Take a look at any young brand, and you’ll find a statement product that sets the tone, creates a wave and points to the future. For 7mesh, it’s the Revelation jacket. Although when we launched the original version in 2014, the Revelation didn’t so much point to the future as into the distance - and that’s where it’s ready to take you.
The Revelation is our take on a classic all-conditions bike jacket. We designed it because we couldn’t find a weatherproof outer layer that did everything well, one that could handle local loops and ultra expeditions. In other words, a waterproof cycling jacket that excels when the weather turns and the rain sets in, wherever you’re riding. Luckily, we had our hometown of Squamish - top contender for the wettest place in Canada - to help us with the rain. For the rest, it was down to our designers.
Like all of our jackets, the Revelation is patterned for the bike, but during development, we eased the fit to allow a little room for layering and campfire comfort. You’ll notice the length is just right across the front and back, with freedom across the hips, even when you’re hunched over the bars. And it won’t hang at the front, or bind at the shoulders, as lesser jackets tend to do.
The fabric throughout is GORE-TEX Pro®, a technology chosen for its superior ability to provide breathability with durable weather protection. In practice, it has the widest functioning range of use of any Gore-Tex material, making it an obvious choice for the bike, where temperatures can often fluctuate minute by minute. Naturally, it’s engineered to meet the Gore-tex “Guaranteed to Keep You Dry” standard, a solid-gold assurance that waterproofness is reliably retained for the life of the jacket.
Trims include zippered forearm vents and side vents that double as pass-throughs for easy access to jersey pockets. A removable under-helmet hood complete with brim extends the usefulness of the jacket in mixed conditions. Hand pockets hold essentials, while the adjustable hem, cuffs and hood provide a customized fit. Thoughtful elements of reflectivity at the rear and cuffs complete the jacket.
