Paramo Velez Adventure Smock 2021 - Men's

The Velez Adventure provides all the multi-activity features of the best-selling Velez Smock but comes with a FIXED roll-away hood, as requested by competition and race entrants where this feature is a requirement to guarantee protection in all weather conditions.

Full directional waterproof performance gives weather protection and perspiration removal and is combined with excellent ventilation via Páramo’s unique front twin zip design.

The Velez Adventure Smock is designed to be used for a wide range of outdoor activities, including walking, cycling, climbing and snow sports. A roll-away hood with wired peak plus generous easy access pockets enhance its suitability for a broad spectrum of activities.

The Velez Adventure Smock uses the Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof fabric system, with features designed to enhance the excellent weatherproofing and pockets sized and sited with outdoor activities in mind.

A new version is available here

Fit Tip: The Paramo Velez Adventure smocks have looser fitting. We recommend to size down if you are close to the next size down: In doubt, best to go down to the next smaller size than the size chart suggests.


  • Excellent field of vision and protection provided by fixed hood – fully adjustable, wired and roll-away. 
  • Fully articulated shoulders and elbows for maximum freedom of movement and optimum fit. 
  • Two-way twin reversed zip design with inner, poppered baffles for maximum temperature control. 
  • Cropped front for maximum freedom of movement. 
  • Drop tail for maximum protection with draw-cord. 
  • High collar with central, single-hand adjustment to prevent wind, rain and snow entering the neck area. 
  • Reflective piping (front and back) for maximum visibility. 
  • Easy adjust velcro cuffs with bite tab. 
  • Double-layer lining either side of spine and on shoulders, for technical rucksack use. 
  • Single hand adjustment throughout. 
  • 2 Pockets:
    • Large ‘dry’ zipped front pocket for OS maps, snacks, compass, etc.
    • Inner ‘dry’, zipped pocket for storage and hand-warming – fits OS map.
  • Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.
    • This means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.
    • It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.
    • In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.
    • Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Velez Adventure Smock?

  • The Velez Adventure Smock has been tested to resist at least 4 hours of intense rain; so you can use it throughout the year in cold or wet conditions.
  • Because the fabric system offers significant insulation, this is not the best garment to deal with heavy showers in very hot conditions. In that case we would recommend a Nikwax Windproof, perhaps combined with one of our Parameta T+ baselayers, to optimise breathability and cooling.

How do I care for my Páramo waterproof?​

  • 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®.
  • If your waterproof picks up a contamination which cannot be removed in a normal wash, Páramo can professionally wash and reproof it for you.

What if I damage my Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof clothing?

  • 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 Analogy fabric systems 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.
