Paramo Mens Torres Activo Jacket
The new lighter weight synthetic insulated jacket from Paramo. A great finish and feel thought out, as you would expect from any Paramo garment. Designed as a standalone jacket or as part of a layering system for those really cold hill days or round the wild camp.
While there is lighter weight insulation on the market, this jacket is still certainly light weight, and compresses into the chest pocket for ease of stowage, (though we would always recommend a dry bag for on the hill storage). Been synthetic, it does not suffer as badly from water reducing the thermal insulation value will deal with your sweat far more efficiently. In addition, it dries out far faster when wet, again a key advantage over down. Easy to care for too, designed for frequent washing and easy drying. Down is a great insulation for its warmth to weight ratio, (if its good quality down), but it has a number of major drawbacks and is probably not that suitable for the wet UK environment.
Altogether a great new addition to Paramo’s insulation range and a great looking piece to boot!
-Fully insulated hood with semi stiffened peak. It will allow a low profile helmet underneath, (but always check to insure it will fit yours if this is a key function on your tick list).
-The sleeves have a new spiral seam cut to allow maximum movement while minimising excess fabric. However, if you have bulky arms, this will still probably not suit you. Again, trying on is the key here.
-Velcro cuffs with no elastic. Well designed and useable. Elastic might on paper appear to give a beater seal but tends to add ruffles the cuff, which can gather ice and snow.
-A double adjustable hem drawcord to allow a good seal to the bottom, maximising insulation as needed.
-Two generous map sixed, zipped pockets on the flanks. Positioned above the harness line. A well though out feature and something often miss-placed in insulative jackets.
-Large zipped secured internal pocket, which will accommodate the entire jacket for stowage, (which also has an internal hanging hook.
-Nikwax Analogy insulator fabric with 60g water replant synthetic fill.
-wash in Nikwax techwash and TX direct to maintain peak perfromance
