REV'IT! Tornado Pants

The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100% waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them.


  • Outer shell: polyester rib, PWR|shell mesh, polyester 600D, PWR|wax 500D, PWR|shell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg;
  • Insulation: detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane
  • Waterproofing: detachable hydratex | G-liner (5000mm H2O)
  • Breathability: detachable hydratex | G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs)
  • Composition:
    • outer shell: 86% polyamide, 14% polyester
    • lining: 100% polyester
    • membrane: 100% polyamide (100% polyurethane coating, insulation 100% polyester)
  • Protection: Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 (sold separately)

Good but not all season warm climate I brought these after lots of research for my first pair of riding pants which I wanted to cover all seasons. Living in Auckland, New Zealand we have hot humid summers, and then cooler, went winter but not what you would call cold. Picked up these and the first couple of weeks without the liner in, awesome! Problem is that as the liner is thermal, it just doesn't work in anything slightly warm so on the first wet day it was 20c/80f and I was boiling hot! Then another day I was riding home without the liner when I got caught in a heavy shower and as expected I was drenched. But the problem is these pants get extremely heavy when wet so for me they are a no go and I have since brought some Alpinestars Andes pants to replace them. Great pants, just make sure you dont need them in warmer/wet climates. March 9, 2015
Need more adjustments to fine-tune the fit. The knees and lower part of the pants are really big. I didn't have confidence that the knee pad would actually stay in place should I find myself sliding across the asphalt. I wish the pants had some sort of adjustment system to make the fit more snug. After an 8 hour ride the buffeting and looseness caused chafing on my knees. Good air flow, nice style. The full length zips make putting them on and taking them off easy. I purchased the optional hip pads too. Overall, way better than a pair of jeans (obviously), but I would not buy them again because of the fit issue. December 15, 2014
great buy Bought a set of pants and jacket. I'm 6'3'' 183lbs and size LL fit was simply perfect #very accurate size chart!#. Pants let a lot of air in, very stylish and look awesome. Could provide hip protection for the same amount of money. Quite happy altogether... November 24, 2014
Great for variable weather After researching many mesh pants I went with the Rev'It Tornado pant. I used them on a 3 week cross country trip and had no issues with them. I wore them everyday on the trip and was very happy I had them. I rode in temps ranging from 32 deg - 93 deg and they performed great. The full length zippers make them a snap to take on and off and the liner installs easily. I'm 5-11 180lb and bought the 52 regular based on the sizing chart. The length was perfect however the waist fit a little large on me even with adjustments as small as they would go. They work well for over pants or with shorts. I gave them a little knock on features and style due to the front pockets not easily accessible while on the bike. I wouldn't consider that enough to discourage a purchase though. They are well built with nice overall style and comfort. November 17, 2014
Great pants I love these pants. Great ventilation and comfy. Knee protection is where it should be when riding, very little adjustment though. Great to throw over your casual clothes. The liner isn't needed until below 50 degrees. They fit okay. I am a between a size 36-38 depending on my weight. I got the size euro size 58. I am currently a size 38" and I have it adjusted the tightest. Will have to get the waist altered when I lose the marriage weight. If you have thicker legs you may have an issue. I went up a waist size due to it being to tight around my legs. When it doesn't have the liner it fits great and isn't restricting. When the liner is in, I can barely get my legs high enough to throw my legs over the seat. The liner makes tight spots. I will have to alter that. Other than that, these are great pants. October 6, 2014
Expensive, gets water-logged This seemed the ideal solution - combination of great airflow mash overpants when the lining is removed and convenient waterproof, warm protection with the lining in. Trouble with having the waterproof on the inside is that the outside material gets very waterlogged and heavy with a heavy rain. Still wet hours later. For light rain or as an overpant without the liner, it's great, but too pricey for that limited use. September 23, 2014
Excellent II would like to emphazise the client atention and monitoring of the purchase, really you have a great froup in the client department: CONGRATULATIONS! September 22, 2014
Style and quality, good price My husband and I both bought these pants. My rating is based on my husband's experience with these pants. My husband loves them. Unfortunately, Rev' It hasn't caught on to what a couple of other manufacturers have realized: most women are not a size 2. The women's version of this pant doesn't fit. I tried this mens version and it DEFINITELY does not fit (not unisex). Kudos to Rev'It for realizing that women do like colors other than pink! My husband loves the fit of these pants. He's 5"9" and 225 lbs with a stocky, muscular build and the size 58 worked fine. It would have been nice if they would have included CE hip protection with a pant of this price. Great product nonetheless. September 8, 2014

Lee C: ride to grand canyon in august: its going to be pretty darn hot Jul 5, 2014
Thomas S: I tried out another brand first (Tour Master) , they were tight in the waist and like bloomers every where else. I ordered these and the fit is much better, I even have to take up the side adjusters all the way. Jul 2, 2014
ANTON N: Summer protection - All gear, all the time! Jun 27, 2014

Willie V: To match my Revit Tornado jacket. Jun 15, 2014
Joseph P: Functionality as stand-alone or overpant (with removal of liner), waterproofing, color option (wanted white for warm weather riding with occasional stop/go traffic), CE pads, and compatibility with jacket (REV'IT Galactic) May 22, 2014
Gregory B: Wanted some good, versatile pair of pants to get me through spring through fall. These combine good with my Air jacket and my Spectrum jacket. For the dead of winter I have other pants. Also wanted something that could be used as over pants during warm weather commutes. So far these have been great for their intended purposes. Haven't had them out in rain yet, so can't comment on that aspect. Only do some light off-roading (gravel, dirt country roads and fire-trails). May 20, 2014
ray e: rain built in , May 5, 2014
Konstantin B: liked the design and functionality Apr 29, 2014
Matthew H: Breathabilty; Color (didn't want Black for a Summer pant); Liner; REV'IT general reputation and RevZilla reviews. Apr 9, 2014
Brian R: I needed a summer mesh armored riding pants. I was going to get the Rev'It air wave, but then saw a review that suggested to check out the tornado. As this makes it a 3 season pants with rain and thermal solution. Very happy I read the reviews and chose this option. Thank you RevZilla for doing what you do, and your honest reviews on gear!

James S: Needed a year round pant that wasn't too hot in the summer and kept me dry and warm in the winter. Feb 26, 2014
Jerry B: Wish I didn't. Not a good adventure pant. More for street touring only Jan 8, 2014
David R: true multiseason versatility in these pants Dec 16, 2013
james m: quality at fair price Oct 16, 2013
Wilson L: Liked the design, features, liner, and light color for warm weather and hi-viz. 54 Reg is good for my 38" true waist and 31-32" inseam. Good fit with liner in over pants, a bit loose without liner. Adj waist cinch straps full small to get a good fit at waist. No issue once on bike, but loose walking around. No belt loops (like on some Olympia pants) - that would be a nice feature. Adjustable knee armor position is well designed. The silver color does get dirty looking quickly on inside of legs. Sep 24, 2013
Merrill O: "quality and features I needed for summer riding" Sep 17, 2013
Christopher B: Reading customer reviews, watching the well-done video reviews, and having a rep answer my posted question, I am confident I made the right choice, both to match the Tornado jacket I currently wear, and for the 38-95° climate in Wisconsin riding season. I hope my measurement with a ribbon tape was accurate , as I ordered 56 short to wear as an overpant. I am 5'10", 230lbs, 40-41" waist, 38" hips (jean size), 28" inseam. Short, and, um,... stout. Looking forward to receiving them. Aug 30, 2013
A shopper asked: How big are the pant leg openings? Are they big enough to get moderately sized boots underneath??? Sep 26, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jacques L: I don't know the measurement, but they have been more than enough room for me. I usually wear Dianese Torque Pro boots and use the velcro adjusters on the pants to tighten the openings so they aren't loose in the wind (like jacket cuffs). Larger boots should fit as well.
If you are asking about the openings when unzipped, then I'll say I always put these on after my boots, so my boots fit easy through the leg openings when the leg zippers are unzipped.

Ric F: I have a pair of REV'it boots and they fit under very easily. The pant leg opening should accommodate just about any boot top, except maybe the off road type.
I'm happy with the pants, their quality, etc. The only issue i found was that I could not tighten the waist sufficiently to keep them up during normal walking. I have resorted to using suspenders - which work fine. I have a 35" waist.

Daniel R: Yes plenty of room in the pant legs for boots. I have had full size touring boots Oxtar Matrix, on under these pants no issues. Best thing about Revzilla is if you don't like the product for some reason exchanges are easy, hard to go wrong at Revzilla. Sep 26, 2013

Matthew B: I wear Sidi On Road boots, and there is plenty of room in the cuffs with or without the lining in place. (If your question is about putting the pants on without taking off your boots, I've never tried that an don't think it would work very easily.) Sep 26, 2013

George S: Mine measure 9-inches across the bottom (inside measurement), so double that for an 18-inch circumference. They also have a nice fold-over flap with velcro to take up any "flappage". Measure around your boots and you'll have the answer! Sep 26, 2013

Chris K: Yes, this pant can be worn as a standard pant by ordering your normal size, or it can be worn as an over-pant by ordering a size larger. The lining will give you waterproof protection and extra warmth, but can be removed on hotter days to ride with just the outer shell for best ventilation. Apr 25, 2011

IanM: Yes. I have been wearing these with the liner out as over-pants over jeans. All the armor sits where it should and the airflow is pretty good. They also fit right for me with shorts on underneath, although I feel a bit weird, since you can kinda see through the mesh. That said, whether the armor will sit right with shorts (or I suppose just underwear) underneath probably depends on the build of your legs and your riding posture. I think it's save to say that if you size them right, they should definitely work over jeans with the liners out. Overall I've been really happy with these (and the matching jacket.) May 2, 2011

Lukas V.: The air pants can be worn without the lining. In fact most people will find themselves wearing it that way to get the airflow. The lining however can not be worn on it's own, it must be worn with the Air pants themselves Nov 28, 2011

Matthew B: Probably the longest I've been in the rain with these pants is a half-hour at a time, but on one occasion it was a hard rain. There were no leaks or seepage. However, my one complaint about the liner is that it's insulated too. If it's warm AND rainy, it can get pretty toasty inside. I'd rather have just a waterproof layer and add my own insulating layer if needed. Aug 19, 2013
Reply to Matthew Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Lee M: Crazy thought - would the non-insulated liner from the Sand 2 pants fit the Tornado pants? I just got the Sand 2 pants, but I'm concerned about the limited venting they have when it warms up. If I could supplement them with a pair of the Tornado pants, but use the waterproof liner from the Sand 2 pants in the summer, I think these 2 pairs of pants would cover all my riding needs. Jun 3, 2014
Karl A: Bought these pants and went on a 9k mile ride last year. .The liner was out on the ride south and west. In Arizona with the liners out, after getting new tires on, was in an incredible wind/rain storm that soaked me which was nothing compared to the fear factor! Put liner in at 6k feet in northern California for the warmth and it served me well on the Beartooth highway in Montana at 10k feet, there was snow and hail but no rain and they kept me cozy.
These pants served me well, was cooler through the Mohave desert and warm in the cold states. Right now because it is in the 40s around here in the AM I put them on over my work jeans and the liner is in.
BTW, I'm 77 and "Oim not dead yet"!

Tom S: ive worn them over shorts and jeans..of course the bulkier the under clothes are the tighter the fit of the tornado pants. ive worn them with the liner and long johns and they were great. they would be fine overpant without the liner… at least that works for me. i wear a 50 in tornado pants, my normal size is a 34-36 waist with inseam of 31. …5'10" 210lbs. as long as i am in shape the 50 works great and as you can see 20 lbs less would work the best. but lately the gut has not been cooperating so they are a little to a lot tight. i bought them knowing that to keep me on the slimmer side… . with the liner in i use rain gear to cut the wind and i wear them all year round. i put suspenders on them (a good clip on type) to keep them from moving around and that works great. very happy with the pants… summer heat is no problem….

Patricia M: Hi there,

My husband and I both have the Tornado pants but don't use them as an over pant. We've just finished a 3 week tour of South Africa and earlier this year 6 weeks in South America and the pants have been great in any weather. Mind you the weather was relatively mild not much cold weather but plenty of days above 30 degrees Celsius.

In our opinion they do just fine as a straight motorcycling pant. Hope that helps.

Daniel R: Hi Lee,
I'm not sure tornado is what you want to wear jeans underneath. The whole purpose of these pants is to flow air on hot days. It has a waterproof liner that zips in, but I guess you could wear them as over pants to jeans. The cut is European, and if your always going to wear pants underneath get a size larger than you ordinarily would. The waist is adjustable, about 1" velcro on the sides. The best thing about Revzilla is you get free exchanges if it doesn't fit, so go for it.

Lee M: Thanks Daniel. I have the Airwave Jacket and was considering the Airwave pants, but it would be nice to have the optional liner for colder days..so I was considering the tornado. I would always have shorts or jeans under either one....as I won't go walking around somewhere with them on (commuting to work, for example). Dec 27, 2013
Reply to Lee Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Lee M: Thanks Tom. I have the same issue! I ordered them on my 'fat side' since I tend to be heavier in the winter and would use them with the liner then. They mainly will be used without the liner but over jeans or slacks for the commute during the summer. Thanks for the response! Dec 30, 2013

A shopper asked: hey i live in ireland and just wondering would these pants do a good job in heavy rain and lower temps thanks Aug 22, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lukas V.: In terms of rain. I would say they will keep you as dry as any other pant with an internal liner. Which is to say all my pants keep me fairly dry, but get wet around the crotch as everything drips off my jacket. So they will work well keeping you dry in the rain, but in a heavy downpour your best choices are to either get a rain suit, or to get off the road.

As for warmth. So far I've ridden them with the liner in down to the low to mid 40s. Once I was just wearing boxers, another time I had a simple long underwear base layer. In both situations at that temp I was just fine. Not sure how well they would be if you combine cold and wet, but overall I've been overly impressed with the warmth of the pants (given the air it lets through in the summer). I could see wearing these through the winter for commuting and riding around town.

llsetter13: I have had the pants for about three months now and while i've been riding mostly in hot weather in the states i would have to say that from the feel of the liner and the experience i've had with other rev'it products i would bet this could be a full year round pant. if you get one size bigger and wear it as an overpant especially it should be good. the liner is relatively thick and has some really good thermal properties (i wore them inside with the liner on and within about 15min i was sweating like crazy). i bought this pant to use year round and intend on doing just that.

travis s: I wore these in a 20 minute downpour doing 55. I had my doubts but they did well. Would they last in a rainstorm all day? Not sure I want to try it. The best thing I can say is they are not that bulky and if I wanted to, I could fit my dedicated rain pants over them for an extra layer of protection. As far as cold temps, I had basketball shorts underneath them for a 50 degree 200+ mile ride and they did well. It was my HANDS and chest that felt cold. May 31, 2012

ToneHz: These pants are great in pouring rain. Your boots need to be waterproof though. I had a little leakage through the zipper in my boots after 2-3 hours in the rain.

DarkMark: I live in Singapore and I haven't yet worn the liner in the rain.

A shopper asked: I am thinking of using these as overpants (with jeans) without the liner and standard riding pants (no jeans) with the liner. Does Rev'it have a point of view on this or does anyone have experience in this approach? I ask because it will help me determine the correct size. I am 6'-1", 200lbs, 34x34 jeans. Thanks in advance.

Joseph S: The pants are quite roomy without a liner, so you would not have a problem with jeans as far as I can tell. As far as a liner is concerned, I don't remember mine ever having a liner. If they did I imagine I tossed it when I got them. I bought the pants for hot, humid South Mississippi riding and a liner just would not have figured in my useage. I have a rain suit if I need it. The only thing I occasionally do, weather permitting, is wear a pair of Bohn Body Protection under the pants. Simple reason, the Tornado Pants are extremely loose and I know in the event of a crash the legs are going to be some where up around my thighs. The Bohn's are the only way I can get more protection with a minimum amount of increased heat. Hope this helps. Any more questions, please feel free to ask... Mar 28, 2014

A s: The pants are awesome yes you could wear them over your pants with out the liner. I used it both with and with out the liner in the summer I wear shorts with my Tornado pants with out the liner.

Brad W: These run a little tight for me when wearing jeans underneath. Not bad but not as comfortable as I like. I usually wear synthetic hiking style pants under my Tornados and it's perfect. With the liner in, forget about wearing pants at all. They are snug with the liner in. Great pants overall, been very happy with them after a season of riding. Mar 28, 2014

Willie V: I have these pant and wear them with underwear only. I think if you get them large enough to wear over jeans when you try to wear without then it will be too big...even with the liner in. Mar 28, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, I am 60 years old and have been riding for over 38 years. I ride a 2010 BMW R1200RT. I am 5' 9" tall, and weigh 160lbs. I have a 34" waist and 32/34" inseam. My regular jeans are Wrangler or Levi 34" waist by 34" inseam. I want a 3 season textile pant that I can wear just as a pant with no jeans beneath it or when it cools down, the liner beneath it. I would like to know if that would put me in the size 50 or size 48 category? I live in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada
Thank you for your help.

Alan G. P: For your height you have some interesting dimensions below the belt (no, not that one!). Since you are riding a R1200RT I believe it when you say you have a 32"-34" inseam or you would be challenged by the seat height. My own dimensions are larger in the waist and a shorter inseam but because of my hips and outseam I chose a size 56 instead of 54 and they were perfect for me. I think the sizing chart on the Revzilla site is quite accurate. In your case it would depend on YOUR hip and outseam measurements, not just the waist size. There is some waist adjustment in the pants so if you go with size 50 European you will still be able to cinch them in a bit. Just make sure you wear a tall boot as the legs will be a tad short for you - the pant legs can be worn over the boot as well. They are good, well-made pants for adventure riding. Mar 27, 2014

Jeffrey D. K: I would advise you NOT to go 48. I personally would go with the 50 or even up another size. I own the 50 and wear 34" jeans. They fit perfectly like jeans or normal pants and it works If not using them as overpants, ever. They are a bit tight over jeans especially if you have a belt on as well. I generally don't wear the liner. The liner would make them a tad tight but not uncomfortable if not wearing pants underneath.

If I was buying today, I would likely go up to a 52 which would be big in the waste but when seated would be a bit more comfortable and leave room to go over pants, shorts, or without... These pants are fairly well fitted and in line with normal pant sizing (don't run big) in my opinion. Hope that helps. You'd be fine with a 50 as you describe but may want to up size to 52....

DARREN R: These pants fit tight on leg with the liner in. If you ride in warm or hot weather, these are pants for you. I live in the southern US that is where it's very hot and humid. Go big if you like loose fitting pants. Mar 29, 2014

Val T asked: Guys,

can someone comment if these paints would do OK in hot South Florida (Miami) street riding (no track, no commute, just weekend riding). I plan on using them with Alpinestars Bionic Freeride Shorts and Dainese Knee V Guards for added protection.

Can these be worn as the only paints (with nothing underneath, well, except the underwear, protective shorts and knee-shin guards)? Would they provide adequate abrasion protection?

Or, maybe I should go with REV'IT! Sand 2? Any other recommendations?

George S: The short answer: yes, I think so.
I rode in a dry heat - 2 days of mostly over 100 degrees - with underwear and cotton shorts or cotton jeans underneath (with liners removed). Also, all summer in mid-humidity and higher 90's temps.
As opposed to riding in plain jeans, I really liked the feeling of protection they provided. Some would say that there are more protective pants out there... true, but most of life is a compromise, including clothing worn while riding. I am very happy to wear these again, and feel that they offer good protection.
I am not familiar with Sand 2's to comment.
Hope this helps.

Joseph S: I live in South Mississippi, these pants are about as cool as i've found, but you will need extra protection due to the fact the legs are loose and will no doubt pull up past the knees in the event of a crash. I use a pair of Bohn Body Protection underneath, if it's not too hot. Feb 11, 2014

Jonathan S: If you are really worried about air flow, I would go with the Rev'it Airwave pants. The Tornado pants provide thermal insulation and waterproofing, adding to the cost of the pants. The Airwave pants will just flow air without the extra liners. Either option will have similar abrasion resistance (mesh and textile combination).

The Rev'it Sand 2 pants are designed to be versatile in different conditions (rain, cold, heat). They do not have large mesh panels and will not flow as much air as the Tornado or Airwave options. But, the Sand 2 pants will be much easier to stretch into cooler temperatures.

Val T asked: Could these pants zip to a Dainese Laguna Evo perforated leather jacket? Feb 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alan G. P: I don't own a Dainese Laguna Evo perforated leather jacket so I haven't tried to marry them to my pants. However, I see no reason why they should not zip together since the zipper tab is pretty much a standard feature and has a standard placement in this product market.

I would be very surprised if they didn't couple together. Remember, the zipper on the jacket (inside) has a certain amount of tab material that would allow for some movement of the jacket up and down (1 inch or so) after attachment to the pants.

If it helps you to decide, I have successfully zippered some of my different styles and brands of jackets and pants. Should be no problem for you.

Karl A: Can't say they will do that because I wear them with other make jackets and have not tried to zip them into those jackets either.
I can say, unlined in the heat of the Mojave desert, they were as cool as I would have expected and with the lining in at almost 12k feet on the Bear Tooth Highway with hail falling and snow around the sides of the road (it was July) I was plenty warm. The color I chose were the light style because I'm an old Swede and don't like heat, but they were a bit darker after 28 days and 9k miles around the USA.
I do recomend them!

A shopper asked: I have the jacket and would like to buy the pants but good hip armor is important to me. Does the stock hip armor offer anything more than minimal protection? Can it be upgraded? Thanks Apr 8, 2013

RevZilla: The stock hip pads in the REV'IT! Tornado Pants offer minimal protection at best. The pads can be replaced with upgraded armor like the Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor. The best protection would come from wearing armored shorts underneath like the Klim Tactical Shorts. Apr 15, 2013

A shopper asked: What are the cleaning instructions for the jacket, pants, and liners? Jan 14, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
travis s: Since the liner is the part that contains the water resistant portion, I would say washing by hand or in a front loading washer set to "delicates" with a low amount of detergent and then air dry. There was no tag on how to care for this garment but found a pretty nice post on this on http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=425821

Q: How do I wash / clean my REV'IT! Textile Gear?
A: The most simple and effective approach is gentle hand-washing in warm water if a damp cloth wipe-down first, wont do the trick. We don't recommend it, but some folks also have used simple green natural cleaner or a front loading washer on gentle / warm cycle for care. We find hand-washing is always best. NEVER use a top loading washer as the center agitator can severely damage the jacket, seams and stitching. Over time the DWR (Direct Water Repellancy) coating on the outer shell can wear off with use. We recommend Nikwax for replenishing the moisture beading properties to the outer shell of REV'IT! garments.

llsetter13: sure will, but don't really need to. the ignition jacket has two zips in the back and the smaller one will connect with the tornado pant. i run the same combo (silver tornado pant with black ignition jacket) and haven't bothered to zip them together cause you really don't need to. the high back on the tornado pant comes up enough that the jacket covers them easily, unless for some reason you're trying to hang the tornado pants off your hips at which point they are useless anyway.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  REV'IT! sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
