The Flatbush Vintage Jacket is one of the new 2015 offerings from REV’IT!, the Dutch motorcycle apparel manufacturer that supplies gear to everyone from the riders in the upper echelons of MotoGP right down to the weekend warriors carving their way through the quiet B-roads surrounding most major cities.
With the Flatbush jacket, REV’IT! is targeting the growing market segment that wants world class protection in a package that looks good, and won’t go out of style. For decades we’ve been forced to choose between safe motorcycle gear that looked like it was found in the back of a budget sci-fi costume store and unsafe gear that was comfortable and looked great, so it’s great to now live in an era when we can have our cake and eat it too.
