RevIt! Bellecour Armored Jacket

I spent weeks online searching for an armored jacket I didn't find offensive. I love my blue vintage fringe, but this summer more speed means I want more safety features. I went to Moto Corsa in Portland to try on the Roland Sands Oxford and Riot, but the elbow armor in both jackets floated all the way around my tiny arms. The rad sales team pulled this jacket for me to try. It was a surprise from RevIt, who I associated with more aggressive color paneled offerings.

The length is perfect. It covers any gap you might have and the Velcro gives you options on fit.

It has some great details, cafe racer style collar with snap back tab and quilting inside and on the shoulders. It has a zipper cover on the lower part of the zipper to shield the tank from scratching. It doesn't have venting, which is a bummer, but it fits me great even with the armor in. I tried on a 36 and custom ordered the 34. I'm 5'1" and about 100lbs.
