First let me say that I have been looking on and off for a while for a mesh-type jacket that I could feel safe in, but that wouldn't break the bank. This jacket by Rev'it fits the bill perfectly, and the styling is fantastic to boot.
Sizing:
I'd say the sizes are a bit small for folks who run more towards the "American" size of things. I'm 6'0" and a not-too-fit 180 pounds. I wear a size 42 suit jacket, and Euro-cut suits feel restrictive to me. With a lot of "American" clothing, I can sometimes get away with a medium, and a large always fits. However, I ended up with the extra-large Airwave, which fits wonderfully. The length in the sleeves is perfect, and it isn't too loose in the chest. Shoulder pads and elbows fit right in place without adjustment.
Function:
It is hotter than heck around here this summer, and this jacket definitely helps. It lets the air flow right on in, and until the mercury hits 90 or so, it's comfortable to wear. With the optional TP2 back protector, I have to say that I got a little warm when stuck at stop lights at temps over 90. That's with the sun beating right on my back.
Style
I opted for the silver/yellow, and I really like how the "see-me-yellow" is styled into the jacket. You can't miss it, and yet it flows well into the design, adding flair and safety. In terms of styling, the armor is unobtrusive. You know it's there, but you aren't announcing it to the world.
