7mesh Revelation Jacket Review

By on January 4, 2015

7Mesh
For most of us, winter means simply switching from our road and mountain bikes over to our cross bike or even fat bike. Squamish, BC based 7mesh understands this–so built a bomber jacket to see us through the inclement weather season. With the goal of releasing a full line of bike apparel come February, 7mesh started with the Launch Edition of the Revelation Jacket. And what a start it is.Upon first seeing the minimalist, clean design of the Revelation Jacket, you can tell the team behind this new company all worked for Arc’teryx at one point (including former CEO Tyler Jordan). Even more so when you slip the jacket on–the fit is impeccable.The design details are extremely well thought out. For example, the removable, under-helmet hood starts at the side of the collar, not the very front as you might find in normal outdoor jackets. This means you won’t strangle yourself when hunched over your bike, fully zipped up against the rain and your vision is never compromised–a critical feature on a bike.

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.

Test of Metal Announces Changes

November 05, 2012 (Squamish, B.C.) – Things continue to evolve for Squamish’s most popular community event and festival, The Test of Metal. Cliff Miller, president of Test of Metal, Inc., announced a series of changes for the 18th edition of the race.

“We’ve got some new partnerships, a new title sponsor, and some changes in our registration,” said Miller. Nesters Market has come on as the title sponsor for this year replacing North Shore Credit Union.

“NSCU was a fabulous sponsor of the Test of Metal for eight years. We really appreciate all they did for us over that time,” said Miller.

He said that Nesters Market will also be a great fit for the Test of Metal. “They’ve been a an amazing community sponsor of the Test of Metal for years, so we’re extremely happy to have Nesters step up and increase their support.”

The Test of Metal also announced partnerships with Squamish Days and Squamish CrossFit. The finish line for the race will be returning to Squamish Logger Sports Grounds, and Squamish CrossFit will be running a event at the finish line called, “Test of Mettle: a contest of Strength and Stones.”

“These are two more great community organizations working with us,” Miller said. “Each year our finish line has more to offer, and the Logger Sports Grounds venue along with the show that Squamish CrossFit is organizing will make for a spectacular day.”

Miller also reminded locals that the 200 local-only spots for people living from Furry Creek to Pemberton will open for registration on December 1st.

He also announced a new way of entering for those who wish to challenge all of the Test of Metal races: The Ore Cusher, The Test of Metal, The Gearjammer, and JABR.

“If you’re one of those riders who wants to compete in all four races, we are opening 150 spots from December 15 to 30th just for you. Any of those 150 that aren’t taken will be added to the 700 registrations available on January 1,”

There will be a total of 1,050 spots open for the race.

“We keep trying to make it better, “ said Miller. “This is our 18th year running on the current course, but we did two years on a short course above Alice Lake, so it’s a bit of a milestone.”
