The Rev’it Defender Pro GTX is a serious adventure jacket and is packed with features. Here’s some of the best:
It’s Teflon coated for abrasion resistance and comes with protective sections as well as elbow, shoulder and back protectors. You can feel the hard wearing materials and textiles on the jacket.
The Defender has a detachable Gore-Tex liner that can be quickly zipped in and out in rainy weather.
It comes with waterproof inner pockets, two large hand pockets at the bottom and two more pockets up top, an extra large map pocket, slit pockets, a sleeve card holder and hand warmer pockets. The Pro excels in the ventilation department with huge sleeve and chest vents.
It also comes with plenty of adjustable straps to get the fit perfect,including velcro tabbed cuffs, sleeve adjusters, two waist straps and a very sleek collar fastener (with a hook closure to keep the collar out of the way when you want it undone).
The trousers are also very well made and all-day comfortable too. I’d go as far as to say they’re the best pair of motorcycle trousers I’ve ever owned. The pockets are huge, the ventilation excellent, the fit perfect and they come with long zipped openings, which makes getting big boots on easy.
There are no negatives with the Rev’it Defender Pro GTX jacket and trousers apart from the price. However, this is a premium, well-made and high-quality bit of kit and packed with excellent and well thought out features.
