Have had Toggi waterproof trousers before and can honestly say that although they are expensive they are well worth the money which is why I bought another pair. The last pair I had lasted me several years after daily wear through fields and riding and mucking out etc. They are very comfortable to wear, great that they now come in different leg lengths as I am only 5ft 1 and the short pair fit perfectly. Slightly bigger fit than they used to be now that they are unisex, previously had a size 8 but still fit perfectly into a size 8 which clothes on underneath. The trousers wash well and remain weatherproof.

I bought these waterproof trousers for my daughter, who has been looking for a pair for ages, but always found them much too long. The XXS short length are an excellent fit on her when worn over jodhpurs - she is 5'2" tall and normally takes a size 8 in trousers. They are very well shaped, so you can ride, crouch down, move around without stretching the seams, but they are not baggy - often waterproof trousers seem to be either too tight across the bottom, or far too baggy in the legs so they balloon out, but these trousers are just right. They are described as 'unisex' which often means they don't fit around a woman's hips, or are baggy and shapeless, but they actually fit really well on a female figure.
The material has a soft, fabric-like feel, not plasticky, but they are thick enough to be windproof as well as waterproof. They have very deep zipped front pockets. The waist is elasticated and fits quite high at the back which is good when you are riding and bending down to work. There are zips on the outer seam of the bottom half of each leg to help with fitting over boots - they are also slim enough to tuck into muck boots if you are wearing the trousers for warmth and not worried about rain dripping down. The Toggi logo on the side is a bit conspicuous but not offensive. The trousers can be machine washed with non-biological detergent but not tumble-dried.
These are expensive and I was a bit reluctant to pay this much, but I'm really pleased with the quality and fit of these trousers, and hope they will last.
