If you’re not one for heavy, restricting jackets when hitting the mountains or out in extreme weather conditions, the Revolution X-Warm turtleneck base layer shirt for men gives you maximum warmth and protection without the need for too many bulky outer layers.
Like most of Odlo’s base layers, you can expect excellent thermal insulation, and with half zip turtleneck design you can choose just how much heat you want to keep in. This garment works hard to protect the wearer with strategically placed extra warming, padded zones around key muscle groups, which helps keeping them at optimum temperature when performing - weaving your way down the slopes or taking on the challenges of the great outdoors.
Available in navy or black, the base layer looks smart and well fitted; meaning if you want to take your outer layers off you’ll look slick on the slopes with the shirt on show. In addition to this the soft fabric prevents itching. The Revolution X-Warm with turtleneck takes the base layer to a new level, meaning you can focus on taking your skiing and outdoors activities to the next level in complete warmth and comfort.
As the inventor of the three-layer principle, Odlo is a brand synonymous with high quality technical baselayers and sports underwear. The Norwegian company combines typically Scandinavian, minimalist design with cutting edge technologies to produce stylish and functional apparel across six categories: technical underwear, running, training, cycling, Nordic disciplines and outdoor.
Odlo was founded in 1946 by the eccentric, and brilliantly named, Odd Roar Lofterød. Lofterød began by manufacturing lady’s underwear, but soon began to produce sports training kit as demand for his garments grew. In 1963, now under the banner of Odlo, Lofterød developed a revolutionary new suit for skiers and speed skaters, made from a cutting edge synthetic fibre which gave the fabric an elasticity and fit unlike anything else on the market at the time. The suit was adopted by the Norwegian ski team for the 1964 Winter Games in Innsbruck and by the time the Winter Olympics in Sapporo came around in 1972, there were 22 national teams competing in Odlo gear.
Today, Odlo’s is a firmly established active sportswear company and their three-layer principle has been adopted industry wide. The first layer, the underwear, is designed to ensure optimum moisture management. The second layer helps to regulate the wearer's temperature, while the third layer provides protection from wind and rain.
