Very light and packable trousers, so will definitely suit those who prefer to have waterproofs in their packs for emergencies only. But against them, they are flimsier than most. The sizing is very large and the leg zips are quite short, although it is possible to slip them over boots, just. They have a single pocket, which also doubles as a stuff sack – useful for carrying them. In use, they kept rain out but seemed to wet-out quite quickly, and they didn’t breathe as well as some.
