I have owned a Paramo Helki jacket for a few years now and find I wear it most days.
Before I got the Helki I had a lightweight Paramo jacket and found that while it was great, the lightweight fabric was not really durable enough for me.

Llangollen is a town of 3000 or so residents in North East Wales, just an hour or so from Liverpool, Manchester and the outskirts of Birmingham. If you have ever driven into North Wales on the A5 you will recognise the view as the mountains rear up and close in around you and Castle Dinas Bran rises up on it’s own hill top to your right. The valley has been carved by the River Dee, a magnet for white water kayakers, canoeists and rafters from all over the world.

This is what Clive gets up to before work on Sunday mornings.
As a kid I loved being outside.
As a kid I loved being outside. “I’m going out do my work” I would say to my parents. Then proceeded to dig in the sand pit for hours, or build another den. I had limited access to technology then, however as I moved into my teens that changed and my life was consumed by Gears of War and Call of Duty.Continue reading Staff Bio – Clive Gibney
