REV'IT! Women's Ignition 2 Jacket
Fit and Function
Love this jacket. Bought it with the Gear 2 leather/mesh pants.
Nice ventilation, nice protection. Good looking pants/jacket set too. Plenty of protection with ventilation when you want it. Comes with both waterproof liners and core-warmth vest for jacket. I bought a large as I am broad shouldered. Fit is great with all liners removed and liners in as well. Still room enough for thermals under. Adjustable velcro & leather waist pulls in pants. The most expensive jacket/pants that I have purchased, but wish I had bought these first. The money I have spent on MULTIPLE other jackets/pants in order to get the functionality of this ONE set would have saved me a bundle! Highly recommended by this owner.

Out of All Jackets, This Is The One
Here in the Seattle area it rarely gets above 90 in the summer and I don't ride in the rain, so I wasn't looking for a durable waterproof jacket, though I hear the Ignition 2 is good with rain and it comes with a waterproof liner. I didn't want an all leather jacket because textile is more versatile and comfortable... but leather provides better protection... but I don't want to over heat in all leather... but I don't want to be cold with a super breathable textile... but I want to look sexy in leather... Then Ta-DA! I found the Rev'It! Ignition 2 jacket. It was a win-win in every way, seriously. The quality of this jacket is outstanding, A+. The armor fits perfectly in all the right areas - I feel confident and safe as can be in it. It has very little pocket space, but I never use them anyway. The neck is a bit tight, but I never snap it closed when I ride, so it doesn't bother me. I chose this jacket in Black Anthracite, though I wish I could afford both colors since the all black is sweet too. It took me a month of every day researching, review reading, and store trips to decide on a jacket. It was worth the money and I couldn't be happier.
I'm 5'3", 110lbs, and I measure 32" chest / 25" waist / 33" hips. The size 34 fits me perfectly, doesn't look boxy, and is not too short or too long in the torso. It is extra comfortable with the thermal liner in. I can easily wear a sweater under the jacket (without the thermal liner in), but it's snug. I typically ride with a sweater or thermal liner when it's 60 degrees, cotton long sleeve when it's 70 degrees, cotton t-shirt when it's 80 degrees, tank top if it reaches 90 degrees. Hopefully that gives you an idea of warmth and temperature: Note that I get cold easily an I am from Arizona, where I probably wouldn't wear this jacket.

I am 5''8, 145 lbs, and ordered a size 38 in this jacket. I also bought the REV'IT! Seesoft Back Protector Insert KN 105, and it's a must have. The foam you get in the jacket is useless in my opinion, you have to upgrade it. Other than that, I love the fit. I feel protected on the road! I only wear it once, but I already love it! I wear them with the Rev It Women's Gear pants!

well made jacket but missing comfort features
Rough edges and sharp edged zipper make this otherwise great jacket uncomfortable on long trips.

I just recently purchased this jacket after multiple searches and reviews of many others. With great dissapointment with the other shops and numerous fittings, I walked into Revzilla and tried out a few more jackets. This jacket is the best of both worlds, a leather and textile combo for those who like to ride in the cooler and warmer weather. The water/wind liner as well as the thermal vest have all come in handy. With all liners in, I feel very little, if any, airflow through the jacket. It was perfect for the days that were on the cooler side of 50 degrees because we all know its colder while you're riding. I had it out on the recent 80 degree days and removed all of the liners and opened up the sleeve vents. Nice airflow and still felt proctected and the fit was still right on. I do wish there were a few more vents but with the liners removed, the jacket was great. All in all, I am very happy with this jacket and it looks incredible and fits nice and snug. No bulky shoulders and not extremely short like i have found with other womens motorcycle street style jackets.

I love, love this jacket!!
I am completely obsessed with this jacket!! I am a fairly petite woman that stands 5'3", 120 lbs, broad shoulders and narrow waistline (26 in) from years of being an athlete. Typically, I wear XS or S depending on the brand, so I was a bit wary about sizing because Rev'It! typically runs small. Finally, I decided on the 2-tone, size 36 rather than the size 34 and I'm so glad I did. It fits perfectly!! With all layers zipped in, it's snug but I like that because it prevents cold drafts from sneaking in on those chilly days. I have actually worn 3 extra layers underneath (base layer, t-shirt, and zip-up) when I was in Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park in September and I didn't feel too restricted to where it would be uncomfortable or unsafe to ride. Like I said, I like my gear to be snug on chilly days. If you happen to have a significantly larger waistline, this jacket may not be very comfortable with all layers zipped in. With the waterproof layer, I stayed dry in a 40-minute, complete downpour. With the layers removed, it's still a superb fit for me....obviously, there's a bit more shoulder and arm dexterity. There's adequate ventilation on those hot days. This really is a beautiful and extremely well made jacket. I wouldn't think twice about getting another one if I ever needed it, but I know I will never have to because it will seriously last forever. I also purchased the upgraded back protector. Rev’It! rocks!! You won’t be disappointed with any of their products.

Quality, good looking combo jacket
I bought this for its leather protection, and mesh air flow. It looks good and feels good on. I wish I bought a size larger. I am about 5'9" 135 lb. Like Kat in the video., I spoke to a sales rep and they recommended size 38. It doesn't leave room for layers underneath. It's better when you remove the vest liner and rain liner. I have a very skinny neck but the collar feels tight in the riding position. I also.have the Gear 2 pants and when zipped together, feels like it pulls in the riding position. There is no back protector,.but i wear the one I wear on the track for everyday riding. It fits fine under the jacket. The cuffs are nice to fit into gauntlet gloves with 2 buttons to change tightness. The zip arm mesh allows some air. The changing of liners isn't as fast as my other jacket... So I tend to be lazy and leave them out. The collar is comfortable. I have worn this in a 50 degree morning & 90 degree afternoon. My zipper is really hard to start, seems faulty, may need to look into this!

Great Touring Jacket- rain, water, or sun
I went on a 10 day motorcycle camping trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward this spring, and needed a jacket that I could wear to keep warm in the cold, keep dry in the rain, and could wear in the warm weather without getting too hot. And I wanted it to be leather, or at least partly leather. The Ignition II jacket fit the bill.
It rained for most of the trip, and this jacket actually kept me dry. The zip-in waterproof layer worked flawlessly, and the jacket itself helped repel the water too, so when I got off the bike, the jacket wasn't soaking wet. I could put it back on after stopping for lunch without being soggy. I zipped it into the Ventura pants (which I am also extremely pleased with) and stayed warm and dry the whole time.
I'm even wearing it now, commuting into Boston this dry summer heat. As long as I keep moving, it really don't get too hot. The venting slits on the arms and the mesh on the chest work really well.
So far so good. I really can't be more happier with this jacket. It's a size 42 and fits well with the layers in, and is a little big when worn alone. I'm a size 36 chest and a 12 waist.
