Our review - Paramo Ladies Alondra Traveller:
The Alondra Traveller provides carrying space during warm weather activities including exploring and sightseeing, nature watching and photography.

If treated with Nikwax CottonProof, Nikwax Cotton+ is a quick-drying fabric well-suited to providing protection and durability. Through careful design, significant weight can be transported without discomfort and items easily accessed without disruption to wildlife.

By combining the best properties of both fibres, Nikwax Cotton+ offers easy wear and easy care qualities - it is fast-drying, lightweight and comfortable to wear in warm weather but also robust and protective. As well as blocking the wind and harmful UV rays, it will, if maintained with Nikwax CottonProof, provide shower resistance too.
