It's not a light duty jacket. It's a rain jacket. It's meant to go over your real riding gear to protect you from the rain...that's why it's called a "rain jacket".

Ligito, I have some RevIt! gear, and I'm happy with it. I do not have any experience with this particular jacket, but now that you've posted it, I'm interested. I'll check it out as soon as I can find one and let you know my thoughts - if interested. no guarantee as to time, though. I might take a long time to try anything water related being where I am. It's rare I have to deal with it.

Car wash? .

I am in no hurry. I may have to go to CycleGear and see how they are and fit.

Apologies. Thread being about "Rain Jacket", I didn't think that repeating "Rain" was necessary. Sorry about that. I guess my input attempt should have been:

After wearing "RAIN" Jackets over mesh for touring over the last 45 years, I tend to go for longer ones than this REV'IT (Better at keeping your lower back dry, and often can also be zipped up to rain pants, which is also very nice), I like a few external pockets (for not having to chase items in my "Non rain" jacket under the "Rain" Jacket when it rains). Hood is also good for stretching the collar and preventing turbulences to get water down your neck after hours of riding in the rain, or from splash from traffic). And ventilation is nice to have too in warmer climates, so you can keep the "Rain" jacket on in between pours without feeling like being in a sauna.

All personal preferences of course. And again, for touring. I'd probably be happy with this REV'IT for emergencies on shorter trips around town.

That's all. Was just curious about how OF was going to use this "RAIN" Jacket. Again: Apologies for the confusion.

I just want it for emergencies.
I went for a ride in 2014 and it was the first time I was ever that wet.
Soaked my gloves. I don't like glove covers.
I generally don't ride in the rain.
I am too fat for my leather jacket and my Tourmaster is too hot for summer use, so I wear a mesh jacket, then.

Misunderstandings tend to happen with me a lot. I tend to be very precise in my discussions, and will often go back and correct a post several times for what most would consider very minor spelling errors. In fact, my wife tells me all the time not to be so precise.

I see the differences you're talking about. Not sure if I'd care too much about external pockets, but hey, they could be somewhat handy. It might take me a long time to trust one with anything I care about.

45 years? Not bad. Working on it. I'm only at 44...

This has worked great for me, easy to carry on your trunk since it takes very little room and they are very ample, so you can wear them over your mesh jacket and leather pants (which is what I do when there is unexpected rain during my trips). https://www.nelsonrigg.com/apparel/s...it-detail.html

I will try several of these.
I have one that doesn't breathe, at all.
I would get wetter on the inside, than the outside of the jacket.

I wear an XXL, do I need to upsize, to wear over my jacket?
Quick response here.
I bought the Nitric about 1.5 years ago, kept me dry riding nine hours in solid rain on a unfaired Strom, but, BUT, the black of the rain jacket bled through onto my grayish mesh jacked underneath. I'm still pissed, I've try to wash it out about four times, no luck. The XL fit fine over my size 46 mesh.

Ligito,

I've been happy with this rain jacket: FirstGear Sierra Day Glo Rain Jacket from Motorcyclegear.com.
No Leaks in several days of rain on trips.
