Wore trousers in heavy rain at the coast today. Comfortable, definitely waterproof and breathable 5 stars.
I have finally found products that are genuinely waterproof, during the pandemic year I've averaged 12 miles 30000 steps every day no matter what the weather was like [even Christmas] 2 other cheaper so-called waterproof garments were purchased from another supplier, and my money was wasted, if you want genuine protection buy the Quechua mh500 range and stay protected, I've even got the superb Quechua boots and shoes, thanks
Brilliant waterproofing and premium quality. I don't find the fit great and could do with an option of 32 waist and length 32/33. It would be good to have waterproof zips on pockets to zip through to regular trouser for easy access. Other then those niggly things great trouser and has saved me from being soaking wet up a mountain and the golf course several times.
Fits true to size, find it hard someties with these Euro sizes, whether to go to size or next one up. As these were in inches went for true to size. So obviosuly slightly over size to fit over normal trousers, but not so oversize you look daft. So I got a 32" Im 6'3" and usually a 32" waist with 33 inside leg, these fit perfect. Roll up pretty tight to fit in pack. Decent for the job the were purchased for
Just back from a downpour walking the dog. If they were going to leak. Today's downpour would have been the time for it to happen. So really happy from that perspective. I'm tall and thin and these trousers are a snug fit, unlike other waterproof trousers I've had which fit like clown trousers. The zips are really practical in allowing you to take them off or put them on with your boots/shoes on. Only giving it a four as it's really frustrating that there are no pockets or access to my trousers underneath the waterproofs.
Good fit and freedom of movement. Haven't been tried in wet conditions yet...
I have used it twice and it has lived up to its claims
Too noisy. Returned
I have never used such comfortable and reliable rain wear pants that is light weight and comfortable. I used it during ab heavy rain and not even a single drop of water touched my pants which were worn inside
Writing this review after 3 years (and still continues) use on mostky bike rides and treks (used it in monsoon and snow). The quality, durability and reliability is unmatched. It feels expensive to buy at first, but if you consider that this trouser easily lasts 3 years + vs the cheaper one's that probably have to be replaced every monsoon, you feel it's truly worth. I also love the fit, not clingy nor baggy. It flows just right, especially over boots. The fabric is breathable and does not make you sweat. Highly recommend.
Fully waterproof, good breathability, lightweight and it has sealed zippers on sides so you can put it on without taking yours boots off.Have used in heavy rains on highways riding motorcycle and not a damp patch inside.Totally recommended.
Weightless, everything is good, u don't get any reflectives over the pant, fullfills the usage, and find and select the proper size while purchasing.

3-layer component with membrane
The waterproof rating of a product depends on the following two main criteria: its component and its construction.This product was made with a membrane.This is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable.It has the advantage of being flexible, lightweight and breathable.
3 layer design: The membrane is glued between the outer and inner fabric. We use it for durable and high performance over-trousers
Laboratory tests are conducted to guarantee the waterproof rating of a component. This is done by measuring the fabric's resistance to water pressure expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.A component with a waterproof rating of 10,000 mm can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by a 10,000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 10,000 Schmerbers.
To check the waterproofing of the overtrousers, we carry out laboratory tests to simulate rainy weather.This garment has been validated in a shower test under 100 L/sqm/hr of water for 3 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a mountain storm.
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. The fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Water-repellent properties can be reactivated by tumble drying the trousers for 10 minutes on low temperature or by using a reactivating spray.( Ref: 8551983)
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabricRET ≤ 12: breathable fabricRET ≤ 20: not very breathable fabricThis product was assessed at 8 RET
