Rev'It! Sand 4 suit Sarah Schilke WomenRidersNow
REV’IT!’s Sand 4 H2O Ladies jacket, pants, and gloves offer riders a high quality all-weather, all-terrain riding suit.

Always on the quest for the perfect do-everything riding suit, this new offering from Dutch brand REV'IT! fits the bill for both street touring as well as its intended use: adventure riding. The rugged, well-fitting suit performs well in all weather conditions and is highly versatile to match your riding style.

REV'IT! Sand 4 H2O ladies jacket and pants make for a comfortable and functional all-weather adventure riding suit that also works well for day rides, touring, and commuting. Matching gloves complete the look, but are best for warm and dry weather riding. With the jacket at $529.95 and pants at $389.95, the suit is competitively priced for an outfit loaded with protection and comfort features.

REV’IT! Fit and Finish

I am a longtime fan of REV'IT!, and what always impresses me is the consistency of the brand’s sizing and fit across the line. True to form, the Sand 4 jacket and pants fit me perfectly right off the rack. At 5 feet 4.5 inches tall and 145 pounds, I wear a size 38 jacket and pant in everything I own from REV'IT!.

Rev'It! Sand 4 suit jacket and pants
Available in sizes 34 to 46 in Black, Silver/Black,and Camo Brown, the Sand 4 jacket is typical of Rev’It!’s European cut. The company’s jackets tend to be narrow in the shoulders, chest, and waist with a longer torso and sleeve length. Women with a smaller waist and broader shoulders may want to size up. Curvy women might have a difficult time finding the right fit. Just be sure to consult RevIt!'s fit chart which is available on each product webpage.

The REV'IT! Sand 4 jacket and pants are constructed of durable abrasion-resistant ripstop fabric lined with breathable mesh. Reinforced durable fabric in the impact areas enhance the safety. Tabs and cinches enable the rider to customize the fit and comfort.

Rev'It! Sand 4 pant
The Sand 4 H2O Ladies pants retail for $389.99 and come in black or silver/black. There are three lengths with various sizing; Short 36-44, Standard 34-46, and Long 38-42.
Rev'It! Sand 4 gloves
Sand 4 gloves cost $119.99 and come in black or the Light Gray/Black shown here. Sizing runs from XS to XL.

The matching gloves carry on the look of REV'IT!'s Sand 4 H2O suit, but are not waterproof. The soft goat leather palms are instantly supple and comfortable providing excellent grip. Perforation offers ventilation.

Sand 4 glove sizing is spot on—I normally wear a size L women's glove, and the size L Sand glove fits perfectly. If you aren’t sure about your size, you can find the Rev'It! sizing guide on its web page here.

The Sand 4 is comfortable whether riding in a seated or standing position. The seat of the pants includes gripper patches to help the rider hold the seated position during aggressive riding in wet or dry conditions.

REV'IT! Sand 4 Keeps You Warm and Dry

REV'IT!'s Sand 4 H2O jacket and pants have many features for inclement and variable weather conditions, including warmth and waterproof liners. Wearing the gear with all of the liners can get bulky but it sure is nice to stay warm and dry.

The Sand 4 H2O suit keeps me warm and dry during a scenic ride through the Arizona desert in torrential rain. Since the gloves are more warm (dry) weather oriented, I opt for waterproof gloves on this ride.
Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O thermal liner
The Sand 4 jacket’s detachable quilted thermal liner is standard issue providing a great fit, but not offering significant warmth. On very cold rides I prefer a heated jacket liner instead. For warding off a chill, zip in this liner without adding much bulk.

The included hydratex lite waterproof liner can also be worn as a standalone lightweight rain jacket. The material is well sealed and stretchy providing maximum comfort without bulk and helps with range of movement for adventure riding.

Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O hydratex waterproof liner
I’m not a fan of the look of the blue liner with black seam sealer that comes with the gray/black Sand 4 jacket, but it sure does its job! The black and the brown camo versions of the Sand 4 come with an all black hydratex liner.
Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O pant liners
The Sand 4 pant thermal and hydratex liners are easily layered through a careful series of zippers.

All of the included liners are easy to remove. On not-so-cold rain or adventure rides, I find that just the waterproof liner is enough to keep my legs warm with less bulk.

Sand 4 Pockets

Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O jacket pockets
The Sand 4 H2O jacket features a number of interior and exterior pockets. These waterproof exterior pockets utilize a unique fold-forward overlap closure.
Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O pant pockets
The Sand 4 H2O pants also feature folded zippered waterproof pockets. The folded design is an extra step that works to keep dirt and water out of the pockets.

The pant pockets are great for stashing a phone for easy access for taking trail side pictures. It gets a little difficult to pull out of the pocket when the suit is wet. But the waterproof pocket keeps the phone dry.

Rev'It! Sand 4 H2O jacket back pocket
A bonus map/storage pocket is included on the lower portion of the back of the jacket. The plastic tab on the middle back of the jacket is intended to secure the rear of the optional hi-viz vest attachment.

Be Visible!

I was worried about the light colored suit getting dirty in the rain and mud, but most of it washes out easily. You could choose an all-black Sand 4 H2O suit, or the brown/camo colorway, but the light color of the gray/black provides added visibility in inclement weather. It’s worth the somewhat dirty look to me.

Rev'It! Sand 4 reflective
The Sand 4 jacket and pants both have excellent reflective features in front, back and on the sides of the arms to help with visibility on the road. The two plastic tabs on either side of the front zipper are receptors for Rev'It!’s optional removable hi-viz vest for riders who want even more visibility.

Stay Cool and Comfortable

When the temperature heats up it’s easy to stow the liners in a bag or leave them at home and continue wearing the Sand 4 gear. The REV'IT! Sand 4 H2O jacket and pants have multiple zippered vents and vented panels for keeping riders cool. All of the zippers you may need to deploy while riding feature big pulls that are easy to find and use with gloves on.

Rev'It! Sand 4 suit
As impressed as I am with the Sand 4 H2O suit in cold weather, it definitely does not disappoint when the blazing hot sun comes out. The versatile jacket and pants convert easily into a well-ventilated suit thanks to the many well placed zippered openings.
Rev'It! Sand H2O jacket vents
The Sand 4 H2O jacket features vents in front, rear, and in the arms. Women will love the under-breast vents that open from the front zipper to the side seam, allowing major airflow for cooling relief to a usually hot and sweaty area of the body.

The jacket collar has an adjustable closure with a snap-back feature on the collar to help with airflow.
Rev'It! Sand 4 mesh zipper
It doesn’t get much better than the additional complete body cooling with a vented front zipper like this one. The main zipper can be left open with the secondary zipper employed, which converts the front of the jacket into a mesh strip.

Long dual vents on the back allow the air from the front breast, arm, and zipper vents to circle around the torso and exhaust out the back allowing for a constant stream of fresh air.

Rev'It! Sand 4 pant vents
The Sand 4 pants have these awesome leg vents that let quite a lot of air in, especially when standing while adventure riding. The vents even have a snap system to keep them open.

Top Rated Protection

The ladies Sand 4 H2O jacket and pants come with REV'IT!’s SEEFLEX CE level 2 armor in the shoulders, elbows, and knees, and level 1 in the hips. It’s all held into place with fitment adjusting straps on the arms, waist, and lower leg. Adjustable tabs at the cuffs, upper arms, and ankles, and a drawstring in the waist provide a customized fit.

Rev'It! back protector
The jacket includes a pocket to add one of REV’IT!’s optional back protectors. I added the CE level 2 Seesoft type KN back protector for $62.99.

I can’t stand riding with a jacket and pants that don’t zip together allowing the jacket to ride up and the pants to (ack!) fall down. Luckily, the REV’IT! Sand 4 pants and jacket offer both short and full-circumference connection zippers. 

Additionally, the pants come prepared for the addition of REV'IT! suspenders for riders who may own a different brand of jacket.

REV'IT! Sand 4 connection zipper
In the summer I use the shorter connection zipper to get airflow around my waist. In the winter I use the full circumference zipper to keep cold air out.

Riders wear different boots depending on the riding style. The leg gussets in the Sand 4 H2O pants enable a rider to easily accommodate even bigger boots, like my REV'IT! Expedition GTX boots (review coming soon!).

Rev'It! Sand 4 pant leg Velcro
The Sand 4 pant leg’s Velcro strips allow the rider to cinch the lower leg down over low profile boots like the ones I wear street riding, or leave them expanded for even full-on dirt boots like the ones I wear on my enduro bike.

REV’IT! Sand 4 Ladies Warm Weather Gloves

The Sand 4 Ladies gloves are specifically designed and engineered for warm/dry weather use and feature exceptional grip, breathability, and ventilation. Thermoplastic rubber (TPR) palm sliders ensure comfort with the highly abrasion resistant protection.

REV'IT! Sand gloves
The Sand 4’s super soft goat leather palm instantly conforms to your hand and grip just enough not to deform the overall shape and fit.
REV'IT! Sand gloves knuckle
The top of the gloves are constructed of abrasion-resistant mesh stretch fabrics with perforation holes combined with TPR knuckle and finger protection that aids ventilation.

Even with the suppleness of the goatskin palms, I find over a long ride my knuckles start to ache because the TPR knuckle isn’t very giving. I hope this will eventually work itself out with more stretching out of the palms.

REV'IT! Sand 4 gloves
The short gauntlet gloves can easily be pulled on with a pull tab on the cuff and then secured with the Velcro wrist strap.
