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
Great fit and flows plenty of air. I purchased this jacket to replace an old Dainese mesh jacket. I ordered a size 50 which was one size smaller than the size chart showed for my measurements, as recommended by Revzilla staff. The fit is very good although the sleeve length could be a little longer for my 35 inch arm length. I love the jacket so far for summer riding. I'm looking forward to using it in the fall with the liner to see how it works in the shoulder seasons. My only complaint is the cheap back protector that comes with the jacket. At this price level you should get something better than a cheap foam insert. August 26, 2013
Good fit - sort of! I bought this jacket based on the measurement guide, and the shoulders fit me perfectly. However, the waist balloons like a tent! Revzilla says it's made for the American market and our larger waistlines, but I could put on 40 pounds and this thing would still be loose. On top of that, the zipper is backwards from what I'm used to. Like a women's jacket, the pull is on the left! If this is made for the American market, why use a European zipper styling? But, let no opportunity go untaken, I've heard, so I am using the extra room to ride with my Geigerrig hydration pack under the jacket. In other areas, the jacket seems well made. The pockets are deep and retain their contents even with their zippers open. the sleeves could use a better tightening system, but it's adequate. I like the inner liner, and I could see wearing it without the outer jacket, just as a windbreaker. It's large, too, but maybe I'll eat a big dinner sometime... :-) July 30, 2013
Very Comfortable Jacket Hey guys, After weeks of browsing the internet I finally decided to pull the trigger on the Rev it HV jacket. Thanks to all of the videos I was able to et the right jacket the first time, and if I didn't I wasn't to worried with the free return policy. I ended up buying a size 52 My dimensions; Height- 6'2" Chest- 42" Waist- 33" Sleeve (dress shirt)- 34/35 Neck (dress shirt)- 16 1/2 And I have a bit of a long torso for a 6'2" This jacket fits me great! Sleeves were perfect, and it felt long enough that my belt was covered. I hate the jackets were the bottom of the jacket is way above the belt, doesn't look right in my opinion. Just putting it on and you feel like you have a jacket that was well made. Oh yeah, it is super bright!!! I did a couple tests with my bro in the car behind me and he said it made a big difference as far as visibility. Riding in the Washington DC area this is a must! Adam August 12, 2013
Wonderful hot weather/commuting jacket A whole lot of this jacket is mesh panels, it flows air extremely well. The jacket as a whole is lightweight, very comfortable, but still seems built well, or as well as you should expect something with so much mesh to be. Previously I had a Joe Rocket jacket which blew seams out just wearing it. The Tornado appears to be far better constructed, heavy stitching at seams, and I like the way they use mesh panels in low-likelihood contact areas and heavy cordura anywhere near seams or contact points. Despite feeling very lightweight it feels well constructed. I like the cinch straps on the arms near the elbows, which help keep the pads in place, and at the waist. It's not hard to get it to fit. The boxy cut allows it to fit well even if you don't have the physique of a greek god; it's roomy and comfortable even if you have a bit of a paunch. The zipper is left-handed, unusual for male American clothing, but not hard to get used to. The wrist cuffs are velcro and cannot be opened up enough to fit glove gauntlets under. I'm not a big fan of that; I would rather have zippers that open up. The liner is easy to put in and take out, but has enough attachment that it isn't a pain in the neck when it's in. I'm not really a fan of liners for rain protection, I use outer layers for that, so I have no idea how well it works in the rain. It's warm enough for three-season wear though, making this my commuting suit of choice these days when paired with the Tornado pants (strongly recommended!), at least if the weather is halfway decent and most especially if it is hot. The included back pad is worthless -- it's too thin to do anything at all. Its only claim to fame is that it passes a lot of air, and in that tradeoff I think it goes far too far in the wrong direction. You really need to replace it with something; consider that when pricing it out. I'm a little surprised at how bad it is since the elbow and shoulder pads are good quality. I replaced it with a SAS-TEC pad. I was quite surprised to get airflow through the back even with the SAS-TEC pad on; it's not a lot, but it's better than anything else I use, presumably because it has a few holes in it. Even with the pad the jacket feels light and airy. I don't think the mesh panels would hold up very well in a slide, although the edges and hard contact points are much more durable stuff. Even so, I'd rate this below full single-crash coverage, although perhaps not by much, and the good pads in the shoulders and elbows and cinch straps give it a boost in my opinion. In any case it's hugely better than the Joe Rocket jacket. So: If you're looking for the best crash protection, you should probably look somewhere else. (I'd suggest leather.) But if you're looking for a suit that provides decent protection and excellent ventilation, this is good -- as long as you replace the useless back pad. June 24, 2013
Great Jacket Airflow is great, can feel it even when I'm just walking. It fits me really nice although I do wish it was more tapered at the bottom so it would fit my frame better. The armour is great...I wish it had some chest pads though, then I would look like a superhero, haha June 18, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
"" ": Matches my pants which are amazing. Both perfect for summer and cooler days with the waterproof insulated lining. Can't wait til I get it so I can have my complete set of gear. Mar 19, 2014

Merrill O: quality and features I needed for summer riding Sep 17, 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 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
