Reviews & Questions
so you understand where
my perspective comes from:
I am 30yr old male.
5 foot 7 inches 184lbs.
From: Washington state.
The temperatures ranged from 50F to 88F. I was caught in one rainstorm the other times there was a lot of sun and humidity on some days.
I have used this jacket for about 3 months now.
I feel after this much time I can give an accurate review.
My chest measurement is 40inches, my waist is 39inches”
Size 52 FITS PERFECT! I feel very protected and it gives me a feeling of invincibility. I ordered the 50 at first but with the recommendation of Revzilla staff, Andrew, he said because I was going to add a chest and back protector I could move up to the size 52. The other two jackets I had used extensively are the Icon Contra TEXTILE MESH jacket, and the Dainese Racing Leather Jacket. In fitment the Galactic is very similar to the Dainese Racing Leather but not as skin tight. The jacket, as explained by Anthony in the videos, is a sport oriented cut. This means that it will not be skin tight like a proper racing leather jacket. When in the upright riding position on my Suzuki GS500 it was very comfortable. I would only feel tightness if I stood up or tried to stretch my arms, obviously this does NOT MATTER because the only position it should be judged upon is the riding position. DO NOT judge a jacket if it’s tight when you are walking around. The jacket is meant to be in the riding position not talking to people at bars or the bank.
The air flow is somewhere I think this jacket lacks. Remember you can buy a COOLING VEST INSERT to incredibly increase ventilation. Compared to perforated leather jacket or a textile jacket this lacks airflow. It is not incredibly bad but I can imagine in 90+ degree humid weather, such as California or dry heat such as Arizona, it would be uncomfortable at anything below 25mph. For my weather in Washington though it was completely fine. I bought the jacket for protection and the airflow was sufficient. I only had an issue in stop and go traffic. Anything about 20-25mph and the jacket had average to above average ventilation. Remember any jacket will be hot in stop and go traffic no matter what jacket. I would definitely buy this jacket again.
The jacket performed perfectly. I bought it exactly for those times I would be in Seattle and it would rain. One day I put the waterproof liner in and I got caught in a huge downpour. Every part of my body was wet except my upperbody and helmet. I would like to add that even in the rain I got airflow. It did not feel like I was in a rubber suit sweating. It was comfortable and warm.
The build quality is great! There are many fine details Anthony covers in the video review. Suffice it to say I did not think this jacket was lacking in anything here. It was above and beyond what was necessary. There are plenty of pockets, you can add back protector, it is waterproof, and with the separate cooling liner you could even make this jacket usable in very hot weather. One thing I did not like was that the neck liner on my jacket felt rough. It is mentioned in the video it is supposed to be soft but mine was rough. After about 2 weeks riding it though it became softer. It was a not an issue after 2 weeks. My riding conditions have been 45 deg. F to 88 deg. Fahrenheit and the jacket has been great. Around 50 degrees, I just close the zipper and my body feels nice and toasty. At 75 degrees or up, I just open the zipper a little.
Overall, I really like this jacket. All the functions advertised by Rev’it are true to their words and I'm glad I chose this jacket my guilty pleasures jacket
The liner does its job and keeps out rain and wind on cooler days but you will have to layer well if you want to use it as a 3 season jacket. The jacket zips right in with the Revit Gear 2 pants.
The over all build quality is really good, and in the short term is holding together no issues to speak of. I think it is worth mentioning that this zippers on the sleeves have tension on the tab so that they will stay put while your riding, a feature I really enjoy. In white it does keep the sun off you a little better however keeping it clean is also more difficult.
The waterproof liner works very well and I have been through a few storms and it works great. Obviously it's still a sport-cut jacket so it may not protect all the way down your waist depending on how long your torso is, but still a great option for when you know it's going to be a wet out. You will definitely want to zip and button the liner all the way up otherwise your chest will be wet from the chest zipper. Have everything properly secured and you will be weatherproof.
Two issues with the jacket. First is air flow. This is definitely a great jacket for 3-3.5 seasons for the reasons mentioned above. However since it is a full leather jacket with very little perforation, it still is a little uncomfortable at anything above 80 degrees or so. Even when moving at high speeds, it doesnt flow quite enough air. I personally would keep a backup mesh jacket or something around if possible. It's not that it is completely undoable, as right now I ride an hour every day two and from work, but it could use a little more air flow. Issue two is build quality. The product is great everywhere so far except for the sleeves. The zippers so far have held up great, but the button clasps and the loops inside the sleeves holding the liners are very weak. The buttons and loops have all ripped out and did so within the first two weeks. I remember them happening when I turned to check for traffic and the right side loop and clasps snapped off and the button flew across the bike. Maybe I just had a dud, but this is concerning.
Overall, this is a great jacket and if you're looking for a lot of features and a sort of all in one jacket, I highly recommend this jacket (assuming the buttons and loops were a one case thing).
Performance in hot weather is good--ventilation feels lacking only when you're at a stoplight or sitting in stop-go traffic like I have here in Hawaii. Thanks to my ZX-6R, I'm typically in supersport riding position and when I get the jacket sitting just right, I get some airflow in through the sport collar and out through the mesh back panel, which cools the sweat on my body creating a sweet feel of awesome relief.
Jacket is really awesome for every-day riding. Two outside pockets with YKK zippers that slide behind a leather flap provide great personal storage along with three pockets with zippers integrated into the inner-mesh, I've fit my HTC One M8 with an Otterbox cover in one of the inner pockets--roomy!
Protection is adequate with leather and CE-1 rated plating in all the right places. I opted to also purchase the Seesoft Back Protector Type RV to provide me additional CE-2 rated protection for my back and spine. This brings the total investment up but when you're investing in keeping yourself alive and away from pricey hospital bills, I think this is the cheapest form of healthcare!
Styling is great and I often get positive comments about the jacket (I bought the white leather). It is a little more work to keep clean but it helps me stand out more, looks great, and I'm able to guilt myself into maintaining the jacket easier so that the leather lasts longer and I don't look like a lazy dirtbag. Win-win!
Overall, great product. Would highly recommend. Leather can be hot and "inconvenient", but I'll take sweat and inconvenience over hospital stays and road rash any day!
No problems. about 4k miles on it. No wear. I was worried about the zippers. No problems.
I originally bought a Racing Leather Jacket size 50 - it was way too small. Next was a Racing in size 52, a little too big and I also found the jacket's features were budget for the price (i.e. cheap zippers).
So I tried the Galactic in 50. Fit nice in the shoulders and chest, little loose in the arms and gut area (I wanted a tighter fit). What I really like is the versatility of this jacket. Cold, put the liner in and wear a warm base layer and you're fine. Warm, remove the liner, and let the air flow. This jacket will get a lot more use than either a full leather jacket or dedicated mesh jacket. Two knocks 1. is the cheesy Rev'it name on the arms and back, I wish the jacket was a little more low profile and 2. The stomach area is too loose for a sport jacket.
Plus the design and style of the jacket are very appealing.
I live in Australia and I am looking for good quality summer jacket. We often have temperatures in high thirties degrees Celsius during the summer . Will this jacket be cool enough during AU summer to ride or I should look for something lighter?
I have the Black/White version of this jacket that I wore throughout the Texas summer. The temps here are similar to what you have mentioned. The first 5-7 minutes of your ride are cool because you have a micro-climate inside the jacket (granted that you started off cool). After that, it matters how much stop and go traffic you have. My rides were mostly 20 minutes or less with a 50-50 split of stop-go and highway speeds. I would try wearing a cooling vest if your ride is longer and you have decent speed (35mph/55kph or faster) and you don't have too much humidity where you live.
My temp range for this jacket has been -2C to 40C. For the really cold days, you can wear a base layer and really no worries. The supplied inner liner works well down to about 7-10C
At some point, you will need to decide if you want the additional protection of leather vs cooling factor. If you're not going to the track, this is a really good choice. I love this jacket and will not go back to mesh-only even for the hottest days.

I'm 5, 7" , 38" chest, 31" waist, should get the 46 or 48? I tried a 48 Dianese Super Speed at a store and it fitted right with the back protection.
