Lightweight, warm and available in a wide range of nine colours, the Women's Le Tour Pullover from Odlo is the perfect midlayer for long days out on the slopes or for participating in any number of outdoor activities. Brushed fabric features on both the inside and outside of Le Tour for a really soft and lightweight feel all over. Subtle on-shoulder branding and a half zip complete with chin guard collar keep your comfort and performance options stylishly open.
If you’re planning a long day on the mountains to really hone your ski or boarding technique, you needn’t worry about conditions holding you back, as Le Tour’s perfect package of thermal insulation will stand you in good stead whatever the winter throws at you. The super-fast drying material prevents any dampness from conditions sticking around, and internally the moisture management system wicks away sweat quickly to prevent this affecting your comfort and performance. Le Tour has got everything you’d expect from a great, stylish midlayer garment – flexibility, as well as all-day 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.
