The OMM KamLite Hybrid Smock is a minimalist shell designed to meet the needs of the weight conscious runner combining the light-weight Halo fabric and stretchy and breathable Kamleika.
OMM design team’s latest development to make the most of the latest technologies and map them to the runner’s body to achieve the optimum combination of protection, breathability and weight saving. Designed to focus on those moving quickly in wet conditions, the Kamlite maximises comfort for the user while protecting against the elements and minimising weight. Venting is through double zippers on the front facing zip and thumb loops help to extend the jacket over gloves for additional protection. A bold choice for those who want the best and have a statement to make.
The OMM KamLite Hybrid Smock combines fabrics from their super light-weight Halo range and the more stretchy and breathable Kamleika to produce a minimalist waterproof shell designed to meet the needs of weight conscious runners.
The main body of the jacket is constructed using fabric from Halo with Kamleika in the arms. I was surprised Kamleika wasn't used in side panels where extra breathability and stretch is beneficial but this would add weight and cost. The Kamlite smock is very snug fitting, I was comfortable in my regular size over a base layer but there was little room for layering. Thumb loops help keep the the fit tight and reduces the chance of water getting in via the sleeves.There are 2 drawcord adjusters on the hem
The half zip is 2 way which helps with venting when your working hard. The hood is very large but can be cinched in. The hood has a wired brim to keep the rain off your face as you run (or walk, or ride).
