PWR|shell 3-layer 500D
This material consist of three functional layers that are laminated together to create a single strong layer of all-weather protection. A waterproof membrane is laminated directly onto the inside of the abrasion-resistant PWR|shell, and a protective inner lining is laminated onto the membrane itself to prevent run and tear damage.
Consisting of 100% high-performance polyamide yarns, PWR|shell 1000D takes the best properties of a nylon with a high melting point, tremendous tear and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability and then puts the unique REV’IT! design stamp on it. PWR|shell provides high-performance protection for every rider.

A 3-layer fabric. The innovative REV’IT! Hydratex®|3L Pro membrane consists of three functional layers, which are laminated together to become a single strong layer of all-weather protection. A waterproof membrane is laminated directly onto the inside of the abrasion-resistant outer shell, and a protective inner lining laminated onto the membrane itself prevents run-and-tear damage. Water repellence, light weight, and high breathability are all benefits of the 3-layer system.
I have had these trousers for a year and have used them in all weathers for commuting in the city and longer motorway journeys.
They are very practical and the long zips on the legs allow me to put them on and take them off while wearing my boots. The Strapper suspenders are a good add on which are comfortable and keep the trousers in place. I changed the knee protectors to the SeeSmart RV30 which is more comfortable and also means the trousers can be folded up a bit smaller, although they do provide less protection.
Some rain has occasionally seeped in during heavy or prolonged rain. This happens at the top of the leg zippers where a seam at the end of the zip allows water to get between the zip and the flap behind. I may try using some StormSure to try and prevent this happening.
A longer leg option for the size S would be useful.
I have this pants for approximatly 3 years now. I use it on a daily basis, on a sporty naked bike
- easy to put on and off
- easy to store in my topcase
- strong materials
- the zippers scratch my tank
- due to sporty sitting position on my bike on very wet conditions water enters at the upper side of the zippers (wet at the genitals)
- the velcro’s on the underside of the legs might be improved with a longer contact surface (the tend to come loose)
- more flexible kneepads would be nice, Some days (but weirdly not always) they hurt my knees
Revit please consider moving the zippers to the outside of the pants. I’d probably buy these pants again then.
Heb deze broek vorige herfst gekocht; als upgrade voor die andere 'overbroek' van Revit.
Redenen om te upgraden: protectie, functionaliteit en weerbestendigheid. (val)Protectie is in orde, functionaliteit is ook verbeterd (instap, zakje, verstelmogelijkheden). Als commuter broek is ie echter alleen geschikt voor droog weer of bij lichte regen en korte stukken. Wanneer het flink regent lekken de naden door, vooral in het kruis. Zit je met een vochtige broek in vergadering; niet tof. Ook de onderkant van de broek houd water niet best tegen.
Ik rijd > 20000km per jaar, alle seizoenen. Voor deze prijs en met de belofte van waterdichtheid had ik zeker meer verwacht.
