I-THERMIC – THE AWARD WINNING, INTELLIGENT HEATING SOLUTION WITH APP CONTROL
With I-Thermic, the intelligent thermal regulation technology, the days of cold layers of bulky clothing ruining outdoor adventures are no more. Odlo’s latest innovation was recently honoured with the 2019 CES Innovation Award and the ISPO Gold Award. Available as a midlayer, it analyses and regulates body heat using intelligent thermal sensors, which are seamlessly knit into the garment. Featuring the Organic Body Mapping concept, the heating elements are positioned in the abdominal and kidney area so that these sensitive zones retain their heat.
Unrivalled warmth – battery operated heated jacket for fishing, riding, watching the game or any activity where you have to remain stationary in the cold or rain for long periods of time. The shell makes full use of our waterproof/breathable Isotex 10,000 performance fabric with sealed seams and a DWR finish for all-weather protection. Inside slimline panels regulate your temperature with three heat settings (that you control), the panels are optimally placed around the back and chest to maintain core warmth with Thermoguard insulation to provide even further. Due to the wire construction, the jacket can be compressed easily and is machine washable.
ACTIVE SPINE LIGHT – IMPROVED POSTURE AND PERFORMANCE
This unique new base layer features the stabilising Active Spine Element on the back, which improves the athlete’s posture and directly impacts their performance and wellbeing. When wearing the Active Spine, the upper body is held erect and the shoulders pulled back. This stretches the spine and expands the chest, which in turn facilitates breathing and oxygen intake, reduces muscle vibration and simultaneously provides the upper body with additional stability. This prevents the all-too-common back pain and takes pressure off the intervertebral discs.
The Active Spine Light Shirts are ideal for running, team sports, CrossFit or simply for everyday wear.
TALUS PRIMALOFT GOLD – PRIMALOFT HAS GONE ECO NOW
Features a fantastic active fit with high stretch panels for dynamic movement
