Perfect for riders that don’t stop hitting the roads or trails when temperatures drop, the Strategy is a close-fitting protective jacket the works comfortably for colder weather.
Strategy - a plan of action designed to achieve an overall aim (Wikipedia).
The Strategy jacket optimally combines two different WINDSTOPPER® Softshell textiles. All panels use the same smooth water resistant face on the outside but on the inside a gridded high-loft interior fleece is strategically positioned to add insulation over the chest, shoulders, and kidneys. A lower loft fleece ensures a trim profile and comfortable fit on the arms, abdomen, and back where mobility takes precedence. Fully taped, the overall package is cozy warm, completely windproof and extremely water resistant.
The Strategy has three rear pockets – two angled, zippered pockets, and an open top-loader in the middle. A high collar secures against the weather, and an AquaGuard Vislon front zip vents easily and provides added wind and rain protection while eliminating the need for a bulky zipper flap. The Strategy is patterned with riding articulation for ideal fit while you’re on the bike.
Designed to wear over a base or mid layer depending on the conditions, the Strategy will keep you warm, dry, and comfortable.
"The @7meshinc Strategy Jacket is a blend between a cycling jacket and jersey with an incredible depth of detail right down to seams. Using a hands-on, in-house approach, the designers leverage their experience and best practices in outdoor apparel to deliver something that is unique to cycling." -Life Is A Beautiful Detail
"The Strategy jacket is a very versatile piece of bike wear. It functions well as a lightly-insulated wind blocker on its own, and combined with a waterproof outer shell or an insulating layer, it does a very good job of comfortably adapting to the elements while also providing gear storage." -Blister Gear Review
"The quality of jackets in this test was very high and it was a close call between the Gore and 7mesh for the top spot. Greedily, we want them both for different riding! We make no apology for awarding a rare five stars to the Strategy jacket - it's that good." - Mountain Biking UK
