These winter trousers from Sprayway are a little on the big side, but an elasticated waist and belt loops help get a fairly decent fit. The waterproof lining feels surprisingly comfy against the skin, and the stretch fabric aids movement. A bit baggy in the legs. Although they look and feel like a traditional pair of walking trousers, they are actually totally waterproof. Against them, they are not as warm or breathable as some.
Verdict: A comfy compromise between traditional trousers and waterproof overtrousers, but not too warm and breathable. Ideal for less energetic walking, especially in the wet.
Features: Waterproof lining, stretch fabric, elasticated waist
