Lightweight and breezy, but buy the SAS or TP2 back protector

Jacket is extremely well built. Good stitching, bar tacks, and the design sits very well in riding position. Its also amazingly light, much lighter than my Triumph Raptor and Integra mesh jackets. Velcro cuffs have a large adjustment range and are much faster than zips or buttons. Neck seems a bit tight, but it gets better once it breaks in. The sleeve hi-viz is awesome and looks great with Revit's Athos vest.
There are 2 big gripes for me. One is the zipper is backwards. The pull is on the left side, backwards from every other jacket I've owned. Its oddly disorienting to have to switch like that. My one other gripe is the default back pad is awful. Its a perforated 2cm thick piece of foam more suitable for a mouse pad than riding. Pay the extra money for the Knox TP2 or SAS protector.
So summary, its a great high quality lightweight jacket, but go for the back protector upgrade. Definitely will be looking at the rest of Revit's lineup now.
Yes, I recommend this product.
