I've not got any opportunity to pass thru UK for the foreseeable to try for fit so its stare at pics and reviews. My last UK pass thru was February, picked up a Helki after trying medium vs large. Went Large for sleeve and body length but its too baggy really. Still hoping Paramo "get" that they need to copy the likes of Montane on dimensions.
The lack of a proper droop tail is a killer for Paramo jackets when riding as it forces to wear waterproof pants which add insulation when the jacket is already quite insulated. I been winter biking in the Quito I think for 3 years now and its perfect apart from back length.
Sent from less-drought-ridden California its rained 5 times this last month! I also changed jobs and now got a 6 mile bike each-way commute through whatever winter has coming. I currently got an eVent ShowersPass jacket (warmer rain) and Paramo Quito (colder rain). The ShowersPass I had to go "large" to get the back length which makes it a bit too baggy but baggy helps with venting which it has in abundance, my Quito is medium as when tried large it was a tent.
I been biking to work since 1985, and golly the kit is so much better now than then!
Ciclo - its in their current magazine and on their website as "soon".
What an ACTUALLY designed for cycling jacket? I remember so many tops they said good for cycling but were not due to too-short at the bag. Looking at the photos I really doubt they have actually done the right thing for cyclists which is a really long tail. Basically have to have water run right over the back of the saddle and not drip into your pants.
Sent from drought-ridden California but I have memories of rain.
