A real bike touring weekend means you'll be spending plenty of time in and out of the saddle while you explore out of the way towns, sample little known local beers, and find the places most visitors don't. Knowing this, 7mesh Industries cut the Recon Men's Cycling Jacket for life on two wheels or two feet, with a slightly relaxed 7 Day fit to accommodate layering and Helix patterning to provide pedal ready mobility. The Recon also boasts stretch woven underarm panels for increased breathability and freedom of movement, so it easily transitions from riding down a gravelly forest road to wandering down main street. While the fit is the Recon's foundation, it's the Windstopper membrane that makes it a true masterpiece. It blends the softness of a midlayer with the water resistance of a softshell and the windproofing of a hard shell, so it will keep you comfortable in cool, blustery, and drizzly weather. For a fabric that can do so much, Windstopper is surprisingly light the Recon weighs just 300 grams and has slim, fully taped seams and a SmoothLock adjustable hem for extra weather protection without added weight or bulk. 7mesh got all the details right, too, like do it all zippered hand pockets, a soft brushed internal collar, and reflective details to help you stay visible when you're riding through the twilight to make your next campsite.
