Cluncky, heavy, good looking, warm on cold days (just finished a 200-mile day trip--was 32 degrees at the start.) Good for long rides. Would not be a good shoe for short rides--with the laces and the turnbuckle, it takes a while to get them on and off. Not a great shoe for extended walking (a couple miles), but fine for a few blocks to get where you're going. Would not be my choice on a hot summer day--heavy, thick, do not breathe. But they are terrific in cold or moderate weather. I've had this pair for about 5 yrs.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought the Tornado pants first, then the jacket. I wore both on a week-long trip where I covered 2500 miles in 6 days. I was in pouring rain and fog on two days (Oregon and Washington) with snow on the ground on the 4th of July at 5700' in the Northern Cascades. Then my last day I covered 450 miles in 99 degrees coming back home to Central California. I won't say I was really comfortable #it was HOT#, but the jacket and pants did breathe adequately, and the protection is terrific. I am warm enough in these pants and jacket at 50 degrees in the rain, but down at 40 degrees F or below, I need thermal long underwear. The liner jacket is wearable by itself, which is really great for packing less when on a road trip.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 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 ) Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT!

I received these pants two days before leaving on a 1250 mile road trip over four days with a group. There was pouring rain from Bakersfield to Tehachapi, and snow on the ground in the mountain pass. I was warm enough, adding light weight thermal long johns under the pants, although one guy's bike read 22 degrees with wind chill. Perfectly dry and comfortable. The official temp. was 34 degrees at the time. Then we had cross winds of up to 55 mph, heading south to Laughlin. Three days later we rode back through the Mojave Desert in 75 degrees, and I removed the waterproof thermal liner. Very comfortable! And great protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
