More and more innovative knit technologies are conquering the sportswear industry: with the ODLO X-Alp Performance Knit 3L ski touring jacket and pants, ODLO is extending its expertise in seamless knit base layers to ski outerwear for the first time.
The PFC-free, waterproof and windproof combination of jacket and pants is the highlight of ODLO's new, ascent-inspired Performance Knit collection and consists of a knitted outer fabric that is extremely elastic in all directions thanks to its innovative knitting construction. The material is supported by a waterproof and highly breathable elastic membrane. Overall, the particularly quiet and soft hardshell material weighs only 120 grams per square meter and can be packed smaller than conventional hardshells.
The zoned functions knitted into the face fabric provide further weight reduction, enhanced breathability and, combined with an underlaid colored waterproof membrane, deliver a unique optic never before seen on the mountain.
The X-Alp PK 3L jacket and pants were designed to meet the specific needs of a growing group of ski tourers. They offer optimal elasticity, mobility, lightness and packability for long ascents, combined with full 3-layer protection for the ultimate descent or when the weather turns.
Fit, form and function are also suitable for many other winter sports, making the combination an extremely versatile winter sports performance garment. The outfit is available for men and women and will be launched in fall 2023.
