Páramo Cascada (2013)

Páramo uses a unique fabric that is incredibly breathable while being able to keep the rain out when hillwalking. The Cascada trouser has thigh-length side zips so you can get them on easily over any boots. There’s also a press stud closure down the sides, so you can vent the trouser if needed. A single press stud at the ankle cuff provides some control of this area. The waist is elasticated and benefits from belt loops while the knees are articulated, which, when combined with the three leg length options, all adds up to a better fit. The fabric provides more insulation than other waterproof trousers, a bonus in cold weather.

The Páramo Cascada trousers are the best option for cold and wet weather in our review.
