I’ve owned a light wind shell forever. This type of jacket for me is mandatory to own. Ride up, get sweaty, put on shell ride down. Wear it to work on the morning commute, carry home when it’s warm. I’ll wear this 7Mesh jacket Nordic skiing too because it’s a mtb fit versus road fit and works well for that sport too. I have the previous version of this jacket without the straps but that’s ok because my frames are kind of small to strap a jacket on. I don’t use the hood often but it is amazing how much quicker I warm up just starting a ride with a hood up. Ten minutes along the hood goes down. And that one time 20 years ago when a hail storm came up and I was getting those tiny ice balls through my helmet vents revealed how a hood would have been useful. Ps. I’m going Nordic skiing today at Whistler Olympic Park. And you’re  not.
