Road Trip: Visiting the Revzilla Showroom in Philly

My daughter Chloe recently outgrew her textile riding jacket. Having her sized and fitted into a decent piece of gear for the upcoming season was something I wanted to do in person. The biggest challenge? Finding someplace with a good selection of quality gear and a range of sizes available to try on.

Revzilla.

Revzilla Showroom - Philly

As a very satisfied online customer for a few years now, popping in to their new brick and mortar showroom seemed like a perfect idea. And… we could get cheesesteaks while we were in town. Win-Win! 

When we walked into the retail space we were greeted by a salesperson – Bobby. We went on to work with him throughout our time in the shop. He was patient, accomodating, knowledgeable and above all friendly. He didn’t give that full court obnoxious sales press that I hate so much.

He was clearly familiar with the products and was able to answer any questions we had and made recommendations where appropriate.

Bonus Points: He was able to look at me and my daughter and correctly size us by sight for REV’IT jackets.

What was different about our shopping experience at Revzilla, when compared to other motorcycle retail spaces?

Selection

The biggest differentiating factor. Helmets, boots, gloves, jackets, pants, full suits – all in a range of sizes, fabrics, brands and price points right on the floor.

On top of that – after eyeballing a few items, Bobby checked the computer to see what they had in their onsite warehouse and brought out different color and size options in more than one of our potential choices.

Attitude

Though the store is stocked with some high end items I never got a whiff of that pseudo-exclusive, douchebaggy vibe that some stores take on. Sure they sell upscale brands like  Rukka and Klim but they also offer middle of the road brands for folks whose pockets aren’t as deep.

Attentiveness

The sales staff were readily available. They seemed to know the line between being pushy and being absentee.

If you’ve been a fan of Revzilla online store, you will have a great shopping experience in their showroom – it feels like a natural extension of their webfront.

The Goods

After looking through the jackets and having carte blanche to choose whatever made her heart sing from leather to textile to…whatever, Chloe selected a REV’IT Levante jacket in silver and a pair of Held gloves.

She is her Momma’s girl :)

And with me being the curious type – I tried on a jacket. Or two. And I may have accidentally bought a REV’IT women’s Airwave for the summer and a REV’IT women’s Ventura because… because Bobby was a good salesperson.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

It’s defintely worth a stop-in.

So jealous!!!

I bought my Sidi boots and Rev’it Siren Jacket through revzilla.com and was quite pleased.

You guys get all the cool stores back East. A little too far from Oregon for a weekend road trip. Sigh.

Yea – i really do. I’ve been wearing the Sand jacket/pants for a couple years now. It’s been great. But, getting a woman’s cut feels so much better!

Yeah yeah yeah, RevZilla rocks; already know that. What I want to know is: did you do Geno’s or Pat’s cheesesteaks? :^)

Geno’s is the one with the Freedom Fries right?
And Bobby is the skinny gentleman with long hair?

I went up there December of 2012 with a buddy and had a hell of a time finding the old location; new one looks much more accessible. If I’m correct Bobby helped us out as well that day and he was top notch. I’ll be pulling the hammer on some Forcefield Body Armor in a few weeks from them.

Congrats on the new gear. =)

You know, I’m not sure about the fries. Geno’s is very… orange.
I haven’t eaten there. We agreed to try it next time.

Yea, Bobby was around 50, longish hair. Nice guy, right?

Hopefully we’ll get a chance to see you ON a bike this year ;)

My father in-law had is 90th and we flew into PA to pick him up and drive him down to VA where the rest of my wife’s family was. After the party we headed south to Savannah before returning to Philly to head back home. And Revzilla is very close to the airport, we just had to stop…

It is a very nice shop and the staff there are first rate.
