Páramo’s Velez Adventure Light Smock is one truly astounding bit of kit – so good in fact, we’re not really what to gush over first. That fabric is pretty special – story goes that an intrepid hiker by the name of Nick Brown thought the waterproof outdoor-wear of the day was too torrid for the never-quite-hot, never-quite-cold weather in Britain, so he set out to make something that wasn’t only waterproof, but highly breathable in muggy environments as well. This chain of thought quickly led to a fabric called Nikwax Analogy. We you won’t bog you down with all the various jiggery-pokery that goes into making this stuff, so we’ll just say it’ll keep the rain off you, without leaving you sweating buckets everytime a canter is called for.
There’s a smattering of useful features here as well: that kangaroo pocket arrangement should store plenty of the day’s odds and ends, that packable, wire-lined, drawcord hood should come in handy every time you’re stranded in a unannounced downpour, and those zippered side vents makes this one proper easy to slip in/out of. And it features not one, but two of the finest logos ever to grace an anorak to boot.
