Summer review, REVIT Galactic

Landing in my hot little hands April 1st, this will be the perfect start for summer gear reviews!  

Modeled after the Ignition 2, the Galactic ($499) is designed as a sporty summer jacket with a removable waterproof liner.

Of course, for those of us in mild climates like San Francisco, the Galactic would be perfect as a year round option. A couple of differences between this and the Ignition 2 from what I can tell is the fitment: more hourglass through the middle, vs. boxy on the Ignition 2; and sport cut for a full forward riding position. Now that my body shape has changed, I definitely am looking forward to this newer fit.

I'll also be trying out the Challenger insert ($89), which is a cooling vest that zips in. Genius!

I've got a nice list of weekend trips/rides planned to hot places so I'm sure this will come in handy.
