    Excellent news, Guy. Happy we can help, as always. Please let us know what you think of the two sizes once you've tried them both on. I have a feeling the size medium is going to be the winner.

    Hi Anthony and Ali,

    I think I may have figured out why my Rebel size 48 jacket was so tight in the arms: I bought it from a seller in Europe. A friend of mine told me today that some manufacturers sell a slimmer-fit version of their gear in Europe, and a "fatter" version in America.

    Does Rev'it do that? Is it possible that I have a super-skinny Euro-version of the Rebel that is smaller than the same size would be in the "American" version? Or are all Rev'it clothes the same worldwide?

    Just want to say that you guys are FANTASTIC!! Husband and I just picked up his Tornado Hi-Viz jacket this past weekend and it fits perfectly.

    You guys were so helpful on the phone and shipping time was bang on. Thanks so much!! We'll post a review on your site soon.

    For anyone else who needs sizing help, my husband got the Tornado in size 56.

    He usually wears a size 48 in suit jacket, 38 pants, XL in casual clothes, and XL-XXL in motorcycle jackets. Instead of the sizing chart, we actually went by your advice on the phone and also a really helpful customer who posted that he's a size 50 chest, 40 pants (exactly once size bigger) and fit a 58 perfectly.

    The customer review feature on your website is really helpful - I wish more people posted their streetwear sizes vs purchased size.

    Hi Guy,

    REV'IT! does not make 2 versions of the Ignition 2. There have been models in the past that have differed from the US to what is offered in Europe, but it's never been based on sizing. Often times we see more perforated or hot weather oriented versions here in the US, such as the Tarmac Air Leather Jacket, which is fully perforated in the US and not in Europe. I'm positive the version you purchased in Europe is sized exactly the same as the version sold here in the US.
    Cheers,
    Ali

    Hi Azia,

    Thank you for the positive feedback. Your words were passed along to the entire CS staff, which prompted a loud bang on our CS Gong that rings out whenever we get praise like yours.

    I noticed you have 2xl in the cayenne pro on sale. I tried on an XL Sand which was tight in the shoulders with all the liners on but OK without liners. I would probably just use heated liner anyways. I am 6"1 200 lbs with shoulders that always get in my way for fitting things. Would love to buy a close out but wondering if it is going to be way to baggy in the midsection.
    Thanks

    Anyone know when the Revit Airwave Pants will be back in stock? Need an XL standard in grey. Saw most all sizes out of stock and even through other vendors.

    Thx,

    I know these aren't typically Advrider gear, but some of us "go both ways"

    I know the Jerez gloves are designed for race-type situations, but how well do they handle getting wet, if you're wearing them for some distance and nature decides to be a mother?

    I bought the Forcefield Body Armour Extreme Adventure Harness and I didn't like the elbow pads. I used them about 10 times. They are practically brand new. These things are really well built too, the whole suit cost over $400 new. Anyone want to pay $40+shipping and they are yours...

    I may have some knee pads too, but not sure if I am gonna use the Asterisks instead.

    PM me if interested.

    Hi OR400,
    The Cayenne Pro fits slightly more snug than the Sand Jacket. If the XL Sand was a bit snug, I would suggest the 2XL in the Cayenne Pro jacket. The Cayenne Pro doesn't have the double waist cinch that the Sand Jacket does, but it has a single waist cinch and a draw cord at the hem. Lastly, even though it's a closeout, you can still return it to us for a full refund if you find it's not the right fit. If you have time, I'm sure our Gear Geeks can address any additional questions you have on sizing.
    Cheers,

    Hey FiveG,
    I have a pair of Jerez gloves, but I only use them on the track. They have what I would call a "race fit" and after a long day in the saddle, might not be as comfortable as a touring style glove. In addition, the double velcro cuff takes a bit longer to get in and out of. On the protection side, these are one of the best gloves on the market, and despite my earlier comment, are one of the more comfortable race gloves in that category. They can handle a little wet weather, but I would not recommend using in prolonged rain.
    Cheers,

    Well, I finally got everything all sorted out.

    I ended up ordering the Horizon pants, too, so I would have a "suit" I could wear for touring. Usually, I take a size 50 in Rev'it, but the Horizon stuff is only in letter sizes. I think I'm in-between letter sizes, so I looked at not only the medium and large jackets, but also the large short, medium short, and medium regular pants... :confused

    All of it fit, more or less, and I wasn't sure which jacket and pants to keep. Your customer service rep Ed helped me out by suggesting that I should go with the large jacket if I would be wearing it in the winter with other clothes under it. He also suggested going with the medium regular pants (which have the longest inseam of the three, at 80cm, vs. 75cm for the large short and 73cm for the medium short) to fit better when I sit on the bike and also to leave enough material to let the velcro cuffs make a good seal around my boots, keeping cold winter air from blowing up my legs. (The large short was just too big for me in the waist, but I thought its inseam was a better fit for me than the medium.)

    Note that at least for the Horizon pants, the size chart on your website is wrong. It shows the medium regular and large short as having the same inseam length. But with a tape measure, I measured the medium regular as 5cm longer in the legs than the large short, and the difference is obvious when you try both of them on.

    Also, I don't agree with the Horizon jacket video on your website, when it says that the Horizon jacket is so much roomier that someone can go down a size from what they wore in previous Rev'it gear (but I'm not going to issue any challenges to Anthony this time! :lol3).

    I've always been a Rev'it size 50, and the large (50-52) Horizon jacket was the right fit for me. Sure, I could squeeze into the medium jacket -- it wasn't absolutely too small -- but it was a very snug fit, noticeably tight in the armpits and across the chest. With the liner in, it left no room for anything under it besides a thin base layer. The medium would really only make sense if I were going to ride without the liner all the time AND I wanted a very snug fit.

    If Rev'it ever asks you guys for customer feedback, I would say that I wish they made more of their stuff in number sizes (48, 50, 52, etc.) instead of letter sizes. Makes it so much easier to get a good fit!

    Thanks, Ali.

    I am thinking about getting the Turbine pants to compliment my new Cayenne Pro jacket. I realize they are two different animals as far as temperatures go but are they more of an over-lap than it might seem? The Cayenne Pro pants are sold out and so far I am blown away by the Cayenne pro jacket and I want a Rev-it pant that wont break the bank. ( They are on close out right now)

    With rain liner in what do we think the temperature range is for the Turbine pant? I do most of my riding in So Cal and Arizona so rain-proof and super warm is that important. Will the silver color match up well with the grey/green Cayenne jacket?

    Hey Montanaman,
    Many folks pair the Cayenne Pro jacket with the Turbine Pants. They actually use the same materials, so the colors will match up well. The Turbine pants with the liner in are probably good to the mid-50's or so, but that hugely depends on your personal temperature tolerance. The Turbine will out-perform the Cayenne Pro jacket in the warmer end of the spectrum, but I would say they can comfortably go up to 90 degrees.
    One more issue of note with the Turbine pants, the SuperFabric on the knees can scratch your fairing. If you are riding a naked bike or a GS, you should be fine. I have used the Turbine pants (ladies version, of course) on my GS1200 with no scratching issues.
    Other than the fairing-compatibility thing, the Turbine pants are rock solid, super protective mesh pant, and really a shame REV'IT! discontinued them.
    Cheers,
    Ali

    Thats funny cause my cayenne pro pants in 2XL have way more room every where than my Sand pants in the same size.

    Are any of the Revit jackets longer? I have a rev sand in XL and its kinda short on me. I was wondering if the Cayenne pro jacket was longer.

    Hi Revzilla team,

    I've been off bikes for quite a while. I'm just about to get back into it, specifically adventure/dual sport touring and im happy as hell because my partner wants a bike too. :thumbup
    We've been looking for some good quality riding gear to suit our conditions and need some help. We are both finding it extremely frustrating at the lack of good gear out there for women as well. What would you recommend for an adventure/dualsport jacket and pants combo ( they dont have to match). Our priorities are quality and comfort, protection and ventilation. At this stage that is more important than price. Here in Australia, and where we will be riding we are less concerned with waterproofing (internal layers would be out most of the time) and much more concerned with staying as cool as we can in temps up to 90-100deg + it would be nice to have the ability to wear layers underneath or a liner for warmth when it is needed but we are happy to use a goretex or similar over-jacket/pants when it rains. what would be your top few mens choices and ladies choices for this application. usage would be probably 70-30 offroad-onroad.

    Thanks for the advice.

    DS

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for decent, inexpensive armor for off-road for a 14 year old girl, ~100lbs, 5'6", with a little room to grow. What do you carry/recommend?

    Thanks.

    Hey Dr. Gordon,
    We have a whole section of Off Road gear on our site. Look for the "Off Road" tab and enter the word "youth" in the search bar. You can see all the offerings we have that will fit your young rider. There are several roost deflectors, helmets, knee and elbow guards to choose from, and many at more affordable prices. If you need help comparing or have any questions, you can always reach out to our Gear Geeks for assistance.
    Cheers,
    Ali

    Hey Parx,
    It's been my experience that the Sand typically fit a little less snug than the Cayenne Pro, but there are always exceptions. As far as jackets are concerned, I would look to more of the touring options from REV'IT! such as the Spectrum or Horizon, which are more of a true 3/4 length jacket.
    Cheers,
    Ali
