7mesh Oro Performance Jacket

Category: Gear

For your everyday bicycle commuter, finding gear that both works to keep you dry without weighing you down or getting in your way is often times hard to come by. Too often it seems that the tenants of form, function, and comfort are missed in this market. So it’s no surprise that when Vancouver-based 7mesh released their new Oro Jacket, we were quite intrigued with the piece.

Taking inspiration from the idea that less is more, the Oro Jacket is a fully waterproof yet breathable jacket that weighs under 100 grams, making it one of the lightest performance jackets on earth. It’s all thanks to combined technology from GORE-TEX Active fabric and SHAKEDRY tech. The jacket’s unique patterning also works to reduce any seam bulk, and a welded raw hem edge, 360-degree reflectivity, a series of vents and pockets, and customized YKK sliders to act as the zippers function to reduce the overall weight of the jacket while ensuring continued and reliable use for years to come. It’s available now for $300. Ride onward. [Purchase]
