Just as mammals grow a thicker coat in winter, so the Torres Unisex trousers use Nikwax Analogy Insulator technology to provide extra insulation when you need it. They are generously sized and comfortable enough to be worn on their own, but the simple 'zip off' construction means you can wear them over your Paramo trousers, taking them on or off without having to sit down or take your feet off the ground. The Torres Unisex Trousers are lightweight and insulated which provides fast block insulation and water repellency in extreme or prolonged cold and wet, packing down small when not needed. The moisture-repellent, synthetic 100g fill delivers a high warmth-for-weight ratio with a down-like feel and performance that still warms you even when wet.
Nikwax Analogy Insulator provides excellent heat retention while allowing moisture vapour transfer and directing water away from the body. It consists of:
- Nikwax's closely woven microfibre outer which is windproof and deflects water.
- A synthetic water-resistant fill which retains body heat to warm the body quickly and resists water ingress.
- A breathable silky lining which allows water to continue to escape and slips easily over other layers
Ideal for any activity which could involve periods of sustained low temperatures, such as a gun, dog trainer, beater or picker-up!
- Innovative and simple “zip off’’’ construction with full length side zips with internal storm flaps, allows trousers to be put on or taken off without taking one’s feet off the ground, sitting down or removing footwear. See video in the Overview section.
- Webbing belt with waistband tunnel plus hook and loop tabs to secure.
- Articulated knees ensure movement is not curtailed.
- Trousers cut to fit over a climbing harness.
- Overlayering prevents loss of body heat during changes and promotes drying of undergarments.
- Effective in wet and windy weather as well as extreme cold, providing good insulation even when saturated.
- Very practical in bivouac and survival situations as mobility is not compromised by insulation (unlike survival bags etc).
- Light outer fabric with 100g synthetic fill delivers low bulk, so trousers are easily compressed for carrying in a pack.
- Treat with Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In® to optimise wet weather performance.
