I'm a fabric snob and I've never bought anything before that wasn't basically cotton, wool or leather. But these are wonderful for the seaside where I live where the wind blows constantly and it's always moist off the sea.
No sweaty feeling. Comforting warmth. Dry in all reasonable conditions of wet air and rain.

These Regatta lined leisure trousers represent excellent value at this unmatched price. They are ideally suited for those wet and windy days out walking or cycling when you might otherwise prefer to remain at home rather than face the inclement weather. The size seems to be correctly quoted but because of their snug fit allows very little to be stuffed into the pockets. I purchased the the first pair as a trial and subsequently followed up with an additional pair because of their suitability. I would recommend their purchase to anyone with similar requirements.
In the colder weather we go for "One Trouser" walks or "Two Trouser" walks when I pull a pair of fleece trousers over my tracksuit bottoms. Does the job but bulky and restrictive. Hence buying a pair of these Regatta lined. Lightweight by comparison, I put them on one cold day this summer and had to take them off before I`d left the house. Whew! Hot! So I haven`t worn them in earnest yet but I think they will be ideal. They are strong so they`ll happily go overland but I wouldn`t go deerstalking in them as they are a bit noisy, rustling. I also have an unlined pair which I wore on one of those really drizzly days and they repelled the wet quite adequately. In nice subtle green they are fairly smart so I won`t be ashamed to go shopping in them either. I know I`m female in male trousers but that`s my shape: women`s trousers just don`t fit me and men`s do. It`s an embarrasment trying on in a shop but buying from Amazon solves that problem!
These trousers fit me perfectly and have lots of really useful pockets. The partly elasticated waist means that they are comfortable when performing all sorts of movement and also when seated for long periods on public transport !! They are capable of being "brushed off" so stay smart enough to be out and about.
I DO NOT SKI OR GO TO COLD PLACES BUT EVEN THEN BECUASE OF HEALTH ISSUES I FEEL COLD EVEN WHEN THE HEATING IS ON BUT THESE TROUSER HELPED ME IN THE WINTER WEATHER THAT WE JUST HAD. THEY ARRIVED VERY QUICKLY AND I HAVE WORN THEM A LOT OF TIMES. I WOULD RECKOMENT THEM AND I WILL BE BUYING MORE FOR NEXT WINTER.
