A waterproof system that does not utilise a membrane! Believe it or not, the Nikwax Analogy Pump liner is actually based on the action of a mammal’s fur such as an otter – pushing water away from the surface of your skin to protect you from rain, Condensation, and sweat while maintaining efficient insulation.
You have a 2-layer system with an outer layer of closely woven polyester which is treated with Nikwax, it provides windproofing and durable water-repellence. The second layer is your pump liner, which draws water away from you such as sweat and condensation. Best combined with a moisture-wicking base layer, this system is wonderfully comfortable, quiet, and easy to move in. We have a more comprehensive guide to how Paramo is different on our blog.
