Verified Customer Reviews for Weise Hydra WP Leather Jacket
The usual excellent service from Sportsbikeshop.The jacket is excellent quality and comes with back protector,shoulder and elbow pads.Highly recommended!
Great looking jacket, and can confirm it is really effective in very heavy rain. The leather is also treated to encourage beading/run off.
A few negatives, the velcro strap on the collar can be irritating. Scratches neck and seems to want to attach the liner on my helmet every time I get off the bike.
Using the jacket with the hydra pants is a bit tricky. The zip has two different connection points (a full and short connection) and the two connections can clash with each other making zipping up tricky.
However once in, it works as a full one piece waterproof suit.
Overall a high quality garment and I am really pleased. Got me through a tour of North Wales.
Had a Hydra jacket but one of the zips had slightly unstitched. SBS were brilliant, returned the jacket and received a replacement the next day.
The jacket itself is comfortable, dry, and a great fit.
Excellent Jacket. Tried in a short downpour today. Not a hint of a leak. A warm jacket tested in early spring on rides of up to 2 hours. It is tight fitting. I had to go 2 sizes up and I would still say it is a snug but comfortable fit. Excellent service from sportsbikeshop.
I bought this looking for something more autumn suitable and it didn't disapoint. The waterproof lining works as does the insulation layer, rode 4 hrs in sub 10c with light rain not an issue. The jacket is a tight fit if you go for you normal size 1 or 2 up and it fits well, armour in the right places. Very happy with the jacket and bought the matching trousers and I am very pleased with it, I think its good quality and will last well.
So I couldnt decide about a jacket or a one piece leather suit, as planning some track days, I bought the Weise Hydra trouses, and they fitted so well straight of, you didnt notice you were wearing them, even on hot days. So I looked at the jacket too as it has a full zip all round to fit the trousers, First off, would say how impressed I was in asking for a price match on the jacket, and SBS, just dropped the price in the shop to match, excellent.
Got a jacket 2 sizes up as per other reviews, So impressed with the jacket so comfortable straight of again, So tried zipping it to trousers, couldnt believe how easy it is, with trousers and jacket on, its as easy as zipping the front up, and once its zipped together, it all comes together, I love it, even in 30 deg heat its been ok to ride in, zipped together pulls the jacket down, gives you an extra feeling of security, the feel and quality of both parts its outstanding ,worth every penny.
Really happy with the delivery
It came less than 24 from ordering
Opened the package , happy again..it also came with strong coat hanger too which is a plus
Upon trying it on a really good fit but I took the advice of the reviews and ordered a 48 when normally I'd have ordered a 44 so go a couple of sizes bigger
My disappointment came when I zipped up the main zip and pressed the press stud with the company logo on and it fell off unfortunately ,that bit not good
But overall a great product and would recommend I'll just superglue the popper back on to cover the small hole it left.
The water proofing can't comment yet as not been out in rain the inner liner has really good pockets, one for large mobile phones and another good sized for glasses ,keys etc and finally it looks quality .
Great quality leather jacket, understated but distinctive styling, with good venting, separate waterproof and thermal liners which can be mixed and matched, and reflective trim. Also a full set of armour included. I've only used it during the recent hot weather so without liners and with vents open and it was cool enough whilst on the move. I ordered a size up as other reviewers suggested but that was far too tight so exchanged for the next size up which is ideal.
After reading the reviews I went for a bigger size than normal - usually a 40/42 inch chest so ordered the 44 inch - it was still too small so sent it back and ordered a 48 inch, as the 46 size was out of stock. The 48 inch is perfect, allowing for layers underneath and still not feeling tight but also not feeling baggy. I have worn it in light rain and it was fine. Unlike other leather jackets it does not feel restrictive, and is less cumbersome than a textile jacket and definitely safer. Reviews were confusing about what size to go for - the best way is to put on all the layers you are likely to wear on the coldest day and take a loose measurement around your chest - then order that size and you will have the correct sizing. Brilliant service as usual from SBS with regard to next day delivery, easy returns and prompt refunds.
Was looking for a good quality leather jacket , with all the armour already in place. Fancied a Furygan but couldn't find one that had it all. Came across the Weise & decided after reading the positive reviews would give it a go. Looks & fits great ,,,removed the liners and wear it out casually. If the weather stays fine towards end of May will wear it rather than my textiles down to France (bought the matching leather jeans too).
This is a very nice & it's comfortable jacket
I tried a few jackets on in the shop and nearly forgot about this one which I tried on last, glad I did as it's a great jacket and fits like a glove. As others have mentioned I needed to go up a size from my usual, I'm 5'7 & 72kg and normally wear a medium 42 which was too small, the 44 large was a perfect fit for me.
Really nice jacket, feels like excellent quality, leather feels thick, not fully tested out yet as it was bought as a xmas present.
As many others have said, you will need a couple of sizes above your usual size, especially, if like me, you have a bit if a belly!
Comfortable fit, using with all liners removed, pockets are a good size, air vents work well, cuffs are a little tight
I bought the jacket to match the Hydra trousers which I'd bought a couple of weeks before. I normally wear 38-40 but based on other reviews I went for a 44 which I'm happy with but it is a snug fit. If you are big for your size you might consider going up 3 sizes. I'm very happy with the features and quality of the jacket. I ordered it on Saturday afternoon and it arrived the next day before noon. Amazing service!
I bought the jacket and trousers combo. Perfect fit, all mod cons, Found the waterproof lining tended to stick to my skin but nothing a good base layer doesn't dolve. Haven't worked out how attach the thermal liner without the waterproof one for those cold but dry autumn/winter/soring days but that could be just me being dense....
The Hydra jeans and jacket combo is the best rider apparel I've bought in 20+ years of motorcycling. There is no need to compromise safety for waterproofing by wearing textiles anymore for me. I've tested these on a wet motorway ride - the treated leather keeps the water out and dries quickly when the rain stops, so I remained dry and warm beneath.
This is a seriously high quality product. The materials and construction are robust and flawless.
The jacket fits my chest size snugly and comfortably, but isn't very generous for those of us carrying a bit more podge around the middle when zipping up.
Zip ventilation provides additional comfort on warm, dry days. There's adequate zip pockets that are comfortable to use. The armour provides quality protection without unduly restricting movement, but I was disappointed that chest armour wasn't supplied, or even has the option to fit. The waterproof lining is easy to remove for cleaning / dry riding days, as well a thermal liner, which isn't bulky. The two zip options for zipping to a jacket (back or all round) work well with the Hydra jacket.
All in all this combo looks and performs superbly. Quite expensive, butt worth the investment in safety, comfort, and convenience.
Made with good quality leather and has a removable waterproof lining and inside that a removable quilted jacket, the down side is the jacket has two pockets (one for your phone) but the jacket only has one internal pocket when this is removed. The arms are quite long for the length of the body and the "short zip" gets in the way of the full length zip when joining the trousers. You will feel protected when on as the leather is quite thick but I do reccomend getting some Putoline leather wax treatment to help soften it up.

I am considering purchasing the Weise Hydra jacket and Pants. I have a concern about fitment. I am 6ft 2in tall, and wear a 52 in chest jacket. Is the Weise jacket available in a true 52 in size, or are the sizes listed the Euro sizes? Cheers, KaiFebruary 24, 2017
The sizes listed on our website are UK sizes. Past experience has shown that you may need to go up one size or even two on your normal jacket size.
Could you tell me if the jacket has any internal pockets?January 26, 2012
The Weise Hydra-WP comes equipped with a zipped pocket inside the lapel, a zipped pocket in the liner together with a Velcro tab secured phone pocket.
