Páramo, Elliot Brown Watches and Mountain Rescue

Those who have ever pushed themselves that little bit too far, or have experienced misadventure whilst out on the hill, remain indebted to the Search & Rescue community for their invaluable outdoor expertise. Rescue teams grew from a tradition of self-help amongst the mountain and walking fraternities and a willingness of local communities to assist in the event of mountain accidents. Needless to say, Páramo and Elliot Brown Watches are extremely proud of the Mountain Rescue partnerships they have forged over the years.

For over 25 years, Páramo has been the leading supplier of weather protection for UK Mountain Rescue teams. They may not be high, but British mountains are well known for their potentially treacherous weather conditions – cloud and rain can engulf mountaintops in minutes, making navigation extremely difficult and dangerous.

Páramo waterproofs are revolutionary, using unique Nikwax® Analogy® Directional Textiles that mimic mammals’ methods of temperature control and waterproofing to keep Mountain Rescue volunteers safe, warm and dry in the worst weather conditions.

I was introduced to Páramo several decades ago by others in Mountain Rescue. Their outer garments have provided good service despite the extremes of weather in Snowdonia. The garments are well designed, a good fit, functional and well made. Chris Lloyd, Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue

Mountain Rescue England & Wales and Elliott Brown Watches

As people who live for hills and trails, it was a goal of the co-founders of British watch brand Elliot Brown, Ian Elliot and Alex Brown, to give something back to those who volunteer for Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW), selflessly keeping the outdoors safe and enjoyable - a sentiment shared with Páramo. 

Since 2015 Elliot Brown Watches has raised an impressive £21,000 for MREW through sales of its special edition MREW Canford watch, which is a reliable and robust timepiece that easily fits the criteria of the watch required on the MREW member’s kit list. Retailing at £385, 10% of the sale of each watch is donated to MREW and volunteers receive a £100 discount on confirmation of full membership.   

Exclusive Elliot Brown Watch discount for Páramo newsletter subscribers

Páramo has teamed up with Elliot Brown to offer newsletter subscribers a 20% discount on a watch from the brand’s impressive collection, including the Canford that the Special Edition Watch is based on.  Simply enter P@RAMOGU3ST at the checkout on the Elliot Brown website.*
