Castleberg review - Paramo Velez Adventure Smock Mens
The Mens’ Paramo Velez Adventure Smock is Paramo’s answer to the need for an excellent waterproof smock-style jacket suitable for a whole host of sporty activities but with adventure racing particularly in mind with its fixed hood. It is also excellent for mountain biking, running, climbing, orienteering, scrambling and lightweight backpacking to name but a few. The smock style of the Velez with its fixed hood offers superb weather protection and uses the soft Nikwax analogy waterproof fabric for maximum comfort.
The Velez Adventure smock has a host of useful features for the wide range of activities to which it is suited. There are twin handy two-way zipped vents on the front side of the Velez with poppered baffles which allow for excellent temperature control and easy access to a full width hand warming/storage pocket that sits neatly across the front, also ideal for storing OS and Orienteering maps. The roomy outer ‘dry’ chest pocket with zip and storm flap is great for stashing items you need quick access to including maps but also for snacks, compass, whistle, mini First Aid Kit and gloves, etc.
The fully directional waterproof and windproof performance of the Velez Adventure Smock offers protection for all year round use and is ideal for high pulse activities and very easy to manoeuvre in with its cropped front and drop tail with draw-cord. The Velez has reflective strips for visibility and double layering at crucial points for technical rucksack use. The chest zip is reversed for comfort and to avoid abrasion whilst the Velcro cuffs with BiteTab closure allow the sleeves to be rolled up for additional temperature control. The peaked roll away adjustable hood has been designed to give maximum vision and combined with the high collar with central, single-hand adjustment this ensures excellent protection from the elements throughout the seasons.
The easy pull-on off design and stashability of the Velez Adventure Smock make this a superb waterproof for a wide range of outdoor pursuits but with particular emphasis on all year round high pulse activities.
