REV'IT! Sirocco Jacket

Hi BB,

The REV'IT! Sirocco is the All-Weather 4-season option which also provides maximum ventilation by using mesh panels for extreme hot weather riding. It will not do temperatures as low as the Cayenne Pro, but it allows for dramatically better airflow. Many folks in the Southwest love this Jacket. It was WebBikeWorld 2008 Product of the Year.

You are correct. The REVIT Sirocco is longer than the Cayenne Pro. The CP is meant to fit at the waist and the Sirocco is meant to come past the hip.

I wear an XL and am about 5'10". It hits me right at the mid thigh lengthwise.

The LG is a 28" length (shoulder to bottom of coat), the XL a 29", the XXL is 30" respectively.

Not sure the length on the Joe Rocket for comparison, but let me know any other questions you have. Also I am hoping based on my measurements and height comparison you can get a gauge on where it will sit lengthwise.

How tall are you?

Anthony

Also, how long is the jacket overall top to bottom? It appears to be quite a bit longer than the Cayenne and I remember reading that it is sometimes too long for certain individuals. I currently wear a Joe Rocket ballistic and the length seems about right on that jacket.

Full perf'ed Leather sport summer glove, there is lots of reinforced leather in the important areas as well as carbon fiber on the knuckles as well as on some of the fingers. I might be replacing my Monster Gloves with these

Any and all questions welcome.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm 5'9", 175 pounds, and 40/41 inch chest. I normally wear medium gear. I don't know where you measured, but measuring near the collar and then straight down on my current jacket I get about 28" or 29", so it sounds similar. The Rocket hits me about mid hip though.

I live in Southern Indiana and it gets hot and humid here. That, along with the length, is why I was considering the Scirroco. It does get cold and wet here though in the winters, which may be a problem. If I layer, and/or add a heated liner, underneath what kind of low temperature comfort do you think I can expect?

I am assuming that the Cayenne Pro is the most versatile all around jacket in the lineup.

Hey BB,

You will be a large.

The thermo liner in the REV'IT! Sirocco Jacket will take you down to about the high 30's just wearing normal layers under the coat. With a heated vest / layers on you should be able to take it down much further. It is wind proof with the liner(s) in.

While the REV'IT Cayenne Pro Jacket goes lower in temp out of the gates, from a heat perspective the Sirocco will absolutely perform better.

Based on what you have mentioned so far, I would steer you into the Sirocco unless you were dead set against the mid hip length.

Feel free to shoot me a line or give us a ring to chat as you get closer to making your decision.

Thanks,

Anthony

Wanna trade? Its 45 and rainy here at the moment.

We can swap for a bit if you like. I'll do the South Pacific and come back with a sweet Sailor Jerry-esque tattoo...

Anthony,

I'm very happy with my new Cayenne Pro gear. I have worn the jacket only twice to commute to work and back but have not yet worn the pants, only tried them on. I really like the dark green colour but still wondering if I should have gone with the light grey pants just to get away from the matching suit look.
This stuff is really comfortable and the quality is obvious as soon as I tried it on.
The SAS-Tec back protector is something I would advise to anyone considering it. I hope to never find out first hand, but it seems it will do lots to protect my spine.
You guys are great to deal with, shipping was quick too. You'll certainly have more of my business in future.

Thanks, John

Dragon sizing and other stuff

Hi Anthony,

I need to get myself kitted out within a budget and was looking at the Dragon jacket as an ideal combo of price and features, a jacket I can wear year-round. I'm just starting out in riding (a real n00b) and will probably do more commuting and daytripping initially, and getting into longer touring with experience.

Looking at Rev'It sizing charts I'm still a bit unclear and want to confirm what size I should be looking at. As un hombre I'm height-challenged at 5'6", with a chest size of 40". I can fit into 38-39" suit jackets, but obviously with a moto jacket I'd like to be able to layer some fleece under if necessary. Is the medium going to be a good fit despite the fact I'm just above the chest size recommendation? And how's the length on that for someone my height?

As for pants I was thinking about the Zip as a do-it-all pant for commuting and daytripping. How has the feedback been for it? I haven't found too much about it except for the one review on your site. Sizing wise, I'm about a 30" x 29", but the 30" is based on wearing them right on or just below my hips. Is that how I would also wear moto pants or should they be pulled higher? Anyway, which size should I be looking at?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

I'm still on the fence on buying a Dragon jacket to replace my 10 year old and still functioning Kilimanjaro jacket. I still am hung up about the waterproof liner. Lest say its warm, I'm riding with the liner out it starts raining, I pull over zip in the liner and ride off happy knowing I will be dry. Well after a couple of hours, the rain stops, sun comes out, man this jacket is toasty so you pull over take out the liner and put I on a soggy jacket, which if is hot enough may keep you cool, which would be a plus or your now I'm cold from the rain soaked outer jacket. I could be wrong but I have been out on days like this. Just a thought.

Cayenne Pro - Awesome

Thanks to Patrick, I own a great fitting Cayenne Pro. This jacket is simply awesome. It is worth the extra bucks. Turbine pants are next purchase.

I have a question about my new cayenne pro jacket. There is a feedthru hole for a camelback or other such drinking tube but what type of bladder would fit inside the jacket and where?

Thanks, John

Hi John,

Thanks for tipping your hat to our service. We appreciate it. Also thanks for the patience on your camel-back question. I got married Friday night and have been out of the loop most of the weekend.

The old REVIT Cayenne had an integrated pocket for the bladder, but it was deleted from the REVIT Cayenne Pro design due to a widespread lack of use.

The Cayenne Pro is meant to be used with smaller backpack style Camelbacks worn under the coat, not the integrated bladder kind. We are partial to the Camelback HydroBack in-house.

Let me know what else I could offer you, John.
