British outdoor clothing specialists Páramo prove that not all garments are made equal with their revolutionary Halcon Jacket for men.
Staying warm and dry when exploring the world’s far-flung corners can be the difference between enjoying travel and having a terrible time far from home. And staying dry and warm often comes down to packing the right equipment, including outdoor clothing that’s made of sterner stuff than the weather you’re going up again.
After consultation with wildlife photographers, search and rescue teams like the National Search & Rescue Dog Association in the UK, and bands of expert testers and designers, Páramo created the Halcon Jacket for Men to their collection of rugged, intelligent outdoors clothing.
The secret to all Páramo garments – from the reversible next-to-skin base layers up to the outer weatherproof gear – is the innovative fabrics engineered by its sister company Nikwax, which have been designed to actively ‘direct’ water (liquid water as well as water vapor) to where travelers need it to keep them comfortable. This makes Páramo clothing not only waterproof but breathable as well, and the silent ‘soft shell’ fabrics make the various items a joy to wear.
With nine easily accessible pockets, a fleece-lined collar, and hand-warming pockets, the Halcon Jacket features Páramo’s signature Analogy fabric and ventilation options which help travelers maintain comfort without constantly having to remove or add layers.
Other features of this truly revolutionary item include articulated shoulders and sleeves for maximum movement, a two-way reversed zip with poppered internal flap, reinforced shoulder construction and removable foam inserts for increased comfort when carrying heavy loads, a two-inch drip skirt and scooped tail, and waist and hem drawcords to help regular internal temperature.
For travelers looking to access camera equipment, maps, or notepads on the go, the Halcon’s collection of pockets include two external secure and ‘dry’ breast pockets large enough for field guides or maps; a large secure internal mesh breast pocket; two large bellows pockets with secure fold-over tops; and two low-level inner mesh pockets.
Designed by outdoors lovers for outdoors lovers, the Páramo Halcon Jacket for Men is a must-have for anyone looking to tackle mother nature.
