Páramo's new line launch
Our faithful friends at Páramo are launching new jackets and new baselayers this winter and early spring to wrap up the extreme walkers and shield the adventure go-getters
Key new products include the Andina and Pasco jackets, with high-quality ventilation for the serious walkers, and the Tula and Helki jackets, which will serve as every day companions as well as being a good accomplice for a hill trek. These four jackets all combine unique Analogy waterproof performance with new styling and features for looking good as well as for comfort.
Páramo is also introducing a new improved Parameta fabric – Parameta T+. This fabric is said to provide all the advantages of wicking and reversibility of Parameta T but with increased robustness and staying power. The proven designs of Cambia baselayers will move across to this new fabric in the New Year.
New Analogy Waterproofs
Ladies’ Andina Jacket – a feminine walking jacket with style for walkers and backpackers who enjoy demanding levels of activity, be it tough walking or working hard outdoors. The Andina follows on the success of the lightweight female-friendly Mirada Jacket, but uses standard Analogy fabric for hard-wearing protection from the weather combined with effective removal of perspiration so you can arrive fresh and sweat-free at the top of that climb!
The Andina offers the same very generous ventilation via sleeve and torso vents, the front zip, and the sleeves can be easily pushed up. Its feminine shape, reduced rustling and soft feel plus hair-friendly hood make it a key contender among women’s jackets - arrive at the pub after a hard day’s trek and still look good.
Men’s Pasco Jacket
This is an intelligently ventilated jacket, designed for demanding walks and backpacking trips, as it offers swift and significant temperature adjustment while on the move via the generous sleeve and torso vents. The Nikwax Analogy fabric is durable and effective both at keeping out the weather and removing perspiration from the clothing system.
Both the Pasco and the Andina use Páramo’s new mesh Pump Liner on the shoulders and back to provide extra protection when load carrying or in heavy rain, with reduced weight. They also offer two hand-warming pockets and an OS map pocket for those chillier days.
Ladies’ Tula Jacket
This jacket is said to be a versatile, hard-wearing, long-line jacket for on and off the hill. The clean lines allow freedom of movement with minimal clutter, the mid-thigh length gives cover without being restrictive and still looks sporty. The use of hidden cords and cordlocks improve water and snow shedding.
Men’s Helki Jacket
A no-nonsense jacket for all hill and valley activities, with all the advantages of Analogy performance, the Helki is suitable for a number of outdoor activities thanks to its ergonomic design for freedom of movement.
Both the Helki and the Tula work well over either baselayers or mid-layers as required, with careful shoulder and arm articulation, meaning the wearer benefits from the freedom of movement without excess fabric, and avoids the jacket pulling or riding up. On both, the stow-away hood with a firm, shape-able peak provides a precise fit with or without a hat and should not compromise vision. It is said to be particularly well-designed for those who wear glasses. Both provide rucksack-friendly pockets for a map, valuables and for hand-warming.
New Parameta T+ fabric baselayers
The popular Cambia baselayers are moving to a new improved fabric from the New Year. Parameta T+, like its predecessor, is a high wicking fabric; through its reversibility it is able to provide the choice of two levels of cooling depending on which fabric face is worn next to the skin – the smooth face keeps you cool, while the honeycomb face next to skin holds moisture away from the skin for less cooling. The new fabric has been developed to be more durable and robust, better able to withstand whatever outdoor adventure users throw at it.
New Parameta G fabric baselayer legwear: Men’s Grid Long Johns and Ladies’ Grid Long Janes
The new Parameta G temperature control fabric is now available in legwear, suitable for extra insulation under Directional waterproof or windproof trousers. Stretchy and soft, these Long Johns/ Janes provide warmth without weight or bulk. The fabric is designed to effectively draw moisture away from the skin. The simple design has flat seams and broad, gentle elastic at the waist for comfort. This Grid legwear complements the Grid Technic and Classic baselayer tops launched in the spring 2012. They also make great sleepwear for expeditions and camping.
