REVIT Horizon Jacket & Pants Review

Consider the REVIT Horizon Jacket and REVIT Horizon Pants to be a complement in the REV'IT! lineup to the all-season all-weather REV'IT! Sand combo. Both the Horizon jacket and pants have the waterproof breathable membrane built into the shell so you're covered in all weather conditions. With the removable thermal liners, you're also covered deep into the temperature range. There is also the brand new Aquadefense system from REV'IT!, which I will get to after the video, that allows a ton of airflow to enter this jacket in hot weather conditions, but completely seals out water when it is raining out. Truly revolutionary technology.

Check out our REVIT Horizon Jacket Review:




REVIT Horizon HV Jacket
The shell of the Horizon jacket is composed of 750D and 500D PWRShell and PWRShell stretch fabrics, providing a high degree of abrasion resistance, but also allowing for movement and flexibility in active riding scenarios. Upgraded Knox CE Rated Flexiform armor can be found in the shoulders and elbows, while the foam backpad is upgradeable to a Knox Advance X CE back protector. What really makes this jacket special though, is the extensive ventilation system which borrows heavily from the Sand but also incorporates the aforementioned Aquadefense system. Essentially, these airvent panels are sealed with an external gasket when closed, but when open, they flow air to a 3D mesh panel that backs them. Innovative and effective, REV'IT again raises the bar with this technology. These intakes feed a rear exhaust panel for exceptional hot weather ventilation.

Beyond this, as with most REVIT! gear, adjustment possibilities are extensive. There are straps at the waist and upper arms with snap adjusters at the forearms and velcro at the wrist. The multi-position neck closure system allows you to set and forget, while the collar loop on the opposite side allows you to hook it down and prevent flapping if you want to ride with the collar open. Reflective paneling is strategically added throughout, and the jacket features inner pockets, handwarmer pockets, stash pockets and a rabbit pouch. Pair this jacket up with the REVIT! Horizon Pants, and you can seriously get through the harshest of both hot and cold weather conditions.

Next is our REVIT Horizon Pants Review:




The REVIT Horizon pants are the obviously ideal pairing for the Horizon jacket. They are constructed from a mix of materials; PWRShell 750D and 500D and PWRWax 500D with the Hydratex waterproof breathable membrane built into the shell. There is a fully removable thermal liner for the colder times of the year, CE rated knox flexiform armor in the knees, and perforated foam protectors at the hips. As with all REV'IT! products, adjustment possibilities run rampant with the knee armor being fully adjustable, adjusters at the waist and ankles. There are short and long connection zippers to pair this with your favorite REV'IT! jacket and the pass-through pockets also act as vents in the warm weather. Strategic reflective paneling and stretch zones round out the features on the Horizon pants.

For the serious touring enthusiast and the commuter, this combo will get you through all seasons and weather conditions. This new setup complements the rest of the REV'IT! lineup well, filling a gap for their riding community. To see everything in this release, visit our REVIT Spring 2012 Gear page.
