Páramo designs are refined from exhaustive testing and come from talking to professionals who use kit outside all day, every day.
Our designs create garments that work harder for you - often fulfilling more than one function, and able to be worn comfortably for more of the time.
Our philosophy is to create classic style, working from real functional and practical advantages.
Páramo garments work well together - they're designed to be combined.
Our garment features excel in the field....
Hoods - that move with you, with wired peaks, minutely adjustable.
Ventilation - options to ventilate so you don't have to remove your garments to stay comfortable.
Pockets - in the sizes, shapes and places to be most useful and hold the things you need on the hill or in the field.
Articulation - to make movement easy and unrestrained.
Read on to hear professionals' views of Páramo:
"When you buy a jacket there is always some little niggly thing that you grow to tolerate.....Well, the other day I tried a Páramo jacket that is truly faultless. It is perfection personified and I am in love with it. I truly did not think that such jackets could exist."
Charlie Waite, Founder of Light & Land and the Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition
"As a farmer and TV presenter, I often wear my Velez ADventure Smock to keep me warm and dry. The variety of presenting for BBC's Countryfile can mean doing anything from walking in the Lake District to mountain biking in Glencoe or riding a horse across Exmoor. Whatever the event, one minute there is lots of activity, the next I'm standing around waiting for the next shot. Páramo jackets work brilliantly, to breathe when I am active, keep me warm when standing around and dry when the sky opens on me. Brilliant!"
Adam Henson, Cotswold Farm Park Limited
"I was delighted to discover Páramo, which is a one-stop shop for all my outdoor garments"
Mark Carwardine, Zoologiest and Wildlife Cameraman
"In recent tests by the Consumers Association, Páramo's Directional System outperformed all other waterproofs tested and, like me, the CA thinks it's the best waterproof out there."
Steve Dudley, Birdwatching Magazine
"My work as a freelance outdoor photographer takes me all over the world, from African deserts to polar icecaps. Páramo clothing gives me confidence that I will be comfortable whatever the conditions."
Ben Osborne, Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2007
