The REV’IT! Opera motorcycle jacket is designed as a jacket for the urban motorcyclist (or scooter rider) who needs a riding jacket that can be worn around town without looking like an escapee from the set of a B-grade scifi film.
The Opera jacket is made from a cotton-wool mix and has a waterproof lining to ensure 100% protection against rain, snow and sleet. The cuffs and collar both have knitted closures to ensure that they’re wind and waterproof, and the Opera comes pre-fitted with CE-approved KNOX lite armour in the elbows and shoulders.
