REV'IT! Tornado Jacket The REV'IT! Tornado Motorcycle Jacket is built to be your secret weapon against the heat of summer. The REV'IT! Tornado combines durable open mesh panels that flow air better than the competitions, with REVIT! styling and features. The REV'IT! Tornado Jacket is equipped with CE-approved armor, so you dont have to sacrifice safety for comfort. And for the unexpected shower, or cooler day, a removable 2-layer inner jacket provides both waterproofing and insulation. Its wearable separately too, for added convenience when off the bike.

Jackets and to what the size charts indicate. So if you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.
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.

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.
The lightweight COMET glove is designed for touring and off-road use, offering an ideal mix of protection, ventilation, and comfort. The stretch areas allow a precise fit and the short cuff allows mobility at the wrist. The leather-wrapped, hard-shell carbon knuckle, as well as padding on the palm and thumb, offer the level of protection and convenience that off-road and city riders alike demand. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer Shell cowhide, goatskin, PWRshell 500D stretch, heavy Spandex, Automan stretch Lining tri-fleece liner Composition outer shell 51 leather, 34 polyamide, 11 polyester, 4 other fibers lining 100 polyester Protection cowhide, hard-shell knuckle, EVA foam at fingers, thumb and palm ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit Adjustability adjustment tab at cuff Ventilation ventilation panels at fingers and palm Features short cuff length
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.

I've been wearing a pair of Rev'it Comet gloves and am wondering if these would help stretch them into the fall or should I just be looking at Cold-weather gloves? How thick is the material? does it take up significant room inside the glove?
