Ultralight valley-to-summit PRIMALOFT® ACTIVE Insulation hoodie
A new concept in active insulation, the OMM Core Range is made entirely from PRIMALOFT® ACTIVE insulating fabric. Built from a synthetic plume woven through a knitted mesh, Core offers the warmth of a fleece but less-than half the weight. Paired with a shell, the Core is an incredibly effective insulator but, thanks to near-total air permeability, excessive heat build up easily dissipates. A true valley to summit piece. The Core+ Hoodie uses the 125g thicker weight of OMM’s two Core fabrics. Core works wet or dry with incredible wicking properties to ensure you won’t stay wet for long.

PRIMALOFT® ACTIVE Insulating Fabric weaves PRIMALOFT® fibres onto a mesh giving a very high volume but open loft. Fabrics insulate by trapping pockets of air that the wearer’s heat cannot pass through. Core structure is exceptional at creating these pockets. However, the openness also allows for a light breeze to disturb these air pockets and remove the insulation effect. Core uses this to its advantage; put a light shell on over the top for the best possible warmth to weight layer and then when you get too hot, adjust/remove only the shell and you can keep pushing hard to the summit without a bulky layer to stash.
MINIMAL WEIGHT & PACK SIZE
By using a single mesh fabric to hold the insulation plume in place, we have reduced the need for extra fabric layers thereby drastically reducing the weight and pack size, compared to a traditional insulation layer.
WARM WHATEVER THE WEATHER
With fantastic thermal properties, even when wet and fantastic next to skin comfort; PRIMALOFT® ACTIVE also uses 64% recycled material and is Bluesign and Oeke-Tex approved, meaning you feel good on the inside, too.
