/ Best trousers for scottish winter?
Ordinarily, I wear powerstretch pants, a thin softshell layer and then overtrousers on top, but having knackered the waterproofs, I'm looking to upgrade to something a bit more substantial - can I get some recommendations on salopettes (preferably with braces and those helpful reinforced ankle patches...)?
I use Patagonia winter guide (previously Mixmasters) when it's very cold, no waterproof over the top.
These are great
Anything, as long as they come in brown.
Have a pair of Patagonia Alpine Guide pants if you're interested?
Of course, depending on how shredded, the waterproofs could be repaired:
If not, then the Decathlon Simond mountaineering pants are regularly discussed on these sort of threads... Soft shell trousers. Not strictly salopettes, but pretty close. £40
