Quality jacket at a reasonable price
This is primarily a sizing review, as it’s 25 degrees F outside here right now, with ice, salt, and gravel on the roads, and up to ten inches of snow forecast for two days from now. For reference, my measurements are as follows: 6’ tall, 165#, and 40” chest (actual measurements). My dress sleeve length is 34”. My waist is 33” if you believe nominal pants sizing, but 35.5” by actual measurement. (Who says men’s clothing isn’t vanity sized?) I have a 32” inseam, meaning my torso is a bit long and legs a bit short for my height. I’m relatively fit, but don’t have large arms. In regular clothing, I’m normally between sizes: a medium shirt or jacket will usually fit but may not be long enough in the torso or sleeves; a large will generally be blousy around the torso. I buy tailored-fit clothing. My two other jackets, one a Tourmaster and the other a Joe Rocket, are mediums and they both fit well, but I bought a size large in the Outback, and it fits me perfectly.<br>I live in Minnesota, but my riding buddy and I tend to go south on our extended trips, so I wanted a jacket that would deal with low temps on an early Minnesota morning, but won’t turn into an oven on a sunny southern afternoon. I looked at a lot of different jackets, from the cheap to the I-could-buy-a-car-for-that. The Outback looked like a good touring jacket with the features I wanted. I also wanted some style to the jacket, and my girlfriend approved the Outback. I was a little put off by the Revzilla description of the jacket as being an American fit; I prefer a more European-style fitted jacket, as I am slender. Don’t be fooled: the Outback may be boxier than previous Rev’Its, but it is not a loose-fitting jacket. I chose the anthracite/silver, hoping to avoid the heat-trap of black, but anthracite is very dark, more so than it appears on the Revzilla site. I still prefer it to the silver, for practicality.<br>Based on past experience, I was originally tempted to get the medium, but bought the large because the Rev’It size chart recommends a large for a 39-41” chest. This appears to be spot-on; the large actually feels a bit tight with a standard shirt and undershirt under all three layers, becoming much less tight, but not loose, when the inner layers are removed. I’d also say it’s halfway between a full ¾ length jacket and a sport jacket; even on my shorter torso it doesn’t come down low over my hips. This actually works well for me, as I ride a Tiger 1050 with its upright riding position. The jacket doesn’t have gussets or a two-way zipper to provide more room at the bottom as might be necessary on a cruiser-type bike, but the bottom of the jacket is open enough to provide some extra room, and has drawstrings to close it up. I have the waist straps cinched in all the way, and also wear riding pants, so I don’t worry about cold airflow at the waist, and use an external rain suit in heavy rain. The sleeve length appears to be about perfect for my riding position, and the snap fasteners on the sleeves are just right for me in the loose position with the liners in; and just right in the tighter position when the liners are out. Warning: this jacket likely will not fit you well with both liners in if you have big guns.<br>As for ergonomics, one of the things that attracted me to the jacket was the pockets: it has five on the front, including two breast pockets, of which I will use one for sunglasses, the other for reading glasses. (Don’t be fooled by the extra flap on the right upper pocket; it’s a styling thing, not another pocket.) The four pockets with flaps all appear to be waterproof, with foldover vinyl or rubber liners. As for temperature control, it appears the jacket will have no difficulty in keeping me warm: I worked up a sweat within a minute or two of putting it on with the liners in at an ambient temp of 69 degrees F. Venting for very hot weather is still a concern, but I deal with heat better than cold, and have a mesh jacket if the forecast is for continual hot weather. I have not ridden in the jacket yet, so cannot opine on its temperature control on the bike.<br>So far I’m happy: the price was reasonable for the quality construction, styling, and features (although decent back protection should be standard}. Revzilla shipping was fast, as usual, and the video demo was helpful.

Great Jacket, Good Price.
I've had this jacket for a few weeks, and I'm very happy.<br>Perfect match with the Sand 2 pants, in style and features.<br>I'm 5'9", 170 lbs., 38" chest, and I bought a large.<br>The size chart puts me at the top end of a medium, so I went with the large. The medium fits, but was very snug. No room for any layers. Although you don't need any. I don't recommend buying a size up, but definitely go larger if your in between sizes like me. Also with the liners out, and all the adjustments taken in, the jacket still fits good, perhaps a bit roomy. That should help with airflow in the summer, so I'll consider it a good thing.<br><br>I have ridden in 35F in the rain, and was warm and dry, wearing only one base layer underneath. Just socks and some Fruit of the Loom Active Collection (think cheap Under Armour). I also wear Gore-Tex boots and gloves, a thin balaclava with a full face helmet. I have no problem fitting with a base layer plus jeans and sweater either.<br><br>The armour in this jacket is great; you don't even know it is there. It's flexible and comfortable. I've had other gear, where the armour is so bulky and stiff, I didn't want to put it on. The elbow armour comes halfway down the forearm. I plan to upgrade the back protector, but the foam is significant. It won't protect you from a sharp impact, but should provide a few seconds of slide time.<br><br>Lots of pockets. The four pockets with the flaps are water proof. Good place for you phone, wallet, and other dry items. There is also a zippered pocket on bottom left, great for keys and flash-light. The hand warmer pockets are small, but useful. There are interior pockets in all 3 liners. The rabbit pouch is not waterproof.<br><br>The tall collar and snap closure is great. Helps to keep the wind out of your jacket and helmet. There are also drawstrings at the bottom to keep wind and rain out at the waist.<br><br>The Hydratex liner can be worn by itself with or without the thermal layer.<br><br>My only complaint is the sleeves. I have short arms and the sleeves are bit long. Probably a good thing for most. Also, the velcro flaps that cover the zipper aren't quite long enough to keep it closed. It's minor. The dual zipper feature on the sleeves is really nice, but could be refined a bit.

Extremely versatile jacket for all weather rides
This jacket has it all: multiple layers for ventilation, waterproofing, and thermal insulation. There are plenty of pockets to store your wallet, phone, extra earplugs, etc., which keep things dry and secure. The redundant zippers at the torso (when inner liner is installed) do a great job to ensure each layer serves its purpose.<br><br>The protection at the elbows, shoulders, and back (which give the rider a definite sense of security) do seem to constrain movement slightly, but I expect this to subside as the jacket breaks in.<br><br>My biggest complaint about this jacket is the wrist at each arm. The intersection of two Velcro fasteners with a forearm mesh vent enclosed by a zipper makes for an overall bulky profile which isn't easily wrapped under gloves, even gauntlet style gloves. My gauntlet gloves fit around the jacket's wrists, but only after some effort. It's a minor inconvenience.

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!<br><br>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?).<br><br>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.<br><br>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!

Nice Jacket
I live in San Diego and needed a winter jacket. It was 42F this morning on my commute and I was warm and toasty with just the wind-proof liner (prob never use the thermal layer).<br><br>I'm a Rev'it fan and liked the Sand 2 jacket but wanted an all black color. The jacket looks much better in person than it did online and I am quite happy with the purchase.<br><br>For Rev'it jackets, always order a size bigger than you normally wear. I typically wear XL (6'3", 230lbs) so an XXL fits great on me.<br><br>As for Revzilla... the jacket was nicely packed and arrived on time.

Great 3 season jacket
This is my first jacket since I started riding again after a 25 year absence. I wanted something I could wear for almost all my riding, and living in Michigan, that means late March through early November. So far, I've ridden in temperatures from the low 40's (with both liners) to the low 70's (with none) and I've been very comfortable at all times. I'm planning on picking up a mesh jacket for the warmest summer weather, but I expect I can use this one into the low 80's for sure. My very first ride, late in October, was in low 40 degree weather and pouring rain, and I kept warm and dry. I paired this with the Rev'It Enterprise pants, and I can recommend those as well. For the record, I am 5'9" and 195 lbs and wear a size Large. It's a bit snug with both liners in, but still comfortable. Very good looking, to boot! I plan on buying more Rev'It gear in the future, based on the quality of this jacket and the Enterprise pants.

Great Jacket
I have had the Outback jacket for a little over a month now and have ben able to test it in temperatures ranging from 30 degrees up to the mid 70s and the jacket has performed well in all temperatures. I even got a chance to check the water-proofing when I got caught in a rain shower during the commute (it was in the 40s that day). I was toasty and dry when I got home, The few nits I have to pick are the left hand zipper (COME ON REV IT THIS IS AMERICA:)) and the thickness of the nylon the body is made from. I'm sure it will perform well in a crash but it is noticeably thinner than other jackets I've had in the past. Overall I am totally satisfied with this purchase.

This product is great. Exactly how described. It does have a slim fit, which is nice but can make it tight with all layers in. Have used on a few long trips & airflow is pretty good. Did ok in a recent 35 degree long ride but got a little cold. Pockets are great.

Jacket fits well, fits snug with all the liners in and still tight enough with all the liners removed. I get compliments on the jacket if I'm just wearing it out. Tested down to low 40F's and kept me warm as can be. Worn as hot as mid 80F's so far. I feel it may lack a little ventilation for really warm summer days, I'll find out in a couple months. I could probably remove my windshield and get some more airflow thru the jacket if needed. So far I am extremely pleased.

Excellent Jacket
I'm 5'10, weight 170 and purchased a size Large.<br><br>Perfect fit, the arms long enough and overall very comfortable when riding. It keeps warm, no matter what temperature, so I can ride as long as I want, or until my legs are frozen (the pants are next).<br><br>I went for a ride on a light rain (I though) and returned home two hours later warm and dry on top, but my jeans and boots were completely soaked.<br><br>The quality of materials and detail of construction are top notch. You feel well protected with it, great pockets in the right places, high quality zippers.

From the research, mostly on your site, I looked over a lot of jackets. This one looked like a jacket with the features and quality I desired. It looks like it will fit the bill for a good touring jacket without breaking the bank for my first non leather riding jacket. I was a police motor officer for 15 years and have always worn leather, but needed a change. Thanks for the information...

Had a Rev'it jacket before. It was built well and fit well. Don't like the huge logos so the understated style is good. Wanted an all-weather capable jacket all-in-one. Did not want to drop more than what this costs and did not want to sacrifice on style. Able to add better back armor was a consideration as well.

I see that this jacket, unlike the vapor model, doesn't have any associated pants that match. Does it connect securely in any way to any of the rev'it' pants options?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the Rev'It Axis pants. I don't even try to connect the jacket to the pants, but the jacket comes with the second half of the zipper, which you could sew onto the pants if you wanted to.
In the video, the model is listed as a 44" chest, but wearing a Large. According to the size chart, he is on the border of XL and 2XL. I am 5'11" and have a 40" chest. Is the video mislabeled or am I OK with a Large?

BEST ANSWER: I have a 44-46" chest at 6' tall. My Outback is XXL. Fits perfect with the liners in and the straps adjusted. I think the Large will probably work for you.
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!

BEST ANSWER: 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.
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.
A shopper on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hello,

Which pants go well with this jacket?

Thanks

BEST ANSWER: 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.
does this fit similar to the sand 2 jacket?
Jesse G on Feb 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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,
Will
Did anyone have a foam protector in this jacket when purchased? The video states there is a foam back pad. You can even see its outline in the video. The description says it's sold separately as an upgrade. My jacket came without any foam back pad. I plan to get the Seesoft one anyway, but if it really doesn't come with one, they should state that in the video.
Anthony L on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes mine had a foam back pad in it when I received it. It is really more to keep the shape than for protection, but it should have one.
Does this jacket have a convenient documents pocket? My Firstgear jacket has this really nice waterproof zippered pocket in the left sleeve for documents.
tass on Nov 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
That back pocket can be use as a hydratation station. Put a botlle water there?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sure, the back pocket is pretty big, but it doesn't expand or stretch for anything that's too thick. You'd probably be able to stuff a water bottle in there, but it might not be the most comfortable ride.
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.
A shopper on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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

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.
