Gear-Zone Guide to Waterproof Trousers
Posted by Neil | October 12, 2011
Waterproofs should be one of the most important items of clothing in any outdoor enthusiast’s wardrobe, from lightweight walking jackets to storm-proof overtrousers, designed to keep out the worst that Mother Nature can throw at you.
Here at Gear-Zone, we have a comprehensive range of waterproof trousers, from the aptly-named Storm Overtrousers and Deluge Trousers from Berghaus, to Montane’s Atomic Dt and Featherlight Pants, both of which pack down to the size of a small orange to take up the tiniest space in your rucksack.
Being prepared is the secret of any outdoor experience, and with autumn in the UK fast turning to winter, weather protection from torrential downpours at this time of year is paramount.
We have Venture Pants and Half Zips from The North Face, the women-specific Vapour Rise Trail Pant and Vidda Pant from Rab, Regatta’s Active Packaways and Craghoppers’ classic Ridge Cargo Waterproof Trousers and their Aira Stretch for the ladies.
All designed for hardy lovers of the great outdoors, from hill walkers to hikers, mountain men to motorcyclists, our range of waterproof trousers has something for everyone, however they choose to embrace the call of the wild or the open road.
Now, a newcomer to the Craghoppers’ stable has arrived in the shape of the Steal Stretch Trousers, built for year-round use to protect you from the elements.
Waterproof and breathable, an AquaDry membrane not only keeps the weather at bay in the heaviest downpour, but releases any uncomfortable body moisture build-up too, leaving you dry from the outside in and the inside out.
Team up with our selection of weather-proof jackets from Berghaus, Montane, Mammut and OMM, to name but a few, and for complete wet weather protection, round off with our choice of leg-protective gaiters from Extremities, Outdoor Research, Black Diamond and Rab.
