Re: Wiese gear

My personal experience of Weise is don't expect it to be waterproof. It isn't

Re: Wiese gear

Go for Sinisalo, it's Rukka's budget brand. I have a Rukka suit, and recommended/got Sinisalo for two of my friends. Definitely worth three times it cost. Totally different league compared to the likes of RST, Alpinestars, Bering, Oxford...
P.s. look fc-moto

Re: Wiese gear

I have RST jacket for winter and Weise for summer riding.
Checked the labels and both of them are size 2XL/48
Weise jacket feels like it's bit smaller or tighter compare to RST. And definitely not waterproof but that can be expected on summer jacket with so much ventilation.

Re: Wiese gear

Rukka and now Sinisalo are not that great to look at, but Rukka jackets are as solid as jackets come. Keep an eye on fc-moto for serious discounts.

Probably OK for a short hop on a wet day but if you're on a long trip you'll have water-cooled balls at the end of it. I found that the coat leaked around the front & shoulders, too

Not a hassle at all, especially if you paid using PayPal. Buy prepaid label from fc-moto, post it back, claim expenses from PayPal. 12 times a year, up to €30. Label from fc-moto €19.90...
