Paramo Bentu Fleece Jacket Duology Soft Shell - Men's

Water-repellent, directional fleece jacket which can combine with the Bentu Windproof to keep you warm and dry. Versatile option for all walking and nature activities. The Bentu fleece jacket has been updated with light stretch for a contoured fit with ease of movement.

The Bentu Fleece uses Using Nikwax® Fleece fabric for weather protection against mist and drizzle. Designed to work in conjunction with the Bentu Windproof to create a versatile Nikwax®​ Duology Waterproof System, give you waterproof performance if the weather deteriorates, or in cooler conditions. Equally, it forms an effective midlayer for extra insulation under an Paramo Analogy® waterproof jacket in cold conditions, making it a versatile and useful year-round fleece.

Nikwax®​ Duology waterproof system: the new 3-season outdoor combination. The fleece and windproof two piece system is designed to be combined, perfect while you're active in a variety of conditions.

Choose a Bentu Fleece for its exceptional versatility - The Bentu Fleece is great worn alone, providing both insulation and water resistance. However, it is also designed to combine with the Bentu windproof to give full waterproofing when required. The generous pocketing including map-sized secure storage, makes this a great fleece for walkers and nature-watchers. Choose this garment for its ability to adapt to the widest possible range of conditions and activities on the hill.

Review: “Fantastic fit and great premium feel. In my opinion, calling this a fleece massively undersells it...  Much more comfortable, very water-resistant, lighter, and smaller. Comparing it to a more modern technical soft shell is the way to look at this. Very soft and comfy to wear.  Slightly stretchy and hugs your figure well, which ensures warmth when worn. It has a couple of great pockets too, including a chest pocket that’s nicely hidden away.”

Review: “As a keen Nordic walker and hill climber who gets hot and sweaty as soon as I get moving, most outdoor gear has been uncomfortable. I bought the Bentu Fleece and Windproof Jackets and have found the perfect system. So light and versatile.”

Review: “The fleece is amazing on its own, even in freezing conditions on the way to Uhuru Peak, Kilimanjaro. I've just added the windproof and already loving the flexibility this combination provides. Great kit, highly recommended!“

Review: “Duology system is Paramo’s take on making an Analogy jackets more flexible, and easy to use in varying conditions."

Nikwax®​ Fleece - Nikwax Fleece is both water-repellent and wind resistant, plus it is Directional – actively pushing liquid water away from the body to keep the wearer dry. The fleece fabric traps still air to keep the wearer warm. Nikwax® Fleece+ is a high loft, highly insulating fabric that provides excellent directionality and extra warmth. Combined with a Nikwax Windproof outer to deflect raindrops, Nikwax Fleece will provide full weatherproof protection, working well in all temperatures and humidity conditions.

  • Traps still air giving superior insulation to keep you warm.
  • Moves water away from the wearer, allowing perspiration to escape for comfort in all conditions
  • Provides water-repellency which can be easily renewed for the lifetime of the garment with Nikwax PFC free aftercare.
  • Combined with a Nikwax Windproof outer layer, an equivalent to an Analogy waterproof is achieved, keeping the wearer dry from precipitation and removing perspiration.
  • Continues to work just as effectively even in high humidity or very cold conditions.
  • The fabric is soft, cosy and hard-wearing.

Nikwax®​ Duology Waterproof System - The Nikwax Duology innovation goes one step further by combining two garments (layers) to form one system – ensuring an even broader range of protection, with no extra weight. The top layer consists of a Nikwax Duology Windproof, which is a tightly woven 100% polyester microfibre treated with Nikwax PFC-free Durable Water Repellency (DWR). Its primary function is to keep out the wind, of course, and to deflect rain, although it also protects from the sun and biting insects. The second, inner, layer consists of a Nikwax Duology Fleece, also treated with Nikwax PFC-free DWR, which provides insulation and directs moisture away from the body.

  • Worn alone, these layers are fully appropriate (especially in the summer months), but when combined, the Windproof enhances the insulation of the Fleece and the Fleece enhances the water repellency of the Windproof. The Duology system can withstand an impressive 4 hours of simulated rainfall in the Leeds University Rain Room and will keep its wearer warm and dry on a cold, wet day.
  • Ultimately, Nikwax Duology is an additional Páramo waterproof system for outdoor enthusiasts and workers. It is adaptable to the changing – and frequently unreliable – seasons, and the escalating issue of climate instability. In the ‘old days’ we could predict fairly accurately when winter or summer would begin and end, however, it is not uncommon now to experience warm weather in December and to see the mercury plunge in March. Thus, in return for combining a Nikwax Duology Windproof and Fleece, you are guaranteeing adaptability on your adventures.
  • Nikwax Duology is quiet, soft, puncture tolerant, field repairable and is free of PFCs and other persistent chemicals of concern. The waterproof performance is indefinitely renewable with Nikwax Aftercare giving a longer wear life, with lower environmental impact. All Nikwax Duology fabrics are recyclable.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Bentu Fleece Jacket?

  • When used on its own, the Bentu Fleece is ideal protection against mist and drizzle, or for additional insulation on summer evenings.
  • Combined with the Bentu Windproof, it will give waterproof and insulating performance if the weather deteriorates, or in cooler conditions.
  • Equally, it forms an effective midlayer for extra insulation under an Analogy® waterproof jacket in cold conditions, making it a versatile and useful year-round fleece.

How do I care for my Páramo Fleece Jacket?​

  • This item works best if it is water repellent.
  • Regularly wash it with Nikwax Tech Wash® to remove dirt and revive its water repellency. If, after washing, the outer fabric absorbs water (it does not run off in beads) it is time to reproof your garment with Nikwax TX.Direct®.
  • Water repellency can be inhibited by dirt and residues left by normal washing detergents. It is therefore important to always use a soap based product such as Nikwax Tech Wash to clean your item and revive water repellency.

What if I damage my Nikwax® Fleece?

  • Simple repairs can often be done with a needle and thread without compromising the performance of your Páramo gear.
  • If you seriously damage a garment, you can send it back to Páramo and request a quote for having it mended – most damage can be repaired!

Ethics & Environment

  • Páramo clothing does not rely on hazardous fluorocarbon (PFC) treatments in its finishing or aftercare processes.
  • Nikwax Duology fabrics are uniquely suited to recycling as they avoid the need for mixed materials, membranes or taped seams. Instead, they use 100% polyester, which unlike many materials, can be broken down and reformed into new, high quality fibres.
  • This garment is made in Colombia by the charitable Miquelina Foundation. It is member of the World Fair Trade Organization. Guaranteed Fair Trade.
  • Fully recyclable through Páramo.
