Cambia Briefs are for active outdoor people who do energetic activities.

If you participate in high energy activities such as cycling, running, climbing or mountain walking, you need to manage the sweat you produce to stay dry and comfortable. Damp underwear, especially cotton, is clingy and restrictive, and will make you feel cold when you stop moving.

The fast-wicking, directional Parameta T+ fabric rapidly transports moisture away from the body to keep you dry and comfortable. The briefs’ design and construction makes them easy to move in without restriction.

Cambia Briefs have flat seams and stretch for comfort.

  • Freedom of movement provided by a contoured, yet stretchy design.
  • Flat seams prevent rubbing and irritation during exercise.

Parameta® T+’s fast wicking gives it exceptional comfort for underwear.

Parameta T+ FabricIt is a rapid-drying, directional fabric that spreads moisture laterally to speed up evaporation of perspiration.

The textured, open face fabric surface is worn next to your skin, directing water away so you feel dry, but still evaporating excess water effectively.

Choose Cambia Briefs because of their efficient moisture management next to the skin...

The Cambia Briefs use high-wicking Parameta T+ fabric to create the perfect base for your directional clothing system. Moisture is continually directed away from the body to be picked up and transported outwards by your outer directional layers. The fast-drying, stretchy briefs are constructed with flat seams to give optimum comfort and freedom of movement.

You can expect excellent wicking performance and a high level of comfort from the Cambia Briefs.

How will your Páramo® underwear outperform other underwear?

Cotton underwear will hang onto moisture and you will potentially feel uncomfortably cold and damp from perspiration during and after activity.

Most other technical underwear products only move moisture laterally across the fabric and don’t move it from one fabric face to the other, so won’t push moisture away from your body and as a result you’ll feel colder and less comfortable.

Páramo’s Parameta T+ underwear will give you greater comfort, keeping moisture away from your body when you need to stay dry.

  1. Complete freedom of movement from stretchy Parameta T+ fabric.
  2. Rapid wicking and drying material keep you dry and comfortable.
  3. Flat seams and wide elastic for utmost comfort.

What users say...

“I can't say that I've ever reviewed underwear before but... Again, these were a real success on safari and as well as being a comfortable fit, not once did I ever feel sweaty. Brilliant!”

N.R, Essex

“My partner and I have just returned from a motorbike trip around France, taking in the Pyrenees and the Alps. Two up on a motorbike with a tent and all camping gear didn't leave much room for clothes. We therefore limited ourselves to 2 pairs of underwear each (one pair on and one pair in the wash). We did our research carefully as we wanted very quick drying items and therefore invested in 2 pairs of Cambia briefs each. Success, at no point in the trip did we find ourselves let down. Not cheap but a great investment.”

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Cambia Briefs?

The Cambia Briefs can be used in any weather conditions, thanks to the nature of the Parameta T+ fabric.

In hot conditions, the fast wicking properties aid evaporation of sweat to provide cooling.

In cold conditions, when you’re wearing more layers, any liquid sweat or condensation is directed away from your body to protect your insulating air layer.

Which garments should I use with my Parameta® T+ underwear to get optimum performance?

The Parameta T+ fabric makes it an ideal base for your directional clothing system. It will allow your directional Parameta A or Parameta G baselayers to manage any perspiration generated during your outdoor activities, which in turn can be directed away by your chosen directional outer layer – a Nikwax Analogy Waterproof, a Nikwax Windproof, Nikwax Windproof Denim or Nikwax Fleece.
