Ticks every box to justify the asking price.
Shape is key with a waterproof short, because the lack of stretchiness can often mean the short hangs like a nappy around the backside.
Thankfully, the well-cut Revo swerves this look and fits like a standard longer short but with excellent freedom of movement.
The waist retention cinch straps are simple and effective and the sloping cut at the knee works great with or without pads.
In every condition, from slush and mud to torrential rain, the Revo hasn’t flinched.
It breathes very well and is so effective at shielding from the elements, that in terms of dryness, no other waterproof short I’ve tested comes anywhere close.
It isn’t cheap, but 7Mesh’s product ticks every box to justify the asking price.
