This is a fair point, and even if it's considered ok for these trails, that may not be the viewer's perception. We'll make sure this is considered in our future films, thanks for the feedback.

Tech Week 2023: 7Mesh's Fall Apparel Collection
Hey there! Good question. We do see a greater number of rips on elbows and lower arms, but when you crash on a bike there are very few fabrics that can resist tearing without making the garment super bulky and heavy.  On our Gore-tex Pro Revelation jacket we do have pit zips and lower arm vents that you can use with one hand. On our Gore-tex Active jackets and Paclite we go for a less bulky and more packable option and omit the pit zips knowing that on the uphill you can open the centre front zipper if you need more breathability.

7mesh Launches WTV Collection
@vinay: Yes our crash policy and warranties are repair or replacement - we repair at our design facility in Squamish, and work with a couple of other repair centres also. On durability, WTV is solid, but honestly it's not particularly special in that regard. It's pretty hard to actually wreck a good stretch woven face. And when it does happen, the garment isn't what we'd be most worried about.

Sounds like you're a candidate for the vests! :) It's a stretch double-weave fabric rather than a knit, so the durability of the face is like other well made stretch wovens (think softshells or stretch jackets) rather than to knits / fleeces which are much less durable. Maybe the air perm construction will make it a bit more likely to snag on a thorn? But we think that would be pretty minimal. We've had riders testing iterations of this material for a long time and durability hasn't been any kind of issue. (If you do get unlucky: we have a crash replacement policy in the first month, and a discount program for replacements after that date.)

By the way, I hope none of these comments come across as anti-R1. R1 is solid, and Patagonia is one of the leaders with air permeable construction garments. We are optimizing for cycling fit and output, they are optimizing for outdoor, but both work well and the tech has good ability to cross over to multiple activities.

@granjak: (Keep in mind R1 is a series of fabrics, so this is generalizing.) The terminology is often intermixed, but think of it this way: Air permeability - to what extent it allows air to pass through the fabric. Breathability - to what extent it allows water vapour to pass through the fabric. Making the garment fully windproof would decrease air permeability, so all else being equal you will stay warmer. However, all else doesn't stay equal. It would also drastically reduce breathability, so becomes very clammy/sweaty, for sure we've all experienced this with many products. WTV works well because the lofty fabric traps heat, and introducing a (limited) amount of air perm allows enough air to circulate that a better balance is achieved. It's still pretty wind protective, but stays more comfortable. R1 has a similar intent.

@ratedgg13: The pieces shown here aren't the whole collection, check out the Seton Jersey which might meet your needs. Why a pullover? To provide options, because different riders prefer different things, and because we find this fabric better-suited than most to wearing throughout an entire ride. WTV fabric is lofty and not super packable, so it's not going to be your first pick in conditions where you're planning to take it on/off frequently, regardless of full zip vs pullover.

@sirbikealot: We're in agreement on principles, and/but we think context is also important, so we'll reach out to continue the conversation, thanks. One thing we'd like to leave here is that no, our naming was absolutely not about coolness, yes it was intentional, and yes there is context. But, also in our view, having good intentions is one consideration, but doesn't remove responsibility for the impacts of the actions we take.
