We love Paramao and recommend the Andina for very active, outdoor women who swap between activities
If you enjoy mountain walking, cycling, climbing and backpacking, you need a versatile jacket suitable for all these activities. Good protection from wind and rain, and something to keep you warm is essential. However, you also need to be able to keep cool when you are working hard.
The Andina’s versatile design combines with the Nikwax Analogy®fabric for optimum comfort. The Andina provides waterproof protection, warmth, and cooling in one tough, but feminine garment.
The Andina has great ventilation, a reinforced back and a feminine cut
Optimum cooling when working hard provided by massive zipped vents, carefully positioned for ease of use.
Enhanced weather protection when carrying a rucksack provided by mesh reinforcement in the back panel
Comfort, function and style by combining a feminine cut with articulated shoulders and elbows.
Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.
This means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.
It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.
In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.
Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.

Measurements relate to the body rather than garment measurements.
