The Ventura Windproof is for women who enjoy mountain activities – climbing, alpinism, mountaineering - across the seasons.

On the mountains in Summer, you need a breathable garment to protect from wind and showers, without overheating.

The Ventura Windproof offers wind and water resistant protection with excellent ventilation for warmer months. With the Ventura Fleece, it creates a waterproof system for colder, wetter conditions.

With a design that complements the Ventura Fleece, the Ventura Windproof offers versatile protection from wind and rain plus mountain-friendly features.

  • Designed for mountain use with helmet-friendly hood, harness-compatible design, great articulation and generous ventilation.
  • Intelligent, secure pocketing for maps, compass/GPS and valuables.
  • Specifically designed to be compatible with the Ventura Fleece to create a versatile waterproof mountain 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.

So expect versatile year-round protection with excellent moisture control and practical provision for mountain 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. Fully adjustable hood with wired peak fits over a helmet and gives an excellent field of vision
  2. Secure storage from two chest pockets - one map-sized with ski pass pocket within; the other for fast access to GPS/compass.
  3. Two-way front zip for easy ventilation, off-centre to maximise pocket space and avoid rubbing at chin and mouth.
  4. Additional temperature control from upper arm vents, on front of sleeve for effectiveness, and cuffs which easily push up and secure for cooling.
  5. Articulated shoulders and sleeves for freedom of movement.
  6. Scooped tail with elasticated hem for lower back protection.
  7. Reflective strip and branding to enhance visibility.
  8. Combines with Ventura Fleece to form a waterproof mountain system.


In what weather conditions can I use a Ventura Windproof Jacket?

Used alone, the windproof and water-resistant fabric of the Ventura Windproof provides ideal protection against wind and Summer showers. Its breathability helps prevent overheating.

In winter or more extreme conditions and at altitude, the Ventura Windproof Jacket will give waterproof and insulating performance when combined with the Ventura Fleece, making this a very versatile and useful year-round jacket.

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.
