Description

You put your gear through the wringer–commuting rain or shine, racking up major miles on the weekend, and always preferring the goat road over the low road–and your gear is looking rough. Velcro tabs are falling off, rain is seeping in, and high-wear areas are scuffed and ragged. So maybe you’re feeling like you’re done buying value-priced gear, year after year. If so, it might be time to drop a few bills on a premo jacket that’s going to protect you, keep you dry when it’s wet and cool when it’s hot, and go the distance with you for years to come.

The Rev’it Defender Pro GTX jacket is a hard-core touring jacket second only to the pro-level Dominator GTX in Rev’it’s lineup, with all the Rev’it usual suspects: Incomparable style, innovative features, and solid quality. Constructed with a Teflon-coated PWR|shell outer and removable Gore-Tex waterproof liner, the Defender is easily hearty...

You put your gear through the wringer–commuting rain or shine, racking up major miles on the weekend, and always preferring the goat road over the low road–and your gear is looking rough. Velcro tabs are falling off, rain is seeping in, and high-wear areas are scuffed and ragged. So maybe you’re feeling like you’re done buying value-priced gear, year after year. If so, it might be time to drop a few bills on a premo jacket that’s going to protect you, keep you dry when it’s wet and cool when it’s hot, and go the distance with you for years to come.

The Rev’it Defender Pro GTX jacket is a hard-core touring jacket second only to the pro-level Dominator GTX in Rev’it’s lineup, with all the Rev’it usual suspects: Incomparable style, innovative features, and solid quality. Constructed with a Teflon-coated PWR|shell outer and removable Gore-Tex waterproof liner, the Defender is easily hearty enough to accompany you on that epic round-the-world adventure. But if you’re more ‘101 at rush hour’ than ‘Western Mongolia’, the Defender might be just what you’re looking for, and at $899, for quite a bit less cash than the Dominator.

The Defender features a 750- and 1000-D, Rev’it proprietary outer with a removable Gore-Tex liner. Despite the growing popularity of one-piece laminated Gore-Tex shell jackets, a jacket with a removal waterproof liner remains the most versatile four-season choice for our warm Northern California climate. You can pack away your Gore-Tex liner in the summertime, allowing the jacket to breath better and cutting a bit of the weight.

Venting/Breathability

VCS panels on the chest open to large mesh intake vents for direct airflow to the body. VCS zippers on the front and back pull cool air through as hot air is sucked out. Two-way zippers on the forearms/biceps channel a ton of air into the jacket.

Waterproofing

Removable Gore-Tex liner with Micro Grid Backer: A removable Gore-Tex liner provides fool-proof rain protection when you need it. With no vents or zippers to worry about and the benefit of Gore-Tex waterproof/breathable technology, it’s simple and reliable. The Gore-Tex Micro Grid Backer on the inside of the liner is smooth to easily slide over mid-layers, is resistant to snags and wear, and contributes to breathability.

Teflon coating: A Teflon coating on the outside of the jacket helps to repel water and prevent absorption. Even though the main jacket body isn’t waterproof, this will provide some basic water resistance in minor showers and amidst dewey coastal air. The coating also obstructs dirt and keeps your jacket looking clean longer.

Protection

750-D and 1000-D PWR|shell: A very high level of abrasion protection is provided by the 750-denier PWR|shell main construction, with 1000-D PWR|shell reinforcements in the impact areas of the elbows, shoulders, and forearms.

Impact Protection: Seeflex CE-Level 2 armor at the shoulders and elbows (see our Guide to Back Protectors and Replacement Armor for more information about the new Level 2 rating for limb protection). A Seesoft CE-level 2 back protector is included.
