Could you check your pm's? I have a few sizing questions.

Thanks

Not really. We just got our shipment last week, and about the only thing that I know for sure is that it runs one size smaller than any other Rev'it! jacket. Obviously it's perfect jacket for cooler conditions, I already sold a couple to riders in Northern states. Once it warms up here, I will test it in the heat. Until then we can only go with my gut feeling - it will be comfortable up to 80 degrees.

Pants for Texans

Howdy...I searched, but didn't find an answer, so here goes:

Riding in Texas, you need mesh pants for at least four months out of the year, and maybe six months some years (last year, for example...). However, I am always nervous about the protection level of mesh, and want a traditional pant for "winter" (such as we get it here), and when traveling to more moderate climates.

I am almost thinking I need two pairs of pants: a mesh pair for summer and a 4-season pair for everything else.

The Tornado might work for the summer pants, but sometimes you need a liner for rain, and the 2-in-1 insulated liner sounds like a non-starter for dealing with those summer showers. Is there a better choice, something with just a wind/water liner?

The Sand or Cayanne Pro pants sound like a good choice for the 4-season pair. Vents well enough for non-summer heat, protects well, liners for flexibility.

So, does this plan make sense? Also, can you take the liner(s) from a 4-season pant and zip them into something like the Airwave?

Thanks....

You got it right. No 4 season outfit will be able to handle Texas summer heat, a set of mesh gear is a MUST.

If you get something like REV'IT! SAND, you will be able to use it in cold to mild weather (up to mid 80's comfortably), and on hot days you can switch to inexpensive AIRWAVE. Liners from SAND will not zip in, but you can still use them as layers, this will give you 100% waterproofing with some breathability.

But as a starting point, SAND suit is way to go. Then you can see how much of a heat you can tolerate. I hope this helps. Cheers,

Dennis

I'm looking for someone to write a detailed review on new HORIZON jacket? I can't wait to see how it works but have way too many jackets myself. If you live in an area with mild to wet climate (northwest) this would be ideal jacket. Please PM me for a DEAL.

Sand Jacket/Pant

Would Sand Jacket/Pant a good fit for 4 season S. Cal (inland empire)?

It is as good as it gets for 4 season use here in Socal. There are better ventilated suits, but none of them have the versatility of SAND. I ran for one full season of daily commuting + a couple of trips to Baja, it rocks.

I'm interested in this jacket as well. I love my Sand set but I like the high-viz. How they compared to one another?

The major difference is the waterproof liner. In SAND it's fully removable, in HORIZON it's built in. I can imagine in Alaska climate HORIZON will work just about perfect. Regards,

Is there a liner available for the Turbine jacket?

I'd consider going for the Tornado pant/jacket combo, but I'd really prefer a more tailored/euro fit.
