How will my Páramo warm weather wear outperform other trek and travel wear?

The Parameta A fabric used for Páramo trek and travel wear provides superior performance for warm weather. As well as feeling light and cool, it is designed to actively cool you by spreading perspiration to prevent pooling and using every last drop of perspiration to cool you. The dense weave not only blocks virtually all harmful UV rays but also very effectively deters biting insects. Many other ‘insect deterrent’ fabrics use a treatment which will wash out after only a few uses. It dries very rapidly making it ideal for travel and expeditions when washing facilities may be limited.

  1. Dense fabric weave deters biting insects combined with secure cuff closure, closely spaced buttons and high fastening collar.
  2. Increased wind and sun protection through traditional style collar and scooped hem.
  3. Secure and discreet pocketing:
    • Concealed zipped passport sized pocket.
    • Small buttoned ‘ticket’ pocket high on chest.
  4. Maximum freedom of movement from articulated sleeves.
  5. Centre back pleat aids movement and fit.
  6. Double buttons at bust prevent gape.
  7. Low bulk cuff allows sleeves to be rolled up for cooling.
  8. Minimal rucksack rub over shoulder area due to flat shoulder seams.

What users say...

“Páramo shirts are brilliant, I'm wearing the shirt that's shown in the advert, it's more of a green colour. I shall be wearing it for two days running ,and know that when I change out of it ,it can be washed and dried overnight.”

Sheila Coates

We spent a week travelling through central Cappadocia in central Turkey, backpacking and hitch-hiking through the barren, dusty region. The Páramo shirts worked brilliantly, keeping me dry and cool as I moved from cave systems to highland steppe, walking in backing sun carrying all my kit.

The Parameta A shirt was washed midweek in a sink, wrung dry and still looked good enough to wear on the flight home!

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Socorro Shirt?

The Socorro’s Parameta A fabric is ultra-cooling, holding perspiration close to your skin and evaporating it to keep you cool. It provides UV protection so is ideal for hot, sunny weather. Because the fabric provides active cooling, the shirt may be less comfortable in cooler, windier conditions, especially if you get wet. In more temperate conditions, we suggest a wicking baselayer in Parameta T+ or Parameta G, if necessary worn under a Nikwax Windproof, to provide less cooling.

Which garments should I use with my Parameta® A garment to get optimum performance?

Parameta A is an active cooling fabric, very effective in hot conditions, and so is often worn alone. If extra protection is wanted in windy or showery conditions it can be combined with a Nikwax Cotton+ outer or a Nikwax Windproof. Both of these will help to deflect wind and showers without inhibiting breathability or adding significant insulation.

In hot conditions, we recommend pairing Parameta A® shirts with a pair of light, fast-drying Parameta A® Cotton+ Trousers.
