Weise Hydra WP Leather Jacket
Customer Product Reviews
Great looking jacket
This is a great looking jacket, but definitely go a size up - I'm a 40 inch chest, I went fir a 42 and it's still tight. If you're thinking of adding extra layering (in addition to the thermal vest) you might want to go up yet another size. The leather appears to be good quality and it looks like it's been well put together. Yet to test in the rain.
I got the Jean a few years ago and they have held up well riding every day, so I finally managed to scrape some money together and invested in the jacket. It keeps the wind and rain out but remove the liners on those hot summer days and open up the vents and you will be cool and protected. Go a size larger than your measurements.
Good quality very comfy
Good quality leather and very well finished. Zips feel of a good study standard too. Close fitting round the waistband so you'll have to lay off the beers. I usually buy a 40 chest but I ordered a 44 and it fits well, leaving just enough room to add another layer in the winter. Not overly keen on the zip in the waterproof liner and the quilted liner. Would have preferred these to be permanent, but being able to remove them might grow on me. My only real complaint is the back armour is really uncomfortable so I've had to remove it. To sum up though, very recommended.
Super fast delivery to Germany in less than a week! I would recommend to buy this jacket one size bigger than your regular size. I did and I'm happy with it. The quality of the jacket is very good, to be honest it is not like the 1000 euro stuff from Italy, but it is the most for the value. Sorry for my bad English...
My 2nd Weise leather jacket and I love it
Fantastic quality at a good price. Warm, comfy, protective, and breathable. Already got a Weise leather jacket but seeing this one on sale and the fact that it can be attached to my Weise leather trousers (required for track days) and it being waterproof made it hard to resist. Like my previous Weise wear - had to order two sizes up. Weise has certainly become my go-to brand for motorbiking wear.
First class product
Leather quality is really good with excellent stitching. There are two zipped in inner layers, one waterproof, the other a body warmer. I had to take the body warmer out as it was too warm but should be perfect for winter commuting. We have had frost already in the North East of Scotland and I never felt cold even with the body warmer out. There are elbow and back protectors which are removable. There are some ventilator zips as well. The sleeves are zipped, which makes the jacket easy to put on and take off. Really pleased with the product.
Astonishing for the price
First thing, order 2 sizes larger. I'm a 40" chest and I couldn't even get my arms in a 42", returned and replaced with a 44" which fits perfectly. The jacket looks like it cost 3 times the price, the quality is first class and it looks really good, both the liners are easily removable and the vents work extremely well. Highly recommended.
Excellent quality, recommend
This is a great jacket for someone looking for a versatile three season jacket. The waterproof liner also helps keep you warm during colder periods as it stops the wind. I ordered one size larger than usual, but for me this was too much so I exchanged it for my regular size. I'm 1.75 m and 68 kg. Haven't seen anyone else yet with this jacket in the Netherlands, but this brand should definitely be more known because the quality is outstanding for the price.
Excellent jacket service
Bought a Weise Hydra jacket - came through really quickly but it didn't fit - spoke to someone and he mailed through a return slip then and there - new jacket swapped and fitted perfectly. Return process excellent and very friendly, helpful chap on the phone, a real pleasure to deal with. Jacket great, fits well and is good finish and quality and service of a standard that others should heed. Well done, will definitely recommend you to others.
Quality and cool design
This is my first high quality motorcycle leather jacket. Quality: excellent is the word. You can appreciate the high quality of the leather. I showed it to a friend who's been in the business for years and he was impressed. The zips are also well built and protected from the water. There is also an internal zip all around the jacket to zip it to your motorcycle pants (of course the same brand). It has protections on the back, shoulders and elbows. It has some porous areas for transpiration on back and chest. With regards to water proof it comes with a removable internal membrane. I cannot comment on this since I haven't been under heavy rain yet. But I've been under some rain without the water proof membrane and I was dry so the leather protected me. There is an article on the net of some guy going on a long journey under heavy rain and he claims he was dry. As long as you take care of the leather with leather creams it should last years so it is an investment for the long term. Don't waste your money on cheap tat every two years. I have another leather jacket my brother gave to me he bought 20 years ago and still like almost new. Leather is the way to go. Design and size: it is a short and slim fit jacket. Being slim fit means makes you look good and also no wind and water is coming in. It has two side pockets and one internal small pocket. On the size for regular cloths I am an M-L depending on the manufacturer but on this one I had to go with one size up to the XL.
Fits like a glove
Its been nearly 30 years since I bought a leather bike jacket having favoured textiles. I am ecstatic with this one. The stitching is faultless, the cut is excellent, the leather quality seems every bit as good as that in my Mercedes. I haven't tried it in the wet but do not doubt that the waterproof liner works well. The first jacket a 48" was just too close a fit as I have a 48" chest, but I exchanged for the next one up and the fit is perfect and leaves enough room for a microfleece that would be needed in the winter. The styling is brilliant. Overall, I am very pleased with this and looking forward to getting the matching jeans that were out of stock when I ordered.
Very good product
I'm a size 42 but I actually had to order a size 52 for the jacket to actually fit! Due to this, I sometimes feel that the elbow armour is a bit out of place. But I think it'll just about do the job. The jacket is well built and it's actually waterproof (I've tested it). It's warm too. However, you'll have to wear layers underneath in sub-zero temperatures. It looks excellent and the trousers that go with it are also good. It's perfect for everyday use.
