Weise Hydra Leather Jeans
Customer Product Reviews
Bought these to replace my ageing textiles and sooo pleased with them. Plus points... great fit, normal clothing waist size hovers between 36 & 38, ordered 36 and a great overall fit, they also go over my boots (just), look and feel quality and give assurance if the worst was to happen. Down side... internal water proof lining poor so discard, would rather use over trousers. Would be good if there was something more positive than the elasticated waist band. All said still worthy of 5 stars and the usual brilliant service from Sportsbike.
The quality of these jeans is exceptional & the fit is perfect. I take a 34 & after reading the reviews ordered a size 34. The quality of the leather is superb & they are also quite warm. I ride 52 weeks a year for North West Blood Bikes and am out in all weathers, so am looking forward to giving them a real test over the winter. I order a lot of my clothing from the SportsBikeshop & delivery has always been the next day, even on a Sunday.
Quality feel to them
I ordered these from SPORTSBIKESHOP & took delivery within 24hrs. They are as described, with a perfect fit (the sizing is accurate). I've covered a few hundred miles in them now & they are bedding in nicely with a quality feel to them. The waterproof drop liner has not been tested as yet in any significant rain but even though it is a thin membrane it looks well made & up to the job. The zips all work smoothly & tuck away when done up. If you have armoured boots the bottom of each leg will have to go inside as they are reasonably narrow, however my boots are not armoured so the legs do fit over the outside which will keep the rain out. I'm very happy with the service I received & more than happy with the product. Wish I had bought them years ago, so much so I am considering buying the jacket to match!
Great pair of leather jeans
I'm 32 waist and followed other reviews and ordered the correct size. Glad to say they fit. Leather is good quality. They've got a removable waterproof inner and two zip vents on the thighs. Pockets are a little snug but they'll give a bit with time. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. Sportsbikeshop as usual we're fantastic with delivery. I ordered one afternoon and the parcel was delivered the following afternoon. Great overall experience.
Awaiting final verdict
Having followed the advice given by previous reviewers the jacket and jeans fitted right off the bat. Both look and feel well made. However, on the first three times I wore them in the rain my crotch was wet, each time in a different place. On the last and wettest occasion the damp was right across the groin and inner thigh. An inspection found that the stitching on the waterproof lining had come apart and the tape had come off the seam. The jeans were replaced by a new pair with no problem: many thanks to all at Sportsbikshop for excellent service. I was offered alternative jeans but want to persevere with these as I like the design. My only concern with the latter is the use of a neoprene strip, entailing two rows of stitches, right across the area that will sit in a puddle on the saddle during a downpour. My previous, much more expensive, trousers had a 'saddle' patch covering the outside of the seating area. I like the idea of leather that can be treated and fondly hope that the waterproof lining could be replaced when it dies. I await the next rain test and sincerely hope the jeans will pass!!
Really pleased with these jeans. Very good quality leather and well put together. I find the sizing spot on - I wear a 36" waist regular jean and ordered a size 36" which give a relaxed fit around the waist yet well fitting in the legs and thighs. Detachable waterproof liner gives added warmth on cold rides. Hip armour although shown as discontinued on Sportsbikeshop is still available on eBay. Bought these jeans with 25% off making them exceptional value for money.
Great quality and comfort
These are the 2nd pair of Weise Hydra Leather Jeans that I've bought. The first pair are starting to get a bit worn out, and the lining has been destroyed by the Velcro flap on my boots - which is a poor design on the boot, not the jeans. These are heavy, good quality with a good amount of protection as standard. Shame the hip protectors are no longer available, but the thickness and quality of the leather and lining is reassuring. Still not a fan of the waterproof inner lining, other companies (e.g. Buse) do it better, but if you remove the waterproof lining from these, you'll be very happy I think. Top service as always from SBS.
I have been looking for 2 years (as I struggle with leg length as I need a shorter fit). Ordered these, quality and fit perfect, can be worn inside or outside boot. Waterproof lining can be removed easily, also usable air vents to keep you cool. Would highly recommend and I have now purchased the jacket. Now got other biking mates looking as they have the same issues as I did with length. Delivery was brilliant and was kept updated via email. Would highly recommend.
These are great. I have looked at and researched loads but these kept coming on top. They are very well made and comfortable. Detachable waterproof inner liner is a bonus, not tested it yet though. Leather is high quality and there are stretch panels where you need them. They can be worn inside or outside your boots and will not flap in the wind like some others. Size wise is spot on and not the normal lottery with motorcycle clothing. I'm a 30" waist and ordered a 32" these were too big and I have returned them via the excellent returns process. I then ordered the 30" and they fit great, the knee armour actually stays put by your knees. A great product at a great price, might treat myself to the matching jacket now. Highly recommended.
Comfortable, well made
These jean's were comfortable straight from the box, with a quality feel to the leather. Sizing was spot on at the waist. From the waist to the top of the knee the jean fitted really well with no excessive or baggy leather. The leg length is slightly long for me but I can wear these over my Sidi boots without stretching the lower fabric area where the leg zips are so problem solved.
Well made and comfortable
Only worn them twice so far. At the moment they are a little stiff but I would imagine in time they will loosen up and be very comfortable once they mold themselves to my shape. I agree with other comments about size. I am size 34 and so are these! often sizing is a random 'art' and I considered ordering a 32 as previous textile pants have been too slack at 34. However these are bang on, so order your true waist size. I have not tried them out in the rain but now we are in summer mode i expect to have that opportunity quite soon. A good buy and good service from Sportsbikeshop. Safe riding everyone!
Leather and weatherproof
Just arrived and only one ride old, great fit, though stiff as buggery yet. Quality made, although the 6 month factory back order is a mystery. 35 years of riding, these are proof that progress is good. Recommended. However, do be honest about your size, these trousers are! If you have body builders thighs or calves, you will have sizing problems.
Bought to match the jacket
Top notch quality and the waist size is bang on accurate. The waterproof lining is easily removable for those warm days, they are very well made with excellent zips and Velcro fastenings, could do with an exit air vent at the back of the jeans as well as the existing ones at the front. Very pleased with them.
A great find
I was looking for leather jeans without knee sliders as the only time my knee might touch the floor on the road is if I've fell off! These jeans fit the bill perfectly as plain, fit for purpose protection with a quality feel to the leather & stitching. Not used the inner 'condom' yet so can't comment but in theory it should work. Overall happy with my purchase with good service from SBS.
