REV'IT! was faced with a tough task with one particular piece in their lineup this year. How do you take a bombproof hot weather outfit and modify it to have even higher levels of functionality? The REV'IT! Turbine Jacket and Pants outfit is immensely popular amongst riders seeking the breathability of mesh without sacrificing protective elements (and don't fret, it's still staying in the lineup). So REV'IT! said, why not borrow elements of the Turbine, but also add waterproof breathability and thermal qualities to stretch the seasonality? Out comes the REV'IT! Tornado Jacket and REV'IT! Tornado Pants, with arguably the most mesh of anything in the REV'IT! lineup and the added bonus of waterproofing. That's forward-thinking.
Watch our REV'IT! Tornado Jacket and Pants Review:
REV'IT! Women's Tornado Jacket and REV'IT! Women's Tornado Pants, with fit specific to a woman's curves and contours. That said, the Tornado is able to flow so much air not only by the size of the mesh panels, but by the size of the mesh weave itself. Both jacket and pants use PWRShell Mesh, a wider gauge mesh designed to allow more air in and exhaust more air out the back for supreme levels of airflow. So with the 2-in-1 liner system out, you won't find a better weapon against the sweltering nature of the summer months. Moving on to the liner, it is REV'IT's brand new 2-in-1 thermal liner and waterproof breathable membrane system, designed to keep you warm but also protected from all forms
Knox TP2 CE Back Protector for added safety. Adding to the safety elements are the laminated reflective panels that can be found strategically placed throughout the garment for visibility.
REV'IT! is constantly building upon designs and making improvements and changes where they see fit. The Tornado, an amalgamation of the Turbine, is another example of REV'IT!'s groundbreaking innovation.
