REV'IT! Women's Ventura Jacket (Size 42 Only)
Got this jacket in silver/black for my riding partner after long search. Good manufacturing quality, features and durability (my input). Looks great, a bit heavy with all layers installed (her input).

Realistic lady rider fit. Ventura gear is fantastic!
The Ventura has a great fit for all female shapes,unlike a lot of ladies gear. When looking for gear I found sizes all over the map and unless your a small or petite rider it is hard to find gear. The Ventura fits well in bust without restrictions. It has many vents and I love the comfort of this jacket. The gator comes off allowing alot of venting. I was concerned about Velcro grabbing my hair but it's not an issue at all. There is alot of room to adjust the waist and fit to individual shape. I don't usually do this but I hope it helps the next rider...I'm 5'4 was 180 at picture, D bust and carry weight upper body. This makes it hard to fit across shoulders in many brands. The Revit Ventura size 46 fit much better then the new sand especially if you are top heavy. I have room for a hoodie under it also. The waist cinch allows for a great fit. I like the hand warmer pockets in this and extra storage that the new sand lacks. I could hardly get my full hand in the sand. Ventura pockets are much more practical and still feminine. If you can find this jacket grab it before they are gone. I rode in high winds making 5 degrees feel like minus 3, while wearing a tee shirt only but had all linings in. I was very warm. My daughter fit size 38 at 110 lbs but 5' 6.5 tall and adequate room for a hoodie under it. The materials seem very durable. Shoulder and elbow armour is very comfortable. Only downside is Revit only has foam back. Upgrading to seesoft is a must for backplate. Revit needs to keep the Ventura around. I bought 46 pants and the charts a bit off. Awesome pants and very comfy. My hips are 40" could have purchased 44, 42 would have fit hips but currently would have been too snug at waist. posting pics, hope it helps other lady riders!

Fantastic jacket! Great fit, great features!
A fantastic jacket for the woman adventure rider. The double liner (seperate waterproof and thermal) combined with the venting make this the perfect jacket . The fit, style and comfort of the jacket are ideal. We recently completed an 18 day tour of Namibia. The jacket was perfect!

protective, comfortable, good looking
I've been researching new gear for at least 6 months. I've worn this gear on 2 separate 1/2 day rides. The fit feels great overall. I normally wear an 8 petite (top & bottom). The 40 fits better than the 42 in the jacket. The 40 short pants fit great on the bike, although when I'm sitting at lunch, they feel snug. The length is excellent. With all the layers in, my Gerbing electric jacket fits well underneath and in 40 degree temperatures is comfortable without being turned on. The sleeve length is perfect. It feels great on and off the bike. I haven't tried it without all the liners in, yet. I believe this gear is the perfect combo of protective (I upgraded the back pad & hip pads), comfortable and good looking.

LOVE this jacket
I was dubious when the sales associate at the Revzilla Boutique handed me this jacket to try on, but it is perfect.
The venting is fabulous, and it really isn't European cut like I thought it would be. THe sleeves have good length to them, and I like the zipper and velcro closure.
It is very easy to take the liners in and out, and the waterproof liner comes right to the end of the sleeve, unlike a few other jackets like this I've had.
The liner and outside pockets are truly waterproof, and the insulated liner is actually warm. I rode highway speeds down to 50 degrees this weekend, and didn't feel the need to break out my heated liner. The adjustable collar is a useful and well executed feature.
I've ridden nearly 1000 miles in the jacket so far, and I have zero complaints. I hope we will spend many years together.

Sadly, there is no way for women to shop for high quality gear at a brick and mortar store (at least in the greater Seattle area). However, when you are ready to purchase online, I highly recommend Revzilla, and more importantly, this jacket. The difference in quality is worth every penny. This jacket is very light and wears like a dream. I've been enjoying wearing it without the collar in hot weather as the air really reaches your back and dries out the sweat. I've worn it on days where I started out with every layer and by late in the day was down to the minimum and very comfortable. You won't regret your purchase.

Finally a great ADV Jacket actually built for women
I've had other jackets which claimed they were womens' cut but were actually just sizes smaller from the men's cut. after getting this jacket i fell in love with it! it fits well and looks great. i was a little skeptical about the breast vents, but when I had them open the air circulated around to my back. The venting is wonderful. I am very happy with this purchase. It's worth the money to have something that fits right.

I've had this jacket for a few months now after receiving it as a Christmas present. It's only seen chilly weather, but it's been great for laying a heated jacket underneath the waterproof liner. I'm very much in love with all the pockets and it's a great fit. I'm a little worried that it'll be a bit big in the summer when I'm no longer laying, but seriously, you can't have it all. Overall, I'm absolutely in love with this jacket, and can't wait for our 5 week cross country road trip this summer to really work it through it's paces. :)
