REVIT Ignition 2 Leather Jacket Review

One of the most unique products in the RevZilla lineup has received a nice upgrade for spring 2012. The original Ignition offered a ton of versatility; a leather chassis with enormous abrasion-resistant mesh panels, inside of which you find a fully removable waterproof breathable membrane and a removable thermal vest liner.  You can get full spring-summer-fall functionality, in all weather conditions and all temperature ranges. In the dead of winter, this may not be the ideal option as the thermal is not full-sleeved, but be certain that you will get a good chunk of the year out of this sport jacket, rain or shine. With some new stylistic elements, a redesign in the Engineered Skin construction, and more subtle branding, the REVIT Ignition 2 Leather Jacket is one of our favorite pieces in REVIT's new collection.

Check out our REVIT Ignition 2 Leather Jacket Review:




The Ignition 2 is constructed of premium cowhide leather, with extremely abrasion resistant Dynax mesh paneling throughout. PWRShell 500D stretch fabric is found at the backs of the shoulder blades for flexibility when getting into an aggressive riding position. The Hydratex waterproof breathable will keep all precipitation out but allow perspiration to escape, and can be removed when the mercury rises. The thermal bodywarmer can also be removed so the air can flow when the asphalt starts to bake. The REVIT! Ignition 2 Jacket uses ProLife CE rated armor in the shoulders and elbows. This is the same top-end armor that is used in REV'IT's race suits. The EVA foam back pad is upgradeable to a Knox Advance X CE protector, the entire jacket is safety stitched and there are foam inserts on the shoulder blades for style and protection.

A big upgrade for 2012 is the ventilation on the jacket. No, that's not a joke. REVIT has decided to add zip-open intake vents on each of the forearms, similar to those first seen on the Sand Jacket. These allow air to flow up the arm and cool you down in areas where the leather might otherwise keep you a bit warm. The Ignition 2 also features stretch paneling at the elbows, a short and long connection zipper, adjustability at the wrists and waist, slit pockets, a document pocket and inner pockets. REV'IT! has dialed back some of the reckless reflective paneling, toning down the branding as well and using logos backed by reflective and more subtle piping. This jacket is also available as the REVIT Women's Ignition 2 Leather Jacket, seen at the right.
