Hi Peter,
Paramo will be allowed waterproofs on the 100. I'll raise the issue with regards to the wording on the rules with our 100 coordinator when he's fit to take on the portfolio again. In the meantime, please be assured that there will be no issue on Y 100 Sir Fynwy.
Interestingly, whilst I have always had a good experience with Paramo, I am aware that some entrants on Hadrian Hundred stated that they could feel water leaking through their Paprmo garments due to the driving rain.

Regards,

David

The 2020 100 rules specify waterproofs must have taped seams. This would seem to bar the widely used Paramo garments that rely on a different system from Goretex etc. Will Paramo kit not be allowed on the 100?
