REV'IT! Women's Siren Jacket
Decent jacket for the price that is made with better materials then new model
This jacket is not bad for the money. I bought it for the gf and i also own the male version dragon jacket (although i dont wear it often as my teiz powershell suit is far supperior). This review is coming late as its a close out item and not many left to choose from. It is made with cordura unlike the newer rev'it womens jacket that replaced it which has cheaper materials. It comes with the nice prolife armor and larger vents then the male version dragon jacket which is also discontinued for a jacket with inferior materials. The jacket is actually waterproof in downpours, but keep in mind the jacket will get soaked as the waterproof liner is on the inside. Not the greatest system but its the best way to make a breathable jacket. Either way you will still want an external rain suit. As far as durability goes i suspect it will be as any other rev'it jacket. In other words not one you will have for years.

Great all-around jacket
Great all-around women's jacket.
Excellent and thoughtful features, typical with the fit and finish of newer Rev'it products.
Spring-loaded buttons, separately wearable waterproof liners, and soft collar and snaps are all incredibly nice finishing touches.
Added supplemental T-pro back protector, no problem.
Sizing seems tight, but more that it's cut to fit without much slop.

Great construction and styling
I was pretty impressed at the quality of the jacket. The construction is amazing with all the layers and armor. I do feel slightly vulnerable on my back without the CE rated armor, which is upgradeable. So far, having ridden in low 30 degree temps across around nyc and bridges, I've felt no drafts EXCEPT in the neck area which requires a scarf or gator to protect between collar and helmet. I noticed that the jacket allows for more dynamic air flow versus before with a mere leather jacket, I was constantly buffeted by wind. The only complaint is the hook for the collar was a bit reaching to get to, but I think i just need to get used to all the bells and whistles. Also the jacket is waterproof - rode once during the start of evening showers and the rain was beading off the fabric; i was completely dry.
It is a heavy jacket but constructed in a way that doesn't feel heavy when you are wearing it.
I love the styling, it has a cool look that a lot of textile jackets often lack with minimum logo presence.
Overall, the jacket is amazing for the price (esp on closeout) and I hope to wear it for many riding years to come.
Size 40 bought- which is just right fit - meaning I better maintain my weight or jacket will feel tight. Weight 138 lbs. 5'6". Small bust size. I could've gone to 42 but with the layers removed, it is also fine.

Wife loves her jacket!
Have not ridden yet (jacket was a Christmas gift) so can't review airflow qualities. Wife is very happy with fit and style of the jacket and if she's happy...everyone is happy! She is convinced as much as I that Rev'it Jackets are one of the best available. Guess she be getting Rev'it pants soon!

A win for serious Women riders
Women should celebrate the Rev'it range and enjoy all the same features as Men get with the bonus of a correct fit. I live in Australia and could not get a all weather jacket I was happy with. So many jacket compromise on quality and instead try to sell a fashion statement. I am not sure how a sexy looking jacket helps when you come off and hit the road. The Siren does the lot; hot weather, the wet and the cold, protects me and looks great. I really loved Revzilla video for sizing and shipping. Awesome. Kylie

Protection with style
One of the biggest issues for me when riding in the Spring and Fall is air traveling down my neck. Scarves get too bulky. Balaclava's steam up my visor. This jacket is fantastic. I can adjust the collar as needed. The jacket arm length is great-I have long arms and the cuff actually comes to my wrist while riding. No cold air coming up my arms. With the liners in there is little air flow-unless you open the zippered vents, but since I get cold easily I really haven't had the need to. I have only had the jacket for 4-5 weeks so I cannot comment more on the jacket in temps less than 45 or without the liners. Plenty of pockets. Adjustment straps are a nice touch. The length is perfect-sitting below the waist so there isnt any low back exposure to the elements.

Love the REV'IT! Women's Siren Jacket
I am a 5'7" 125 pound woman with a c cup. I chose a 38 in the black and grey option feeling it offers more visibility.
The fit is perfect for me to wear over my work cloths and the customize-able fit options of this jacket are awesome. I am able to still look like a woman while wearing gear that provides top level protection.
The jacket offers adjust-ability in key areas. In the waist to allow you to have a figure, and adjustable areas in key parts of the sleeves to prevent lose fabric that often causes buffeting.
I live in Seattle. An area where the weather can go from sunny 70's to pouring down rain in the lower 50's in a matter of hours. It is important that my gear is able to easily keep up with the whims of mother nature. I can drive into work fully suited up, and in a mater of moments remove inner linings and open vents to be suitably geared for sunny 70 degree temperatures.
I bought the complimentary revit airvolution and kelvin gloves. They both look great with the jacket. The Kelvins are long enough in the wrist to provide the protection you want in rainy cold weather. The airvolutions are shorter and allow for the airflow you need in hot weather.

Best Women's Jacket Yet
When I started riding ten years ago, I was shocked at how little there was available gear-wise, specifically designed for women...at least of the non-"Leather-Mama" variety. Thankfully Rev-It has come along addressing this issue. I upgraded to the Siren jacket after wearing a Kilimanjaro jacket for a year, and I couldn't be happier with the fit and comfort. Best women's jacket I've experienced yet.
