Fabric name: Parameta® S

Fabric name: Parameta® S

Fabric name: Parameta S

What it does: Parameta® S is a reversible, asymmetrical, wicking fabric that directs water to one face and captures still air in the other, so it can be used to cool you down or warm you up as you choose, in response to the temperature, your level of activity and your own physiology.

Key benefits:

* Specially constructed fabric so that water concentrates naturally in one face of the fabric only – the smooth face.
* As a result, it can provide protection from wind-blown mist and drizzle and recovers fast from immersion.
* Offers excellent temperature control and comfort – you can react to different temperature and activity levels depending on the way out you wear it.
* You need only one garment to fulfil the role of two – offering both value for money and less to carry or wear.

If you are working hard or are hot you need to wear the smooth face of the fabric next to your skin, which holds water close to your skin to evaporate and so keep you cool.

If you are in colder conditions or keeping still you need to wear the fleecy face of the fabric next to your skin to trap still air and keep you warm:
1. Skin surface

2. Fleecy face of the reversible fabric worn next to the skin captures air between fabric and skin, and pushes water away from the skin, in order to warm the body

3. Smooth water-attracting face of Parameta® S draws water to the outer layer away from the skin

What it does: The Nikwax Analogy® Pump Liner mimics the action of animal fur – pushing liquid water outwards to protect you from rain, condensation and perspiration, while protecting your insulation. This is combined with a Directional microfibre outer to deflect wind and rain.

Key Benefits


* Two layer construction traps still air giving superior insulation to keep you warm.
* Outer layer provides Directional water-repellency while the Pump Liner actively pushes liquid moisture away from the body keeping you dry from precipitation, perspiration and condensation.
* Continues to work just as effectively even in high humidity or very cold conditions.
* Water-repellency can be easily renewed for the lifetime of the garment with Nikwax Aftercare.
* The fabric is soft, strong, silent and durable.

1. Skin surface

2. Parameta® S is shown here worn next to the skin, drawing water away to keep you dry.

3. Nikwax Analogy Pump Liner pumps water away from the body.

4. Closely woven microfibre outer provides windproofing and Nikwax durable water-repellency. Air is trapped between Pump Liner and outer to give insulation.

5. Wind and rain is deflected away from the body while perspiration and condensation as liquid water or water vapour can escape.
