Everything is not what it SEEMS...

If my calculations are right the Rev it, costs about US$394.00 and the jacket below resales for $149.00 and seems very similar to the Rev it but with less style maybe....
What SEEMS and what IS, as you can tell from people who have TRIED and TESTED jackets, are completely different things.
Looking at a picture, to compare jackets - is about as clever, buying a house, based on the pics on the Estate Agent's window, without ever going to view it!
Buying cheap is not always being thrifty: in the past, because we've got to kit out not only ourselves, but kids too - we went for cheaper jackets. None of the cheaper jackets actually lasted till the kids outgrew them... and the adult jackets have broken zips, torn off velcro, leaky seams...
Had we spent more - we wouldn't have had to replace them after only a year - which in the long run, costs us MORE than buying a decent jacket from the start.
Unless you've tried a jacket yourself (or can get a TRUSTED review - not from a mag or website) - you really can't make an intelligent decision.
