Weise Siberian Waterproof 1 Piece Suit - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Dry from the neck down
This suit is 100% to keep you dry and warm. first time I wore it the heavens opened up , for half an hour of my journey rain lashed heavy. when I stopped at my work place I took off the suit and I was dry as a bone and warm. amazed. if you buy anything then buy this suit.
One piece quilted Suit
The suit is very warm, fits well and does protect you from all the elements. If ordering then I would order the next size up from what you normally wear. The only issue with this suit however is the Zip. This suit would be a lot better if a stronger zip was fitted, even if it increased the price the suit would still be a great buy. I have been wearing this over the winter and only need to wear a Tshirt and light jumper underneath to keep warm.
A few flaws
Really nice and warm but you could only really use it in the cold, it'd boil you in mild weather and not breathable whatsoever. Sizing about right. I'm 5'8" 30" leg and Medium fits fine. The legs would be too short if you had much longer legs though I'd say. Fairly easy to get on and off although could do with a longer zip on legs/ankle. Arm cuffs are a little to wide . The neck is the main downside I have found it's too tight. I don't think I have a particulars broad neck either! Certainly not a flattering fit. It'll keep you warm and dry in winter though.
Ultimate winter commute
Bought this for the winter commute and already done a couple of 1hr runs in torrential rain with no leaks, but I will warn you unless it's below 10deg you will sweat up. Might be a bit 80's (as described by some credit card bikers) but I'm the one laughing at £85 !!!!
I was pleased with the suit until I noticed the huge rip that appeared on the zip. It does a good job of keeping the cold and wet out, but I was wary from day one weather it would last. I only commute so god knows how this happened. I've asked Sportsbikeshop if they are prepared to replace it, fingers crossed they will. Even though it's not the most expense item in the world, it's still a fair amount to fork out for only a months use.
I really love this all in one and this is the second one I have bought. I only needed to replace it for a smaller one, not for any other reason. It is very warm and no rain gets in at all. Yes it's a little bit of a faff to get into but what biking gear isn't? However, as a lady rider, this is the only all in one thermal suit that I could find and although it fits around the body, the arms and the legs are extremely long. Wish there was the same product in a ladies sizing.
Waste of money
I can only give this a really bad review. The delivery was excellent. The suit however is awful, the zip is very very fiddly and there is an unnecessary membrane that keeps getting caught in the teeth. Then there is the fact that I only had it three days and it tore on the inside leg from my foot peg so it has rendered the suit unusable. I have checked and there is no sharp edges on the foot peg so I can only think the material is not very strong. The three days I was able to use it, it was warm and waterproof.
Great service from Sportsbikeshop and the product was well packaged. I brought a small and it's a bit tight, so you may want to go up a size. Ordered a medium which still hasn't come but I'm not worried as they have a 365 days return policy! Will review the medium for size when it comes. BTW I'm 5' 7'' and 11 stone.
