had a high-side get off at 60mph on the freeway.
palm sliders did exactly what they were supposed to do - slide like a boss. knuckle guards saved 1/2" of abrasion, never hit my skin. pinky distortion control (or whatever stupid name they have for it) probably prevented a broken finger. leather got torn up but my skin didnt.
really glad i went for the extra protection over the other dianese short cuff gloves. these look less cool, but definitely saved my hands.

i live in boston and it's only hot for a few months out of the year, so i didn't want to go all in on a revit turbine or something passing $300. the revit air is a great option for just a few months where you need good air flow, knox protection (entry level, not crazy heavy), and style that doesn't look terrible.
ive personally compared this jacket to:
>> dianese shotgun: shotgun fits like a dream, but the armor is thinner and has less coverage, has WAY less airflow, and costs $100 more. sorry dianese, revit's got you beat on this one by a longshot.
>> revit turbine: this jacket is amazing, very high quality, but also well over $300, so not really comparable. if you want better armor and abrasion resistance, check out the turbine. i also recommend checking out the tornado as it flows more air and has a zip in waterproof liner. that said, the tornado also has a boxier cut so that's worse imo (i'm an athletic build, euro slimi fits me best).
armor:
the shoulder armor is nice and articulated, but it does not extend up onto the trapezius muscle, ends at the top of the deltoid. less protection than, say, my furygan, but good. in fact, i compared this to the dianese shotgun, which had much less protection (flimsier armor, less coverage).
flow:
good. plenty cool when riding, arms flow nicely, chest is good, adding a sastec to the back obviously reduces this airflow a bit but for this level of protection youre getting great flow.
style:
kind of like a nike athletic jacket. the black looks best, imo, better than the pic if it fits you well. revit has this ghetto reflective sliver tape on the shoulders that really drops the look a bit, and the wrist velcro looks really messy, but hey, this jacket is CHEAP for what you're getting. dianese really beats revit on style and fit here, but i'm extremely happy with the revit air.
overall:
at this price point, nothing beats it. just get this jacket if you wanna spend less than $200. if you wanna drop more money on a jacket, i'd say look at the tornado (waterproof removable liner) or turbine (better protection). the dianese shotgun and portland are about the same in terms of heat reduction: both are quite hot and a bit overpriced in my opinion compared to revit's options (though they fit better and look better).
Yes, I recommend this product.
