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

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.

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.

Great purchase, 24 August 2014
By HB9867 (Coventry)
Bought this for a 2 week holiday in the Highlands, can't fault this top at all. Wore it on each day we had rain and it kept me dry and warm. This included a trek up Ben Wyvis in a gale with driving heavy rain and it never let me down.

Awesome, 18 August 2014
By Nigel B (Dorset)
I started with my first one about 15 months ago. I was so impressed at the comfort, quality and simple ability to keep me dry that I subsequently bought a second one, a size smaller, and recently a third in a brighter colour for cycling. This summer we took a cottage on Dartmoor for a week and the final day's walking (with a rucksac) was in continual rain/drizzle/dampness. No sign of water ingress at all. A couple of years ago I bought a "breathable" cycling jacket and after the cycle home in it, 6 miles up hill, it positively dripped sweat. Fortunately the shop gave me a refund. I tried the Paramo for the same cycle the following day, completely dry. These jackets are simply awesome. (No affiliation to the company.)

Like a Tea bag!!, 12 August 2014
By Pricey (Stockport)
I'm afraid to say that this jacket has been a massive let down for me. The first decent rainfall and my chest was wet and my armpits and it wasn't through sweat! It seems that the water runs off the shoulder and runs in the crease between your body and arm and then soaks through the fabric. The zip at the front also leaks water. I sent mine back to Paramo who sent my jacket back to me after 'testing' it and they said it was fine and they included a pouch of Nickwax for my troubles! I have washed this jacket in the Nickwax detergent and fabric waterproof liquid and i have also treated the zips with waterproof spray and to no avail, it still leaks. The only positive is that it is comfortable to wear (when not raining!) and is wind proof (but so are many other cheaper jackets). I have resorted back to my 15 year old North Face jacket which has served me well over the years. It has been far better perfomance wise in heavy rain. After wanting a Paramo jacket for years and splashing out some serious cash, i feel very let down. I will not be purchasing another one in future.
