The W.E.C. jacket is a water resistant, lightweight off road riding jacket with some heavy duty features. Leatt's main concern in designing a jacket like this is the ability for it to integrate with neck braces yet still be comfortable and easy to wear. The collapsible, waterproof fabric, neck allows the rider to decide if they would like to cover up the neck brace and seal out the elements or leave the weather collar off the brace to allow a little more ventilation. If you don't wear a neck brace at all, or if you want to wear the jacket casually, the collar rolls up neatly and is held down with elastic straps. The top front pocket is 100% waterproof to help protect your valuables. More than just great looking this jacket is a great performer.
