We measured and tried on all the sizes in this overshirt and developed the size chart below to help you buy the right size. The overall cut is trim… some call it a “European” cut, which means it is close fitting and will work best for those with a trim build. For most people, we recommend you buy the size you usually wear in men’s clothing. Those with more stout builds will want to try one size larger than you normally wear.
We put a Medium and XL on our two Fit Check mannequins Huey and Dewey and the fit looks good (click the “View Larger Images” link above to see).
Sleeve and body lengths are noticeably generous so taller riders will appreciate the extra length. The arms are fairly trim so those with stout builds probably won’t like the overall cut, but taller and leaner cut people probably will love it.

Our Two Cents
The Tracer Air Overshirt is just the thing for hot summer use. Its full mesh all over, so the air blows right through. For a look at its non-mesh brother, the Tracer 2, take the link below.
From a distance, the Tracer air just looks like a standard textile jacket. Only when you get close can you tell the material is mesh. It is a dense weave and feels sturdy and its surprisingly heavy duty too. I don’t know first hand, but I’d bet this material would outperform the cotton/poly blend material in the standard shirt. Unfortunately, I don’t have the striped jackets in front of me so I won’t comment on those, but I do like the black. The weight and sturdiness of the material means this jacket hangs well without wrinkling and puckering which I like. The pockets and collar are trimmed in a slick black nylon material which gives the shirt sort of a “formal” look. The inside of the shirt is lined with a camo-print nylon.
The shirt closes with a zipper (for safety) and then there is a snap closure setup for the placket over the zipper. The snaps look like buttons to give the shirt a more sturdy appearance (think lumberjacket shirt or Levi jacket perhaps). The last couple snaps don’t have the button look on the outside which the paint on your tank will be thankful for.
The rubberized patch on the shoulder with REVIT’s logo Velcros in place, so if you want to replace that with your own patch, you’ll be able to do that easily without sewing. The collar tips have small snaps to hold them down so they don’t flap and drive you crazy at higher speeds.
This overshirt comes with SeeSmart armor in the shoulders and elbows which is extremely thin and flexible. More traditional armor just wouldn’t work well with a close-fit shirt style like this, and so this armor works great. The shirt can connect to jeans with loops that goes around your belt, and there is also a short rear zipper to connect to REV’IT motorcycle pants. The short zipper can also work with REVIT’s Safeway 2 belt. If you use the belt with your jeans, it becomes a more secure connection than the two simple loops over your own belt.
I’ll have to hand it to REVIT… they really are a style and feature leader for motorcycle apparel. They continue to come up with new/different things. :: Paul, 02-06-19
Add a Back Protector: This jacket is made with a pocket to accept a Seesoft CE Level 2 Back Protector Insert type RV (RV refers to the shape). For sizes Small or Medium, choose size 4; for Large thru XXL, choose size 5 and for the XXXL, go with the size 6.
REVIT says: The Tracer Air takes on the role of a mesh jacket but in overshirt form. The full PWR|mesh outer shell allows for optimal airflow, cooling down the body on those hot summer rides. Extensive development led the PWR|mesh to look like streetwear fashion material, so when you take a closer look, the open structure to allow all the air to flow through is visible. Further protection comes at the shoulders and elbows thanks to the SEESMART™ CE-level 1 armor. For additional protection, you can upgrade the Tracer Air with our SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector insert.
