OVERVIEW

The Alondra Traveller provides carrying space during warm weather activities including exploring and sightseeing, nature watching and photography.

Such activities in warm weather need clothing that protects from the sun, wind and showers, is robust, and allows essential equipment to be carried securely.

If treated with Nikwax CottonProof, Nikwax Cotton+ is a quick-drying fabric well-suited to providing protection and durability. Through careful design, significant weight can be transported without discomfort and items easily accessed without disruption to wildlife.

 

The Alondra Traveller has plentiful pockets, is designed for comfortable load-carrying and for freedom of movement.

  • Excellent, easily accessible storage from 10 well-placed pockets, which allow equipment to be organised, transported and easily accessed.
  • Careful engineering ensures the weight of equipment is well distributed across the padded shoulders for comfort.
  • Freedom of movement due to articulation in the arms and shoulders, and poppered side slits for sitting and striding.

 

Nikwax Cotton+ is a tough yet lightweight fabric that provides sun and wind protection.

Cotton Plus
Nikwax Cotton+ is a blend of cotton with synthetic fibres. By combining the best properties of both fibres, Nikwax Cotton+ offers the comfort and durability of cotton with the lightweight, fast drying characteristics of a modern synthetic. The close weave of these fibres provides excellent protection from the wind and combines with the fibre properties to block harmful UV rays (UPF 50+).

To enhance the performance of the fabric, Páramo recommends washing your Cotton+ garment with Nikwax Cotton Proof after cleaning it with Nikwax Tech Wash®. This will reduce the water absorbency and speed up the drying time of the fabric.

Choose the Alondra Traveller for warm weather load carrying…

The Alondra Traveller uses rugged and protective Nikwax Cotton+ fabric, which is cool, lightweight and quick-drying, when treated with Nikwax CottonProof. The 10 pockets provide a huge amount of carrying space combined with a design which minimises discomfort when fully loaded and still allows full movement.

So expect warm weather protection coupled with generous and comfortable load carrying.

 

How will my Páramo Cotton+ garments outperform other travel outer wear?

The Nikwax Cotton+ fabric used for Páramo’s travel jackets and gilets provides superior performance for warm weather outerwear. The blend of cotton with modern synthetics provides the best qualities of both fabrics. More lightweight and fast-drying than many other comparable garments, they are tough, UV protective and highly wind resistant — ideal for load carrying in warm conditions.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Alondra Traveller?

When treated with Nikwax CottonProof, the Cotton+ fabric will dry quickly after showers. It provides lightweight wind and sun protection, so is ideal for warm weather activities.

Because the fabric is not fully waterproof, this is not the best garment for heavy rain. For this we recommend a Nikwax Analogy® waterproof in cooler conditions or, in warm environments, a Nikwax Windproof (including the Páramo Poncho), combined with a Parameta T+ baselayer to optimise breathability and cooling.

Which garments should I use with my Nikwax Cotton+ garment to get optimum performance?

Nikwax Cotton+ is a lightweight, fast-drying fabric, providing protection from the wind, harmful UV rays and biting insects. It is designed to work in warmer conditions and does not offer any significant insulation.

It is particularly effective when combined with our ultra-cooling, high wicking Parameta® A travel shirts.

Alternatively it can be combined with any of our wicking baselayers using Parameta T, T+ or G.
