The waterproof and breathable Rev’It Stealth hoodie totally blends in with your casual style. Built from stretch denim 3L material and laminated to the hydratex membrane, incredibly the water just rolls off this hoodie. Made from a flexible material, the Stealth hoody is reinforced with Rev’It in-house developed PWR shield abrasion resistant material. By using the extremely thin CE-rated Seesmart armour, the Stealth looks like a premium high street number that you can wear on the bike. As an upgrade, the Stealth is prepared for a Seesoft CE-level 2 back protector insert. Handily, you can fix the hood to the back with the anchoring button and Rev’It have thoughtfully added a short zip to wear this hoodie with your Rev’It trousers, or connect to the Safeway belt to bike jeans.

- excellent Review by Mr P
The garment is waterproof but slowly absorbs rain water and becomes very very heavy, after 2 hours down the motorway in heavy rain water started to ingress around the pockets so if you know you will be travelling for extended amounts of time in the wet then I would wear an additional overjacket to keep you dry.

- Great casual jacket: Abrasion resistant / Water repellent / Seesmart armour for shoulders and elbows includedReview by Marc
Next to my full leather racing overalls, I was looking for a casual motorbike jacket which would also look good off the bike but still would offer sufficient protection and would not soak up water like a sponge.
Initially tried a full range of 'kevlar' hoodies and whilst some offer a decent level of protection, the fabric itself is quite often not abrasion resistant and neither water repellent, hence a lightweight summer jacket becomes a heavy weight trench coat when encountering rain (not very uncommon in these parts of Europe).
After a long search I stumbled on the Rev'it Stealth Hoodie. It fits all my requirements. It does not look like a motorbike jacket, it's made of an abrasion resistant (proprietary) material, it's water repellent and it comes with (very lightweight and flexible) Seesmart armour for the shoulders and elbows.
- The outside pockets do not have zippers (only a push button);
- When new it does have a chemical odour, which (after 1500 miles) has diminished, but not yet fully vanished.
In addition I would like to express my compliments for the great service which Firecrest offer, especially to:
- Nicki and Sam for offering perfect advice of the sizing.
- Nicki for sending me the missing half of the connection zipper. (Posted on 30/08/2016)
