Paramo Men’s Alta 3 Jacket-Review.

Paramo Men’s Alta 3 Jacket, weight 805g this is a updated version of the Alta 2 and boy did it need it, alot better jacket. Ideal for all sorts of activities like low land walking, hills, and mountains. Hard wearing and designed for the wildest places. What l  like about this jacket is all the pockets are waterproof.  Hand warming pockets, two chest pockets, one with a clip that comes with the jacket to attach your compass and the left side pocket for OS map. Internal pocket big enough for a map and phone. Fully wired hood, adjusters back and front, waist pull cords, they just finish at the sides but good enough to draw the waist in, with draw pulls on the bottom of the jacket to close around the bum to keep the chill from creeping up your back. Two way zip with popers to hold the jacket togeather when the main zip is open. Vent zips on your arms which are mess backed to cool you down. Internal rapid drying pump liner reinforced in the centre of the back and shoulders. Quick fastening cuff that can be pulled up easily to cool off. All draw cords and zips are glove friendly. The Alta 3 jacket is the next step up from the Cascada Jacket with a closer fit.
