Oh, one more thing about the Tornado pants. I see they are intended to be able to be worn as over-pants. Are they baggy when there is no liner or pants underneath? I won't typically be wearing pants underneath but do like having a liner available, like the Mistrals had. Are there other pants I should be considering that have lots of venting in the summer and also have a liner? Thanks.

Hi,

I believe new TORNADO pants will breath a little better than MISTRAL. I have no idea how exactly they fit, they are supposed to show up any day now. I will post my impressions on fit once I try them on.

I do not think extra insulation layer attached to waterproof liner will present any issue. It's not nearly as thick as SAND thermal liner and if anything it will help to prevent cold feeling coming from waterproof liner when the outer shell gets wet.

I do not think TORNADO pant is designed as overpant. Even though they have long zippers on the side, they are cut to be worn over underwear.

Keep an eye on this thread or better yet find Beach Moto and Facebook and become a fan, I will post my impressions once I try them on. Cheers,

Dennis

Great review, check order

Dennis:

I just finished reading your review for the hundredth time. Thanks for the pics of the jacket collar and sleeve vents - very informative. Ordered Size 36 since you said that this jacket runs a little looser than typical Rev'it gear.

I have seen them. The issue with the sample I had a chance to try on (the same was used in Revzilla infomercial you most likely saw) is that pre-production samples often fit completely different. So I would never say with authority how exactly they are going to fit unless I try production model (coming to me tomorrow) Stay tuned.

A couple of updates:

We just implemented Live Help on our website. Now you can initiate chat with one click every time you have a question. Much faster than e-mailing!

We just received a batch of 2011 gloves - SUMMIT, SUMMIT H20, PHANTOM Gore-Tex and CURB.

TORNADO jackets and pants are on the way here, waiting for UPS to deliver them possibly tomorrow

EVEREST Gore-Tex jacket is now available.

I'm so excited about all these new products

I like the pockets on the mens pants. Seem like a better set up than the slit pockets. Just wondering how deep they are. Any idea?

just received the Ladies Ventura jacket...

and I am really impressed! As a commuter I really appreciate all of the reflective bits on the shoulder (where the removable collar attaches), the horizontal band on the lower back, and the white background on the Rev'it logo on the sides of the upper arm - they all light up very nicely with just a flashlight. Since I'm back to commuting in the dark thanks to Daylight Savings Time, all of the reflective bits will really help my visibility.

The material has a really nice feel. It feels pretty sturdy without feeling crunchy or stiff. It looks like Rev'it improved the sturdiness of their waterproof liner too. I've heard that some folks have torn it while pulling too hard on the snaps, but this liner is much stouter.

My favorite feature though has to be the long zippers on the sleeves which will make putting on gloves much easier (I like to tuck mine inside the sleeves) and they also function as vents.

Last but not least, the fit is spot on. I hope to get a ride in tomorrow or Sunday - I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks Dennis!

Well, as always I'm happy to hear about proper fit. Can you please post little review with pictures once you ride in it?

Dropped by the shop yesterday and picked up a Sand jacket and pants. Only had 30 minutes to try everything on and walk out the door with the new purchase. Dennis made sure that happened.

Couldn't have been better.

Thanks Dennis!

You are welcome. You are probably already riding around in your new gear

It was nice to meet you yesterday. Whatever you do, do not wear those gloves on the plane if you want to make it to Vienna
