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.

Ornot Longsleeve Jersey

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.

Ornot cap and socks

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.

Winter gear that’s not black? Must not be any good. Seriously, this is nice looking stuff. Kudos.

As I get older, I really dig the more subtle cycling clothing out there. This is a good example, so is Road Holland and the Giro New Road line.

Ha ha ha! Yeah, totally, just like Astana, don’t want to be a poseur!

I’ll stick with my BMC kit…errrrr red kit.
I’ll stick with my Cannondale kit….errrr green kit.
I’ll stick with my FDJ kit…I mean Etixx kit….errr….blue kit!
No, no I’ll stick with my Tinkoff kit, that is my yellow kit!!!
Ok, when all else fails, I can wear my SKY kit….I mean black!

Did I forget any other team colors?

Man I love these colors! And let me get this right…I can get a cold/wet weather kit that has SLEEVES for less than half the cost of a boring all-black Rapha kit, AND is made the USA? Customer service seems to be on point too! Uh, is this going to cause a rift in the Church of Rapha?! LOL!

Love seeing US made gear for a decent price. I hope the quality is up to snuff. I’d be ordering up now if I didn’t just get a lot of new gear

Very beautifully designed private-label Voler garments.

Top photo: no gloves or booties? Then that’s not a winter ride, not even close.

I guess I’m weird because that is some incredibly ugly clothing. I’m glad it’s not black because black clothing is boring (just like silver cars and beige houses). It makes sense that it would be ugly – SF has got to be the least fashionable big city in the world. People here (I live in SF) have no style at all. They also don’t know anything about cold weather so I wonder where these guys do their testing. Lake Tahoe maybe?

I’d love to buy local if I could afford it, but I wouldn’t where this stuff. Besides, for most rides in the big city you just don’t need fancy bike clothing. The thing people need right now in SF is fenders and they are too dumb to figure that out.

I own a bunch of their stuff an have holiday gift card in the wings waiting to be spent. Ornot makes insanely nice stuff for the money. Is it Rapha? No but I never thought Rapha was all that great and they are twice price of Ornot! simple well thought out designs are timeless! Donkey Label has also been a winner for me, priced right and made with tons of love. And of course Panache! Don’t be a rolling billboard like the commenter above!

ORNOT raised the bar for minimally branded cycling clothing while keeping prices realistic and quality a priority. I’m proud to have a major portion of my cycling wardrobe dedicated to this brand, with more on the way. Subtle yet elegant designs. Top notch customer service too! Cheers to Matt and company!

I rode six hours in the rain @ 50 degrees Fahrenheit with the guy in the photos. He wore all of the above plus gloves and booties and was warm, dry and stylish the whole time!

Way to go ornot!

I’ve bought this Ornot wind jacket several weeks ago.

Yes, this has many merits. Sky blue color is nice(for me, at least) and it’s size is true to the chart. This blocks chill winds well and mesh parts do their job excellently.

Two zippers are a little bit heavy. So while I ride with my jacket full opened, I feel like some weight hanging my body. But it’s nothing serious.

BUT I DON’T RECOMMEND THIS. The real problem is there are no protective fabrics inside the zipper line. The zippers(or the sharp and rigid parts of both lower end of zipper line) scratched my bibtights while I didn’t notice. And this jacket damaged my Assos and Santini bibtights. I’ve just bought one jacket and it spoiled my two expensive bibtights!!!

I have several jackets of other brands too. But this Ornot wind jacket is the only one that has no protective fabrics.

Maybe Ornot items have good designs and colors, And maybe their function is good too. But I think that Ornot doesn’t know some basics of making cycling apparels.

In addition, I have submitted a review like above 2~3 days ago with 2 star point out of 5. But They still don’t post mine. It seems like they are blocking some kind of bitter reviews.

So, I will not recommend Ornot wears to anybody. And I won’t buy Ornot items any more(This was my first purchase of Ornot product)
