Revi't Defender GTX Jacket and Pants Review (December 2010)
Defender GTX Jacket
The next new jacket in the Rev'it Gore-Tex lineup is the
Defender GTX, which looks somewhat similar to the famed
Cayenne Pro jacket.
It features a 500 denier genuine Cordura shell with
DuPont Teflon coating to reduce water absorption at the
shell layer. The Defender GTX also has 1000 denier
special rip-stop material used in crucial areas like the
It has the Gore-Tex Performance Shell waterproof
liner and more traditional "hatch" type vents on the
chest, but with the Rev'it "3D" mesh, which we discussed
in our 2010 Rev'it clothing introduction. This
keeps the mesh from pressing against the rider's skin
and provides higher air flow than a simple mesh fabric.
The Defender GTX includes the Exkin insulating liner,
which can be mixed-and-matched with the Gore-Tex
Performance Shell liner. The jacket also features
perforated (and very cool-looking) Superfabric on the
arms, Prym metal snaps and locking zippers.
Defender GTX pants are available to make up the
Defender GTX suit. The pants match the jacket
features, with Superfabric, the Exkin liner and matching
vents. Both the jacket and trousers are available
in either black, silver/black or silver/black with red
accents (my favorite!).
