The REV’IT! Tornado 2 is an update to the perennial favorite Tornado jacket, but REV’IT! decided against messing with perfection and opted instead for several core updates that keep the Tornado 2 as one of the best waterproof, insulated, and armored 3-season, hot weather jacket.
The cut is still a slightly relaxed tour fit for versatility during commuting or touring type rides, but visual styling has been modernized for a cleaner line. Base materials are updated to a higher quality, reflective panels have been tweaked for better visibility, and most importantly, REV’IT! upgraded armor to CE level 2 SEEFLEX™, the most protective, most advanced armor they currently offer.
Bought the REV IT Tornado 2 on closeout. Sizing was great ,pads were in the correct locations ,materials look nice/strong, insulated waterproof liner will be an extra benefit and is easily removed. No back protection, which was stated in description but is still surprising in a jacket in this price range. I purchased the back pad and it fit easily. Color I purchased was considered sand brown, looks more gray ,which I preferred. Nice reflective striping for night use.
