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 Velez Adventure Light Smock (2012)

£200.00

This is the lightest of Páramo’s super-breathable waterproofs and there are soft shells on the market that feel clammier than this. It has superb weatherproofness when it does take a hammering, and the Nikwax Analogy fabric sheds water with ease, while the hood is deep, comfortable and boasts an adjustable wired peak. It’s best-suited to people who run cool or ...

Paramo Cambia (2012)

£36.00

This simple looking base-layer has a neat trick up its sleeve – it’s reversible. That’s not just useful for extending times between wash days: one side of the top is built for use in cooler conditions, one is better suited to warmer weather. The stitching on one side has a series of dimples that either traps heat when against the ...

Paramo Vista

£205.00

When walking hard uphill, the Vista really helps to pass sweat out through to the outside and prevent a build-up of moisture on the inside. In fact it doesn’t really feel like a traditional hard shell jacket, with a soft, loose touch. A bit too warm on hotter days, especially if you plan to throw it on in a summer ...

Paramo Cambia Zip Neck

£38.00

Unique because it’s reversible, you can wear the soft honeycomb face against your skin to trap ‘dry’ warmth; or wear the smooth surface next to your skin for a cooler option with excellent wicking. The only requirement is that you make your choice before you head for the hills! Both ways it feels incredibly comfortable and is very quick-drying. It’s ...

Paramo Quito

£199.00

A really comfortable jacket, and it boasts a great hood too; but at 490g it’s also heavy and not very packable. It’s an excellent all-rounder – warm enough and weatherproof enough for winter wear, yet just about light and packable enough to leave in a pack in better conditions. It is a bit warm for full-on summer weather, though, even ...

Paramo Fuera Windproof

£56.00

Best described as a trouser version of a windshirt – light, breathable and extremely windproof. Like a windshirt, they work superbly over a base-layer, keeping the cold wind out, while getting rid of any perspiration fast. They don’t feel particularly comfortable, though, and any cold in the wind is felt where the fabric presses against the leg. Water resistance is ...

Paramo Torres 2010

£100.00

The Torres’ are made from an insulated fabric that repels water rather than providing a hard barrier against it; and whilst this is waterproof, very breathable and extremely comfortable, it is sadly too warm for all-day wear (even with nothing beneath it), and also a little heavy and bulky for year-round emergency use. They have a unique belt and drop-front ...

Páramo Torres Gilet 2010

£75.00

The Torres Gilet can be used for layering over a Páramo waterproof garment or worn directly over a base layer. Either way it will deliver fast and light insulation to the torso without being weighed down by sleeves or a hood. DesignAs with all gilets there are no sleeves, and unlike other jackets here there is no hood either. The ...

Paramo Ladies Velez Adventure Light Smock

£190.00

If breathability is your biggest concern, the new, lightweight Velez could be for you. The fabric is almost rustle-free and so comfortable and breathable you’ll feel happy wearing it in almost any weather. The jacket offers excellent ease of movement, is totally waterproof and if you need extra ventilation two fully adjustable side zips provide a welcome flow of air. ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

The Analogy fabric felt wonderfully soft and comfortable against the skin, but not as stretchy as some and the drawcord waist was fiddly. Good waterproofing and breathable, too. But quite hot, even with the leg zips open, and also quite heavy and not as easy to move in as some.VITAL STATSColours: Navy, dark grey, forestSizes: S-XXL (five leg lengths)Fabric: Nikwax ...

Paramo Short Gaiters

£25.00

A shorter style that secures just above the ankle, giving a completely different look and feel. Cool, light and very comfortable. If grass/mud/water remains below the cuff they are wonderful, and so much lighter than most. Otherwise you’ll need something longer.Contact: 01892 786444, www.paramo.co.uk

Páramo Torres Smock

£100.00

This insulated jacket is the only smock we looked at, so if you have a preference for this style, it will certainly be a contender. It should also be considered if your normal hill-walking ensemble is the Páramo system, as the Torres smock is designed to work over other Páramo garments. Notable features include a fully adjustable hood with a ...

Páramo Torres Smock

£100.00

This duvet jacket has a generous body size, designed to be worn over another jacket; synthetic insulation; tunnel waist pocket; fixed hood; XS-XXL size range; medium level of insulation is ideal for UK; map-sized chest pocket; very durable fabric. But 838g is a bit heavy; sleeves tended to ride up a little; some may prefer a jacket to a smock.

Páramo Cascada Trouser

£100.00

These are not your conventional waterproof overtrousers, and you will not have to keep these packed in the bottom of your rucksack for emergencies. Because of the nature of the fabric, design and construction of these trousers, they will not only serve as a really comfortable, well-thought-out walking trouser but when it starts to rain they will also keep you ...

Páramo Cascada Pant

£100.00

These women’s walking trousers have an elasticated waist with drawcord and belt loops; very water-resistant and breathable fabric that feels great on; three quarter length leg ventilation zip; press stud ankle cuff adjustment; well-cut with an articulated knee; two zipped hip pockets. But rather bulky and heavy; most would also find them too warm for year-round use; fabric has no ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

These Paramo Cascada pants are incredibly comfortable against the skin, but may be too long and too baggy – meaning mud quickly works its way up the insides of the legs. There’s only a basic drawcord adjuster at the waist. These are effectively waterproof trousers however, with the breathability of normal pants, so they’re superb in bad weather. They’re too ...

Paramo Merapi Vent

£50.00

The wonderfully soft Parameta fabric makes these a dream to wear. However, with no stretch, the cut is a little tight for really strenuous movement. The waist is elasticated and they come with a good webbing belt. Loose in the leg and light, these perform well in warm conditions, where vents make things even more comfortable. They are a little ...
