Páramo Enduro/Ventura (2013)

£350.00

The Páramo Enduro (men’s)/Ventura (women’s) is a new jacket that features stretch Analogy fabric to allow it to have a closer, ‘athletic’ fit. The stretch fabric is situated across the shoulders, down the inside of the sleeves and down the sides of the body. Previously Páramo garments have generally been quite loose, so you may or may not like this ...

Páramo Aspira (2012)

£290.00

The Páramo Aspira offers a highly durable, warmer, sometimes comfier alternative to the norm. Nikwax Analogy fabric actively pumps water away from the skin, through the material and out the other side. At 835g (size UK12) it is twice the weight of the average jacket here, but the Aspira is longer and has a similar amount of insulation to your ...

Paramo Velez Adventure Smock

£200.00

Uses Nikwax Analogy waterproofing and works in a similar way to animal fur, driving moisture out and away from the skin. The waterproofing is handled by a DWR coating on the face fabric. The coating retained its water repellence for a longer period than expected, and only really started to wet out in high abrasion areas around the back and ...

Páramo Aspira Jacket 2011

£290.00

The Páramo Aspira comes in a jacket and smock version, and both are particularly good for cold mountain trips. The unique fabric manages to force water out faster than it can get in through the jacket. In Trail rain room tests conducted at the University of Leeds, we found that Páramo garments were the only ones that kept out water, ...

Páramo Aspira Smock 2010

£275.00

The Páramo Aspira comes as a jacket and smock, and both are great choices for winter. The smock is particularly good for use with a harness as the design is less cluttered around the waist. There is still a long front double zip though, so you can vent the jacket easily from the top or bottom while wearing a harness. ...

Páramo Torres Overlayering Insulation (Sleeves & Trousers) 2009

£55.00

“Brrrr! Nice view, but I’m cold and wet, and I need to keep moving to stay warm.” How many times have you said that, having sweated your way up a mountain? When you’re cold and wet it’s hard to enjoy even the best mountain views. The problem is that most clothing systems are not designed to keep you warm when ...

PARAMO ALTA II

£220.00

Review: The Paramo Analogy fabric works by repelling water from the outside, in a similar way to an animal’s fur; while the inner lining draws perspiration and expels it. As a result this is a very breathable jacket and the membrane-free, non-rustly fabric is also very comfortable. The Alta II is very well-featured, with a superb hood, featuring a wired ...

Páramo Aspira Jacket 2008

£250.00

The Páramo Aspira Jacket controls condensation better than most alternatives due to its unique fabric, which also remains waterproof indefinitely if treated with Nikwax, unlike conventional waterproofs that leak if punctured. It’s also warmer than most jackets, making it ideal for winter. The material works really well at keeping out driving rain and the jacket is longer than most, so ...
