REVIT Women's Ventura Jacket Serious equipment for the serious female rider. The REVIT Ventura Ladies jacket includes all of the important safety and practical features of a top-of-the-line adventure jacket, but with some specific features that enhance the comfort level even more. A good example is the waterproof, detachable liner, which can be easily removed and stowed away in the back pocket. Huge two-way zippers at the sleeves, and a fully removable collar that hides a big air mesh panel, allow the wind to flow in freely. Bottom line The worlds first true ladies adventure jacket. Ready for Paris but made for Dakar.

We bought this for my wife as passenger and this jacket held up amazing while riding a 500 mile day through one of the hurricanes a few months ago. It is still has an internal rain liner, and obviously the external rain suite would likely be superior in such extreme conditions, but this jacket and zip in pants allowed my passenger/wife to be a much much happier person back there. During and after the ride.
Seems pricey up front, but it is definitely cut for a women's shape and that alone makes it worth the extra money. If you are looking for some quality gear that fits, with the bells and whistles, the extra cash is worth every dollar. And it is appreciated during every minute on the road.
The guys at the Revzilla storefront were awesome in fitting the wife up and seemed to tailor the selection pretty well with the type riding we would be doing.

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

This is a really solid armor. Though it has not and hope to not ever have to test it, once it warms it conforms and is pretty flexible. However, this is still a relatively rigid but flexible armor back pad. It has a little weight to it, but you need some mass for this foam to really do it's job.
If you want the best protection to comfort, I recommend this armor.
Though the companies cannot recommend cutting it, many people will trim the armor to fit better into their jackets.

The armor appears well designed and adds a lot of security to my textile pants. I like the flexibility of multiple layers of armor inside the short which provides excellent mobility, etc. I'm told this is some of the best armor our there, hence the pricepoint, and I hope to never test its quality.
I can't say it is a full size larger, but I ordered the large and wear 36" waist jeans and these fit a little loose. Not tight like bicycle shorts.
I would give it five stars, but the fitment is slightly off and the price is pretty hefty.
Yes, I recommend this product.
