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.

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.
