REVIT Action H2O Jacket

Part bomber, part race-inspired jacket, that’s how we’d describe the ventilated yet waterproof Action H2O. It’s for the urban rider who wants both sport tech and streetwear wrapped into a CE-certified motorcycle jacket. Its extra edge to set it apart from the crowd comes from the lines across the chest, shoulders, and sleeves, which have been created with a more angular and aggressive stance. That way it leans more toward fashion because of its streetstyle vibe.

Giving the Action H2O its aforementioned waterproofing designation is the inclusion of a detachable hydratex|Mesh G-liner construction. Take it out on warmer days so the fully ventilated outer shell can allow air to flow toward your body.

Sizing Information

We tried a size Medium and an XL on our Fit Check mannequins Huey and Dewey. Those are sizes they usually wear in an “American” cut jacket. This jacket from REV’IT! fits well enough and it looks sharp, but there is very minimal room left.

We measured each jacket and tried them on and we’ve concluded that the fit is just about one-half size smaller than what you would find in ordinary US men’s clothing. For most people, this means you’ll be able to buy the size you normally wear if you want a snug, European style fit. If you want a looser American fit, or if you are between sizes, choose one size larger.

Below is the REV’IT!-published chest size for each jacket’s alpha size along with our estimate of max chest and max waist/belly.

Our Two Cents

The REV’IT! Action H2O jacket is a blend of sport and classic styling for a modern take on the classic bomber style jacket.

The Action H2O is actually a mesh jacket, the H2O comes from the removable hydratex® mesh G-liner. That liner is designed to fit very snug on the body to hold in warmth and keep water out, so with the liner installed the jacket will fit on the snug side of the sizing chart. With the liner removed (snaps on the chest and back of the neck and 2 buttoned loops on each sleeve) the jacket opens up to be slightly larger than our largest estimate on the size chart and the mesh will really get the air flowing. Even the knit style reflective areas of the chest and back are mesh so it really flows nicely.

In classic bomber style you have stretch at the waist, neck, and cuff. This allows an easy, snug fit. The cuffs also have extensions with thumb holes so you can keep the sleeve pulled down or tucked into your gloves in an over/under set up. The arms also have a snap bicep adjuster for a custom fit. On the back of the jacket, in the shoulders there is a stretch material for ease of movement in the riding position. The main zipper has a large pull tab that is easy to handle with gloves on, and the two hand pockets on the belly have long cord pulls as well. The tail of the jacket is slightly elongated so you have better coverage than a traditional bomber jacket, and internally there are 2 belt loops and a short connection zipper so you can pair the jacket with your favorite riding pants with ease.

The styling of this jacket is sharp thanks to the knit style portions of the chest, back, and arm accents. This material has a very unique look and gives the jacket an aggressive style. When the light hits the jacket right the knit material has reflective threads that really light up for maximum visibility at night. Other safety features included the flexible SeeSmart™ CE level 1 armor in the elbows and shoulders and TPU protection at the shoulders. There are also pockets for optional back and chest protection that is sold separately, see our related product links below for options.

The REV’IT! Action H2O jacket is an interesting take on the bomber style jacket. This is the first mesh bomber jacket I can think of and that plus the styling make this jacket stand out as a welcome update to the classic look. With the hydratex® liner you can ride in rain or shine weather. I would say this jacket is best suited as it comes for cool to hot weather and if you wanted to ride in colder temps I would suggest layering under the liner for additional warmth. The styling is a mix of classic and sport so most urban riders will find a refined look that fits in with just about any bike for a little personal flair. :: Mike, 07/25/2022
