It's all in the details.

After a long and winding ascent, the balmy summer conditions of the valley are far behind and the rarefied air of the alpine pass blows briskly. It's not exactly inclement weather, but it's cool enough to warrant a dash of protection for a lunch in the meadow and for the long descent ahead. Something wind-resistant, ultra-breathable, and svelte enough to have been packed in the first place.

The Northwoods Windshell is an evolution of the Northwoods Jacket. Now with a low profile hood and longer back, the Northwoods seals tightly against wind. And at only 112 grams (4 oz) it disappears easily into a jersey pocket or pack. After all, the best shell is the one you actually brought with you.

DWR

DWR

Durable Water Repellency (DWR) refers to chemical treatments applied to fabrics to increase their resistance to water absorption. DWR chemical penetrates into the fibers and binds there, protecting the textile so that water beads and rolls off the outer layer rather than being absorbed. This helps keep fabric surfaces dry and clean, which in turn allows fabrics to main their waterproof and breathable characteristics. Significant changes to DWR chemistry are currently being developed, with reputable manufacturers and brands phasing out the use of “C8” based DWR treatments that may have negative environmental impacts. 7mesh works with vendors to ensure we use the best DWR treatments available; our fabrics do not use any C8-based DWRs.
