REV'IT! Women's Ignition 2 Jacket
well worth the money!
When I bought this jacket, all I knew was I needed a gear if I was going to ride more aggressively and make the eventual move from cruiser to sport bike I had no idea what to look for in a jacket. In asking a trusted knowledgeable friend, he gave me a list of things to look for. This jacket has them all. Leather in all the right places, breathable for the heat, armor, rain liner. It's a jacket I've already worn when it's in the 40's and now already up to 85. It will be used almost year round here in southern Louisiana. It is very well constructed, and looks built to last. I have a friend with the male version and he will testify to it (down twice in small accidents and you can't even tell). I'm a bigger girl, 5'4 and around the 190 mark. I ordered the biggest size (46 I believe) and it fits amazingly, and the look is gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice. The only things I wish were different is I wish there were air holes somewhere in the upper arm area. When I layer up it fits fine, but when I use the rain liner it is tight across the shoulders. Both are minimal issues and I would buy this jacket again and again.

Does it's job and rocks it, too
Just spent 8 hrs in 35 F, 4 of them in the wet snow. This jacket killed it. I wore a merino t-shirt, light wool turtleneck, and both the liners. I was toasty all day, no water or dampness at all. The fit was form-fitting, not too snug. I bought a 36 and am 5'6", 128#. Highly recommended. If there is any concern I have it's that the elasticized bottom of the waterproof liner rides up a little. Not uncomfortably, but you have to pull it down a bit every so often.

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.
