Ver­sa­tile run wear

220 Triathlon Magazine - - Kit Zone - MB odlo.com

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.
