Paramo Bentu Windproof Jacket - Moss


Paramo Bentu Windproof Jacket - Moss


Brand: Paramo
Weight: 420 g         4 reviews
The Paramo Bentu Windproof Jacket is designed for anyone who enjoys taking part in outdoor activities all year round. If you are out walking in summer, you need something breathable to protect you from wind and light showers, without making you overheat.

The Bentu Windproof Jacket provides wind and water resistant protection in the warmer months. This versatile durable jacket is also designed to combine with the Paramo Bentu Fleece Jacket to form a warm waterproof system for use all year round.

This jacket is made from Nikwax® Windproof, which cuts wind chill and insulates but still provides excellent moisture vapour transfer, allowing your perspiration to escape. The fabric is light but very durable and UV resistant so providing excellent protection in all environments. The use of Analogy Pump Liner in this garment across the hood and shoulders provides excellent water shedding and weather protection.

If you maintain your jacket with Nikwax waterproofing products, it will also deflect the rain. It can be worn alone, or combined with Paramo Fleece to create a fully directional waterproof system, equivalent to a standard waterproof jacket.

      Paramo doing what it does, classic design, great colour and beautifully manufactured, not yet put it to the test, so can't really rate its waterproof or windproof properties. Otherwise it is a cracking bit of kit.

      This review is combined with the previous purchase of the Bentu Fleece. I am a big fan of the Paramo gear, especially my Velez Smock but I find that because I run quite warm the Velez has limited use to temperatures below 8/10c. The Bentu combo was purchased to cover those temperatures over 10c, but surprisingly works well in temperatures across the range. I recently travelled to New Zealand for a wedding, stopping at Vancouver on the way out and San Francisco on the way back. I figured that the Bentu combo was likely to be best option for the range in weather I was likely to encounter. Vancouver was cold, temperatures from -2c and snow to 6c with showers. The Bentu combo was combined with different base layers and I was warm, comfortable and dry throughout my stay. In New Zealand the weather varied from traditional summer hot and dry weather, when the shell remained in my pack, to a cyclonic storm where temperatures dropped to around 8/10c coupled with 100mph winds and 18” plus rain falling in less than 24 hours. I have to say that during the worst weather, I stayed indoor, but I did venture out before and after the worst weather. My top half under the combo remained dry, whereas my DWR treated trousers where completely waterlogged. In San Francisco weather ranged from warm and dry to wet and windy, where both layers came into use at varying times and I remained comfortable throughout. As a combination the Paramo Bentu works really well covering temperatures from -2c to 20c, it shock off the worst of the rain really well. The only downside I encountered was really bad static when the shell was taken off the fleece!

      Excellent product. Feels good quality. Showers have beaded off but no chance to see how it performs in a downpour. Intend to combine it with my old Taiga fleece jacket for rainy days. No condensation problem in warm drizzly days.

      Very comfortable jacket that provides good insulation from the wind (not used it in the rain as yet). Plenty of stowage pockets, have yet to determine how to stow away the hood when not required, other than that very pleased with purchase.
