A great smock that is perfect for high intensity activities in poor weather. With increase stretch, waterproofing and breathability the new Kamleika fabric is much improved and this has a big impact on comfort when you're out running for longer periods.
OMM says: Smock format stretch waterproof for maximum freedom of movement during performance mountain running.
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 Smock uses the new and improved Kamleika fabric which has become softer, stretchier and more comfortable with each new outing. It doesn't feel like a traditional waterproof shell, in fact, it doesn't feel waterproof at all. However, it is waterproof and it works really well with an increased level of breathability in this version.
It may be that you're looking to trim some extra grams or that you simply prefer the smock to the jacket but whatever your reasoning, this is a great waterproof shell. The zip is designed to be off centre with a chest pocket of a decent enough size off the the other side giving the design some balance. I prefer this as it means the zip isn't going straight into my chin and it does look good. Unlike the jacket the cuffs are elasticated with comfortable thumb loops integrated. The hood and hem are still adjustable with simple draw cords.
