The Pájaro is designed for nature, outdoor photography and other country activities.

These activities involve exertion while moving, then remaining static for long periods. To be comfortable, you need ventilation options to reduce clothing changes when active and efficient moisture removal to prevent chilling when static. Ideally, essential equipment should be in easy reach.

Directional Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric gives dry comfort. Temperature moderation is provided by vents on arms and torso. Intelligent pocketing gives easy access to essentials.


The Pájaro Jacket offers plentiful pockets, excellent ventilation and a carefully designed hood

  • Easily accessible storage from eight well-placed pockets.
  • Good ventilation limits the need for clothing changes from upper arm vents, torso vents, two way front zip and sleeves that can be pushed up for cooling.
  • Uninterrupted vision in all weathers due to the fully-adjustable hood with wired peak which moves with you.

Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.

Nikwax Analogy Waterproof FabricThis means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.

It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.

In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.

Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.

An added advantage is that the fabric is quiet and flexible, unlike stiffer membranes or laminates. This makes it an ideal choice for wildlife watchers.

Read more here on the difference between directionality and breathability.


Choose the Pájaro Jacket for its ability to provide rustle-free, all-weather protection with generous pocketing …

The Pájaro Jacket uses soft, quiet but tough Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof fabric, with a superb protective hood that moves with your head. Upper arm vents and torso vents make it easy to control your temperature. The eight pockets are carefully placed for speedy access to essential equipment.

So expect outstanding weather protection without rustle, effective condensation removal, cooling when needed, plus generous, well-placed pockets.


How will your Páramo® garment outperform breathable membranes?

Nikwax Analogy fabrics are not only extremely breathable, they are directional too. This means that water, both liquid and vapour, is directed outwards, ensuring your insulation remains protected.

Although breathable membranes allow moisture vapour to pass through them, they do nothing to transport liquid water. Therefore, when the production of sweat exceeds the Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate, or when the external temperatures drop, condensation (the change of water from vapour to liquid) will build up in breathable membranes.

Nikwax Analogy is so durable you could puncture a Páramo waterproof with pins, remove them, and still stay dry in the rain! Unlike coated or membrane-based garments, our directional clothing can be easily repaired, without compromising future performance.


  1. Eight pockets hold essential equipment to hand:
    • Two external chest pockets large enough for field guide or map
    • Two large bellows pockets with secure fold-over tops with poppers
    • Two handwarming pockets accessed through torso vents
    • Two low level spacious inner mesh drop pockets.
  2. Upper arm vents and torso vents allow temperature control while on the move.
  3. Wide field of vision from adjustable, wired-peak hood.
  4. Increased comfort when load-carrying from reinforced shoulders and back.
  5. Articulated shoulder design with raglan sleeves for maximum ease of movement.
  6. Two-way front zip with poppered internal storm flap allows ventilation and access to inner layers.
  7. Easy-adjust cuff with hard-wearing tab adjuster for precise fit and allows sleeves to be easily pushed up for cooling.
  8. Trees for lifeReduce your jacket's ‘carbon footprint’ and make a positive impact on wildlife. Every Pájaro contributes to plant a sapling with Trees for Life, a charity dedicated to regenerating and restoring the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands.


People who have bought the Men’s Pájaro Jacket say this about it…


The Nikwax Analogy® Fabric System

“I am a mountaineering instructor working in Wales during the summer and Scotland through the winter. Over the past 12 years I have used various different clothing systems. Of all the systems I have used I have not found anything that beats Páramo. A lot of hard shell systems claim to be breathable and waterproof - this may be true in laboratory tests but in reality when used for a day in typical Scottish winter conditions they fall a long way short of their claims. On the other hand, Páramo systems do what they say”

Chris Thorne, Llyn Adventures



In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Pájaro Jacket?

Your Pájaro Jacket has been tested to resist at least 4 hours of heavy rain; so you can use it throughout the year in cold or wet conditions. Because the fabric system offers significant insulation, this is not the best garment to deal with heavy showers in very hot conditions. In that case we would recommend a Nikwax Windproof, perhaps combined with one of our Parameta T+ baselayers, to optimise breathability and cooling.


Which garments should I wear with my Nikwax Analogy Waterproof for optimum performance?

We recommend using our Parameta® T+, Parameta T, or Parameta G baselayers underneath your Nikwax Analogy clothing.

The Parameta T+ is a reversible, lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric, which offers two levels of cooling. It is asymmetrical and wicking, directing water from one fabric face to the other, as well as rapidly spreading moisture to speed up evaporation and, therefore, cooling.

Parameta T is a lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric. It wicks effectively to spread perspiration and dry quickly, providing light insulation in cooler conditions. Its soft feel is very comfortable against the skin, even when worn for prolonged periods.

Parameta G directional polyester fabric can provide either cooling or insulation, as needed. Its raised grid pattern traps air for insulation when covered with another layer. However, worn alone, or exposed through a garment vent, it allows air to pass through it and cool you down.

In extremely cold conditions, our Nikwax Analogy Insulator garments can be worn over your waterproof clothing. This is useful when stopping, or setting up camp at the end of the day.


Trees for lifeThis garment donates to Trees for Life

Every jacket bought plants a sapling with Trees for Life, an award-winning charity dedicated to regenerating and restoring the Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands. Reduce your jacket’s ‘carbon footprint’ and make a positive impact on wildlife.


Páramo clothing does not rely on hazardous PFC treatments for water repellency.

Working closely with Nikwax, we have developed a pioneering PFC-free treatment for our fleeces, waterproofs and windproofs. Recent studies show that PFC’s are persistent in the environment and are damaging to human health; which is why Nikwax waterproofing solutions are water-based, use no harmful solvents or propellant gases, contain no damaging PFC’s and are not tested on animals.

This garment is made by the charitable Miquelina Foundation.

Páramo’s ethical manufacturing partnership with the Miquelina Foundation in Bogotá, Colombia, has offered vulnerable women training and employment since 1992. This alliance has benefitted thousands of at-risk women in practical ways, helping them to build houses, and providing a kindergarten and canteen for their children. With Páramo’s support, Miquelina holds ISO 9001 accreditation, which assures dedication to quality. In 2017, Miquelina attained guaranteed Fair Trade status from the World Fair Trade Organization.

All Páramo® garments are covered by our Recycling Scheme, which prevents them from ending up in landfill. For every item of Páramo® clothing you recycle with us, you will receive a voucher of (up to) £50, to use against a future purchase.

Nikwax Analogy fabric systems are uniquely suited to recycling as they avoid the need for mixed materials, membranes or taped seams. Instead, they use 100% polyester, which unlike many materials, can be broken down and reformed into new, high quality fibres. Click here to read more about recycling your Páramo.
