I have used a pair of these for the past year and have been very impressed with the water repelancy, breathability and most of all the weight! Thay are so light you just don't know you are wearing them, especially compared to old style rain pants.

Being able to easily put them on and take them off over boots, due to the full length zips, is brilliant. Just be a bit careful not to snag the zips as I have done once or twice. I hold my thumb against the material as I zip which seems to ensure no snags. Fantastic for golf as well as hiking!

I buy quite a lot of stuff from Amazon (loads in fact)... and unfortunately, this is the first item that I will be returning! There is nothing wrong with the quality or features of the product... if size were not an issue, they would be getting 5 stars. Read on for more details.

I don't normally order clothes on-line, however these trousers were £40 cheaper on Amazon than in-store... a significant saving. As I am 6' 4" I made a point of trying these on in an outdoor store prior to ordering. The good news was that they fit perfectly (I made a note of the size as 'XL'). Naturally, I assumed that if I ordered a pair of 'XL' trousers via Amazon, they would also fit. Unfortunately it is dangerous to assume, and the trousers I received are too short ...they arrived labelled as "XL WAIST (82CM) R31 LEG (79CM)".

Upon checking the Berghaus website, it seems that these trousers actually come in no less than 18 different sizes!!! There are 6 different waists (including XS) and 3 different leg lengths (29", 31" and 33"). At the time of writing, Amazon is only offering these in the following sizes (and there is no mention of leg length in the description or sizing chart!):-

Small
Medium
Large
X-Large
xx-large

I'm assuming that Amazon probably only stock the 31" leg... which is fair enough, but this should be mentioned in the description in my opinion. A 31" leg will probably be fine for many people... but possibly not if you are shorter/taller than average. I suggest you double check the Berghaus website for a more detailed sizing guide, and contact Amazon to check the leg length before ordering.

UPDATE 13/1/10
After returning these trousers and explaining the above issue, it looks like Amazon have now updated the product description and sizing accordingly... so well done Amazon!

Very good trousers - lightweight, durable and easy to run in (a little noisy - but the protection is worth it)They breath well and are fully waterproof - used on the OMM (formerly KIMM) and in training on the hills - love them

I bought the slightly longer pair to ensure drips go over the boots or when running over the trainers a little - would advise others to do the same.

I hate waterproof trousers, but there are times when safety comes first, so I bought these reluctantly. And I love them. I have been known to wear them when its not even raining, and they're even OK for cycling. I've spent my whole life saying I didn't need GoreTex - why didn't I just buy it before? They're very light, pack up into a tiny bag, and the thigh length zips mean you can put them on very quickly over walking boots. Strongly recommended.

Excellent waterproofing, no condensation inside after four hours walking in the rain. Look smart. Very good price compared to high street retailers. Sizing not generous for wearing over walking clothes, try a size larger than you would normally expect but a shaped leg and extra room at the knees provides good room for walking ie trousers don't strain when walking uphill. Good full length zip. Only real downside is no pockets or easy access to pockets in trousers worn underneath.

I bought Berghaus Paclite trousers a couple of months ago, have worn them in the most inclement weather and they really do the job well: extremely lightweight yet completely waterproof, easy to get on due to the zips going all the way up close to the hip and the right length (I have short legs and was able to get them the correct leg length).

My and my husband have paclite jackets & trousers. Used them on the Yorkshire 3 peaks walk - where it was really heavy rain for over half of the 25 miles and they kept us dry without being uncomfortable. The zipped legs make them easy to put on and they're not really baggy like some waterproofs. They are slightly small fitting, so getting a size bigger makes it easier to get them on over other walking gear when it's wet and windy. They are lightweight and pack away really small in the rucksack too, so you can take them with you on every walk.

I am a dog walker and out in all weathers all of the day.

I mainly walk on a high open area where wind and rain are common. I can say honestly these trousers keep out the wind and rain. The only problem is they do not have pocket holes.

being Gor-tex I would not compare these to any other waterproof trousers out there. This leaves all others behind. They come in a small stuff sack which is handy. They will easily fit in your hand and take up very little room in a bag. They are a must for anyone who works outside.
