The Resistance is a jacket every rider should have. Ultralight and supremely packable, no other piece provides greater versatility in such a compact package.


Built using WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell, the Resistance is windproof, extremely water resistant, and incredibly breathable. And at just 115 grams (4 oz), it compresses down to the size of your fist - easily small enough to fit in a jersey – and even fits nicely inside its own security pocket.

Complementing the minimalist face fabric, the Resistance is constructed using 8mm seam tape to reinforce minuscule seam allowances and provide added protection from the elements. Like all of our shells, the Resistance is shaped using Helix patterning which enables the jacket to conform perfectly to your riding position.

For air flow, strategically placed mesh cuff vents allow a small amount of intake by the wrists while air heated by the body can exit through integrated scapula vents. The gripper elastic on the wrists and waist keeps the jacket firmly in place and seals out wind and moisture.

Fit, weather protection, breathability, and weight – the Resistance raises the bar in every way.



  • Based on an aggressive athletic fit with riding articulation, this minimalist piece offers a high level of weather protection from a featherweight textile. Finish taped seams, and laminated scapula vents enhance the sleek profile.

  1. This one is a game-changer. I rarely leave home without it, and the new Ember color is gorgeous and very visible.

  2. It breathes well too: I’m a sweat monster, and it by the end of a hard workout, the inside of this jacket was less swampy than average.

    Another great piece

    One more perfect jacket in my collection. Ultralight and highly packable, great venting on the back, and a perfect fit once you're in a riding position. Just take it with you in your jersey pocket!

    Great Lightweight Jacket

    I purchased the Resistance jacket a few weeks ago to give me added protection on my early morning and late evening rides. The weather has recently turned cooler where I live and the Resistance jacket is the ideal companion. The Resistance jacket is light and compact enough to fit into my jersey ...

    Perfect Wind-Stopper

    7mesh strikes again with the Resistance jacket. It's a perfect fit while on the bike...can feel somewhat restrictive when off, but get into a riding position, and it'll almost disappear! Not only comfortable, the Resistance functions better than any other Windbreaker I've had: it ...

    Great fit on the bike

    Given the trim fit, it's hard to appreciate the fit and design of the jacket until one assumes the position, when everything falls into place just right. Beautiful, minimalist, featherweight design for a garment that provides weather protection with as little insulating effect as possible. Also ...

    My go-to layer!

    Every time I head out for a ride I find myself taking this jacket with me. Easily packs away. Excellent fit!

    Go To Jacket for sudden showers

    Lightweight and well cut, and above all; no sweating. waterproof enough to withstand an hour of rain, and the little that seeps through if you go ahead in rain a full day is no problem for lycra.

    Great Wind-stopper Shell

    I bought this shell jacket one month ago to extend my road cycling to three seasons in British Columbia. So far I love it. I rode eight times early morning in -2 to 5 degree weather. Most days were windy. This shell jacket did exactly what it was designed to do. It cut out the wind. With couple ...

    Amazing jacket

    The Resistance jacket together with the Callaghan Merino jersey makes for a great cool weather combo. Keeps out the cold air on long descents and breathes well on the ascents. I highly recommend.

    Absolutly fantastic jacket

    I love it since the first ride. It keeps the wind away and is in combination with Merino Shirts highly breathable. It keeps also the rain outside and I feel very comfortable! It wouldn't be my last order by 7mesh!!!

    Great jacket for cold ride

    I have only used it a few times when I started feeling too cold on a ride. Great wind protection, and top breathability (always dry inside). It packs so small that it is a no brainer to carry it for every ride. I haven't tested how water resistant it is but as far as a compliment for cold ...

    LIght and confortable

    At this time I only used the jacket a few times beeing awsome, but is so packable that I take it for any emergency....

    Fantastic Jacket

    Hi, I purchased this jacket a few month ago and have only worn it a few times. In the wet, it kept me dry and on those colder morning I have used it to keep the wind chill out. In both cases the jacket works fantastic. Unlike many jackets, you don't feel like you are in a slow cooker as you ...

    Great utility jacket

    I've had the Resistance jacket for around a year now and other than hot summer rides it's been with me almost constantly. From cold spring rides with rain showers to changeable condition multi-day rides at the start of autumn it's been fantastic. Good enough as a rain jacket to keep ...

    Essential Clothing

    The Resistance is the only piece of kit that for me ended up transcending cycling and has become a riding, hiking, adventure, travel, lifestyle essential.

    This jacket is perfect! I have used it all over the Northwest USA and BC Canada. It is the best all round jacket I have ever seen or used. I ALWAYS take this jacket! These guys did an amazing job with fit and material. If your thinking of buying a jacket, buy THIS!

    Perfect for cool mornings or cold descents

    Best way to describe this jacket is giving you the driest weather protection for the lowest weight. It’s not waterproof so don’t rely on it for that but it weighs nothing, packs up to fit in a single jersey pocket with room for gloves and a buff so you still have 2 pockets for other stuff and ...

    It actually works [):-)

    When you read descriptions on bike jackets like this they usually promise you extraordinary performance. So far reality proved them wrong, but this one was different! In rain I do feel warm and dry in this jacket. Yesterday I just was a bit cold after coffee break, but the jacket made me warm again. ...
