I am delighted with these Berghaus Women's Stratus 1/4 zip waterproof/breathable over-trousers. I bought a size 10 and when they arrived I was wearing a pair of jeans. I slipped them on easily over the top and they were in fact a perfect fit, around the waist especially. Not too tight, not too loose. Excellent quality construction, as I would expect from Berhaus and the addition of the 1/4 zip makes getting them on over chunky walking boots a breeze. This is particularly important to me as these will be carried in my back-pack and I need to be able to get them on quickly, outdoors and whilst wearing all my kit. The great thing about these is that there will be virtually no sweating inside when wearing them, that's why the breathability is so important, to keep me dry. All in all a perfect purchase, once more delighted with Berghaus. I recommend these for any outdoor enthusiast who needs the security of comfort, dryness and style when outdoors. I particularly like the tapering of the legs so that even when wearing over-trousers I look good as I hate baggy legged trousers of any kind, they just don't suit me.
