The trick with the Tornado is that it's so versatile-from hothothot weather with the liners out over a t-shirt to liners-in colder weather. It was a little hard for me to choose between a 48 or 50 (I tried them both at a local store before buying), the 48 was the better size for hot weather riding, but wanting to stretch the jacket into the better part of 3 seasons, I wanted to make sure I had room for some base/mid layering and went with the 50.
The only issue I have with going towards the bigger size is that the upper arm adjustment straps don't really adjust enough the way they were designed-they seem to be able to loosen more than you would ever need, but don't really tighten much (I'm actually considering cutting some of the strap out and then re-sewing it). Also, I wish it had lower arm adjusters as many other jackets have. The arms are by no means overly baggy-they look fine-it's just that there should be a little more adjustment to make sure the elbow armor stays in place, if you have bigger arms or aren't in-between sizes like me, it shouldn't be a problem for you.
Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy with this jacket, it's just the one area I'd like to see them improve a little and that isn't as well thought out as every other aspect of the design.
The airflow is excellent, even at low speeds. I plan to upgrade the back armor but I've been sticking with the foam until it starts to cool down.

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

I wasn't sure weather to get short or standard length (I'm 5'9" 32" waist in jeans). By using the sizing chart and taking measurements it seamed that the standard would be too long, but the short would be too wide. (The short length pants have wider waists for than their standard counterpart, or so the chart says) I went with 48 Standard and I am happy with them, they are a little long, but I'd rather they bunch up a little on my boot than pull up when I'm riding. With the knee armor adjusted in the highest position they are perfect.
I plan to use these as overpants with the liners out most of the time (I wish they were a tad less roomy in the lower legs, or had an adjustment strap) but will definitely be making plenty of use of the liners once things cool down. I tried them on over jeans with liners in and they still are comfortable-just a little more compressed-as the liner is relatively thin.
As someone else mentioned, I would've liked back pockets, although I wouldn't really ride around with much there, it's the place I always instinctively want to put my keys or a wallet while I'm getting ready or locking up. The front pockets aren't greatly useful since they are in an area that get's bunched up, but I have the matching Tornado jacket which is were I stash stuff anyway.
My only other thought on improvements is the hip-padding, it is placed and works fine as padding, but I wish there was some armor instead (but maybe the comfort trade-off was too great). In a completely superficial way, I wish the construction/stitching also was a little more structural around the hip padding so it was maybe more obvious that it's padding and not...uhh...girl hips. Once I get a jacket on it's fine, but before that I try not to catch a glimpse at my reflection.

I used the sizing chart to figure out my size and the gloves fit perfectly when they arrived. They're extremely comfortable riding around, there isn't anything bothersome that reminds me I'm wearing gloves. They only times they've felt hot are when I'm not moving. I haven't had any problems with durability as of yet.

The cover seems to be very well made, but only time will tell. Rained twice so far and it's done as expected in protecting the bike.
