breaker - when it gets cool/cold. I carry the warmth liner just in case (but I live in California, so 'cold' is relative). So far this year, I haven't needed the warmth liner. Jan 21, 2015

James P: It's lightly water resistant, but definitely not waterproof without the waterproof liner. I've been caught in sprinkles and didn't get wet with just the outer shell, but anything sustained or heavier than a sprinkle and you'll get wet. The good thing about the waterproof liner is that it is really thin, and can be stuffed into the back pocket really easily. I ride with the waterproof shell unzipped when the weather is threatening, that way all I have to do is pull over and zip it up when the rain is coming. Jan 19, 2015

Jon B: I may not be the best person to answer this question. I'm more of a Sunday rider. Never been in rain with this jacket although is one of the reasons I purchased the jacket. It's so versatile. Never been to warm or cold with it and love the storage pockets it has. I feel it would travel very well. Hope this helps! Jan 19, 2015

Jordan K: You can fit the waterproof liner very easily in the back pouch pocket of this jacket, as it was designed for that. I leave mine in there during the summer along with the winter liner... you have to plan for everything or the worst could happen :). Apr 9, 2015

A shopper asked: I am 6'0'' 163lbs (41 inch chest), 31 inch waist (typical pant sizing). I normally wear a M in most standard clothing. What size do you think would fit best? I am trying to decide if the M will be large enough across the shoulders, as I am concerned size L will be too baggy in the mid-section. Mar 3, 2015

Christopher V: I am 5'10" 240lbs size 52 coat and wear a 36 pant. I bodybuild as a hobby so clothes that fit are impossible to find. I ordered the 2xl and find that it fits perfect through shoulders. There is a lot of adjustment through the waist but it still is a little blousy and sleeves are a touch long. But I love the coat enough to overlook it. A fellow rider and Rev'It wearer friend of mine that is VERY similar in body type to you wears a medium. I'd recommend ordering the cooling vest also works like a charm. Mar 3, 2015

Tyler M: The sand pro pants would work well. I also found a pair of gray Icon Hooligan pants that are much more casual, jean like, with removable knee armor that I like for riding a little less intense than what the sand pro pants are built for, plus they are pretty stylish. I'd say it depends on how hard and often you ride. I have a Yamaha R6 that I ride pretty regularly and lean hard often. If this is how you ride, I suggest the sand pro pants, they will zip connect to this jacket and you can never go wrong with quality protective gear. Mar 18, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William W: Hi Jesse,

Sorry, I have no experience with the sand 2 jacket... But, I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the Outback Jacket... Absolutely love it. I am 5' 11", 175 pounds, and I have a size Medium. Fits perfectly. I usually ride with the water proof liner installed year round, and it's fine during the summer with just a t-shirt underneath and an occasional sweatshirt on those chilly nights. And during the colder months, with the thermal liner and waterproof liner, I can still wear a fleece and a heat vest underneath and STILL be comfortable. It's a little tight, but once you get moving and get on the bike, all is good. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this jacket, no doubt... I put about 8,000 miles on this jacket last year and had zero issues with it driving in all weather conditions.

Hope this helps!

Take care,

James K: I tried the Sand 2 briefly. and decide to buy this Outback jacket. I think the difference is minor, but the price is more reasonable. I bought the white one, because it looks safer at night.
The shoulder pad looks bulge when i have the backpack. I will detach shoulder pads later on.
I highly recommend this jacket for touring or the colder weather. I tried it when the temperature is around 30 degrees. it keeps me warm.
Only problem is the Rev'it touring gloves don't go with it. the wrist ares is too thick to wear them.
I'm waiting for summer to try on when things are the hot weather.

Henry S: I don't own a Sand 2, but my buddy does and we compared the S2 and my Outback (OB). The S2 has more features than the OB and my buddy thinks it's best ADV jacket he's ever owned. The fit is similar between the S2 and OB and, as always, the fit and finish of Rev'It products is spot on. I'm very pleased with my choice of the OB. It's my primary 4 season riding jacket. Fantastic performance, recently put to the test in snow/rain conditions during a challenging ADV ride on the UTBDR. No regrets on going with the OB over the S2. I saved enough to buy Rev'It Neutron gloves (also great). Feb 6, 2014

Zachary G: For me it came down to the Sand 2 and the Outback in the same size - they were a very close match for me. I think the one thing to note is the Sand 2 has a few more adjustments possible should you want a more 'european' fit by trimming up the waist area. But, as far as cut, they were very close as I recall. I went with the Outback so I could afford the higher end back protector on my budget and I slightly preferred the styling. Feb 6, 2014

Jesse G: Gotcha thanks!
Do you recall at all about the fit in the back/ shoulder area of the outback vs the sand 2? was it similar? i am assuming yes but just curious... the sand 2 is a bit snug in the back for me in my correct size. Feb 6, 2014
Zachary G: It's been a few months so I'm not 100% sure, but I do recall feeling like the Outback was slightly more "american" than the sand 2, so a little more relaxed feeling. I can't remember if that was exactly in the shoulders/back, but I would lean towards them fitting really similarly in any of the actual measurement areas, with a slightly different taper to the waist / torso...

Michael H asked: Does this jacket have a convenient documents pocket? My Firstgear jacket has this really nice waterproof zippered pocket in the left sleeve for documents. Nov 9, 2014

Henry S: No, there isn't a sleeve pocket for this (which seems like a good idea -- listen up, RevIt). The four front pockets are convenient and waterproof. More than anything, the jacket is very comfortable. The adjustable belts aren't as horsey as a lot of ADV jackets. Venting is just okay. Nov 13, 2014

A shopper asked: I am 6'5'' 230 (46 inch chest), but only a 34 inch waist (typical pant sizing). I typically wear an XL in most standard clothing. What size do you think would fit best? I am trying to decide if the XL will be large enough across the shoulders, as I am concerned the XXL will be too baggy in the mid-section. Feb 11, 2015

James K: I think XL will be a good fit. But you can always order multiple sizes and return the others, the return process is always easy. This is a good jacket. Mine is white though. have fun. ride safe Feb 11, 2015

John J asked: Do the zipper chest vents fold back once unzipped like on the sand jacket? Sep 10, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William W: Hi John,

I don't have any experience with the Sand Jacket... But, I can say that the zipper chest vents are very easy to operate on the Outback Jacket and do not have anything to folding back. You just zip down to open the front vents. Done. Nothing to fold back. It's very well designed in my opinion and they allow enough airflow to help keep cool, even on 90 degree F days. The exhaust vents work the same way, just zip down and done.

Overall, I love the Outback Jacket. I've had it now for about a year and a half and I've driven in rain and snow, cold / warm / hot days. Very versatile jacket.

Hope this info helps! And happy riding!

John J: Thank you for the detailed response. I was hoping to find another jacket that created air scoops like on the original Sand jacket. Here in Texas you may need the heater and air conditioner all in the same 24 hour period. It often is way above 90 degrees F here. I find mesh is good for short trips but actually dehydrating on long trips. Sep 11, 2014

Thomas M asked: Which jacket i s longer? This one or the Excaliber Jacket-?- Sep 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RANDEEP D: Hi Thomas
I bought the Outback, & believe its longer than the Excaliber. I have owned this for more than a year now and have used it in 25° weather and it did its job fantastically. I also wore it in summer and it ventilated nicely. I bought the Sand 2 pants also and the combination was wonderful. This was my 1st Rev'it experience and absolutely love it. You can get the expert advise by calling Revzilla. I hope my experience is somewhat helpful in making your decision.

John d asked: I currently have a Rev'It Levante in size small and it overall fits me well, albeit the elbow armor moves a little when the liner is out. I'm very interested in the Outback jacket and I was wondering if the fit/sizing is similar? I see there is only a bicep adjustment for the sleeve and I am concerned the armor will be too lose depending on size I choose. With the availability of an XS in the Outback I'm guessing these jackets are not similar in size so I'm looking for some guidance. I'm a 37-38" chest. May 11, 2015

So I may have summed it up in the title, but the Outback is the next foray from REV'IT!. It's a big step forward from the Spectrum, which was a reasonably functional four-season jacket. The Outback really now takes a flavor on the adventure side -- I'm going to call it adventure lite -- still a four-season design, six pockets, six vents, will cover you multi-season. Waterproof liner, but it's not going to be as technical as something like the Sand II. So again, in that $300 to $400 range, you now have a slightly longer than waist-length coat, which is going to be great for adventure lite, sport, sport touring, a lot of different riding styles that are going to see a multitude of conditions.

Now from a sizing standpoint. It's what I'm considering the newer style Tour fit from REV'IT!. It's not baggy. It sits on the body really well. I'd actually be a size large as well, but that's because I have really broad shoulders. If anything, my frame's a little bit smaller and I have a little bit more room to work with.

And the Outback is definitely over $39, so we'll ship for free, exchange for free. 

Now, getting into some of the nuance . . . and there's really a lot going on here. You can see that it has a nice style to it. It's not a crunchy fabric. It's using a 600 denier main construction. Then they're using what they're calling a PWR|shell wax on some of the impact areas. You see it on the back of the arm. It's just a different finish.

The other thing that stands out to me really is the new restyling. This is a dramatically different flavor than something like the Spectrum that I mentioned before, which is very much a muted or more simple style. This has four or five main pockets in the front. You have two big cargo pockets, two pockets down here. You have a larger pocket to go into. On the back you're going to see the bigger rabbit pouch along the back. So again, you're getting a multitude of new storage options here in the Outback.

Thinking about the ventilation side of things, when we get into that six-vent design, we have one and two on the front. They're going to keep you cool in the summertime. A nice long zipper that goes down each arm, you can see the way it interfaces with the wrist here. And then you're going to see two big exhausts along the back.

So again, there's a lot going on. You could see the way that they style the shoulders with a different material in the impact areas, 3M Scotchlite panels that are placed strategically, but also have a nice style to them. And then again, when we get into nuance here with REV'IT!, neoprene at the cuff, the five-way adjustable snap, tricot liner, which is going to be soft. It's nice and fleecy against your skin. 

You can see the adjustment snaps along the biceps, flex panels, back of the arm. Again, a lot of the comfort features that you expect from REV'IT! because they've been doing this for the touring community for a long time. YKK zippers, the spring-loaded snaps that don't wear out.

If we move up the arm, we see a single adjustment along the arm to be able to take in some of the excess volume. And then, again, speaking to the back, two main exhaust ports, again, to get that great air flow out of the back of the jacket. And then we're also going to have 3M Scotchlite panels that come down. And then I did mention that the sixth pocket is going to be your rabbit pouch, which sits just below this panel as well.

And I do want to make a note about the back protector. REV'IT!'s now using a new style CE-rated 2 back protector that will be the upgrade for the Outback, and that's going to be the Seesoft RV. And when you're looking at the product page at RevZilla.com, you want to look at the size that you're going to buy, and on that size chart, it should tell you what size Seesoft RV Protector's going to fit and replace the stock foam pad that will come out of the box here with the Outback. Come back around to the front for me.

Let's briefly talk about the guts here before I break it down. Notice velcro on the way down. You have a nice storm flap, this rain gutter to keep water away from the main connection zipper, which is also YKK, which is a weak point for water entry. And as I zip it down, you're going to see the multitude of liners. We have a thermal full sleeve liner, then we also have our Hydratex liner from REV'IT!, which is your waterproof breathable layer. The nice part about the REV'IT! gear is that if you're not thinking a lot about base layers, you're not thinking about mid layers, you're not thinking about your waterproofing, right off the rack in that mid $300 to $400 range, you're going to have a fully flexible, multi-season jacket that will perform well, dead of winter all the way through the hottest times of the summer, with the great air flow that it promotes, the new venting configuration. You're not having to buy anything else. So if you want an all-in-one solution, this is a great option for those of you that are going to be multi-season touring with potentially a light stretch into the dual sport realm, depending on how you are riding.

So let's walk through a couple of things that I neglected to mention. The first thing is that there are hand warmer pockets. I think that's a nice feature that REV'IT! started doing on a lot of their Next Generation jackets underneath the cargo pockets. Again, cool weather, hop off the bike, you'd be all set.

The other thing I want to mention is that there's a black version here of the Outback, and the black version goes up to sizes 5X and 6X and remains in the same cut. So for those big guys out there, you now have a great adventure option, multi-season, four-season option, that you can go to within the REV'IT! range. Now, moving into the guts. I will tell you, it'll take the Connect HV Hi-Viz vest for $50 that will attach onto the jacket.

Moving into the interior, here's my DuPont Thermolite thermal connection or thermal layer. I'm going to pull it out for you, show you how it breaks down. Snap at the top. Already done my left side sleeve, so I'm going to come over here to the right, unsnap that, and then I'm going to pull it in here. I'm going to pull out from the inside of my Hydratex, and notice my red snaps. There's a red and a black so you can find it. It eliminates you having them getting twisted when you're taking them in and putting them out. Again, it's just a well-thought out feature. REV'IT!'s been doing this long enough that they're trying to make it more simple and quick for people to change the configuration of their gear. Because remember, you're multi-season, four season, off-the-rack ready.

So, there's my DuPont Thermolite. I'm going to toss that. And as I open it up a little bit further, here's my style destination liner, which is my Hydratex. And notice I have a seven-inch connection zip built into this as well. Thermal fleece at the top... or not thermal fleece, but just a microfiber fleece, so it's not going to chafe. I'm going to take my short connection zip. I'm going to open it here. I'm going to go across the top. There'll be a single snap at the top along the collar, go to the right side. I believe I have unsnapped my left side. My right side should now be done. And again, I've unsnapped my right. If I do it, you're going to see, again, it's red, and then there's a black side. Two snaps and they're both looped. But again, so you can keep them straight, it'll be much easier. As I pull my Hydratex lining out, here's my liner. It's styled. It can be worn as standalone. It's one of the nice benefits you get here with the Outback. I'm going to pull it. I'm going to drop it. That is my waterproof breathability.

Moving into the guts, here's my seven-inch connection zipper that will go with many of the REV'IT! pants, if not all of them. It's a VISLON YKK zip, heavy duty stuff. Notice we have pockets, mesh lining meant for comfort.

And then some of the other key things I want to home in on besides the niceties around the comfort features is you have two more options. First, you have the HyperKewl Challenger vest, which is an evaporative cooling vest. Watch the full detail breakdown video that I have on these. You dunk these in water. You zip it in. You open up your vents, and basically, you're going to be able to have evaporative cooling, which for 6 to 10 hours, keeps you cooler than normal while you're riding.

The other piece I've talked about is the Seesoft RV, which is REV'IT!'s new CE-Level 2 back protector upgrade. Remember, based on the size jacket you're purchasing, is going to denote what size Seesoft RV you're going to get. Multi-layer, different plies, temperature stable, CE-rated Level 2, and this is going to replace the stock temper foam pad that comes. Notice it's even ventilated. We're happy to see REV'IT! go down this line and offer a more economical version of a CE Level 2 that's not the SAS-TEC, which they used in some of their GORE-TEX gear. So keep that in mind as you're rolling through the line.
