Páramo Enduro/Ventura (2014)

£350.00

FeaturesThere are four external chest pockets here, meaning there’s plenty of space for maps, compasses and hats or gloves between showers. Interestingly one of these pockets has a Velcro opening for ‘fast access’ says Páramo, while the others have zips. Zipped vents are also provided on the arms, and the helmet-compatible hood gets a wired peak with face and volume ...

Páramo Pasco/Andina (2103)

£220.00

The Pasco (men’s)/Andina (women’s) is a unique offering, being even more radical in design than most Páramo jackets. Like other Páramo garments it is built around the tried and trusted Nikwax Analogy fabric, which is extremely good at controlling condensation and keeping rain out when hillwalking. It is also quite warm, so in winter this is a benefit, while in ...

Paramo Quito (2013)

£220.00

There’s no doubting the Nikwax Analogy fabric wins in the breathability stakes – but this is offset by the fact that it’s a very warm jacket, and at a smidge under 500g, it’s not one you want to be carrying too often. This really means its best-suited for winter wear or for walkers who run cool. The warmth is mitigated ...

Paramo Mirada (2012)

£220.00

This one's extremely comfortable and noticeably lighter than other Páramo waterproof fabrics we’ve tested. It is so soft, quiet and flexible you’ll want to wear it all day, even if there’s no chance of rain. It’s cut fairly short at the front, with a scooped tail to protect the hips, and there’s plenty of length in the arms. Protection from ...

Páramo Alta II 2011

£235.00

The Alta II is one of Páramo’s most popular tops and it is probably one of the most well-proven jackets on the market as it has been around for years. It has a longer body than most, though it’s shorter than its predecessor the Alta. The fabric is more insulating than other jackets, which means it’s a good option in ...

Páramo Alta II 2010

£235.00

Páramo garments use a unique and well-proven fabric that offers unparalleled levels of condensation control. They can also be reproofed indefinitely and repaired easily if torn. In Trail rain room tests only Páramo jackets were shown not to leak. For winter they are a notch warmer than other jackets, so you don’t need to wear as many extra layers underneath. ...

Páramo Alta II 2009

£225.00

One of the most well-established waterproof jackets available, the Páramo Alta II has a broad fan base of users thanks to its unique features. The material is unlike any other, as it does not just repel water, it actively encourages it to move away from the body due to its animal-fur-like qualities. The fabric also has exceptional control of condensation. ...

Páramo Alta 2009

£200.00

The Páramo Alta is overshadowed by the Páramo Alta II, which at £220 is slightly shorter and also lighter. However the Alta is ideal if you really want a more protective design as it is the longest here so you can easily put your hands in your pockets and stay warmer and drier. Páramo garments also use a fabric that ...

Comfort-wise, it’s hard to knock the Cascada, which is cut from a wonderfully soft and rustle-free fabric making it a real pleasure to wear. Good breathability, making it really pleasant ...

£220.00

Páramo garments have one huge advantage over all other waterproofs, and that is that they have exceptional control of condensation, which means you stay dry both from rain and from sweat. The fabric is soft and rustle-free too, making it very comfortable to wear. Compared to most jackets here, the Páramo Alta II general-purpose jacket is also longer in the ...

Páramo Alta II

£220.00

A superb general-purpose waterproof jacket that is very popular, the Alta boasts a unique fabric that controls sweat better than most and yet keeps the wearer dry in heavy rain. It is a little warmer than most jackets, so you don’t have to wear or carry so many insulating layers across the hill. Ventilation at the top of the arms ...

Paramo Cascada

£180.00

This waterproof jacket from Paramo has a lovely relaxed, comfortable fit and the soft fabric feels more like another layer of clothing than a traditional waterproof. The body is long and the cut is generous, although drawcords at the hem and waist help get a decent fit. The stiffened hood is outstanding – coupled with the high collar, you can ...
