REV'IT! Women's Airwave Pants

The perfect match for the Airwave ladies' jacket, these trousers are also great summer over-pants to wear on top of your jeans when commuting. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all: they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times, and the fit is designed specifically for a woman's body. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or daring off white.

Good quality mesh pants, My girlfriend needed a good pair of summer riding pants so I went with these based on other recommendations. Having seen these in action for about a week, I can tell you that they look solid, the mesh is a fairly tight weave, but still lets air through, and seem like a great all around choice for summer riding protection. They come off and go on easily over a pair of boots making walking around off the bike easy. They seem a bit baggy, but I think I got a size too large so take that with a grain of salt. Even being too large, they cinched up for a secure fit around the waist. March 17, 2014
Versatile and very high quality These are the most versatile riding pants on the market. They're mesh pants that are airy enough to go over jeans, but fully lined and opaque so you can have nothing else on underneath. They're light and provide great airflow, but have full knee armor and hip padding built in. The zippers go all the way up the inseams, so it's easy to put on and take off these pants while wearing boots. The fit is not overly baggy, but they are roomy enough to not pinch or bind up in riding position. The quality and attention to detail is great, and I'm thankful for a gear manufacturer that doesn't insist on vomiting pink and floral designs all over their women's gear. The only signs that these are women-specific pants are the fit and the tiny finish details in light blue (teensy bit of light blue stitching and light blue grommets on the zipper pulls). I'm 5'3" and have a 25 inch waist, and bought size 34. The pants are a smidge big on me, but overall a pretty good fit. I think some stretch panels could have improved the fit a little, and there is a bit too much material in the crotch when standing or sitting. In addition, I find the waist height a little uncomfortable, but I'm pretty short so it's probably the right fit for someone who is average height. They are also a little bit long on me, but I'd rather have them too long than too short. These are just very minor gripes... overall I'm very happy with these pants and have recommended them to others. January 26, 2014
lots of protection Didn't get too much time to ride with these but there is lots of protection to these and takes away the sauna suit of the pants that don't allow airflow. November 11, 2013
Great pants! I just bought these and rode for about 50 miles in them yesterday. I ordered true to size, and I think overall they fit fine with just a little extra room in the seat when I'm walking around. Seated they feel fine, not too tight or loose. I wore leggings underneath too. They zipped comfortably over the top of knee-high boots. The knee armor stayed in the right places without additional adjustment and I didn't feel overheated (it was around 74 degrees and sunny). The hip padding adds some bulk but it's an okay trade-off for the protection. September 30, 2013
Great Los great on my wife, although shoe room the hip protectora of, for better styling. August 19, 2013
You've got to get these to match the Air Wave Jacket! The fit and finish is super and the pants really flow air. If you invest in the jacket you must get these pants. Great bang for the buck and the styling is super. August 6, 2013
Great Hot Weather Pants These fit great, feminine and TALL. Finally a good fit and with the Airwave jacket we are very comfortable above 80 degrees and good down to about 70 degrees. Lower than that we need something underneath. June 10, 2013
nice good fit... a bit tight but thats what i wanted.... May 13, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Theresa C: I'm an ATG, ATT kind of rider, and with my long commute, it's wise to keep my knee caps protected. Also since it is mesh, perfect for the Florida weather. Sep 12, 2013
A shopper asked: Can these be worn without wearing a layer (jeans, shorts, etc) underneath? Aug 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Theresa C: It depends on your sizing. There are two adjustment straps around the waist which allows you to cinch the pants a bit tighter depending on the fabric of your pants (I switch between cargo and jeans depending on my work day).

With regards to the waist, though I've never just wore the pants by themselves, I surmise that if you are at the tightest adjustment while wearing a layer underneath, it'll be too loose when you don't wear a layer. On the other hand, if your adjustment is just at the midpoint or maybe on the wider side when you've got a layer, you should be able to wear the pants without layers by cinching the adjustments tighter.

With regards to the legs, these pants are quite loose around the legs for me. They're not tapered like some of the more racing oriented gear, so if you're not wearing any layer, you're going to feel a little weird with all that extra space/air in your legging.

Judith S: Hi - yes you can wear them without a layer. I bought a size 38 (I am 5' 5" - 140lbs) and wear jeans/thick long underwear underneath for cold weather.

I also bought a size 36 so that I can wear them without an inner layer. There is a very thin black lining which prevents your skin from showing through the meshed areas. They are really comfortable and very flattering.

The zipper is on the inside of the pant which is good and bad. Good in that if you fall off the bike, you won't experience road rash from the zip gouging your skin. Bad in that the zips tends to swish when you walk - an annoyance at times but not purchase prohibitive.

Andrew E: (I am writing this through my husband's account.)

YES - these CAN be worn without a layer underneath. They are the most comfortable and breathe the best WITHOUT a layer underneath. They are NOT see-through.

That being said, I use these as over pants because I commute to work on my bike, and can't be bothered to change in and out of them. I find that even with wearing a layer underneath, they are still relatively comfortable and still breathe pretty well. If I were going out for a longer ride and not commuting to work, I would wear these without a layer underneath for increased comfort and airflow.

Anthony C: While these "could be" worn without any layer underneath, they are see through. Granite the see through mesh is mostly in the legs, but I still think it would be a bit strange to only wear these with underwear. I guess that would be personal preference though....I would say these would be good with a pair of armored shorts, but really the armored shorts are shorts. FYI - I use these over pants or shorts and I always take them off when I reach my destination. They are really that easy to unzip and take off, assuming you take off your shoes or boots. If you only wear shoes, you can slide shoes through. Aug 13, 2013

A s: Hi! Yes, they can be worn without a layer underneath, with an undergarment being the one exception. If that were the one garment worn, I'd recommend a dark color. I've worn these with either shorts, light leggings, jeans, or heated pants underneath, and of course always with mid-calf riding boots. The materials are not scratchy, which is great. The mesh is really good, even though its fairly dense. They're also easy/quick to get on and off.
I love these pants, and wear them on nearly all rides.
Hope this helps!!

Kris O: Yes, they are very comfortable without pants underneath because of the softer material lining the inside. I usually wear thin shorts because they don't have much room, at least in my case, for additional layers. They need to be hand-washed, so by wearing a layer I don't have to wash them each time, since they are a bit bulky. (Must remember to remove protection/armor to wash, btw.)
I am 5'8" and weigh about 124 lbs and the 36's fit very well.

Colleen M: Yes, they absolutely can be worn without wearing a layer. In fact that is how I ride in them. I live in Phoenix, AZ and purchased the white version for summer riding. They have worked exceptionally well and I receive compliments on how well they look on me. I am 5'7", 170# and wear the size 42. I highly recommend these pants Aug 26, 2013

Tom D: Hi, I purchased the revit womens airwave pants for a motorbike tour we did in Thailand, I didn't wear any pants underneath and they were perfect, breeze could still get through and they were really comfortable, if you really wanted to wear something underneath I would suggest leggings. Extremely happy with them!! Aug 18, 2013

Roland D: Bought these for my girl friend for whom they did not fit but fit me perfectly. These are my daily commute wear with just my underwear. Starts getting a little to cool to wear these with temps less than 65 deg on a non faired bike at highway speeds. Skin cannot be seen through the robust but airish weave. Aug 13, 2013

David G: I bought these for my wife in black. She is confident that they are not see through. The material is comfortable enough to be next to the skin without abrasion or chafing. So, yes they can be worn without layering. She did say she wasn't sure if they were white in color. Hope this helps. Aug 14, 2013

cheryl c: i have always just worn underwear or cycling shorts under these. it is very hot where i live and it seems to defeat the purpose of being cool if you layer under them. they have a smooth liner in them that makes them comfortable against your skin. Aug 14, 2013
Reply to cheryl Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael C: Sure the liner is soft enough. I wear them to work over my Dockers, and on weekends over shorts, so I made sure they were big enough for that. Keep that in mind if you think you will be using them as over pants also. Aug 13, 2013

DAVID N: Yes you can. Barb wears them like jeans. Summers are just too hot here in North Carolina to wear an additional layer under the Rev'Its. Hope this helps you make a decision. Barb really likes the fit and style. Aug 13, 2013

A shopper asked: Which hip pads fits in these pants? Which hip pads provide the most protection? I just received these pants in the mail and would like to get some hip protection ASAP. I haven't had any luck finding the answers to these two questions so if you can also share a source for this information that would be greatly appreciated too. Thank you in advance. Mar 20, 2014

A s: Hi! These pants came with soft hip pads and I've just been using those. I realize they wouldn't offer any real protection, but did not explore finding a different pad. Let me say that I love these pants, though. I've managed to fit heated pants inside and greatly extended my riding year. These are very quick and easy to get on and off---a real plus. The mesh is quite breathable, but it's also quite warm with another layer underneath--from jeans to heated pants w/cotton tights. I he you enjoy them, and good luck finding a better pad!!!!!

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
