Paramo Torres Sleeves TGO Review

TGO magazine carries comparative gear reviews every month and occasionally individual reviews. Space is limited in a paper magazine of course and reviews may not appear for several months. Websites don’t have space restrictions and starting today some of my reviews will appear on the TGO website (which already has hundreds of reviews that have appeared in the magazine which you can find here).

The first review is of the Paramo insulated Torres Sleeves.

  1. my feelings exactly, my intention is to buy the gilet aswell and then use that and the sleeves at the same time.
    this would increase the heating options avaliable.
    when my arms get hot i can slip out of the sleeves with my rucksack still on, and tuck em out of the way untill they are needed again.

  2. I got the old gilet free when I purchased an Aspira Smock and Salopettes. In fact, I wear it every day to work during the cold weather and it's superb. It's durable, warm, water resistant, dries quickly and the Napoleon pocket swallows my iPhone and earphones. It has a reasonably athletic fit but is loose enough to wear over a jumper/or even the Aspira smock. Odd really - I shell our over £500 on P├íramo kit and get a Torres Gilet free and it's that which I wear most...
