A durable jacket that gives you the weather protection, moisture management and temperature control to keep you comfortable in almost any climate.
To keep comfortable while mountain walking, you need efficient moisture control to prevent chilling, and good ventilation to reduce the need for clothing changes while you're carrying packs and using navigation equipment. Ideal for all walking activities to the highest level, the Paramo Alta III Jacket uses Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric for very effective weather protection and moisture management, with easy ventilation for temperature control, a reinforced back panel for pack carrying, and many other walker-friendly design features.
It's cut to be unrestrictive, protective and comfortable, with shoulder and arm articulation that allows for the maximum movement without the jacket riding up.
Nikwax Analogy fabric is not only very breathable, but also directional - it directs liquid water as well as water vapour to the outside, protecting your insulation (standard breathable membranes cannot transport liquid water, so if your sweat production exceeds moisture vapour transfer, condensation builds up, soaking your inner clothing, and leaving you cold). Nikwax Analogy garments work better for high activity, and in cold or humid conditions, removing all sweat and condensation. Another bonus is that Analogy fabric does not use a membrane or laminate layer to keep you dry, so it is soft and rustle-free (membranes or laminate waterproofs are often noisy and inflexible)
- Upper arm vents with mesh Pump Liner for temperature control on the move without water ingress
- Rapid-drying mesh Pump Liner reinforcement on shoulders and back..
- Six pockets: 2 handwarming pockets, ‘fast access’ chest pocket with D-ring attachment, large external map pocket, secure internal map-sized pocket and valuables pocket
- Precisely adjustable, wired-peak hood which stows in collar - works well with goggles or spectacles and gives a wide field of vision
- Two-way locking front zip (with poppered internal storm flap) allows for easy ventilation and access to inner layers
- Adjustable cuffs easily pushed up or rolled for cooling.
- Waist cord adjustment for precise fit
- Concealed cords and locks throughout improve water/ snow shedding
The Paramo Alta III Jacket has passed the Leeds University Rainroom Test, so you can wear it with confidence in heavy rain or in cold conditions throughout the year. Because the fabric system offers significant insulation, this is not the best garment to deal with heavy showers in very hot conditions.

Excellent jacket, 19 March 2017
By Richard (Derby)
I bought this jacket just before Christmas, I have worn it on walks in Germany and the Peak District, as well as for a weeks skiing, it has always kept me warm, comfortable, and dry. It was completely wind proof whilst I was skiing, the left hand inside pocket worked for my ski pass, and when I fell over and managed to get powder snow up my jacket, it moved the water outwards as soon as it melted and was dry within 30mins. I have a few minor things that could be improved with it, the sleeves are a little long for me which makes the vents a little hard to open when wearing heavy gloves, the hand warmer pockets end up under my backpack hip strap, and finally as I'm typically not using a helmet I would like a bit more ability to reduce the volume of the hood.
I strongly recommend this jacket for anyone looking for a comfortable, dependable, waterproof jacket.
GO Staff Recommended Product, 15 November 2016
By Wendy, GO Staff (Wakefield Store)
I bought this jacket as a present for my partner who is a dog walker. He absolutely loves it. It keeps him dry on the wettest of days and is very warm. Once wet it is very quick to dry. I have asked Santa for one of my own, fingers crossed!

Fits a tall man well, 01 May 2016
By YankeeHillWalker (Maine)
I'm 6'3" tall, was worried about the fit of this jacket, Its great, plenty of sleeve length to come over my gloves; and comes down half way over the seat area while standing. Now I'm praying for a heavy downpour so I can try it out in the rain. Really like the "non rustle" cloth.
