It's all in the details.

Like the Recon Jacket that inspired it, the Recon Short is built from WINDSTOPPER® fabric that is comfortable, highly breathable, highly water-resistant, and completely windproof. This combination of attributes makes the Recon an ideal choice for days when the rain comes down, or the trail spray comes up. Based off our proven Glidepath Short, the Recon uses articulated crotch and leg patterning that provides an optimal riding position and excellent freedom of movement. Factor in a slightly longer fit and scalloped leg opening - the front is longer than the back, adding protection while accommodating knee pads - and you have the ultimate off-season short.

The Recon has low profile built-in waist adjusters, and also has loops for riders who prefer a belt. Front hand pockets hold quick-access items and smooth out the post-ride transition to your daily life.



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.



Offers total windproofness with maximum breathability, combining the comfort of a soft mid-layer and the water resistance of a shell in one garment. WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shells keep you comfortable with the freedom of movement you need for enhanced performance in a wide range of activities and weather conditions.
