The Cambia Tshirt is ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities, especially high energy activities or in warmer conditions.

When active outdoors, you need to manage your sweat to stay dry and comfortable, even when you stop moving. In hot conditions or working hard, you need maximum cooling; in cooler conditions you need less. Sun protection is beneficial too.

Parameta T+ fabric provides UV protection (SPF 25+ equivalent) and wicks moisture laterally to reduce pooling and enhance evaporation and cooling when needed. The fabric also moves moisture from one face to the other, which, when directed away from your body, offers greater insulation.


This Cambia Tshirt is designed to offer reversibility, has generously cut short sleeves and a simple round neck.

  • Designed to be reversible to provide variable cooling. Flat seams ensure it is comfortable whichever way out it is worn.
  • Generously cut short sleeves allow maximum cooling.
  • The simple round neck works well when worn under other layers.


Parameta® T+’s reversibility gives it exceptional versatility for baselayers.

Parameta T Plus
It is a rapid-drying, directional, reversible fabric that spreads moisture laterally to speed up evaporation of perspiration. Because the two faces of the fabric behave differently, by reversing a Parameta T+ shirt you can make it cooler or warmer.

When working hard in warmer conditions, the smooth water-attracting face of the fabric is worn next to your skin, holding water close to your skin to evaporate and cool you. For cooler conditions, the textured, more open face is worn next to your skin, directing water away so you feel dry, but still evaporating excess water effectively.

  1. Reversibility means you get two Tshirts for the weight and price of one.
    • The smooth fabric face worn next to the skin reduces pooling of perspiration to eliminate cold spots after exercise. Where the two faces of the fabric are different shades, this is the lighter coloured face.
    • The textured, honeycomb or darker face of the fabric provides ‘dry’ comfort in cooler conditions.
  2. Increased comfort through flat seams to avoid chafing whichever way out the baselayer is worn.
  3. Generously cut short sleeves for efficient cooling.
  4. Simple round neck is comfortable under other layers.
  5. Soft, stretchy fabric allows complete freedom of movement.
  6. Exceptionally lightweight and rapid drying, ideal for travel and expedition use.

Choose a Cambia Tshirt for its versatility …

The Cambia uses reversible Parameta T+ fabric so you can choose the level of cooling you need for your activities and the conditions. Worn one way, moisture is held close to your skin and spread laterally for fast evaporation and cooling. Worn the other way, it directs moisture away from you, maintaining an insulating dry ‘gap’.

The simple, round neck design works well worn alone or under other layers. The generous short sleeves allow efficient cooling.

From the Cambia Tshirt you can expect excellent wicking and a high comfort level.


How will your Páramo® baselayer outperform other wicking baselayers?

Most other technical baselayers only move moisture laterally across the fabric, and don’t move it from one fabric face to the other. Therefore they are not reversible, and only offer one level of cooling. Furthermore, when worn under a waterproof garment where condensation is a possibility, they won’t push moisture away from your body and as a result you’ll feel colder and less comfortable.

Páramo’s Parameta T+ baselayers give more versatile cooling than its competitors’, and also help keep moisture away from your body when you need to stay dry.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Cambia Tshirt?

Because the Parameta T+ fabric is reversible and offers two levels of cooling, it can be worn in a wide range of conditions.

For high energy activities, it may be sufficient all year round, combined with a windproof or waterproof when necessary, with the fabric face of the Tshirt chosen to deliver greater or lesser cooling.

For less active pursuits, in colder conditions, Parameta G Grid baselayers will provide more insulation.

Which garments should I use with my Parameta® T+ baselayer to get optimum performance?

The Parameta T+ fabric makes it ideal for use underneath garments made from Nikwax Windproof or Analogy Waterproof fabrics.

When used with a Nikwax Windproof, its rapid wicking and minimum insulation makes it a great combination for warmer months, or high exertion activity such as running or cycling. This will offer enough rain resistance for light showers.

When used with an Analogy Waterproof and worn with the open face next to your skin, Parameta T+ fabric pushes moisture away from your body, complementing the action of Nikwax Analogy Waterproof garments. In combination, these will give outstanding waterproofing, directionality and, ultimately, comfort in wet conditions.


How do I look after this Páramo item?

This item works best if washed using one of Nikwax’s synthetic baselayer products such as BaseWash® or BaseFresh®. Unlike standard washing detergents, these products enhance the wicking performance of your kit and prevent odour build up.
