I love my Women’s Velez Adventure and wear it constantly, waterproof, windproof and enough reflective to be perfect on the bike!
The Women’s Velez Adventure is designed to be used for a wide range of outdoor activities, including walking, cycling, climbing and snow sports. Full directional waterproof performance gives weather protection and perspiration removal and is combined with excellent ventilation via Páramo’s unique front twin zip design. A roll-away hood with wired peak plus generous easy access pockets enhance its suitability for a broad spectrum of activities.
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.
