I think I would still want to unsnap my collar even with the new feature on a hot day. I was leaning towards getting a Sand 2 but now I think I may stay with my old Sand jacket. Tell Rev'it they are making a mistake by eliminating the collar hook. It was one of the nice features that set their jackets apart from their competition.

Rev'It don't drop the collar hook on the Sand 2!!

I have a both a Sand and a Horizon jacket. I love the adjustable no velcro collar and the hook!

That's one big reason a lot of "great" jackets I look at get passed over!

It's the first thing to open when it gets warmer.

All the other improvements look good but the collar hook is a major oversight in my mind. The zipper flap staying open isn't the same thing to me.

Also Avocet they have added a snap tab at the cuff to back up the zipper on the sleeves to prevent the zipper from creeping
