Nikwax TX.Direct

As Autumn approaches, people will start to get their lightweight waterproofs out in order to be ready for the mixed weather that the season brings. They need these garments to be breathable and repel water, so that they do not feel damp and sweaty inside when being active. Dirt and contaminants will reduce the durable water repellent coating on breathable waterproof garments, preventing moisture from escaping and eventually leading to water absorption through the outer fabric.

TX.Direct can be used safely and easily in the washing machine or by hand. Its formula leaves a flexible water repellent coating on the garment, which treats all areas and develops on air drying, therefore removing the need to tumble dry. It will maintain the breathability of the garment, ensuring moisture vapour can pass through, whilst repelling water from the outside. The user stays warm, dry and comfortable when they need it most.

Win a Páramo Velez Jacket – the ultimate lightweight, versatile, high performance waterproof jacket.

The must have jacket for high intensity outdoor activities all year round. It cleverly regulates your body temperature, keeping you warm when you need to be warm, and cool when you need to be cool, all year round.

The Velez jacket is designed for anyone who takes part in high intensity outdoor activities all year round. Making ideal for anyone who enjoys hiking, cycling, climbs or back packing in the mountains.

It’s made with Nikwax Analogy® fabric, inspired by the way animal fir works. Unlike conventional breathable membranes, it actively directs body moisture and condensation outwards and away from you, whilst protecting you from the rain on the outside. So you stay cool when you need to be and warm in cold conditions.

The Velez jacket is also loaded with clever features like thoughtfully positioned vents and pockets.

How it’s made is also typical of the no compromise, ethical approach Páramo takes to designing and producing all of its outdoor clothing.

The Velez is made by the Miquelina Foundation, Páramo’s long-term manufacturing partner, which provides vital employment to vulnerable women in Columbia and support for their families. All garments manufactured at Miquelina carry the World Fair Trade Organization Fair Trade label.

It also has PFC-free water repellency and what’s more, Páramo will recycle it for you in the future, either finding your jacket a new home, or recycling it into new fabric.

So not only will your Velez jacket keep you drier and more comfortable than a conventional waterproof, but you can feel good about wearing it too, knowing it’s been ethically made.
