Made from tough full-grain cowhide, the leather is waxed, so that it resists moisture. Waxed leather dries more quickly than untreated leather and waxing avoids the leather becoming saturated if you get caught in the rain, as well as the necessity of re-conditioning non-waxed leather with saddle soap (or similar) following a soaking.
Weise have fitted the Brunel with Level 2 CE-approved protectors at the shoulders and elbows, and it comes with a CE-approved back protector (Level 1) as well. Produced from highly flexible Elastofoam®, the low-profile protectors curve to fit the wearer, giving an unobtrusive fit that feels comfortable from the moment the jacket is put on.
Its retro styling is emphasised by authentic details, such as zip-fastening for the cuffs and three outer pockets. There is leather overlay on the shoulders and elbows, and adjustable tabs at the base of the jacket, which are secured by poppers.
Practical features include zipped internal pockets and an 8-inch zipper that can be attached to Weise jeans.
The Weise Brunel leather jacket is available in sizes 40”-50” chest, in a choice of Black/Orange, Black/Red and Black/Cream, retailing for £239.99, including VAT. Like all Weise products it is covered by a 2-year no-quibble warranty.
