It's all in the details.

The Resistance Vest is the scalpel in your toolbox. Razor sharp in its focus on minimalist protection, the Vest provides exactly what you need and nothing more.

Built using WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell, the front and rear of the Resistance Vest cut through wind and light rain while the knit sides provide added breathability where it’s needed most. And at just 88 grams (3.1 oz), it packs into its own security pocket and easily disappears in a jersey pocket.

Complementing the minimalist face fabric, the Resistance is constructed using 8mm seam tape to reinforce the carefully trimmed seam allowances and provide added protection from the elements. Gripper elastic on the waist holds the Resistance firmly in place.



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.
