With the Quito, Paramo have done it yet again! This waterproof jacket is for very active people who want to carry the absolute minimum and adjust for temperature without changing clothing.
If you ride a bike in the city, or a mountain bike, or enjoy strenuous day walks and climbs, you need a versatile jacket.

Nikwax Analogy®is more than just breathable, it isdirectional, movingliquidwater
Conventional breathable membrane waterproof fabrics fail because they cannot remove all of the sweat we produce when we are working hard, especially in cold and wet conditions. Therefore condensation and icing are well known problems experienced with membrane rainwear.
Nikwax Analogy®overcomes these problems because it is not only breathable, but alsodirectional. The Analogy fabric system directs condensation and perspiration away from the body, where it can safely drain away.
