What users say...

''I have owned my Páramo Velez Adventure Smock for over 10 years now and it offers continued excellent water proofing that keeps the rain at bay on my walk in to a camp and great wind resistance when photographing from the camp itself. It is imperative that I don’t get wet beyond my outer layer as I will be living in the minimal clothes that I have with me for over 24 hours. The hood is a perfect design, offering amazing protection from the elements and is also comfy to sleep in. It really is my go to jacket for any wild camping trip as I know it will keep me warm and dry and I can throw it on when needed and not feel like I need to take it off unless it gets really hot.''

Paul Allen

''This year is my 10th year with my Velez Adventure Smock and I still love it. It is still the most reliable waterproof coat I have owned that keeps me dry in all conditions, all year round. Jackets with membranes that I have bought for work have come and gone in that time, but the Velez has been reliable week in, week out.''

Nick Davis

''For cooler weather I always carry the Velez Adventure Smock, and in winter it's the jacket I take in preference over my older, but still perfectly good down jacket from Rab. Not because that one has any faults, but because the Velez is a fraction of the bulk, it feels much less cumbersome and more agile. It's just as warm, as well as being waterproof, and it's proven itself by remaining so even when hiking full days in soaking rain. And the cut is just right - low at the back for providing added protection/warmth, slightly shorter at the front. At a little over 700g it's not exactly light, but it's certainly no heavier than carrying an insulating jacket of similar warmth along with a dependable waterproof.''

Rudolf Abraham

''I have owned many jackets but none of them have had the longevity of my Páramo Velez Smock. Every season I keep telling myself, “this year I will need to replace it.” The original purchase price was £180 and I have owned the jacket for 19 Years, which equates to £9:50 a Year which is tremendous value for money. The smock is so versatile, you can wear to the pub, sledging with the kids, walking in the hills, it is as comfortable to wear in the summer as in the depth of winter. It can be rolled up and stuffed in a rucksack, used as a seat pad or even a camping pillow. I do not go anywhere without it! ''

Jonathan Shepherd

“I bought my Velez Adventure Smock 2 years ago and it has been my best outdoor kit purchase to date. It's survived heavy wind and rain in the Lake District, Wales and Dartmoor and I couldn't have been happier. Since I changed to Paramo I won't be going back to hardshell coats!”

Andrew Harbey, Buckinghamshire

“WOW! After years of wearing GORETEX, members of Dartmoor Search and Rescue team assured me Páramo was better. I took the plunge and purchased a Velez Adventure Smock. The first outing was to undertake the Dartmoor Perambulation, 84 km in two days. We had driving rain, wind and snow.This jacket is FANTASTIC, I cannot recommend it enough. On the few times it did stop raining the side vent zips could be opened if you felt you were getting warm. Thank you Páramo!”

Dave Bradfield, DEVON

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Velez Adventure Smock?

Your Smock has been tested in the Leeds University Rain Room to resist at least 4 hours of heavy rain at approximately five times the intensity of normal UK rainfall and you can use it throughout the year in cold or wet conditions.

Because the fabric system offers significant insulation when the ventilation zips are closed, this is not the best garment to use in hot conditions. In that case we would recommend a Nikwax® Windproof combined with a Parameta® T+ baselayer, to optimise breathability and cooling. For full weather protection, swap the baselayer for a Nikwax® Fleece.
