Weight 230g (XS) Sizes XS-XXL Colours Red, black, blue

Don’t be fooled by the Soft­shell name be­cause the Corsa uses Gore’s stretchy Wind­stop­per fab­ric to make it light­weight and it packs down small. We sized down for our pre­ferred size and fit, which was then tight and racy with a sen­si­ble long tail. Un­like many, the 7Mesh has taped all the seams to keep you drier than most. On cooler days you can wear this with a base layer and its per­for­mance re­mains. It fits and seals well and we liked the two large an­gled rear pock­ets with drainage holes, which are easy to ac­cess even in gloves. It’s im­pres­sive but the taped seams re­duce top-end breatha­bil­ity.
