Revit Territory Jacket Review: Should You Buy It for Dual Sport Riding?

As someone who loves exploring backroads and trails during the warmer months, I’m always on the lookout for jackets that provide protection without compromising ventilation and comfort. This is why I decided to test the Revit Territory Jacket.

In this hands-on review, I’ll share my experiences testing out the Revit Territory and how it stacks up for summer off-road adventures.

But, the main question I will answer in this review will be: Is this the best adventure motorcycle jacket for you? Let’s find out!

Key Takeaways

  • Smart armor stays fixed
  • Ventilated for summer riding
  • Lightweight yet abrasion-resistant

A Lightweight Yet Abrasion Resistant Design

My initial impressions of the Territory were very positive. Revit managed to create a lightweight and extremely breathable jacket, thanks to the main shell construction using their own Powershell mesh material.

This proprietary mesh feels smooth and flexible while providing the abrasion resistance you’d expect from a heavier jacket.

I especially like the perforated panels along the neck and around the shoulders, allowing airflow. It provides surprisingly good ventilation that’s suitable for summer riding.

The Powershell mesh extends down the inner arms and covers the entire chest and back panel. Yet despite the ventilation, Revit reinforced it with 750D Cordura ripstop on the shoulders, outer arms, and waist. This enhances abrasion resistance in key areas and gives the Territory a rugged dual sport look.

For flexibility, there’s Powershell stretch fabric behind the shoulders. You also get reflective bits on the arms, back, and collar for increased visibility.

Overall, I’m impressed by how they merged abrasion protection and airflow into a coherent off-road jacket design.

Armored for Trail Riding Adventures

Riding off-road inevitably means taking a few spills. That’s why I look for jackets with solid armor, and the Revit Territory delivers here as well. It comes equipped with Level 1 CE-rated shoulder and elbow protectors.

The armor itself is Revit’s “Smart Protectors,” which are thin, flexible, and perforated. I barely noticed them during testing, thanks to the pre-curved anatomical shape. They allow a full range of movement without restriction.

My only gripe is the need for a back protector pocket. Adding even just a basic foam back pad would’ve given more complete protection. Riders could opt for a separate protector, but having an integrated pocket makes it easier.

On the plus side, the sleeves have armor retention loops, so they stay fixed in a crash. The Territory has you covered for the right places where you’re most likely to slide in a spill.

Designed With Practical Comfort in Mind

After wearing the Territory out on the trails, I’m overall happy with how comfortable it is. The stretch panels behind the shoulders provide just the right amount of flex as you move. There’s also some give in the wrist cuffs and waist straps for a snug but not constricting fit.

Ventilation is a standout here. The vented chest, inner arms, and entire back really allow air to pass through, even while riding. I stayed remarkably cool and dry thanks to how effectively it breathed.

Moreover, the slanted external zipper for the rear pocket is brilliant. Having worn dozens of riding jackets over the years, I’ve found standard horizontal back pouches uncomfortable when stuffed full. The angled zipper on the Territory avoids that issue entirely.

Storage options are decent, with two zippered hand pockets and the aforementioned rear pouch. I prefer an inner vertical pocket, but the basic storage is enough for trail rides.

Lastly, the collar uses a Velcro tab instead of snaps to fasten it. This avoids any abrasive snaps that could chafe your neck while riding with the jacket fully zipped. It’s a subtle but welcome feature.

A Recap of the Revit Territory’s Features

To quickly summarize some of the main features that stood out to me:

  • Lightweight main shell construction using abrasion-resistant Powershell mesh
  • Reinforced shoulders, outer arms, and waist with 750D Cordura ripstop
  • Stretch panels behind the shoulders enhance flexibility
  • Perforated panels on the neck and shoulders for extra ventilation
  • CE-rated Level 1 “Smart Protectors” shoulder and elbow armor
  • Multiple storage pockets, including a rear pouch with a slanted zipper
  • Reflective bits on the collar, arms, and back for visibility

How the Territory Compares to Other Dual Sport Jackets

The Territory goes up against other ventilated jackets in the $200 to $250 price range, like the Alpinestars Venture R and Klim Traverse. The Revit holds up very well in this competitive space.

The Cordura reinforcements give it an edge in abrasion protection over the standard polyester material on the Traverse.

Ventilation is on par with both rivals as they also use vented mesh panels. When it comes to storage and comfort, the Territory is very comparable as well.
