Not especially stylish but they are a good buy, wash & wear well........
on 1 April 2015
This is the second pair of these over trousers I have bought, the first pair were pinched off my washing line last week!
At 6ft I am very tall & usually wear a size 10-12. I ordered a size 12 Long & they fit perfectly. I do tend to wear them over leggings/jodhpurs so if you are a largish size 12 or want to wear them over formal walking trousers I would recommend you go up a size.
The over trousers aren't terribly stylish but are definitely 100% waterproof as I have worn them many times in torrential rain. They are good value for money, light weight & breathable.
As I often wear them over my Hunter Wellington boots the zip & popper fastenings are ideal, meaning I can easily get the boots on once I have the over trousers on. The fit is quite loose around the calf & this means the full length Hunter boots fit under the trousers no problem.
I have washed the previous pair numerous times & after about 3-4 years of quite significant use they were as good as new......no wonder someone decided to nick them!
There are lots of over trousers out there, I looked at Rohan & Mountain Equipment etc but non offer the different leg lengths which are essential if you are either tall or quite short. At RRP £50 they are a good buy.
