 REV'IT! Turbine Jacket
REV'IT! Turbine Jacket
The TURBINE is a must-have for the everyday rider looking for a premium protective summer mesh jacket. The goal in developing the Turbine was to create a 'bomb-proof' mesh jacket. With Pro-Life armor for impact resistance, and SuperFabric on the impact areas, the Turbine Jacket is the choice for those wanting the breathability of a lightweight summer mesh jacket, but who in the past have been nervous about the protective qualities of mesh PROTECTION FEATURES Outer Shell Dynax mesh, Cordura 1000D, PWRshell 500D, PWRshell 750D, SuperFabric, Lorica reg Composition outer shell 98 polyamide, 2 other fibres Lining 100 polyester Protection Pro-Life CE (level 1) protection at shoulders and elbows, SuperFabric on impact areas and perforated Temperfoam at back Visibility laminated reflection at chest and back Recommended Upgrade SAS-TEC SC-1/12 Back Protector (not included) Pocket fits SC-1/12 size SAS-TEC Back Protector All Men's Turbine Jackets have the same size back protector pocket ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability UTA tab at cuffs, flexisnap XL, adjustment straps at hips, adjustment tabs at upper and under arms Ventilation ventilation panels at chest, back and arms Features collar hook, stretch lips at elbows, long connection zipper and double short connection zipper Pockets slit pockets, membrane storage pocket, inner pockets Please Note The Turbine Jacket does not include a wind/waterproof layer as noted in the 2009 catalog, the specs changed after the catalog went to print. NOTE Turbine Jacket runs 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT Jackets and to what the size charts indicate. So if you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

The protection in this jacket is the main reason I bought it, and it is fantastic. The fit is good, I considered getting a smaller jacket but a slightly larger jacket will allow me to wear something underneath should I need to.
Only one complaint, the color in the picture is not right, it is WAY to white in the picture, it is more gray/dark silver. And with me being in the military I have to get some brightness on there so I won't get hassled by the MPs.
Yes, I recommend this product.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

Great fit and looks if you don't need to show off that you have knuckle protection. Air flow is good, even in the humidity. (I live in Guam) While they are not like heavy armor for your hands I would definitely buy again, unless they came out with something with similar looks but more beefed up protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
