If you’re a bit on the larger side – or lockdown weight gain has caught up with you, this new Weise Core Plus jacket might be just what you need. Sizing goes up to 5XL ‘Plus’, which covers a 60.5″ chest.
In ordinary sizing a large jacket would have a 44″ (112 cm) chest, whilst in Plus size it’s much more generous at 52.5″ (133 cm).
Full size, full spec
Aside from being big on size, the Core Plus jacket is also big on spec and has all the features you’d expect from Weise. It’s AA-rated and comes with CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back protection. It has a breathable, waterproof and windproof drop liner and a 120-gram quilted thermal liner that can be removed. It also has zipped vents at the chest, back and on the arms giving you the option to get air in quickly when the temperature rises.
To prevent any annoying billowing and to enable a custom fit the jacket also has adjusters at the biceps and forearms. Finally, it comes with three external zipped pockets and four internal ones.
