REV'IT! Legacy GTX GORE-TEX Jacket & Pants

Continuing their absolute domination of the ADV Touring motorcycle riding world, REV'IT! linked up with GORE-TEX to make products even more waterproof breathable and utterly bombproof. The REVIT Legacy GTX GORE-TEX Jacket & Legacy GTX Pants was built for serious ADV touring enthusiasts in areas where it is chilly most of the year; Northwesterners, Canadians, Northern Europeans, I'm looking at you.

Part 1 of our review of the REVIT! Legacy GTX GORE-TEX Outfit demonstrates the applications, features and fit of this brand new for Fall 2010 gear.


In Part 2, Anthony pulls out all the armor and walks through the liner system of the REV'IT! Legacy GTX Gore-Tex Jacket and Pants.


What makes this outfit very appropriate for slightly colder climates where there is frequent precipitation is the fact that the waterproof breathability is actually sandwiched into the outer shell. Unlike the REV'IT! Defender GTX Gore-Tex Jacket where the waterproof breathable liner is removable for those blazing hot days when you want all the liners out, the GORE-TEX Z-Liner is permanently attached to the outfit. If you live in an area of extreme heat and humidity, this suit will probably not be the best choice. You may want to take a look at the REVIT! Defender GTX Jacket & Pants. The REV'IT Legacy GTX does have some venting and will do a good job if the mercury is not soaring, but I'll reiterate: not ideal for Florida.

The REVIT! Legacy GTX has a great feature set that has become par-for-the-course from REV'IT. Pro-Life CE rated armor in the shoulders, elbows and knees; a detachable quilted liner featuring CoolMax antimicrobial moisture wicking fabric; shell construction from PWRShell 750 & 500 denier with 1000D ripstop Cordura reinforcements; large ventilation zips at chest, back, under the arms, and on the legs; a ton of adjustability via straps, tabs, drawcords and snaps; a 7-way adjustable collar with a hook & loop lockdown system; and of course, elasticated stretch paneling in all the critical flex areas.

We continue to be dazzled by every step forward that REVIT takes, probably because their strides are more like enormous leaps. This new teaming with GORE-TEX has got to scare the competition, because at this rate, REV'IT! will soon be saying ''what competition?'
