Paramo velez adventure smock, 10 May 2017
By merx70 (Scottish borders)
What can I say but this IS the canines cajones. Paramo are fast becoming popular as people realize what an excellent product Paramo make. The jacket keeps you waterproof, warm (without sweating) and dry. It really is like a 2nd skin. If you are in any doubt-BUY A PARAMO, WHY? because if you buy ordinary goretex etc jackets then at some point you are guaranteed to be out in the middle of nowhere-soaking wet either from sweat or eventually rain. I live in Scotland and I have seen this 1st hand often. Yes the jacket is dear but then the 'other' high-end jackets are about the same price (and dearer) You will not regret using this jacket. One thing though, if you are new to the outdoor products always bear in mind that this jacket goes hand-in -hand with the NIKWAX techwash & TX direct for washing. It is no coincidence that the MRT around the Country wear Paramo for the toughest weather rescues. I DON'T work for PARAMO but I have been in this game a while and I have learned the hard way by scrimping on the cash for a decent jacket and it failing miserably.

Best coat ever, 10 December 2016
I had resisted a Paramo coat for years as I thought Gortex was supposedly the best. Well I was missing out. Got this smock last year and it's truly great. We had a miserable winter here on Dartmoor and I wore it most days initially for walking and casual use but it was so good I soon started using for my work which is outdoors. It has proved almost completely waterproof apart from one ridiculous walk in horizontal rain which may well have come in around my neck. Very comfortable and the most imported aspect is ability to breath. My previous Gortex coats were OK unless you were very active and then you would end up wet from sweat as they never seamed to breath enough but the Paramo does breath enough. Only complaint is the pouch pocket does get wet inside so don't leave your phone in there thinking it's safe. Wholeheartedly recommended.

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
