The Ostro Windproof offers packable protection for runners, cyclists and walkers.

For high energy activities such as running and cycling, it's important to have a lightweight windproof on hand for protection from windchill when at rest or in an emergency. For walkers, it is useful to have a protective layer that uses minimal space in your bag.

The Ostro Windproof uses lightweight Nikwax® Windproof fabric with a TX.Direct water-repellent treatment for shower protection. It compacts into its own pocket and combines with the Ostro Fleece for good weather protection in wet or cold weather.

The Ostro Windproof packs down small into its own pocket, has a helmet-friendly hood and good ventilation options.

  • Internal stuff pocket with loop for attachment for transportation.
  • Stowable helmet-friendly hood with low profile peak and dual adjustment.
  • Temperature control from ventilation zips that also provide access to internal pockets.

The Ostro Windproof is specifically designed to be compatible with the Ostro Fleece. Together these two garments create a versatile waterproof system.

Nikwax® Windproof cuts windchill and protects your insulation but still provides excellent moisture vapour transfer,

Nikwax Windproof Fabric allowing perspiration to escape. The fabric is light but very durable and UV resistant, so providing excellent protection in all environments. It also deflects rain thanks to a Nikwax waterproofing treatment. It can be worn alone, or combined with Nikwax Fleece to create a fully directional waterproof system, equivalent to an Analogy waterproof.

Choose the Ostro Windproof for packability and versatility.

The Ostro Windproof is made from lightweight Nikwax® Windproof fabric with a PFC-free TX.Direct water-repellent treatment. It cuts strong winds and provides shower protection.

Combined with the Ostro Fleece, it forms a directional clothing system to protect from heavier rain and cold, making it a very flexible option for use across the seasons. It packs into its own stuff pocket to fit easily in your pack.

An adjustable "halo" hood moves without impairing vision and can be secured when not in use. The scooped tail ensures lower back protection for all activities. Subtle reflective flashes provide visibility in low light.

So the Ostro Windproof is a minimalist, lightweight, packable wind-resistant layer, versatile enough to wear year-round for a range of activities.

How will my Páramo Windproof outperform other windproofs?

Your Páramo windproof offers more versatility. Firstly because it is water-repellent and has a fully adjustable hood, it provides a good level of protection when worn as an outer layer, while offering exceptional breathability. Secondly, because in the worst conditions it can be worn over a Páramo Fleece to provide a higher level of weather protection. Therefore, it can adapt easily to a very wide range of conditions.

Páramo windproofs are extremely tough and durable, so suitable to be used in many different environments without damage.

  1. Helmet-friendly, securable "halo" hood with low profile peak and dual adjuster to move with you and not impair your vision.
  2. Ventilation zips on the torso give good temperature control and also allow access to two internal pockets.
  3. Stuffable into inside internal pocket with loop for easy transportation.
  4. Reflective flashes on sleeves, shoulders and hood to improve visibility in low light conditions.
  5. Scooped tail with hem drawcord for lower back protection.
  6. Excellent sleeve and shoulder articulation for full movement range during activity.
  7. Renewable water-repellency with PFC-free Nikwax® TX.Direct.
  8. Designed to be combined with the Men’s Ostro Fleece for very versatile weather protection.

What users say...


Wanderlust testimonial“This jacket was clearly designed for the active traveller. Tiny, light and with good features at a competitive price.”
Wanderlust magazine, September 2017


“There are trips when full blown weather protection isn’t necessary or expeditions to environments where rain is minimal but equally the chances of being caught in debilitating foul weather remain. Over the last three summers I’ve travelled to the remote Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, backpacking solo over some of the roughest terrain and bearing an expedition weight of 30kgs which includes a rifle, ammunition and a camp warning fence to protect against the islands’ polar bears. With specialist equipment a must, every other gram worn or borne must be accounted for. Precipitation is low but equally the possibility of being caught in numbing rain remains.

Having used a Páramo Fleece Windproof system before, I was keen to try the Ostro Fleece and Windshirt during my last trip. The Ostro is a light system with a contemporary feel. Over the course of 10 days hard backpacking the Fleece kept me warm and dry in both brisk winds and light showers. One afternoon as I headed out along a remote coastline a heavy Arctic squall landed. The Ostro Windshirt thrown on top kept the worst of the rain at bay until I was able to throw up my shelter.

What the Ostro brings to my clothing options is a light and flexible clothing system. The Fleece is warm, rain resistant and wind tight but takes little room stowed in the pack. It’s a contemporary design which looked as good in the Airport Lounge as it functioned out on the Arctic tundra. Throwing the Windshirt on pushed its capability considerably and it offers a good three season use for days when full rain protection is not a must. Both garments wore well over 10 days of carrying a very heavy pack and I’m convinced of their long term durability.”

In what weather conditions can I use my Ostro Windproof Jacket?

Used alone, the windproof, water-repellent fabric of the Ostro Windproof provides ideal protection against wind and light showers. Its breathability and ventilation help prevent overheating.

In colder, wetter or more changeable conditions the Ostro Windproof can be combined with the Ostro Fleece to give good waterproof and insulating performance, making this a very versatile and useful three-season windproof.

Which garments should I use with my Nikwax® Windproof to get optimum performance?

We recommend combining this Windproof garment with the relevant Nikwax Fleece for maximum effectiveness when conditions require. Worn over the appropriate Fleece garment, the combination can keep you dry and warm even in heavy rain, allowing you quickly to increase your protection if conditions deteriorate or for different times of year. The two garments are designed to function well together, with hoods that work in tandem and ventilation that lines up with internal pockets.

This Nikwax Windproof garment can be used over Parameta T+ Cambia, Parameta T Tempro or Parameta G Grid baselayers to protect you from wind-chill and light showers. This is an ideal combination for summer walking or climbing. It’s also great for high exertion winter activities such as trail running or cycling, where your route might take you onto exposed, windy ridges. Parameta G’s raised grid pattern will give you extra insulation under your windproof. Parameta T provides a balance between light insulation and heat dissipation for mid-range temperatures. Parameta T+ is our lightest and coolest wicking baselayer fabric, ideal for warmer conditions where you don’t need significant extra insulation. The fabric will manage any sweat you produce when working hard, rapidly moving it across the fabric for easy evaporation.

For trips when you’re likely to experience extreme cold, our Nikwax Insulator garments are designed to be worn on top of your outer garments. This is great when stopping whether to eat lunch, take some photographs or set up camp.

Páramo® clothing does not rely on hazardous fluorocarbon (PFC) treatments for water-repellency.

Páramo have pioneered a treatment programme for waterproofs, fleeces and windproofs which enables us to take untreated fabrics and add Nikwax® waterproofing, not reliant on fluorocarbons to repel water. Studies show that fluorocarbons of all kinds persist in the environment and are damaging to human health. Nikwax waterproofing solutions are water-based and use no harmful solvents or propellant gases, are not tested on animals, not harmful to humans, and contain no damaging fluorocarbons. For more information on our PFC policy, click here.
