We have a hard time discussing the fabrics in 7mesh Industries' minimalist kits without the word sumptuous entering into the conversation at some point. Sure, it's a word that more readily brings to mind a rest day spent at the spa than a day in the saddle, but in this case, it fits. Brand new for this year, the G2 Jersey lives up to our expectations. It's built with an innovative, clean, and—yes—sumptuous construction that makes it a contender for quickly becoming a favorite training jersey.
Uncommon for top-end kit, the jersey achieves its contoured fit sans Lycra, relying instead on a custom asymmetrical weave and a springy blend of polyester and carbon knit fibers to follow your body movements while remaining light and dry. The asymmetrical weave also aids in the fabric's overall behavior over the course of a long ride, equipping it to adapt by stretching laterally when you're descending in your drops without stretching vertically. If you've ever experienced pocket stretch or bunching fabric as you move around in the saddle, this construction aims to directly limit that from happening.
We're happy to report that 7mesh took the same amount of care with the rest of the G2's design as it did with its innovative fabric, subtly integrating features like pocket guards and space for internal cable routing for headphone cords into the back of the jersey. Far different than the pocket protectors of old, the pocket guards in the G2 save you from spending your ride reaching back periodically to make sure keys and food haven't spilled out. For added storage space with more security, two zippered, horizontal pockets flank the three rear pockets.

Nice Jersey, Odd Fit for Me
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: L
The jersey itself is well made and has great features like the two zippered rear pockets. My issue was with fit. The body of the jersey was very tight while the arms were borderline loose. I definitely have found that I have broad shoulders and sometimes have issues with cycling jerseys. I don't think sizing up would do much here given the sleeves being borderline loose on me.
If it fits and you have a slim body, I'd recommend it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size

This was the second 7Mesh item I have purchased and I have been extremely impressed with the quality of their clothing. I have had the G2 jesrsey since August of 2016 and have worn it once or twice a week since. It has held up extremely well and maintained the fit like it were new. The fabrics and craftsmanship are top notch and I love the simple solid color designs. Great kit!
All of the tech, none of the flash

Really nice fit, fabric is different than most jerseys, runs true to size. Super comfy, and nice rubber waist band so it does not get all saggy. The salesman Sean was super helpful at helping me find this piece. I did not want something with logos all over it or too traditional roadie, but with all of the right features, including 2 zippered pockets. This jersey is the jam.
