/ Where are all the cheap full-zip waterproof pants?
I am looking for a large size.
They must be waterproof, have full length side zips and be relatively packable.
Not really bothered about any other features.
Second the Marmot Precips, realtively inexpensive and don't take up much space in the bag.
Thanks for the suggestions, I have seen the Precips and they are hardly cheap, weighing in at 70 pounds in most places - any other bargains to be had?
I was thinking around the 50 pound mark.
Me and my Mrs have some black Berghaus 'Deluge' trousers we got from Cotswolds...they've stood up to whatever the weather has thrown at us so far.
Zips are 3/4 length as opposed to full length but I've found that's more than enough to make it really easy to get over boots.
(They weigh in at the £30-45 range by the way)
Possibly these ones but I'm not sure what I have.
On a related note, what is the point of the mesh liner inside some cheaper waterproof coats/trousers?
Does it let a bit of air circulate, thus making them a bit more breathable than having the crisp packet material right on top of whatever is underneath?
Decathlon forclaz 200 overtrousers. Crampon patches and all for fifty. Better than the deluges by a country yard.
Forclaz 300 - Full zip for 40 notes nice one
The Deluge pants are very cheap from gooutdoors at the moment but still only 3/4 leg.
