REV'IT! Women's Tornado Pants
Nice pants, size is larger for overpant use
I am very pleased with the Tornado pants. I live in the south and have to have two full sets of gear, summer and winter. I was looking for protective mesh pants that I could wear as pants, over just LD Comfort shorts or tights, not overpants. The sizing on the Tornadoes is generous, so I ended up getting the smaller size. I am 5' 7" and weigh 168 and bought a size 42. Very nice fit and finish on the pants, and I wasn't sure about the zipper on the inside of the leg, but I really like it. It is unobtrusive, and works extremely well. I haven't ridden in the pants yet, but a winter walk down to the bike garage generated a really good air flow with the liner out.:-) I would actually recommend that RevIT eliminate the liner and reduce the price. I would never use an inner liner when it is so much easier to just put on rain pants over the pants. Just my opinion...

I agonized over these pants. I wanted overpants with lots of mesh and waterproofing. These were the closest I could find and they've worked out great. I wear them over shorts in the heat and jeans in the cooler weather and they fit well both ways. The full-length zipper is fantastic. My only improvement would be to separate out the thermal insulation from the waterproofing (like the Ignition 2 jacket does).
Also, they look good. No snow-pants.

Love these pants
I purchased the Tornado jacket and wanted the matching pants so I purchased the Tornado pants.
In taking my measurements I was between two sizes. I chose the larger size to be safe. When the pants arrived and I pulled them out of the box I knew they were going to be to big even with the side adjusters and I was right. So I returned the pants and replaced with the smaller size. These fit a lot better. My suggestion is that if are between sizes go with the smaller size. Also you can adjust the knee pads. If you want hip protectors that will have to be purchased separately.
The pants look great on. I wore the pants on a recent ride with the liner in. When the day became warmer took the liner out. The zipper comes up really high on both the liner and pants makes removal easy and putting back on the pants. No shoe removal necessary.
I'm very happy with the pants. Pricey but worth it.

Pants great for iTM tour through Pyrenees and Provence
Great women's pants. Fit much better, not too roomy. Rode through the Pyrenees and Provence without a hitch! Stayed cool in very warm temps and comfortable at higher altitudes.
Love my new pants.

Great combo of fit, style and price
With the water/windproof removable layer, these pants provide the much-needed airflow for hot summers and warmth for chilly weather. I have yet to be caught in a huge downpour with these pants, but so far so good on the waterproofing on normal rainy days.
Unlike other pants in this price range, they don't have the horrible unflattering snow pants effect, and still provide good protection. The extra length of leg zippers make them very easy to put on, and also the extra venting when pulling over.
I highly recommend these, and wish I had bought them first instead of wasting $200 on another pant that I was embarrassed to wear for two years. No need to sacrifice protection or style.

The size chart indicated that I would be a 38, but even though the hips and length were perfect, I could not close the zipper. So, I returned the product and got the 40 [which was exceedingly easy with Revzillla!]. The 40 fits okay, but is a little bit loose in the waist even though I have it cinched as tight as it will go. That is okay, since it means I can wear pants underneath them. The garment is extremely well made. The liner zips in and out very quickly and easily. Like the jacket, the skin allows cool air in, but keeps it out when it is colder. The armor is subtle; I don't even know it is there. I forget I have these pants on while I am riding. When I have the entire suit on, I am comfy and cosy no matter what the weather is. What a terrific motorcycle suit! I highly recommend the Rev'It Tornado Jacket and Pants together!

Slimming without binding. Mesh great in hottest weather. Recommend yoga pants or shorts underneath as mesh a little bothersome after hours of riding.
Love these pants! Get compliments every time I wear them. Wore them every day on a three week trip in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota during July. Very comfortable. During the coldest day in the Rocky Mtns (Beartooth Pass, elev. 10,000 feet, in the sixties) wore pants with liner and my rainsuit over. Was warm and comfortable.

Great Pant - Wish they had it in stock in my correct size!
I ordered the REV'IT! Women's Tornado Pants a size larger than I thought I needed because my actual size was out of stock and I figured I would be able to return these pants when MY size came back in stock (one more week!).
I rode in them very briefly and I am very happy with the airflow they provide. Wearing them over my jeans on a nice 70 degree morning (without the liner) was very comfortable.
When I stand up in these pants I have a lot of room to spare around my stomach but when I sit they pull snug (no stretch - duh).
Even though I don't like the way they fit my waist when I am standing they really just need to fit when it counts (on the bike) so I don't think I will be trading them in after all.
Like all women I wish the gear was a little more form fitting but motorcycle gear should not fit the way your skinny jeans do - if it did you wouldn't be able to wear it for very long.
Overall I am really pleased with these pants.
I am 5'10'' and 175.
