Waterproof cycling trousers can be an awkward compromise. I have a pertex pair which keep even heavy downpours out, but are unlined, and like sails (despite being the correct size for me) which is fine if the wind is behind, but really hard work with side and head winds. Also, being self-conscious, I do not like wearing them to wander around in town, because they are not exactly stylish.

These Tenn trousers have proven to be perfect for my needs.

FIT: I bought the size to fit me and they are neither restrictive or baggy. "Quadzilla", or the average prop-forward would find them a little tight. I can fit jeans underneath, without too much bother, but I would suggest a size up, if the intention is to use them frequently as true over-trousers. The fact that they are on the narrow side is excellent for reducing wind resistance. Although the waist is elasticated (with rubber "grippers" in the hem for each hip), there is a zip and popper fastening for the waist which means they are a much neater fit then elastic-only trousers. The leg length suits me perfectly, but very tall thin people would probably not find a standard size to fit them well.

WEATHER PROOFING: Certainly wind-resistant. Two (25-mile) rides in sub 10 Deg C with only cycling shorts underneath. No problem with the cold, and the mesh lining meant they were not unpleasant to wear. On one of the rides (for the last five miles) I was in a heavy shower of rain which did not penetrate the material. (Because I prefer to enjoy my rides, I don't have any intention of testing them to their limit. But if I am out in them and get caught in a cloudburst, I will add to this review.) "Breathability" is subjective. All I can say for certain is that although I have not tested them in summer rain, the insides were not horribly sweaty after 25 miles of relatively hard riding.

STYLING: Apart from the necessarily baggy backside (cut for cycling, not for looking cool whilst leaning nonchalantly against walls), they are not bad. As can be seen in the pictures, the knees are pleated (again for a better fit whilst on a bike), and the leg zips and hook&loop straps allow decent adjustment of the lower sections. I didn't mind wandering around town the other day in them (unlike with my pertex pair which are more like two dustbin liners).

OVERALL: If I win a load of money, I might try some of the £100+ trousers, but in the meantime, I am more than happy with these at around the £30 mark. They appear to be really well made (only time will reveal weaknesses in the manufacture). The fact that there are two good-sized (zipped) front pockets (not mentioned in the blurb above) adds to the appeal as really usable waterproof trousers.

I live on the edge of Dartmoor and commute into work 26 miles round trip. It has been wet, windy and cold these past few days and the trousers have been great keeping the wet out and working hard on the breathable front. Came off this morning on some black ice putting a hole in the elbow of my jacket but the trousers though scuffed stood up to the slide intact! They arrived when Tenn said they would and for 30 odd quid they are a great bit of kit.

Bought these to use on a MTB. Splashing through mud and water was without issue and they even kept me dry when I came off and landed in a puddle! Definitely recommend going for a size up if you are in the mid-top of the size range. They are elasticated at the waist but still quite tight fitting. I'm 6 ft and found the length to be about right for me but bear in mind they are a waist fit rather than hip fit like most jeans. They are a bit baggy on the thigh but very comfortable on the bike. Good buy.

Came on time. Fitted correctly and keeps out the rain (and mud, around here). Minor gripe, the calf/ankle adjustment could be a bit tighter, for me anyway.

They keep the wind out and the rain mostly but I have had a wet bum once for some reason. They are very baggy looking around the top so not flattering to your figure. The lover leg fastenings are useful to keep the wind out and keep them out of your chain.

These trousers were a present to my nephew and had them sent straight to him so I wasn't sure of the quality. When I saw him next I was very pleased to see the cycling trousers were just what I hoped they would be, a good quality.

My tailor reckons I'm a 33–34". I just remeasured and that's still right. Having read a few comments about these trousers being too small I ordered the L 34–36" thinking that would be okay. Nope. The fit down the leg is fine but I have a muffin top! Definitely not comfortable enough to cycle in. I've just measured the trousers and I make them to be about 32" unstretched.
I'd happily replace them for XL but there's no option on the Replace item form and however you return them you have to pay £6! Very unhappy with this.
Strongly recommend you add 3–4" to your waist size before buying.

I got them my size but just about fit.However, had my build been slightly stockier I would not have been able to close the button. Moreover, I can only use them on top of cycling tights cannot wear shorts underneath or other trousers.

Other than that the quality is good, definitely waterproof and slightly breathable.

I thought that being a 34" waist ordering a 34" to 36" things would be good.......nope! When I measured the waist they were 32.5", needless to say I kept popping the popper!! If they were made 34" they would be a good purchase. ORDER BIG!! Now I have to pay nearly £8 to send them back. Thanks for absolutely nothing and it costing me!! Only got one star as the review system won't let me put no stars.

Bought these and cycled in them often. Problem is when it rains hard, unless you have rear mud guards these are far from waterproof! Yes they keep you warm in the wind but that's it. Waste of money.
