Rev'it Athos 2 Hi-Vis Vest
Customer Product Reviews
Ticks all the boxes
Four things I need from a hi viz vest; Elastic sides so it hugs the figure. Packs down small for storage. Sturdy zip. Doesn't effect the heat dissipation during the summer. This vest is not cheap but it ticks the boxes. I went one size up from my jacket and it fits fine.
Excellent fitting, poor wear quality
Great fitting product! I brought this high vis to fit over my RST jacket, which is Medium. The high vis I brought is also Medium and the fitting is excellent. There is no flapping at high speed and I was well noticed by other road users. The only issue I have is that the hem that runs around the high vis has already started to wear and in some places come undone only after 2 uses. The overall product is good but the overall quality is poor.
Nice and bright
Nice and bright, fits snug over my casual riding jacket. I am a chest size 42-44 and went for a large size. Only issue is the cost point being a little more then it ought to cost. Also why can't they make the zip out of metal instead of plastic?
Good fitting product. I brought this product to go over my RST totally black leather jacket. I wear a large jacket and brought a large Athos 2, fit was great and after using it on the bike I was pleased to see that due to the elasticated side panels that there was no flapping at 70 mph on the motorway. Also I felt like I was more visible to other road users, this Athos 2 vest is water resistant, it was drizzling while I was out on my ride and the vest did stay dry inside but it was not raining so this was untested.
As good as a hi-vis vest can be
This is a good quality hi-vis vest, that does what it says on the tin. I'm 6ft but slim and had to go with a large once over my armoured jacket. Would have liked to have had an external pocket for ease of access, as this goes over my jacket pockets. All in all, a good product that makes me feel more confident when riding and looks better than bog-standard vests.
Safety, comfy, stylish
Great quick service. Purchased after a colleague bought the same jacket and gave it glowing reviews. Used to think wearing a hi-vis was a chore. Order your usual size in jacket and it'll fit great, you want it a little snug to allow the elastic to do its job.
Like a lot of the reviews for this product - great fit, no flapping material, great material and zip works very well. Whilst a little pricey it is worth it given the quality and fit. I ordered a L size but too small. Very easy to return and get the XL size which was a much better fit over the jacket.
Great safety vest, I bought the Large, I read that there was enough room in it to fit over your clothing so order the size you normally wear in clothes, needless to say it didn't fit, I wear a Gortex jacket with separate back protector, ended up buying a 3XL which fits over the top of the clothing perfectly, it doesn't flap around and I think was worth the money, as always the guys at SBS were great, exchanged the product with no hassle.
Does the job
So its a high visibility jacket right? Yes, and its expensive right? Well yes, but it's also Rev'it, which normally means quality. For a reflective jacket this one is great, good thick reflective bands, and the sizing works well over my jackets. The zip is easy to use, and the yellow is much more fluorescent than most other jackets I've seen. Size wise, go for your normal size at it will be fine.
