REV'IT Vapor Jacket
The REVIT Vapor Jacket is distinguished from other all-weather sport touring jackets on the market by its unique ventilation feature that is 100 percent waterproof when zipped up, yet allows direct airflow to the body when activated. The secret lies in a special construction of the vent in the z-liner waterproof membrane, which opens up all the way through to the jacket’s outer shell. This feature transforms a regular z-liner constructed jacket into a true four-season piece. Another innovation from REV’IT!’s in-house R&D department is the new height-adjustable straps at the waist and under arms, which help ensure a perfect fit for almost every body type. The Vapor Jacket is great for all year touring as well as four-season commuting!

New for 2014, this is the REV'IT! Vapor jacket. It is a true four-season jacket. There are three colors. Really, it's positioned as a four-season jacket for sport-touring and commuting. So what it means is that it has a great mix of functionality and it's going to work well in a multitude of riding positions. But it also has a baked in HydroTex waterproof breathable liner and you have a removable thermal liner, which is nice. So pulling that thermal out, opening up your vents, six-vent configuration, you're going to get great summertime coverage. But then you lock everything down and you're going to be great riding through the winter.
I absolutely love the styling of this jacket. It comes in three colors. I will call out REV'IT, that I wish you had a hi-viz version available. But if we look at it, I see the silver version on a GS rider. I see this black version on a Ducati Multistrada rider. And then, honestly, there are a lot of guys out there that, just over that $400 mark, that want a premium commuting jacket regardless of what you're riding. You could be rocking this to work, no problem.
So, we talked about the outer shell, we talked about the configuration for seasonality. I am going to call out one thing, though. The main zips here that zip down, there are your main vents on the front. They actually have the AquaDefense system and they vent directly to the body through the HydroTex shell. So, again, that's how you get that four seasons out of it. You're getting direct body venting. You're other zips, your back zips, as well as your zips here on the arm, are actually going to vent to the liner. They're going to be a little bit different. They're going to be indirect zips. And for a zipper that large on the side that doesn't have AquaDefense, again, it would be really hard to keep you completely waterproof. That's why they made that choice.
Now, when we look at it, you're going to see a mixture of factors here and the protection level is going to be beefed up. You're using ProLife armor in the shoulders, as well as the elbows and the forearms. And, again, you can always upgrade it to the Seesoft Back Protector to take it to that next level. But, again, that's going to be a big step up over what we've seen from Knox from REV'IT.
Now, a quick note on sizing, the large is spot on within the REV'IT fitment and I'm going to call it a more of a sport cut here. I think it's a nice throwing back to the REV'IT I know and love, which does a more tailored, European fit. Do I think it's not going to fit the American market? Absolutely not. It should fit no problems as long as you're using the size chart. But it has a nice tailor to it. It has a little bit of a sport articulation, great in the upright riding position, great in the three-quarter. Again, when I say sport or sport-touring, you have a lot of options to work with.
Remember, if it's over forty bucks, we're going to ship for free. No questions asked, there. Make it easy if you're concerned about sizing.
Now, moving back into the details of the jacket, let's start with the front and work our way down. I'm going to start with our main materials here on the outer shell. It's a Schoeller dobby shell complemented by a PWR shell dobby. The dobby is that texture, it's the style of weave. Again, it's going to have between a 450 and a 500 denier to it. And the nice part is that underneath the arm and on the sleeves you're going to see the PWR shell stretch. The PWR shell stretch, again, same denier, same abrasion resistance but allows you range of movement. Really nice touch. And you can see it adds some of these darts, some of these style lines here, this stitching. It pulls it all together.
Moving up towards the collar, you have your spring-loaded snap that's on a five-position adjuster. Here, REV'IT's been doing this for years. Really nice touch. Notice our collar has an almost fleece or a very soft-lined, taffeta-lined piece here at the Adam's apple and you can see that roll around the neck. When you get into inclement weather, when you get into the wintertime, you don't want a harder material that's going to chafe, especially if it gets wet.
Moving down: reflective Rev'It logo, reflective darting, 3M Scotchlite along the chest. We've already talked about the main vent configuration down here along the sides where that's going to give you the best chance to stay cool in the summertime. And notice you have your loops here for your REV'IT Hi-Viz connector vest. It can be sold separately. It's an integrated piece. This will also take the REV'IT Challenger Cooling Vest, which you can bake in on the inside.
Now, one of the other standout features here, and I'm sad I didn't mention it earlier. Here on the REV'IT Vapor is the rail system. Brand new for 2014, this is the first time we're seeing it. It's truly an adjustability and tailor factor here that we've typically never seen on a men's jacket from REV'IT. So what we have here is these rails. You have it on the inside. You have it on the backside. And what it's going to allow you to do, if you so choose to do it, is to really move this and tune in to where he's going to adjust down to make sure that the armor stays in place. You have it here along the forearm and you also have it here along the side running down along this rail system. And when I turn him sideways, not yet, you're going to see what I'm talking about. It's, again, part of the fine tuning of a piece of gear. If a piece of gear fits you properly, you buy two things. You buy focus because you're not going to be flopping around, you're not going to be feeling the fatigue of an ill-fitting garment, and you actually buy protection because everything stays where it's supposed to be when you go scootin' down the road.
Moving into my sleeve here, three position spring-loaded snap at the bicep that's going to allow you to adjust it. And then if I zip this bad boy back up again, these are YKK zips, premium zips. I'm going to zip it up. There you go, gotta line it up. Zip it up here. You're going to see now I have the ability to go the other direction. There's my velcro cuff. There's my gusset behind there that's gonna, again, give me that waterproofing aspect. Or just tie it all together really nicely. Set it and forget it cuff there from REV'IT.
If we look at the side, remember, ProLife shoulder armor. It's more encompassing, it's more premium armor. You can see how the accents of color work in here. Remember, there is that silver version. And as you move down you see the dobby fabric. You go here into your elbow, and then you move down into your armor, which again, is fully all-encompassing here at ProLife, all the way down the forearm. You are going to get a stretch powershell under the arms and you're also going to see again that rail system along the back that allows you to tie it in. And you can see how that's done there, again, giving you the ability to tune it to your lat, depending on how athletic of a build you are. Again, you can keep everything in the right place. And notice it turns back into dobby down here at the bottom. You see that texture show up again.
Love the back on this jacket. It has just enough sport for my taste to really add some character to it. Notice our two back exhaust vents that are indirect. And we talked about indirect venting earlier, the HydroTex liner. Remember, it's waterproof, breathable, it's a built-in liner. These vents, outside of the two VCS chest vents are going to allow air to come in. They're going to circulate around that liner and they're going to evacuate out from the back. Again, it's an evaporative cooling effect, less of a direct venting effect, but it's nice they gave you those extra vents here on the back. Reflectivity at the Engineered Skin, the ES logo. Again, that's using panels to tune these jackets into different body types. And then, again, you have your vents.
And then moving up, notice the collar here. Notice, you see that you have that roll at the top that's not going to chafe you. Now notice this is more of a hip-length jacket. It's waist to hip length. Again, a little bit better in the upright riding position, a little bit better in the three-quarter.
Notice the Rev'It logo. It's their tri-design. And you're going to have your reflectivity baked in behind it. Again, a lot of reflectivity here. And then come back to the front for me. There you go. Stop right there. And notice that collar stay, that loop-back that you have. Now, opening up the guts of the jacket, if we open it up, you're going to see velcro. You have your rain gutter construction. Remember, the waterproof breathability is baked in here, so you need to keep all of the water away from this main connection zipper. That's what your rain gutter does. Big YKK zip all the way down with a big pull on it to be found with your glove. Notice, quick and easy and, remember, that's a one-way zipper, not a two-way.
The REVIT Vapor Jacket also has a thermal liner on the inside. It's a snap. It is a zipper. It is fully quilted. There is a pocket built into it. Again, that's full sleeve, that's poly. That's going to get you into those winter riding months. And when you pull it out, you're going to see that there's a few other things going on here.
Inside of the collar, red fleece, tricot lining. It's going to be very, very comfortable against your skin. Basic mesh lining. If you're wearing it over a tee-shirt. Hot weather riding if you've pulled your liners out, you need to be able to get that air flow through. The mesh is going to do a better job of that. No clearing of throats. Come on, now. What are you doing to me today? And if we move all the way down here towards the bottom, you're going to see if I pull to cinch it up at the waist and then notice, on its own panel, allowing for some stretch, dual connection zippers, 360 degree zip here that's going to attach to the Vapor Pant. There's also an eight inch short connect zipper here, as well, from REV'IT.
You can make it more adventure when you go with that silver version. You can stay more sport and sport-touring here with the black version that's going to pick up a littles less dirt. But, again, a lot of options that'll even take that cooling vest.
Within the REV'IT line, your options, really, in a HydroTex under five hundred bucks are going to the Sand 2, which is much more hardcore adventure. Or you have something like the Outback, which is going to be a little bit more streamlined, a little bit less of an investment.
