Weise Siberian Waterproof 1 Piece Suit - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Warm, waterproof and windproof I sized up to a XXL (I wear a L Rev it jacket) and this only just fitted over my shoulders, but could have fitted a hippo around the thighs. I like it though and its a firm addition to have. I wish it had more high viz as when I need this I don't really care about looking cool.
Super warm and water proof
Much better than I thought it would be! Why? Because I am always skeptical about products being 'waterproof' having purchased other items that make that claim (not from SBS) and they turned out not to be! I have only done one longer journey so far - 2 hours in moderate rain, but I can tell you that I felt super cosy, warm, not a hint of a draft and dry as a bone. Zip was pretty easy to use and robust. Medium fits well - I am 5' 10" and slim build. Feels loose when you are standing up, but as soon as you are on the bike, it takes up the slack and fits perfectly. Will see how it wears over time, but so far so very good!
Great suit, poor zipper
Very warm and keeps you dry in the rain. However, the zip is made of poor quality metal. My suit is only one week old and the zipper snapped off when I was closing it, making this suit useless. Will return it for a replacement and hope this was a one-off fault.
Dry & Cosy!
Fully tested on M25 during daily commute, beware this is over-sized, you don't need to go larger than your normal size, you can wear your armoured jacket and trousers underneath. Make sure you overlap the velcro fully to keep the rain out, my wife released the elastic at the front waist to make it more comfortable. My last Weise lasted 20 years! I wear a reflective belt over the top for dark days.
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.
