There are few things in this world as blissful as streamlined efficiency. The right tool for the right job. The correct word for the fit a well-crafted sentence. The perfect uppercut at the most opportune moment! Ah, delightful. That is kind of how the new REV’IT! Airstream Jacket is for the power cruiser rider who wants to keep that feeling, yet with a dash of retro styling.
With an outer shell constructed of Odessa cowhide and a detachable thermal body warmer for those cooler days, the requisite utility that would be expected of a REV’IT! jacket is certainly available. Though the thermal liner can definitely be utilized to retain some heat and extend the temperature window, with substantial perforation throughout the chest and abdomen, and as the name might suggest, the Airstream is still going to be best suited for warm-weather riding regardless. Additional features include CE protectors at the shoulders and elbows that have been crafted to give off a more refined, less bulky look than some of the Airstreams contemporaries. At the same time, and as with most REV’IT! jackets, it is also able to take a Seesoft CE-Level 2 back protector (type RV), if you are looking to augment the protective features even further.
The 2015 REV’IT! lineup will see an expansive list of robust, industry-leading gear. For the rider looking to rock a warm-weather, vintage inspired jacket that is still rooted in V-Twin/Power Cruiser ethos, roll on with the new Airstream Leather Jacket.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
