Weise Nevada ST Jacket - Black / Gun
Customer Product Reviews
Excellent first jacket, much better than expected
Bought this after passing test to replace cheap Amazon jacket. So far so good in the Scottish cold and rain also removable liner and vents should do well in summer. Excellent fit for the "larger" man. Just enough pockets for phone, wallet and keys so all good.
Warm, well made and good looking jacket
Great jacket. Very comfortable, with great adjustments on arms and at neck (which also has a soft feel, neoprene collar). Good mobility/stretch around shoulders, though quite tight at the waist (may be just me!). Expansion cuffs allow for gloves to be worn inside or outside the jacket. The full arms on the removable liner make a big difference, and the liner is very warm. Even without it the jacket is warm enough for the Autumn, with a soft feel inside, and good venting for warmer days. The only downside, also noted by others and hence why only 4 stars, are the very small pockets. Both the inner 'napoleon' pocket, and two main front pockets are very tight/too small. It's a fiddle to get a phone in them, and can't hold anything else alongside it.
Very small pockets
The two front pockets are tiny. I cannot get my hands in them to remove my wallet or mobile. The rest of the jacket is very good. I have only worn it a couple of time so don't know if it's waterproof. I sent it back but they wouldn't accept it because it wasn't in original condition. I queried this but got no reply. I think the reason was, LABELS were not sent with it. Shame as I have had quite a few goods from SPORTSBIKESHOP and been happy with them.
Very good quality, loads of pockets and winter liner. in regards to the size don't go over what you normally would wear, your size will have room to spare for a fleece or jumper underneath even with winter liner attached. for me personally neck collar is one of the best features of this jacket, you can adjust it, it's high and made out of very soft fabric nearly eliminating a need for neck warmer. Very good stitching and Velcros. Haven't tried it in a pouring rain yet, it was fine in a light rain. I honestly can't fault it so far.
OK so far
Sportsbikeshop service brilliant. Received click & collect in one day; carriage free. Jacket good. Bit of a high neck for me - irritates but will probably get used to it. Right lower pocket a bit small, as is internal - mobile sticks out. Test will be rain. Never had any (including very expensive) that didn't leak.
Excellent for the money
My first proper biking jacket. Waterproof (apparently; I see no reason it won't be), removable liner is handy. Chest zips are vents, not pockets as I thought. Front pockets are a bit awkward but certainly work. Inside pocket just big enough to hold an iPad mini. So far very impressed and pleased I bought it. And all for £85 - bargain!
Lots of straps and Velcro to adjust the fit. I noticed the buttons in the sleeves that attach the removable thermal lining are colour coded so you don't get them the wrong way as it's a bit of an awkward job. That indicates to me someone's put some care and thought into the design.
Weise jacket number 2
It's well sized, I went next size up to allow jumper's etc To early to say about how waterproof it is but if like my last Weise jacket I will be well pleased. Riding 5 degrees C with T shirt, jumper and snood was warm no cold spots will need to be used a while to bed armour in. Have not used air vents yet but vents in arm's and main body This my second Weise jacket, if it is as good and hard wearing as my first I will be very pleased.
Only just started using this jacket but appears well made, plenty of adjustment velcro and looks the part. Went for a Medium and fit is fine although arms a bit too long. Only been caught in a shower so far and didn't let in any water. Mentioned elsewhere is the inner liner stopping short at the front so cold neck and front of chest. I may remove this and wear my own layer. Also outside pockets fiddly to use. I'm being picky though as for this price its very good value.
Good jacket, but......
Overall a nice jacket, the fit and feel are very good, with lots of buckles and vents, and good strong zips. Only one frontal zip though, and a Velcro flap to cover, and as the inner liner stops short either side of the zip, a cold spot is created down your chest. Also, unfortunately, the jacket did not stay waterproof after ten minutes in a downpour, leaving me with wet arms around the elbow areas.
