Your Parisian Summer is over but you’ve stuck around and put away your mesh riding jacket. Your trusty Vespa has been the perfect tool for commuting around the arrondissement but now that it is getting cooler, you’ll need something with a little more coverage. That’s where the REV’IT! Elysee Jacket comes in. Named after the famous Avenue, this jacket is perfect for cool or cold-weather riding around any metropolis. The outer shell will help prevent any low-speed scrapes and the Knox Lite CE shoulder and elbow armor will help deflect any errant Citroens.
For the fall, the Oxford shell will keep away the chill on the way down to the cafe. When you hop off the bike, the Elysee will not look out of place in gentle society. Branding is minimal and tasteful, and the hardware is well built. The Hydratex waterproof breathable lining within the shell will help keep you dry, should you experience any precipitation, and the inner pockets will keep your belongings from being soaked.
REV'IT! Elysee Jacket Review:
Should you continue to ride into the winter months, by installing the detachable thermal liner, you will be able to keep comfortable during your ride. When the snow falls and your rides start taking place on le Métro instead of la motocyclette, the Elysee will still look just as good and be just as comfortable. It will even hold you over until the spring has sprung.
