REVIT’s women’s styles are sold in European sizes. We used a size 42 on our Fit Check Mannequin Shirley who is a standard size Large, Dress size 12. The jacket measured out correctly at 38” max. The waist sizes listed in REVIT’s standard chart are smaller than the actual sizes for each jacket. For example on the size 42 we used for the photo shoot on Shirley, , I measure the max waist at about 36”. Shirley has a waist of about 32” and it looks just fine on her. The jacket flares out a bit at the belt line to about 40”.Women’s REVIT size chart for jackets (chart is generic and may show size choices not available for this product.

Our Two Cents
The women’s Neptune GTX jacket and pants from REVIT are great street or touring product to take you through a variety of weather conditions from wet to dry and hot to cold. Both the jacket and pants are fitted with SeeFlex CE level 2 armor inserts in the shoulders elbows and knees. Hip armor is included for the pants and a back protector for the jacket is optionally available.
The Neptune GTX jacket and pants are each set up with a basic exterior shell along with two removable liners. One liner is a Genuine Gore-Tex rain liner and the other is a full length quilted thermal liner. So you can use one, both or neither depending on the circumstances. With both the Gore-Tex liner and thermal liner installed, you’ll be able to handle some pretty darn low temps. But with both out, the shell is a fairly lightweight and well vented. Both short rear and full-around zippers are provided in both the jackets and pants so you can connect the two to make a full riding suit. Connecting the two together helps keep the weather out, but is also a safety feature so if you fall, the jacket will not ride up nor with the pants be pulled down at the waist which will keep your torso protected by the jacket/pant shell material.
For summer use, REVIT has incorporated zippered vents into both the jacket and pants. The ladies version of the Neptune is built to conceal the vents and keep the garments light and fashionable. The men’s version of the Neptune GTX have larger flaps that deploy open where the ladies versions are concealed zippers for the same function. The jacket has zip vents in the chest and on the sleeve ends and then one horizontal vent in back. The pants have zip vents on each thigh. With the removable liners out and with the zips open, air can circulate through the shell to your body and improve the comfort in hot weather. I think the Neptune will work for all season except for perhaps hot summer temps (depending upon your tolerance for heat). This is at least, a 3 season product and will work well for wet weather too.
For fit customization, adjusters are provided on the jacket and pants too. The jacket has side waist adjusters and snaps on the sleeves to take up any excess material. The sides of the torso on the jacket have zippers to allow for expansion over the hip area if needed. The pants have sliding buckles on each side of the waist band to snug them down a bit if needed.
One neat feature for touring riders is that the Gore Tex removable layer in the jacket is fashioned as a “stand alone” destination piece, so you can wear it as a light waterproof jacket when you are off the bike. The thermal liner zips into the rain liner too, so you can wear both if it is cold outside. A feature like this really helps with packing space. On the back of the jacket shell is a large fanny pack where you can stow the liners if needed.
Night time reflectives are worked in liberally for the Neptune GTX so you can be seen at night. Please have a look at our photo gallery for the night shots for demonstration. As a suit, the Neptune GTX will take you anywhere you want to go. :: Paul, 02-11-19

REVIT says: The long awaited 3L GORE-TEX® jacket for women has arrived. The Neptune GTX jacket for ladies is not a copy of the original Neptune GTX jacket, though it features the same construction, high density outer shell with Teflon coating, GORE-TEX® membrane with Paclite® and detachable thermal liner. The jacket received a quality upgrade this season and features several women specific design details: Concealed pockets neatly hide the ventilation zippers, the membrane storage pocket has been upgraded to be more discreet, adjustment straps come in variable in heights and the sleeve borders offer stretch for added comfort. The jacket also comes standard equipped with SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 protectors. Together with the Neptune Ladies GTX trousers, it’s the ideal choice for the serious female tour rider.
