REV'IT! Red Hook Leather Jacket
Beautiful Jacket for the price.
This Red Hook Jacket (in brown) I bought a few weeks ago has already travelled 800 miles this 2015 season as I commute daily. Great feel, finally has broken in I believe, and it just looks great. I'm impressed with the quality. My first bike and first jacket but I'm not a fan of logos and tacky coloring, so I picked this due to leather and simplistic design. I love that it has the spring liner, as it's still spring here in Wisconsin. Only thing I can really say I haven't been able to test is the underarm air vents. It hasn't been warm enough for me to get hot in it yet, but summer is around the corner. It may actually get too warm at times. Overall fantastic quality and looks for the price. Makes 200$ jackets look tacky(and most 200$ leather jackets don't come with shoulder and elbow protection).

High Quality, Not Enough Features
In my opinion this jacket fits one size small. I am 6'1", 165lbs and always wear a 38R suit jacket. I ordered the 48 and it was too small. The 50 fit perfect. The leather is great quality and tough. It will definitely take time to break in and become more comfortable. The style is great.
I had two issues with the jacket and thus returned it in favor of another model. I'm not sure if it was due to the stiff leather or the cut of the jacket, but it seemed like there was too much leather in the chest area and it would rumple up. Second, the lack of any sort of venting was a problem. It would have been so easy for them to add a vent zip on the back and perforate the pockets to allow for some air flow. The fact that it doesn't really limits the temperature range of the jacket.

Rev'it! Red Hook Jacket is Excellent!
The fit is very accurate. I wear a US size 38-39 jacket and the 48 fits great. (5'8" 150lbs.) The sleeves are a hair long, but when riding (cafe racer) they are perfect, so I would assume they planned for that. The overall jacket length is perfect.
The elbow armor is a little uncomfortable, but that may break in a little as the jacket breaks in. The jacket is very comfortable with the armor removed and maintains the same shape. I love that the thicker vest liner zips out and is one reason I bought the Red Hook over the Flatbush.
The sleeves are narrow, but that is the look, so I expected that. (If you're a thicker guy this jacket probably won't work for you.)
Everything about the jacket feels good and it seems to be made well. Zippers are quality. Leather feels good.
The brown is less orange than in the video and more of a light coffee color.
The slanted front chest pocket is big enough to easily fit my iPhone.
The only negative (and this is nit-picking) thing on the entire jacket is the stitching around the wrists rubs, but I'm hoping this goes away as the jacket breaks in. (They should have wrapped the leather over the liner at the cuff instead of stitching it at the end.)
This is my first purchase with Revzilla and they exceeded my expectations. The jacket arrived in two days with free shipping! The product videos are excellent and is why I bought here. Thanks for delivering!

I have worn the jacket for several months. I like the protection built into this jacket. It does not make the jacket feel bulky. I wish the top neck snap when not snapped shut would not hang in the breeze. It should snap when open to another snap just as it snaps shut. It breaks in beautifully and the leather quality is great. I like that there is an inner liner that slips out. No regrets on this buy.

Retro styled with modern features
I ride a Triumph Thruxton and I was looking for a retro styled leather jacket, but with CE rated protection. I tried several jackets from different manufacturers, but none of them fit me well. I'm 5'11'' 170 pounds with a 34 inch waist and a 34 inch sleeve length. Most of the jackets I tried had an American cut which was too big. The Red Hook has a more European cut, I got it in a size 52 and it fits great. The quality of the leather is first class and the craftsmanship seems like it will hold up for years to come. This jacket is comfortable to wear. I especially liked that the zip out lining was a vest without sleeves, as it doesn't add much bulk, but does provide an extra level of warmth. I probably won't use this jacket in the summer as there is no flow trough venting, but I have another jacket for warmer weather. Just a note: I went to the Revzilla Showroom to purchase this item. The in store sales clerk was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Great fit, look, and overall product
I wasn't sure what size to get, but customer service helped me out and told me what size I would be. It fits perfectly, feels durable, and definitely worth the price. A bit on the high side, but I do not feel like i overpaid at all.

It is a stylish, durable, practical and comfort fitting piece of leather. I did an online purchase, not having a true fitting but with it's description, I chose my size. It worked perfectly. If you know your true size for clothing, you can purchase this product knowing that you will get what you asked for. Also, the price tag is very reasonable. I did my research, looking at similar jackets and could not find one that compares. The fashion statement this jacket makes alone, I've seen go for 10 times the price. But, that's not what revzilla is about .... I see now. Revzilla is about making a practical piece of gear so that we can enjoy what we do, safely.
