THE ORIGINAL STRETCH SHELL

OMM invented stretch waterproofs a little over 20 years ago, 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 Technology builds upon decades of design and thorough testing in the harshest of races.

The Kamleika takes the athlete onto the mountain with a shell layer that protects from wind and rain whilst stretching to give freedom of movement and so aiding athletic performance. Highly breathable, lightweight and durable thanks to the 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.

MOUNTAIN SHELL

20 YEARS OF STRETCH

We released the world’s first stretch waterproof shell over twenty years ago and have been perfecting the technology ever since.
By combining the amazing 4-way mechanical stretch of the Nylon face fabric with the incredibly flexible membrane, we are able to create a waterproof fabric that moves with you, whilst offering a soft and silent touch completely unlike a traditional waterproof.
With the feel more like that of a lightweight softshell but with the protection of a fully membraned, seam-taped waterproof shell, the Kamleika range is in a class of its own.

FOUL WEATHER PROTECTION

Designed and tested to withstand the relentless conditions faced by OMM competitors. 20,000mm hydrostatic head and 20,000gsm/24hrs breathability with the added durability of windproof Nylon face fabric. 
Whilst the membrane works to keep moisture at bay, the Durable Water Repellancy (DWR) treatment on the face fabric acts as a first line of defence, holding precipitation on the surface of the garment, allowing the membrane beneath to breathe. 
This first line of defense can be easily renewed as part of your product care routine. Find out more below

TEMPERATURE & MOISTURE MANAGEMENT

37.5 Technology particles have been added to the Kamleika fabric to enhance vapour management and maintain a comfortable active temperature. During testing runners wearing Kamleika with 37.5 Technology were able to maintain a stable temperature and regulate internal moisture when switching between flat running and ascents.
The addition of 37.5 Technology broadens the range of output levels the runner can operate at whilst remaining comfortable, reducing stop-start to change layering as you work. 

CARE FOR YOUR KAMLEIKA

WHEN TO WASH
When to wash depends on how often and how hard you use your Kamleika. For heavy use (~twice weekly) we suggest washing every 10-12 days of use, for light activity every 20-30 days of use. Use your best judgment; if your garment looks dirty or your garment is no longer shedding water (beading) and is “wetting out”, it’s time to wash it. Take care of your gear and it will take care of you.

DWR (DURABLE WATER REPELLANCY)

DWR is a polymer applied to the face fabric. When the garment is not shedding water like it used to, even after it’s been washed and dried, it’s time to reapply the DWR. This can be washed in as part of cleaning or else applied in a spray. The application of heat helps bond the chemical treatment to the fibres, this can be done in a tumble dryer on LOW or else hung above a heat source.

VERSATILE PROTECTION

Kamleika fabric is not just used in our jackets and overtrousers. We have applied the benefits of stretch waterproofs to a range of clothing and accessories to provide the mountain runner with a complete solution to moving through bad weather.

We were one of the first to introduce the waterproof overshort, with the Kamleika Shorts, a simple concept that works to direct runoff from your waterproof jacket, away from key areas of friction, without relying on a full pair of overtrousers. We then developed this concept further to create a waterproof wrap which became the Kamleika Skirt a fully waterproof wraparound extension to your shell jacket, that provides essential protection without restriction to movement or breathability, that can be easily pulled on or off over layers as you respond to changing conditions. At the extremities, Kamleika’s soft and flexible properties are put to good use in the Kamleika Overmitt, allowing dexterity and sensitivity whilst providing a waterproof and windproof layer. Complete your suit of flexible armour with the Kamleika Cap, including stowaway ear protection for good measure.
