Familiar with the phrase, ‘horses for courses’? We’ve had this Stealth Hoody from REVIT at the store since the summer, and even though it can be fairly considered a four-season garment, the supposed “off season” is its time to shine. Crappy weather, rain, cold—the Stealth Hoody is game. And because it looks like a standard hoody, no one is the wiser.
This seam-sealed, abrasion resistant shell is completely waterproof and comes with a four-piece complement of REVIT’s amazingly thin CE Level-1 Seesmart shoulder and elbow armor. It’s poly-cotton blend feels like a four-way-stretch Denim, and it’s reinforced with REVIT’s supremely abrasion resistant “PWR Shield” up at the critical impact zones for added protection.
We strongly recommend Revit’s RV back protector upgrade, which fits into this jacket’s ready-made pocket and happens to cover more vertebrae than most other manufacturer’s stock back protectors.
On the hottest summer days, when you need to get across town in sweltering traffic, this all-black, heavy-duty waterproof hoody is going to feel like wearing a body bag. Go for a slow city ride in the midday summer heat and you’ll be DOA.
But as soon as the heat breaks a little, the Stealth’s perforated mesh lining helps wick moisture away, keeping the rider comfortable and airy.
Lots of thoughtful details complete the piece—notice the snap to keep the hood down and out of the way; welded drain ports in the pocket of the waterproof shell, just in case water starts coming in. It also gets subtle reflective striping at the elbows – barely visible in the daytime, but hard to miss at night.
