When the weather turns rough, you want rain protection you can access in a jiffy. The revised Copilot cycling rain jacket from 7Mesh seeks to provide just that. It’s a seam-sealed, drop-hem, relaxed-fit rain jacket that clips to your bike — saving you time and storage space when both are at a premium.

The Copilot packs into its own rear pocket when you’re ready to stow it on your bike. Based on information from 7mesh, it fits just about anywhere: down tube, top tube, bars, etc.

Other features include a helmet-compatible hood with 3-way draw cords, a water-resistant zipper, and 40d GORE-TEX Paclite Plus face fabric.

Elastic cuffs help keep the sleeves down when the wind starts whipping and wrists get wet, and reflective logos help visibility in any conditions.

The men’s cut comes in blue or black, and 7mesh makes the women’s version in “port,” as in the burgundy-hued wine. From what we can tell, the difference between the men’s and women’s entries consists of the cut and color only.

Great idea yet I wonder about the lack of a long tail for coverage when bent over the bars and the relaxed fit- sounds like it will be flapping in the he wind.
