The Velez Adventure Trousers are for very active outdoor people who enjoy a range of outdoor activities.

If you are going out in changeable conditions, you face the hassle of having to put on waterproof trousers if the weather deteriorates. These are often carried separately, as they are too noisy, sweaty and uncomfortable to wear all the time.

The Velez Adventure Trousers can be worn comfortably all day next to skin, even if it is not raining. The highly breathable and directional Nikwax Analogy® fabric combines with ventilation to deliver optimum comfort.

The Velez Adventure Trousers have great ventilation freedom of movement and ankle adjustment.

  • Easy and rapid temperature adjustment when on the move provided by discreet thigh zips with internal storm flaps.
  • Great freedom of movement from excellent knee and leg articulation.
  • Adaptable for different activities thanks to ankle adjustment with hook and loop fastening.

Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.

Nikwax Analogy Waterproof FabricThis means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.

It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.

In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.

Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.

To understand the difference between directionality and breathability, you can read more here.

Choose Velez Adventure Trousers for all day comfort in wet OR dry conditions.

The Velez Adventure trousers combine the Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof system with good ventilation, and an efficient fit that still allows great freedom of movement for different activities. These features enable you to put the trousers on next to skin at the start of the day and then forget about them. The thigh ventilation zips give good climate control, giving versatility in the temperatures and exertion levels you can be comfortable in.

From the Velez Adventures you can expect outstanding resistance to rain and condensation removal, versatility in temperature control, and an excellent performance to weight ratio.

How will your Páramo® garment outperform breathable membranes?

Nikwax Analogy fabrics are not only extremely breathable, they are directional too. This means that water, both liquid and vapour, is directed outwards, ensuring your insulation remains protected.

Although breathable membranes allow moisture vapour to pass through them, they do nothing to transport liquid water. Therefore, when the production of sweat exceeds the Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate, or when the external temperatures drop, condensation (the change of water from vapour to liquid) will build up in breathable membranes.

Nikwax Analogy is so durable you could puncture a Páramo waterproof with pins, remove them, and still stay dry in the rain! Unlike coated or membrane-based garments, our directional clothing can be easily repaired, without compromising future performance.

What users say...

''I was able to roll up the legs of the Velez Adventure Light Trousers as well as using the thigh vents making them usable in a wide range of temperatures.''

Matt Gemmell

''A particularly horrible lockdown day out in a boggy, wet, windy mess prompted an impulsive trip to the Páramo shop in Keswick. Thanks to the help of an amazing shop assistant we were in and out in within 30 minutes - George with a new Velez Evolution Smock and Trousers, and so not to be lacking in the Páramo game, me with a matching pair of ladies Velez Adventure Trousers! I was actually a bit disappointed with myself that I hadn’t purchased a pair of Páramo trousers earlier as they are now very much my go-to for any weather as they are so comfy, breathable, quick drying and definitely waterproof.''

Emma Gerrard - Mountain Leader & DofE Award volunteer

"Yesterday I subjected my Velez Adventure Trousers to an extreme test - 155km in continuous, driving rain on the S-Pedelec electric bike (cycling at
30 km/h) for 6 hours and with a 2 hour break in between. The trousers fitted extremely well, I was fully dry underneath and, when I put them back on again after my 2 hour break, the trousers were completely dry on the outside and as fresh as when I put them on in the morning. Throughout my cycle ride I felt comfortable, warm and dry - finally, a wet weather garment that truly deserves the title 'waterproof and breathable'!"

Michael Weinert

“I recently walked the Cape Wrath Trail clad head to toes in Páramo (if you exclude socks, count gaiters and my hood was up!). The system was fantastic and coped with cold, wind, rain and sun. I was wearing Pasco jacket, Velez Adventure trousers, Cambia long sleeved top and boxers, Mountain Vent top and short gaiters. I was comfortable at all times and Páramo definitely helped to ensure the success of my trip. I normally move fast and 'run hot' so for a trip of the last two weeks of April I was able to cope with anything the Scottish weather could have thrown at me. I would and do recommend Páramo to anyone who will listen. Thanks again.”

Matt Gemmell, West Dunbartonshire

“I have just bought the Velez Adventure Trousers. For their first test, I drove 200 miles to the Brecon Beacons in them, then walked in rain, hail and snow, slept in them in my bivvy bag for 2 nights and then drove home in them, not taking them off once. They don't leak, they breathe, they are easy to vent, they are nice and warm, feel great, dry very quickly, they don't slip down, no messing about putting trousers on and off, you can just forget about the weather and enjoy the walk.”

Mark Treacher

The Nikwax Analogy Fabric System

“I am a mountaineering instructor working in Wales during the summer and Scotland through the winter. Over the past 12 years I have used various different clothing systems. Of all the systems I have used I have not found anything that beats Páramo. A lot of hard shell systems claim to be breathable and waterproof - this may be true in laboratory tests but in reality when used for a day in typical Scottish winter conditions they fall a long way short of their claims. On the other hand, Páramo systems do what they say”

Chris Thorne, Llyn Adventures

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

Your Velez Jacket has been tested at the Leeds University Rain Room to resist at least 4 hours of steady rain. Therefore you can use them throughout the year in a temperate climate, and even at high altitude.

They are great for changeable conditions, because they are comfortable enough to wear all day. If it starts to rain heavily, you can just carry on going, without having to stop and put on something else. The fabric system is highly breathable and directional, which combined with the thigh vents means these trousers can be worn in warmer conditions than conventional “shell” trousers.

Which garments should I wear with my Nikwax Analogy Waterproof for optimum performance?

We recommend using our Parameta® T+, Parameta T, or Parameta G baselayers underneath your Nikwax Analogy clothing.

The Parameta T+ is a reversible, lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric, which offers two levels of cooling. It is asymmetrical and wicking, directing water from one fabric face to the other, as well as rapidly spreading moisture to speed up evaporation and, therefore, cooling.

Parameta T is a lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric. It wicks effectively to spread perspiration and dry quickly, providing light insulation in cooler conditions. Its soft feel is very comfortable against the skin, even when worn for prolonged periods.

Parameta G directional polyester fabric can provide either cooling or insulation, as needed. Its raised grid pattern traps air for insulation when covered with another layer. However, worn alone, or exposed through a garment vent, it allows air to pass through it and cool you down.

In extremely cold conditions, our Nikwax Analogy Insulator garments can be worn over your waterproof clothing. This is useful when stopping, or setting up camp at the end of the day.

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.

Páramo Men's EASY FIT Size Guide Garments are specified using metric measurements, therefore the metric measurements in this chart are the most accurate. Imperial equivalents are rounded to the nearest half number.


Measurements relate to the body rather than garment measurements, for example a leg length measurement given here is for a person's leg length, not the actual leg length of the garment to reflect the fact that our garments are designed specifically for a number of different activities.
