Nikwax Analogy® is more than just breathable, it is directional, moving liquid water
Nikwax Analogy Waterproof FabricConventional breathable membrane waterproof fabrics fail because they cannot remove all of the sweat we produce when we are working hard, especially in cold and wet conditions. Therefore condensation and icing are well known problems experienced with membrane rainwear. Nikwax Analogy overcomes these problems because it is not only breathable, but also directional. The Analogy fabric system directs condensation and perspiration away from the body, where it can safely drain away.
How will your Páramo® outperform breathable membrane garments?
Nikwax Analogy fabric is not only very breathable, but also directional. It directs liquid water as well as water vapour to the outside, protecting your insulation.
Although breathable membranes pass moisture vapour through them, they cannot transport liquid water. Thus if sweat production exceeds moisture vapour transfer, condensation builds up, soaking inner clothing.
Nikwax Analogy garments work better for high activity, and in cold or humid conditions, removing all sweat and condensation.
Membranes or laminate waterproofs are often noisy and inflexible. As Analogy fabric does not use a membrane or laminate layer to keep you dry, it is soft and rustle-free.
Excellent field of vision, fine adjustment and complete weather protection provided by fully adjustable, roll-away hood with wired peak.
Maximum freedom of movement and increased comfort provided by articulated shoulders and sleeves.
Increased comfort and protection when load carrying provided by reinforced, double layer shoulder construction.
Multi-adjust cuff design allows sleeves to be rolled up for cooling.
Excellent weather protection in all conditions from our unique 2" drip skirt and scooped tail.
Two-way front zip and pocket zips protected by outer poppered storm flaps.
Temperature control provided by waist and hem drawcord pulls, which help eliminate rucking when load carrying.
Handwarming and storage from two ‘dry’ hip pockets.
