Leave the road behind.
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.
