The addition of a lining makes low-priced overtrousers far more comfortable, and this means the Sprayway Santiago/Atlanta Rainpant is a good option for those with limited funds. The trouser benefits from a calf-length zip so it can more easily be put on without removing boots, although this is still not as easy as when the trouser has a full-length zip of course. The ankle cuff also gets a Velcro adjuster so you can nip in any bagginess. The waist is elasticated and has an elasticated drawcord, so you can get a reasonable fit. For the price the Sprayway Santiago/Atlanta Rainpant is a great option – to better these, you’ll have to spend more cash.

The Sprayway Santiago/Atlanta Rainpant is the best choice for general walking in our review.
