Features to Note:

In-use Test:

I tested the Paramo Katmai walking shirt on a particularly 'sweaty' climb up Pike of Blisco in the Lake District and - as you'd expect from Páramo - the fabric really did deal with perspiration superbly, drying out quickly and keeping me comfortable.

The Katmai shirt fits well and has a lovely soft feel. The fabric itself has a good level of protection against UV and the addition of a proper collar means this can be turned up for extra protection.

It washes well, dries quickly and is ready to wear without ironing. The sleeves have cuffs which can be fastened in several different positions including 'rolled up'.

There are two good sized chest pockets with velcro fastenings and another 'secret' zipped pocket big enough for a passport/folded OS map.

At £50 this may not be the cheapest addition to your rucksac but that aside - for versatility, overall performance and style, it's difficult to see how a shirt like this could be any better.

Buying Advice:

The Paramo Katmai uses an extremely comfortable fabric that deals with perspiration superbly. £50 may be a bit steep for some.
