Since the mod movement of the 1960s in the UK, the parka has been synonymous with style-
Now thanks to Weise, scooter riders everywhere can get the authentic retro look whilst enjoying the benefits of modern materials, protection and practicality.
Part of the Weise Urban Collection, the Parka Jacket is designed to offer the best of all worlds: protection from the elements whilst on the bike and plenty of practicality and style off it.
Unlike the original 1960s versions, the Weise Parka Jacket is made from water-resistant material. A full-length zipped front closure, with button-down storm flap, elasticated wrist sections and a fully adjustable internal pull cord at the waist also help to keep out the elements, and allow a snug and comfortable fit.
Impact protection is also catered for, as the Parka has pockets at the shoulders and elbows designed for the insertion of CE-approved armor, which is available separately at £19.98 ($32) for a complete set.
While off the scooter, the Parka’s large faux fur-trimmed hood offers extra protection from the cold, and both the trim and hood can be quickly and easily removed for long rides.
Also useful both on and off the bike are the five external pockets – including one zipped pocket on the upper left arm – perfect for carrying all those daily essentials.
The Weise Parka jacket is available in "Stone" in sizes XS-XXL, at a recommended retail price of £79.99 ($127).
