So a ride into Leicester for the Cycle City Workshop was a good test for my new waterproof cycling jacket. It is a Paramo Quito which I got for half price from Go Outdoors.
My trousers got absolutely waterlogged as did my socks and trainers. That not helped by the huge standing water puddles along the River Soar/Grand Union Canal on the way home.
But my top half was bone dry. Driest I have ever stayed in such heavy rain. No condensation or leaks. The hood was the most comfortable I’ve used in a long time and it formed a good seal stopping water entering around the neck.
Based on one ride, highly recommended. Especially given the bold ethical and environmental claims by Paramo.
