Topic - Robust but reasonably priced overtrousers?

Taurig - on 17 Nov 2012
Hey, just looking for some recommendations of fairly robust overtrousers for winter use that won't break the bank?

I have some Marmot Precip trousers that are OK for pulling over the softshells on the occasional soggy day, but they are a bit flimsy I'm doubting their waterproofness after the other half accidentally tumble dried them for several hours... I'm looking for something that I can wear in properly grim weather all day, perhaps with leggings underneath. I'd like the face fabric to be noticeably tougher and harder-wearing than the Precips. Full or 3/4 side zip not essential but nice, same with internal gaiters, braces and crampon patches. Weight not an issue, but I would like them be a traditional shell, rather than Paramo etc. as I think the extra insulation might limit their range of use. Is there anything about that can be had for around 100, up to about 150? 300 Arc'teryx salopettes look nice but are a bit out of my price range.
