love this jacket It looks great and feels great. Let's great amount of air in and has nice wind/rain protection with the addition of the inner layer. Made good use of the very accurate size chart- size 50 fits me, 6'3'' 183lbs, very well indeed. Added a back protector which fits perfectly. November 24, 2014
This is a nice jacket that can work all around airflow, protection and a thermal liner, plus its nice to look at (not ugly). i think its about all one could want at the pricepoint. thanks and i'm looking forward to being cool during the summer runs. November 3, 2014
Nice and cool! It is the perfect jacket in the summer.Wind comes inside of the jacket. It is very cool. Inner jacket is not required in the summer.Should not contain is good insulation material. Protector of the back is not as standard it is regrettable. My height is 172cm. Weight is 58㎏. It is slightly larger in size of 48. October 13, 2014
Great Jacket This is my first jacket so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, it served me well this summer in Jersey where temperatures can range from the high 90s and humid to low 50s some early mornings. I have not had the chance to wear it during colder weather yet but I think it should fair well even into the low 40s. The jacket breathes extremely well and remains dry when the liner is in. It feels durable and very comfortable. September 8, 2014
Very good jacket This is a very good product, very well made and with all the features indicated in the web page. I ordered it following the size chart, and the product that i received was really large for me. Recommendation: update size chart August 4, 2014
this product has excellant air flow the salesperson at the philly store listened to what i needed and instantly recommended this procduct she was spot on.this jascket has excellant airflow and quality. June 16, 2014
Excellent Summer Jacket So this is my first motorcycle jacket as I am just starting to ride motorcycles for the first time in my life. I live in NC so summers are generally in the 80-90 range with 80-100% humidity. Spring/Fall though are beautiful in the high 70s low 80s and because of this I wanted a jacket that could handle it. I did a lot of research on leather, textile, and mesh jackets and finally ended up with the Rev'it Tornado Jacket and am very pleased with my purchase. Pros -Great quality (what else would you expect from Rev'it) -Airflow (even walking while wearing this jacket provides airflow like crazy -Protection (elbow, and shoulder pads are top notch but sit so well i usually forget they are there) -Utility (included thermal/waterproof liner really helps to cover the 3 season use of this jacket) Cons - A whole lot of mesh, while this doesn't seem like a Con up front I was a tad surprised how much mesh there is on this jacket. Every single "low" impact area has been replaced with mesh which makes it amazing in the airflow compartment but I am a little nervous about how that will function during a slide. To counter this nervousness the jacket is much heavier and feels more substantial to some of the other mesh jackets I tried on, also the "high" impact areas are very well protected with textile/pads. - Thermal/Waterproof liner, this thing is great however if you get caught in a summer storm you will be HOT! You cannot get the waterproofing without the thermal retention. Not the biggest deal but thought it was worth mentioning I really like this jacket, looks great, performs great, will need to buy a new jacket for colder riding but for the summer it is hard to beat. June 2, 2014
This jacket has excellent airflow I needed a jacket with the best airflow possible for a hot climate and have a liner for cool weather also. This jacket did both. The liner was a much heavier weight that I had expected. Will be able to use this jacket way into the fall also. Cons: wished the arm and waist adjustments were Velcro. The buckle does not seem to stay put when adjusted. June 23, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm trying to decide whether to get the REVIT Tornado or a leather jacket like Alpinestars Mert. I'm concerned about the durability of the textile compared to the leather in case of a crash. How does the textile in the Tornado compare (polyester 600D?) compare to leather in abrasion resistance? Also, how does the Tornado compare to the Turbine (Cordura 1000D and Superfabric)? Overall I'm just trying to get the safest jacket I can. I live in Austin TX and would like to get by with one jacket if possible for all seasons (usually it does not get below 50F). Nov 24, 2011

KenO: Without comparing the specific jackets, I can speak to the trade-offs between leather and textile in choosing cycling gear.
Leather is almost always going to be more abrasion resistant if you go down on the pavement. High quality leather gear is the best possible barrier between your skin and the road. The exceptions to the general rule are thinner "style over substance" leather gear as opposed to the best textile gear with 1000 denier at contact points and other more exotic compounds, including leather, at the most likely points of contact.
The downsides of leather gear boil (pun intended) down to heat retention and sensitivity to water. Even perforated leather can be pretty hot in Texas, and rain is not the friend of leather. There will be times when leather gear is just not the right choice for the conditions, and if you decide to go anyway, a decent textile suit is infinitely better than nothing.
I would say that overall, a high quality textile jacket will be the most versatile seasonally, and the trade-off between protection and comfort is not too steep that you'll feel unduly exposed. Later on, you can add a good leather jacket for the many times conditions warrant it.

Mike C: John,
I'm not sure if you will see this but I am also in S. Florida and i am concerned with the same thing you mentioned. In the summer I tend to not wear a jacket because it is just too unbearable anytime you have to stop, which is quite often down here. I want protection but if I can stand the heat, I wont wear it. In the summers now I don't wear a jacket and would like to get in the habit of wearing one. Since you posted in 2012, you have had it for quite sometime. How do you feel about it now? Still recommend it or have you replaced it with something else? Thanks in advance, Mike

John J: I bought the REV'IT Tornado for my riding in the FL Keys heat. I also have a leather jacket that I some times wear on I-95 or the Turnpike, for everything else I use the Tornado. I'm not a scientist or have tested the durability in a slide down the pavement but I'm sure the leather will hold up better. I know leather thickness is a big factor but I use both, textile and leather. Some days with the humidity even the perforated leather gets to be too much. My philosophy is even if the textile isn't as crashworthy as leather I WILL wear it on hot days. Jun 18, 2012

TacoSupreme: I have the Turbine Jacket and I do not think it would be as tough as leather. However you would be very hot in the leather in Austin, TX. I would get the turbine for the better airflow, and I think the protection it provides against abrasion would still be sufficient. Mar 26, 2012

flynnski: I low-sided through gravel at 15-20mph wearing the Tornado, and it was absolutely unharmed. Not a scratch or tear on it, and the armor did its job perfectly. Would definitely recommend it. Oct 10, 2012

Damien M asked: I recently purchased the Tornado pants. I really like the airflow they provide during the summer time, and the liner that is included is a great addition for the colder days. I would really like to know if there is another liner option for the jacket? My current summer jacket has served it's days and is due to be replaced. It was a basic Joe Rocket mesh jacket, that had a simple wind liner. This liner was great for the days where it's a little chill early am, and then the liner packs away quickly. It also provided a little extra protection when it rained in the summer. If the liner in this jacket is the same as the pants, it's too much for the summer time.

I already have a First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket for the cold days.

Fredrick M: Damien - I'm not familiar with the pants liner but the Tornado jacket liner may be similar: its slightly insulated and is a bit more than just a wind/water barrier. It works well for me on cool mornings but definitely becomes too much/too warm once the temps rise, and I remove it, as needed. I'm not aware of other liner options for this jacket.

For the record, I have been very happy with the Tornado jacket (styling, quality, functionality, etc.) and, being in the NE US, the liner works great for me. I would recommend it to anyone. - Erick

DARREN R: The liner in the Tornado pants and jacket is great. The liner is not cheap but nice liner to walk around in. Make sure that the temperature is below 70 F before you put in the jacket. Oct 29, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi there..I am following you from Greece !! My name is Steve and i have a question about sizing for the Tornado
I am very athletic with 112cm chest and 90cm waist..I am between 54 for the chest and 50 for waist..What should i get ?
I am wearing now a Revit Sand size Large and it fits with both liners on very tight..With the hydratex only less tight and
without the liners it fits i can say regular..If i buy now a Revit Sand again i would buy it in size XLarge
In the Tornado ?? An Airwave that i try from a friend fit me the XL good enough..With only a t-shirt inside

My second and last question is which Jacket from Revit to buy ? Tornado or Levante ?

Which jacket from these is better ?

Thanks in advance !!

A s: I currently own the Tornado and it is my favorite jacket. It is very comfortable from 15C and up. Depending on the type of bike you ride could be a bit chilly under 15C but the liner is quite warm. Most other jackets I find get too warm above 30C and the Tornado is excellent. Wearing a cooling vest underneath is very effective as this jacket allows incredible airflow through it! As far as size is concerned I would say a 56 would be perfect as your chest is at the upper range of that size but this Rev'It jacket fits a little a looser than the other ones and sounds like you would be wearing it most of the time without the liner. Hope this helps, Rev'It makes some of the finest clothing on the market. Cheers! Mar 11, 2014

William B: Based on what you have said...I would say an XL. A large fits me perfectly...but i have narrow shoulders and narrow waste.

Airwave = I'm a large.

Tornado for sure! I LOVE the jacket...and the zip-in liner packs up super small...throw it in your tank bag or backpack for early morning/late night rides when it gets cool.

ToneHz: I am 6' 2 ", 40" chest, 184 lb., and I wear a 52 jacket. BTW, I have a 34" waist, and wear a 54 in the Tornado pant. I've done to 2550 miles in 9 days in the Tornado jacket and pant, riding over a mountain pass in with snow on the ground crossing the Cascades in Northern Washington, and came back through Northern California a few days later in about 104 degrees #I removed the waterproof thermal liners, of course#. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Feb 9, 2013

imataiwanezz: You sound just a little bit bigger than me, sizing depends on the brand/jacket you want to get as well. I personally am an Icon Gear Nut lol, I'd suggest getting a medium Icon jacket - cant go wrong with the Icon Contra Jacket. I got the Contra Redeemer in a Med and it was just a tad big for me it should fit you fine. Unless you lie something super big on you but then it just makes you look fat thats why I returned it and got the small lol. I'm right at that cut off between small and medium, sounds like you are at the med/large borderline. Try an Icon jacket in med and should fit you great. If you wanted a Speed and Strength I'd go with large.

Also the Contra jackets are upgradable to the CE Striker Back Protector which I would highly recommend. Simple to slip in and super comfortable as well.

Chris K: We do carry this jacket! It is the REV'IT! Ranger and is a mid-layer not a riding jacket. It is designed to block the wind and keep you warm as you would wear it underneath an armored riding jacket. I've included links to the product and video below. Apr 25, 2011
