Review: REV’IT! Oxford JacketNot Your Average Motorcycle Jacket –

The REV’IT! Oxford mimics the traditional four-pocket, belted Barbour-style jacket with several moto-specific upgrades. CE rated Knox armor at strike points, brushed cotton shell with waterproof Hydratex lining, and a quilted zip-in liner make this a practical garment for cooler weather riding. Two spring-loaded snaps with abrasion protection on the bottom are used in places such as collar and wrist closures where many modern jackets use Velcro. A well-engineered storm flap, earphone loop, and reflective strip on the back suggest considerable forethought in the design. I found the Oxford to be a stylish, lightweight, and versatile shell, perfect for a local or long distance trip where weather protection is critical and looking like a space cowboy is just not cool.

Flexible, brushed cotton shell is light and comfortable
Barbour design is refined and suits a wide range of motorcycle gear styles
Built-in Knox armor protects without unnecessary bulk
A pocket exists for back armor
Quality at a great value

No summer ventilation
Back armor must be purchased separately
Like a Model T, it only comes in black
