I got the Tornado pants I ordered, thanks for the quick service. Unfortunately they aren't really what I expected. I ordered the same size as my old Mistral pants but I'm surprised at how much bulkier the Tornados are. I know you said in your video that they were cut larger than other Rev'it pants, but I didn't realize how much looser and heavier they would be. Also the liner is heavier than I expected. I knew it would be insulated more than the liner in the Mistral pants, but again I wasn't prepared for how much thicker and warmer they would be. Anyway, they seem well made and may be right for some one else, but they aren't what I'm looking for. I guess I was thinking they would be something like an upgraded Mistral, but they are really quite different.

So I'm trying to figure out what would be closer to the Mistral pants. Will the Turbine pants fit more like the Mistrals? I see that their liner is uninsulated, like the Mistrals, so that sounds more like what I want. Thanks for your help.
