Fast forwarding to the future of athletic apparel, Odlo have created this storm-proof Men’s LTTL Running Jacket as part of their core running collection. Your first defence against the elements, this lightweight windproof and water resistant zip jacket has been cut from a packable Pertex fabric that helps protect you from inclement weather without weighing you down.
Designed with laser-cut ventilation and functional features like an integrated iPhone pocket and ergonomic earphone loop, this slim fit running jacket is a modern shield that helps you stay connected and confident whatever the weather. Ideal for all-season wear, this practical design also features discreet reflective detailing for improved on-road visibility for low-light training conditions.
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.
