Grandiose but the famous details ....
Actually the best and most flexible jacket in the range but unfortunately with weaknesses in detail. First of all, I really like 7mesh, the idea behind it, the story, absolutely terrific and it's a mystery to me how 7mesh manages to make their stuff so thin, light and airy and yet robust .... The Northwood is absolutely brilliant, I wear the jacket at 10 degrees or even in windy 20 degrees, the temperature is always perfect. The jacket just feels great, the feel-good factor is remarkable. I wear the jacket when cycling, running or walking and so far I have been super satisfied, until two things changed .... Firstly, I bought a larger backpack with a hip belt and an Apple Watch Ultra and I noticed two negative things about the Northwood. The jacket is just too long. I'm 1.85 tall and wear a medium and the jacket covers my trouser pockets, it's a pain to have to completely open the hip belt of the backpack to push the jacket up to access the contents of my trouser pockets. I also think the jacket is cut a little too wide, with the hip belt folded down you look like a mushroom in the jacket, the jacket bulges out in a big arc underneath, visually just awful but since it only refers to the backpack with hip belt, I don't deduct a point in my rating for this, the jacket is too good in all other disciplines and so far I'm at 5 stars .... However, there is one thing I cannot accept, not for a jacket for 160€, and that is the cuff. It's so unyielding, it's a pain to uncover the ultra. I had problems with my app that records my workout, it kept interrupting the workout and I wanted to manually control the workout on the watch. I almost fell twice because I couldn't get the wristband of the Northwood over this stupid watch, the wristband kept getting caught on the watch. Dear 7mesh team, it is an absolute impertinence to offer such a rigid and unyielding wristband and your otherwise very good jacket drops to two stars. It can't be difficult to use a flexible elasticated waistband, as you managed to do with the Callaghan Merino Hoody.

Brilliant Wind Jacket
Fantastic jacket and used it in and off the bike. Keeps the wind off and survived a heavy Scottish rain shower keeping me warm and dry. I would normally order a large but medium is a better fit for the bike. Packs down small and great for travelling as well as on the bike.
