PÁRamo – Pasco Jacket

It does not often happen that I leave so long for a test. But with the Pasco Jacket from Paramo, I really wanted to be on the safe side. This is a completely new concept. That’s why I’ve tested the jacket for over a year now.

PÁRamo Directional Clothing

Many of you have certainly not heard much about Páramo. This is due to the fact that this brand has so far mainly focused on the British market and has only slowly swept over to the continent in recent years. On the other hand, however, it is also because the market has been crushed in the last few years by the sheer market power of the Gore-Tex products and the millions of budgets behind the small companies have hardly left a chance. I’m always a fan of changing things.

If one reads the name Páramo, one must inevitably also call the company Nikwax. This is well known to many hikers when it comes to care products and impregnation. The fact that they are also for a complete clothing system, is again not so many people clear. The Nikwax founder Nick Brown had the idea to these substances already in the year 1984. Up until now, however, they were not able to penetrate a wide bank.

Páramo has decided to design functional, powerful and at the same time comfortable outdoor clothes for this system from Nikwax.


The term directionality means the ability of a substance to transport the liquid water in a certain direction. In the case of outdoor clothing, this means: as far away as possible from the body. All Páramo jackets consist of two important layers. The inner liner absorbs the water and transports it outwards by capillary action. The outer layer is a water-repellent fabric which is more breath-active than a conventional membrane. More background information can be found here.

Pasco Jacket

Theory has been worked out based on JACKETPANEL. We come to the Pasco Jacket selbt. At first glance, the Pasco Jacket does not look like a state of the art functional jacket. The outer material has little in common with the usual plastic bombs, which one knows from the outdoor stores. The fabric is soft and feels more silk-like, albeit a lot more robust. The look and feel more like a training suit from the 90s.

But once you wear the jacket, you do not want to go back. The wearing feeling is a lot more pleasant than that of Hardshells. There is hardly any rustling and the jacket feels much more comfortable.


The subjective feeling plays an important role in breathing activity. I have in the last years determined 10 to 15 jackets with membrane tried. One after the other has promised a better respiratory activity. Unfortunately, I could not confirm this. I sweat very much and start fast. To slip into a membrane jacket has almost the same effect for me as to be welded into a fresh film. The little thing that these jackets pass by steam is simply not enough for my output.

Let’s go to the Pasco Jacket. The system of Paramo is not simply to let the water vapor escaping, but to transport the wet perspiration directly in liquid form from the body so that it can escape later through the outer layer, which is a lot more active than a membrane.

It is clear to me that there is already functional clothing and also underwear, which does the same or similar and it is sensible to use these also. But if you wear a hardshell with a membrane, the perspiration will bump into the membrane at some point.

Last year the Páramo system proved to be a great success for me. The Pasco Jacket has become my absolute favorite jacket. I wear them not only outdoors but also in daily use. I would not if she was not so comfortable to wear.

The Weight

This all sounds just too good to be true. A jacket that is better than an ordinary hardshell in almost all aspects and even better for the environment ?! That’s true! But the Pasco Jacket has a big hit point! The weight is significantly higher with 662g than with most other solutions from my wardrobe. This is, of course, due to the materials used.The inner fleece adds a lot of weight to the jacket. This disadvantage, however, is only a compromise.

Not For Any Weather?

The fleece, which has just been mentioned, and the weight that is connected with it, will of course be compensated for by the increased insulation capacity of the jacket. A middle layer is being saved just in autumn and spring, which balances the weight balance to a large extent.

What do you do in the summer? At warm temperatures the Pasco Jacket gets warm. Although the ventilation possibilities are excellent, but unfortunately these can not cool down the temperature inside the jacket. The solution: In summer, I use a different solution. Either I take a screen or the good old Dri Ducks jacket. The egg laying woolen milk will never give it.

Details Of The PÁRamo – Pasco Jacket

Let’s get to the hard facts of the Pasco Jacket. The manufacturer uses the following technical features:

  1. Large ventilation openings with two-way zipper and internal draft shield for effective ventilation without rain.
  2. Pump Liner® Reinforced shoulders and back for extra protection when carrying a backpack or in heavy rain.
  3. Two inner hand warmers (access through ventilation openings on the upper body).
  4. Articulated shoulders and elbows for maximum freedom of movement and an optimal fit.
  5. Fully adjustable hood with screen for comprehensive weather protection without restricting the field of view.
  6. Two-way zip with internal windbreak.
  7. Reflector strips for improved visibility.
  8. Longer sleeves – ideal for cyclists.

The model tested by me has the following features:

Color: French Navy

Size: M

Weight: 662g (reweighted)

What Is The Future?

The current development is not the end of the flagpole. The newer model has a much more technical cut and is equipped with a lighter and airier inner lining. This makes the jackets even more attractive for all enthusiasts who pay attention to the weight.

Good For The Environment

The materials used are above all a great step for the environment. Páramo was  the first outdoor company to commit itself to Greenpeace’s detox campaign by 2020 to replace hazardous substances in production withnon -hazardous substances. These are laudable goals and Páramo is from all the manufacturers I know on the best way to achieve this.

As a consumer, I feel taken seriously and trust the product. For this higher goal, I also like to buy a few grams more and hope that the development will go more in this direction.


The environmentally friendly and outstanding function make the Pasco Jacket by Paramo the ideal companion for temperatures well below 20 ° C. In my wardrobe I would not miss this. Even if the weight is not to be seen as the ultimate, I will gladly accept this compromise in some cases. Due to its versatility, this jacket makes an excellent figure in the city as well as in nature when the outside temperature is correct.

Páramo gave me this product free of charge for the test. This fact, however, does not affect the test. All tests and product presentations on this outdoor blog are written to the best of our knowledge.
