REVIT Westport Overshirt
There’s something effortlessly sophisticated about a quilted overshirt, as seen in our Westport garment. The overshirt exudes jacket-like functionality – such as slit pockets and a front zipper – yet is disguised as your distinguished overshirt thanks to the button front closure and the chic collar. The 11 oz. Cordura® denim, combined with PWR | shield knit on the shoulders and elbows, takes care of the abrasion resistance, which together outclasses leather. The mechanical stretch of the material and use of action pleats at the back add comfort. Despite the casual look, the Westport means business when it comes to safety, which is covered through the incorporation of our SEESMART™ CE-level 1 protectors and the use of triple needle stitching.ERGONOMIC FEATURES:

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 fit 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, you’ll find that you have to buy one size larger than you usually wear in men’s clothing. The exception would be a person with a tall, trim built who prefers the European fit.
We put a Medium and XL on our two Fit Check mannequins Huey and Dewey. We generally buy test jackets in a Medium for Huey and an XL for Dewey (41” and 45” chest respectively) assuming these jackets would fit “normally”, and were able to get them on the two mannequins, but it was a very tight fit (click the “View Larger Images” link above to see).
Sleeve lengths are noticeably generous. 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 Westport over shirt by REVIT offers a slightly heavier weight version of their overshirt selections. The shell is quilted with a light layer of insulating material underneath.
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. There is a layer of extra abrasion resistant material on the back side of the elbow armor pockets to give more resistance in that crash-critical area. The material is not visible because of the shirt’s inner liner, but it is there. No back protector comes with the overshirt, but you can add one (see below). If you plan to do so, add about 1” to your chest measurement when considering what size to pick. The shirt can connect to jeans with a loop that goes around your belt, and there is also a short rear zipper to connect to REV’IT motorcycle pants.
The material used in the shell of this jacket is heavy duty and it looks sharp. The material is extremely wrinkle resistant and looks great right out of the package. This shirt has a pocket selection similar to a riding jacket…. two had warmer pockets and two chest pockets and also two inside breast pockets. I notice that the collar tips on this jacket have snaps underneath to keep them from flapping on your neck and chin when riding. That’s a handy feature to have on jacket with a shirt collar! With all the features, this overshirt is as close to a full jacket as you’ll probably get and still have the looks of a shirt. :: Paul, 11-14-17
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.
