Topic - Lightweight vs Durable shells

tomwalton - on 27 Mar 2013
I'm looking at getting a new shell jacket and have come to love the smock design.

I'm not sure whether to go with a lightweight gore-tex design such as the Berghaus Asgard and just whip the shell on and off regarding the rain; or whether to use a Paramo Aspira for all conditions.

I've heard that Paramos run very hot but are very durable, however would a Gore-text pro shell or similar would wick better?

Looking for year round use with trips to Scotland and France in both summer and winter planned and am just undecided.

Anyone have any advice?
