Weise Spirit Leather Jacket - Black
Customer Product Reviews
First Leather Jacket
Wanted a leather jacket but didn't want to spend a fortune as usage will be limited as no longer commuting by bike. Had Weise boots in the past and they were fine so felt happy with the brand. Being local I went to the store to try on the jacket. Excellent store and service worth a ride out. I am 5'8" medium build and size 44 fits well. This is a heavy and quite stiff jacket so will need a bit of breaking in but does give a sense of protection having elbow, back and shoulder protectors which seem to stay in place nicely. The lower sleeve seems quite snug probably because of the elbow pad but again will wear in. Overall the thickness and weight offer good protection although this is a basic jacket with a simple lining plus removable waist coat for warmth. Can't compare to more expensive kit but for me this is a nice piece of kit and gives a better sense of protection than my fabric jacket. Being quite neutral in design it could double up as an everyday garment. I gave 4 stars because this jacket hasn't got the level of detail found on more expensive items. I would recommend this item at £130 and Sports Bike Shop. Mike.
Excellent jacket for the price
This is a nice heavyweight jacket. It looks even better than the pictures. The quality of the leather seems excellent. Buy a size up as others have said. Keeps out the wind no problem. Minor criticism is the forearms of the sleeves seem a little tight, and I don't have big arms.
Very nice looking jacket
High quality jacket I would say excellent for the price. I like the design. The leather seems high quality. Nice fit as well. I am 5'8" slim type and I've got M size. The jacket fits perfect. Protection is on the right place as well. Highly recommend to everyone.
Good looking, well made jacket
Great quality good looking jacket that has the weight and fell of a more expensive garment, I'm normally 44" and I went one size up (46") and it a great fit, on the downside, the sleeves are a bit more snug, just out the bag, it's a little stiff however every time I've worn it since then it's getting a lot more supple, with all the protection that's with this jacket it gives me confidence while I'm wearing out riding. Very warm on these "fresh" spring mornings also. To end this review I must credit SBS with the service they provide, 2nd to none.
Weise Spirit Leather Jacket
This is a lovely classic looking jacket Excellent value for the money, really good quality thick leather Very comfortable I would recommend getting a size bigger as it is a snug fit. As always a excellent service from SPORTSBIKESHOP.
Fantastic Value for Money - No Regrets
Bought this in the sale, and I must say I don't regret it one bit. A leather jacket for general casual wear of this calibre would be at least £200, and I got one which can be worn casually and keep me safe on the bike for £139. Can't fault it. Perfect service by SBS as usual.
Nice jacket, stiff leather
Love the style of this jacket, seems nicely made and wearable as both a biker and casual jacket. Inbuilt armour is unobtrusive IMO A couple of quibbles though : Doesn't come with a matching zip half but the UK distributor has offered to send me one. Leather is quite stiff so sizing is very important. Cuffs not wide enough to accommodate heavy cuffed gloves or small enough to go in them - best to pair with short cuff gloves.
Great feeling strong leather with protection that makes you feel confident should the worst happen. I purchased a large which is my normal sizing and it's tight, but I like it like that. Still room for sweatshirt and means zero wind gets in. Unfortunately I had to order a few times as heavy creasing in leather and didn't want to risk it not falling out. Great customer service as always. Jacket looks good and getting more comfortable the more I wear it. The only minus point is the mobile phone pocket is very narrow. OK if you have a prehistoric Nokia, but iPhone not so much. Overall very happy
I bought this jacket to wear as casual, all the protection pads are removable. Also comes with a removable inside thermal waist coat. I'm 5ft 9, 42 chest and large fits me great. Nice chunky zips. Leather a little stiff at first but softens the more your wear it. Quality is high. Fast delivery as always too. Many thanks.
Fashionable leather jacket
I was looking for a motorbike jacket to wear for fashion. Amazing quality leather for the price, nice padding and nice to look at. I wanted a tighter fitting leather jacket (as it was more for fashion). So I ordered a size down from what I would with a textile jacket, which was ideal. Nice thermal lining as well. Only annoying thing is the buckles to adjust the waist brush on the arm when walking.
Amazing value for money
Bought a Weise jacket 30 or so years ago, which my son now uses and it is still in great shape. So looking for a new leather myself. I thought that I would give this a go, half expecting to have to send it back as it was so cheap, but no, this is an excellent jacket. Great quality leather and zips, good fit. I will probably just replace the back protector as the one supplied is a bit basic, but no complaints given the price. Thanks Weise.
Another top quality jacket from Weise. Lots of well engineered details, pockets, liners etc. At this price it is a steal! Ive had a Weise jacket for over 10 years and it has never failed me. This latest purchase looks to be the same.
Great jacket made from good leather. Smells totally bovine! Padding and armour feels excellent. The fitting is comfortable...but take a step up in size. Arms are slightly long but its minor. The zips are great and have long pull things that make zipping up and down dream. Buy it...it's a bargain!
