Lightweight, waterproof trousers
I read the reviews about these trousers before purchase and and agree with others that they are snug as over-trousers for commuting (and tight around my waist). However, they do fit and are definitely waterproof. I bought them because they have the shoe covers built in but the more I wear them the more I wonder whether this is the best option. The 'shoe protection' collects the water draining off the trousers when hung on a hanger (as needed at my workplace) and is usually still wet when I put them back on. The bottom of each leg has a large zip which I assumed was to allow you to take off the trousers over the shoes. This is not possible in my case because I wear large waterproof trainers and with the legs of the trousers being so snug I got them half way off and got stuck. It was quite amusing to the other person in the changing room.
However, these are all minor gripes when compared to what I bought them for (to be waterproof) and in summary I'd say these trousers are a good purchase and definitely good value for money.
From the top, these have an elasticated waistband, popper fastening and Velcro fly - they're easy to get on, in other words. Then, have have pocket openings! I can't overstate how important this is. Not actual pockets, but pocket openings, so you can get to your actual trouser pockets underneath; you can get to your bike lock keys and money easily, without having to take the overtrousers off. And these are zippered openings - so many cheaper overtrousers just have slits for accessing pockets, completely ignoring the fact that the purpose of overtrousers is to keep you dry, and a gaping pocket slit just lets water in...
The side of the lower leg is zippered too, making it easy to put the overtrousers on when you've got shoes on. And the backs of the lower legs are bright yellow - a nice safety feature, as is the clip on each lower leg allowing you to attach small lights for added visibility. And finally, the legs end in elastic under-shoe straps to keep the trousers from riding up and - brilliantly - waterproof caps to keep the worst off your shoes too.
Finally, the whole lot folds up into its own back pocket, which is again that hi-viz, fluorescent yellow/green colour, and has integrated Velcro straps so that you can tie it onto something (your frame, for example) if you've run out of pockets and bag space. Yes, they really have thought of everything.
pants are good but in rain the heels are wet.
Tested these to the full when cycling through a small flood and a car coming the other way chose not to slow down giving me a full drenching- not a drop went through!
I am 5'2" and ordered extra small although the size guide suggested medium. They fit but are still quite long and although I like the shoe covers they are really too big for my size 4 feet Would be good if there was some way to turn them up or adjust for shorter legs or have a women's fit. The belt for putting it round your waist when packed away could be a bit bigger Great value for money though.
