 Guide

The Grid Technic Hoodie is essential kit for both highly demanding and everyday outdoor activities.

For all outdoor activities, finding a clothing system to cope with differing temperatures and activity levels through the day is a challenge. You end up adding or removing layers to stay comfortable.

The Grid Technic Hoodie helps reduce the need to change layers by offering cooling when exposed to the wind, or insulation when covered with a windproof or waterproof. The added head protection from a close-fitting hood extends its usefulness.

The Grid Technic Hoodie has a close-fitting hood, secured with an off-centre zip and a secure pocket.

  • 'Ninja' hood fits snugly to move with you and fit under a helmet if needed.
  • The asymmetric zip avoids rubbing around the chin and mouth and allows for variable ventilation.
  • A zipped kangaroo pocket provides handwarming and quick access to essentials.

Parameta® G fabric is two fabrics in one, providing cooling when needed and insulation when needed.

Parameta G FabricWhen covered with a wind-proof the fleecy grid squares trap air and provide excellent insulation. When uncovered the gaps between the grid allow moving air to go straight to the skin, promoting cooling. The structure of this next-to-the-skin fabric optimises lateral water movement for evaporative cooling, keeping you comfortable when you are working hard.

These features provide a fabric which can keep you warm and keep you cool, and therefore is useful in the widest range of temperature conditions and activities, from high mountain climbing to gentle spring and summer walking, and all year round cycling.

Choose a Grid Technic Hoodie because it is versatile and reduces the layers you need to stay comfortable…

The Hoodie offers the wicking and insulating benefits of Parameta G fabric in a functional, athletic design.

Worn alone, the Grid wicks sweat over a large surface area for efficient, rapid cooling. Covered with a windproof, the raised grid pattern traps air for good insulation. The hood provides effective neck, head and face protection. The asymmetrical zip provides an additional ventilation opportunity without causing discomfort around the chin and mouth.

So expect huge versatility from one comfortable, stylish baselayer.

How will your Páramo® baselayer outperform other wicking baselayers?

Most other baselayers on the market are either thin for use in warmer conditions, or thick for use in colder conditions. This means that throughout the course of a day where temperatures or exertion levels vary, you may have to put on and take off several layers.

Páramo’s Parameta G baselayers offer more versatility, behaving like a thinner, cooler baselayer when uncovered, but like a thicker, warmer baselayer when covered with a windproof outer.

  1. Close-fitting "Ninja"-hood fits well under a helmet.
  2. Off-centre, deep front zip avoids discomfort around the mouth area and provides variable ventilation.
  3. Zipped 'kangaroo' style handwarming pocket.
  4. Contoured shape and athletic fit for freedom of movement.

What users say...


Best in Test Award 2017“A brilliant winter base layer.”

Best in Test 2017


“A great piece of kit from everyday wear to part of a layering system. Wicks moisture well and seems to have the usual Páramo qualities of good design and build quality. Will be ordering another one ASAP.”

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Grid Technic Hoodie?

The Grid Technic Hoodie is ideal for three season use in a temperate climate, or all year round in high mountain or cold environments.

For wetter or colder conditions, the Hoodie combines very well with a Nikwax Analogy Waterproof jacket to give a high level of protection.

It is not ideal for hot summer conditions, when we would recommend one of our Cambia baselayers made from Parameta T+.

Which garments should I use with my Parameta® G baselayer to get optimum performance?

This Parameta G fabric used for this garment makes it ideal to use underneath garments made from Nikwax Windproof or Analogy Waterproof fabrics. The fabric’s raised grid pattern is protected from wind, trapping air for insulation. If used with a style which offers ventilation zips, this allows you to expose areas of the Grid baselayer, providing cooling which can be easily attained without taking layers off.

Use the Grid Technic covered by Nikwax Windproof for moderate insulation and water resistance. This combination is great in warmer conditions where showers rather than heavy rain are predicted.

Use the Grid Technic covered by Nikwax Analogy Waterproof for a higher level of insulation and full waterproofing. This combination is good on colder winter days, especially if heavier rain is expected.
