There is also Pivesso in Italy that produce a nice jacket and a lot of other stuff:

(site in italian only)
I never tried one, but you can see their products on many riders (mostly italians). It doesn't look too cheap though...

Look pretty cool and well thought out jackets and 235 euro.. not too bad, although the designs might not be too sponsor logo friendly!

Follow Moto/Giacca Gara/Dakar to find the jackets, cant link the page directly for some reason

they look nice too, priced comparable to the ASW jacket.

Was looking through the jacket range this morning..noticed some small arrows on the side of the box that displays colour options... there are about 15-20 different designs, in all the colour options.. some really nice designs on there.

Would be nice to see a jacket and try it for size etc..

Perhaps this thread title should be changed to just RALLY JACKET OPTIONS

Hey guys,

As mentioned already, the Sprint jacket is VERY thin in its thickness. There are in fact 2 variations to choose from, a summer and winter fleece. I chose summer, as I would have used it in the hot Desert of the UAE (or similar) again.
Here some pics I took of it last year:

Mesh rear side (found along the bottom side of the arm sleeves, too):


Zip for quick access to your drinking back pack:


Looks a little loose (Leatt collor hangs oo low), but only because I wasn't wearing a full body armour suit with arm and elbow protection):






It's a nice jacket, but definitely no us in rocky terrain, as it will tear easily!

As Tony has said, these are really a MX jersey with zips, pockets and camel back access, I think they are great, accept the fact they are not long lasting, but are cheap with fully custom graphics...............there is NO other rally jacket as light or cool, for Safari I use 1 maybe 2 depending on the number of gumby incidents but worth every cent to stay cool and in control

Forgot to mention THIS from Jofama - Halvarssons catalogue. Doesn't cost much and seems pretty good.

The Sprint Design Jacket is definitely a hot weather jacket, however it is more robust than it looks, I beat this one up for 14days and its still in good shape. If you are planning to ride the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt I wouldn't go heavier than sprint designs materials, being cool for 8 hours adds up after a couple of days. The few draw backs are that you don't have so many pockets pockets, which is okay if you have storage on the bike as these days with the rally formats outside Dakar you really only need water & money, the Sat Phone etc....can be stored.

Yes the custom designs cost, but get enough sponsorship and it wont matter!

Fancy you popping in and sharing your experience. How ya been mate?
I wear Sprint Designs stuff ... but on the bicycle. I think for the likes of the Rally's you mention, the Sprint Designs Rally Jacket would be very, very good. For the Australasian Safari, there are too many sticks and bushes out to grab you as you go past. Every year I am amazed at the fact they race cars on the same tracks, as I get swatted by branches on both shoulders ... sometimes at the same time! But we're talking about stuff that breaks race car windscreens and the material of the SD jackets can't manage that.

Garry, Tony, Cummo & JayBo: thanks for the testimonials guys

I will be ordering one in the spring to test it out in next year's summer events. Will see how much abuse it can take...

Question to you guys: for days starting in 20 degrees (C) and topping at 30-35 near midday, should I go for the vented version or the normal one?

Also, is it wise to use a 3lt bladder on the back (can the jacket "carry" the extra weight), or does the bladder sleeve only hold 2lt bladders?

The quote I got for the summer version with 4 logo placements (front, back & on each sleeve) was 260 dollar AUS (140 for the jacket and 30 for each logo placement)... about 270US, or 210 euros. Decent enough I guess

cheers
