Jacket Sand 3FJT228 1 Review
3rd generation of our go-anywhere jacket
Detachable thermal and hydratex® liner
VCS Zippers for maximum airflow
SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 armor included
The Sand 3 lives up to its versatile, Swiss Army Knife reputation. Its utilitarian character is second to none, starting with its tough outer shell, which is made of polyester ripstop and PWR | shell, ready to take on outdoor adventures. From the outside in, you’ll find the highly breathable and detachable hydratex® 3L membrane to warrant a 100% waterproof jacket when installed. The detachable thermal liner further expands the use of the Sand 3, even in colder conditions. Taking into account the extreme use and abuse it withstands when developing the Sand 3, we prepared it for both the Leatt and Moveo neck brace, our Challenger cooling vest, and our highly visible Vest Connector HV. A multitude of adjustment options - including adjustment draw cords at the hips - allow you to optimize fit depending on the configuration you choose. SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 armor comes standard, with the option to upgrade by installing our SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector. With both liners removed, the Sand 3 offers incredible ventilation over your arms and body, which is then amplified through a waist adjustment strap that actively promotes airflow. With many storage options and the ability to attach your action camera to the shoulder bands, the Sand 3 opens the way for your next adventure, on and off road!
VCS stands for Ventilation Control System. VCS zippers, when open, allow air to flow through the jacket to help cool the body. The airflow can be regulated by opening or closing them. The Sand 3 jacket embodies this concept to the extreme. Long VCS zippers are placed on the jacket torso, sleeves and back. This configuration of VCS zippers means that the Sand 3 jacket is extremely adaptable. Close the zips, install the hydratex® & thermal linings and ride in cold weather with no issues. Open all the VCS zippers, remove the hydratex® & thermal lining and ride in hot weather... The choice is yours!
The Sand 3 Jacket has a 3-layer configuration. That means you have the ultimate possibilities for climate adaptation while riding. The three layers include: 1) the outer shell, 2) a waterproof lining and 3) a thermal liner. Both the waterproof membrane/liner and the thermal liner are detachable in mere moments, and can also be put back in within a blink of an eye. Let’s say it’s a wet and chilly morning, keep the thermal and waterproof liner in. But perhaps the day takes a turn for the better and the sun comes out and you’re feeling warm. Easily take out your thermal and/or waterproof membrane and keep riding in comfort.
The hydratex® membrane is an extremely thin, porous layer of polyurethane. These microscopic pores are smaller than a water droplet but bigger than a vapour molecule. To protect this highly-breathable, waterproof membrane, we laminate a layer of protective tricot to each side. The 3L hydratex® membrane that is used in the Sand 3 jackets is our lightest, most durable version we produce. This combination of lightweight & durability means the membrane protects against wind and rain when riding in foul weather, but is extremely compact when folded and not in use.
SEEFLEX™ Level 2 CE protection
Certified CE-Level 2 according to the new norm EN1621-1:2012 the SEEFLEX™ protector is the latest innovation from the in-house R&D department. The new norm also tests the impact levels in various temperature ranges. The SEEFLEX™ protectors easily surpass the new norm without sacrificing wearer comfort.

Polyester yarns woven into a ripstop. Thick reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals into the fabric in a crosshatch pattern known as ripstop.
Lorica® is constructed from microfibres that give the material characteristics similar to those of natural leather, including a leather look. This low-maintenance material is not as strong as leather, but softer and lighter, with a consistent thickness that makes it easier to process.
This fabric made of polyester yarn makes a perfect, form-fitting medium for areas at lower risk of impact, keeping riders comfortable.
This material is REV’IT!’s take on Cordura®. Consisting of 100% high-performance Polyamide yarns, PWR|shell takes the best properties of Cordura® - high melting point, tremendous tear- and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability - and puts the unique REV’IT! design stamp on it. PWR|shell provides high-performance protection for every rider.

detachable hydratex® | 3L
A 3-layer construction. The membrane has a layer of protective tricot laminated on each side of the membrane. This results in a waterproof and breathable membrane that is also very durable. This type of membrane also offers maximum flexibility, as it can be removed from the garment: wear the membrane inside the garment when the weather demands it, or take it out when you need maximum ventilation.

- adjustment drawcord
- adjustment straps
- adjustment tab
The REV’IT! flexisnap makes it possible to adjust the collar circumference easily and personalize its fit to each rider. A jacket is often worn in more then one season, and the flexisnap makes it possible to adjust the collar within seconds. During winter a wider collar circumference accommodates combining the jacket with a balaclava or wind collar, while during summer, a wider circumference lets an all-important cooling wind into the collar.
variable height adjustment straps
These adjustment straps help fine-tune the fit of the garment for different riders. Starting by choosing the custom height of the straps—which are attached to a rail-mounted moveable glider—the rider can then easily dial in their precise fit, even while wearing gloves.
