I bought these to go over my work trousers so that I could ride to work on my bike in wet weather. They have been brilliant! They come with their own waterproof bag so I've been shaking the rain off and storing them in there during work. The colour on the picture is very similar and I received the item well within the time. Thanks.

Black Waterpoof Trousers - appearance is very much as specified, but trouser length is slightly longer than anticipated (but then, I'm only 5ft 3ins). So, roll up/down to desired length. Elasticated waist means they may be a little snug. The trousers truly give protection from wind and rain. They've arrived in a matching, and very nifty, waterproof, pack-away, zipped pouch. So, trousers can be folded and packed away inside the pouch, and be attached to a backpack. The pouch has attached hook which makes this possible. Very light, very practical.
the item itself really is of terrible quality, even worse than I predicted given the comments by other buyers here. The material tore within about 30 seconds of me taking it out of the zipper bag which it comes in. Ironically I think the zipper bag is of better quality than the trousers themselves! I got a X Large size which is a little too big for me but acceptable, I am of average height 5 foot 10 and thick build. the price is reasonable, but the quality of the item itself really is dreadful, so don't buy this if you're hoping to get lots of wear out of it.
I knew they would be slightly large, as intended. I'm usually a 10/12 and they look big on me, which I don't care, cause then it is easy to put them on top of whatever I'm wearing. Nonetheless, there is an inconvenience in case you have trekking boots; in the ankle zone they don't enlarge. There is an adjustment button, but it is not enough so you can pass them through easily. They endured a nice storm in the NW Highlands already, but I got slightly wet inside. So maybe they are still not perfect for open field work.
I'm short (5') so I ordered children's trousers and they fit me fine - still too long though but I expected this. They have poppers on the ankle so there is no problem with them covering my feet. The waist size is ok too and I'm a ladies size 8 to 10. I've not used them in the rain yet so can't say how waterproof they are.
