he Kamleika takes the athlete onto the mountain with a shell layer that protects from wind and rain while stretching to give freedom of movement and so aiding athletic performance. Highly breathable, lightweight and now even more durable in a new Nylon face fabric. Kamleika is the choice for people who have recognised that they may have to wear a waterproof all day and yet still head for the fells anyway. The Kamleika was and still is the original stretch running waterproof. Running in the mountains, in the rain throws up as many challenges for kit as it does for people. This is particularly true when designing a waterproof where a blend of properties must be achieved. We demand durability, comfort, stretch, weather protective features, low weight, waterproofness and breathability, all of which must be balanced in the perfect combination. The Kamlieka is OMMs answer to this challenge.
The fabric is the star in this jacket. We have been developing Kamleika stretch fabric for 20 years. It has unmatched amounts of stretch and breathability, creating a jacket so comfortable you’ll find yourself wearing it even when the forecast is clear and you’ll be wishing for rain. This was achieved by switching the normally woven face of a jacket for a knitted face, although challenges had to be overcome in allowing stretch in a membrane and bonding the two together.
