Paramo Torres Alturo Jacket
The Torres Alturo Jacket is ideal for high mountain activities which involve sustained low temperatures.
During alpine and winter activities in prolonged cold temperatures, you need fast insulation which is lightweight, packable and offers maximum warmth even when wet. Your outerwear should not interfere with a climbing harness or helmet.
The Torres Alturo is sized to go over a Páramo waterproof to warm you quickly without having to remove layers. It delivers excellent warmth-for-weight and packs into its own internal pocket. The hood is sized to fit over a helmet and the handwarming pockets are accessible while wearing a harness.
The Torres Alturo Jacket has a helmet-friendly hood, harness-friendly hand-warming pockets and a stuff pocket.
- Full head protection from a helmet-friendly, insulated, fully adjustable fixed hood with a wired peak.
- Hand-warming and storage from insulated, harness-friendly pockets.
- Easily packable within internal OS map-sized storage pocket which doubles as a stuff pocket with hanging loop for when jacket is not in use.
Nikwax Analogy® Insulator’s synthetic fill provides very effective warming even in wet conditions.
The Insulator combines Nikwax® Windproof closely woven microfibre outer with a synthetic, water-resistant fill to cut windchill and provide excellent insulation for overlayering with other Nikwax fabrics. It retains body heat very effectively to warm the body quickly and deflects the rain while providing excellent moisture vapour transfer. It packs down small, giving a high warmth to weight ratio. The fill gives a down-like feel and performance with the benefit of still working well when wet. It can be compressed in a pack without damage and washed in a home washing machine.
