OVERVIEW

The Velez Adventure Trousers are for very active outdoor people who enjoy a range of outdoor activities.

If you are going out in changeable conditions, you face the hassle of having to put on waterproof trousers if the weather deteriorates. These are often carried separately, as they are too noisy, sweaty and uncomfortable to wear all the time.

The Velez Adventure Trousers can be worn comfortably all day next to skin, even if it is not raining. The highly breathable and directional Nikwax Analogy® fabric combines with ventilation to deliver optimum comfort.

 

The Velez Adventure Trousers have great ventilation freedom of movement and ankle adjustment.

  • Easy and rapid temperature adjustment when on the move provided by discreet thigh zips with internal storm flaps.
  • Great freedom of movement from excellent knee and leg articulation.
  • Adaptable for different activities thanks to ankle adjustment with hook and loop fastening.

 

Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.

Analogy Waterproof
This means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.

It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.

In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.

Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.

To understand the difference between directionality and breathability, you can read more here.

  1. Full weather protection provided by Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof Fabric System.
  2. Easy and rapid temperature adjustment provided by thigh vents with internal storm flaps.
  3. Ankle adjustment with hook and loop fastening – ideal for adapting to a range of activities.
  4. Unrestricted leg movement due to excellent knee and leg articulation.
  5. Comfortable and adjustable fit provided by elasticated waist secured by a belt.
  6. Hand-warming and storage from two external hip pockets with zip closure.

Choose Velez Adventure Trousers for all day comfort in wet OR dry conditions.

The Velez Adventure trousers combine the Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof system with good ventilation, and an efficient fit that still allows great freedom of movement for different activities. These features enable you to put the trousers on next to skin at the start of the day and then forget about them. The thigh ventilation zips give good climate control, giving versatility in the temperatures and exertion levels you can be comfortable in.

From the Velez Adventures you can expect outstanding resistance to rain and condensation removal, versatility in temperature control, and an excellent performance to weight ratio.

 

How will your Páramo® garment outperform breathable membranes?

Nikwax Analogy fabrics are not only extremely breathable, they are directional too. This means that water, both liquid and vapour, is directed outwards, ensuring your insulation remains protected.

Although breathable membranes allow moisture vapour to pass through them, they do nothing to transport liquid water. Therefore, when the production of sweat exceeds the Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate, or when the external temperatures drop, condensation (the change of water from vapour to liquid) will build up in breathable membranes.

Nikwax Analogy is so durable you could puncture a Páramo waterproof with pins, remove them, and still stay dry in the rain! Unlike coated or membrane-based garments, our directional clothing can be easily repaired, without compromising future performance.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Velez Adventure Trousers?

Your Velez Jacket has been tested at the Leeds University Rain Room to resist at least 4 hours of steady rain. Therefore you can use them throughout the year in a temperate climate, and even at high altitude.

They are great for changeable conditions, because they are comfortable enough to wear all day. If it starts to rain heavily, you can just carry on going, without having to stop and put on something else. The fabric system is highly breathable and directional, which combined with the thigh vents means these trousers can be worn in warmer conditions than conventional “shell” trousers.

Which garments should I wear with my Nikwax Analogy Waterproof for optimum performance?

We recommend using our Parameta® T+, Parameta T, or Parameta G baselayers underneath your Nikwax Analogy clothing.

The Parameta T+ is a reversible, lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric, which offers two levels of cooling. It is asymmetrical and wicking, directing water from one fabric face to the other, as well as rapidly spreading moisture to speed up evaporation and, therefore, cooling.

Parameta T is a lightweight and stretchy polyester fabric. It wicks effectively to spread perspiration and dry quickly, providing light insulation in cooler conditions. Its soft feel is very comfortable against the skin, even when worn for prolonged periods.

Parameta G directional polyester fabric can provide either cooling or insulation, as needed. Its raised grid pattern traps air for insulation when covered with another layer. However, worn alone, or exposed through a garment vent, it allows air to pass through it and cool you down.

In extremely cold conditions, our Nikwax Analogy Insulator garments can be worn over your waterproof clothing. This is useful when stopping, or setting up camp at the end of the day.
