These waterproof trousers fit incredibly well. They have large stretchy panels at the sides to accommodate lots of women’s sizes and shapes. As such, they are incredibly comfortable and quick to pull on. The fabric used has two thicknesses depending on its location. High impact areas get thicker material for durability and the other areas, particularly between the thighs and front of the hip joints get thinner material which aids movement and prevents unnecessary rubbing. The double way leg zips at the sides make donning them in boots quick and easy and provide ventilation. They tapered legs lead to an additional stretchy panel at the ankle so they fit easily over boots, creating a seal and reducing any excess material. Finally, and most importantly, they kept my legs dry without any of the bulky feeling you get with heavy duty waterproofs, packing down small and weighing only 246g.
▶ Verdict: A fantastic fit, comfortable to wear and small pack size – perfect!
▶ Best for: Activities which require fast and light movement.
