Paramo Merapi Active

£52.00

The first thing that makes the Merapis stand out against the other trousers in the test is the soft feeling of the fabric against the skin. Slipping into them, they feel incredibly comfortable, and lightweight too. That lightness makes them a good bet for warmer weather walking, as the air passes through well, and they are among the quickest drying. ...

Páramo Cascada

£100.00

Páramo’s best-selling trousers work a little differently to all other brands tested here. The Cascadas can be considered waterproof as their Nikwax Analogy fabric works to actively pump water (sweat included) from the inside to the outside. This means their heavier weight (528g) is more than made up for as you don’t having to carry waterproof trousers, which generally weigh ...

Páramo Maui Cargo Shorts

£45.00

These are extremely well-thought-out, rugged shorts that are lightweight and built for hill-walking and scrambling. Like everything from Páramo, they’re designed with moisture control in mind, using rapid-evaporation Parameta A fabric. These have plenty of secure pockets, jeans-style at the front (which may not appeal) and a variable hem. Made in VietnamUK stores 150(01892) 786444; www.paramo.co.uk

Páramo Cascada Trouser

£100.00

These featured in Trail’s waterproof trouser review too, but they are really soft shell trousers and so are ideal for use in any weather. Because of the nature of the fabric, and the design and construction, they will not only serve as really comfy, well-thought-out walking trousers but when it starts to rain they will also keep you dry and ...

Paramo Cascada

£100.00

These winter trousers from Paramo are a little long and baggy, but are incredibly comfortable next to the skin and lovely to move around in. A belt would be better than the drawcord adjuster, though. Not only really warm, but waterproof too, so they offer superb protection in bad weather. A little toasty for milder winter days perhaps, and not ...
