REV'IT! Eclipse Jacket

Brittany- Gear Geek

The Airwave 2 Jacket is no longer the main contender for REV'IT'!'s summer lineup, which is moving into a new phase with the REV'IT! Eclipse Jacket.

REV'IT! Eclipse Motorcycle JacketWith Knox Flexiform CE protection at the shoulders and elbows, a pocket prepared for upgrading to the Seesoft CE-level 2 back protector, abrasion resistant mesh and polyester 600D on the outer shell, and a reflective REV'IT! logo on the back, the Eclipse is as packed with protective features as it is creature comforts. Ventilation panels at the chest, back, and sleeves allow full airflow to the upper body. Adjustment straps are located at the hips, upper arms, and cuffs to allow for the perfectly tailored fit. A double jeans loop has even been incorporated into the jacket so you can easily attach it to REV'IT! riding jeans.

The Eclipse Jacket will certainly be a star of the REV'IT! summer line.


REV'IT! Blake Air Jacket

Just when I felt like I was caught up on the final releases of 2016, we’re starting to see 2017 products come across our desks already. Thankfully, the first jacket I am getting a chance to announce isn’t “more of the same” - it is actually something I’ve been hoping there would be more of! The REV'IT! Blake Air Jacket is the new “hybrid” offering from REV’IT!, and I am genuinely excited for it.

REV'IT! Blake Air Motorcycle Jacket - FrontIf you’ve had your eyes on the industry for awhile, you’ve probably seen half-mesh / half-leather jackets before, but they are few and far between. The REV’IT! Ignition 2 comes to mind as a beautiful example of this style jacket. Considering how hot leather is in the height of summer, I never understood why more of these jackets didn’t exist! Well, REV’IT! has taken a mix of MotoGP and blended it with a touch of “city”, and here we have the Blake Air - an awesome mix of 3D Air Mesh and Monaco Performance cowhide.

REV'IT! Blake Air Motorcycle - BackIn addition to a full complement of CE Level 2 SEESOFT armor in the shoulders and elbows, you’re getting a slim, performance cut jacket with full ventilation panels at the chest, back, and sleeves, while remaining reinforced with a strong leather backbone. Just to boost the seasonality of this jacket, REV’IT! also included a detachable thermal liner. What stands out to me is the tasteful mix of race-inspired details with the casual, understated zip-up jacket styling. The knitted collar and cuffs, hand-warmer pockets, and lack of any loud branding make this a great choice for “around the town”, but the excellent construction, articulated elbows, shoulder sliders, and highly-effective armor package makes this jacket no joke. Most importantly, you’ll have the added strength of leather in a jacket that is actually appropriate for truly hot weather - and that is a lot more rare than you’d expect!

REV'IT! Blake Air Jacket Review:

I for one can’t wait for this jacket to hit the shelves, because this will be my go-to recommendation for someone who’s got their eye on leather but does most of their riding during the warmest months of the year. Its mature styling will make this one an easy sell to riders of all different age groups and styles. We’re glad REV’IT! will have this one in its line-up and you should definitely check it out when available.

Get out and explore!

These rugged and stylish gloves merge the best of performance, comfort, and style. The retro look comes from the rusted cowhide shell which offers that vintage vibe that is tough but also supple. In the safety department, the Palmer Gloves are packing visco-elastic knuckle guards, PWR|shield knit and Temperfoam in the palms, and are sewn together with their incredibly strong PWR|shield yarn.

New this Summer from REV'IT! are the REV'IT! Sand 3 Gloves! The Sand 3 gloves will be adding some additional pazazz while building upon the well renowned features we love from the Sand Pro Gloves.

REV'IT! Sand 3 Motorcycle GlovesThe goatskin drum dyed air stretch mesh gloves combined with the tri-fleece liner will make the Sand 3 gloves a perfect combination for those days in the dirt as well as those long days on the tarmac. The features on this bad puppy will be similar to the Sand Pro Gloves with a few stylish updates. The TPR ventilated knuckles, thumbs, and fingers provide great protection and comfort for those hot summer days. Your range of motion will remain open while the protection keeps you ready for whatever might come your way.

REV'IT! Horizon 2 Jacket

Following a strong tradition of affordable and light touring/commuter jackets, REV'IT! will be releasing the Horizon 2 Jacket for Spring 2017.

REV'IT! Horizon 2 Motorcycle JacketThe REV'IT! Horizon 2 Jacket has an outer shell that offers a combination of a few key REV'IT! features such as their Hydratex waterproofing technology, both 500D (PWR) and 1000D (Lorica) material, a thermal liner, and Fidlock magnetic fasteners for its large chest ventilation panels. This Horizon jacket will also provide REV'IT!'s updated tour fit, which is a bit more tailored than it has been in the past. Another big update to keep in mind lies in the CE protection that this jacket offers. The new REV'IT! Horizon 2 jacket provides their new SEEFLEX level 2 CE protection at the shoulders and elbows. It is also prepared for the CE level 2 SEESOFT back protector.

REV'IT! Horizon 2 Jacket Review:

For a light touring jacket such as the REV'IT! Horizon 2 Jacket, it certainly provides a number of great updates while still keeping the jacket at a much more affordable price.
