REV'IT! Women's Tornado Pants
These pants are perfect for year round riding in Southern California
These are really 2 pants in one since you can remove the quilted liner. I like the fact that you can adjust the knee pads and also that the zippers are full length on the inside of the pants. Easy to get on and off with shoes on. Good pockets and adjustable waist.

Great pair of pants!
I've been shopping for a pair of pants for awhile now. Probably bought 5 pairs or so and finally settled on this pair. I'm 5' 3'' and 120 pounds; my measurements are 27.5 waist, 37.5 hip, and 29 inseam. I ended up getting size 36 and I'm really happy with them. I also tried 38 which also worked but was slightly too baggy for me.
They are very well ventilated and I like how the liner is removable. The position of the knee pad is adjustable which was really something I needed because of my height and short legs. Some of the other pants I tried would've worked had the knee pads been adjustable. The pant leg does not drag because I have moto boots that give me an extra inch. The back does come up high but that's common for most moto pants.
Overall I'm happy I FINALLY found a pair of pants that work. Thanks to Revzilla I was able to keep exchanging until something worked for me.

Really like the fit on the Rev It pants and jacket.
Excellent quality. Not heavy feeling like lots of the gear for women.

great fitting with good protection
I bought these pants prior to a trip and wore them for 3 days of riding. Very comfortable and I felt protected. The airflow was very good with the liner out. I Love the pants, they fit well and look great. I'm 5'4", 125 lbs and got a size 36. Lisa

Versatile and Comfortable
I ordered these pants to wear over work-pants as well as for going on longer trips on weekends. I like that they had a removable liner that would allow me to wear them in colder weather but still have the breathable mesh for summer riding. I recommend watching the video for the men's version of the pants. It is spot on, they are basically the same spec-wise but with a more feminine cut.
The size chart said I should be a 36 but since I wanted them as over-pants I ordered a 38 and they fit great over work-pants and jeans with the liner in or out. With the size adjustments at the hips, I can make them a little tighter for when the liner is out and wearing shorts. Length rides up on the bike with knees bent but still long enough to cover the tops of my ankle-length boots. Adjusted the knee-pads so they line up nice with my knees while riding. I'm used to riding in jeans so changing to more baggy pants felt weird at first but I love them now they're so comfortable.
Only complaint is they swish like snow-pants when I walk. Also, as another reviewer noted, given the price it would be nice to have the hip protection included.

Awesome pants. Wish the hip pads were in stock
These are fantastic and they fit really well. I'm 5'5", 115 and the 36 fits perfectly. They're a little big if I'm just wearing leggings but i can also throw them over jeans, which is what I was going for. Definitely recommend for any time of ride - commuting or longer distance.

Worthwhile purchase - beware they're on the short side
I specifically bought these pants to pair with my Tornado jacket on a longer tour through Bryce, Zion, the Grand Canyon, and some other places in the southwest. I wanted pants that would serve as protective over-pants and rain pants as necessary.
I'm 5' 9" and 155lbs and ordered sizes 42 and 44 to try on. I have the Xena leather pants for the track and canyons in 42 and they're on the tight side. If I was only going to wear the Tornados as stand-alone pants, I would have gone with the 42, but the 44 provides me the versatility to pull them on over casual shorts to ride my motorcycle to my destination in sunny Southern California with my legs protected.
If I had to do it all over again, I would have tried to get them in 44 long. #Why don't you carry them in long Revzilla?!# When I am standing there is enough length to have a break at my boot, but when I'm sitting on the bike there is some exposed ankle that concerns me from a safety perspective as well as minimizes their utility in the rain if they're just going to shed water into my boots.

Just what I was looking for!
I spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect pants. I don't have a lot of money so when I invest in quality gear I want it to be as close to perfect as possible. I was looking for something that I could wear over my work clothes in the summer and winter in Seattle, where I commute on my bike everyday rain or shine. I have every confidence that these pants will keep me warm on moderate length (maybe longer rides!) rides in the winter and won't be too warm in the summer as there is obviously tons of ventilation.
They work great as overpants even with the rain/thermal liner in. I'm able to get my boots through both layers with little problem. If I was going to complain the only thing I'd say is I feel a little silly pulling at the zippers on my inner thigh as opposed to the outside. But I like the safety aspect of where they're placed. Getting the liner in and out is really easy and takes less time than getting the liners in and out of my jacket, I expected it to be more of a hassle.
I added the optional hip protectors. They were a pain to get in but once they are there they fit fine and don't seem to change the fit of the pant too much, although, I'll say the front pockets are mostly useless once the hip protection is in.
In regards to sizing my waist measurement was right on the line between a 40 and 42 (30.5"). I opted for the the size down and I've had no issue with getting them on over other clothes. I'm 5'10" and about 145lbs and they fit pretty well maybe slightly tight in the waist (that's probably good, right?) when I have jeans and a belt on under them.
I try not to worry too much about looking cool in my gear, as keeping my body intact is my first concern but I will say that these look less bulky than I thought they would so that's a plus!
