Cambia Micro Shorts are for active outdoor people who do energetic activities.

If you participate in high energy activities such as cycling, running, climbing or mountain walking, you need to manage the sweat you produce to stay dry and comfortable. Damp underwear, especially cotton, is clingy and restrictive, and will make you feel cold when you stop moving.

The fast-wicking, directional Parameta T+ fabric rapidly transports moisture away from the body to keep you dry and comfortable. The micro shorts’ design and construction makes them easy to move in without restriction.


Cambia Micro Shorts have flat seams and stretch for comfort

  • Freedom of movement provided by a contoured, yet stretchy design.
  • Flat seams prevent rubbing and irritation during exercise.


Parameta T+ is fast wicking and provides exceptional comfort.

Parameta T Plus
It is a rapid-drying, directional fabric that spreads moisture laterally to speed up evaporation of perspiration.

The textured, open face fabric surface is worn next to your skin, directing water away so you feel dry, but still evaporating excess water effectively.

Choose Cambia Micro Shorts because of their efficient moisture management next to the skin…

The Cambia Micro Shorts use high-wicking Parameta T+ fabric to create the perfect base for your directional clothing system. Moisture is continually directed away from the body to be picked up and transported outwards by your outer directional layers. The fast-drying, stretchy micro shorts are constructed with flat seams to give optimum comfort and freedom of movement.

You can expect excellent wicking performance and a high level of comfort from the Cambia Micro Shorts.


How will your Páramo® underwear outperform other underwear?

Cotton underwear will hang onto moisture and you will potentially feel uncomfortably cold and damp from perspiration during and after activity.

Most other technical underwear products only move moisture laterally across the fabric and don’t move it from one fabric face to the other, so won’t push moisture away from your body and as a result you’ll feel colder and less comfortable.

Páramo’s Parameta T+ underwear will give you greater comfort, keeping moisture away from your body when you need to stay dry.

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

The Cambia Micro Shorts can be used in any weather conditions, thanks to the nature of the Parameta T+ fabric.

In hot conditions, the fast wicking properties aid evaporation of sweat to provide cooling.

In cold conditions, when you’re wearing more layers, any liquid sweat or condensation is directed away from your body to protect your insulating air layer.

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

The Parameta T+ fabric makes it an ideal base for your directional clothing system. It will allow your directional Parameta A or Parameta G baselayers to manage any perspiration generated during your outdoor activities, which in turn can be directed away by your chosen directional outer layer – a Nikwax Analogy Waterproof, a Nikwax Windproof, Nikwax Windproof Denim or Nikwax Fleece.

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.
