Based in San Francisco, Ornot set out to make high quality products that were moderately priced, locally designed & produced, and not littered with branding or logos. All products come with a 1 year warranty, and they’ll exchange or take anything back that doesn’t fit or you just don’t like, and get this… they also offer their customers a discounted crash replacement should the inevitable happen!
Check out their full line of winter battle gear past the break…
For the coldest of days, Ornot’s Thermal Jacket is made from a 3 layer, water-resistant, wind proof, breathable material to shed what winter throws at you. Side panels are made of breathable 4-way stretch material to aid in fit and thermal regulation. I love jackets with pockets, and these look to hold quite a bit with a little “tail” to protect from any winter spray. It also has a high collar and dual directional zipper. Retail is $175.
One of the best accessories to own is a simple, packable wind jacket for when the ride ends or starts with a chill. The Wind Jacket 2.0 is constructed with ripstop fabric with mesh side and sleeve panels to keep things from getting too steamy. The Wind Jacket easily wads up like a small paper sack to fit in your jersey pocket. Retail is $130.
The Long Sleeve Jersey is constructed using Italian, micro-poly fabric with fleeced backing for retaining warmth. Great on its own, it is also what could be the central piece to the many combinations of layers you use to “tune” to the climate. Available in Grayskull (above), black, and White Hot. Retail is $130.
Speaking of layers, as a good vest for breaking through the wind, Ornot’s Wind Vest is made of the same ripstop material as their wind jacket, but with a mesh back for just the bare minimum of wind protection without heating you up. It’s available in Golden, (above), black, and high-vis… BLUE.
No winter wear is complete without at least one really nice set of leg and arm protection to keep your limbs warm. Ornot’s Thermal Knickers are made with a brushed, fleece lined dyed material as the dyed material does better at providing consistent compression and moisture wicking capabilities. By using dyed fabric, they are able to make the weight of the fabric heavier and by nature, it is more durable than standard lycra. The dyed material is also softer and stretchier than a poly lycra blend. Ornot chose to use the proven Cytech chamois with 4-way stretch to keep things comfy. Made of the same Fleece lined material as their arm warmers. Simple and functional, like their knickers, Ornot did a good job in making them look good in a subtle way.
Retail is $165 for the Thermal Knickers and $45 for the arm-warmers.
To top… and bottom things off, They offer a snazzy cotton cap (also available in black), for $25 and merino wool socks by Defeet made of their cold battling Wooleator material for $19.
