OVERVIEW

The Torres Alturo Jacket is ideal for high mountain activities which involve sustained low temperatures.

During alpine and winter activities in prolonged cold temperatures, you need fast insulation which is lightweight, packable and offers maximum warmth even when wet. Your outerwear should not interfere with a climbing harness or helmet.

The Torres Alturo is sized to go over a Páramo waterproof to warm you quickly without having to remove layers. It delivers excellent warmth-for-weight and packs into its own internal pocket. The hood is sized to fit over a helmet and the handwarming pockets are accessible while wearing a harness.

 

The Torres Alturo Jacket has a helmet-friendly hood, harness-friendly hand-warming pockets and a stuff pocket.

  • Full head protection from a helmet-friendly, insulated, fully adjustable fixed hood with a wired peak.
  • Hand-warming and storage from insulated, harness friendly pockets.
  • Easily packable within internal OS map-sized storage pocket which doubles as a stuff pocket with hanging loop for when jacket is not in use.

 

Nikwax Analogy Insulator’s synthetic fill provides very effective warming even in wet conditions.

Analogy Insulator
The Insulator combines Nikwax Windproof closely woven microfibre outer with a synthetic, water-resistant fill to cut windchill and provide excellent insulation for overlayering with other Nikwax fabrics. It retains body heat very effectively to warm the body quickly and deflects the rain while providing excellent moisture vapour transfer. It packs down small, giving a high warmth to weight ratio. The fill gives a down-like feel and performance with the benefit of still working well when wet. It can be compressed in a pack without damage and washed in a home washing machine.

From Autumn 2020, all our synthetic fill features 100% recycled content.

The Women’s Torres Alturo Jacket provides fast block insulation and water repellency in extreme or prolonged cold and wet, packing in to its own internal pocket for easy transport.

Helmet- and harness-friendly features ensure full functionality for high mountain activities.

So expect a packable, mountain-specific, insulating overlayer that will provide extra warmth and water repellency when you need it.

 

How will my Páramo® Analogy Insulator outperform other insulation?

Páramo’s Torres Insulation is very practical. Unlike down fill, the synthetic insulator fill works just as well in the wet, can be compressed in a pack and washed in a washing machine. The excellent water-repellency can be renewed with Nikwax aftercare. The down-like feel and performance provides an excellent warmth to weight ratio, which packs down small but retains body heat very effectively for fast warmth whenever needed – without concern about getting it wet.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Torres Alturo?

Your Torres Alturo has a 133g moisture-repellent synthetic fill which insulates you even when wet. The windproof outer is treated with a Nikwax PFC free durable water repellency (DWR) to protect from rain and snow. Therefore, it is ideal for prolonged periods in cold, wet conditions.

The Torres Alturo can be worn on its own in cold temperatures, but in heavy precipitation it should be pulled over a Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof jacket for full protection.

Which garments should I use with my Nikwax Analogy Insulator to get optimum performance?

Nikwax Insulator garments are sized to be put on quickly over your jacket, fleece or baselayer to provide rapid warming when you are stationary or in very cold conditions. They can equally be worm over a baselayer if required in less cold conditions. Worn over a Nikwax Analogy Waterproof they will not inhibit its directionality, so perspiration or condensation will continue to be moved away from you. They can also be worn over wet garments without any loss of performance.

How do I care for my Páramo waterproof?

Regularly wash it with Nikwax Tech Wash® to remove dirt and revive its water repellency. If, after washing, the outer fabric absorbs water (it does not run off in beads) it is time to reproof your garment with Nikwax TX.Direct®.

If your waterproof picks up a contamination which cannot be removed in a normal wash, Páramo can professionally wash and reproof it for you. Find out more here.
