Páramo's NEW Vista Jacket, launching in Spring 2010 is the latest addition to Páramo's growing 'fast and light' range, using the new lightweight Analogy fabric. Intended specifically for high activity use, this close-fitting jacket in a simple, contoured design focuses on minimising weight, with no compromise on function - like all Analogy waterproofs, it combines excellent weather protection with Directionality, shifting perspiration and condensation away from you more effectively than any other waterproof we know. What's more the waterproofing is renewable indefinitely with Nikwax aftercare for years of comfortable use. 
If not worn, it can easily be stuffed into a day pack when out on an adventure, ready for action when needed. Like all Páramo waterproofs it is manufactured ethically in Colombia in partnership with the charitable Miquelina Foundation

Key features include:
Fully adjustable fixed hood featuring a wired peak.

Two way reversed zip for variable ventilation.
Articulated shoulders and sleeves for maximum movement.
Reflective piping to improve visibility.
Two zipped ‘dry’ chest pockets for handwarming or storage and i
nternal secure mesh pocket.
Adjustable cuffs so sleeves are easily pushed or rolled u
Scooped tail and hem drawcord for protection and temperature regulation.

RRP £199
