Wearing appropriate base layers when you’re outdoors is super important. This help regulate temperature, wick moisture from the skin, provide warmth and sun protection as needed.

Will a synthetic or down jacket be the warmer option?
Traditionally a jacket filled with down insulation would be warmer than a similar weight synthetic insulated option. However, the latest synthetic technology is amazing and can be a better choice for damp conditions. At Paddy Pallin, we keep both styles in the range and can recommend which would be more suitable based on where you’re headed in the outdoors.
What kind of waterproof jackets does Paddy Pallin sell?
Choosing a suitable waterproof jacket can be tricky. At Paddy Pallin, we stock a wide range. From ultralightweight occasional use shells to heavy-duty 3-layer Goretex Jackets suitable for the harshest conditions you’ll encounter in the outdoors.
What is the best way to care for my men's outdoor clothing?
Caring for your adventure wardrobe is important. Most hiking and camping clothes will have a label with instructions on how to wash and care for the garment. If left unwashed, dirt and the oils from your skin will eventually damage vital features of the garment - Such as the waterproof membranes that make your shell jacket so useful. When cleaning Gore-Tex 3-layer Waterproof jackets and other waterproof fabrics, we recommend a specialised cleaner such as asNikwax Tech Wash as this will not damage the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment on the garment.
What type of material should I look for in my hiking clothes?
In general hiking, clothing will combine temperature regulation and moisture-wicking properties but also be lightweight and durable. The fabrics used are usually either a synthetic or natural fibre, or a blend of both. If you’re undertaking high-exertion activities like running and climbing mountains, moisture-wicking clothing will be essential to regulate your temperature effectively. Look for synthetics that are optimised to move sweat away from your body and dry quickly. Garments constructed from merino wool, such as the Icebreaker clothing range, are also a good option for longer trips. Not only are they warm and highly breathable, but merino is naturally antimicrobial and odour resistant!
Are there ethical and sustainable clothing options in the Paddy Pallin range?
As a company, Paddy Pallin is passionate about sharing nature, but also protecting it for generations to come. Part of this is working with brands who share and embody these beliefs. Many of the brands Paddy Pallin stock are industry leaders in producing sustainable, ethical and recycled products. Patagonia, for example, is well known for creating top-quality hard-wearing clothes, that are also not destructive to our planet. One of the initiatives Paddy Pallin support is our Don’t Bag the Environment campaign. Where we donate 20c to an environmental or conservation effort, each and every time a customer declines to take a bag. But if you do need a bag, our sturdy paper bags are also constructed from recycled materials!
