Features

A ultra breathable waterproof smock designed for trek, travel and active pursuits in all weather conditions.

The Paramo Velez Adventure Light Mens' Smock provides all the multi-activity features you require, whatever your activity and whatever the climate.

Freedom of movement is key for the Velez, and using innovative Nikwax Analogy Light fabric that gives full Directional waterproof and windproof performance, as well as fully articulated shoulders and elbows, this jacket should feel like a second skin.

Designed with great attention to detail, the Velez comprises a cropped front, drop tail and high collar design- all allowing maximum protection. All the features are adjustable to prevent any rain, snow of sleet entering the jacket- and you also get a tailored fit.

Other details include the rollaway hood, bite tabs and various pockets- all designed to keep you and your essentials dry and warm, so wether you're reaching for a snack or a photo snap,or even a map- you can be assured that it's just a zip away from you.

Paramo needs to redesign front zip, 08 June 2015
By Jon (Lichfield)
Being happy with my previous Paramo, I thought I'd try a slightly lighter version

This is a very breathable & comfortable jacket that fits well, doesn't rustle and keeps you sweat free even under hard effort (I run ultra marathons)

Initially it seemed to perform very well, even in very heavy rain on the Pennines, however all is not well.

As mentioned in someone else's post, the front zip is not waterproof. It has a design flaw in that it requires a flap to deflect rain (or perhaps a proper waterproof zip?). Additionally the water seems to run down the zip & soaks the front of your chest (hood fully zipped up)

Having been a previous Paramo owner, I know how to wash & re-proof them with nikwax (besides I only used the jacket twice, so shouldn't have required it). Despite explaining the design flaw, Paramo insist that it is returned back to them where it was re-proofed...

Clearly this made no difference & it still soaked my chest. Fortunately when I returned it the second time I took along a photo showing my soaked t-shirt. Shame I had to make two trips to get a refund.

Hopefully Paramo will fix this with a revised version, upon which I would give it another go

superb, 31 May 2015
By henry (uk)
i have had many event/gore tex jackets over the years but i decided to try out paramo after reading lots of reviews,I have been very impressed so far.very comfortable and kept me dry in some pretty heavy persistent rain in the Scottish Highlands.what impressed me most was the breathability! my friend had a new gore tex jacket on whilst I had my paramo on.after a 3 hrs of hard hill walkin in rain his jacket had kept the rain out but was soaked inside with sweat/condensation whist I was bone dry....paramo really works

THE waterproof Jacket, 12 January 2015
By LiamParry (Snowdonia)
I have owned various paramo garments for over 4 years now, i wear my kit day in day out as i work as an outdoor instructor, therefore my kit is always always under pressure and this jacket for 4 years has never let me down, all the mountain guides and mountain rescue operatives i know all swear by paramo and that itself is enough reassurance for most people i would not recomend anything other than paramo!!

Not Paramo's best, 05 October 2014
By Sulphonamide (Scotland)
I'm a big Paramo fan (love my Aspira, to the point of even lugging its weight on high altitude climbs), but have finally had to conclude that the VAL is just not good enough. It is generally accepted that Paramo is meant to keep you comfortable rather than dry...but yesterday that was definitely not the case. When the temp is about 7 degrees, you have had 2 hours of fairly constant rain, but your water repellent trousers are holding up fine, you should not have soaked forearms and be cold enough to need a thick belay jacket (ironically the Torres sleeves and core - sleeves required thereafter to cover the wet AND unpleasantly cold VAL. It has seen modest use for 6 months and really should not be leaking already and in need of a re-proof? There are some things I do really like about the VAL - comfortable, rustle free, the big pouch pocket sitting conveniently between waist and chest strap - but the material looks very cheap and nasty, it lacks the superb pit-zips of the Aspira and, in spite of the name, it is still much heavier than a gore-tex. I am hoping that after a re-proof it will serve reasonably well, but I don't think it can be ever trusted to keep me comfortable in such circumstances wherein getting cold could be dangerous.

Just perfect., 27 August 2014
By Maggie (Brecon Beacons)
I have the female version of the Velez. Spent 5 hours in persistent heavy rain on Bank Holiday Monday. Absolutely dry as a bone after. Worth every penny, a very versatile waterproof.
