These waterproof trousers from Stormlite are warm, probably due to a very loose lining, and there is also a little condensation build-up on energetic walks. The elasticated/drawcord waist and Velcro ankle tabs work OK. The knee-length zips have gussets for added rain protection, but these limit space when pulling over boots, and can also snag in the zips. They roll neatly away into the back pocket.
Verdict: These are OK, but there are others that will do a better job for the money.
Features: drawcord waist, Velcro ankle tabs
