ODLO VELOCITY ELEMENT
Versatile run wear
Odlo have carved themselves as a top draw performer with style to boot. The Velocity Element run jacket ticks off some performance boxes, but falls short on style, looking like something our mum wore in 1978. Overall, it’s an odd mid/outer layer hybrid that we’ve worn for mid-to-single-digit runs due to impressive breathability and the windstopping prowess of the front outer shell. The seamless build is chafe-free and the duo of pockets easily accessible. But how much would we use it? Given it mostly lacks water resistance and huge warmth, we’re likely to stick to a specialist waterproofing or warmer jacket for inclement conditions.
