Complete Gear Selection for Men and Women Combines Rugged Design with Versatility

Harley-Davidson has partnered with respected European apparel specialist REV’IT! to create gear for adventure touring motorcycle riders. Each piece is designed to offer modern style and to meet expectations for protection, versatility and mobility, on everyday rides and off-road adventures.

REV’IT! shares Harley-Davidson’s values in creating protective motorcycle gear that delivers functionality with refined style. Successful adventure touring gear delivers on providing protection, mobility, visibility, four-season versatility and storage, and this new gear was designed based on extensive REV’IT rider feedback and experience.

Harley-Davidson®/REV’IT!® Adventure Touring Gear

Harley-Davidson® dealers will offer two men’s and women’s head-to-toe gear options – Passage and Grit.

Passage Jacket and Pants

  • The Passage jacket and pants are rugged, comfortable and waterproof. A breathable Hyrdratex® 3L membrane technology lines a shell designed to repel rain and wind, with abrasion and tear resistance. The thermal liner is detachable from the pants for use in warmer weather.
  • The Passage jacket and pants feature a Scholler C-Change Membrane. This adaptable waterproof membrane is placed in areas of the jacket where its stretch properties enhance comfort and mobility.
  • Both jacket and pants feature VCS Aquadefence, a ventilation system designed to enhance airflow in warm-weather riding. Vents can be opened and closed with one gloved hand. Mechanical fasteners secure the vents in an open position, using a system similar to a magnet. When opened, the VCS Aquadefence system allows direct ventilation to the body. When the zipper or panel is closed, it seals to the incorporated rain gutter and the jacket and pants are windproof and waterproof. These features combine to offer the rider multiple ventilation options while retaining waterproof performance when the vents are closed, for versatile all-conditions comfort.
  • PW Shell 500D textile offers tear and abrasion resistance and durability – this gear will stand up to off-road use.
  • The jacket features a detachable kidney belt that supports the rider’s lower back for additional comfort.

Grit Jacket and Pants

  • Designed for four-season use, the Grit jacket and pants feature a removable thermal liner and a removable waterproof liner. The rider can use the thermal liner in cooler weather or on the highway, and remove it for warmer conditions or exertion during trail riding. The thermal and waterproof liners can be combined for comfort in cold, wet weather. If it’s warm and wet, the rider can choose to use only the waterproof liner inside the jacket. The rider gets the versatility of adjustable comfort.
  • The Grit jacket and pants feature the highly breathable Hyrdratex® 3L membrane technology lining a breathable shell designed to repel rain and wind with abrasion and tear resistance, offering the rider gear that is rugged and comfortable. The liner is detachable from the pants.
  • Because the Hyrdratex® 3L liner is detachable the Grit jacket is not fully waterproof.
  • Both jacket and pants feature VCS Aquadefence, a ventilation system designed to enhance airflow in warm-weather riding. Vents can be opened and closed with one gloved hand. Mechanical fasteners secure the vents in an open position, using a system similar to a magnet. When opened, the VCS Aquadefence system allows direct ventilation to the body. When the zipper or panel is closed, it seals to the incorporated rain gutter and the jacket and pants are windproof and waterproof. These features combine to offer the rider multiple ventilation options while retaining waterproof performance when the vents are closed, for versatile all-conditions comfort.
  • PW Shell 500D textile offers tear and abrasion resistance and durability. The customer can be confident this gear will stand up to off-road use.

Common Features of Passage and Grit Jacket and Pants

  • Slim Fit: Reduces bulk and enables movement on the bike.
  • REV’IT! Seeflex CE Level 2 protector at shoulders and elbows in the jacket and at hips and knees on the pants offers rider protection.
  • REV’IT! Seesoft CE Level 2 Back Protector insert offers additional protection.
  • A two-way snap collar offers adjustable airflow to neck for enhanced rider comfort.
  • Flexisnap jacket collar allows the rider to adjust jacket neck circumference to accommodate layering undergarments for enhanced rider comfort.
  • Variable Height Adjustment Straps can be used to fine tune the fit of each piece to enhance rider comfort.
  • Jackets and pants are interchangeable so the customer can mix-and-match for desired features, fit and budget.

MENS AND WOMENS GLOVES

The insulated and waterproof men’s and women’s Passage Adventure Gloves are ready for all-weather action, thanks to Hydratex waterproofing and grip technology that make sure hands stay warmer when it’s cold and drier when perspiring.

Its ventilated structure allows airflow directly to the hand. The same material is used on the thumb, fingers and the palm. Direct airflow is provided through the open structure of the TPR knuckle parts and the Air Stretch Mesh material. A shell of drum-dyed goatskin and PWR Shell 500D stretch fabric is treated with a durable water and soil-resistant finish.
