A must have for fell and mountain running. Improved fabrics, resulting in improved performance mean that the new Kamleika pants offer even more now. The new fabric provides more stretch, greater waterproof protection and improved breathability without losing the great features.
OMM says: Stretch waterproof pant for maximum freedom of movement during sport.
Kamleika Pants are designed for running in the mountains, tough dyneema panels on the inside of the legs reduce damage from running through heather and brambles.
Kamleika's unique blend of stretch, low weight with waterproof performance has been at the core of OMM clothing range for 10 years. AW17 will see the 3rd iteration of the Kamleika range with 37.5 technology improving breathability by 300%, enhanced shaping throughout and award winning features. These enhancements keep the Kamleika as the top choice for runners who embrace running in extreme conditions.
OMM's Kamleika Pant uses the new and improved Kamleika fabric which has become softer, stretchier and more comfortable with each new outing. It doesn't feel like traditional waterproof shell pants, in fact, the material doesn't feel waterproof at all. However, it is waterproof and it works really well with an increased level of breathability in this version.
This is a well designed piece. They may not be ultralight in comparison to some of the more basic race pants but they are much more durable, have a number of excellent features and will be able to cope with the harshest conditions you are likely to encounter on the hills and mountains. A further, considerable weight reduction in this model is a massive bonus since the adjustable belt, foot bungees, durable Dyneema zip panels with lace hooks have all been kept.
