These Paramo Cascada pants are incredibly comfortable against the skin, but may be too long and too baggy – meaning mud quickly works its way up the insides of the legs. There’s only a basic drawcord adjuster at the waist. These are effectively waterproof trousers however, with the breathability of normal pants, so they’re superb in bad weather. They’re too warm for milder days, even with the leg zips open and they look a bit too ‘full-on’.
Verdict: Fully waterproof trousers with the comfort and breathability of ordinary walking trousers. Perfect for bad weather but they get very warm on milder days and aren’t the most stylish pair.
