I have a Helki I love it. I did have some first time issues with it soaking out. Though after tx direct it has been great.
The only thing I find with Paramo gear. It can get warm and after a while the inside can get clammy and sticky from sweat. Though I suppose most jackets like that after so much use!

I wish it had some pit zips. I'm partly wishing I'd bought maybe a Quito instead. Just a little more venting would be perfect.

They are. But so is the Velez Adventure Light smock, that Iíve never had same problem with.
The trousers have stretch panels, which aren't quite the same material - note the difference in shine. Or at least mine do.

Cheers.


Iím not alone by the way in finding the waterproofness of the Velez trousers problematical...Geordie (who used to contribute here a lot, havenít spotted any of his postings for a long time) reported same issue.

Agree!
I Unzip front (when not raining) and angle out the side (as wearing a rucksack), creates a decent air catch vacuum, if wind blowing towards you!
