Revíit! Tracer Air

As summer approaches I thought it would be a good time to try out the trendy new Revíit Tracer Air overshirt.
It comes in some pretty awful colors, so I chose as what I believe is the least offensive; plain Olive in a size XL for my 44Ē chest.
Louis.de only have the plain black or olive in stock (none of the striped colors are available on their site). Urban Rider have the other striped color available too, but not the Orange/Blue as even they know that color mix should never have been invented...

Louis.de are having a 20% sale on until the 29th May (use code 367 at checkout) and I added a level 2, size 5 back protector as well.

I will update this thread once it arrives (hopefully next week at some stage).

I like the look of a few of the dedicated riding shirts on Urban Riders site, but it can get pretty expensive buying a few to ensure variety.

For that reason I decided to try the Knox Urbane Pro shirt, which is fully rated and offers abrasion resistance and full armour. It enables me to literally wear whatever I want over it, as Iím fully protected regardless. They also suggest that itís perfectly acceptable to wear on its own... although Iíd argue that being able to see nipple through the mesh is far from acceptable

Iíve only worn it a couple of times so far but I must say itís very comfy, to a point of forgetting youíre wearing it and the air that it flows it perfect for the hotter days.

I saw that one too, but somehow also envisioned my spare tire, exposed nipple and The Village People playing in the background.
Not that I have any issues with people wearing what they want, it’s just I would not want to expose the general public to my (not-so-Greek god like) body looking like that!

So Tracer Air it is, until I get totally ripped at the gym. Which will probably be never or slightly after that...

I hear you my friend and can relate to not being in the shape I once was... but I certainly wouldn’t wear it on its own for all the reasons you listed

I like that it enables me pick whatever I so want from my existing wardrobe, shirt, jumper, t-shirt, jacket or should I feel so inclined a nice pair of pyjamas and to ride safe in the knowledge that I’m fully protected

Sure it’s not cheap at nearly £200 but, it’s a lot cheaper than buying a few dedicated motorcycle shirts which appealed to me greatly. Having said that... I was at The BikeShed on Tuesday and eyeing up the Rev-it range of shirts... I give it a short while for the itch to build before I once again need to scratch it with a new something

I'd been looking at a variety of shirts too, but I hadn't heard of the Knox armoured string vest. I like the idea. Will have to investigate further...

I like to think of it as more of a teabag!

This thread is taking a very unexpected (and hilariously funny) turn

I'll stick to my trusty Hoodie tho the shirts do look a bit less of a sweat box.

Still get a bit warm but it fits my ample frame quite well

I have a 2XL with a 50 odd inch chest and it fits with a bit of room under, oh and i can get away with 40 to 50 and an air temp of 12 to 14 degrees without getting cold with just a T-Shirt under, anything cooler and it's not pleasant. The other year with 34 degrees of wet sauna in London it was a blessed relief (till i caught a thundershower, soaked thru in about 3 seconds, tho i'v not hit it with fabsil since i bought it.)
