Product Review: Rev’It Neptune Gore-Tex jacket (£369.99)

What’s good about the Rev’It Neptune Gore-Tex?

I’ve only had the jacket for a couple of weeks but so far I’ve been very impressed. I’ve been caught in a torrential downpour and the Gore-Tex waterproof lining worked plus the thermal lining isn’t too bulky so I’ve not seen the need to remove it. There are two zips and press-studs to secure the jacket so it’s a little complicated but it’s worth the trouble as there are no gaps for draughts or rain to penetrate. The cut of the jacket fits perfectly with the aid of the adjusters at the waist.

And what’s not?

It’s a shame the jacket only comes with a pouch for a back protector – for the price I’d rather expect it to come with a CE-approved one. There are short and long connecting zips, which is a little unnecessary – just the long one would suffice.
