Pull the over-the-helmet hood up on a slow grind of a climb, or while hunkered down behind a windbreak waiting for the rest of the pack. When the weather breaks down, the Guardian stands up-its a fully waterproof GORE-TEX solution for all-mountain winter riding.
Welcome to the Wet Coast of Canada-where 7mesh HQ lies in the rain shadow of the Coast Range, huddled between jagged peaks and swollen winter rivers. It only makes sense that wed eventually design a burly mountain bike jacket for the absolute worst of conditions. You know the kind; sleeting sideways as the temperature plays leap frog with zero degrees celsius. The Guardian jacket is your GORE-TEX shelter in the storm.
