Paramo Mirada (2012)

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 the elements is superb and although the seams aren’t taped it will withstand very heavy rain, and breathability is unrivalled. It’s got an excellent hood, which is nicely shaped to accommodate your hair and locks down securely over your head. It comes with pit-zips for ventilation.
