Minimalism at its best with the Halo. Ultralight weight waterproof shell that is perfect for stashing in your pack and forgetting about it until you need it - then it does exactly what it needs to!
An ultra lightweight, breathable waterproof smock that packs down to the size of a tennis ball. Ideally suited to mixed conditions and constructed using minimal taped seams in a 2.5 layer waterproof fabric. The Halo also features closures designed to provide protection from the harsh UK mountain weather.
OMM's Halo Smock is a simple and effective racer shell. Weight is the key so there are no pockets, limited adjustments and no fancy features that will add weight. The jacket still has an elasticated hood and cuffs, thumb loops on the cuffs and simple adjustments on the hem. If you are only going to put this on to protect from the elements the lighter smock design works perfectly.
This jacket has taped seams, so it meets the mandatory kit list requirement, and is super light. It is not aimed as anything but a shell for throwing in your pack for trail and mountain races. It doesn't have the highest waterproof or breathability rating but for what it is used for it is spot on and it is significantly cheaper than the competition.
