7MESH CORSA SOFTSHELL
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.
