REV'IT! Sand 2 Hi-Viz Jacket
Fantastic All Season Jacket
I can't say enough good about this jacket. I mostly ride ADV styled bike that sit me pretty upright. Previously I've had a Hein Gericke (don't remember model) and most recently an Aerostich Falstaff (a waxed cotton version of the Darien). So, I've moved up a generation or two in jacket design. And what a move up it is. I really find no fault in the this jacket. The protection is great in every way. It does take a little while to change configurations, i.e. put in the rain jacket, take out the insulated jacket. But, the versatility it affords is worth the 5 minutes it takes to reconfigure, and it sure beats carrying the extra gear that would be required do all that this jacket does for me. I'm still waiting on my size of the CE back protector to show up in RevZilla's stock list. I ordered the wrong size back protector when I ordered my jacket (read size/type chart carefully). But I returned it for full credit and am waiting for the right size to come into inventory. I would recommend this jacket. It's awesome!

This jacket fits very well, I'm 6'1" and 210lb. It's a very comfortable and highly visible jacket. There is a great deal of pocket storage available and the protection, albeit without the backplate, feels great.
I also own the Sand 2 pants and they look and feel great together. The jacket is year round, but I would not recommend in temperatures in beyond the high 80s. For this, I would recommend a proper summer jacket with better airflow. Having said that, If I had to choose between a summer jacket and the storage, coverage, and wonderful liners that provide insulation during cooler months, I would choose this jacket.

A perfect fit...
I have to admit, I tried this jacket on at a local Rev'it dealer who had my size medium, but not in the hi-vis version. It was the best fitting jacket I'd tried and this specific model had slightly longer arms, which is what I needed. The fit is so good, that I forget I'm wearing it while riding, something I can't say about any jacket I've owned before. The price point isn't low, but it's worth every penny. Waterproof, breathable, two liners. After owning it three weeks, I just picked up the Sand 2 pants as well.

The Rev'it Sand 2 Hi-Viz Jacket is best jacket I have ever owned
I recently purchased Rev'it Sand 2 jacket, Rev'it Airwave overpants, and Rev'it Sand Pro Gloves from Revzilla. These are the best fitting gear I have ever owned. Been riding for 35 years. The Customer Service at Revzilla helped me pick everything so there was no sending back. I called many other online sellers and Revzilla helped me out the whole way. Will be buying again what ever I need from this company. Did a simple vid on my purchases on youtube at "Padre Prepper"

First ADV jacket... Well worth it
This jacket is awesome. I had to get it exchanged due to it not fitting.I'm 6'1 and 205 lbs size XXL. I used this jacket in the winter in 20º weather for a couple of weeks and this jacket sure holds up I could have gone longer but my hands couldn't take it for more then 1 1/2 hrs . I wore it recently in a downpour and I swore that when I got home I was going to be soaked but guess what I was completely dry underneath, the jacket was really soaked. The color is great and the style is nice. The only thing I don't like about it are the big front pockets. I'm curios to see how it will be in the humid NYC summer season.

Great jacket with tons of built in flexibility
I'm 6'4, 185lbs with a 39.5 inch chest. I ordered the L and XL so I could try both on and compare because I was worried the L would be too short in the arms and waist and the XL being too baggy in the arms and body with the liners out. My initial concerns were almost right on the money, but I knew I would probably have an issue finding a coat that fit perfect considering I'm tall and skinny. However, everything else about this coat is exactly what I was looking for. Great ventilation with the liners out and the straps on the body and arms when I pull them all the way in allow for a snug fit even with the XL. With the liners in and sweatshirt, I simply let out the adjustment straps and still have enough room while maintaining a snug fit. I initially was going to keep the L, but ended up going with the XL bc the coat has so much adjustment and I upgraded the back armor which is thicker than the foam pad that comes with the jacket. The L was just a little too tight with the liners in and a hooded sweathsirt across my chest area and armpit area. I looked at a lot of jackets before this one, and none of them had everything I was looking for except this one. This jacket is plenty warm down into the 30s and has just the right amount of hi viz where it still looks great. I use this coat for commuting back and forth to work and weekend trips.

Very well made with attention to detail
Just received the jacket and haven't had a chance to ride in it yet. I will say the construction quality is top notch. I'm 6' and 255 lbs. and it took a 3X to get the right fit. I have a 5 year old REV'IT Sirocco jacket in 2X that still fits so if you have a bit of a gut be prepared to go up a size. I like the combination of black and Hi-Vis. Great visibility without looking like a glowing banana. I'll use it on my Harley dresser and my GS Adventure.

This jacket far exceeds all expectations.
I love this jacket! It fits perfectly, it's comfortable, and it's functional. The hi-viz trim is a great safety feature. This is definitely the best jacket I've ever owned, and I've owned many. It fits a bit on the small side, so if you normally wear a size large, you should consider buying an extra-large.
