Odlo Goes Ninja For Winter
Hooded winter Ninja Shirt base layer looks spot on for savage winter conditions.
Posted: 6 September 2012
New for this winter 2012, Odlo's award-winning Ninja Shirt is an interesting looking winter base-layer top that incorporates a close-fitting hood with integrated face-mask designed to work with or without googles to give maximum facial protection.
Available in both men's and women's versions, the Ninja - no prizes for guessing why it's called that - is made from a synthetic - we think - high-wicking fabric complete with a proprietary silver-based anti-odour treatment called Effect and complete with a brushed inner surface and flat-locked seams for comfort.
There's that close-fitting integrated hood and, as you can see from the images, a face mask that covers the entire lower part of the face. It also features thumb-loops to seal the gap between your gloves and cuffs.
We've found this sort of close-fitting hood with facial protection ideal for use under a climbing or cycling helmet as an alternative to a balaclava in really cold winter conditions though an extra hood can be slightly distracting when not in use, particularly if you need to layer it under a waterproof shell.
The Odlo Ninja Shirt will retail for £60, in the shops shortly with more information at www.odlo.com.

I am trying to buy this is the Uk either in a store or online...without much luck. I'm looking for a mens in XXL.
Any one got any ideas?

Sure - get an independent store which holds Odlo stock as a matter of routine (plenty of those I think) and get them to order it in for you. If there's stock available then this should be possible.
If there isn't stock then there isn't XXL is perhaps unusual enough that there might not be any.
