The Paramo Halcon Jacket is a windproof, waterproof and breathable coat for outdoor enthusiasts, especially those who want lots of practical carrying space. In designing the Halcon Jacket, Paramo had the assistance of a number of professional wildlife cameramen and photographers, including Joe Cornish and John Aitchison - people who have taken their fair share of the brunt of British weather. As such, it is a brilliant outer layer for budding photographers, filmers and bird watchers, and can be seen on professional lensmen across the country.

Paramo Directional Clothing Systems was set up by the founder and owner of Nikwax, Nick Brown. Focusing on wearability, recovery and long life, they have created a range of clothing that is comfortable, durable, highly functional and - most importantly - weatherproof! The Halcon Jacket is a fantastic example of this.

The use of unique Nikwax Analogy fabric, combined with the Halcon's ventilation options, ensures you can maintain your comfort without taking layers on and off during your adventures. Additionally, as the performance of Analogy fabric isn't hindered by the outside temperature or humidity level, the Halcon Jacket can be used in freezing cold environments such as the Arctic. It also features a fleece-lined collar, wire-framed hood and handwarming pockets for additional comfort.

As zip-front jackets go, the Halcon is the Swiss Army knife. There are pockets for everything, including zippable hand-warmer pockets. The neck-warming collar and hood are superb and, as with all Paramo garments, the fit and finish of the fabric is impeccable. Being wind and waterproof while still highly breathable make it perfect for active use in our weather, while the generous cut gives ample space for an insulating layer while waiting for the light to change on a winter day. A fantastic all-rounder. - Joe Cornish, Landscape Photographer

  Can't praise this jacket highly enough, it is my go to jacket. Used for hiking, dog walking, trips to the shops, everything. The colour is much darker than the photograph shows, and much nicer. The fabric is soft and quiet, but also tough. I've found it waterproof and breathable enough for my needs, though this is always a trade off with any garment. It has more pockets than you will ever need, the lined hand warmer side pockets are a nice touch. The one pull waist drawcord is also well designed and I use that a lot to aid ventilation. All in all an excellent jacket.

  I spent ages comparing coats and am very happy with this one. Certainly on the pricy side, I hope it will last 20 years like my previous coat did. The fabric is lighter than I expected but so far is indeed been waterproof and surprisingly warm. I love the handwarmer pockets. Pockets are good and can still access the lower ones when wearing a rucksack. Not quite as 'no rustle' as my old coat was but still much quieter than most waterproofs available.

  I purchased the jacket for the purpose of nature watching and it is admirably suitable for this purpose. The colour is a lovely shade of green and the fabric is very comfotable to wear. It keeps one warm in cool conditions when worn in conjunction with a base layer and fleece, the ample ventilation options allow you to keep cool in warmer conditions.

  I am a Paramo convert for at least the last 9 years. So having an opportunity to purchase the Halcon Jacket would be a must for hunting. It performs exactly has it should. Really pleased with it.

  This is my second paramo jacket, I have had a Velez adventure light for 6 years which I use for cycling, the Halcon is every bit as good as my other jacket, great quality, warm and very comfortable. I haven't been out in a downpour yet, but I live in Wales so shouldn't have to wait too long. I highly recommend this jacket and the service from Ray Mears Bushcraft was excellent.

  I am delighted with this jacket which I purchased as an alternative winter jacket to my Ventile smock. I have worn it for hill walking and birding, it is fantastic. It is very wind and waterproof, it was comfortable and warm in very cold windy heavy sleet/snow conditions recently. The first time I wore it was in a sustained downpour for about 3 hours and it was completely waterproof. The pockets are large, practical and well placed. The fleece lined hand warmer pockets are great. The hood is great, when it is adjusted it fits perfectly without restricting vision. Adjustment on the cuffs is good and fits well over my gloves. It also has a baffle behind the main zip which buttons closed. This is really good when it is windy ( really toasty in -4 degrees plus windchill with a Woolpower 400 mid layer underneath). I found the sizing perfect for me, I am 5'10 and 14 and a half stone, the Large size has plenty of room and fits well across my shoulders. If you are looking for a solid walking / wildlife watching jacket I highly recommend this one. Delivery from Woodlore was once again super fast (I'm beginning to wonder if items are teleported and not posted!) and service is faultless.

  Great jacket, I use it for dog walking. The hood pulls nicely around head and face with adjusters that work simply and effectively. The collar has a soft material that sits against your neck, nice touch. The arms have venting which does work, and very good adjustable cuffs. The jacket has a hem and waist adjustment which again works well cutting out draughts. The front zipper and press studs keep out the weather, but I find doing up the press studds first then the zipper a bit fiddly. All my other jackets have zipper first then press studs. The main reason I purchased this jacket was for the amount of pockets it has, these are all well thought out. The hand warmer pockets with a nice soft lining being a favourite. As for waterproofing time will tell. Water is beeding well but it should being a new jacket. I've purchased the Nikwax cleaning and proofing products, I will apply these when the jacket starts to wet out. A very well thought out jacket which I'm very happy with.

  I like to give my equipment a couple of months trial before submitting a review to get to grips with it. This jacket hasn't disappointed at all, waterproofing was tested on a terrible day, there was non stop rain with no leaks from the jacket. The material is very quiet and the pockets are very handy. The hood has good adjustments and fits well. I only have one thing with the jacket, it's very warm when walking over 4-5 miles. In minus 2 I only wear a technical t-shirt and I'm just right but I run a bit hot so probably just me. I can and will highly recommend this jacket to anyone who needs a high quality jacket for the great outdoors. The service from Woodlore is second to none, thank you.
