This material is REV’IT!’s take on Cordura®. Consisting of 100% high-performance Polyamide yarns, PWR|shell takes the best properties of Cordura® - high melting point, tremendous tear- and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability - and puts the unique REV’IT! design stamp on it. PWR|shell provides high-performance protection for every rider.
PWR|shell 75D mesh
The open-weave constructed PWR|shell features a high melting point, tremendous tear- and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability.
Lorica® is constructed from microfibres that give the material characteristics similar to those of natural leather, including a leather look. This low-maintenance material is not as strong as leather, but softer and lighter, with a consistent thickness that makes it easier to process.
Polyester fabric is a mainstay of REV’IT! garments, providing the stylish silhouette that our apparel is known for. This polyester fabric features a specific rib weave, for optimal performance.
This PWR|shell material has a wax coating for a slightly dull look.
detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner & membrane
In these garments we have added a thermal liner to the detachable hydratex® | G-liner. This becomes one layer that can be easily removed on warm, dry days, and easily added when you need protection from the rain and cold.
Waterproof hydratex®|G-liner coating is applied to the inside of the garment’s inner lining, and the seams are taped to ensure that the garment is waterproof. The REV’IT! hydratex®|G-liner coating is used in the construction of products that demand a basic level of all-weather protection. For most products, the G-liner can not be removed. But now we made the G-liner detachable, and in some cases we add a mesh lining, to prevent the material from sticking to your skin. This maximizes comfort, while preserving the properties of the G-liner construction.
The collar hook and loop allow you to draw back the front side of the collar, allowing air flow to cool the neck during warmer periods of the year without the annoying flapping of the loose collar.
double short connection zipper
The membrane features a short connection zipper, ensuring that the critical waterproofing layer stays in place. But in case you are riding without the membrane; the outer shell also features a short zipper that connects the jacket directly to the trousers.
prepared for Challenger cooling vest insert
The jacket is prepared for the Challenger cooling vest insert. The Challenger can be zipped directly into the outer shell with the connection zippers.
prepared for vest connector NEON
The Vest connector NEON allows you to the upgrade your jacket with a vest that quickly and easily attaches. The highly visible vest offers enhanced safety.

The REV’IT! flexisnap makes it possible to adjust the collar circumference easily and personalize its fit to each rider. A jacket is often worn in more then one season, and the flexisnap makes it possible to adjust the collar within seconds. During winter a wider collar circumference accommodates combining the jacket with a balaclava or wind collar, while during summer, a wider circumference lets an all-important cooling wind into the collar.

My other jacket is a Chronos so I will compare the two.
This one is much cheaper better made and above all it flows a lot of air. The advertised air flow was the reason I bought the Chronos but during the summer I was always sweating like crazy and afraid my concentration would suffer because of the pronounced discomfort.
The Tornado 2 fits me well, keeps me cool and generally does what Rev’it says it should do. It makes me visible to the traffic day and night; it is comfortable and very important for me – washable (unlike leather jackets).
The shoulders and elbows armor is a big improvement but still no back protector included.
The inner liner is much more comfortable than the one in the Chronos and although it is not GORETEX I prefer it because it makes the contact between my elbows and the hard armor more bearable. Why there is no soft material on the inside of the armor is beyond me.
A specific problem to this jacket is the fact that the inner liner is VERY short and it rides up my back leaving my lower back bear. If you raise your hands the inner jacket will lift to the level of your sternum! Very bizarre and this fact prevents me from wearing the inner jacket separately. Usually I don’t use the liner so I can forgive this shortcoming.
The liner, armor and other accessories (cooling vest etc) are interchangeable between the Tornado 2 and the Chronos. That is a big plus!
General rant: Rev’it! PLEASE stop using VELCRO on your gloves! It destroys the 3d mesh inside my jackets sleeves and it is a horrible cheap solution to otherwise great products.
Toen ik dit jack met bijbehorende broek vorig jaar kocht dacht ik dat het voldoende all-weather zou zijn voor mij als mooi-weer rijder. Ik kon toen nog niet weten dat ik een jaar later een rondje Noorwegen zou doen. Behalve op het koudste punt van de reis (minder dan 10 graden Celsius) is het me 100% meegevallen want eigenlijk nooit ben ik te koud geweest. Tijdens een verregende rustdag heb ik het binnenjack gebruikt bij een wandeltocht (regen, bergaf/bergop); dan vraag je net teveel van de ademende werking van het materiaal. Op de motor alles prima.
Been struggling for a while finding right trousers and jacket for hot summer days and this Tornado 2 kit came really handy. Looks great ( I have white version), keeping my body cool even when I ride in the town and have to stop on traffic lights a lot. Got enough protection for road and off road riding. Really surprised that after washing my white jacket all bug marks came off and jacket looks brand new. Top score here.
