Hillgear has been a Páramo Clothing specialist since 1994 when we recognised Páramo gear's outstanding performance in mountaineering. As a Premier Páramo Retailer, we have one of the largest stocks of Páramo in Scotland including Naturally Páramo - rustle-free garments in muted colours, popular with wildlife-watchers and photographers. And as a Páramo Shop-in-Shop retailer, Hillgear has a dedicated Páramo section within our Aboyne shop with a specially selected range replenished automatically by Páramo so you can find the perfect outdoor garment.
We also participate in the Páramo Recycling Scheme. Dispose of your unwanted Páramo product through our shop and you'll receive a discount off future purchases. Read more here>
