Odlo was founded in Oslo in 1946 as a manufacturer of women's lingerie and functional clothing for speed skaters. In 1986, the company's headquarters moved to Switzerland and developed a revolutionary system of sportswear based on the trammel principle. The first layer is designed for optimum absorption of sweat, the other regulates the user's temperature, while the third layer provides protection against wind, cold, and rain. The slogan of the company "Passion for Sports" clearly explains the brand's philosophy, which is all their users should enjoy their sporting activities to the maximum. Today Odlo is the leading manufacturer of multifunctional underwear, and clothes for cross-country skiing, running, cycling, hiking, and leisure.
