The success of the summer Eclipse Lady made REV'IT! decide to develop a more seasoned and waterproof yet competitively priced version for the remaining seasons as well. The Shade H2O is exactly that: the basics of motorcycling in a jacket that is constructed as simply as possible, without being simple.
The Shade H2O Lady also exists in a men's version. Without the leopard print but equally 'urban jungle'.
"Make it as simple as necessary, but not simpler", is a saying of Albert Einstein and it is perfectly applicable here. The Shade H2O Lady celebrates simplicity but doesn't drop any stitches and, in the end, still has something to offer. The outer shell in 600D-polyester is durable and with an integrated Hydratex® mesh G-liner you get a breathable but waterproof buffer.
The removable thermal lining makes the Shade H2O Lady the counterpart of a summer jacket. And also allows you to bridge the gap between the Shade and the Eclipse throughout the year. It explains the absence of ventilation zippers in this Shade Lady: why hollow out the winter or mid-season version when you can hang a perfectly summery version on your coat rack?
Underneath, there's still something going on, because a motorcycle jacket of this caliber and with these ambitions obviously has sufficient impact protection on board. SEESMART™ elbow and shoulder protectors do the job perfectly, and those who wish can fit a SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector. In the same theme, laminated, reflective accents give you extra visibility.
The Shade H2O Lady is short. Typical REV'IT, but we'll go even further. The Shade H2O Lady is neither too wide nor too narrow, for a good reason: you put on a jacket like this one because it's practical, when the need arises. Not after a whole changing session. Just a convenient cut, under which almost anything goes. Short is indeed the right choice, and with two belt loops you can easily and comfortably prevent the thing from bulging and you're on the road with your lower back bare. With a collar with snap button, an extra button on the upper arms and velcro strips on sleeve ends and waist you can adjust everything just enough to always stay comfortable.
There is storage space in the two zippered side pockets and the inner pocket. The combination with a good pair of motorcycle jeans seems a logical first choice.
There is maintenance clothing and then there is clothing maintenance. Good, solid motorcycle clothing is an investment in comfort and personal safety. So invest in its maintenance after your purchase and enjoy your gear for longer. We put the best tips and tricks on this maintenance page.
