REV’IT Overshirt Worker Jacket Product Review

Rennie Scaysbrook | August 29, 2019

Dutch apparel company REV’IT have an absolute plethora of top quality riding gear, but for a recent Milan Vespa trip, I wanted something a little more casual. Enter the Worker, a basic, simple jacket that is far more than the sum of its parts.

The REV’IT Overshirt Worker Jacket is a great choice for casual riding and/or commuting.

The Worker is constructed using abrasion-resistant Cordura canvas and sports SEESMART CE-Level 1 armor on the shoulders and elbows. You can also fit a REV’IT CE-level 2 back protector and join the jacket to a pair of the company’s jeans using the zipper and the REV’IT! Safeway 2 belt. There’s also a back vent you can open to cool you down as the front doesn’t have an opening.

Rider analysis

I get more comments on this jacket by real motorcycle riders than any other jacket in my rapidly expanding collection. I know I like a jacket a lot when I grab it even as I’m heading out for the night in the Uber, rather than actually riding to the destination, which I’ve done a few times with the Worker.

At a touch over six feet tall, the large Worker fits me perfectly. It’s quite snug when the zip is done up, and the armor is quite soft so after a little while you don’t even notice it.

There’s four outer pockets and another two inside, but as the fit is quite slim you can’t put a lot of things in them—mainly wallet, keys and phone. Still, the Worker is a great commuting/around town casual jacket that has shot right to the top of gear I grab on the go.CN
