OVERVIEW

Men’s Grid Long Johns are for outdoor people who enjoy various activities in cooler conditions.

If you participate in high energy activities in cooler conditions such as mountaineering, alpine climbing or mountain walking, you need to manage your temperature and the sweat you produce to stay dry and comfortable.

When worn next to the skin, the fast-wicking, directional Parameta® G fabric rapidly transports moisture away from the skin to keep you dry and comfortable. The fleecy grid pattern traps air for insulation when covered with a windproof layer. When worn alone or if venting is used, the gaps in the grid allow air to circulate next to the skin for cooling.

 

The Men’s Grid Long Johns have an effective design, flat seams and comfortable stretch.

 

  • Great freedom of movement and performance for a wide range of activities provided by a simple, effective design.
  • Optimum comfort due to flat seams, stretch, a gentle elastic waistband and ankle cuffs to prevent legwear from riding up.
  • Convenient fly front

 

Parameta® G fabric is two fabrics in one, providing cooling when needed and insulation when needed.

Parameta G
When covered with a wind-proof the fleecy grid squares trap air and provide excellent insulation. When uncovered the gaps between the grid allow moving air to go straight to the skin, promoting cooling. The structure of this next-to-the-skin fabric optimises lateral water movement for evaporative cooling, keeping you comfortable when you are working hard.

These features provide a fabric which can keep you warm and keep you cool, and therefore is useful in the widest range of temperature conditions and activities, from high mountain climbing to gentle spring and summer walking, and all year round cycling.

Choose Long Johns because of their effective design…

The Men’s Long Johns are a stretchy, soft, next-to-skin baselayer with a simple, effective design that features a gentle elastic waistband, flat seams and ankle cuffs. Made from fast-wicking Parameta® G Material, Long Johns provide dry comfort, excellent insulation, and great freedom of movement and performance for a wide range of activities. They are also useful as sleepwear for backpacking or expeditions.

 

How will your Páramo® baselayer outperform other wicking baselayers?

Most other baselayers on the market are either thin for use in warmer conditions, or thick for use in colder conditions. This means that throughout the course of a day where temperatures or exertion levels vary, you may have to put on and take off several layers.

Páramo’s Parameta G baselayers offer more versatility, behaving like a thinner, cooler baselayer when uncovered, but like a thicker, warmer baselayer when covered with a windproof outer.

In what kind of weather conditions can I use my Long Johns?

The Long Johns provide insulation for cooler weather conditions. They are ideal beneath directional waterproof or windproof legwear to ensure total directionality from the inside.

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

This Parameta G fabric used for this garment makes it ideal to use underneath garments made from Nikwax Windproof or Analogy Waterproof fabrics. The fabric’s raised grid pattern is protected from wind, trapping air for insulation. If used with a style which offers ventilation zips, this allows you to expose areas of the Grid baselayer, providing cooling which can be easily attained without taking layers off.

Use the Grid Technic covered by Nikwax Windproof for moderate insulation and water resistance. This combination is great in warmer conditions where showers rather than heavy rain are predicted.

Use the Grid Technic covered by Nikwax Analogy Waterproof for a higher level of insulation and full waterproofing. This combination is good on colder winter days, especially if heavier rain is expected.
