OMM Kamleika jacket review

Last updated: 30-Dec-19

By Alice Morrison

The OMM Kamleika is a mountain shell with excellent four way stretch so that it moves with you on the trails. It comes in both men’s and women’s specific and is a waterproof and a windproof that packs up really small.

There is a high level of design on the jacket  and a wealth of features.

Features

  • 4 Way stretch
  • Waterproof & breathable
  • Soft and quiet face fabric
  • Full length YKK® Aquaguard zip
  • Fully adjustable peaked hood
  • Reflective detail (sleeve, back)
  • Active Cuff
  • Dynamic Droptail
  • Two extra large hand/map pockets
  • Zip garage on all zips
  • Weight 225g
  • RRP £180

Let’s have a look at the jacket and its features and I’ll also let you know how it performed on the trails.

Conclusion

The great things about this jacket are its ability to move with you, its excellent features and attention to detail, its weight and its breathability.

Was I wet after 30+ minutes of heavy rain? I was damp, partly from sweat and partly because very little could withstand the drenching I got. Crucially, I was still warm.

This is a good jacket for a  day out in the mountains.
