Fantastic lightweight overtrousers!, 21 July 2014
By Boudreaux (cheltenham)
Purchased a pair of these as I wanted to have a pair of trousers for summer use in my pack. I took these on a trip to the Lake District where they were exposed to some typical Lakeland weather! They performed faultlessly, you really do hardly notice that they're on. The fabric is so light but reassuringly robust so I have no issues there. No problem with weather resistance or venting but I do note other comments regarding the zips which are a little delicate. The trousers pack into a stuff sack about the size of a Grapefruit so take up hardly any pack space. There are no pockets but these are overtrousers so you shouldn't expect them! A tip I would give for using them is to store them fully unzipped, this does make donning them so much easier! All in all an excellent product that is highly recommended!
Usual Berghaus quality as expected, 25 March 2014

I tried on several rivals and these were the easiest to get on and off. The zip is a two way zip, so you can leave a gap at the top to get into a pocket, this is really useful
Lightweight but Easily ripped and Zipper Snags too easily, 22 January 2014
By gerald (Ireland)
Had 1 pair only 4 weeks when zipper snagged and could not open it.
Reported the fault to Berghaus - they informed to return to origional supplier shop - Reported the fault to the pant supplier- they kindly replaced with new pair but the new pair with same zip design - as expected exactly same problem occured 2 weeks later. Lightweight-Easily ripped and Zipper Snags too easily which is a pain when you need to put the pants on quickly for showers. Berghaus did not help me solve the problem so that zip snag did not cause repeat failure. Must do better.
Very good, 19 November 2013

They are light and pack down really well. Kept me dry in some harsh welsh rain so far.
Overtrousers review, 19 November 2013
By MTBguy (Warrington)
Bought a pair of these a few weeks ago after several soakings. They are very light and convienient to put on. Very good weatherproofing and easily packed away.
Pity there is not any reflective piping.
