Product review: Weise Outlast Houston

I tested this Weise Houston motorcycle jacket (RRP £159.99) for six weeks, covering 1000 miles. 

Here's how I got on...

What’s good?

This Weise Outlast Houston is good value and fully waterproof. I’ve been caught in heavy showers and stayed bone dry. The jacket is quite thick, which is good for colder months, especially with the thermal lining in. For the summer there are plenty of vents... although

I’m not quite sure why each vent needs to be labelled PRO-AIR in huge letters! There’s also a decent level of protection in the shoulders, elbows and for your back, too.

What’s not good?

 It’s quite a heavy jacket and this can make it feel a little uncomfortable. The adjustment straps on the arms are in an awkward position and dig in when you bend your arms.

The outmost layer of material is quite thin, so I’m not sure just how it’d stand up to abrasion in a slide.
