Classic Look for the Weise Brunel Leather Motorcycle Jacket

No matter what changes, there are some constants in motorcycling. And one of those is the need for a decent leather jacket with works when you’re riding – and in the pub. The new Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket seems to offer a decent attempt at both jobs for a reasonable £239.99.

The full-grain cowhide has been waxed to resist moisture and dry more quickly than untreated leather. Which will be handy if you’re caught in the rain. Or someone spills their pint on you.

And it’s been designed and cut in a retro style, with leather overlay on the shoulders and elbows. The cuffs feature zip-fastening and there are adjustable tabs at the bottom of the jacket, secured by poppers. There’s also an 8-inch connecting zip for Weise trousers. And the only Weise branding is pretty subtle on the front of the jacket.

The classic look does contain modern protection. The Brunel has level 2 CE-approved protectors at the shoulders and elbows, and comes complete with a CE-approved Level 1 back protector. And by using flexible Elastofoam, the armour is low profile and curves to fit in a comfortable way. Although that might mean it’s less effective for elbowing the crowds aside when last orders has been called.

The Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket features the traditional three pockets on the outside. And also zipped internal pockets. The colours available are the Black/Cream, Black/Orange and Black/Red.

Sizes are from 40″ to 50″ chests. We’ll presume that’s blokes only for the time being. And all the Weise range is covered by a two-year no-quibble warranty, which is pretty decent. If you want something to get you through the rare summer months in reasonable style the Weise Brunel leather motorcycle jacket seems worth considering. And it’s decent enough value at £239.99. Which should leave you some cash for petrol and non-alcholic refreshment.

New Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket Comes With Over-Trousers

Ever had to peel off soggy jeans after a rainstorm? It was dry and sunny when you left. But then the rain came and now you’re wearing soaked denim leggings. And your legs have turned blue from a combination of the cold and colours running. Well, the new Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket comes with over-trousers in a large rear pocket to prevent that happening again.

The over-trousers aren’t going to get you through a track day. But they will keep you snug and dry if you get caught out by a shower. So while Weise may call it a touring jacket, we’d say it’s as good for short trips and commuting, without having to carry a backpack full of spare kit. Especially when armoured jeans have become more and more popular.

The W-Tex trousers have a full polyester lining, with an elasticated waist and Velcro ankle pull tabs. So they’re easy to wear and should be comfortable.

There’s a removable 120-gram thermal quilted liner to cope with changing temperatures. And large two-way zipped vents at the cuffs, shoulders and on the back to let cool air in when you need it.

The shell of the Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket is made from tough 600 denier material. And there’s removable Knox Micro-Lock CE-approved armour at the shoulders, elbows and back.

The Weise W-Tex Touring Jacket has the large rear pocket for storing your handy over-trousers, and also has four large external pockets and two smaller hand warmer pockets.
