**(Lake Forest, CA September 3, 2010) **Sound the storm warnings! Scorpion's Tornado textile jacket is set to blow into dealerships this Fall... and blow away the competition. From the tough 600-denier outershell to the removable CE-approved armor inside the shoulder and elbow pockets, this Tornado is packing a punch!
Externally, the ballistic nylon fabric is treated with polyurethane to pump up the water resistance when a storm is blowing, while internally, the removable EverHeat liner keeps the breeze at bay. Speaking of the severe blows, adjustable sleeve tension straps make for a custom fit and keep things from flapping in the breeze in excess of triple digits.
However, there are times when a little breeze is nice, so Scorpion's AirVent™ ventilation system was incorporated into the Tornado's design. Consisting of two zippered high-flow air intake panels in the front of the jacket with two rear vents, the AirVent™ is intended to maximize airflow over the body's core when the panels are unzipped and to seal things up tighter than a drum when the rider doesn't want cold air whistling in.
Need more bells and whistles? Further enhancing the high-speed safety aspect is a full-length back protector pocket (complete with a P.E. foam insert) and all seams are sealed with Scorpion's exclusive ExoStitch® seams. Generously sized zippered hand-warmer pockets and NightViz reflective panels front and rear further enhance functionality of the Tornado textile jacket. Available in men's sizes S-XXL.
When the Tornado blows in, it sucks to be wearing something inferior! Scorpion has you covered when it comes to ExoSkeletal protection... and protecting your wallet as the MSRP is well under $200!*
**Available in Colors: Black, Red or Blue
MSRP: *$189.95 (Sizes S-XL), $204.95 (Size 2XL) **
