The original stretch running waterproof - now with Nylon durability
On the track an athlete wears a Lycra on the mountain a mountaineer wears a Gore-Tex Proshell. 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 pant 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 fabric builds upon decades of design and thorough testing in the harshest of races.

WEVE PERFECTED STRETCH WATERPROOFS OVER 20 YEARS
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 an overtrouser so comfortable you ll find yourself looking for an excuse to wear them.
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.
DYNEEMA KICK GUARD LACE HOOKS
A Dyneema panel runs down the inside of the pant creating a kick guard when running in uneven terrain or winter. A knee length zip allows the pants to be taken on and off quickly. Lace hooks at the bottom of the zips help create a fitted closure around the shoe to stop debris getting in when running through bracken and heather.
KAMLEIKA HAS DONE IT ALL AND WON IT ALL
Kamleika is an institution for mountain runners and one that they carry with them to the Spine Dragons Back UTMB MDS OMM you name it. But by meeting the challenge in the toughest of races it is the perfect companion for daily life too.
