Based in Squamish the team have a huge background in outdoor performance apparel industry and have recently come together to form this new company. Check out www.7meshinc.com for the full story.

Made from Gore-Tex Pro (first time Gore’s premiere fabric is used in cycling apparel), the Revelation Jacket protects you against the weather while remaining highly breathable. To dump excess heat, you can open either the zippered forearm or long side vents–the side vents double as pass-through access to your jersey pockets.
I have worn this jacket for everything from torrential rain mudfests to cold (30s and 40s), sunny, and dry road rides. Never once did I have a problem with overheating. If I had a long uphill slog in front of me, I simply unzipped one or both the side vents. These vents are a bit tricky to unzip while you are riding (at least for me), but definitely simple to close again.
Following the outdoor light and fast movement, the Revelation Jacket weighs a scant 9.5 ounces. You will find no heavy or clunky zippers, snaps, or seams here. Two slim hand pockets hold your ride essentials without getting bulky.
The drop hem provides plenty of coverage to protect your backside from rain and mud, even if you don’t run fenders. The face fabric sheds debris like a boss. I could come home from a gravel ride covered in mud and the jacket would be clean as a whistle.
At $475 the Revelation Jacket does not come cheap. But much like the Arc’teryx jacket I own, I expect it to remain in my arsenal for many years to come. While the Launch Edition Revelation Jacket is currently sold out in some men’s sizes (email them if you are interested in women’s), keep 7mesh on your radar for next month. I am very excited to check out the full line.
We have the revelation and Re-Gen jackets in store now. We also carry the S2S jersey and Glidepath Shorts.
