A hugely breathable waterproof hill walking jacket, designed to keep you comfortable in the most challenging conditions.

The Paramo Alta II is a lightweight jacket that's ideal for hill walkers who want to maintain their ideal comfort level without taking layers on or off.

When on the mountain, you need something that can keep you cool on the incline and cosy on the home run. With the Alta II's adjustable venting and temperature control, you can achieve just that.

In cooler periods, you'll appreciate the handwarming pockets and drawcord pulls to keep in heat, and when things start getting heated you can use the roll up sleeve function to ventilate yourself.

The rollaway hood provides the perfect mix of protection, and no-fuss packing to suit your needs and location.

  • Fully adjustable, wired, roll away hood
  • Maximum freedom of movement and increased comfort in the shoulder and arm area
  • Adjustable venting and temperature control
  • Increased comfort and protection when load carrying provided by reinforced, double layer shoulder construction
  • Two 'dry' handwarming pockets
  • Easily adjustable cuff design which allows sleeves to be pushed up for cooling
  • Additional temperature control provided by single-handed hem drawcord pulls
  • 2" drip skirt and scooped tail
  • OS map storage provided by one external, one internal dry map pocket

    Go Goretex, 28 March 2016
    By Bernie (Cumbria)
    Well an update for those who are interested in my first post. after another soggy weekend I have come to the end of any kind of 'relationship' with my paramo as i'm still getting very wet and have absolutely no faith in their waterproof clothing, fortunately due to young kids I am not up too high in the hills otherwise I would have given up well before now. my own personally experience is these are a complete waste of money

    Alta II, 20 February 2016
    By Bernie (Cumbria)
    Brought this jacket to replace a 20 year old GoreTex Sprayway. I was impressed with how warm it was compared to my old sprayway, didn't need a fleece jacket most of the time. Nice and long, being 6ft3 its hard to find a jacket that covers your bum so you don't get a draft up your back, but this one certainly does stop those drafts. Hood is very useful as well.
    Big complaint though is having owned this jacket for just over a year I am very disappointed in its wet performance. I have ended up wet across the lower chest and inner arms several times now, have sent back to Paramo using their lifetime repair facility, where they have "reproofed" it. however I can already feel the dampness starting again. My old Sprayway got reproofed about 5 times in its whole life, and only let me down at the end of its life, this however if not reproofed regularly and I mean every 4-6 weeks will get you wet. Living in the Lake District this is far from ideal and honestly if this jacket wasn't over a year old I would be taking back for a refund/exchange and replacing with Goretex again.

    Common sense efficiency, 06 February 2016
    By Wesmond (Lancaster)
    Stand in the rain all day (or watching your kids at footy) and you'll be softly snug, warm and dry. Take it out on the hills in the shedding rain under a rucksack and again, you'll be snug and dry. If you 'run hot', and sweaty, like me, after four or five hours there will be perspiration and damp inside. No more than the same walk without rain. If you sweat, you sweat. This is not a magical item that will thermoregulate your body and draw moisture into non existence. It does its job very efficiently. More efficiently and comfortably than ANY waterproof I've ever owned. The Britsh hills need this kind of jacket at present. Hood is magnificent. Massive, easy access map and compass pockets (not waterproof, deal with it). The arm vents are excellent.
    That is all.

    Best waterproof jacket I have ever owned, 28 January 2016
    By vaughaag (Devon)
    I have used Goretex for years, I've tried eVent jackets/trousers but they all leak eventually with seam tape failing or simply wetting out.

    The first time I tried my Alta, it poured down most of the day. We walked for about 20km and the jacket did eventually leak, what was different though was when it stopped raining, I started to dry out and by the time we made camp I was dry.

    I own two jackets and two trousers now with various tops. I will not buy another type of waterproof ever again.
