Review Summary

Legacy GTX Jacket

Technically speaking, the Cayenne Pro then comes next in the hierarchy of Rev’it jackets, followed by the Sand jacket we reviewed in 2010. After that comes the new Legacy GTX jacket and pants.

The Legacy GTX is designed for riders in milder climates, such as Northern Europe, Northern, Northeast and Northwest U.S.A., Canada, Russia and other areas with milder summers. The 750 denier Teflon coated shell features 1000 denier rip-stop Cordura on the shoulders.

The Legacy GTX includes a free-floating Gore-Tex “Z Liner” bonded to the inside but with a space between the jacket shell and the liner. Thus, the Gore-Tex shell is not removable in the Legacy GTX, and the vents that open in the front and rear of the jacket allow air to pass over and around the bonded liner, which ventilates the rider by evaporation coming through the breathable membrane.

The non-removable liner provides a lower-cost Rev’it GTX waterproof jacket option for riders in climates that don’t normally have longer periods of extremely hot or humid weather, but the Legacy GTX includes many of the technical features included in the rest of the Rev’it GTX line.

The Legacy GTX also features Pro-Life CE-approved armor and a detachable thermal liner (not Exkin). The jacket is available in all black, black with silver accents or black with red accents.
