Weise clothing has introduced several new lines for 2014, including a highly specified all-season touring jacket, the BORA.
Designed to cope with the British weather’s unpredictable seasons, the BORA therefore contains many of the features that should make it suitable for overland travel, but we hasten to add we haven’t tested it yet!
The jacket has a reliable ISOTEX waterproof/breathable drop lining and removable 140-gram thermal quilted lining to handle rain and cold. Red detailing highlights this jacket’s technical features, such as the YKK® main central zipper that has a Velcro® and popper retained storm flap for total weather protection.
The colour flashes may be an acquired taste though.
Also picked out in red are the four external waterproof pockets and large rear pocket. Zipped ventilation on the chest, lower arms and torso can be opened up in hot conditions and warm air can escape through the exhaust vent across the back. CE approved armour is fitted to shoulders, elbow and back.
The Weise BORA is produced in sizes SM–5XL in gun/red and retails for £239.99 (including VAT).
