Two things.

 

Black trousers are only ‘high visibility’ at a KKK meeting.

 

They are nearly £200!

 

No wonder no one replied!

Thirdly, why’s the top layer called a base layer?

Bought pair of Hydrowear ‘Simply no sweat’ rain trousers last winter, best I’ve had so far. I had never seen the brand before , hill farmers around here swear by them.

i paid €70 for them at a fundraiser but have since seen them online for €49. 
have had stein and berghaus in the past , not bad but these are tougher

You get a couple of hi viz stripes, what more do you want for £200 😄

 

We just copied and pasted the description from the manufactures site, I did think it looked a bit silly tbh. On the plus side with this new design of trouser if you do need a rail track spec trouser you can just change the skin. They would of been handy during our powerline work days when a new pair of trousers would be ruined within a day due to climbing barbwire fences.

 

Barbwire fences crossing farmers fields to do some honest work, not climbing a barbwire fence to steal something before some chimes in. 😁

The Karrimor ones from Sports Direct are nothing short of amazing for under £20. I have a Mountain Equipment Goretex jacket and these trousers keep me just as waterproof!!!!

They do a bib and brace version too £40

I am so fed up with getting wet with sweat in cheap waterproof trousers.
