Stylish, tailored and multi-functional, the Blackcomb Evolution Warm women’s baselayer shirt worn next to the skin will keep you warm, protected and sweat free whatever ski or other activities you are undertaking in the great outdoors. Comfort across a wide range of body movements is fully assured through the use of seamless knitting technology whilst a number of clever ‘zones’, which feature different properties, and have been strategically incorporated into the design, optimise ventilation and provide superior moisture management.
If you’re out in the snow or cold for sustained periods this superior baselayer really comes into its own with its perfect thermal insulation providing a long-lasting barrier to the elements. What’s more, no matter how energetic you are, you don’t need to worry about sweat and the odours associated with it as the fabric contains Effect by Odlo – special odour inhibiting fibres woven into the fabric, combined with perfect breathability.
Design-wise, the Blackcomb Evolution Warm is sophisticated with a subtle weave pattern in magenta purple and black. It is also partially made from recycled materials, which means you are helping to protect the environment whilst you are out enjoying it.
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.
