Paramo's Women's Cascada II Trousers are for serious walkers, outdoors for long periods in varying conditions.
If you walk in all weathers, you’ll be familiar with the problem of quickly pulling on overtrousers when conditions worsen – only to remove them once the rain passes! Conventional waterproof trousers trap heat and sweat when you’re working hard and can be noisy and uncomfortable.
Cascada IIs are articulated, waterproof walking trousers you can wear comfortably all day in varying conditions. Directional Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric gives you dry next-to-skin comfort and weather protection. Extensive vents allow excellent temperature regulation when you’re working hard. No need for overtrousers!
The Cascada II Trousers have excellent leg ventilation, a contoured shape, and reinforced knee, thigh and seat areas.
Easy and rapid temperature adjustmentprovided by 3/4 length reversed side zips with internal poppered storm flaps.
Trim, contoured shapewith good articulation for unrestricted movement.
Additional protectionfrom double layer of Pump Liner in seat, thigh and knee areas
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.
Choose Cascada II Trousers for all-day comfort …
The Cascada II Trousers combine the Nikwax Analogy Waterproof system with a contoured fit for a weight-efficient, stylish trouser. Good articulation gives unrestricted freedom of movement. An effective ventilation system with ¾ length side zips and poppered internal storm flap enables effective temperature control during high energy activities even in wet weather. A double layer of Pump Liner in seat, thigh and knee areas gives extra protection. So, expect all-day comfort without needing to stop and change to suit the weather conditions.
How will your Páramo® outperform breathable membrane garments?
The Nikwax Analogy system is designed not only to be extremely breathable, but also directional. That means that it directs liquid water as well as water vapour towards the outside of the garment, protecting your insulation.
Although breathable membranes allow moisture vapour to pass through them, they do nothing to transport liquid water. Therefore, when the production of sweat exceeds moisture vapour transfer, they begin to build up condensation, soaking inner clothing.
So Nikwax Analogy garments work much better for heavy work, and in colder or highly humid conditions, because they actively move all perspiration and condensation outwards.
