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, perforated EVA foam at hips 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! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

Unless you watch the video (which you should because they provide awesome details the specifications don't) you wouldn't know that this particular pant runs bigger than normal rev'it apparel.
I was looking for a 3 season riding pant that had good airflow for summer riding, liner I could install for cooler mornings, adjustable armor, and a back zip to hook to other jackets down the road (I have a mesh jacket that I tried and it zipped in perfectly!). It had to be water resistant/proof to some degree, and be a lighter color to keep the heat out - for under $300. Why $300? Because my wife said so.
I was also hoping for at least a double snap waist connection (hook plus snap was first choice) but the dual spring snaps on this works well.
I'm 6', 220, and wear a size 36 jean with 32 inseam. I was contemplating a size 56 per the "normal" revit size chart but took the word of revzilla that they run a bit larger. I'm glad I listened and ordered a 54. Waist is perfect with thin cargo / basketball shorts underneath and for cooler weather riding I'm wearing quick wicking thermal shorts/liners anyways. I'm a bit surprised that the waist adjustment isn't a bit more, they sometimes like to slide down when walking out to the bike. Maybe I'm losing weight...ha right, the side adjustment could be a bit more.
* i wish the bottom cuff had a flap with a snap - it's let go on me twice on a big cross wind but that could be my fault not making sure it's secure as best as it could.
* the front pockets are a joke, but I could see its functionality for someones phone number you picked up since you look pretty good in your new gear.
* someone mentioned the thighs are a bit tight - and i agree, but I didn't want snowpants so I don't mind.
For the price, I'd have to say it's a great investment. I have the silver model (they say white, it's a grey/silver actually) I wore them in 50 degree weather last weekend and they were awesome. I took them out yesterday in 80 degree weather without the liners and they did awesome (just shorts underneath).
I rode in a pretty substantial rainstorm this week as well and they held up great, dried quicly, and the only issue I had was with the left leg cuff coming undone as mentioned earlier.
Now i see a need for a new jacket to compliment the pants - the leathers get too heavy in the rain I found out first hand and not versatile enough! Looking at the Tornado Jacket for next year as I'm truly impressed with the Tornado pants I have now.
