Paramo pajaro, 01 April 2016
By Andyd (St. Helens)
After being swayed by an outdoor magazine survey and assuming price means quality, which might apply to beer doesnt apply to outdoor jackets.
I must add I had never come across such an amazing feeling fabric either, like parachute silk.
It has some awful flaws though, it failed to keep water out and always has done, anything in your pockets that are porous will end up damp such as paper, matches etc. Take the front lower pockets, if the flaps are not press studded down or otherwise not aligned they become water storage devices and will flood, the majority of which seeps backwards onto your pants through the lining.
Chest pockets fare better but still, anything like paper will get damp sometimes depending on rainfall duration etc.
The biggest shock was when wearing the coat 'down' I.e full length and not turned up into a shorter coat using the cords, so it passes over your upper thighs, what haappens is in torrential rain, liquid is passes straight onto your trousers and drenches them very quickly, fine if your trousers are waterproof but a game changer in anything else. I have nnever seen this in any longer jacket before to this degree! I keep itup now, I actually saw a couple wales wearing them up to the waist and I soon saw why.
Mine leaked small but significantly, enough to we thet next layer of clothing in patches.
The hood, centre back, shoulders, waist regularly allow water in, enough to annoy when jackets of a quarter the price outperform in the wet, my ten year old North Face Haven't which is in bits is at least still as waterproof as the Pajaro.
The water issue occurred before the coat was ever washed, it's always been leaky.
The good points are many though, I would recommend it and I love mine, it's the coolest coat out there.
The chest pockets will fit a carrier bag of shopping including a cooked chicken and 2x2L bottles of coke. They are vast and make up a side each of most of the front!
Theatrics silent, even bending arms there is barely a whisper from the microfibre fabric.
The hood is great, adjustable forwards and back or sideways by manipulating the cords and the collar joins perfectly around it, tweak the front visor and is ready for any head even one wearing a helmet.
There are durable rubber wrist adjustments with Velcro, this is beginning to wear over the stitching after 5 years almost continuous use but still sound. Very little has worn out really.
It dries quick, and it's lightweight.
Luckily it's durable but paramo seemed think it's better to 'pump' liquid out rather than prevent it's ingress, unfortunately it can't pump fast enough.
All this is based on many years with same Pajaro coat.hoever I wouldn't risk another because it failed in the wet. Andy
Lacks Quality which is the sum of the parts, 16 February 2016
By Sweaty feet (Silkstone common)
This jacket looks the part. Used for 10 weeks almost daily and in some HEAVY down pours, with great comfort and dryness.
HOWEVER, quality of components NOT robust. Hood pull cord adjusted snapped off. Leaving hood covering eyes, when its wet and wild. Returned to Go Outdoors for them to send off and assess unto 28 days! Lets see.....think twice about how you will use this coat. Not convinced they are robust.
Owned for 3 yrs, 29 January 2016

I've just looked up the Go Outdoors receipt for my jacket to find out how long I've had it . 3 yrs! It's never let me down, always waterproof and wind proof. I've washed and reproofed with NikWax a few times.
Something you should know. As a birder and a dog walker, I'm out in all weathers and places. This jacket material is amazing. It looks nothing much but out on the Down struggling through bracken and brambles, the material has never ripped or torn or shown signs of snagging despite getting caught in bramble thorns every now and then. I've often thought "Oh Oh! That's torn it" But it hasn't.!!
The hood is very good. Stays in place and turns with your head.
I could have done with a couple more pockets but there are 5 in all, two of which are quite deep to stow stuff.
This is the sort of jacket that you may get warm in but not sweat up. Two sleeve vents also help you keep cool. Just wear a T under.
I paid over 200 3 years ago and I would buy it again.
Buy if you are not just buying to pose in but are a true outdoors person.
High maintenance jacket, 01 March 2015
By Jimmy2Faces (Inverness)
Im a wildlife photographer in the Cairngorms and push this jacket hard.
It started off great. Nice fit, lots of pockets and kept me dry.
However the jacket now needs almost weekly reproofing and is not waterproof for long. Several of the zips also are no longer functional.
Would not recommend
