The Alize Fleece is for active women who swap between activities and environments.

Unpredictable weather can cause a predicament for backpackers, trail runners, cyclists and walkers. It is a challenge to pack light and still be prepared for all possible conditions.

The Alize Fleece offers a solution: worn on its own, it is highly breathable, provides warmth, and repels moisture thanks to a PFC-free water-repellent treatment. When conditions turn windier, wetter or cooler, the Alize Windproof is quickly added on top for good weather protection.


The Alize Fleece provides both functionality and comfort.

  • Simple, close-fitting "Ninja" hood that fits well under a helmet.
  • Five pockets, all lined with mesh Pump Liner® to help move moisture.
  • Off-centre zip prevents discomfort around the mouth and avoids bulk when layered.

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


Nikwax Duology Fleece is lightweight, highly wind resistant and has a durable water repellent finish suitable for use in light showers, protecting against mist and drizzle.

Nikwax Duology Plus Fleece is a thick pile, directional fleece offering superior insulation and high levels of water repellency. It actively pushes liquid water outwards, keeping you dry even in poor weather conditions.

Nikwax Windproof FabricA Duology windproof cuts windchill, deflects rain and traps still air in the fibres of Duology fleeces to provide varying levels of insulation and waterproofing depending on the weather conditions and activity. The fleeces come in two weights to suit different requirements.

How will my Páramo Duology Fleece outperform other mid-layers?

What users say...


“If smartphones have supplanted ordinary phones, then the Alize is a ‘smartfleece’. To touch (or rather stroke), the Alize is soft and this furry fabric does more than just feel nice. It was developed by Nikwax to be water repellent and wind resistant. With its athletic fit and longer arms, this is a light and versatile fleece for optimum mobility and comfort in the extremes, designed to work in combo with the Alize Windproof. And as with all Páramo kit, it boasts superb eco and ethical credentials.”

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Alize Fleece?

Worn alone, the Alize Fleece will protect against mist or drizzle and provide insulation.

Combined with the Alize Windproof, it will give good waterproof protection and additional warmth for cooler, wetter conditions.

Equally, it forms an effective midlayer for extra insulation under an Analogy waterproof in cold conditions, making it a versatile and useful year-round fleece.


Which garments should I use with my Duology Fleece to get optimum performance?

We recommend combining our Fleece garments with the relevant Duology Windproof for varying levels of insulation and waterproofing depending on the weather conditions and activity. The fleeces come in two weights to suit different requirements. Click here for more information.

Any Páramo baselayer worn underneath a Duology fleece will enhance the performance of the combination, keeping you dry and comfortable when working hard.

In extremely cold conditions our Torres overlayers are designed to be worn on top of your outer garments.


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.
