REVIT’s women’s styles are sold in European sizes. We used a size 42 on our Fit Check Mannequin Shirley who is a standard size Large, Dress size 12. The jacket measured out correctly at 38” max. The waist sizes listed in REVIT’s standard chart are smaller than the actual sizes for each jacket. For example on the size 42 we used for the photo shoot on Shirley, , I measure the max waist at about 36”. Shirley has a waist of about 32” and it looks just fine on her. The jacket flares out a bit at the belt line to about 40”.

Our Two Cents
The Tornado 3 jacket by REVIT is all new for 2020. The third revision of this jacket is the most recent update and the version 2 was introduced in 2016. The Tornado is an excellent all-purpose street jacket for hot weather primarily, but the jacket is equipped with a waterproof and insulated liner for cooler and/or wet weather.
I’ve looked this new version over pretty thoroughly and this version 3 has only one or two minor design changes: 1) the collar now has a double sided snap at the neck rather than a hook and loop to hold the collar tab open; 2) the reflective stripes on the sleeves now have a new fancy REVIT logo embossed on them; 3) the removable liner is now a new soft touch material (looks kind of like rubber/leather), rather than slick nylon.
The Tornado 3 is a mostly mesh shell jacket with a removable liner. So with the liner removed, it’s a great style for hot weather. The wind should blow right through. But in cooler weather or wet weather, you can put the liner in for warmth and to keep dry. The liner insert doubles as a casual jacket in itself too. So if you are traveling, the liner can serve a purpose off the bike, which will save you some packing space (see our close up pictures to see the liner as a jacket). One point to make… MOST mesh jackets come with a liner, but they are strictly wind/rain liners, but the liner here is lightly insulated as well, which should make the jacket with liner more comfortable in lower temps. Hopefully you won’t be caught in a rain when it’s really hot… that would be the only circumstance when the insulation in the liner would be a bummer. Probably an unlikely scenario.
Armor inserts are included for the shoulders and elbows as standard. It’s REVIT’s CE Level 2 stuff which is about as good as it gets. The armor is a firm rubber compound and it is molded in a honeycomb pattern which allows plenty of air flow. The back protector is optional. The jacket is equipped with a pocket to accept a Seesoft CE Level 2 Back Protector Insert type RV (RV refers to the shape). Take the link below to order. For women’s size 36 choose size 3; for 38 to 44, choose size 4 and for 46 and larger choose size 5.
I’ve included a link below to the matching Tornado 3 pants. The pants have a similar feature list to the jacket and will work well for the same environments. Not everybody gets the full outfit, so if you just wear jeans, consider connecting the jacket to your favorite jeans with REVIT’s Safeway belt (take the link below). The Tornado jackets and pants continue to be great multi-season riding apparel just about any rider can love! :: Paul, 02-03-20
REVIT says: The Tornado 3 Ladies jacket is ideal for touring in the spring, summer or autumn, but also has the ability to keep you warm and waterproof along the way. Not to mention, it includes top-notch protection levels. Designed with the female fit in mind, we take this functional jacket and tailor it in all the right places. We then include 3D air mesh panels around the shoulders and the PWR|shell mesh on the front, back, and arms in order to keep you comfortable and fresh on those warmer days. On colder mornings or during bad weather, the breathable and flexible hydratex®|Lite 2-in-1 liner will keep the rider dry and content. The liner is detachable, so taking it out and putting it back in done with ease. Furthermore, the liner also works well as a separately wearable jacket. Inside the Tornado 3 Ladies jacket, we feature our award-winning CE-level 2 SEEFLEX™ armor at the shoulder and elbows, and the Tornado 3 can further be fortified with our SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector. Various adjustment tabs and straps will ensure a perfect fit for the rider.
