ODLO's performance apparel is designed in Switzerland from the inside out, iterating on an industry-defining approach to innovation pioneered by our founder, Odd Roar Lofterød Sr. A visionary in performance fabrics, Lofterød created the first elastic, heat-regulating suit for cross-country skiers and speed skaters worn by the entire Norwegian national team at the 1964 Olympics. In 1972 in Sapporo, 25 national teams wore another ODLO innovation – the ODLO Thermic - a legacy we've built on ever since.
We're proud of this heritage and today apply the same standards of performance to everything we create, using a dynamic design process to deliver pioneering high-performance apparel for everyday athletes wherever they choose to explore.

Part of a new generation of high-performance ski touring apparel, the X-Alp Performance Knit 3L jacket and pants are the pinnacle of our new ascent-inspired Performance Knit collection. These PFC-free waterproof and windproof jacket and pants are made of a knitted outer fabric that provides dynamic elasticity thanks to its innovative warp knitting construction, while a waterproof and highly breathable elastic membrane guarantees that you'll be protected from the elements. Optimal elasticity, mobility, lightness and packability and a striking body mapped design deliver a unique mountain look. Launches September 2023.
X-Alp Performance Wool 115 trail running t-shirt
Lighter, stronger and faster drying than traditional merino, the X-Alp Performance Wool 115 trail running t-shirt is a modern, high performance merino that's unlike any other.
Crafted from Performance Wool powered by Nuyarn® - a wool blend that amplifies merino’s natural performance properties - this tee is naturally temperature regulating (so it keeps you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cool) and naturally antimicrobial (which cuts down on scents). Sourced from non-mulesed merino wool, the fabric dries 5 times faster and is over 8 times more abrasion resistant than regular merino. Perfect for wearing with running packs or on long runs in the mountains.
Revelstoke Performance Wool base layers
Crafted for the mountain-minded among us, the Revelstoke Performance Wool Warm base layers are some of the most sophisticated, performance-specific merino pieces we've ever created. Made with Nuyarn® technology - a combination that amplifies merino’s natural performance properties - the Revelstoke is part of our Performance Wool collection. Products made with Nuyarn® are 5x faster drying, 50% stronger, and have 35% more loft, aeration, and lightness. The result is a lighter, stronger and faster drying merino than what's come before it. From ski tours to cold runs, these merino layers are every bit as performance-driven as you are.
Dual Dry waterproof insulated jacket
Recognised as the gold standard in featherlight, waterproof, insulated running jackets, and featuring sealed seams, a waterproof zipper and an adjustable run-fit hood - the Dual Dry waterproof insulated running jacket with OCTA insulation is a running jacket like no other. One of our best performing pieces specifically crafted for runners who are absolutely determined to make every kilometre count.
Active Everyday boxer
Showcasing the sustainable future of performance sportswear and part of our Eco collection, these boxers have been crafted from 82% recycled polyester offering fast-drying qualities and an improved carbon footprint. Cut with an active fit, each pair is designed to offer exceptional comfort with every wear, featuring a slim profile and a large elasticated waistband. Constructed with a panelled pouch, the ergonomic flatlock seams ensure added support, whilst the fast-drying fabric provides a breathable and lightweight composition – ensuring improved moisture management when you need it most.
Dual Dry waterproof jacket
Made using lightweight, waterproof fabrics, the Dual Dry waterproof jacket offers both comfort and protection during testing summer showers – allowing you to concentrate on producing your best. As stretchable as it is breathable, it keeps you feeling fresh and energised, improving your overall performance through superior moisture management. An athletic fit also ensures you don’t feel restricted, whilst an adjustable hood, chest pocket and reflective detailing add to all-round practicality. The Zeroweight Dual Dry jacket makes wet-weather running a whole lot easier.
I-Thermic base layer and mid layer
Showcasing the most advanced heating technology system available, our I-Thermic intelligent layers are crafted with seamlessly integrated thermal sensors woven into the soft knit fabric in the body zones most sensitive to the cold. Controlled via your smartphone, you can easily adapt the heat level via a slim clip-on rechargeable battery that sits neatly in its own integrated pocket. Available as both a mid layer and a base layer (both ISPO award winners), these are innovative layers that can be adjusted to suit the adventure, from summiting peaks to kicking back on the ski lift.
Active Spine base layer
Now evolved into the Active Spine 2.0 since its original ISPO win, our Active Spine 2.0 running t-shirt utilises market-leading biomechanical technology, and is designed to get you into better shape – literally. Supportive body-mapped functional zones around the spine and shoulders train your body to maintain a healthy, upright posture without compromising on mobility or comfort. This improved posture results in increased oxygen supply and faster muscle recovery times. Meanwhile, the lightweight fabric and extremely breathable Active Spine mesh fabric ensure perfect moisture management.
The Aeroskin racesuit was the most aerodynamic Nordic race suit of its time. It raised the bar of aerodynamics with precisely placed, two-layer material zones. The first layer increased air turbulence and reduced air resistance, while the second layer improved the aerodynamic properties of the first layer, and delivered a striking design.
Evolution windshield base layer
The Evolution windshield base layers delivered a new level of cold weather protection alongside advanced freedom of movement and ventilation.
Blackcomb base layer
An ISPO award-winner in 2015, the Blackcomb is one our iconic base layers. With multiple evolutions since its launch, it remains one of our best sellers. Now the Blackcomb Eco - it delivers ultimate performance while crafted from recycled materials. Providing optimal moisture management, freedom of movement and warmth with a seamless design, it's available in a range of styles designed for outdoor days when intensity is a given.
