REV'IT! Legacy GTX Ladies Jacket Review

After plenty of clamoring, female riders are getting more of their due this Fall from REV'IT. With the release of the REV'IT! Legacy GTX Ladies Jacket, the long-distance tourer and everyday commuter now has an all-season all-weather option that will perform excellently hot-to-cold. Packed with a feature set that rivals the best from any other manufacturer on the market, the brand new REV'IT! Ladies Legacy complements the ADV-focused Ventura combo as seriously technical pieces that are designed and cut exclusively for a woman's curves and contours.

Check out our REV'IT! Legacy GTX Ladies Jacket Review:

The REV'IT! Legacy GTX Ladies is built from a chassis of PWRShell 750D and 500D, with 1000D ripstop Cordura in impact areas. All of these fabrics are treated with a Teflon DWR coating which assists in beading up water. Of course, your true waterproof breathability comes from the bonded Gore-Tex membrane that will keep all precipitation out but allow perspiration to escape through, keeping you cool (or warm) and dry on the most torrential of rides. There is also a removable quilted thermal liner that is full sleeved and can be taken out when it's warmer. There are intake vents at the chest and under arms that feed the rear exhaust vents for a solid degree of airflow in hotter riding scenarios.

For protection, there is ladies-specific CE rated Prolife armor at the shoulders and elbows. The EVA foam backpad can be upgraded to the Knox TP2 CE Back Protector or the molecular-level SAS-TEC Back Protector to amp up your safety. There are ample adjustment possibilities, with a multi-position collar, and cinches at the waist, upper arms, under arms, cuffs and hips. Some further niceties of the Legacy include waterproof cargo stash pockets, hand warmer pockets, inner pockets, a hook-and-loop lockdown collar system and a connection zipper to attach this jacket to the REV'IT! Legacy GTX Ladies Pants. Overall, the long-distance tourer and everyday commuter will be very pleased with the feature set offered here.
