The REV’IT! Liv Women’s Jacket compares favorably to other options with its stylish design, weather protection, and impact armor.

Key strengths include the waterproof and thermal liners that allow true year-round use in varying climates.

The CE-approved armor provides better coverage than many competitors. Areas for improvement include adding more reflective details and increasing ventilation options.

But overall, the Liv remains one of the top premium jackets designed especially for female riders. It balances safety, comfort, and performance for a jacket that excels as a do-it-all riding companion.

Key Takeaways on the REV’IT! Liv Jacket:

  • CE-rated armor for impact protection
  • Abrasion-resistant shell withstands crashes
  • Waterproof and thermal liners for all-weather use
  • Reflective details on sleeves improve visibility
  • Flattering trench coat style with adjustable belt
  • Limited ventilation for hot weather riding
  • A great cold-weather jacket with ample coverage

A Jacket Designed for Performance and Protection

When it comes to motorcycle jackets, you want something that not only looks good but can handle the demands of riding.

The REV’IT! Liv Women’s Jacket checks both boxes. It features a durable cotton and polyester shell with specially engineered PWR material for maximum abrasion resistance. This jacket is ready to take on the scrapes and scuffs from spills on the road.

The REV’IT! Liv also has CE-approved level 1 armor in the shoulders and elbows. This armor acts as an extra shield over your joints, absorbing impact while remaining flexible and comfortable.

There is no need to worry about bulky pads restricting your movement. The armor integrates seamlessly into the jacket design.

For additional impact protection, the jacket is prepped for a CE-level 2 back protector. While this back insert doesn’t come included, the pocket makes it easy to add your own protector and guard your spine from harm.

Stay Visible and Be Seen

Riding late at night or early in the morning? The REV’IT! Liv Women’s Jacket helps you stand out in low light.

Reflective detailing on the sleeves and sides boosts your visibility so other vehicles can spot you on the road. This added reflectivity gives you an extra safety edge when riding in challenging conditions.

However, we wish the back of the jacket also included some reflective elements. Since rear visibility is crucial for motorcyclists, having reflective material across the shoulder blades would provide increased safety. Hopefully REV’IT! Adds this in future versions to give riders 360° visibility.

Weather Protection You Can Count On

If riding in inclement weather is in your future, the REV’IT! Liv has you covered. It comes equipped with a fixed waterproof Hydratex liner to seal out the elements.

Heavy downpours, light drizzles, or everything in between – this jacket keeps you riding dry. No need to let temperamental weather spoil your plans.

For colder climates, a full-length thermal liner zips in to lock in warmth. Between the thermal layer and waterproof barrier, you get a customizable jacket for year-round riding comfort.

Ventilation is limited, given the weather protection, so riders in hotter environments may want to consider a more breathable option.

Stylish Design That Goes the Distance

The REV’IT! Liv Women’s Jacket sports a fashion-forward trench coat silhouette. It’s the perfect blend of form and function.

The flattering feminine shape complements your figure while delivering rugged durability. This jacket brings European-inspired elegance to your rides.

Attention to detail is evident throughout the jacket. The front button placket lies flat and avoids scratching your gas tank.

YKK zippers stand up to rigorous use, while internal pockets keep your belongings secure. There’s even a hidden side pocket behind the cargo pocket for quick access on the go.

The longer cut provides exceptional coverage from your collar down to your hips. You get protection across your back and torso without impeding mobility.

Whether you ride a sportbike, cruiser, standard, or tourer – this jacket allows complete freedom of movement.

Customizable Fit You Can Fine-Tune

Finding a jacket with the ideal fit can be difficult for women. But the REV’IT! Liv gets you closer with its adjustable waist belt.

Cinch the belt to contour the jacket to your exact shape. This helps prevent annoying billowing at higher speeds.

That said, the belt could benefit from added enhancements. The current setup only has one adjustment point over the front zipper.

We would like to see a two-point adjustment or integrated side snaps. This would really dial in that customizable fit for various body types.

The jacket is also available in a wide range of sizes from XS to 4XL. Refer to the detailed size chart to find your ideal fit. Our reviewer typically wears a medium size, and the medium size REV’IT! Liv fit true to size.
