Revit Target Air Jacket Review and Video
With a name like Revit Target Air and Revit Target H2O, it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that this motorcycle jacket is made for hot weather, summer rides. It also aims to offer protection inspired by Moto GP without affecting the overall look of the jacket. At a recommended retail price of 350 Euros, or around 370 USD, this jacket will be competing with the Dianese Avro 4, Dainese Racing 3, Alpinestars Missile Ignition Airflow, Alpinestars GP Plus R V2, and Dainese Assen jackets.
But before we get started, remember, if you want to see reviews for any other products from Rev’It, you can find those on our YouTube Channel, in our dedicated Revit playlist.
Starting with material, we should be unsurprised to see a lot of mesh on the Rev’It Target Air's outer shell. Revit’s 3D air mesh goes up the front and back of the jacket as well as down the sides of the sleeves. This mesh is made to maximize airflow in and out of the jacket, bringing cool air in while pushing hot air out.
Apart from a knitted collar and cuffs, and reflective inserts here and on the back of the jacket, the rest of the jacket is made from Monaco performance cowhide, which is smooth and offers excellent abrasion resistance.
There is also a waterproof version of this jacket, the Rev’It! Target H20, which replaces the mesh with PWR shell twill stretch fabric, and comes with a detachable waterproof Hydratex Z-Liner membrane. This version is a little more expensive, at a recommended retail price of 370 euros, or around 390 USD.
For protection features, the Target Air does not disappoint. You will find CE Rated SEESMART protection in both the shoulders and the elbows. The shoulders also come equipped with external hard protectors. All this protection will provide impact resistance as well as increased abrasion resistance in high impact areas.
If this isn’t enough there is also the option to insert a CE level 2 back protector, as well as Revit’s divided SEESOFT chest protectors. Again, a lot of protection on offer should you take a spill.
Looking at the jacket’s features for comfort and adjustment, the jacket offers a comfortable fit and uses a quality zipper. There are no adjustments to made on the collar, but you will find zip ins on both cuffs which will make it easier to remove the jacket without removing your gloves.
Adjustments can also be made on the waist, using the Velcro straps found there, allowing you to tighten or loosen the fit around the waist. We also find three pockets on the outside of the jacket, all of which can be accessed via zippers, and the two pockets on the side have a nice leather cover over the zippers.
Looking inside the jacket we have a detachable thermal liner for use on those cold mornings. This liner zips into the jacket and can be easily removed or attached. This liner also provides an internal pocket. If that lining is removed we find the internal lining of the jacket is made of mesh to further facilitate ventilation, and we’ll also find a replacement pocket for the one we lose when removing the thermal liner, along with another internal pocket on the inside near the zipper.
In the back of the jacket you will find a connection zip should you wan to connect the jacket to a pair of Revit riding pants.
Remember, if you are interested in purchasing the Revit Target Air or the Revit Target H2O jacket, you can find it on our website at ChampionHelmets.com, where if you find the jacket cheaper elsewhere, you simply have to contact our customer service, and we will match their price or even beat it.
The Target Air is a good choice if you are looking for a hot weather riding jacket with good protection, the Target Air is certainly a jacket you should consider. It will keep you safe and cool and has the option to increase its protection should you decide to add it.
