So far I've only worn the Paramo Fuego in UK summer (!?) conditions - walking, scrambling, cycling and as casual wear during several long car and train journeys.
I've found it to be extremely comfortable and - as you'd expect from Páramo - the fabric really does 'deal with' perspiration superbly.
The Fuego shirt has a really soft feel and it's also reassuring to know that the fabric itself has a good level of protection against UV.
It washes well, dries quickly and is ready to wear - without going anywhere near an iron. The sleeves have cuffs which can be fastened with velcro in a variety of different positions.
You can also effectively turn the shirt into a short sleeved garment by rolling up the sleeves and fastening them in that position.
There are two zipped side pockets big enough for a passport. One of these has a smaller zipped 'secret' pocket, useful for money or keys.
This garment is designed for Women so the fit on the body is great, though my one gripe is that the sleeves (for me) were a little bit too short.
In conclusion, this may not be the cheapest shirt in your wardrobe but - for versatility, overall performance and style - it's really worth serious consideration.
The extremely comfortable fabric used for the Paramo Fuego deals with perspiration superbly. Sleeves a bit short for me.
