Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Trying is believing! This innovative development recognises the crucial role the arms play in the body’s temperature control. Torres Sleeves provide rapid ‘on the move’ warmth in situations where conventional mid-layers are difficult and impractical to use. The Sleeves are overlayered to give fast block insulation when needed, with an effective impact on whole body temperature. The moisture-repellent 133g synthetic fill delivers a high warmth-for-weight ratio, even when wet. Ideal garment for any activity which could involve periods of sustained low temperatures – Winter climbers and walkers, alpinists or Arctic explorers, skiers, Mountain Rescue, wildlife observers and outdoor photographers. Treat with Nikwax TX.Direct Wash-In® to optimise wet weather performance.

Why overlayering? Looking for an effective alternative to the conventional layering system which won’t expose you to the cold and wet? The Páramo approach outperforms mid-layer insulation in every way.

Traditional thinking has always been that insulating garments, especially with duvet construction, need to be kept dry and thus aren’t suitable for U.K. outer wear, but Nikwax Insulator composition and construction turns that on its head. On test, any Torres product adds as much waterproofing as it does insulation.

Páramo overlayering is the practical solution to keeping warm whether you have a chosen or an enforced stop – no need to remove a shell outer to add another layer, no need to reduce your mobility with a survival bag or similar, and no need to have to mollycoddle a down garment. Simply add synthetic block insulation over the top when you need it to keep warm and dry with minimal time and hassle.

Torres overlayers allow you to select the best garments for your day’s or week’s activity and simply add synthetic block insulation over the top when you need it to keep warm and dry with minimal time and hassle:

All Torres options use synthetic insulation which will work equally well in the wet, won’t be damaged by compression in a pack and can be washed and reproofed in a washing machine.

High quality insulation gives a down-like feel and performance, with a high warmth-per-weight ratio, retaining body heat to quickly warm the body.

Torres garments can be used over your existing system, even if it’s wet – no need to remove any clothing to add extra warmth.

Torres overlayers are lightweight but robust and durable, simple in construction but with intelligent features and helmet, harness, rope & glove friendly.

Torres overlayers not only save time but can buy you time for realistic decision making, improve your dexterity and maintain your mobility. The concept is simple and reliable, providing extra security for all outdoor enthusiasts and professionals whether for a Scottish winter or an Arctic foray.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: Medium - 40" Verified Purchase
Worked just as expected. Used them a few times now out on the hills, they allow you to stay warm on your arms from wind, rain and snow ect. Whilst not getting too warm on your body specially when going up hill. They are a bit strange to look at for those that may worry how they look. But they are easy to get on and off, light weight, and stuff down to nothing in your rucksack. They are also waterproof so can be thrown on over a raincoat. Brilliant.

Bought this to go in conjunction with a velez light and torres gillet. With the gillet its a highly versatile additional layerfor scottish winter. Bit fiddly to put on but highly effective in gale force winds and blizzards. Esential kit for my pack from now on.
