On the track an athlete wears Lycra on the mountain a mountaineer wears a Gore-Tex Proshell. The 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 Kamleika is OMMs answer to this challenge. Updated for winter 2020 with a Nylon outer layer it is now more durable than ever.
OMM invented stretch waterproofs a little over 20 years ago and the Kamleika was the first waterproof to introduce true stretch. We’ve improved on the technology over the years to reduce weight improve breathability and add features but the formula has stayed the same. Now in its 5th generation the latest Kamleika builds upon decades of design and thorough testing in the harshest of races.
We released the world’s first stretch waterproof shell over twenty years ago and have been perfecting the technology ever since.
The Kamleika offers features normally the reserve of mountaineering shells, to give you confidence when moving up high in bad weather.
Kamleika is an institution for mountain runners and one that they carry with them to the Spine, Dragon’s Back, UTMB, Tor Des Géants and, of course, the OMM.
