A new concept in active insulation, the OMM Core Range is made entirely from PrimaLoft® ACTIVE ultra-light insulating fabric. Built from a synthetic plume woven through a knitted mesh, Core offers the warmth of a fleece but at less-than half the weight.
Paired with an overtrouser shell, the Core Tights are an incredibly effective insulator but thanks to near-total air permeability, excessive heat build easily dissipates. A true valley to summit piece. Core tights uses the 75g weight Core fabric providing extra warmth on wintery or long runs. Core works wet or dry with incredible wicking properties to ensure you won’t stay wet for long. Whilst panels of stretch nylon Flexile provide added protection with good wind and water resistance over the knees
PrimaLoft® ACTIVE Insulating Fabric weaves PrimaLoft® fibres onto a mesh, giving a super high volume and open structure. 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. Cover with a shell to create an incredibly warm system for cold weather adventures.
A single mesh fabric holds the insulation plume in place, reducing the need for extra fabric layers and halving the weight and pack size.
At OMM we always choose synthetic insulation over down to be sure that we can get warm even when everything is wet. We believe PrimaLoft® make the best synthetic insulation and so it is an easy choice for us. 75g/m2 PrimaLoft® ACTIVE uses 58% post-consumer recycled material, it is also bluesign and Oeke-Tex approved.
