These waterproof trousers from Sprayway have impressive tough ripstop polyester fabric, which doesn’t feel as ‘plastic’ as some. They fit well, thanks to a shock cord waist adjuster, which is, however, a little more difficult to secure than some. These lined trousers are among the heaviest and warmest around, but they breathe well and keep water out. They have gusseted knee-length zips.
Verdict: Great quality and built to last, even if they don’t perform as well as some. They also roll away into the back pocket.
Features: ripstop polyester fabric, shock cord waist adjuster, gusseted knee-length zips
