A waterproof layer is laminated onto a carrier to construct the REV’IT! hydratex®|Z-liner membrane. The carrier, in turn, protects the membrane against wear-and-tear damage, and the seams of the membrane are taped to ensure waterproofing. The Z- liner is constructed between the lining and the outer shell. The REV’IT! hydratex®|Z-liner membrane is used in garments that demand a high level of all-weather protection.Protection:
- Injected ankle cup
- Reinforced side panel

Nylon Ripstop is a lightweight nylon fabric, woven in a special pattern known as ribstop. During weaving, thick reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern in the fabric. This greatly increases the fabric’s resistance to tearing and ripping, making ribstop nylon extremely durable.Visibility:

Beginning with some new boots models in the 2018 lineup, REV’IT! began using a new size conversion chart. The chart is listed below. Generally speaking, the boots run smaller than in past seasons for a given size. Their new chart reflects the smaller sizing. Using the new chart, you’ll be buying a boot that is 1/2 to one size bigger than you might have chosen by using the conversion in past years. We tried on this model and confirmed the smaller fit.
Our fit advice is to use the chart below to choose an EU size based upon your US street shoe size, while keeping in mind you may be choosing one size larger than you may have bought from REVIT in past seasons. If you are between sizes in the chart, choose the larger.
Our Two Cents
The REV’IT! Descent H2O shoes are a multipurpose riding shoe meant for a variety of riders from dual sport to touring to urban.
The Descent H2O is waterproof thanks to the integrated hydratex® Z-liner. This waterproof liner is lightweight and breathable so you’ll stay dry and relatively cool. This shoe is very comfortable on the foot thanks to the internal mesh lining and Ortholite® X-35 Hybrid insole.
Getting into the Descent H2O is easy thanks to the wide opening, gusseted tongue, and oversized rear pull strap. Once in, the boot secures with a normal lace up system that you can then hold in place with the hook and loop strap so you don’t have to worry about laces getting caught up in anything on the bike.
The REV’IT! Descent H2O shoes have the normal protection you expect from a motorcycle shoe : reinforced side panels, heel, and toe, reinforced and injected ankle cup, and an integrated shank. The toe is not as stiff as other riding shoes, but it has a laminated reinforcement material over the shifting area to make up for the slightly more malleable toe box. The tread is a nice mix of patterns for good traction on and off the bike. The integrated shank runs through the arch area of the foot then it becomes more flexible at the ball of the foot for comfort off the bike.
The REV’IT! Descent H2O shoes check a lot of boxes for urban and dual sport riders looking for comfort and protection in a style that looks very similar to a high end hiking or trail shoe. The hydratex® liner will keep you dry, so these shoes are functional in just about any weather conditions but probably best suited for cool to warm weather. :: Mike, 08/01/2022
