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)

    • lining: 100% polyester
    • membrane: 100% polyamide (100% polyurethane coating, insulation 100% polyester)
  • Protection: Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees

REV'IT! Tornado Pants 4.6 5 105 105
Great Multi-Season Textile Pants I was one of those guys riding around town with a pair of jeans on for a long while. Then I had a friend who also wore jeans tell me about how he had recently gone down at ~45mph. Tore his jeans to shreds, cuts & bruises, etc. He was in a good deal of pain, but the worst part was how the doctors spent hours just removing all the gravel from his legs and how he had to clean them regularly to fight off any infection. That got me on this site pretty quick. I went with these pants because of the video breakdown and the other reviews. I've ridden over 300mi with them on, and wore them in various weather conditions. I'm 6'2", 185lbs, 32x34 pant size and I ordered a size 48. If it's under 60 degrees, I use the liner. If it's warmer than that, I remove the liner and use the shell of these pants with the Troy Lee hot weather armored under pants, which also has some light padding. That combination is pretty awesome even in 80+ degree weather (which we've already had in the DC area). The front of these pants is pretty much all mesh, which to quote Anthony, flows a ton of air. In colder weather (I rode this morning and it was 39 degrees), I swap the Troy Lee pants for the liner and it works perfectly at blocking the wind. The textile combined with the knee protection is adequate for my type of riding - 80% commuting / 20% weekend cruising. No pant with knee armor is going to be a perfect fit for everyone, but the adjustments you can make with the Tornado pants are working for me. Having the velcro cinches at the hips and ankles also helps. My only complaint? My wife calls them my "swishy pants." They make a swishing noise because the material rubs together while you walk. April 18, 2014
Protection leaves a lot to be desired I ordered these pants in combination with a Tornado jacket. Unfortunately I am returning them both. While the armor in the jacket seems more than adequate and it's placed well, in the pants the knee pads (which are not that big) can float around too much. There is an excess of room for your legs in the knee area. If only there was some means to cinch down the pants or something. Also, the hip armor is pretty flimsy, sure it can be upgraded, but I don't see why I should have to pay anything additional. Besides all that, I've never had gear with inserts for waterproofing before. After looking at this system, I don't see how that is practical when you're out on the road. What are you going to do when it starts raining, pull over and strip your gear off to put in the inserts? I think I would rather pull on a rain suit. April 15, 2014
Should have bought sooner! I almost bought the Revit air-wave pants, as I wanted to wear shorts and remain cool in the hot summer weather. But a reviewer on the air-wave mentioned these Tornado pants. For a little bit more money I could get a 3 season pant and extend my riding season and comfort. I am so glad I followed his advice. These pants are super warm and block wind like no other with the thermal liner is installed. They do make the pant leg and seat area just a bit smaller, so be aware of this when ordering. I wear a size 33 waist 30 inseam. The short 50 is almost a perfect fit. Just a hair too long for my short stature, but with my riding boots a perfect fit. I have not had the opportunity to ride with the thermal layer out yet. But just walking around with the thermal out, the pants flow air very nicely. Summer riding never looked cooler! Zipping in and out of pants is super easy without the liner, I can keep my shoes/boots on. But with the thermal waterproof liner installed I have to take my shoes/boots off. Even with all the zippers. maybe if the zippers where on the outside of the legs it would allow more of an opening. But the zippers on the inside offer more safety. Armored and adjustable knee pads are amazing. Very happy with these and very comfortable. The jacket to pant zipper works with my different brand jacket... it appears this is a universal sized zipper and I am happy it is this way. Quality: pants are very good build, stitching is strong, fabric feels strong and slippery (what you want in an off). Mesh is larger opening than Revit air-wave, but less mesh on the front side of the pants, covering more of the ankle and knee area. Zippers are strong and work great. Not sure if YKK but they are high quality. Ventilation: Have not ridden in warm temperatures yet. But just walking around pants flow a very large amount of air. Thermal layer: They say it breaths, I don't think so, maybe I make more heat and humidity than normal people. Riding in 60F weather at 45mph The pants are very warm. Any warmer air temp and I'd unzip the thermal layer out. *I ride with jeans on. It is waterproof, and windproof, as tested in a rain shower, in the cold. Zipper didn't leak any water at all! Armor: Knee armor is comfortable and quality flexible to an extent. Other things of Note: 1. Zipping into the thermal layer take note of smaller leg room, form fitting pants would be ideal, but my jeans are comfortable enough for the short ride to work (20 minutes) 2. White is great for reflecting heat, but it gets dirty quickly, oh well easily washable if I choose. 3. does go high on the waist. it goes just below my belly button. If you have a gut, measure up! and check the chart. 4. This price point should have hip armor included. 5. As mentioned by others, front pockets are near useless, I wish they didn't have them, would have made for an even more comfortable fit and more airflow. I guess I can slide my 4x6 inch note card for directions in their, but anything else, nope. April 9, 2014
Flexible These seem great for the money. I bought them to mainly use as overpants, or with the liner and this works well. I bought about a half size under what I normally wear and they're a little tight with the liner and another pair of pants, or spot on with just the liner or jeans underneath. Airflow seems excellent and I haven't tested the waterproof liner yet, but I expect it to be flawless like my Levante jacket I bought last season. Zips to that jacket and matches appearance wise as well (white/white). March 26, 2014
Great Fit and Great Design! I've been looking for a pair a nice riding pants that would keep me protected and cool. I hate riding with shorts on in the summer and I have a Rev'it jacket that breathes great so I decided to try these pants. I'll update the airflow once it gets warm enough in NYC to ride without freezing. Something I wasn't expecting was that with a pair of jeans on under the pants (with the liner in) these are awesome for the cold weather we have been having here. The fit is exactly as Revzilla describes after following the measurement instructions. They are a little snug with jeans on and the liner in but I ordered my size not a size up. Also I'm short and these are the perfect length...which is usually an issue for me. Price wise you get what you pay for. I have all Rev'it gear now and its no comparison to the inexpensive stuff. I've fortunately never laid down a bike (knock on wood) but all the armor is in the correct place and doesn't move so if I do I'm confident I should come up ok. March 18, 2014
Great pants! Very well made. I wish they ran a bit slimmer in the waist. Very well made and work great in the rain or heat. I am 6'1" with a 34 inch waist and the longs are just a tad short and a tad to big in the waist (with the adjustment tabs cinched down all the way) but not too bad. I am very impressed by the construction and design. Rev It knows what they are doing. February 25, 2014
Great protective pants The Tornado pants are sweet. They have plenty of ventilation for the warm months, and the thermal liner is warm for cold months. I haven't used them without the liner yet, so the air flow verdict is still out, but they appear to have plenty of ventilation. I also love the inner leg zipper that reaches to the crotch. This makes removing them easy. I use these as pants, as well as over-pants, and this feature really helps. The liner also has a leg zipper. The only thing I wish they had was belt loops. I am really skinny, and the cinch straps are maxed out on me. I wouldn't base your sizing on my experience though, most things are a little big for me. February 24, 2014
Awesome dual use pants. Being new to riding I am realizing how expensive this sport is in order to equip yourself properly. I have spent 6 months riding with gear I have more or less grabbed from anyone / everywhere I could. Once I visited the revzilla store and was shown these I fell in love. Not only do the fit great, but they are snug in all the right places to be comfortable on a bike. All the issues I had with regular jeans / riding jacket went away with these pants. On top of that in the heat of the summer you can remove the inner lining in order to get maximum air flow w/o sacrificing safety. Then in the winter or bad weather add the inner lining and your good to go. Highly recommend this product... February 17, 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!

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.

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

Jacques C 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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. The pants are good down to about 40 degrees. At 34 degrees and 65 mph I needed lightweight synthetic long underwear under the pants. Apr 21, 2012

DarkMark: I live in Singapore and I haven't yet worn the liner in the rain. It has too much thermal insulation for the tropics but I came here from Seattle which seems to be similar to Ireland and I believe these would work very well in the cold and wet. Not sure what you would do for a jacket though. Dec 24, 2012

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. When I look at these pants I went to the store to try them on it will help you out a lot. I am 5?7 210 lbs 38x30 I just check out the pants and the size is 54 short I hope this helps you out

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
