REV'IT! Phoenix Jacket Review

One of the most unique products in the REV'IT! lineup (and at RevZilla.com for that matter), the REV'IT! Phoenix Jacket is a truly race-inspired jacket that is going to perform excellently in hot weather aggressive sport riding scenarios. In addition, this is one of our bestselling leathers that crosses over in both the men's and women's segment as it is also available as the REV'IT! Women's Phoenix Jacket. Customer feedback is nothing but stellar on this jacket, with a couple riders at RevZilla sharing their crash stories and being extremely pleased with how the Phoenix performed. A mix of leather for protection and mesh for airflow and breathability, the Phoenix is a top pick for hot weather sport riding.

Check out our REV'IT! Phoenix Jacket Review:



Beyond the style of this jacket, which is borrowed straight from the classic racer jackets of yore, the technical features of the Phoenix really impress. The outer shell uses highly abrasion-resistant Monaco Performance cowhide, 500D and 1000D PWRShell stretch fabric for mobility and comfort, and the tightly-woven Dynax mesh that is great and flowing air but also will hold up extremely well against abrasion. The jacket is also safety stitched so the seams will hold up in a get-off situation, and REV'IT's constant attention to detail dictates that YKK zippers and spring-loaded snaps are found throughout. Internally, upgraded ProLife CE armor is used in the shoulders and elbows and the foam backpad is upgradeable to the Knox TP2 CE Back Protector.

Moving into some of the comfort features of this jacket, there is adjustability at the waist for cinching and stretch panels at the backs of the elbows that work with the PWRShell Stretch material for uninhibited range of motion in and out of the tuck position. The collar and cuffs are lined with a comfortable fabric and the liner is a comfort mesh that feels soft against the skin. There is both a short and long connection zipper in the Phoenix so it can basically be paired with any pants in the REV'IT! lineup. Finally, reflective detailing at the back will keep you seen in dark conditions. Protection, airflow, and a wicked style unseen in any other jacket are what define the standout REV'IT! Phoenix Jacket.
