Hannah has been grinding these 7Mesh Revo waterproof shorts through a winter of slop. Is her bum still dry?
7Mesh is a clothing company based in Squamish, British Columbia. If you are British, this is of interest, because they have weather that is not too far removed from ours. There can be days and days of rain – there’s none of that ‘Oh, it’s raining, we’ll wait and ride tomorrow’ that you can get with brands based further south. This means the folks behind this kit – keen riders and fabric nerds – want kit that works for them, and their weather. So if it works for them, there’s a reasonable chance it might work for us.
One of the noticeable features of 7Mesh clothing is that it can look a bit odd on the hanger. That’s because they cut their patterns specifically to suit a riding position – not a shop dummy. There’s a lot of attention to detail in cut, seams, length where you’d want it to cover a gap, and simple fastenings. That all comes at a price, but my experience has been that their kit does last, and functions well – falling into the category of ‘buy one good thing once’, rather than opting for cheaper with more frequent replacements. So how did these shorts fare?

Why do you ask for registration to view some articles?
We get asked this a lot. The simple reason is that content is increasingly expensive to commission, create and publish and where once the cost of this process was mostly covered by advertising revenues, now that’s no longer the case. We increasingly rely on our paying members to keep Singletrack going and we’d love you to become one of our supporters. however, that’s not we are asking right now. You can read the rest of this feature simply by registering an account on our site.
How does being a free, registered user help you?
A good question and it’s a bit complicated. It’s NOT so we can sell your email details, or even to send you newsletters. Our last newsletter was sent out in early 2018 – we really should send out a few. It’s not so we can show you more ads either – in fact when you register we show you fewer ads. The reason is actually because registered users come back and look at more of our content. They start interacting with us and posting comments of their own and joining in forum discussion. That level of interaction is what eventually feeds our new subscriber numbers and so for us the journey to gaining new subscribers is to start by encouraging you to simply register an account. We hope that the benefits that will bring to you will be the first step in you joining us as a paying Singletrack Premier supporter.
