Gear / Re: Tested my Paramo
« Last post by NeilC on Today at 09:29:04 »

I can easily understand that. If effectively Paramo’s lightest/ least warm jacket is warm enough for some one as “cold sensitive” as me, not surprised kit is too warm for a fair number of people.


(And I know Fuera Ascent by itself isn’t waterproof.)


IIRC the hoodie that goes with the Fuera is one of Paramo's warmest fleeces isn't it? I suspect that's gonna be quite warm


I have an Alta 2, good for the colder months, makes me too hot the rest of the year. I like the long, wide non-elasticated sleeves, helps to keep the hands dry. The hood is pretty good too.


Yes the sleeves are good. I got my Helki deliberately quite large so I can put an insulated jacket under it and have the length in the sleeves - they come down over half my hand and that makes a big difference in stopping rain getting into gloves.

Is it just capitalism in action, people just trying to earning some money, or raising money for a charity? I've walked through a few, I much prefer walking into them that them pounding up behind me. I was able to do a good deed for two ladies on Offas Dyke, they were terrified to walk (it was uphill) through a herd of cows so I escorted them. Whayt a nice man!

Did you camp in the bungalow front garden just up the road from the pub? For me, ideal, two minutes away from a pint and a meal.
