Lightweight and comfortable, these garments will evaporate moisture in minutes and are ideal for next-to-skin layers:
- in high temperatures
- for high energy activities.

|Wicking and Warmth|
Parameta® S and Parameta X are Nikwax Directional fabrics that wick but also direct water to one face and capture still air in the other. They provide excellent next-to-skin layers, either worn alone or under a Directional outer.
Parameta® S is reversible - water naturally concentrates in the smooth face of the fabric only:
- Worn smooth face to the skin it cools you – perfect if you’re working hard or are hot;
- With fleecy face next to the skin, air is trapped and water drawn away, so warming the body – ideal in cooler conditions or when you are still.

|Warmth and Waterproofing|
Nikwax Analogy® Fleece, like mammal fur, both repels rain and actively pushes water away from the body. All fleeces warm you by trapping still air between their fibres – wet a conventional fleece, however, and it loses up to 95% of its insulation. Páramo fleece offers superior comfort especially in humid conditions.

|Warmth, Windproofing and Waterproofing|
Páramo® Directional Waterproofs are made with Nikwax Analogy® which mimics the action of mammal fur, directing water away from you whilst protecting your insulation to keep you warm and dry. Conventional breathable waterproofs can only cope with 20% of the sweat you produce, for real comfort you need Páramo Directional Waterproofs.

The NEW Nikwax Analogy® Insulator fabric combines a windproof outer with a moisture-repellent fill. It warms the body quickly by very efficient retention of body heat, while the down-like feel and performance continue to work well even when wet, resisting moisture ingress but still allowing excellent moisture vapour transfer.
