Je ne suis pas surpris

Depuis que j’achète des produits 7mesh pour le vélo, je suis toujours extrêmement satisfait. Cette veste imperméable dépasse mes attentes par sa capacité à déperler l’eau et aussi son incroyable resparibilité. En plus d’être esthétiquement belle, ces deux critères en font une veste de vélo formidable côté technique.

Eminently packable, surprisingly breathable for a waterproof jacket

The Copilot is the jacket I have been searching for what seems like decades. Waterproof yet highly breathable, good athletic fit without yards of extra material, eminently packable so there is no excuse to not have it with you. Can't believe I waited so long to pull the trigger!

The quality you're always looking for

This jacket is of the highest quality material and fit. Wearing during cool, drizzly morning rides in North Carolina with long climbs, this jacket breathes very well and you don't get that "trash bag" humid feel like some rain jackets. On the way down, this thing lets air in despite the lack of vents and it fits perfect. I know why they didn't put pockets in the front (because when you pedal your stuff hits your thighs and it's annoying) but perhaps a couple air vents would allow for this jacket to be used in even more weather conditions (ie, warmer). Got to even use the pack-itself pouch. Love it though and recommend!

Excellent breathability

I especially like the excellent breathability, wind protection, and clean design the jacket offers. In terms of waterproofness, I did not have any issues so far. Sleeves were too long for me, had to have them shortened by a tailor for technical fabrics.

Solid product, great fit, works well

I got this jacket recently to combat the crazy amount of rain that we've been getting on the west coast. I sweat A LOT even when it's cold out and I was worried that I'd end up like sous vide in this piece. Nothing could be further from the truth. It keeps me dry while being very breathable. I love that I can take it off and just strap it to the frame too.

The search is over

For 20 years I've been searching for a waterproof jacket that doesn't turn into a sweatbox when giving it some beans. I've found it!

Men's Copilot Jacket Small Elk

1st choice would have been blue (hinterland) but wasn’t available at time of ordering. When the brown (elf) version arrived I was delighted. I’m 5’9”, 31” and 69kg and the small is a perfect fit. Not yet worn on the bike though it exudes quality and given the Gortex Paclite construction it is bound to deliver. There is no hood fold tag but it can nicely lay down inside the jacket as an option.

Feels tailor made!

Definitely the best fitting riding jacket I’ve ever used! I’ve only worn it for one weekend bike trip so far but I’m super impressed with the cut and materials of this piece! For reference, I bought an XS. My specs are: 5’8” 135 lbs Chest 34” Arm length 32”

Very breathable 👌

Great jacket for wintry conditions or when an extra layer needs to be added on top of the mountain. Protects from wind, humidity, super breathable and stylish as always with 7mesh 😍

Excellent quality, nice fit for riding

So far I am very pleased with this jacket. It is super light, very packable with a solid fit. I'm 5'10 around 178lbs so I got a size large. Fit is great for a layer underneath. Hood fits over helmet. You should get one for the wet, soggy days.
