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

  Excellent jacket, extremely well made with well designed features for optimum comfort, soft feel and weatherproof. Very impressed. All of my office colleagues and friends have been similarly impressed by the quality.

  As a guy from The States who was looking for an all weather jacket that was not GorTex, as well as a huge fan of Ray and his Woodlore YouTube channel, I thought to visit the Woodlore shop. In doing so I was introduced to the Paramo Halcon jacket. Compared to other products, I found less than I would have like, review wise, on the web. Since Mr. Mears recommended the product, and it was on quite a sale, I took a chance. To state it mildly, I am quite pleased! This is the second Britsh product that I have purchased this year. I understand the US is a huge place with vast competition but these UK jackets are great. The quality and the design are as good as I've seen. I own North Face, Carhartt and Marmot. All of which are reputable companies but Paramo could certainly give them a run for the money. For example, the wired formable hood on the Halcon is something I've never seen. The elastic Velcro cuff design is great also but the clincher for me is the Analogy by Nixwax concept. It works great and breaths as stated. This past week it was raining and in the low 60's F, typically in those conditions in Northern California I would be quite humid and sticky in a jacket. The Halcon was great. Well done Paramo.

  Paramo make great kit. The Halcon jacket is well designed for birding or country type pursuits. My experience of Paramo external jackets is that they are better in rain than any equivalent rival goretex membrane shell type. Time will only tell on this new purchase - but so far all is good. Bushcraft ordering and delivery was excellent.

  My wife purchased this jacket for me as an early christmas present a few day's ago. I have had my eye on one for over a year but like to take my time to consider all other options before I purchase an item. In the past I have always been a Gore-Tex man, living between Berghaus and Mountain Equipment Jackets as my options for comfort and fit in the past. How wrong was I. From the moment you put this jacket on it feels like pure luxury. The stitching detail is perfect all over. Yes I checked that on arrival too. The amount of pockets are a god send for me to fill with camera accessories, without having to carry my backpack. The only item on my back from now on will be my tripod. What I have been blown away with, is how warm it keeps you and that is with only a t-shirt on at +3 degrees in the middle of the night. ( Poor dog was dragged out for a walk just so I could try it ). Overall a cracking jacket and the speed of delivery was fantastic.

  This is the first Paramo item I've bought, mainly as I've been disappointed with the performance of gore-tex jackets, and have to say, I'm a convert already. It's a relatively heavy jacket but does what its meant to, that is, keeps you warm, dry, able to carry lots of stuff, and what's more is quiet. Would thoroughly recommend.

  Superb service from Woodlore - item dispatched quickly and received as expected. The coat is of excellent quality, exteremly well made with all the functional specs you might want. I have only worn it in light rain so far but it appears waterproof and is comfortable to wear.

  I needed to purchase a garment that would resist all severe weather conditions, without breaking the bank, and have at least 15 years of wear. When the Paramo arrived (next day from ordering!) the quality and battleship build jumped out at me. I reckon to have as much knowledge as Ray Mears on clothing and because of this I know the Halcon will be my trusted friend for a couple of decades! Regards to Woodlore; they know that in supplying top notch gear like this it means that one will not require similar for years to come. When buying what may appear expensive clothing, try to envisage how much longer garments will last compared to cheaper, not-so-well-made gear and work out an average annual cost. What I paid for the Paramo Halcon over let's say 15 years works out at about £18 per year, about 35p per week! Brilliant value.
