Totally 100% waterproof trousers suggestions request
« on: June 07, 2017, 10:01:50 PM »
Hi all,
my old faithful Rukka overtrousers have finally bitten the dust.  They only lasted 19 Years, I'm really disappointed, stuff just doesn't last anymore!  :016:
I sometimes wear leathers, sometimes armoured denim jeans, or a Goretex pair of armoured textile trousers and I'm happy with all of them, but sometimes, for a full 6hour day in the torrential winter rain, a pair of old fashioned fully rubberised pair of 100% waterproof overtrousers is my tool of choice.  £20 to £40 usually.   Breathability is not required, nor armour - I wear these over my normal riding trouser choice.  Getting hot is not a problem.

Rukka don't make my old type anymore, so I'm looking for replacements - Helly Hansen do a pair at Screwfix for £20, which don't have pockets (good),  do have draw string waist and welded seams (good), and press studs for trouser leg bottoms (good).  Only problem is, I'm 6'5", slim, and have long legs, so the 33" leg for my waist is going to be a tiny bit short.  For £20 though, it's not a major problem.

Anyone know that brand or have any other suggestions? 
Many thanks,
G.

Very happy with my Weise waterproof overtrousers - used for commuting. Mine are the winter, thermal variety and I will probably get the summer variety when the current cheapo pair start to leak.
