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.

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
Good jacket. Can be great if back protector provided. Out of the box, this jacket looks less boxier than pictured. I am 5'7", 175lbs muscular-build and I chose a size 50. The only area I cinch was the waist band on this jacket and the cuffs. I went with the silver only because I feel black is not a good choice for summer jackets. I plan to ride it in Texas heat and in the rain (neither riding scenario yet). I've read some great reviews here/YouTube regarding both benefits of heat resistant and waterproofing. I like the extra red detail in the back lettering and the side arm patch. Oh, I also bought the size 50 regular pants too ( would love to see a touch of red detailing to match). In regards to the lining on this jacket, I felt hot in the pants and warm in the jacket when worn for testing indoors for 1/2 hour. I wore only a t-shirt underneath. In the end, I plan to ride in the heat with the lining off and ride in the rain when it's not hot. April 28, 2014
strong air flow and also removable lining with membrane i used tornado suit both jacket and pants at the +28 celcius in a slow city traffic and it was cool i wear 48 european size leather alpinestars (48 dainese is too small for me mostly in arm-pits area) and revit tornado jacket is even a little bit loose for me, especailly when the lining removed. but 46 would be small. i would say it is not for a skinny teenage body for for a bit older guys. or better say suits not only slim bodies but everybody you have to buy a back protector separately, the jacket is supplied with a very thin foam only. back protector is a regular size, you may find aftermarket. i put a forcefiled one lining looks like a wind jacked, i mean a jacket, not like a lining. seems it can protects from a rain for half an hour or an hours but i personally has not such an experience yet May 21, 2014
Great jacket for Georgia 9 to 10 months of the Year Awesome jacket for Georgia weather. Very cool all summer, especially when moving. With the liner you're good down to high 50's with liner and a T-shirt. You could probably get down to 40's with a good base layer underneath. So in Georgia, you're good from mid-February through mid-November (I'm in the very Southern Metro Atlanta area). Rev'it! Quality and attention to detail is impeccable. The only complaint is that I wish it had separate thermal and waterproof liners. The liner is too hot to put in for rain when temps are above 75-80. I have a thin rain jacket that I bring with me in the summer to wear underneath if it rains. Overall, great value and perfect for riders in the Southeast USA. February 20, 2014
Great jacket, fit is looser than pictures imply Great and versatile jacket. Much better quality and design than a Joe Rocket hi-viz jacket I looked at (albeit that one was $70 less expensive). The only drawback besides the high price is, even at the smallest size, this jacket fits loosely. I'm 5'10" 155lbs with a fairly athletic build and the jacket is made for someone with a wider torso. In any case, it's a great comfortable jacket, is extremely visible, and the removable liner changes it from a super toasty ride, even at about 45 degrees to a nice mesh air cooled jacket comfortable (while moving) even in 85 degree heat. Also, I bought an extra CE-2 rated BACK PROTECTOR as the thin pad that comes with the jacket is merely symbolic. February 3, 2014
Great Jacket I've had this for several hundred miles now. I live in Yuma AZ and wanted a jacket that would flow some air yet also have the ability to handle cooler temps. With the liner in I can go to low 60's with just a t-shirt though it gets a little brisk. This is on a Ducati Monster which for all practical purposes has no wind protection, so you may be able to go lower. Fit is pretty good, I always have a hard time since I am 5'4" 165 with broad shoulders. The sleeves are usually an issue if I can get a jacket to fit, but this one works very well. Highly recommend this jacket for summer and spring, maybe later with layers. November 14, 2013

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

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

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.

A shopper asked: Anthony is hte narrator for the video to aid identifying what size Schuberth C3 helmet would be right for the buyer. In the video, Anthony is wearing a Rev'it jacket that is very simple and not flashy. Do you carry that jacket? If so, what is its name?

Thanks.

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
