Although we’re getting hit with this “bomb cyclone” here in Philly today, many of us are daydreaming of Spring riding and the gear launches that are sure to follow. As usual, REV’IT! does not disappoint with the roll-out of their newest leather jackets, including the
REV’IT! Nova Jacket, which is new for Spring 2018.
Taking style cues from the super popular REV’IT! Flatbush and REV’IT! Gibson Jackets, the REV’IT! Nova follows that classic Cruiser style, with a band of color across the chest to set it apart from the rest. Available in Black leather with 3 color block options (White, Green, or Blue) and a stellar option of two-tone Blue leather, this jacket is sure to appeal to quite a few riders. While this jacket does not have any venting, it does come with a full-sleeve detachable thermal liner, making it ideal for riders hitting the road just as the grass is starting to peek out from underneath the snow. Our brothers in California (and other moderate climates) could definitely rock this jacket year-round, but I can see this jacket going back on the hanger once the temps start climbing above 70. That still gives you plenty of time to break in the Rub Off cowhide leather to get that beautifully worn-in vintage look this jacket is just screaming for.
The REV’IT! Nova jacket comes stock with Seesmart CE Level 1 armor in the elbows and shoulders, and a pocket for the optional Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector (sold separately). Aside from the standard zip-up handwarmer pockets, you’ve got a handy document pocket on the left sleeve to stash your ID and some cash for convenient access. The short connection zipper on the inside of the jacket, along with the jeans loops, makes it easy to pair this jacket with the many armored riding jeans that REV’IT! has to offer.
Overall, REV’IT! always does a great job of catering to many different segments with one piece of gear, and I think the REV’IT! Nova Jacket is no exception. If you ask me, that two-tone Blue leather is the real show-stopper in this new release!
Ride safe, and stay warm!
